Antipodes Avocado Pear Night Cream

Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream

I think this night cream might just be the answer to plump, hydrated, blemish-free skin. It works wonders whilst you’re sleeping and I think that when used after the Joyous Serum you have the perfect duo not only for combating the signs of ageing but for boosting your skins natural healthy glow!

If you have dull, dry, mature skin then this rich cream is going to fit well into your routine.

Green Skincare from Antipodes

People are becoming more aware of how they impact the environment (I know I am) and we are seeing more brands becoming vegan, sustainable and organic. I think It is such a positive step & Antipodes are a world leader in this, with over 10 years experience.

Antipodes is one of the few fully certified organic skincare producers in the world, making them a green beauty brand you can genuinely trust.

Previse DermApothecary Skincare

Previse Marine Skincare

Previse Marine Skincare

New to the UK & exclusive to Harvey Nichols, Previse Skincare has launched ‘six, plant-based, unscented skincare products specially formulated with dermatologists, free of artificial fragrance and essential oils. The ZeroFragrance line is crafted for a growing majority of shoppers demanding clean-beauty options.’ So if you’re trying to incorporate cleaner beauty products into your routine this is a line you need to check out.

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been trying 3 products from this new range all three come packaged in clean looking, simple green and white packaging. It is quite practical and understated and you might think it is a little basic for the price tag, but Previse has kept it simple so they aren’t wasting their budget on unnecessary packaging focusing instead on the quality of the actual products themselves. This is becoming quite a trend in the beauty world as more brands like Deciem are adopting this scaled-back approach to packaging, I love it & fully approve.

Luxury Skincare From Previse

Marine Granules Skin Brightening Botanical Scrub

This gentle exfoliator blends fossilised algae with jojoba and botanical extracts to gently buff the skin. This has a gel-like texture with lots of very fine scrubbies which exfoliate away all the dirt and grime your skin clings on to from the day. It leaves skin feeling smooth without being abrasive. I love using an exfoliator, they’re so satisfying and this one from Previse stimulates cell renewal and gives your skin a healthy, fresh glow.

You can even mix this Marine Granules with your favourite cleanser to give it a boost so you can cleanse and exfoliate all at once. Such a great idea! I even use it on the backs of my hands just to pep them up and remove dead skin to help them look smooth and rejuvenated.

Vegan Skincare from Previse

Purify Hydrating Skin Cleanser

This pH balanced cleanser is so gentle and feels refreshing on the skin, it removes makeup with ease. It is enriched with marine algae and botanical extracts to help gently remove excess oil, dirt and dead skin cells without drying out your skin. It is a great daily cleanser which can be used morning or night. It has slotted right into my skincare regime and because it’s unscented, mineral oil and paraben free I know it won’t irritate my skin or break me out.

Previse Body Mist Skin Nourishing Body Oil

Body Mist Skin Nourishing Body Oil

This is my hero product for Spring/Summer. I have a wedding coming up and have been using this oil daily so I can have bare legs and they will look healthy and feel super smooth. This Bodymist is rich in ‘Vitamin E Oil and features, eco-certified sunflower and botanical oil extracts for long-lasting non-greasy comfort. This plant-based body oil includes sustainably sourced oils that are naturally rich in vitamin E to promote supple, elastic skin. Apply to wet or dry skin for a healthy, radiant and shimmering glow.’

I apply it liberally, focusing mainly on my legs and really take time to massgae it in. This oil gives them a healthy sheen, It dries down quickly and you can get dressed right away without feeling or looking greasy. If body lotions & butter leave your skin feeling tacky you might find a body oil works better for you, an oil hydrates and smoothes without that greasy, tacky feeling.
