I have a passion for botanical and natural ingredients (that is no secret), but what really fascinates me is how unique flora can be used in beauty products and well being. New Zealand is home to distinct plants and botanical ingredients. A lot of you will be familiar with Manuka Honey, it is native to New Zealand and used in culinary and skincare products. That is just one of the many native botanicals that Antipodes Skincare uses in their range. This New Zealand green beauty brand formulates their products with pure botanical, native extracts and waters that are beneficial and healing to your skin.
One of my favourite products in the range is the Aura Manuka Honey Mask. This mask is no average mask, it suits all skin types and provides immense hydration to your skin whilst retaining moisture without making your skin oily. Manuka honey is effective and suitable for acne/blemish prone skin due to the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps with scarring, this a multitasking mask and a must for your beauty regimen.
All good skincare routines need a toner and face oil and the Antipodes Skincare range definitely ticks both those categories. Face toners are important as they help remove excess makeup and help the absorption of oils into the skin. The Ananda Antioxidant-Rich Gentle Toner is made with Pure New Zealand Waiwera artesian water. This water is rich in minerals and is absorbed with ease into the skin leaving it feeling soothed and refreshed. It also contains Mamaku Black Fern, which aids in regenerating and fostering healthy cells. This native plant works to promote youthfulness and helps repair the skin. The soothing and antioxidant rich botanicals of raspberry seed, marshmallow and rose also deliver Omegas and anti-inflammatory nutrients to your skin. A beautiful, delicate yet high performing toner suited even for the most sensitive skin type.
After spritzing your skin with the Ananda Toner follow with the Avocado & Rosehip Divine Face Oil. This organic face oil is full of nutrient rich ingredients like avocado, macadamia, rosehip and jojoba. The oils have been carefully selected to help with scarring, sunspots and fine lines. Avocado oil aids in stimulating your skins collagen, macadamia and rosehip oil provide deep hydration without leaving your skin feeling greasy. A beautiful yet effective face oil that is suited for dry, combination and sensitive skin.
The Antipodes Skincare range is diverse and there is something to suit all skin types and concerns. The range is available from Adore Beauty website.
