My Favourite Moisturiser: Antipodes Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream.

Hi Guys.

So I thought I would share with you my favourite moisturiser right now. It is called Antipodes Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream. Antipodes is a New Zealand brand which uses 100% organic ingredients. Initially I was hesitant about using this as I have oily skin and was worried the nutrient rich ingredients would cause me to break out but I had nothing to worry about! It did not cause me to break out at all and if anything the blemishes on my skin cleared up more and my skin looked overall healthier. My fine lines were decreased and everything was more plumped and supple. The packaging is really nice and I love the black writing against the cream background. You definitely feel like you are treating yourself when you use it. The ingredients include avocado oil, manuka bloom and sweet almond and it smells almost good enough to eat. I would recommend this to anyone with oily/ sensitive skin and even people with dry skin though there are more richer moisturisers in their range for people with dry skin. This costs $49 AU and I would definitely recommend it to anyone with oily, sensitive skin who is worried about small, fine lines.
