Review: Antipodes Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser

The Promise: “Clear impurities and remove make-up gracefully with this dermatologically approved organic cleanser that is a true gift for sensitive skin conditions. Nutrient-rich avocado oil and marigold flower gently yet effectively cleanse, freshen and soften your visage”.

The Price: £24.99/$41.23 120ml

The Stockists: and

The Hero Ingredients: Marigold, Vinanza Oxifend Red Grape, Avocado Oil, Vitamin E 

The Application: This cleanser is so nourishing and creamy that it actually pains me to remove it. It applies really well, just like any good cream cleanser, and is sooo soothing. It is easily removed, taking every inch of makeup and dirt with it. The Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser has a thick creamy texture and a delicately sweet scent.

The Results: It would be wrong to say this cleanser delivers outstanding results because it is, after all, just a cleanser. Cleansers either remove makeup and impurities well or they don't - luckily Grace does. However, what makes this cleanser great is that it leaves skin ultra soft and works really well with sensitive skin. It is formulated with antioxidant-rich ingredients, such marigold flower and Antipodes' own Vinanza Oxifend, that help reduce inflammation and soothe skin.

I don't actually have sensitive skin however, to put this cleanser to the test, I leant it to a friend that does. My friend's skin is so sensitive that she really struggles to find any beauty product that doesn't inflame or irritate her skin. She tested this cleanser for two weeks and, not only did she not experience any bad reactions, she found that the cleanser actually helped to calm her skin and reduce puffiness.

The Pro: This one of the few cleansers that really leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated. 

The Con: The cleanser is a little on the expensive side. However considering that there is 120ml of product, the price isn't that bad.

What do you think of Antipodes? Have you tried any other products from the brand that you would recommend?
