Docteur Renaud's Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream

Here at The Amazing Blog, we understand that as we age, our skin unfortunately ages as well. As you age, you may begin to notice wrinkles, your pores becoming more visible, or your skin losing its shine. Thanks to Docteur Renaud’s new Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream, you can reduce these pesky ageing effects and go back to looking like a younger version of you. 

Docteur Renaud uses Iris for all of its age defying formulations because of its ability to strengthen the skin. The anti-ageing properties of Iris limit the breakdown of protein and collagen while maintaining the quality of the membrane between the dermis and epidermis. Maintaining the membrane restores the firmness and tone of the skin, reducing fine lines and decreasing wrinkle depth.

The Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream provides complete anti-ageing care, tackling all the signs of ageing by bringing together three Iris extracts. The combination of the Iris Cell Extract, Iris Polyphenols and Organic Iris combat fine lines and wrinkles, restore firmness and elasticity to the skin, reduce visible pores, and deliver a radiance-boosting effect. Pistachio Tree Resin, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oils, Hyaluronic Acid, and Docteur Renaud’s Phyto-Oxygenating complex also help provide a boost of radiance to the skin, while moisturising and strengthening it as well.   

After using the product, 96% of 22 females interviewed said their skin felt smoother, firmer and more plumped up. We couldn't agree more!

Created for normal to combination skin types, the light cream will melt effortlessly into the skin, leaving it looking younger and feeling silky soft. For the best results, apply the Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream morning and evening on the face and neck area.

Docteur Renaud Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream is available here at £44.00 for 50 ml. 


Kris D'Amour - Deep Nourishing Cleansing Balm and Intensive Soothing Face Moisturiser

Now that the cold weather is finally upon us, we at The Amazing Blog have begun to notice that our skin is starting to suffer. Thankfully, we were sent Kris D’Amour products that met all of our skin treatment needs. Overall, the Cleansing Balm and the Intensive Soothing Face Moisturiser have both officially become our skincare go-to’s for this winter.

The first thing that we noticed about both products was the herbal and earthy mixed scents of green tea, lavender and patchouli plant oils. Along with containing a marvellous smell, the products treat a wide range of skin types, whether it be oily, sensitive or dry. So, how do they do it?

The Deep Nourishing Cleansing Balm contains an incredibly effective combination of essential oils (Chamomile, Lavender, and Rose/Geranium) which help to reduce skin redness, fight inflammations, as well help to calm dry and irritated skin. The different oils and butters (Organic Shea butter, Avocado butter, Organic Sesame oil, Organic Argan and Avocado) fully hydrate the skin and repair the skins natural moisture barrier, making it feel soft and smooth. Additionally, the unique vanilla

 The Intensive Soothing Face Moisturiser was developed to specifically designed to treat the dry, sensitive and dehydrated skin type, which is usually prone to irritation and eczema. The moisturiser contains Sea Buckthorn, which is an oil that’s rich in Vitamins, minerals and anti-inflammatory agents. Together, they effectively calm, repair, heal and promote cell regeneration. The product is also enriched with Vitamins E and A, which protects cells from breakdown and improves immunity and vision.

Most skincare products contain high amounts of synthetic ingredients which have little actual skincare benefit.  Kris d'Amour moisturisers are different from the rest, for they contain carefully selected pure and active plant extracts that intensively balance and rejuvenate the skin, stimulating it to regenerate and repair.

All of the products 100% natural and free from artificial fragrances, synthetic chemicals, and dangerous preservatives and colorants. Products are available for a variety of prices here

Although the lotion can seem a bit heavy and greasy at first, it soon soaks into your hands and lasts all day. You can even use this on your elbows, knees and feet!

Pure Gold Collagen

It is no secret that a daily dose of collagen is said to work wonders against the pesky effects of ageing. I personally always like to put collagen powders in my raw vegetable juices that I religiously now have 3 mornings a week. However, l decided to try another version separately in the guise of a collagen drink. So I gave a mission to our team at The Amazing Blog to research collagen drinks for me and they stumbled upon our first one which is Pure Gold Collagen 

Pure Gold Collagen is a ready-to-drink liquid beauty supplement, designed to quite literally nourish the body from the inside out and terminate all of the effects of ageing. Never tried taking your daily dose of collagen as a liquid? Well, after quite the extensive amount of research,  Minerva Research Labs, alongside European scientists, have concluded that liquid beauty supplements can be 20 times more effective than both creams and pills. It can also take as little as six weeks to make a difference. So, for those looking for the most natural supplement possible for anti-ageing, this is the product for you.

The method to the madness is a simple sugar-free blend of hydrolysed collagen, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C. Once these ingredients are mixed into one and digested properly, they work together to target the fibroblast cells in the body and assist them in producing collagen. Overall, they claim that  the result should end in an increase of skin hydration, a decrease of wrinkles, and the general improvement of skin elasticity. Personally, I wasn’t too keen on the taste it was a little too sickly sweet for my palate (but that is just me). I trialled it for 30 days and haven’t noticed any radical change in my skin tone although to be fair I am looking a little more rested.  I would recommend this collagen drink as a great introduction for anyone who is considering added a liquid collagen supplement to their diet.

The Pure Gold Collagen can be purchased at your local Boots or on the Minerva website here for £35.99.
