Antipodes Nourishing Night Cream

I suffer quite badly with random dry patches on my face so when I was offered the chance to try a nourishing night cream I grabbed it. According to the box the Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream* uses manuka honey to draw moisture to your skin, healing calendula, vinanza grape as an antioxidant and Marlborough sauvignon blanc grape-seed extract to neutralise free radical damage. I have to admit I had no idea what some of these were until I looked them up.

This night cream is a thick cream that applies well and definitely nourished my skin and eliminated all dry patches by the morning ready for my makeup. It comes in a sturdy glass pot with a twist lid that is small enough for my crappy hands to open most of the time. My only issue with it is it made my skin so oily when I applied it. It wasn't too bad by morning but it still felt a tad greasy

The box says that it is suited to most skin types including ultra-dry. I would however say that if you suffer from particularly oily skin this may not be the one for you. But it would probably be pretty good for ultra dry skin because it really does put the moisture back into the skin. It sorted out my dry patches almost instantly

Antipodes night cream also has quite a strong smell. I'm not really sure how to describe it other than it smells a bit medicinal. It's not unpleasant but if you have sensitivities to scent this might not be the cream for you.

At £33.99 I'm not sure I'd repurchase for 2 reasons
1. It made my skin too oily
2. I'm poor and there are so many excellent highstreet skin care brands I'm not sure I could justify spending a weeks food shop on night cream.

However, If you can get past going to bed with a super shiny face that smells a bit odd then it really does nourish and moisturise your skin leaving it super soft the next day.
