For anyone living through the polar vortex and violent winds this winter you will know how tough the weather has been on the skin. During the day I have been ever faithful to my Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Cream, but at night I have really needed to up the ante. Step up Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream, a thick almost balm like emollient that has been a little tub of miracle worker for my face this winter. Now I have to say if you don’t have very dry skin this might not be for you, when first purchased I found the thick consistency a labours task to rub onto my face every night. It does take a little time for it to sink in, but once you have worked it into your skin it feels incredible. So plumped up and nourished. I personally love the smell; sandalwood is a favourite of mine and the active ingredients of manuka honey and avocado oil sooth restores my flaky itchy skin. Despite the heavy texture of the cream I am pleased to report it has not clogged my pores causing breakouts. I am very nearly at the end of my little pot and although I might switch to another lighter cream over the summer I will definitely be re-purchasing this when the colder months arise again.
