My commitment to taking better care of my skin is continuing and I’ve slowly been incorporating new products into my routine. The latest product I’ve tried that has then made its way into my permanent routine is this Antipodes mini set.
I’m going to make a big call here and say that this is my favourite part of my skincare routine and it has given me the best results.
I absolutely adore New Zealand brand Antipodes – this love has been well-documented here and here – and had been wanting to try some more of its products so when I heard about this new set over on Lizzy’s blog I knew it would be perfect for my next Antipodes purchase!
This set contains two of Antipodes’ best-loved products – the Divine Face Oil and the Hydrating Day Cream – and is supposed to improve moisture in your skin. Best of all it’s only $19.90! Who could say no to two amazing products for only $20?!
As I’ve talked about many times I have extremely dry and dehydrated skin – I drink a lot of water yet it doesn’t seem to help. Don’t even get me started on the number of moisturisers and oils I’ve tried over the years to combat this dryness!
My skin had been looking and feeling a lot better overall thanks to finally having a proper skincare regime but this little duo just gave it that extra boost it needed.
I apply the oil both morning and night and the moisturiser just in the mornings. I’m not sure if you’re supposed to apply the oil before wearing makeup but I actually find it helps my makeup go on smoother and stay on longer.
One of my biggest issues with my skin is during the day it sucks the moisture out of my makeup so my makeup often disappears by 3pm. Having well-moisturised skin definitely delays this.
Both these products – especially the oil – have quite a strong smell. I’d almost reminds me of the smells of products that beauty therapists use when you’re having a facial or a massage. I could definitely see it being off-putting to some people but I absolutely love it and find it very calming.
This little wonder duo has made a huge difference in my skin – it feels softer and more moisturised, it looks soft and plump and my makeup stays on way longer!
