This natural beauty brand from New Zealand has a beautiful range of effective skincare products that I can't get enough of. Packed with natural antioxidant rich ingredients and focused around the best of what their homeland has to offer, Antipodes has found a way to harness green beauty, make it appealing and affordable and leave consumers coming back for more. In fact, most people I know from the blogging community love something or another from them and once you've tried their products, it's easy to see why.

Although I haven't tried as many products from them as I'd like, the few I have tried I've loved (except for one dud that I think in all fairness was expired but we won't talk about that here). Here are my top 3 products that I would recommend to anyone and everyone, regardless of skin type that I love using and will continue to use for a long time to come.

Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask | £24.99

This is one my favourite masks of all the masks I've tried. It has a wonderful luscious creamy texture, a beautiful comforting scent and feels so hydrating and soothing on the skin. Manuka honey is great for healing skin and keeping it clear so this is a great treatment for those that are blemish-prone looking to keep the breakouts at bay. I often use this as a spot treatment and find it helps calm any redness and reduces the inflammation overnight. This is such a lovely product to use as an overnight mask or as a weekly treat to end a masking session. I already have a back-up because this is a product I want to have in my stash at all times.

Antipodes Divine Face Oil Certified Organic Avocado & Rosehip | £21.99

Once you get past the earthy scent, which is very strong and a little jarring to begin with, you’re left to appreciate the rich, lusciousness of this oil. As the name would suggest it contains avocado and rosehip oil along with other fatty acids and vitamins. It is very rich and nourishing, and is a great treatment product to help with dehydration or dryness, dark spots or lack-lustre skin. I like to apply this at night because it’s a little too rich for daytime use though I do reach for this when my skin is especially dry or when I’m feeling poorly as it ensures my skin stays plump and smooth. I've had my bottle for a quite some time now and am actually coming to an end of it. I will happily repurchase this in the future when I've used up a few more oils from my collection.

Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Eye Cream | £36

There’s something sumptuous about patting on eye cream using only your ring fingers just as we remember all our glam elder-ladies doing way back when. This beautiful cream contains avocado oil and Manuka honey and helps keep the under eye area wonderfully moisturised. I only tend to use this at night as I have lighter textured eye creams that I prefer during the day. Recently I’ve started using it after applying an eye serum and I find this gives that extra seal of hydration to see my under eyes through till the morning. It absorbs into the skin quickly and has a delicate, almost undetectable scent. This claims to help with under eye darkness but I personally haven’t seen any results to this effect, and I’ve used this daily since I purchased it many many months ago. It's not a deal breaker for me though as I have little expectation to this effect from an eye cream alone.

I also love their Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream | £27.99 just as much as this as I see very little difference in their results (so that’s a cheeky fourth must-try product for you there). If there’s one thing about Antipodes eye creams you should know is that these little pots will last you a very long time, way past the shelf-life stated on the packaging but as long as you’re storing it in a cool place, it will be fine until it’s all used up. 

Have you tried any products by Antipodes? What would you recommend? Are any of these ones that you love too or ones that you wish to try? I'd love to know...
