We all know that I’m already a fan of Antipodes Scientific Skincare since switching to it last year after some major skin complications and seeing some notable results from the Juliet Skin Brightening Gel and the Hosanna H20 Intense skin Plumping Serum ( reviews in the links ). This time around I decided to spurge on the Avocado Pear Nourishing Cream in hopes of battling the dry skin season change blues
Please note: When I do a product review I prefer to have used the product for 5 days or more in order to give it a fair trial. No fluffy reviews here!

The cream comes in an attractive 60ml brown glass jar and retails for $62.50 at Farmers department stores. You can make the most of their buy 2 get one free deal that pops up from time to time.
I began using this 5 days ago and I have started to see a difference, in particular I found my skin soft and smooth for makeup application . On opening the jar I initially found the scent strong and smelling of Calendula, however it doesn’t overwhelm you on the skin and I grew used to it ( I quiet like it now) . The cream is lovely and thick, absorbs well into my skin without leaving a greasy film, however I found my nose greasy in the morning so I now do not apply it there.
The formulation is quite thick and hydrating, spreads well and little really does go a long way .
My skin afterwards is now feeling well hydrated and looks brighter, I have seen a little difference in my finer lines on my face which is an added bonus.
I would recommend this cream for dry, normal and combination skin, if you have oily skin you may find this too rich.
