You know just how much we love natural and organic skin care, and Antipodes is one of our favourite brands although not all products of theirs are organic we love their abundance of natural goodness and how they nourish and care for our skin on the outside. Just in time for summer they have released some great new products to keep your skin naturally soft and glowing as well as some great Limited Edition Gift Packs for Christmas.
The Joyful Hand and Body Cream combines the goodness of moisture-rich avocado oil and hibiscus flower to give a sweet scented, soft product. Enhanced by the enchanting scent of blackcurrant, the cream is packed with nutrients designed to nourish and refresh worn and tired skin. Avocado oil, the base of the product is packed with Omegas 3 and 9. Added chlorophyll and Vitamin E pack an antioxidant punch that promise to reduce the appearance of scars and age spots. This product smells so good – the black currant berry oil not only adds the right about of sugary sweetness but also brings the goodness of Vitamins C and E to purify the skin – we love and found it extremely nourishing and moisturising.
With the summer months approaching, it has never been more important to protect your skin against the sun. The Immortal SPF 15 Natural Sun Protection Face and Body Moisturiser is an effortless way to incorporate sun protection into your daily routine. The product contains naturally derived minerals to filter UVA and block UVB rays, as well as raspberry oil which enriches the skin with Omegas 3 and 6. We love that it is fragrance free, and all-natural, a great alternative to the chemical-rich synthetic sunscreens.
Antipodes have released two limited edition skin care kits that are perfect Christmas Gifts:
The Daily Anti-Aging Kit (RRP $109) contains the best products in Antipodes range. The Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream helps to neutralise free radical damage, while the Joyous Protein-Rich Night Replenish Serum uses the antioxidant power of goji berries to freshen your complexion. Finally, the kit includes the Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream, which harnesses avocado oil, carrot seed and manuka flower to reduce the appearance of tired eyes.
The Daily Moisturize Kit (RRP $59.00) is perfect for skin parched by this summer’s heat. Containing the Organic Avocado Oil and Rosehip Divine Face Oil, sweetly scented Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream and the classic Organic Lip Balm.
And a product that was released earlier this year, the Hosanna H20 Intense Hydrating Serum ($46) which promises to quench skin in desperate need of hydration. The best thing about this product is that it is oil-free, but still immediately plumps and smooths the skin. Over time it promises to improve the appearance of your skin, leaving it soft and youthful. This product has science on its side – and the use of natural grape seed extract will protect your skin from pollutants and other environmental aggressors. The product contains mineral-rich water from springs in New Zealand, so you can be sure that you are putting only the purest ingredients on your face.
We have been using the Hosanna Serum together with Antipode’s Apostle Skin Brightening Serum and have noticed very visible results in evening and brightening our skin tone as opposed to just using the Brightening Serum on its own (read about it here).
