Amazing Avocado: Antipodes Nourishing Night Cream

I have discovered an accidental theme in my current skin care routine: Avocado. I recently realized that loads of the products I am currently testing and loving have Avocado in them. One of them is the Nourishing Night Cream by natural New Zealand brand Antipodes.

The Avocado and Pear Nourishing Night Cream also contains grapes and Manuka honey. Like most of my natural skincare, it sounds good enough to eat. It smells equally divine: very difficult to describe but sweet and herbal with distinct earthy undertones.

The cream has a very light texture and absorbs quickly into the skin. Despite this, it provides an great moisture boost to your skin. It works very well on my normal to dry skin, and I would say this product will work for all but the oiliest of skins.

I currently use this after the Antipodes Divine Face Oil – no prizes for guessing it contains avocado as well – and only need very little of the night cream: it spreads and moisturizes very well so no need to overload your face.

It works like a charm, the container seems to last forever, and the smell is divine. Scent shouldn’t be the selling factor in a cream, but just a whiff of this distinct fragrance and I get in a relaxed evening mindset.

Another very nice product from Antipodes, certainly an organic skincare brand you should keep in mind if you are considering switching over to the green side.


Ik heb laatst een toevallig thema ontdekt in mijn huidverzorgingsroutine: Avocado. Ik realiseerde me laatst dat veel van de fijne producten die ik nu aan het testen ben Avocado bevatten. Een van deze producten is de Nourishing Night Cream van natuurlijk Nieuw Zeelands merk Antipodes.

De Avocado and Pear Nourishing Night Cream bevat ook druiven en Manuka honing. Klinkt toch goed genoeg om op te eten? Het ruikt net zo lekker: moeilijk te omschrijven maar zoet met een kruidige ondertoon.

De crème heeft een hele lichte textuur en word snel door de huid opgenomen. Toch geeft het wel een goede hydratatie voor de huid. Het werkt heel goed op mijn normale tot droge huid, maar ik zou zeggen dat deze creme geschikt is voor bijna alle huidtypes behalve de meest vette huidjes.

Ik gebruik hem op dit moment na de Antipodes Divine Face Oil – jawel, ook met avocado – en heb maar een heel klein beetje crème nodig: het verspreid heel goed en hydrateert prima dus het is helemaal niet nodig om een enorme laag op je huid te smeren.

Het glazen potje bevat 60 ml en kost ongeveer €40. Niet de goedkoopste natuurlijke nachtcreme, maar ik vind het de prijs meer dan waard. Het werkt super, je doet erg lang met een potje, en het ruikt hemels! De geur zou natuurlijk niet de beslissende factor moeten zijn in huidverzorging, maar een snufje van deze opvallende geur en ik raak gelijk ontspannen en slaperig.

Weer een fijn product van Antipodes, zeker een natuurlijke merk dat je in de gaten moet houden als je erover denkt om naar de groene kant over te gaan.

    Pff prijzig, maar ik kan me voorstellen dat het een voedende nachtcrème is.
