Antipodes Delight & Joyful Hand & Body Creams Review

New Zealand skincare brand Antipodes have some of the most beautiful-looking products and their ingredients are second to none. The majority of their products do focus on the face, but their Hand & Body Cream is suitable for all over the body, for when you need a little added moisture. I was very kindly sent the Antipodes Hand & Body Cream in two different fragrances, Delight and Joyful, and here is what I thought.
The packaging is a little like a tube of toothpaste, except a lot classier. I love the tube idea as it makes it super easy to squeeze the product out of it instead of having to put fingers into a pot, which makes it ideal for sharing. Delight is the blue tube, which contains antioxidant vinanza grape, macadamia nut and bouquet of gardenia, and Joyful is the purple tube which contains pure avocado oil, wild blackcurrant berry and south pacific hibiscus bloom.
With it being both a hand and body cream, I was a little dubious that it may be too rich or greasy for my hands, but that was not the case and I found that it soaked into the skin really nicely and rather quickly. I really dislike standing around waiting for creams to dry, so this is ideal for me and there is no greasy residue left over, so you can dress straightaway. As it is a multi-use product, I think this would definitely make a great travelling companion as the tube isn't so huge and heavy that it would be uncomfortable to carry around.
Joyful is definitely the 'Summer' scent of the two, with its fruity and floral notes, reminding me of being on holiday, whereas Delight is slightly more floral and Spring-like. Due to the Hand & Body Cream being quite thick in texture, a little does go a long way and the 120ml tube is going to last you quite a while. I have been using this cream for over a week now and I can already see and feel a huge improvement - my skin feels softer, smoother and overall a lot healthier and hydrated. I do suffer from quite dry, flaky skin, but this has definitely managed to keep that at bay.

The Antipodes Delight & Joyful Hand & Body Cream cost £26.00 each and you can find them online at Antipodes here.

All the Loves,
