Rejoice: Light Facial Day Cream by Antipodes

Antipodes Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream

Staring at my current skincare line-up, I realised I have a thing for lovely fragrances. Obviously, I want my skincare to be effective first, but a divine scent comes a close second. My latest Antipodes moisturiser, the Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream, is no exception.

Rejoice contains avocado oil, manuka flower, and sweet almond. The almonds and a little added vanilla pod are the heart of the scent: it reminds me a little of sweet marzipan or almond cookies. Yummy! Such a delight every time I open the tube.

This product isn’t all about the lovely scent though, as the avocado oil helps combat fine lines and the manuka has antibacterial properties to help keep your skin clear. The light formula works for my normal to dry skin right now in the warmer weather, but wouldn’t be hydrating enough for winter. Definitely a great option for summer and a lovely moisturiser for ladies with oily and sensitive skin.

Don’t be fooled by the light and oil free formula, as the texture of Rejoice is rich and creamy. Despite this, it sinks into the skin quickly and forms a great base for make-up. The scent lingers a little after application, but isn’t overwhelming.

Rejoice comes in a biodegradable aluminium tube with 60 ml of moisturiser. I love the packaging: convenient to travel with, cute to look at and it will make it even easier to squeeze out every last drop of this lovely product when I run out. A tube will set you back £25.95 / €31 / $33, a great price for a natural light moisturiser by my favourite organic brand.

Kijkend naar mijn huidverzorgingsroutine van dit moment, besefte ik me dat ik dol ben op fijne geurtjes. Natuurlijk moeten mijn producten allereerst effectief zijn, maar een lekker luchtje is ook belangrijk. Mijn nieuwste Antipodes dag creme, de Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream, is geen uitzondering.

Rejoice bevat avocado olie, manuka bloemen, en zoete amandel. De amandelen en een beetje toegevoegde vanilla zijn het hart van de geur: het doet me denken aan zoete marsepeinen of amandel koekjes. Jammie! Elke keer fijn om de tube te openen.

Antipodes Rejoice Light Facial Day CreamDit product draait niet alleen om de prettige geur, want de avocado olie helpt fijne lijntjes tegen te gaan en de manuka heeft antibacteriële eigenschappen om je huid helder te houden. De lichte formula werkt goed voor mijn normale tot droge huid in warmer weer, maar zou ‘s winters niet hydraterend genoeg zijn voor me. Echt een goede optie voor de zomer en een prettige dagcrème voor dames met een vette en gevoelige huid.

Laat je niet bedriegen door de lichte en olievrije formule, want de textuur van Rejoice is rijk en romig. Desondanks trekt het snel in en vormt het een goede basis voor make-up. De geur blijft even hangen na het aanbrengen maar is niet overweldigend.

Rejoice zit in een biologisch afbreekbare aluminium tube met 60 ml dagcrème. Ik hou van de verpakking: handig op reis, leuk om naar te kijken en maakt het makkelijk om straks elke laatste druppel product eruit te knijpen als het op raakt. De tube kost je ongeveer €31, een prettige prijs voor een natuurlijke lichte dagcrème van mijn favoriete natuurlijke merk.

    The scent sounds like it would be lovely and avocado oil is a favorite of mine! In the summer time, in Phoenix… I’m always looking for lighter products because anything too heavy feels miserable in the heat. This really sounds like something that would work for me. Nice review (and the photo is super pretty with the tulips). =)

    I too enjoy a nice fragrance in my skincare. I know I shouldn’t admit that because most skincare purists will say that fragrance has no skin benefits and are often a source of irritation. But I can’t help wanting my products to smell nice! 😛
    This cream sounds like something I would like. And I also really appreciate that it’s a tube format. I’ve finally opened my hoard of Antipodes skincare – so far so good! I’m especially enjoying the night serum!

      True, and I do have to be a little careful with my sensitive skin, but natural fragrances are fine and usually smell even better than synthetic.
      Oh nice! Their oils and serums are lovely: which one did you get?

      It is a really nice one, though I would recommend their vanilla version for drier skintypes 🙂

        My skin is more on the oiler side so this one will probably suit me better 🙂 The tube is also very cute!
