Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream

If you watched my September Favourites video you will have realised that my Weleda Skin Food is coming to end. In a bit to keep the ends I thought I would try something new in the form of Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream. 

The Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream is a soothing, luxurious hand with a lightweight formula. The lightness of the formula is something that I was not expecting. I was expecting it to be a bit more thicker than expected. The consistency is more of a lotion which I liked. It absorbed nicely in to the skin. I tend to apply this for an extra boost of hydration on my hand in the evening when I am about to go to sleep. 
One of the things that concerns me about hand creams is the scent. I need to like the scent of my hand creams as the scent lingers a bit longer than other products. The Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream contains active ingredients such as Avocado Oil, Wild Blackcurrent Berry and Hibiscus Flower. The mix of all three gives a wonderful mix of floral and fruity scent making it light and not overpowering when you apply which I like because it means I would not mind using this on my body after I have been in the shower. 
The avocado oil keeps the moisture and hydration on the hands and I wake up with my hands feeling smooth and not tight. 
I had actually spied the Antipodes Joyful Hand and Body Cream in Space NK a while ago but as I knew I would mainly use this as a hand cream the price tag put me off slightly. I managed to grab this from TK Maxx for £10, making it hard to refuse. 
Antipodes on the whole can be hard to get hold off in the UK but you can find it readily available on Feel Unique. 
Have you tried anything from the brand? what should I try from them next?
