 My views and opinions about Antipodes Anti-ageing minis

Before I tell you about my opinions, you need to know that I have a normal to combination skin. The combination bit are either dry or oily depending on the season. Plus, I fall in the 30+ age category.

  • I am not a big fan of night time routines as a lot of products tend to get greasy and I like my face to feel light when I go to bed. But surprisingly these are easy to apply and get absorbed so quickly!
  • My skin feels great when I wake up in the morning.
  • Not greasy. Can you see me doing the happy dance!
  • The serum is so smooth and silky and it takes just a few minutes for all of it to be absorbed into the skin.
  • The night cream has a richer formula, thick and creamy.
  • I am trying this during winters now and the cream fabulously takes care of the dry patches.
  • I apply these and can peacefully go to sleep knowing that there are no harmful chemicals in it. I have always been a big fan of organic products, as you know.
  • I have been waking up to much more softer skin. Baby soft. Imagine, for us 30+ women, it is a great boon to wake up with baby soft skin.
  • I love how my face feels in the morning.
