Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream - review and photos


I've had this cream for ages now so it's high time I wrote this post. Indeed, I'm around halfway through the tub, which is saying something because this clocks in at 30ml - twice the size of a standard 15ml eye cream. 

I've been using this for so long that I'm almost at the point where I'd like to give it a rest to try something else before going back to it. Not because I don't like it (I do), but because I sometimes like to change my routine before returning to products I know work for me.

I bought it in January when Priceline was having one of its 40 per cent off sales. I'd been meaning to go bonkers on Antipodes products for a while, but it was always one of the first brands out of stock during those sales so it took me a while to get my hands on all the products. This year I did, and by golly did I go crazy ; ). Moving on.

Antipodes claims/product details:

  • A luscious yet light eye cream for a cooling and soothing sensory experience
  • Ultra-rich vitamin c from the seed of New Zealand kiwifruit works superbly to help rescue damaged tissue around the eye contour
  • Carrot seed oil and aloe gel revive, soothe and hydrate the delicate skin 
  • 100% pure avocado oil nurtures and rejuvenates with a blend of essential fatty acids, omegas and vital vitamins
  • Scientifically proven to boost collagen synthesis and production by up to 82%
  • Offers exceptional anti-ageing benefits leaves the eyes looking bright, youthful and refreshed
  • RRP $47 AUD for 30ml (adorebeauty), but do shop around

I like the little glass tub this comes in.

The product feels like it's worth a lot more than the retail price - not only because the packing looks and feels good, but also because you get so much product.

Indeed, this little tub has lasted me a good few months of twice-daily use already, and it's still going strong.


This is a good, simple eye cream that does exactly what it's meant to do: it hydrates my dry eye area without weighing it down and it's the best eye cream I've tried that costs less than $50. (Aside from Mario Badescu's Glycolic Eye Cream, reviewed here.)

It's a lightweight cream that spreads easily and absorbs well, and a little goes a long way so it's lasting me for ages. Indeed, in many ways it's lasting me too long: the shelf-life for this product is only six months and I may well still be going with it by then!

The product has a very slight, odd scent that reminds me of plastic toys. While that's not appealing, it's so faint that I only just realised it had a scent when I came to write this review.

If you read this blog you've probably heard me mention that I have an eye wrinkle on the puffy part of one of my hooded eyes. This wrinkle only appears when I'm using a bad eye cream, and not once has it appeared while I've been using this, which tells me that this is hydrating enough for my dry skin.

On the claims: yes this is light but I don't think it's soothing; yes I do think it hydrates, nurtures and rejuvenates; and yes I do think it refreshes the eye area and keeps it looking youthful and healthy.

Otherwise there's not much to say about this product, other than that I bought it for around thirty bucks, it keeps my dry eye area feeling comfortable and looking good, and the large size means it's extra good value. Granted, it's not the most amazing eye cream I've ever used, but for the price and effect it gives, it's unbeatable.

An excellent product. 

I've also just given it an HG tag, so all that's left to find now is my HG pricey eye cream : )

Hope all's well with you, and speak soon x
