Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask // product review



Zimske večeri savršene su za umotati se u najdraži fluffy ogrtač nakon toplog tuša ili kupke, te posvetiti koju minutu više negi kože. To je savršena uvertira za dobar san, ali i bolji dan koji dolazi. Onaj osećaj kada znate da ste napravili nešto dobro za sebe- neprocenjivo, zar ne?
Prošlo je više od mesec dana od kada sam ''ekipi'' za negu kože pridružila novi proizvod o kome bih napisala nešto više jer svakako zavređuje posebno mesto na blogu.
Antipodes Aura- ime koje obećava i pleni u momentu. Maska koja dolazi sa Novog Zelanda, vešto spravljena u ljubavi s prirodom koja joj je podarila najdragocenije sastojke:  manuka Active 20+ med, vanilu i pōhutukawa-u (Metrosideros excelsa, poznata kao Novozelandsko Božićno drvo). O manuka medu pisala sam u više navrata, ali nije zgoreg ponoviti da se radi o posebno lekovitoj vrsti meda koja nastaje samo na Novom Zelandu i u Australiji.
Šta kažu iz Antipodes?
Ova maska zadužena je za dubinsko čišćenje kože i duha :)  Aura maska učiniće kožu podatnom i hidriranom. Manuka med Active 20+ prepun je antibakterijskih komponenti  koje će uspešno ukloniti nepravilnosti poput bubuljica, opojni mirisi vanile i mandarine umiriće i izbalansirati raspoloženje pre nego li telo utone u san. Aura Manuka Honey maska namenjena je različitim stanjima kože, a najviše se preporučuje dehidriranoj koži sklonoj nepravilnostima.

Winter evenings are simply perfect to wrap yourself into the favorite fluffy bathrobe after warm shower or bubble bath, and devote a minute or more to skin care. It's perfect overture for a good sleep, but also better day to come. That feeling when you know you have made something good for yourself- priceless, isn't it?
It's been more than a month since I've joined new product/brand to the ''team'' of goodies I have been using to take care of my skin, the one I would love to write more about because it certainly deserves very special place on this blog.
Antipodes Aura- promising and captivating name. Mask that comes from New Zealand, masterly prepared with love of the natures most precious ingredients: Manuka honey Active 20+, vanilla pod and pōhutukawa bloom (Metrosideros excelsa, also known as New Zealand Christmas tree). I was mentioning Manuka honey before, but it's important to say how this is a special honey with amazing healing power, produced only in New Zealand and Australia.
What says the Antipodes?
This mask cleanse deeply the skin and the spirit :) Aura mask will make the skin soothed and intensively hydrated. Manuka honey Active 20+ has potent antibacterial properties to cleanse and help clear blemishes. Divine fragrances of vanilla pod and mandarin are bringing peace and balance before you dive into sweet dreams. Aura Manuka Honey mask is made to suite to most skin conditions, especially blemish-prone and dehydrated.
Maska je upakovana u vrlo praktičnu i posve jednostavnu tubu zapremine 75ml. Vrlo se lako aplicira kroz otvor na vrhu tube, jedino treba biti oprezan kod prvog korišćenja, s obzirom da je tuba vrhom puna može se dogoditi da sadržaj nekontrolisano krene van :) Konzistencija je kremasta i vrlo lagana za nanošenje. Preporučuje se masku naneti u debljem sloju na lice, 2-3 puta sedmično- iako je maska dovoljno nežna da se može koristiti i češće, ostaviti da deluje 15 minuta, a potom je isprati mlakom vodom. Oduševila sam se opisom upotrebe na kutiji koji vidite na fotografiji ispod :) Presimpatično.

