Antipodes Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser

Where I got it: I got sent this for review but it is available in your local Farmers, leading pharmacies and Health2000 website for $46.90 (free delivery on all NZ orders!)

What I got: This is a 120ml tube of Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser by Antipodes. It is certified organic and dermatologically approved for sensitive skin. It claims to clear impurities and remove make-up. The soothing formulation features anti-inflammatory Vinanza Oxifend® super-antioxidant, naturally extracted from pinot noir grapes from award- winning Marlborough vineyards. Nutrient-rich avocado oil and marigold flower gently yet effectively cleanse, freshen and soften the skin. Suited to all skin conditions, especially sensitive.

How I find it: This cream cleanser feels amazing! Feels very luxurious and very gentle.  The texture of the cream is soft but a little thick which is just great for massaging into the skin for makeup removal. I warm the cream up in my dry hands, then apply the cream directly on my dry face then massage with my fingertips and palms. I can just go on and on and on with massaging because it feels so good!

The cream washes off without stripping my skin’s natural moisture, so none of that squeaky clean feeling which is great for sensitive or dry skin. Even for combination/oily skin, its not always necessary the best to be squeaky clean because your skin’s natural oil is stripped away then your skin over-produce sebum to help protect the skin. For acne prone skin, you may want to use this only in the morning and use a more deep cleansing cleanser (I use Shiseido Ibuki Purifying Cleanser with my Clarisonic Mia 2).

Overall: I love using this Grace Cream Cleanser especially in the morning and at night when I am not wearing too much makeup and during colder months. As for the effectiveness of make-up removal, it can take care of light face and eye makeup, but I would still use my Bioderma Sensibio cleansing water to remove heavy makeup and waterproof eye makeup before using this as a cleanser.

Purchase? Definitely! This cleanser is great for even my combination skin! I would love to try many other products from Antipodes as well! I’ve already got my friends wanting to try this cleanser out and they have also recommended me their Joyful hand cream and the Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser.
