Eating it, laughing at memes of it or smearing it on my face … I’ll take it in whatever form it comes, so when I was asked if I wanted to try the new avocado oil products from Antipodes*, I jumped at the chance.
On a serious note, avocado is so rich in goodness it’s got to be the tastiest superfruit; I first learned about it’s merits when I got into juicing and I’ve tried to incorporate it into my life as much as possible since.
I’ve tried a few of Antipode’s natural skincare products already so had an expectation when trying these, but on first impressions the Joyful hand & body cream* and Avocado Pear nourishing night cream* have overtaken everything else and become my favourite skincare products from the brand.
Firstly I need to address the scent, both are gorgeous but the hand cream especially smells amazing, I love how my hands smell after using it.
They both have a good consistency which I notice is sometimes lacking from natural skincare products. They’re firm and not greasy when applying and although they feel a little heavy going on, that soon absorbs and skin is left feeling instantly softer.
Over the next month I’ll be using these products daily and will share my findings and if I would recommend purchasing either. Skincare products especially require repeated use before any real benefits can be seen so each month I’m going to trial a handful of products and report back.
Both are available online from a number of sources and in-store at Selfridges.
Joyful hand & body cream – £23.50 // Joyful hand & body cream – £34.00
