Review: Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator

One of my favourite organic and natural beauty online shops, Only Naturals, offered me the chance to select a product to try and I chose Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator. Although I'd heard about Antipodes it wasn't a brand I'd tried so I was keen to see if they lived up to their luxury, premium, organic reputation.

Be a Shade Greener verdict

Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator is a rich exfoliating cream with avocado oil. As you'd expect from a natural beauty brand, there are no microbeads here. Jojoba beads exfoliate the skin without scratching which can be an issue with other natural exfoliators containing ingredients such as nuts and sugar. The small, round beads means it's not at all grainy as you hardly notice them and it's easy to work the beads into nooks and crannies around the nose and chin. The effect of this exfoliator goes beyond removing dead skin cells as calendula oil and carrot seed extract help to clear and repair stressed skin. Skin looked glowing and felt smoother, refreshed and not dried out. I've been using the exfoliator 3-4 times a week for just under two months and my skin looks clearer and feels softer. I would definitely look at buying this in the future as it has the perfect balance of being gentle enough for daily use but is highly effective too.

Price and where to buy Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator

Available from Only Naturals

£21.99 / 75ml


The product comes in a recyclable aluminium tube, although unfortunately, I can't recycle metal tubes in my household recycling in the UK. I guess recycling in New Zealand is more advanced. The tube is packaged in a 100% biodegradable cardboard box from sustainable forests which I can put in my recycling.


Directions – how to use

Massage into moist skin and then rinse well with warm water and a damp face cloth.
