I've been using this little gem from Antipodes for quite some time now, and have finally decided to review it. It takes a lot for me to write up a review, I don't post them all too often because it can take me such a long time to form an opinion.. do I actually love this enough to dedicate a whole post to it's existence?! I ask myself that a lot, plus, review after review can get a little stale, y'know!?

Luckily for you I have decided that today, a fine & swelteringly hot Monday in July is the time. The Antipodes Divine Face Oil is a beautiful golden oil made up of Avocado, Macadamia, Jojoba & Rosehip oils (plus more) to leave your skin hydrated, balanced and calm.

This was an absolute skin saviour when is was icy cold this winter, my skin became a dry, sore mess and using this daily, a few drops mixed in with my moisturiser day and night made such a difference to my skin. I am a total convert to facial oils now after discovering their wondrous properties and don't think I would be without them in my routine. 

The smell (to me) isn't unpleasant but it also isn't amazing, I think it just smells... oily (like olive oil perhaps) with a slight herbal twist. I've never found any facials oil to sink into my skin quickly, they can take an hour or two when applied neat before moisturiser. Mixed in with moisturiser however can speed up the process a little. This isn't a greasy, heavy oil, but I wouldn't call it light either (It baffles me how some brands describe their oils as light.. how can oil be light exactly?). It's definitely best for dry, dehydrated skin types as it is incredibly nourishing but oily/combo gals (like me) shouldn't be scared as it wont overwhelm your skin but help balance and provide needed moisture!

I admit I haven't been using this as much in the past month or so as I have been trying out other oils but I recently found a new use for it that has brought it to pride of place again in my stash (thankfully, as it needs using up before it goes off!). I have been making my own face masks recently and this little bottle has been coming in handy, but there'll be a post coming soon aaaaall about that! ;)

Have you tried anything from Antipodes? I'd love to try their brightening range!
