We had a cold spell in late February / early March (Britain I guess), so I decided to pick up the Antipodes Divine Face Oil – Rosehip & Avocado Oil. It is a bit of a mouthful isn’t it? I’ve read it called just the Antipodes Divine Rosehip & Avocado Oil online but I thought it best to use the name given on the label. Anyway, I digress.
I realised I needed something more nourishing for my skin. I was using the Origins GinZing Oil-Free Energy Boosting Gel Moisturiser but it’s quite lightweight. I really like Antipodes as a brand and Lookfantastic was offering 20% off so I thought I’d pick it up.
The Antipodes Divine Face Oil comes in a glass bottle and includes a little pipette to dispense the product. Although it’s fiddly and glass isn’t the best to travel with, I like the pipette as it means I can use the tiniest amount without any waste. At £21.99 for 30ml of product this is relieving as I don’t want to waste my money.
The oil itself is quite thick and yellow but once applied to the skin does not leave any sort of colour cast. It has an almost bitter smell which I think is from the macadamia and jojoba seed oil. It isn’t unpleasant and it smells very organic but definitely different from the usual sweet citrus or floral scents I find most skincare products have.
The Antipodes Divine Rosehip and Avocado Face Oil is definitely one I apply in the evening and leave to work its magic overnight. It isn’t greasy but I find it takes a while to settle into the skin.
A nutrient-rich face oil for fresh, healthy skin. The superior collagen-boosting action of avocado oil helps reduce the appearance of lines, age spots and scars. Capture rosehip’s high levels of Vitamin A and C and essential fatty acids, plus its known ability to help reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles.

Antipodes Divine Face Oil Rosehip & Avocado Oil – My Verdict
I’ve used the oil for around four weeks now and can definitely say my skin does appear plumper, brighter and more hydrated. My skin feels soft and smooth and make up applies so much better. I’ve not really noticed the reduction of fine lines because I don’t really have many to begin with, nor do I have any age spots. I think those who have fine lines or scarring might find this really helps though!
If you’re after a rich oil that plumps up and hydrates skin, you should definitely consider the Antipodes Divine Face Oil Rosehip & Avocado Oil, especially if it ever goes on sale as Lookfantastic always seem to have discount codes floating around. For vegans and those who are environmentally conscious, it is certified vegan and the bottle is 100% recyclable.
