COBBLE HILL — Aesop, an Australian brand that specializes in skin, hair and body care, launched a temporary shop in the neighborhood earlier this month. 

Aesop, partnering with the Invisible Dog Art Center at 51 Bergen St., will carry its entire range of products as well as some “curious” home items like $29 “Post Poo Drops” and a $25 mouthwash, said spokeswoman Victoria Del Rico.

The company uses both plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients in products, according to its website

Aesop's hair products, facial creams, cleansers and gels can range from about $30 to more than $100. Pricier items include a $305 anti-oxidant cream for the skin around the eyes.

The shop will be open until the end of July.

Aesop and Invisible Dog are also presenting a temporary art installation designed by Frida Escobedo, an architect based in Mexico City.

The installation’s centerpiece is a timber-framed glass enclosure that holds meticulously segmented layers of sand that will shift gradually over the next few months, according to a press release.

The artwork reflects the change of seasons and melting snow, Escobedo said in a statement.

“This installation for Aesop reflects the passing of time in the way of an inverse sedimentation,” she said.

Aesop will also offer skin consultations to all clients.

Other recent openings and closings in the neighborhood include:

Coco Roco, a Peruvian restaurant at 139 Smith St., has closed its Cobble Hill location, as first reported by Pardon Me For Asking. A man who answered the phone at the restaurant’s second location in Park Slope confirmed the closure.
