As I am sure you are aware if you are a regular reader I am a huge fan of the Pai Skincare range, particularly the rose-hip oil. All other skincare I try out is compared to this and the vast majority fall short. Antipodes is the only brand I have found that can rival Pai or even begin to compare.
I was fortunate enough to try out several products from the Antipodes range; the grace gentle cream cleanser, joyous night oil, avocado pear nourishing night cream, immortal SPF 15 and Aurora manuka honey mask. The concept behind Antipodes is something I really look for in skincare; combining the best of science and nature to create skincare that is kind to your skin but also highly effective. I was excited to try the range out and I wasn’t disappointed.
Joyous Protein Rich Night Oil
Probably my favourite product in the range, the only oil to rival Pai- it is an incredible oil. I have never woken up with such plump, hydrated, healthy looking skin. It is scientifically shown to stimulate elastin production in human fibroblast skin cells by up to 60.5% – might be a little technical but means it’s going to do amazing things for your complexion!
Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser
Incredibly gentle yet extremely effective at cleansing your skin of make and impurities. I love using this as a night time double cleanse; once to remove makeup and once to deeply cleanse the skin. The rich avocado oil and marigold bloom gently yet effectively cleanse, freshen and soften leaving your skin glowing.
Avocado Nourishing Night Cream
This cream is wonderfully rich-perhaps a little too rich for me for everyday use , although when my skin feels a little dry and dehydrated this is the product to reach for to layer on the Joyous Oil. This facial night cream also features calendula oil from marigold petals, highly regarded throughout history for its healing and repairing properties. Active manuka honey soothes and moistens your skin, while potent antioxidant Vinanza Grape helps neutralise free radical damage.
Immortal Moisturiser SPF 15
A lovely light cream with SPF perfect for use on both the face and body. I trend to apply to the upper part of my body; face shoulders and chest and then opt for a tanning oil elsewhere. Non clogging, light weight and sinks in quickly.
Aurora Manuka Honey Mask
Probably my second favourite product in the collection. A beautiful replenishing mask that soothes and detoxifies the skin. I apply a generous layer of the mask and leave on for 15mins before removing with a hot cloth at least twice a week.
So there you have it! I have finally found a brand worthy of rivalling my all time favourite ‘Pai’. A must try brand and worthwhile investment in your skin.
