Review: Antipodes Divine Face Oil

Antipodes Divine Face Oil 30ml MYR 128.00

Most of those who follow my journey, knows that I love oils and much prefer it than lotions and creams. Ever since I switched to using face oil, my skin has improved significantly in terms of hydration and texture.Though my Marie Veronique Anti-Aging Oil+ has proven as good keeper for me, I am open to other face oil available in the market and the price factor is usually one of my concerns before purchasing.

When I chanced upon Antipodes Divine Face Oil, which I have heard a lot about, I was pleasantly surprised that the price was at a reasonable level and the ingredients looked good as well. I have been using this for more than 3 months now and it is about time for me to do a review on this.

My Experience

The oil is light yellow in colour and lightly scented. If I were to make a comparison in terms of colour and texture with my MVO Anti-Aging Oil+, I would say that MVO has a much deeper colour and feels slightly thicker than Antipodes. I have used it for both day and night for 2 weeks and found that this oil alone is not hydrating enough for me at night but is fine for day use. Though this oil works well in replenishing back the oil to my skin after cleansing, this does not really work on age spots or scars, even though with a month plus usage.

I also found that this oil does not give me the glow or healthy appearance which I experienced with MVO. This oil somewhat makes my skin a little dull. I am not sure it is just me but I don't feel the wow factor affect with this particular oil at all.


I was hoping that this oil would be able to replace my MVO but sadly, it does not. The only good thing I have to say about this oil is that it works as an ordinary replenisher for my skin for day time use because the texture is much lighter, thus not making my skin feel oily.

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.
