Therapie by Roques O'Neil - Inner Light Sleep Drops

Sleep drops Image blogpost option 1.jpg

If you are keeping up on The Amazing Blog you will know how much we rate Michelle Roques-O’Neil’s Therapie aromatherapy products. We were lucky to have used their Restore Aura Spray as well as their Himalayan Detox Bath Salts and Cherish Skin Repair Body Serum in the past. Always being busy and on-the-go we know how important it is to relax at the end of the day – but we also know it can be hard to unwind sometimes. That’s why we wanted to review the Therapie Inner Light Sleep Drops today, which have helped us get a much deeper and more blissful sleep.

The Sleep Drops contain a fantastic mix of oils for example passionflower, frankincense, sandalwood, lavender and many more.  All those ingredients work to calm and soothe your mind as well as effectively strike overextended nerves so you can fall into a deep and nourishing slumber. Overnight your body and mind can restore and rebuild thanks to these Sleep Drops. What we love about the Inner Light Sleep Drops is how versatile they are. You can put 30 drops in a hot bath and soak for 20 minutes, have a foot bath or use them on a cotton wool pad under your pillow. We enjoyed soaking a cloth with warm water that was infused with the drops and then putting it on our face for 30 seconds breathing deeply.

The small bottle is great for travelling and perfect for taking on those stressful business trips. It’s also a go-to product when you feel the need to unwind and slow down your hectic pace of life. You can buy the Inner Light Sleep Drops on their own for £48 here or you can purchase them with a The Colourful Dot Rose-Quartz for £58 here.

Absolute Collagen - Protein Rich Marine Collagen Supplement For Men

blog final.jpg

Superfoods and supplements have become more and more popular over the past years and we at The Amazing Blog are always on the lookout for new and beneficial supplements to include in our diet. There is still a big trend for ingestible beauty supplements (which means beauty products you swallow rather than apply to your skin) particularly those that are collagen or hyaluronic acid based. We were very interested to hear that the award-winning British brand Absolute Collagen had launched the first-ever men’s ingestible beauty supplement, their Protein Rich Marine Collagen Supplement. We applaud this brand for recognising the need for specific male skincare supplements.

The Protein Rich Marine Collagen has numerous benefits. Fish collagen has superior bioavailability, which means it’s quickly absorbed into the body when digested. Once in the bloodstream, it starts working its magic. The Absolute Collagen supplement encourages the fibroblasts responsible for collagen reproduction to kick-start and therefore helps to fight signs of ageing.

One sachet of 10ml makes a daily dose of the marine collagen. The Supplement is as ‘absolute’ as possible, containing vitamin C for absorption and lemon and sucralose for taste. You can take the marine collagen direct from the sachet or mix it with hot and cold drinks or even add it to yoghurt – the possibilities are endless. We only had a two week supply, and I would like to add that probably I need a lot longer time than just a few weeks, to see significant results. However, I have to say that my joints felt more fluid and my fine lines did start to look slightly more plumped-out. The supplement does actually boast that the skin will look smoother, plumper and more hydrated, so perhaps this is just the start. They also state that the collagen benefits nails, joints, blood vessels, ligaments and tendons as well. I'm very tempted to keep going and order more! You too can order a 14-day supply of the Protein Rich Marine Collagen Supplement for Men here for £29.99.

Golden Greens Organic – Organic Prebiotic Inulin Fibre

BLOG.jpg

A little while ago here on The Amazing Blog, we wrote about one of our favourite supplements the Organic Golden Turmeric from Golden Greens and recently, we also featured their Expert Collagen Complex. We like to keep a watchful eye for new product launches from our friends at  Golden Greens as we particularly like their ethos, and as our regular readers will know, we also like to support SME brands. This organic company was founded by two individuals, who noticed the incredible benefits adding more super-foods to their diets had. Today we're happy to share another great product from Golden Greens range, their Golden Green’s Organic Prebiotic Inulin Fibre. This is a slightly sweet powder, that is rich in fibre and can be mixed into water/smoothies or sprinkled over food. The powder can help to add a lot of flavour and nutrients to your diet.

The Organic Prebiotic Inulin Fibre found it's way into our morning smoothies getting the day off to a good start! Fibre, the star ingredient in this powder, is known to improve digestive health. It also helps to prevent heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and weight gain. The Prebiotic Inulin Fibre is perfect for people of all dietary needs; as it is gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan, non-GMO, 100% natural, and certified organic by the Soil Association.

In addition, to adding the  Golden Green’s Organic Prebiotic Inulin Fibre to a morning smoothie it can also be taken before bedtime, to promote a healthier and more sound night's sleep. We suggest taking the fibre 90 minutes before you plan on going to sleep. You can simply add the powder to a glass of water or warm milk.  This Prebiotic Inulin Fibre is a fantastically easy and delicious way to make sure that you get your daily dose of fibre. Each packet contains 250g of powder or 50 servings. Golden Greens Organic Prebiotic Inulin Fibre is available here for £12.99.

White Glo – Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste

BLOG TEMPLATE.jpg

Recently, we've seen charcoal being used in just about everything! We’ve seen charcoal in ice cream, face masks, and beverages etc. So when we heard about White Glo’s Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste, we knew that we had to try it. Here at The Amazing Blog we're always looking for new ways to brighten our smile, and this toothpaste looked like a great solution. White Glo was founded in Australian in 1993 by Barros Laboratories Pty Ltd; they were the first brand to introduce consumer teeth whitening products into Australia. The brand prides itself on making highly effective products at an affordable price and this their Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste is just one of many oral products that they market. 

As surprising as it may sound, putting black charcoal on your teeth actually helps to correct discolouration. One of the main ingredients used in the toothpaste is activated charcoal. Activated charcoal provides many benefits for the teeth; it is able to remove deep stains, prevent bad breath, and whiten tooth enamel. Stains and bacteria are drawn to the activated charcoal which removes them from the teeth and creates a whiter smile. This toothpaste has a low-abrasion formula that is a safe way to whiten teeth while still protecting against cavities and bad breath. We liked the fresh taste, this toothpaste left our mouths feeling clean, refreshed and our teeth looking brighter! 

A pack of White Glo Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste also includes a toothbrush and a set of dental flosser toothpicks. We'd definitely recommend this product for not only performance but also the taste. You can buy a 150g tube of White Glo’s Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste for yourself in person at Boots for £5 here or from ASDA or Tesco.
