Love: Antipodes Juliet Skin Brightening Gel Cleanser


Call me kooky, but one of my favourite parts of any facial is the cleansing process, which I could happily lie and have done to me all day! I’m incredibly fussy when it comes to cleansers for home use as well, and really like to take my time giving my skin a good massage and then compressing and wiping with a fresh muslin cloth.
With all of the above in mind, it takes a lot for a cleanser to really impress me, but one I’ve just started using really has! It’s the work of New Zealand skincare company Antipodes, and is known as Juliet Skin Brightening Gel Cleanser.
The lovely Juliet is a high performance gel cleanser that is perfect for both normal and oily skin conditions. She helps balance oil production, deep cleanse and exfoliate congested skin, as well as helping with the healing of skin blemishes. Not only does Juliet smell incredible, but she also works pretty damn hard - containing scientifically validated Vinanza Grape, which is packed with antioxidants to help you achieve a light, bright and healthy complexion. Vinanza Performance Plus grapeseeds contain up to double the levels of polyphonic antioxidant compounds compared to grapeseeds grown anywhere else in the world, whilst another ingredient, Vinanza Kiwi is an antioxidant rich extract from kiwifruit grown in New Zealand. Kiwifruit are packed full of healthy nutrients, particularly the skins that have high levels of antioxidants to protect them from oxidative stress. Vinanza Kiwi Extract is extracted from the skins of kiwifruit and helps gently exfoliate the skin.
To use, just gently wet the skin of your face and neck with warm and pure water, and then massage the gel into your face and neck in upward strokes while giving extra care to spots and blemishes. Rinse off with a soft cloth or muslin and more water. Just bliss!
Now I’m obsessing about trying Antipodes’ Grapeseed Butter Cleanser, which is apparently perfect for sensitive skin like mine. If you haven’t discovered this brand yet then I definitely recommend that you do – it’s truly beautiful stuff.
