Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask | £21.50 | Link

If you're a regular reader of beauty blogs or you follow me on twitter, then you'll be fully aware of the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask by now. The antibacterial, deep cleansing mask has been a staple in many skincare routines over the years and like the face mask fanatic I am, I knew I had to get my hands on it one day. Described as a deeply moisturising, cleansing and anti-oxidising treatment, I had high hopes from the get go. Did it disappoint? Absolutely not. 

The formula of this mask is unlike any other mask that I have tried, the thin, honey-like consistency which tingles slightly is a strange one, but one that I quickly got used to due to it's cooling and hydrating properties. The mask is quickly absorbed through the skin rather than drying, so my skin always feels like it's getting the most out of it. Despite loving it's hydrating qualities, what sold me on this face mask was it's ability to control and treat any spots or blemishes that arise. Manuka Honey is added due to it's antibacterial properties and it's ability to draw moisture to your skin. Is a mask that both fights blemishes and hydrates too good to be true? Apparently not. At first, I wasn't too keen on the scent, but over the weeks I've been using it, the vanilla/mandarin hybrid scent has grown on me and I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms if I don't slather my face at least two times a week. 

I use this mask either before I go to sleep or in the morning before I apply my make up. It leaves my skin feeling bright, hydrated and clear, soothing any redness or blemishes that exist. As my skin suffers during the transition between seasons this has quickly become a staple in my skincare routine and one that I can see myself continuing to use for a very, very long time.

  1. This mask looks incredible. I don't think I've come across a blogger who doesn't like this mask yet, I need to treat myself to this at some point!

  5. Do you rinse this off? I find that it's a bit too thick/rich to leave on. Absolutely LOVE the mask, it leaves my skin so soft and calms blemishes/redness. Great review!

  9. Fab review hunny! I feel like I’m missing out as I’m yet to try the Antipodes Honey Mask, but this sounds amazing and I love that it has antibacterial properties. I do like using my Lush one for my blemish prone skin but this sounds fab to use in between :)
