最近我在慢慢把我全部的保養品換成「clean beauty」就是只有用有機或自然的保養品。最近我很喜歡的品牌是從紐西蘭來台灣的Antipodes，現在可以通過Jollyard在台灣購買。I’ve been slowly switching over to clean beauty these days, and recently I’ve been really loving all the products from Antipodes, a brand that’s from New Zealand which you can now buy in Taiwan through Jollyard.
Apostle Skin-Brightening Serum
我最喜歡的是Apostle Skin-Brightening Serum安緹芃靈芝葡萄籽白皙導入精華液。它是經過認證的有機食品，而且100％的成分均來自其植物來源。讀過一些評論，說要擺脫黑斑需要一些時間，但是使用此產品兩週後，我就已經看到紅血絲減少了，而且整個皮膚的膚色也更加均勻。今年夏天，我經常出去曬太陽，這肯定有助於減少發紅甚至恢復膚色。My favorite is it’s Apostle Skin-Brightening Serum. It’s certified organic and 100% of the ingredients are from its natural origin. I’ve read reviews that it takes awhile to get rid of sunspots, however I’ve already definitely seen less redness after using this product for two weeks, and a more even complexion throughout my skin. I’ve been out in the sun pretty often this summer and it’s definitely helped to reduce redness and even restore my skin tone. I saw pretty good results after a week and a half of using this, and have even stopped using makeup on some parts of my skin because my redness was so significantly reduced and my skin tone was so balanced. The water based serum is made from Waiwera mineral water, which was voted the world’s best water by Decanter Magazine, and is supposed to help restore essential moisture to parched skin. Its main ingredients are Vinanza Grape and Kiwi fruit, which helps to brighten and reduce fine lines on your face. The serum also contains Mamaku black fern and Reishi mushroom which helps with healthy cell renewal. The smell is a really natural fruity smell, which is really refreshing and nice.
Kiwi Seed Gold Luminous Eye Cream
另外一款很喜歡的Antipodes保養品是Kiwi Seed Gold Luminous Eye Cream安緹芃奇異果籽黃金全能眼霜，它對素食主義者友好且非常營養。主要原因我這麼喜歡是因為它既滑膩又輕盈，不會太硬，而且質地相當光滑，有時眼霜很難做到這一點。我喜歡它還含維生素C和E，因此它提供了更多的抗老保護，並且可以消除我可能從外面得到的不必要的污染物。它由23K金箔製成，可增強眼睛周圍的光彩，打開罐子時，你可以看到金箔片。它絕對可以幫助眼周變得明亮一些，甚至可以使金片留在我的眼睛周圍，然後吸收到我的皮膚中以產生露水般的光澤。這款眼霜的主要成分是紐西蘭超級水果奇異果，它的維生素C提取物可提供強烈的水分並軟化細紋。它還具有Viananza葡萄，有助於提亮和減輕眼下區域。Another favorite is the Antipodes Kiwi Seed Gold Luminous Eye Cream, which is vegan-friendly and very nourishing. The main reason I really loved it so much was because it’s creamy but also light and not overbearing, and pretty smooth in texture, which is sometimes hard to come by with eye creams. It’s not sticky or greasy which I like, and it absorbs really quickly making it work well under makeup. I usually put it under my concealer within a few seconds (sticking with the clean beauty regimen, I use Tarte Concealer), and had no problems with it not mixing well together. I love how it also has vitamin C and E so it provides more antioxidant protection and fights away unnecessary pollutants that I might get from being outside. It’s formulated with 24K gold flakes to enhance radiance around the eye area, and when you open the jar, you can definitely see the gold flakes. It’s definitely helped my my dark circles brighten up a bit, and even leaves gold flakes around my eyes which would then absorb into my skin for that dewy glow. What I love about this eye cream is that it leaves my eyelids bright and glowing well into the day if I don’t add any other eyeshadows or makeup on them. The main ingredient in this eye cream is the New Zealand superfruit, Kiwi which delivers intense moisture and softens fine lines with it’s vitamin C extract. It also has Viananza grape, which helps to brighten and lighten the under eye area.
Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser
我也超愛Antipodes的Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser安緹芃奇異果輕淨白皙潔顏露，它肯定會成為我的首選潔顏用品之一。我喜歡它在皮膚上的感覺很自然，而且不會像許多潔膚產品那樣使皮膚乾燥。它是您卸妝後或無妝日時使用的溫和潔顏品。它的使用更為柔和，使用後您會感到真正的提神。聞起來有水果味和甜味。 Last up is the Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser, which is definitely going to be one of my go-to cleansers. I love how natural it feels on my skin and doesn’t leave it feeling dried up which a lot of cleansers do. It’s not a very strong cleanser that removes a lot of makeup, it’s more of a natural one that you put on after you’ve removed makeup or at the end of a makeup-free day. It’s more on the gentle side and you feel really refreshed after using it. The smell is really similar to the smell of the serum, which smells fruity and sweet.
而言之，Antipodes的保養品都給我留下了深刻的印象。我一直在尋找有機的「clean beauty」～真的很高他們把這些保養品寄給我體驗。我特別喜歡他們的產品沒有經過動物測試，而且它們都不含香精和對羥基苯甲酸酯，這是必須的！因為所有這些護膚產品都是天然的和有機的，所以我通常將它們存儲在冰箱中（就像處理幾乎所有產品一樣），這樣它們就不會很快被氧化並且在使用時會感覺超級清爽！ All in all, I’m really impressed with the products from Antipodes. I was looking for organic, clean beauty for awhile and was so happy that they sent these to me. I especially love how no animal testing has been done with their products and they’re all fragrance-free and paraben-free, which is a must! Because all of these skincare products are natural and organic, I usually store them in my refrigerator (as I do with almost all of my products) that way they don’t get oxidised too quickly and feel super refreshing when I use them!
