I came across the Antipodes range when purchasing some goods from Natures Healthbox.
I was very pleased to have come across this, as I have been searching for a good face cream that actually works for some time now.
I suffer with dry skin on my face, and sometimes have annoying patches that just won’t budge. Whilst on the Natures Healthbox website, I came across Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream and noticed that this cream suits most skin conditions including extra dry skin, so thought I would give it a go.
The first thing I noticed about this product when I opened it was the beautiful scent of relaxing Jasmine, Sandalwood and Floral Ylang Ylang and the smooth consistency of the cream. I applied the cream to my face before bed and found this not to be greasy (unlike other brands) and suited my skin well. I noticed a difference straight away as when I woke next morning my face did not feel dry, but super soft and I actually had a slight glow. Before using Antipodes I had a few rough patches of skin on my chin which have now disappeared since using this natural cream.
After such a great experience using this cream, I decided to do a bit of research and find out more about Antipodesand the ingredients used:
Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream has been scientifically shown to stimulate optimal synthesis of type 1 collagen production in human cells by up to 92%. The ingredients such as calendula oil is known to help repair and heal skin cells, Manuka Honey moisturise and cleanse the skin, while the rich antioxidant Vinanza Grape neutralises free radicals. The Avocado feeds the skin with Vitamins A, B1, B2 and D, as well as Omegas 3 and 9, leaving the skin feeling restored, refreshed, and ultimately soft.
Avocados are rich with Vitamin A which helps to remove dead skin cells from your body. They also contain an amino acid known as glutamine, which cleans and protects your skin from environmental damage. Avocado helps to stimulate the growth of new skin cells, and improves the blood circulation in the skin. The antioxidants in avocados help to get rid of toxins that promote premature aging and wrinkling. A lot of the toxins on your facial skin are the residue of make-up or other cosmetics.
I have continued to use this night cream daily and will consider trying some of the other Antipodes products. I would highly recommend anyone with dry or extra dry skin to consider using this as you won’t be disappointed!
Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream, truly is an extraordinary natural and organic product which does what it says and is great value for money!
