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.

My friend told me that I should make a list of my favourite skincare. So I am doing it now and it seems that everyone is asking for it because Caroline Hirons is doing it. So in this post I’m only going to include face mist from natural brands, not including the ridiculously expensive one and the non-natural brands. Cause I can’t decide like that. Also, it’s not in any particular order.
I actually posted this a while back on my Instagram, but here goes a more elaborate version. I’m asked many times whether this hydrating toner and that hydrating toner is more hydrating than the others. First of all, I want to clarify that I personally think the most hydrating toners are those that you pat into your skin using cotton pad, it allows for better absorption. Second is the gel type that you apply by hands, but sometimes it will take time to absorb. Lastly, is the face spray. It sort of sit on top of your skin and dries off. But I like the cooling sensation though.
In this post I want to give you the comparison of the face mist from the natural skincare brands.

I started with one little starter pack of Antipodes skincare and it’s now spiralling out of control. I don’t think I will come across a product from this brand that I will not love. But I haven’t tried everything, so there’s still 50% chance that I might find something that I don’t like. But now is the time to talk about yet another product that I love.
The product that I’m going to review today is the Antipodes Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser. I got this from Benscrub and it retails for Rp 549,000. This is a PR sample that I got from the lovely Ben, but I have to pick the product that I want so I don’t end up with a product that is not suited for my skin or I don’t like. Perfect arrangement.
Before I begin my review let me tell you about the scent. It’s STRONG! It needs to written in caption because it’s that strong. It reminds me of the scent of Indonesian jamu and all the traditional spices. But if you’re into the natural spices spa scent, than you’ll have no problem with the scent. I know some people who might be put off simply by the scent. On top of that, the scent kind of lingers long after you wash your cleanser. Continue reading “If you’re into jamu slash spa-like scent, you’ll love Hallelujah Cleanser!”
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.

In an attempt to provide information for my readers, I’ll do a series of informative ‘shopping destination’ on where to buy skincare products that I’ve posted on both my Instagram and in this blog. If, they’re available here in Indonesia.
I first came across Ben Scrub because I was searching for any Instagram or Online shop that sells Australian skincare product. I get most of my stash directly from Australia when friends are travelling to the down under. Much to my surprise, most of the new skincare that I’ve tried so far have been mind blowing so I keep recommending them. Case in point, the brand Antipodes and Goodness, they’re both terrific brands.
So Ben Scrub becomes my go to destination for all Australian skincare, also bath and body products. I’ve also convinced him to add one product that I’m head over heels!
So here are five things that you can purchase at Ben Scrub.

Being surrounded by beauty junkie alike from FD means that I’m no short of offers to get me beauty stuff from overseas. The problem is, this makes me short on cash *gah!*. On my friend’s recent visit to Australia, she managed to get me these loot. I’m so excited of these natural goodies, which the Aussies (and extend that to the Kiwis) are known for. If the French have Pharmacy, then the Aussie have Chemist. It’s loaded with affordable skincare and mostly dominated by homegrown beauty product that is either organic or natural. They’re also serious when putting those labels. On top of that, compared to the Western Hemisphere products, the price tag is much much more reasonable.
See the description after the jump.
