Antipodes Brightest Skin Ever Gift Set

I am a huge fan of Antipodes, a brand which, if you didn't know, hails from New Zealand. Elizabeth Barbalich, the brands founder, had a desire to create premium, scientifically validated collection of organic beauty products, but at the same time, she wanted them to be made from fully sustainable sources that could be used everyday. So, the packaging features fully recyclable bottles and aluminium tubes, and 100% biodegradable card from sustainable forests.
Antipodes Brightest Skin Ever Gift Set
The Antipodes Manuka Honey Heroes Collection is described as being for your 'Brightest Skin Ever' and inside is a trio of products that will moisturise, nourish, brighten, cleanse, clean, smooth, soften and best of all, they smell just amazing.

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.

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.

The second product is the Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Light Day Cream and this is quite the little star of the show, though it wont replace my love for the mask above.

This cream is enriched with Bee Venom and Mamaku Black Fern, which delivers a gentle lifting effect, then we have Manuka honey, which boasts antibacterial properties, tackles blemishes and imperfections to visibly improve their appearance. Finally we have Peony flower and the much loved Vinanza® antioxidants from grape seeds and kiwi which come together to work where they not only target redness and blemishes, but also have an aim of leaving your complexion looking radiant and glowy.

This cream is really light on the skin, almost serum like in texture and it absorbs so quickly there is little time to massage. What I love is that it doesn't feel tacky on the skin and because I am now wearing a facemask as soon as I step out of my front door to the minute I return, I've noticed the dryness that had appeared on my chin disappear whilst I was using this.

The final product of this trio is the Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Eye Cream and whilst I prefer the Kiwi Seed Eye Cream to this one, it is still delightful to use.

Designed to awaken tired eyes, this eye cream, as you might have guessed, also contains Manuka Honey for its moisturising, nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties. As with the cream above, this too is blended with the revolutionary antioxidant Vinanza® from grape seeds and kiwi skin but this time with the addition of the Persian Silk flower which delivers hydration to that fatigued under-eye tissue hence the cream being designed to awaken tired eyes.

As an insomniac, I do love an eye cream that distracts my Uncle Fester look, to being made to look half human at least. This cream is quite rich, so you need a really small amount, I found it much easier to use an applicator from another brand to apply it, rather than stick my finger into the pot as I always had a little too much. 

This collection is available to purchase via Antipodes right here in this packaging and LookFantastic also have this trio available as a bundle too right here*.
