ANTIPODES | Joyful hand & body cream

Antipodes Joyful hand & body cream

Ok, let me set the scene.  I'm at home, it's a sunny day and I have the conservatory doors open.  Birds are tweeting and singing their song, all is quiet.  The baby is asleep and I've just sat down with a cup of earl grey and a magazine.  Sounds perfect right?  Well, that was me a couple of weeks ago.  And what does this have anything to do with hand cream?  Well, while I was sat down leafing through my magazine I realised just how dry my hands were.  They were cracking around the knuckles and crazy dry.  This is an occupational hazard when you have a baby, constantly washing things up like bottles, and keeping my hands clean.

Well, while I was sat there, on the end table next to me was my Antipodes Joyful hand & body cream which I hadn't cracked open yet - I was just getting over a touch of eczema on my hands but they'd recovered enough to move on from E45.  The first thing I noticed was just how gorgeous this smelled (kinda like the colour), like summer berries, really gorgeous - it's not only packed with wild blackcurrant berry goodness, but also hibiscus flower and avocado oil.  I squeezed a bit out onto the back of my hand and rubbed it in - instantly my hands felt soft and nourished.  The cream absorbed really quickly, not leaving any oily residue.

Over the next couple of weeks I found myself reaching for it several times a day, even putting it in the little man's change bag so I could use (enjoy!) it when I was out and about.  What I really like about this cream is the fact it's a generous sized tube, 120ml to be precise, so I think you really get your money's worth because lets face it, this isn't a cheap hand & body cream with an RRP of £29.99.

However, this is (at the time of writing this) currently on offer with for £23.19 so if this is something you've been intrigued by, now might be the time to pick it up :)

  1. Honestly this brand has been popping up on my radar for the past week, been reading a few reviews on it. I think it's a sign that it's time for me to pick up something to try.

  3. I must admit I really do like this - the scent is amazing!

  4. Ooh you should try it! What's the mask like?

  5. It's really lovely - smells amazing, first of all (like vanilla and mandarin orange) - and manages to both hydrate my skin and also soothe blemishes. I love it - it's pricey but so nice. :)

  6. The packaging on this really is beautiful, I love that colour, but it is a little pricey for a hand cream. It does sound like it smells amazing though x
