Antipodes is an organic skincare brand that I have fallen in love with recently! The first product I’ve been using every night and it’s the Antipodes Divine Face Oil: Avocado Oil and Rosehip which has a base of 100% pure avocado oil. It’s designed to lift stressed, tired and sun-damaged skin, it reduces the appearance of lines and age spots whilst targeting scars and wrinkles. Even though my skin isn’t sun-damaged it does get very stressed and tired so was very excited to try out this product. I have oily skin so am sometimes not sure about using oils however this is very light and non-greasy, it also sinks into the skin quickly and I only need to use four drops so a little goes a long way. I’ve been using a few weeks and have seen such a difference in my skin, my skin tone is a lot more even and the small scars from spots on my skin have almost completely faded. I’m an avid face mask lover especially around my time of the month when my skin gets very stressed and is more prone to breakouts. The Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask is a moisturising, cleansing and anti-oxidising treatment. If you haven’t heard much about Manuka Honey it’s known to help hydrate your skin so is perfect for those colder months that are quickly approaching. I’ve been using this once a week by smoothing a thick layer over my face and neck in the evening for 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water. It leaves my skin feeling very smooth and moisturised, if I have a break out or it’s my time of the month it helps to calm my skin down and reduce the appearance of any spots that I may have. It’s also great to use on spots as soon as they appear as it stops them in their tracks and for me personally it prevents them getting any bigger or redder.
Overall I’m really impressed with both of these Antipodes products and it’s quickly becoming a skincare brand that I love, I’m going to carry on using these for a few more months and would love to try out more of their products. If you have any recommendations from this brand please let me know.
