Hi everyone! So I am super excited, as this is my first ever beauty product review (woop woop)! Luckily, we’re starting with a good one too.
I am happy to introduce to you the Joyous Night Replenish Serum by Antipodes. I’ve heard some good things about the New Zealand natural beauty brand before- and oh boy, I wasn’t disappointed. As soon as I unscrewed the cap, the deep delicious smell of berries hit me. It wonderfully slapped me right across the face!
Instantly, I was in love. I have never felt anything as smooth and silky as this serum (it really is joyous ho-ho). Okay, enough with the jokes. Let’s get serious- it’s super silky, and every night when I massage it into my face I can’t believe how good it feels. I have used the product every single night, without fail, for exactly three weeks- it’s officially become part of my daily night routine.
I suffer from dry, sensitive skin- which is prone to those horrible red blotches. This product has been a dream. I probably use more drops than someone with combination/oily skin would, I use exactly five drops for my face and neck- but it seems most people use 2-3 drops a night. So just use what feels right to you.
Anyway, the application is super easy to use and prevents any oil wastage- which is a big bonus. This serum is so moisturising, I haven’t been using a night moisturiser (sacrilege!). I rub the 5 drops all over my face, and sleep with it on- I wake up in the morning with beautifully nourished, moisturised soft skin. I no longer wake up with red blotches anymore either, its done wonders for my complexion- I finally have clear skin!
The serum doesn’t sink into the skin right away like standard water based serums, which is one of the reasons I love it. I can honestly feel it working its wonders on my face, instead of my skin soaking it up in seconds.
I now wake up every morning with softer, plumper and clearer skin than I ever have before. The effects are visible from the very first use – and no exaggeration, it’s honestly transformed my skin.
I would recommend this product to everyone, especially if you suffer from dry, dull, sensitive skin like me! The other wow factor is how long it’s lasted- even though I have been using it for 3 weeks straight, the bottle is practically full- it looks like I haven’t touched a drop!
So, if you’re worrying about the £36.99 price tag- it’s SO worth it. One 30ml bottle will last you for months at a time.
I will be repurchasing before this bottle has even run out (you know- just in case). It’s officially part of my daily routine- for good!
