These must be my favourite reviews - Skincare! We have quite a good range of skincare brands here at Evolution Organics such as Alitura, Dr Bronner's, Alba, Dr Mercola, Jason and finally Antipodes. Most of us use Antipodes and this is one of their newer product which I was very excited about so here goes my review and their Glow Ritual!
First off, I love skincare BUT have a very limited amount of storage in our bathroom. On my teeny, tiny shelf I have a cleanser, micellar water, a derma roller, eye cream, moisturiser, and 3 serums. That's it. I know it's unfair, I am working on it.
Why we love Antipodes?
Antipodes is a Scientific Green Beauty company from New Zealand that uses pollution-free, results-driven native New Zealand ingredients in its award-winning plant-powered vegan beauty and certified organic premium skincare range. See more on Antipodes HERE.
Antipodes is committed to repurposing, reusing and recycling, including using recyclable boxes made from 100% biodegradable cardboard derived from sustainable forests as well as glass bottles, aluminium tubes and printing with 100% eco ink from vegetables.
Now about this Vitamin C serum...
Using a Vitamin C rich serum/cream is something that I've heard about a lot. I knew the benefits of taking Vitamin C internally (I use Altrient Liposomal Vitamin C daily) but what about the benefits that you might see by using it ON your skin? Using Vitamin C daily can help brighten the complexion, protect your skin and increase its natural collagen production... for that alone it was worth a try.
But there's more...
Antipodes Glow Ritual Vitamin C Serum contains a retinol alternative and we know the benefits of retinol for smoother and firmer looking skin. Not only that but there hyaluronic acid to increase moisture.
When you first open the bottle, it comes with a dropper and the serum is gold. It's beautiful and it smells great too. I used it every morning after cleansing. I patted a dropper full (3/4 full to be perfectly honest) on my face and neck, let it dry and then continued with my usual moisturiser and SPF.
I have used it religiously for over 1 month and (ok this is going to sound like an ad but it's clearly not) my skin does feel smoother, makeup goes on better and lasts longer (this could be due to a more even texture and locked in moisture).
Also, I cycle to work and get very cold and often get a dry patch on my chin and in between my eyebrow and I completely forgot about them because I haven't had them to tackle with yet - and it's been cold (on some morning, freezing!).
The bottle is made from glass and will last you about 2 months used once daily. Worth every penny.
