Antipodes Skincare Empties Review

Antipodes Skincare Review

In this post I would like to share my thoughts on some of the products I use from amazing natural skin care brand called Antipodes. These time it’s a review of two products, one of them I’ve already mentioned on my blog and both are already empty unfortunately.

Just a few words about Antipodes Skincare first. In short, I love it, it’s not cheap but it’s really good. What I like the most about this brand is that they have very good selection of cleansers and oils/serums for different skin types and skin concerns. And for me these are the most important products in beauty routine that HAVE to be tailored to your skin type. All their oils/serums are certified organic as well as some other products. Antipodes Skincare comes from New Zealand and the brand uses unique grape and kiwi fruit extracts called Vinanza Grape and Vinanze Kiwi extracts in its formulas. These extracts are packed with anti-oxidants and help to address a number of skin concerns.

First up is Antipodes Apostle Skin Brightening & Tone Correction Serum (£37.80). It’s certified organic serum , with quite interesting texture and it smells like grapes (very nicely).

It’s quite expensive but it’s lasted me for almost 5 moths as you need only a tiny amount and I used it almost every day at least once per day. It’s suitable for sensitive and blemish-prone skin and I can surely say that it hasn’t made my skin break out at all. I always use tone correcting and whitening products as my face gets tanned very quickly and my neck doesn’t, plus it doesn’t tan evenly too with chin and skin around lips getting much darker. In addition I have plenty of dark and red spots after blemishes. Antipodes Apostle serum does help with all these issues. It’s especially good for removing post blemish spots and I think it even helps to heal blemishes much faster. My cheeks used to look quite red from old acne scars and now they look much better and lighter, and it removes new spots even faster. As I’ve already used all my Apostle Serum, I will make a couple of months break as I think it’s necessary not to allow your skin to get used to treatments, and then I will purchase this serum again.

Second product is Antipodes Resurrect Clarifying Toner (£17.10). Again, it’s certified organic. I love mist toners in general and this one in particular, I’ve finished my second bottle and I am planning to buy it again. It’s perfect for oilier skin types as it really balances skin and helps to set serum and moisturiser. I love its herbal scent too. Oh, and it’s really soothing and refreshing too. It’s enriched with sage and chamomile extracts that I just love and I think you cannot ask for more from a toner!

    Great reviews! Good to see you’ve finished them both up too 😀 I haven’t tried any skincare from Antipodes but I’d like to. I am using their mineral foundation at the minute & loving it 🙂

      Thanks, I actually don’t often finish my face products, but these are great! I have a couple of other Antipodes products I am still trying and they are nice too! Their foundation is on my wish list 🙂

    Hi,

    Great website!

    Would you recommend the Antipodes Apostle Skin Brightening & Tone Correction Serum instead of the Indie Lee squalene and Antipodes worship serum? Which one/two are the most effective? if you do use two serums then do you apply them one after the other?

    You mentioned that you sometimes take a break form a serum for a few months so what do you use in those months? Do the breakouts come again?

      Hi, Pooja! Thank you, I am glad you like it! I think Antipodes Apostle and Worship serums are quite similar, so they can easily replace each other. They are both quite effective, Apostle is more for tone-correction while Worship is great to tackle the first signs of aging. They are both suitable for acne-prone skin. Indie Lee Squalane Oil is very different product, it’s pure oil and the way more moisturising than Antipodes serums, so it can be used in addition to serums, for example you can use a serum in the evening and oil in the morning and vice versa.

      If I have a break from Antipodes serum, then I will use a serum from another brand. At the moment I am loving Evolve Organic Serum Hyaluronic Serum. To be honest, I haven’t had any breakouts for quite a while, but both Antipodes and Evolve serums as well as Indie Lee oil are quite helpful in healing blemishes! I hope it helps xx
