Antipodes Skincare

Antipodes skincare is one of those brands I have recently been introduced too and I am left wondering why I hadn't tried these two products that I am sharing with you today much sooner. A brand which hails all the way from New Zealand, its creator, Elizabeth Barbalich had a desire to create premium, scientifically validated, organic beauty products. She wanted them to be made from fully sustainable sources that could be used everyday plus the packaging features fully recyclable bottles and aluminum tubes, and 100% biodegradable card from sustainable forests.
Antipodes Skincare

Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask is described as being a deeply moisturising, cleansing and antioxidising treatment that leaves dull skin instantly soothed and intensely hydrated. Featuring a traditional remedy of New Zealand Maori people, manuka honey, it powerfully draws moisture to your skin to hydrate it and working alongside the ruby red pohutukawa bloom, which contains one of nature's finest antioxidants and has antiseptic properties.
Antipodes Skincare
I love the texture of this mask which is thick but too thick enough that when you are slathering it on it is as luxurious as it is lovely on the skin. Once you have slathered it onto your skin, you leave it for up to 15 minutes before removing what is left with warm water and a muslin cloth (which is my preference) and your skin feels just incredible. I use this mask when my skin is really playing up, so when it is dry, it feels sore and there is a threat of breakout with small bumps under the surface, all of which is usually when I am under the weather or under stress.  The Fragrance is also wonderful, slightly of vanilla with an undertone of Mandarin, they come together to create a really uplifting scent that is amazing to relax too. This mask retails for around £21 is such an amazing treat.


Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream is described as being a high-performance velvety moisturiser with a berries & hibiscus scent to enchant the trials of everyday life with moments of fragrant joy. This cream is incredibly luxuriously and really very fragrant. Designed for the hands and body, this moisturiser is for all skin types With a rich velvety texture, a little goes a very long way. On the skin it neither greasy or tacky to the touch and it begins to absorb on contact. It is enriched with Avocado oil which provides moisturising nutrients to the skin ,glorious Berry and South Pacific Hibiscus Flower Extracts which create the beautiful scent and it is just amazing on dry, tired and stressed skin.  

Antipodes Skincare
I have used this cream mainly on my legs and arms as the warm sunshine turns to a really hot day to rain and then we begin the start of Autumn. Keeping my skin moisturised, soft and smooth on both my arms and legs is something I am pretty rubbish at, but give me a pretty product and one that I grow to love, I will use it all up, just as I have done with this. I love how it leaves my skin feeling dewy and fragrant without any oily residue.  Retailing for around £29 this is one incredible cream.


It is fair to say that my introduction to Antipodes has been incredible and I absolutely adore both products and it has made me want to work my way right through the brand to see what other treasures and treats I can find.  Antipodes products can be found online from sites such as LookFantastic, Love Lula, FeelUnique and BeautyBay.