The mask is packed in very practical and seamless tube of 75ml consistency. It's easy to doze/apply through the opening on the top of the tube, the only thing to be cautious about is when you are opening and using it for the first time- since the tube is full, it may uncontrollable move outside :) The consistency is very creamy and easily spreadable onto the skin. The instructions advise smoothing on a thick layer at sunset at least twice a week, although it's gentle enough to be used on a daily basis. You need to leave it on for fifteen minutes before rinsing with warm water.
Masku nanosim tri puta sedmično, u smiraj dana nakon što sam lice očistila od šminke. Apliciram količinu koja odgovara zrnu graška na svaki obraz, čelo i bradu. Ne nanosim u jako debelom sloju jer smatram nepotrebnim, a i štedim :) Tamo gde ne štedim su područja na kojima se nalazi po koja bubuljica ili mitiser (uglavnom na bradi i oko nosa). Po nanošenju maske koža instantno upija sve dragocene sastojke i postaje osetno hidrirana (osećaj mogu uporediti s tek umivenim licem), a o opojnom mirisu ne mogu napisati dovoljno reči. Zamislite miks vanile... ne one veštačke arome, već prave pravcate vanile oko koje se razvija miris sočnih mandarina. Kao da ste zalutali na plantažu voća na prekrasan letnji dan. Sva čula su umirena i opuštena.
Vešto odabrani sastojci maske dubinski hidriraju i hidrataciju zadržavaju u srednjim slojevima kože (za to smatram odgovornim manuka med, ulje avokada, ali i glicerin). 
Što se dubinskog čišćenja tiče- ova maska neće ukloniti akne, ožiljke ili neke veće i problematičnije nepravilnosti, stoga ne očekujte nemoguće. Ono što će napraviti, pored hidratacije koja je izvanredna, umiriće nastale bubuljice koje će se u kratkom roku povući bez ožiljaka i tragova. Upravo na mestima na kojima se nalaze bubuljice osete se oni lagani trnci, što je znak da maska radi svoj posao.
Takođe, a ovo pišem iz svog iskustva, primetila sam kako mi je vrlo uspešno očistila mitisere i pore oko nosa. Sve crne tačkice nestale su već nakon drugog korišćenja i to je nešto što me čini srećnom!
Spisak sastojaka možete videti na fotografiji niže.

I am usually applying this mask 3 times a week, at sunset :) after I've cleaned all makeup residues off the skin. I am using the amount size of a pea on each cheek, chin and forehead. I don't apply it in a thick layer, since it seems unnecessary, but I'm also saving it :) Places I am generous while applying the mask are the ones with blemishes (usually found on the chin and around nose). After application, skin instantly soaks in all those precious ingredients and becomes more hydrated (I could compare the feeling with freshly washed face), while I can't even start describing the intoxicating, amazing fragrance. Imagine mix of vanilla pod, but not the artificial flavor- but the real, true vanilla followed with amazing fragrance of juicy mandarins. Like you have wandered to some plantation of heavenly fruits on an amazing Summer day. All the senses are soothed and relaxed.
Masterly selected ingredients of the mask deeply hydrate and keep the skin hydrated, retaining that hydration in the middle layers of the skin (I believe this is because of Manuka honey, avocado oil and glycerin).
As for deep cleaning- this mask won't remove acne, scars or some more problematic skin irregularities, so don't expect impossible. What this mask will do, besides amazing hydration, is calming and gently removing blemishes without leaving scars or redness. Right on places where blemishes are you can feel gentle tingling which is a sign this thing works. 
Also, what I've noticed is that after using Aura mask all blackheads around nose are gone and pores are less visible and clean as they have never been before. That is definitely something that makes me happy.
List of the ingredients is on the photo below.

Zaključak/ Conclusion:
Čini se kako lagano postajem ovisna o Antipodes remek delima za negu kože. Da, odgovorno ih nazivam remek delima jer je svaki proizvod maleno čudo u bočici, čudo koje obiluje dragocenim sastojcima koji će razmaziti kožu na način da drugi proizvodi više nikada neće biti ''wow''! :) Ova maska je nešto što svako mora isprobati u životu jer je jednaka najidealnijem spa tretmanu u sopstvenom domu. Volim sve što radi mojoj koži. Hrani, hidrira, omekšava, ulepšava. Apsolutno sve, pa i više od onoga što od jedne maske očekujem. Zato bih je slobodno mogla nazvati tretmanom, a ne običnom maskom.
Definitivna preporuka! Proizvod se može nabaviti online. Ja sam svoj primerak kupila na stranici feelunique po ceni od £21.50.

It seems like I'm slowly developing addiction to Antipodes skincare masterpieces . Yes, I am calling them masterpieces because each and every one of these products is small miracle in the bottle, miracle rich with precious ingredients that will pamper your skin in a way that some other products will never be as ''wow'' as they used to :) This mask is something everyone must try in their lifetime, since it equals the most ideal spa treatment in your own home. I love everything this mask does to my skin. It nourishes, moisturizes, softens, beautifies. It does absolutely everything, even more than I actually expect from a mask. That's why I could freely name it ''a treatment'', not just a regular face mask.
This product has my absolute recommendation! It can be found online. Mine was bought on feelunique by the price of £21.50.

  1. Na WL mi je već duže vreme, baš zbog toga što smiruje kožu, a i hidrira je. :) Već jednom ću se namoliti da je prebacim sa WL u korpu. :)

    1. Namoli se :D haha
      Šalu na stranu, znam koja je ''prpa'' odvojiti pozamašnu svotu za jednu običnu masku za lice- fazon, na licu je 15 minuta i ode u slivnik, pa-pa.
      No, ovo je nešto što me već mesec dana obara s nogu.
      A ja jesam picajzla kad se radi o odnosu cena/kvalitet.
      Ova maska je pun pogodak!
