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 approximately £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.
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.
