Among the products I use to pamper my face a brand that always gives me great satisfaction is Antipodes, a New Zealand certified organic brand.
In this post I will share with you some of my favorite products, in case you’re looking for some good, organic and very effective ( yet a bit pricey) face products.
Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream
The day cream I’m currently using is Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream. This light but intensive hydrating cream is made of 100% pure avocado oil, macadamia nut, manuka honey and kawakawa.
This day cream is perfect for winter time as it’s very rich and keeps my skin supple and protected all day long. Also it gives my skin immediate radiance and, nonetheless, it lift up my mood with the fresh notes of vanilla and citrus.
What I like the most is that this cream includes precious ingredients as manuka honey, used for centuries by indigenous Maori women to soothe and nourish skin, and an antioxidant-rich extract from the leaf of the native New Zealand plant kawakawa.
I don’t recommend this cream for oily skin or during summer as it’s very rich and it could become greasy under foundation.
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask
Another well loved Antipodes product has been for me the Aura Manuka Honey mask, a deeply moisturising, cleansing and anti-oxidising treatment.
Again it includes the precious manuka honey, which powerfully draws moisture to the skin to hydrate it intensely. I use thick layers of this mask over my face twice a week for 15 minutes and then I rinse with warm water.
The result is the softest skin with an healthy glow that remains for hours.
Sadly I’ve finished my tube but I will surely purchase it again.
Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream
This cream, made of pure avocado oil, manuka and carrot seed, is by far the best eye cream I have ever used. I just love it and I will never change it. Never.
This cream is very rich in vitamin C from the seed of the New Zealand kiwi and this works superbly to repair damaged tissue.
You can say goodbye to dry under eye and consequent bad working concealer. This eye cream really works and makes your under eye moisturized and soft.
I like to use it at night, using clean fingertips to pat on gently and in the morning I wake up with the softest skin.
Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream
This product completes the range of Antipodes stuff I’m trying.
This night cream is made of pure avocado oil, manuka honey, marigold flower and sandalwood and it claims to ‘resurrect your skin with the deeply nourishing properties of pure 100% avocado pear oil, containing antioxidants and packed with Vitamins E, A, B1, B2, C and D for superior restorative qualities’.
And again, I love it.
This cream is very rich and It’s ok to me as I like to use rich cream at night. Besides lots of other precious ingredients it also features calendula, which is also very good for my sensitive skin.
My skin loves this whole range made of manuka honey and avocado oil and especially their healing and repairing properties. I never broke out after using this range and for sure I will buy all this stuff again.
