Luxury is usually synonymous with major, life-changing purchases, but once in a while, high quality, pleasurable buys come in small packages.
1 Aesop Aromatique Hand Wash
Considered the most aspirational of hand washes, Aesop’s hand soap line comes in Resurrection (a fresh, citrus-based scent) and Reverence (an earthier offering with finely-milled pumice for exfoliation) with an accompanying hand soap. The black bottles and the apothecary-esque packaging makes a chic statement on all bathroom counters, and sends a message when made available to use in your guest room.
2 Aesop’s Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash
Pulling out a hand sanitizer has never felt so thrilling when using this offering from Aesop. Perfect for days on the go, be it while on travel or at work, the woody-citrus scent is appealing to every nose that scents it.

3 Marvis Toothpaste
With its charming, old-world packaging, Marvis toothpaste could easily be mistaken for a heritage toothcare brand that started operating in the 1700s (something like Santa Maria Novella but for teeth). Instead, Marvis started in the late 50s, reached its first peak of relevance in the 70s and is now enjoying a much hyped-heyday, being known as the toothpaste of the fashion set. The Clasic Strong Mint flavor is a good first choice for those looking to buy their first tube.

4 Chanel Le Coton
Cotton pads are usually purchased as an afterthought, but for those who subscribe to the notion that nothing less than the best should touch the face, Chanel’s offering comes in supremely soft tri-layer pads with an outer lining made from hand-picked cotton that allows you to indulge in the most luxurious skincare routine.
Chanel is available in Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La Plaza and Rustan’s Alabang Town Center
5 Slip Silk Eye Mask
