Antipodes Joyous Night Replenish Serum and Saviour Skin Balm review



Hi everyone!
Today I am sharing a review of two miracle products from Antipodes New Zealand. I already reviewed some of their skin care and I must admit - I fell in love with the brand. I was expecting the serum and skin balm to be quite nice, after reading many good reviews, but I actually cannot believe how amazing they are! The effects are visible right away and I am totally blown away!


 Joyous Protein-Rich Night Replenish Serum* 30ml £36.99 link

'Address signs of ageing with this intensive, oil-based, silky night serum that helps restore collagen overnight to repair ultra-dry and sun-damaged skin. Himalayan goji delivers up to 19 amino acids to replenish protein at a cellular level. The serum brings a dewy glow to your skin with red raspberry seed oil blending with New Zealand blackcurrant - a rich source of essential fats like gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Hibiscus flower and kiwi oil freshen your complexion, while berry fragrance imparts pure joy.'

I have never felt anything as smooth as this serum. It is so silky!!! Every time I massage it into my face I can't believe how amazing it feels on the skin. The application is VERY pleasant and I always look forward to this part of my night time routine. Just imagine massaging the softest and silkiest oil into your face... Amazing!

It doesn't sink into the skin right away, like water based serums and it is perfect for facial massage. It takes a couple of minutes to be fully absorbed. I use 2-3 tiny drops each time and the applicator makes it really easy to get the desired amount. The results? Every day I wake up to softer and plumper looking skin. The effects are visible from day one and I can't stop talking about this product and how it transformed my skin. No exaggeration- my skin feels as soft as my little boy's face! 


  ' Nature's richest oils blend with the power-packed antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial healing properties of Australian tea tree and New Zealand totara. Cell and skin repair are dramatically optimised by antioxidant-rich echinacea and Vinanza Grape from grape seeds in this pure and natural cure-all that brings rescue daily. Use Antipodes Saviour Skin Balm to help the whole family with dry and cracked skin, grazes and bruises, chapped lips, sore muscles, sunburn, natural baby care, protection after shaving, conditioning cuticles, and in-flight hydration. Scientifically shown to stimulate synthesis of Type II collagen in human skin cells by more than 95%.'

The Saviour Skin Balm is definitely worth investing in.  It really is a skin saviour and can be used for many purposes! I know that the price tag can put you off, but you get 75g of product (10 times more than a standard size lip balm) so you are actually saving money, haha :)

The balm comes in a sturdy metal tin with a pretty design on the front. The lid is really tight, so I always make sure my hands are completely dry before I try to open it :) It can take a few attempts. I use it on my cuticles, elbows, knees, feet, lips and... kitchen burns (I am sooo accident prone).  A little goes a long way and it works wonders on dry/flaky/damaged skin.

I also used it on my toddler, he gets dry patches on his arms and chest and I massage the balm into the affected area to soften the skin. I noticed a big improvement since I started using the Saviour Skin Balm on his skin. It became a part of my baby boys bedtime routine and my beauty regime. It isn't overly scented, it has a nice, natural herbal fragrance.

I absolutely love the Saviour Skin Balm and it is perfect for the full family! I find myself reaching for it every day and it always soothes my skin, leaving it soft and nourished. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and there is still 80-90% of the product left.
