We all age, some of us more gracefully than others and although we can’t stop it, we can do our best to slow down the first physical signs of aging. The Freshness of the Morning range are natural and luxury products rich in vitamins, antioxidants, proteins, minerals, floral waters and much more. The Amazing Blog sees a lot of products claiming to be the latest anti-age miracle, but the individuality of FOM Cosmetics and their natural ingredients are what really caught our eye. We have been trying out two of their firming and toning body products: The Firming Body Lotion and the Body Contouring Serum to help us out with much needed 'tightening up' - especially recommended after one's Christmas indulgence!
The FOM Body Contouring Serum is £26.00 and can be bought here. This serum is 100% natural and includes Omega 3, 6, and 9, as well as Vitamins A, B, C & E. The ingredients that we particularly like are the Olive Squalane - 100% pure olive squalane softens the skin, improves elasticity, reduces signs of aging, and boosts cell regeneration. As well as Spilanthes Acmella - which stimulates the fibroblasts present in the extra-cellular matrix of the skin. Fibroblasts permanently interact with collagen fibres to create a 3-dimensional network within the supporting extra cellular matrix. Spilanthes acmella contains isobutylamides of polyenic and polyenynic acids, of which spilanthol is the molecule mainly responsible for its myorelaxing activity. By stimulating the fibroblast biomechanical functions, this active ingredient helps re-organize the dermis structure and visibly smooth the skin surface. Which is where science meets nature...! All of which sounds great to us. It’s easy to apply, you just massage it onto damp skin and into places that you feel need a little firming and toning. The dense liquid gets immediately absorbed into the surface of your skin. A gentle tightening effect starts to take place - which gave a rather pleasant sensation.
The FOM Firming Body Lotion has a lovely citrus fragrance. It’s £28.00 and found here. The pure Shea Butter and Botanical Nutrients are incorporated to firm and moisturise the skin. This lotion is very refreshing and again is absorbed easily into the skin. It’s light and non-greasy and really does feel lovely to massage into those places you want to achieve some firming. If you were a sherbet lemon devotee as a child, then this lotion will be the perfect nostalgic beauty product for you. All skin types can use this lotion making it very versatile. Of course, we know that to achieve the perfect toned skin it needs to be a combination of other things like diet and exercise. However, we think that FOM body products offer a head start. In fact, these two body products can be used together. FOM suggest using Firming Body Lotion in the morning and the Body Contouring Serum in the evening. Or mixing two pumps of lotion with 3 drops of serum and apply evening and/or evening. We like the way that these products from FOM offer a 'natural' way to help to slow down the aging process. To buy BOTH these products together, you'll be happy to learn that they come packaged as a pair at £45 (saving you an astonishing £9!)
