Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask - The Neglected Face Mask

Having dehydrated but combination/oily skin means that it’s a constant battle to keep my skin hydrated while trying to control oil and breakouts. Like anyone who’s obsessed with skincare I have a plethora of masks to suit all occasions however having temperamental skin, I very rarely mix it up. Aesop Parsley Seed Masque and Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel make a weekly appearance and when I need to bring in the big guns out comes Origins Clear Improvements. I’ve had Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask in my skincare basket for quite a while and despite the hype, it  was left pretty much neglected. Until now. 

If you’re a regular on the beauty blog circuit I’m sure this mask needs no introduction - moisturising, cleansing and packed full of antioxidants this mask does it all. It contains glycerin, avocado and natural oils to hydrate and of course, manuka honey known for it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-sceptic and healing properties. It’s a slightly odd texture, it’s more like a rich gel than a mask and you can barely feel it on the skin. Once you take it off, now that’s a different matter. Skin is soothed, hydrated and just looks healthy. I’m not 100% sold on the clarifying side of the mask but it’s certainly calms and soothes the skin.

Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask is well and truly back in rotation.
