Introducing my latest skincare crush: The Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask*. If you’ve been reading blogs of the beauty kind for a while then chances are you’ll have seen this so many times before. For that reason I’ll keep it sweet – I just need to publicly give this my seal of approval as I normally fail massively at doing a spotlight review on a lot of my favourites.
A few months back I thought I had everything covered in the mask department. I had my clay masks, my exfoliating masks and my hydrating masks. But it still felt like I was missing something. That’s where Antipodes has filled the gap. It’s described on their website as “an intensely moisturising, cleansing and anti-oxidising treatment” and I personally think that sums it up perfectly. The effects are a more subtle version of what I’d expect to see if I used a trio of masks – just slightly more subtle. This is great as I tend to have a little redness hanging around if I use masks in conjunction with each other, but this leaves my skin looking clear, bright and hydrated, making it a great mask for both morning and evening.
Oh, and it smells AMAZING, like a honey/vanilla combo. And yes, it does make me want to leave it on for longer than the recommended 15 minutes…
