The Other Art Fair - Friday Favourites

Here at The Amazing Blog, we could not be more excited to hear that The Other Art Fair is returning to London. Taking place at the historic Victoria House on Southampton Row, this year will mark the 6th year and the 15th time the fair will be returning to London and promises to be an unforgettable event.

London is the first of five worldwide stops before the fair moves on to Melbourne, Sydney, Bristol and New York. Presented by SAATCHI ART, the fair will feature 130 artists and programmes! Each artist has been carefully hand-picked by a pannel of judges to bring you the highest quality of art while showcasing London’s up and coming artists.

The Other Art Fair is an amazing way to bridge the gap between the art and artist and provides an unbelieve opportunity for the public to interact with the artists directly. This year, the fair will begin on Thursday the 30th of March at 17:00 and will continue throughout the weekend ending on Sunday the 2nd of April at 18:00.

Tickets run from £7.04 - £15.40 depending on the level of entry that you would like to purchase. For more information or to purchase tickets visit The Other Art Fair’s official website.

Red-Out Calming Cleanser, Red-Out Serum - Repechage

At the Amazing Blog, we like to use products that are both good for our skin and tackle any environmental aggressors. We recently discovered the brand Repechage who create natural beauty products made with beneficial and potent ingredients from the ocean.  

The first product we received was a Red-Out Calming Cleanser. This facial cleanser is useful especially if you have easily irritated skin. It works with micro silver which works to combat the build up of unwanted bacteria on the skin. This product will have you seeing significant improvements in a short space of time! The combination of seaweed with powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories such as Quercetin and Rutin aid in restoring, protecting and balancing your skin. 

Following the cleanser, Repechage's recommend that you then use their Red-Out Serum, which works wonders on hyper-sensitive skin and with conditions such as rosacea. The product also uses micro silver to give an added protection to the face while also delivering essential vitamins to the skin. We would recommend using a light amount of this product twice a day to see the best results possible. 

You can purchase the cleanser here for £37.75 and the serum here for £62.75

Awakening Body Wash, Balancing Body Oil & Awakening Body Cream - Gaia

Gaia's luxurious spas in Devon and Boringdon Hall are the ultimate beauty treat. Their natural ingredients and artisan methods are truly something everybody should get to experience. However, we here at The Amazing Blog know that spa trips are not something we can often take, so it is brilliant to be able to take a little piece of Gaia's Spas home with you with their collection of body care.

Gaia's range of products includes sumptuous oils, scrubs, and washes for you to pamper yourself with at home. We were lucky enough to have three of their products to try: the Awakening Body Wash, the Balancing Body Oil and the Awakening Body Cream. We adored the packaging and thought that the bamboo wood finishes really complimented the green glass of the products!

Starting with the Body Wash, it's a very light and hydrating cleanser that has a fresh but not overpowering scent. It's made with the Gaia signature blend and infuses aloe vera with organic Calendula to gently refresh and clean the skin. We also enjoyed adding the wash to our baths to create a luxurious and comforting bath soak.

After washing, it's time to apply the Balancing Body Oil. This aromatic oil is blended with a combination of ylang-ylang and palmarosa and has an earthy and exotic scent. Safflower and calendula oil are great at soothing and hydrating the skin, totally relaxing the body and mind.

To finish your at-home spa experience, use Gaia's Awakening Body Cream. This is a rich and buttery cream that smells divine, combining shea butter, coconut, and organic yarrow to give you an aromatic sheen. The cream is intensely hydrating and creates a lovely feeling of elegance and luxury after applying.

To bring some tranquillity to your home, try Gaia's body care range. You can purchase the Awakening Body Wash here for £15.00, the Awakening Body Cream here for £38.00, and the Balancing Body Oil here for £29.00.


Multi-Active Accelerator & Multi-Active Peptide Matrixyl Serum - Treat The Skin You're In

Here at the Amazing Blog, we admire brands that are passionate about developing new and innovative skincare products that really do the trick. Treat The Skin You're In is a company that provides high quality anti-ageing products. Their extensive range means that they have products that can suit a variety of concerns or needs.

We were kindly sent two products to try from Treat The Skin You're In's NCN Pro Skin Care Range. The first was the Multi-Active Peptide Matrixyl Serum - an all-in-one treatment to reverse the signs of ageing and revitalise the skin. The serum is a concentrated blend of effective ingredients designed to deliver results quickly. The product claims to increase collagen production, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase hydration levels and reduce dark circles. The serum contains 25% Matrixyl - an active ingredient that stimulates the growth of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which aids in refilling wrinkles naturally. The product is easily absorbed when applied after cleansing and is suitable for all skin types. 

The second product we tried was the Multi-Active Accelerator Cream, a daily moisturiser that provides excellent anti-ageing properties. The cream contains a multitude of active ingredients such as Matrixyl, Pearl Powder and Carrot Seed Oil. This transformative moisturiser improves redness, firms the skin, promotes cell growth and diminishes scars. This product is extremely nourishing and works best for normal to dry skin.

Chocolate Milk and Banana Milk - BAM

At The Amazing Blog, we are always on the lookout for delicious food and drinks that are made with natural and simple ingredients. So it was an easy decision for us to feature and tell you all about BAM after we discovered the delicious, simply sourced and healthy chocolate and banana milk drinks they are making.

BAM make their delicious milk drinks with real milk and with 11g of protein, these drinks are free from preservatives, refined sugars added colours and artificial flavours. They only contain three ingredients: milk, honey and chocolate or banana; this way you know exactly what you’re drinking.

Who doesn’t want a milkshake every now and then, they are delicious and refreshing, but they also tend to be painfully unhealthy and full of added extras you don’t want; not to mention the calories. BAM, however, is guilt free as each drink comes in at under 100 calories.

You can purchase your BAM milkshakes here for £1.25
