This cream has a lovely silky smooth and creamy texture which is easy to apply to the skin. It also has a lovely citrusy scent that lingers beautifully on the skin. It absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves it visibly softer, smoother and firmer. I haven’t used it long enough to see any improvements in cellulite.

I love this cleansing balm from Balm Balm as it is really effective at deep cleansing my skin. I like to use this as the first step in my double cleansing routine.
To use I warm up a small amount in my palms and inhale the warm, sweet and spicy scent of Frankincense. I massage it onto my face and neck for 1-2 minutes to melt makeup and impurities and then remove with the warm muslin cloth. I’ve tried several muslin cloths and this one is my favourite. The material is more coarse but it gently exfoliates and polishes the skin leaving it feeling clean and smooth.
My skin is left deeply cleansed and nourished at the same time. It leaves my skin soft, smooth and moisturised without feeling greasy.
Ooh! Oils of Heaven Organic Baobab Face Oil 30ml
Organic Baobab oil is rich in Omega 3,6 and 9, making it ideal for maintaining healthy skin. It is an excellent moisturiser. Baobab oil spreads easily and is absorbed quickly into skin without clogging pores.
100% Adansonia Digidata seed oil
Baobab oil is nutrient rich with high concentrations of antioxidants, Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin A, D, E and F. The oil is lightweight and has a mild nutty scent.
I massage 2-3 drops to damp cleansed skin. It glides onto the skin and absorbs quickly. It helps to lock and boost moisture without weighing down the skin or clogging the pores.
It delivers deep hydration and leaves my skin soft and smooth with a dewy glow. It also works well under makeup.

I’ve always enjoyed using serums from Antipodes as they are highly effective. This is a new serum for me and it was such a pleasure to use. The scent is a blend of vanilla and mandarin which is simply delicious. It has a silky gel consistency and looks like liquid gold.
I apply a small amount to cleansed skin. It glides onto the skin and absorbs well without leaving a tacky residue. I follow up with a moisturiser to seal in the moisture. My skin feels so soft, smooth and hydrated with an amazing glow. I will definitely consider getting the full size to experience long term benefits.
