Review: Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream

When the Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream was released not too long ago, I knew it was right up my street; I'm obsessed with hand creams and I adore the two Antipodes products I already own (the Divine Face Oil and Aura Manuka Honey Mask). So when the lovely Laura from CSI Beauty Blog so generously offered to send me one of hers as she had got two free from a website deal, I jumped at the chance.


The Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream comes in a 120ml tube with pretty pinky-purple (or purpley-pink?!) packaging. It is fragranced with wild blackberry and South Pacific hibiscus flower and enriched with super nourishing ingredients including avocado oil, macadamia oil, calendula oil and Vitamin E. Antipodes say, "This captivating and velvety cream will leave your skin dewy and fragrant, and free from oily residue". The only downside is that this retails at £29.00, although I have found it for £24.99 from the website Lucy Rose here. It is advertised as suitable for all skintypes. 

To be honest, I only had to use it once to fall for the Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream hook, line and sinker. The scent is just divine; light, fruity (but not too much) and the epitome of summer. It lingers for ages after you've used the cream too. What you have is a rich but not heavy, seriously creamy formula that absorbs quickly and isn't greasy or oily. It isn't the most intensive formula but it leaves your skin hydrated and smelling beautiful. Thank you Antipodes, because this is just joyful to use (sorry, I couldn't resist).

If you love your hand and bodycare products, then I'd highly recommend the multi-tasking Antipodes Joyful Hand and Cream. Yes it is expensive, but I promise it's worth it. 

Have you tried this product? Are you a fan of Antipodes?
