Antipodes Grapeseed Butter Cleanser

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a Antipodes review and with no shortage of their products on my bathroom shelf, I decided it was high time for another one!

Today I want to talk about what has become one of my favourites amongst the range- The Grapeseed Butter Cleanser. This cleanser is one that truly feels like I’m being pampered every time I use it.

An oil based cleanser, it’s main ingredients are cacao butter and the Vinanza Grape antioxidant which appears in many other Antipodes products. I know it can be a scary thing to use a oil based cleanser, but trust me, this stuff works WONDERS! I can be prone to oily skin but I have absolutely no problems with this deliciously rich product.

The Grapeseed Butter Cleanser really is like butter… It’s thick consistency with tiny exfoliating balls mean you need to really work it into your skin. I use it at night to remove my makeup and it does take a bit of extra work to get the cleanser off but the results are worth it. My skin always feels buttery soft, hydrated, exfoliated and not one bit of makeup left on my face.

It does leave a ever-so-slight hydrating residue on the skin so it’s best not to use it before makeup but it’s brilliant at night before bedtime. Combined with the Joyous Night Serum and the Avocado Pear Night Cream, your skin will get everything it needs to replenish overnight and wake up feeling nourished and hydrated.

The Grapeseed Butter Cleanser sells for NZ$46.90 on the website. The only downside of this product is that I tend to go though it pretty quickly! Out of all my Antipodes products, it’s probably the one that needs replacing most often! But then I am pretty generous with the application  😉

Suited to most skin conditions, especially super dry, this cleanser should be a must-have. Trust me, once you’ve tried it, you won’t be able to live without it!

  1. Wow, what a glowing review! But I wanted to ask about the exfoliating balls you mention – are they plastic? Because those are terrible for the environment!

      • Oh, that’s wonderful! They sound like they would be great for your skin, and won’t hurt the environment like plastic ones would. Yay!
        I’ll have to give that gel a try.
