I’ve been ill for seemingly the past 4324234 years with a really persistent cold. I’m tired and it shows, my skin and hair look dull.
At times like these I try to incorporate more raw organic food into my diet, like green juices and lots of fruit and veg. In pretty perfect timing, I was sent Antipodes new Worship serum, a certified organic (and Vegetarian Society approved) serum which combats signs of early ageing and skin damage from the elements.

Worship comes in a glass bottle and with a pipette applicator. There are no details about how much to apply, but I found half a pipette was plenty and it’s intended to be applied daily.
The smell is quite potent, like a fruit juice or tea. No doubt due to it’s ingredients which are jam packed with fruits and berries. The water based liquid has a thick consistency but is easily absorbed into the skin. Although there is a slight sticky feeling just after application. The serum has a cooling, tingling feeling on the skin so it’s great to apply first thing in the morning after cleansing and before moisturising.
On the subject of serums, I saw great results from the Bodyshop seaweed night treatment. Which hydrates the skin and balances excess oil. I tend to only use serums reactively, but plan to incorporate them into my daily skincare routine from now on.
For a quick bit of ‘make myself feel better’ pampering, I applied a thin layer of Antipodes manuka honey face mask* (which smells gorgeous!) and left for 15 minutes before gently washing off. After that I applied Worship serum and moisturised with Bodyshop aloe vera soothing moisture lotion (sadly not organic or paraben free, but a favourite of mine), before heading to the bath for a long soak using a Guardian Of The Forest bath bomb from Lush, armed with a cold green juice.
If you’re interested in trying out Antipodes Worship serum*, it’s available through their website: antipodesnature.com. Or feelunique.com and also available in-store at Selfridges.
When it comes to skincare, I’m going to make a conscious effort to use more organic and natural products.
