Review: Antipodes Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser

Antipodes Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser 200ml MYR 128

When my current night time cleansing milk from Paul Penders was at the last leg, I had thought of replenishing. Though my face love it, I held my brakes because of the price! It is priced at AUSD 36 ( MYR 117, excluding shipment ) for a mere 120ml. It is expensive for me in the long run and decided to shop for a new one, which leads me to the above.

Quite a mouthful name for a cleanser, eh? What drew me to this cleanser was..... definitely not the price! But it is much cheaper than Paul Pender's. Besides, they were having some promotion and bought it at a cheaper price. So, how was it?




Product Description

A pure base of avocado oil gently removes impurities while carrot seed oil promotes skin that glows with good health. Highest quality essential oils of lime and patchouli work wonderfully to deeply cleanse, freshen and uplift. 

Ingredients
aqua, glycerin, avocado oil, macadamia oil, jojoba oil, wheat straw glycosides, cetearyl alcohol, carrot oil, polysorbate 20, kawakawa leaf, mandarin oil, lime oil, patchouli oil, vitamin e, phenoxyethanol, iodopropynyl butylcarbarmate, grapefruit seed extract.

My Experience

The texture of the cleanser is creamy, but not overly heavy or greasy. Best yet, it doesn't leave any oily residue when rinsed. I would say the texture and feel is almost strikingly similar to the Trilogy Cream Cleanser. Even the packaging is housed in the same brown apothecary glass bottle.

For me, one thing that stands out in this product is the scent. My nose detect the patchouli scent the most. I know some may not like the woody scent of patchouli, but I, for one, love it! I have wished that the scent would last longer after rinsing, but in this case, it dissipate rather quickly. Probably because of the 2nd cleanser, which I would normally follow after using this one.

Overall

I do like this cleanser..though it is not totally LOVE for me. Yes, it does cleanses well, without leaving my skin dry or taut. Yes, it smells delicious and it contains quite a number of good oils and ingredients.... but for me, something is missing. I just don't feel the oomph factor here...besides acting as a day to day normal cleanser for me. Would I repurchase? I am not too sure...unless they are having some sales or promotion.

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.
