I’ve been in love with Antipodes products for a little while now, I love the packaging, I love the brand ethos and I’m loving all things natural for my skin at the minute, we recently had a Wholefoods Market open up in Cheltenham and it’s meant that I can delve into trying some more of their products, it’s not however amazingly good for my bank balance but never mind! I’ve wanted to try this product since before Christmas and a while back I treated myself to a little Antipodes haul – (link here) – and couldn’t resist picking this up. This smells amazing, actually, I don’t think I’ve smelt an Antipodes product yet that I didn’t want to completely smother myself in, it’s a very natural smell, I immediately smell Lavender when I open it up and a hint of a honey smell, if you’re not into your kind of organic, natural smells, then this one might not be for you but personally I love it. It’s got all sorts of goodness for your skin in this, to name a few, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Beeswax, Lavendar Oil, Vitamin E, and the list goes on, if you think of something good for your skin, it’s more than likely in this, the ingredients are 100% natural origin, with 76% being Organically cultivated.
The packaging of this is great, a sturdy little pot with a screw top lid that had the pretty green Antipodes design on the front which makes it great for travelling, I’ve spotted that some of the other cleansing balms can sometimes leak through the packaging but I can’t see that happening with this one to be honest. So, onto the product itself, it’s very much a butter like formula, I take a little scoop out, dot it across my face and as you massage it in, it melts it into the skin, initially it looks quite oily, I immediately worried that it was going to be too much but after washing this off with a warm flannel, it left my skin perfectly moisturised and soft. I just use this in the morning at the minute because it leaves my skin so soft and smooth that it’s a really good base for my makeup, I can’t stop touching my face but it’s also great for at night with the Lavender oil and all the other oils so it’s nice and relaxing before sleep.
I highly recommend this, it’s £26 for a 75g pot which isn’t the cheapest but you only need the tiniest amount of this so I can see this lasting a long time. If you haven’t tried anything from Antipodes yet, I would definitely recommend doing so!
Have you guys tried this?
