Review: Antipodes Rejoice Facial Day Cream

Review Antipodes Rejoice Facial Day Cream
If you are not familiar with the brand, Antipodes is from New Zealand. It is certified organic, premium natural skincare, approved for Vegetarians with an impressive ingredients policy. Products are not tested on animals and do not contain -
  • genetically modified (GM) or genetically engineered (GE) ingredients 
  • synthetic fillers or silicon derived ingredients 
  • artificial colours or artificial fragrances 
  • sodium lauryl sulfates 
  • mineral oils 
  • petrochemicals 
  • animal ingredients (except honey and beeswax from living bees) 
  • parabens; ethyl-, methyl-, propyl-, butyl-. 
I was attracted to the Antipodes Rejoice day cream because it contains my favourite skincare ingredients – manuka, avocado, macadamia and jojoba. These ingredients are packed with nutrients along with moisturising and healing properties. As you can see this cream is packaged in a tube which is easy to squeeze. This is described as “light and non-oily”. I was very surprised by the consistency it is not what I would typically associate with a light cream, this is thicker than I was initially expecting and I do have to work it into my skin. That being said I do not find it heavy or greasy and my skin has no trouble absorbing it.

I have not suffered dry patches or irritation whilst using this product. By the way, I would happily use this overnight despite it being intended as a day cream. The fragrance is sweet from almond and vanilla. For some reason the scent has me imagining cinnamon buns. It is possible not everyone would enjoy the sugary fragrance but my tweet tooth thinks it is delicious.

Overall, I am happy to recommend Antipodes Rejoice Day Cream, it compares to other moisturisers I have reviewed on my blog. Antipodes is a premium brand and this is reflected in the price (£25.99 for 60ml), however it is comparable to brands like Pai, Elemental Herbology or Dr Hauschka.

  2. I have seen Antipodes almost everywhere, in pharmacies, dept stores etc. I went shopping with a Greek friend and she swore by it (is it Greek/NZ brand?) After reading your review that it is good for dry skin, I may have to get it when it goes on sale :)

    1. It is an NZ brand, my skin seems to really like it, you can't go wrong with avocado, manuka, macadamia as they are perfect to dry skin (well that's my opinion anyway lol) Is the price comparable to here?

    2. Well, almost. Give or take a pound. I saw The rosehip/avocado oil today it costs $33 AUD. This close to buying but I think I will stick with Trilogy that I am using right now. Next time :)

  4. I really like the sound of this. I am new to the organic skin care ranges...there is so much to learn!! Your blog is definitely helping me.

    I have combination skin - my nose and cheeks get quite dry but my forehead gets quite oily. I worry with creams that they will increase the oily appearance. Would you say that this product is suitable for oily skin?

    1. I have the opposite skin type than you so it is always harder to advise for oily skins. The product does market itself as oil free so it could work for you. Do you follow pamperedprince.blogspot.co.uk? Andy has an oily skin type and he blogs about organic/natural skincare, he might be able to advise you on a suitable product :)
