So many brands.
So many products.
It’s over-whelming find beautiful skincare that actually works.

So beauties, I have done the work for you and have found a great skincare range! Organic natural beauty is very important to me. Finding products that I only truly love, are natural and actually work has become a bit of a mission of mine. It’s become a bit obsessive to the point that I check for parabens, sulphate and other nasties in all my beauty, food and cleaning products!

Around Christmas time I was gifted, Antipodes Superfood serum which I gave to my Mumma, who believed it to be and I quote “the best serum she has ever used”! Since that comment, I decided to go out and try their basic skin care range!

Gentle Cream Cleanser
I am extremely picky with my cleansers. I use 3 different ones on a weekly basis. I have now added the Antipodes Cream Cleanser, as its just that; creamy and gentle and works well with my sensitive skin.  This product is FILLED with gorgeous ingredients, making it rich in antioxidant and a naturally soothing cleanser that works so well it gives you a virtual facelift in an instant.

This blissfully soothing formulation features anti-inflammatory super-antioxidant Vinanza Oxifend®, naturally extracted from pinot noir grapes sustainably cultivated on award-winning Marlborough vineyards. Nutrient-rich avocado oil and marigold bloom effectively removes makeup leaving the skin cleansed, fresh and soft.

“A dermatologically approved organic cleanser that is a true gift for sensitive skin conditions.”

A perfect wake-up call, this product is definitely appropriately named.
The ‘Reincarnation’, is a floral delight that instantly makes me feel fresh and revived.
Though it’s an extremely gentle exfoliator with tiny beads, I really notice the difference when I use it, in that my skin is left polished, softer and more receptive to oils/creams afterwards. The texture is so refined despite clay being the second ingredient. The healing marigold bloom oil works to nurture and repair while carrot seed extract helps clear and revitalise your skin’s surface. Exotic essential oils of cedarwood and sweet orange calm and balance your skin’s appearance. Suited to most skin conditions.

“Avocado oil and jojoba beads marry to lift away lifeless skin, leaving a fresh complexion that feels reborn.”

Day Moisturiser
I usually prefer to use serums and oils as day moisturisers but this one is quite light and nourishing. This gorgeous day cream contains rosehip oil to nourish and hydrate, grape seed to energise, Manuka Honey as an anti-bacterial to help reduce impurities and skin concerns, and avocado oil helps to create a healthy plumped visage to help decrease fine lines.
A gentle, light and non-oily facial day cream to enhance your skin’s natural hydration, with joyful fragrances of sweet almond and vanilla pod to enliven your senses this product really is a delight.

Definitely my favourite product of the range, this Superfood Serum contains chia and kiwi seed to help feed your skin and restore youthful radiance. I’m a lover of Jojoba Oil so to turn me this product had to be really exceptional. This oil blend is abundant in essential fatty acids that promote skin health and help balance our skins natural sebum. I get so excited to use this product as it, the gently scented liquid gold has hints of jasmine bloom and ylang-ylang that are naturally calming to our senses. If you only get one product, invest in this- you won’t be disappointed!

 ‘Bestow your skin with nature’s fresh energy’.
