If you didn’t already know, Antipodes is a premium natural and certified organic and vegan skincare brand that uses a combination of sustainably sourced ingredients from New Zealand and extensive scientific research to create a range of highly effective and generally heavenly skincare products. Antipodes is currently stocked at Beauty Bay, Naturisimo and Feel Unique.
In the past, I’ve purchased the Aura Manuka Honey Treatment Mask and Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream after watching a YouTube video from Em over at My Pale Skin over two years ago. I fell in love with the simplicity of the products. They felt stripped down and nourishing, Antipodes was one of the first natural skincare brands I ever tried. I was recently sent the Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator (£21/75ml) which has really reignited my love for the brand.
I like that it comes in a squeezy tube because it allows you to get every ounce of product out, I really wish their Vanilla Pod Cream came in this style of packaging too. Personally, I find that one of the most appealing qualities for the Antipode range is the fragrance of their products. The Reincarnation Exfoliator smells heavenly, which isn’t at all surprising when you look at the list of ingredients packed inside. The creamy exfoliator contains a blend of nourishing avocado oil, Jojoba beads, marigold bloom, cedarwood and sweet orange essential oils.
This exfoliator isn’t packed with abrasive and gritty particles, it’s a subtle but effective facial exfoliator that leaves your skin feeling softer, cleaner and calmer. Healing Calendula Oils repair and nurture the skin as Carrot Seed Extract clear and revitalise and Jojoba Beads gently lift away lifeless skin. It’s suitable for all skin types as it won’t irritate sensitive skin, stip dry skin of its natural oils or overload oily skin with anything that will cause further congestion. It keeps skin calm, balanced and clear.
The Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator retails for £21 for 75ml and is available to purchase here.
