Antipodes / Apostle Skin Brightening & Tone Correcting Serum

30ml / £41.99

Antipodes is becoming a popular brand, founded in New Zealand. I'm using their Juliet Skin Brightening Gel Cleanser which is a keeper! You can read my full review here. I've since been using their Apostle Skin Brightening & Tone-Correcting Serum*. I'm going to jump right in and say the formulation is lovely, very light and sinks into the skin quickly which I like. That's because it's a water-based serum. The colour looks very similar to the Juliet Cleanser, I'm guessing that's down to the fruit ingredients, grapes and kiwifruit. These are grown and sustainably managed in New Zealand vineyards and orchards, and are traceable back to their origin. They are naturally extracted by a method that uses nothing more than pure water.

The key Ingredient, Vinanza Performance Plus, is scientifically shown to have a very positive skin brightening effect after 5 days of use.
Apostle claims to target pigmentation and uneven tone. Brighten your complexion and reduce redness or erythema. I don't have pigmentation but I do suffer from redness and having an oily complexion my skin can look dull. All of these factors have a dramatic anti ageing effect and the Apostle serum is almost like a youth elixir! Pro-longing youth! I use this day and night after cleansing and toning before my moisturiser.
I like the simplicity of the packaging and the pipette applicator means no wastage on the product front which gets the thumbs up from me!
