Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Face Mask Review

The Aura Manuka Honey Face Mask* (around £22) from Antipodes, a blogger favourite from this nature-loving Kiwi skincare brand, has garnered some pretty rave reviews all over the Internet. When it arrived at my door I was excited to give it a whirl since I'd never actually tried anything from Antipodes myself. I've given it a good and proper several weeks of testing, but I finally thought it was about time to share my opinions.

Manuka honey is naturally antibacterial, making it great for gently targeting spots. With your regular face masks that are aimed at blemish prone skin, you'll usually find they end up totally drying out your face. This is all well and good if you have very oily skin, but what about those with a combination skin type like me? Enter Antipodes. This mask seems to zap spots while still leaving your face feeling hydrated. I like this. I like this a lot.

Now I've tried a manuka honey mask in the past (i.e. I slathered manuka honey all over my face), and it was a very sticky, slidey affair, with half of it dripping off my chin within the first two minutes. I was pleased, therefore, to find that this mask is more of a cream and feels much the same as applying a moisturiser. You simply leave it on for 15 minutes, wash it off, then bam, you're left with soft, hydrated and eventually clearer skin. I'm always hesitant to say a product will eradicate spots because I believe a lot of that sorcery's down to diet and hormones, but I've found using this face mask once or twice a week seems to do the trick and keep breakouts at bay. The orange smell is a teeny tiny bit too strong for me, but nevertheless it's still rather pleasant and refreshing.

Have you tried anything from Antipodes before? What did you think?
