Antipodes is a great skincare brand with a great ethos. Originating from New Zealand, it is inspired by nature from the sustainable ingredients they put in to their products to the recyclable packaging.
If you’re a skincare junkie like I am, you need to try something from Antipodes. For the past 7 or 8 months, I have been trying a small amount of skincare from the brand and so far, here are my faves!
My 3 Favourites From Antipodes Skincare
Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum*
Let’s start with the serum which I’ve been using for about 7 months now. The Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum is packed with boysenberry, blackcurrant, kiwifruit and Vinanza Grape which has antioxidant properties. If that’s not enough, it also contains shots of coffee berry and acai! The pipette dispenses a watery purple serum which you apply all over your face before moisturiser. It doesn't immediately feel as rich as other serums I've used but this is a potent blend all the same.
It works really well and you can see the results immediately, it felt like water to my face and my skin just soaks it up. It left no residue and I enjoyed using it. At £34, it is quite reasonably priced for a serum!
Aura Manuka Honey Mask*
This is one of my FAVOURITE face masks at the moment. If you can't decide what to buy from Antipodes, go for this face mask. It's brilliant! We all know how great Manuka Honey is for us so when it’s used in a beauty product, you know it’s going to be fab for your skin!
It doesn’t have that typical medicinal smell of Manuka honey, but it does have a lovely sweet citrus scent which I love. Treat your skin to this mask twice a week - I use it to pep my skin up mid-week and then again on the weekend to revitalise the tiredness.
It’s suitable for those with blemish-prone skin and you can treat spots as they appear with this Aura Manuka Honey Mask (£21.99) as it has antibacterial properties.
Hallelujah Lime and Patchouli Cleanser*
I’m going through a phase with cleansers at the moment. I want to try a cream formula that is just as good as Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish. I’ve tested A LOT of cream cleansers but nothing has comes as close as Liz Earle (yet). But maybe this one from Antipodes could be a good replacement? It is the newest addition to my mini collection of Antipodes skincare.
Unlike the thickness of Cleanse & Polish, the consistency of the Hallelujah Lime And Patchouli Cleanser (£21.99) can actually work this cream cleanser around your face. Massaging it around in circular motions for up to a minute to helps the circulation and gives better results (as well lifting every trace of make up!).
There are a lot of choices of cleansers in the Antipodes range but the Hallelujah Lime and Patchouli is suitable for all skin types. It’s a rich blend of carrot seed oil, avocado oil (high in Omega 3 and 9), macadamia nut oil, jojoba, natural lime and patchouli extract. All the goodness from those super ingredients give your skin a brighter, smoother, healthier glow.
