Antipodes are a brand I've heard a lot about but never tried so when I was recently invited along to an event to find out more about their brand and some key products, I leapt at the chance.
Antipodes hail from New Zealand and pride themselves on making quality organic and naturally based skincare and body care.
They're sold in over 320 stores in New Zealand can be found in stores such as Whole Foods, Selfridges and Feel Unique in the UK.
Delight hand and body cream* is a new addition to the range and is a beautifully scented, extremely moisturising lotion. You can use it on both the hands and body, although my preferred use is definitely as a hand cream.
Despite its rich texture, it sinks in really quickly to hands, leaving them hydrated and supple for hours to come. I've found that this gives a similar moisturising effect to much heavier duty hand creams but it sinks in so quickly, there's no residue or waiting to do things while it absorbs.
It contains macadamia oil, which is packed full of omega 7 oil, helping to keep hands soft, making it perfect for the colder weather. It's scented with gardenia flower and even my boyfriend commented on how nice he thought it smelled!
My hands usually suffer quite badly in the cold weather, but since I've been keeping this tube in my handbag over the past few weeks, I've really noticed a difference. It is quite pricey at £24.99 for the 120ml tube, but having tried so many other hand creams that just don't deliver, I will definitely be re-purchasing this one once my tube eventually runs out.
I've got a couple more Antipodes products to test out, so keep your eyes peeled for those in the new year. I can see myself becoming a bit of a convert to the brand already!
Delight will be launching into UK stores very soon, but if you like the sound of Antipodes, why not check out their hibiscus scented Joyful Hand Cream in the meantime.
