Why night cream? This was a question I would usually ask (in my head). I didn’t understand why you would need a different face cream for day and night. After getting my hands on Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night cream, I quickly figured it out. Day creams that I tend to use are super lightweight and quickly absorbed. Night creams, I have found, are quite thick and heavy – something you don’t want to put under makeup. Night creams are there to give your skin a bunch of moisture and help fight off premature ageing.
I’ve always been a bit scared of heavy creams as some parts of my face can get pretty oily and I felt that these kinds of creams would lead to breakouts. The Antipodes night cream proved me wrong. Although it is heavy, it is absorbed quickly and leaves your skin feeling fresh and hydrated. Another thing I love about this brand is that every one of their products are all natural. This night cream uses New Zealand
Manuka Honey to moisturise and Avocado Oil to hydrate and increase collagen production. Last of all, it contains Vinanza Grape, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralise the effects of free radical damage that lead to premature ageing.
As you can tell, I’m a massive fan of this product! I was actually out on my lunch break the other day and headed into Priceline to browse for hand cream and I realised that the whole Antipodes range is sold there. For me, that’s a huge plus as a lot of great beauty brands are limited to online or mega stores like Sephora or Mecca – both of which are too far for me to walk to on my lunch break.
