The Australasian Skincare Edit

It seems like ages since I did my last skincare post on the blog, so it's unsurprising that my skin has packed it in lately. Summer and the humidity doesn't really help my combination skin but neither does my neglectfulness, let's be real. Today I'm taking it back to basics with fuss free, almost all natural products. They're all from New Zealand and Australian brands which I like as well and hey, it doesn't help that their packaging is aesthetically pleasing too. Anyway, here's what I've been loving from Aesop and Antipodes...

Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Masque-I remember this mask being a bit of a beauty blogger staple a few years ago. Anna was a huge fan among others. My friend grabbed this for me from Aesop in Australia last month and I've used this whenever my skin's been throwing a tantrum during January. Its scent reminds me a bit of Angels on Bare Skin from Lush-herbal and Lavender but not too intense. This clay mask is intensive and really does its magic when drawing out impurities from your skin. I can see why this is such a fan favourite.

Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream*-I do love a good eye cream and this one delivers. It does take a while to work in but it's worth the effort because it's so hydrating. It contains a host of vitamin rich ingredients from avocado to carrot. You only need the smallest amount per application so it'd last you ages. I'll be honest, this eye cream isn't cheap but it is worth the money in my opinion. If you want to minimise the signs of tired eyes, you can't go wrong with this one.

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash-This was totally an impulse buy but like the face mask, I'd heard many a blogger rave about this hand wash so I had to pick it up. It is pretty inexpensive too so that's a bonus. This hand wash, or gel if you will is scented with mandarin rind, rosemary leaf and cedarwood atlas. It smells divine and it sinks in+dries so fast. Aesop, it's love. 

Antipodes Immortal SPF15 Face & Body Moisturiser*-To be honest, I tend to not moisturise in the morning which is probably a habit I should break. This moisturiser is doing the trick. It is lightweight, but thick enough to feel nourishing. Even though it contains a little bit of SPF, it doesn't feel tacky and gross like some facial moisturisers with the SPF element can. I'd say this moisturiser might not be hydrating enough for drier skin types but everyone else should find this okay. I love that it comes in a tube too. Who else finds the idea of reaching in to a pot of moisturiser a little unhygienic?

-Have you tried any of these products before?
