I’ve been a huge fan of Antipodes skincare ever since I tried their Divine Face Oil. Overall, the brand is a legit natural skincare line that isn’t just a marketing BS, the price point isn’t as expensive as American organic/natural skincare brands, ingredients are solid, most products that I’ve tried deliver good to great result and most have the most wonderful scent. The only exception is the Joyous serum, which smell really fishy. I suspect it’s from the rosehip oil.
I’ve been delaying trying the Antipodes Apostle serum for quite sometime because I was already quite smitten with their Worship serum. I was afraid that this will disappoint me.
- If you’re looking for serum to lighten your skin or PIH/hyperpigmentation, this serum isn’t for you!
- But if you’re looking for serum that helps to give that radiant and glow back to your skin, than you might love this.

You must have seen these green Lancome bottles on my Instagram feed. I received it like last month in the middle of my eczema phase. Which is a shame so I didn’t have the chance to experiment and play around with the different range. But the one product that I put on my skin during this period is the Lancome Énergie de Vie The Overnight Recovery Sleeping Mask.
Lancome Energie de Vie range is a range of skincare to revive tired skin with simple products and routines yet efficacious to give dull skin instant glow. It’s something that modern woman, or anyone that’s looking to simplify their routine would love. The range is simple and the formulation is mostly inspired by Asian skincare if you touch the texture of the products.
What I have here is pearly lotion that is hydrating lotion. Liquid care that you can use as a booster, serum and emulsion in one and the texture is so light so this one product really simplifies your routine if you’re looking for a simple step. Lastly, the sleeping mask which I will be reviewing here.

I’ve been talking about antioxidant serum for so long now, I’ve even reviewed several that I’ve used so far here. I think they’re important as a way to prevent and maintain your skin to be at their tip top condition as well as to evades and neutralises the negative effect of UV rays. With that said, I have yet to see significant change in my skin when I’m using antioxidant serum. I do however see how significantly my skin look easily tired, getting more sensitive because of the UV rays and way easily tanned when I’m not using antioxidant serum. I think the effect is more on when I’m not using it, my skin isn’t as fit.
But that is until I had my eczema attack and I can’t use sunscreen because my derm is afraid that my skin will react negatively against the sunscreen ingredients. After almost a month of not using sunscreen and my skin didn’t get tanned easily, looked dull and greyish and my complexion remained even tone, I know how excellent my antioxidant serum is and it truly works!
What did I use? I used the Yuli Skincare Liquid Courage which is pretty steep in terms of price at USD 50 for a trial size of 7.5ml and USD 125 for 30ml. At today’s exchange rate that is pretty wow. I considered myself lucky when a fellow skincare enthusiast that I get acquainted on Instagram offer me this bottle because it didn’t suit her.

My collection of Antipodes skincare grow from zero to many in only short span of time. It’s easy to love this brand. The products are all natural, they use some of the best ingredients and of good quality, a really appealing packaging, great texture and scent! With the exception of only several items, most of their products smell wonderful. Most importantly they all work great on my skin so far.
One of the very first serums that I tried from Antipodes is this Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum. I picked this one because at that time I needed extra antioxidant on my skincare arsenal and my fellow skincare addict Nopai and Rika both have tried this and always praise this product. So I took the plunge and get a bottle myself.
What is it?
From the website: Keep skin youthful! Fortify skin cells against early ageing and free radical damage with this water-based serum accenting the antioxidant potency of New Zealand-grown superfruit.

Trilogy Rosehip Oil is my first love when it comes to facial oil. Not a day goes by that I thank Lena for introducing me to this wonderful concoction of Rosa Canina Seeds oil – in other word, the wonderful Rosehip oil. Trilogy is my go to brand for anything Rosehip related. Back in the days this is quite a famous brand because it has the endorsement of celebrities. Upon trying this product, I can see why those celebrities put their sign of approval in this brand because it’s really that good.
What does Rosehip oil do? It helps to heal scar, which means if you have any nasty scar from post acne battle, this will help significantly. It makes your skin appear brighter but I think this is due to your skin condition to be at its good condition and well hydrated so all in all it appears more radiant. Also, it makes your skin feel plumper.
During my skin detox, I used products from Trilogy because they work and they don’t have complicated ingredient list. It’s a tight-knit lot that works effectively with each other.
