Gifted | Antipodes Manuka Honey Heroes in Skincare

29 September 2020

Looking back through my recent posts I've realized that it's been a hot minute since I last wrote a skincare post, which is crazy as skincare has become just as big of a love as make up for me through lock-down! A good skincare routine is better than any primer on the market and I'm always on the look out for skincare products that will give me a gorgeous glow, so when Antipodes got in touch and asked if I'd like to try their Manuka Honey Heroes Beehive box I jumped at the chance.

One of the things I love most about skincare is the science behind it - why certain ingredients are used and what benefits they give. One of the main ingredients in this set is Manuka Honey which can only be found and sourced in New Zealand. Manuka Honey is an antibacterial superfood that promotes a youthful complexion and a healthy glow. It also helps to clear blemishes while nourishing, which is exactly what my skin needed at the moment!

This trio also features the antioxidant extracts Vinanza Grape & Kiwi which is clinically proven to brighten skin, this is especially good for the eye cream, bye bye dark circles!

When I opened up the 'Beehive Box' I was impressed with how beautiful the packaging was while still being as eco-friendly as possible, with the products being able to slot in perfectly so there is less waste. After researching more about Antipodes as a brand, I found out that they pride themselves on being eco friendly, so all of the products are vegan friendly and the packaging is all eco friendly being made out of glass jars and aluminium tubes.

This set would make a lovely gift for someone. Inside I got the Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Day Cream, Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Eye Cream and the Aura Manuka Honey Mask. 

I really appreciated how universal this set was, there's something to suit every skin type. I personally have combination skin which can go more on the dry side, so I've been using the Light Day Cream daily and then the Aura mask when I want to give my skin a deeper nourishment. I also love that this range has been helping me tackle my mask-ne (ugh) as I've been having huge breakouts on my chin, so it's nice to use a moisturizer that you know won't clog up your pores or make the breakout worse.

Each product gives off a fresh but sweet scent from the honey combined with the vanilla pod and mandarin that is also mixed in. I've really enjoyed trying out Antipodes' Manuka Honey Heroes box and these products are now a staple in my skincare routine. I've noticed such a difference since I started using them, my skin has a healthy, fresh glow and my blemishes, and blemish scars, are disappearing!

Thank you so much to Antipodes for sending me these treats.

Have you ever tried any products from Antipodes' Manuka Honey range?
