Antipodes Divine Face Oil - Review

Antipodes as a brand is a relatively new discovery of mine and I've been trying out a couple of their products, so far I'm impressed! The Divine Face Oil is a blend of many lovely essential oils including avocado, rosehip and macadamia, making it a real treat for the skin. I have quite dry / dehydrated skin and find my face eats this stuff up! It has quite a herbal scent which I'm not over keen on, but as the product sinks in quite quickly so does the scent.

I've been using this as part of my evening skincare routine before night cream and have found it really helps with any dry patches on my face. It does boast some pretty big scientific claims: "Scientifically shown to stimulate optimal synthesis of type 1 collagen production in human fibroblast skin cells by up to 51%". Well I obviously cannot say if that has been the case for me, but i am really enjoying using it. I've seen a definite improvement in dry patches and feel my skin has been softer after using it, and so far it has not broken me out in the slightest. Apart from using Almond Oil on the odd occasion, face oils are a new concept for me and i honestly do not know why i haven't incorporated any into my routine before. I've been using the Divine Oil for nearly a month now and can definitely see a repurchase in the future.

Priced at £18.99 it doesn't break the bank and you need such a small amount of product i can see this lasting me a good 6 months of use every other day. I'm not sure how this would work with more oilier skins, but for drier types i wholeheartedly recommend this little beauty.

I picked mine up from Feel Unique here.

Have you tried any Antipodes products? 
Let me know your favourites!




  1. I have a night cream by them and it's quite nice, it feels a bit heavy/greasy though but once it sinks in... it's good! It has the weirdest smell though!
