Divine Face Oil by Antipodes

After several bottles of the amazing Trilogy Rosehip oil, I decided to branch out a bit and try something new. I finally settled on several products from New Zealand brand Antipodes, including the Divine Face Oil. How does it compare to my tried and tested Trilogy favorite?

The Divine Face Oil combines Avocado and Rosehip oil with sweet orange rind and jasmine petal. The antioxidants and nutrients in the avocado and rosehip oil help reduce fine lines and sun spots and the avocado oil even has a very mild natural sun protection. It comes in a 30 ml glass vial with pipette that retails for approximatelyΒ Β£18.99/€25.

This product has a lovely smell: floral with a hint of earthiness. Massaging this rich yellow oil onto your face at night is a real treat. It did take me a little while to get used to the smell – Trilogy also smells lovely but the fragrance is much less apparent – but this has really become a staple in my night time routine.Organic Divine Face Oil by Antipodes with rosehip and avocado

A couple of weeks ago, I developed a weird little rash on my face after testing some products. I decided to go back to basics and used solely organic products – mainly Antipodes and Pai – on my face for several weeks. The rash subsided and my skin has never looked better!

A couple of drops of this oil underneath your night cream really makes a lot of difference for anyone suffering from dry or dehydrated skin. Take a bit of time to properly massage this into your skin and you will see even more benefits. As you only need very little. this bottle will last quite a while.

So, how does it compare to the Trilogy rosehip oil? I would say they are very similar products with similar results, but the main difference is the smell. This has a lovely but very present fragrance, some people will prefer this while others will love Trilogy just a little more because it is less present. Take your pick, you cannot go wrong with either facial oil.

    Never used a facial oil before. Love the fact that it is with advocado. Isn’t it a bit ‘greasy’?

      Oh yes, the avocado really makes this even more luxurious. It is a tiny bit greasy when you first apply, but this disappears quickly if you massage it into your skin. The trick is also not to apply too much: just a couple of drops πŸ˜€

    Klinkt fijn, maar ik heb echt een haat-liefde verhouding met producten die olie als basis hebben

      Ik vond het eerst ook niks, maar ben er echt aan gewend geraakt. Wat vind je er niet prettig aan?

    oils as an overnight treatment is the thing my lovely! I got do used to using them that now I can’t live without! I’m currently testing the Sunday Riley Luna which is lovely in a bottle and combined with my other Sunday Riley oil, Artemis is like all your fairies came and worked their magic on your face! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

      Same here: I was a little hesitant at first but now I really feel like i am missing something if i don’t use it.
      Faeries huh…I like Faeries! The Sunday Riley looks so good, but it is a little pricey…maybe as a birthday treat in a couple of months.

          So addictive: I love the little massage moment and the smell is usually divine πŸ™‚
          Very true, we should take good care of our faces πŸ™‚ Hence my current obsession with sun protection.

    I like the sound of applying one of these beautiful oils before bed. I usually just apply my serum and moisturisers, do you just apply this on its own?xxxx

      Oh yes, it really is a lovely experience. I usually take a bit of extra time to massage it in πŸ™‚
      I combine this with a decent moisturiser, essentially this is my serum. I will use just a couple of drops of oil, massage it in and let it settle. Than a decent layer of moisturiser before I go to bed! Now that summer it coming I will use a little less oil.
