I mentioned this product in my previous post and as promised here is my two cents about this jar of goodness!
All of my life I have steered clear of creams in general let alone night creams that tend to be nourishing. The reason was the fear of clogging my already easily clogged skin. But at 28 and finally gaining a bit of control over the skin issues I realised It was time to introduce a night cream for anti ageing benefits and the extras of course. Enter, antipodes night cream with avacado and pear. I bought this and the Devine face oil together but wanted to really give it a good 4 weeks or more to form an opinion.
I have honestly found myself getting excited to put this on every night without fail because I have seen the benefits unravel week after week. Do note that I have been using this in conjunction with a basic cleanser and a BHA toner and this follows as third and last step to my routine. In the morning it’s the oil that replaces this as my third and final step.
This is a thick cream and trust me you only need the tiniest amount depending how huge your face is-so a proportionate amount- to cover your whole face and neck. It smells like spa in a pot 😍. This puts back the right amount of moisture after my BHA (will be reviewing that soon) and I can safely say that my skin is healing faster. I have seen my skin tone even out drastically and those horrible scars around my chin are almost unnoticeable, bar one that I had picked and now it’s taking it’s sweet time. Most importantly, it has NOT BROKEN ME OUT!! In fact it does the opposite and calms the redness overnight for any monsters lurking to come out.
So if you’re not a picker then seriously this cream will definitely aid the healing process of those mean, life wrecking, confidence shattering spots. I’m sure it’s the avacado and the Manuka honey in it or maybe the fact that it adds moisture back to your skin for it to balance and focus on restoring itself is whats doing the job. Regardless, I’m sold and won’t be experimenting with night creams at all as I have found one that ticks all the boxes. I should add that simplifying my skin care, in may last year, has helped to begin with as now I use 3 things for day and night that have targeted benefits and are gentle enough to use everyday. This and the oil were introduced a little over 5 weeks ago and have replaced the products in my last step.
It is a bit pricey at £32.99 but it’s worth it considering it’s organic, has natural ingredients and actually delivers what it claims. As for the anti ageing properties I can’t vouch for its benefits yet but in the long run if this delays my crows feet or fine lines than I’ll know for sure. I bought mine from Lookfantastic and they usually have 15 if not 20 percent off . If you do give this a go then do let me know how you get on.
Till next post xx
Thank you, New Zealand, the land of kiwis, Frodo Baggins And *drum roll* Antipodes!! This dark bottle with an attractive green packaging has brought me back to life from the dark colony of blemishes I was stuck in. Yes, I know you know how it feels to be struck with bad skin in your late 20s because we all believed in the biblical statement that bad skin is just for teenagers!! Well, it is not! So your first truth bomb hits you late in life and you after trying everything frantically from turning vegan to throwing acids on your face, to rubbing food on your face have come to accept your fate of just never having good skin again. Think again, because this oil honestly has been my tinker bell! And no I haven’t seen a miracle overnight but over three weeks of using this my skin has thanked me. Seriously, it’s yelling at me right now for being an idiot and not jumping on this whole all organic and natural bandwagon!
I honestly have little or no spots these days even during that Time of the month when my skin explodes, it’s been very contained unless I binge on Oreos after a workout!! ( that is another story for another day) and the best part, the breakouts don’t leave a nasty dark mark anymore instead they’re lighter and are slowly fading away! That’s also due to my new pact of not picking them! But ya overall I’m really content with this oil it’s not sticky but weirdly hydrating without the oiliness *confused face*. FYI, I have combination skin, my chin area tends to be drier than the rest of my face and that only happened once I gave birth to my son last December.
If you’re looking for a light moisturizer with added benefits try this. We all have different skin chemistry but just give it a go and it might do you good like it did me. Honestly, it’s replaced my day cream completely. So give this Devine face oil a shot I mean Come on you’ve given all the craziness a try right!!!
Will be posting a review about their avocado and pear night cream. Spoiler alert: I love it!!!
I am wondering what to write as my first post. I know I should be giving you an overview of what this blog will be about but frankly, there is no particular theme to it. I want to be able to share my life with you guys, tell you guys of my experiences and all the things I have learned and somehow offer help.
I myself have learned the most from blogs and youtube channels, honestly, that’s been my go to information hub from my skin problems to advice on young toddlers! whenever I would purchase a new product I would find myself frantically googling reviews and more often than not I will always find one that would settle all my hellish worries of whether I made a mistake buying something or not. I mean we all want the assurance that we didn’t just waste our hard earned money on something bogus just because that beautiful blogger raved about it., right?

So this blog will consist of honest reviews and opinions, and the obviously perfect sense of levity. I will try and blog about everything be it a random experience on the subway, or the underground as they call it here in the UK.
With that my dearies I bid you farewell for now. Watch this space for an in-depth review of Antipodes next.
