Antipodes skin care has a lot of good surprises. So far, my foray into this brand has been a positive one, except for that one serum because the rosehip oil broke me out. Their Saviour Skin Balm remains a household staple, especially for my 4 month old. I have purchased their cleansing balm recently, and it is still in my vanity, unopened, but many have raved about how good it is. I can’t wait to open it!
Recently, Antipodes released a brand new serum called Worship. It is water based with very high concentration of plant-active ingredients to deliver potent results to the deeper layers of our skin. I am actually really happy this isn’t another oil based serum so I was really excited to try it. For the past month, I have been using this daily and nightly and I really enjoy it. “Worship” is infused with a powerful cocktail of super antioxidant fruit extracts including raspberry, boysenberry, blackcurrant, acai berry, coffee berry, kiwi fruit and Antipodes’ trademark Vinanza grape seed extract. Everything seems berry to me, from the colour of the serum to the scent of it. I love my berries, so I don’t mind it at all!
Let me first tell you that this serum feels like water indeed. It is completely oil free, and the serum is absorbed into my face in seconds, literally. Once it is absorbed, my skin feels tighter, as if I used an astringent. I usually follow this with moisturizer, and skin feels more comfortable after that. This serum provides antioxidant protection for the skin against UV and environmental free radical damage, the main cause of “pre-mature” skin aging. I cannot attest to any anti aging properties, but I can tell you my skin feels more hydrated and supple. My face looks brighter and smoother, but it might be due to a concoction of lotions and potions.
The Antipodes Worship serum is available since 1 April 2015, selling for RM179. You can get it at The TNS Skin Lab and if there’s none near you, there is always online shopping (non affiliated). Have you tried any Antipodes products? If you’re looking for a super lightweight serum that starts you off with some berry goodness, do give Worship a try. I really like it so far 🙂
