If you didn’t already know, I’m a HUGE Antipodes fan. I’ve took to this blog two years ago to rave about their Brightening products (which you can find here) and also their brightening eye cream, which had a mention in a YouTube video of mine too (again, post etc all here)
I’m always eager to try their new product launches, so this time around, it was Antipodes Worship Skin Defence Serum which landed on my beauty desk.
It retails at around £32, which is standard for a premium serum by the raw beauty brand. And that is one of the main things I love about them – the brand are heavily inspired by the raw beauty of New Zealand.
Antipodes offer a selection of premium products that harness ingredients grown in lush New Zealand forests to create a huge array of cleansers, treatments, masks and moisturisers, and deliver a pampering skincare experience in the comfort of your own home. You’ll find only quality ingredients packed into the products, which is potentially why they are so popular.
The Antipodes Worship Skin Defence Antioxidant Serum is designed to help your skin maintain its natural barrier function, defending against oxidative stress and the elements. It’ also works as a hydrating serum that will help diffuse signs of early ageing and leave your skin looking radiant.
I’ve been using it for around 10 days, applying it before my moisturiser just after cleansing. It sinks into the skin immediately, and leaves a light ‘gloss’ to the skin – kind of a healthy sheen. However, once the moisturiser is massaged on top, any sheen seems to all envelope into the skin, so you’re not left with a shiny face of anything.
It’s the scent of their serums that get me every time. They always have this very light, subtle note of botanicals, almost like a very faint touch of aromatherapy. This one is incredibly relaxing and soothing.
So far it’s doing an excellent job at moisturising those dry, rough patches of my skin, and leaving my complexion with a healthy glow.
That said, I have that confidence that my skin is being protected from the elements and any nasties in the air by using this daily.
If you know any ladies out there who are into raw beauty, and love those luxe products which give their skin a real healthy glow, as well as protection, this is a great gift this Christmas!
You can purchase Antipodes from various retailers such as Feel Unique, health stores, and QVC, as well as the brands own website here.
