    Antipodes. Aura Manuka Honey Mask

    This is rising to the level of a must-have, staple skincare for me. Again, if you’ve read my recent blogpost, you’ll know that I am going through some severe skin journey. Sigh. But, that aside. Let me tell you about this amazing mask that has been saving me the past few weeks.

    It is the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask. I actually bought this months… I mean, months ago. But, after using it once or twice, I decided it really wasn’t worth all the hype (amongst British bbloggers, mostly).

    How wrong I was, because when I picked this up again a few weeks back, I was taken aback by how amazing the results were!

    Antipodes is a New Zealand certified organic and natural skincare line. This Aura Manuka Honey Mask can be used all over the face after cleansing and dried, or as spot treatment. I prefer to use this as a proper mask.

    The results of using this was most definitely all of the following: brightening, calming, hydrating, and spot treatment. All four results were really obvious.

    This really creamy smell glides on beautifully on the face. It doesn’t set like some clay masks, but remains somewhat cream-like. You can then rinse it off with warm water and voila!

    Here’s what it says on their website:

    The facial mask delivers a deeply moisturizing, cleansing and anti-oxidizing treatment. Fragrances of vanilla pod and mandarin linger to bring peace and balance to your aura – meaning you’re tending both your skin and your spirit.
    Elements of Beauty: Manuka honey remedies skin by attracting moisture, premium pohutukawa antiozidants treat skin, fragrant vanilla pod and mandarin pacify and balance your spirit
    Daily Ritual: Smooth thick layers of this creamy mask over your face and neck twice weekly. Leave for 15 minutes and rinse with warm and pure water. Also ideal for treating spots and blemished as they may arise.

    I highly recommend this mask! So in love with it 🙂 And I will restock for sure.

    Bright Eyes

    I’m on a roll with Burberry products aren’t I? Besides their price, I love their beauty products so much (as well as their fashion). I hardly see them go wrong. Every product is such a treat to the face. This time, I want to talk about the Burberry Sheer Concealer (Luminous concealer) which is perfection for under-eye brightening.

    I’m going to just put it out there. I don’t have dark circles. Not unless I haven’t had a week of proper sleep, which I have to say, happens time and time again. Otherwise, my usual self never finds any problem with concealing under the eye. However, there are those undeniable days when you definitely need a pick-me-up. You do your makeup routine. You look in the mirror. Something isn’t… well, fresh. Then maybe you think it’s the color foundation you used, or maybe the eyeshadows. But then you realize, it’s the usual routine. Nothing’s different, so what’s wrong? Well, more often than not, I’ve found that what you may be needing is some… BRIGHTENING.

    What I found lovely about this Sheer Concealer is that it is definitely sheer. I’m young and so I don’t have wrinkles under my eyes. But I often share beauty products with my older sisters and I thought this would be a great component to look for in a under eye concealer that we could all share. This doesn’t crease at all, even in the fine wrinkles. It’s so moisturizing and “wet”(?… that doesn’t sound too flattering but you know what I mean).

    It’s a pen so if you just click, a nice amount comes out. Don’t click too much though! Then you can put it under eyes. I like to just pat it all along, almost like a triangle downward from my eyes. This instantly brightens the eyes and the entire face! Of course, this isn’t just for the under eyes. It’s great for wherever you want to brighten. Maybe on the ridge of your nose, on your chin, and maybe mid-forehead. Love it!

    The color I have No. 02 in “Soft Beige”. For those of you who don’t know me, I have a light-medium (more of a medium) yellow-undertone skin. As you can see, this has an orange/peach tone. That, as I have learned through beauty blogs, is exactly what you want to look for to cancel out the blueness of the under eye dark circles! It really does the work.

    Although I don’t use this often, I have to say it feels reassuring to have it around for those not-so-good days!
