The grand unveiling of Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum happened at the Natural & Organic Products Europe show. Working in the natural and organic products arena, I always look forward to Natural & Organic Products Europe. Not just because of the buzz of the show, our clients’ exhibiting or the networking opportunities, but also because it’s our chance to catch up with some of the global brands we work with. To be honest, I wish they stuck around for longer when they did come to stay as catching up during the show or after when we’re drained, trying to catch up on work and all looking forward to the next weekend to recover. Nevertheless, I always try to make the most of these fleeting opportunities, and as always it was a pleasure to hang out with Antipodes founder, Elizabeth Barbalich.
What’s this Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum from Antipodes all About?
Well, my dear readers, I can tell you! It’s the latest anti-ageing launch from Antipodes. I am a huge fan of Antipodes products, and the two serums I have tried prior to this one – Joyous Night Replenishing Serum and Apostle Skin Brightening Serum – are real heavyweight skincare products in my opinion. The former is scientifically shown to stimulate elastin production in human fibroblast cells, and the latter scientifically shown to brighten skin in just 5 days. But moving on to Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum and its scientific studies; Worship is shown to inhibit oxidative stress in-vitro by up to 90%*. So this means that the product can help protect skin against free radical damage and early ageing, which makes this a perfect product for summertime use by all you sun worshippers!
I have to say that my skin feels better after applying an oil-based serum like Joyous than it does water-based ones, but having seen how effectively Apostle Skin Brightening Serum dealt with some pigmentation around my eyes I have faith in Worship to help protect my skin against the sun’s rays and keep it as youthful as possible for as long as possible.
Ingredients in Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum
Worship is packed full of superfruits grown in New Zealand, where the growing conditions give superior potency to these fruits. With Vinanza Oxifend Plus®, boysenberry, blackcurrant, kiwifruit and revolutionary antioxidant Vinanza Grape® from grape seeds. To keep the ingredients as bioactive as possible, and without any chemical residue, these cutting edge ingredients are extracted using only pure water. Also in the mix are coffee berry and açaí for their potent properties.
Using Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum
Because this is a targeted serum rather than a hydrating or moisturising product, I’ve been using Antipodes Worship Serum alongside Antipodes Divine Face Oil. I can’t believe I hadn’t tried Divine sooner, as everyone whom I’ve bought it for loves it! When I work with a brand I sometimes (bizarrely) tend not to use the products so much for fear of being judged as a blogger who favours brands who she represents in her day job. In fact, the reason I’ve ended up using Divine is that Mr BB put in a request for it as a post-shave oil, He’s loving it!
