I mentioned the Antipodes Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser in my recent Foreo Luna post and thought I'd come back to it as I've had a bit of a thing for cream cleansers lately. While I'm a fully fledged member of the oil/balm thank you mam school of cleansing in colder weather, the lightness of a creamy cleanser is welcome in Summer. I don't use these to remove makeup, so this is a second cleansing step for me, or more often - a quick and easy morning cleanse.
These two formulas are fairly similar and coincidentally both come in delicious cream metal tubes that I have such a soft spot for. My first dabble with organic Australian brand, Grown Alchemist, was the Vanilla & Orange Peel hand cream, which is as heavenly as it sounds. The Olive Leaf & Plantago Extract Cream Cleanser is ideal for dry and sensitive skins to calm and cleanse without stripping and rinses off easily leaving no residue.
Shout out to my daisies... totally worth postponing the lawn mowing just to see their pretty faces.
Antipodes is a New Zealand skincare brand that I often turn to when my skin is playing up a little and I'm particularly enjoying the Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser right now. This silky smooth anti inflammatory cream helps calm any redness or irritation as it cleanses and leaves my face feeling comfortably hydrated. If you get nervous about products aggravating your skin, I really rate this range... another two stand outs are the Aura Manuka Honey Mask and Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum.
Anyone else switch up their skincare with the seasons?
