Hydra Cell Active Collection – Elizabeth Grant

At the Amazing Blog, we know what it is like to be disappointed by the appearance of our ageing skin. For that reason, when we discovered the Hydra Cell Active Collection from Elizabeth Grant, we were very excited to try it. This is because we are aware that as we age, we lose the capacity to produce Hyaluronic Acid, making our skin look saggy and wrinkled.

This new hydra cell active line will hydrate your skin enough to help plump it up and nourish the aspect of your skin that makes it firm by incorporating three types of Hyaluronic Acid. With this new line, you will have access to your own intensive Hydra treatment in a 55 ml bottle, a day and night face cream in a 100 ml bottle, and an eye cream in a 50 ml bottle. The day and night cream tighten and plump the skin thanks to the combination of tri-Complex hyaluronic, which protects the skin from dryness. This cream will also decrease the appearance of deep wrinkles conducive to smoother and radiant skin. Though, the trait we thought to be most special about this product is that the collagen in it helps to improve deep facial contours.

The Eye cream, as its name implies, reduces the appearance of ageing around the eyes thanks to its wrinkle-fighting ingredients that help reduce lines under eyes. Just like the cream mentioned above, the blend of tri-complex Hyaluronic moisturises skin for more elasticity. With this eye cream, you will no longer have tired eyes! Finally, the last touch of this line is the active treatment, which helps obtain younger looking skin. This hydrating skin treatment re-establishes the appearance of plumpness, gives volume to the skin, and leaves it feeling lifted.

Try this new Hydra Cell Active line, you can purchase the intensive treatment for only £29.99 here. The eye cream is available to purchase here for £76.34 and this for the 50ml here.  Also you can grab the day and night face cream here for £21.93.

SKINERGIE and BEAUTY SHOT - Daniele de Winter

Here at The Amazing Blog, we love to nourish ourselves with healthy food and exercise. However, sometimes we need a little extra support from supplements to get the best from our bodies. That is why we were eager to try the range from Daniele de Winter, just in time for the warmer months.

For skin that is smooth and blemish free, SKINERGIE works from within, supplying the body with a boost of antioxidants and Omega 3. The supplement also protects the skin from harmful UV damage through its high antioxidant content, and improves overall health and vitality through its unique blend of proteins, enzymes, antioxidants and Omega 3. This product comes in pill form, coming in convenient daily sachets. While if you are looking to boost your beauty with a supplement that can be taken as a drink, the BEAUTY SHOT will deliver similar benefits to the SKINERGIE supplement, whilst also increasing your body’s ability to create collagen through ingredients such as Marine Collagen and glucosamines. In addition, the drink includes superfruits such as raspberry, blueberry and acai berries to help build up your skin’s defence from aging and stress.  These are just some of the many benefits that can be experienced from supplementation through the Daniele de Winter products.

Quinoa & Sprouted Snack Bars - PERK!ER

Here at The Amazing Blog, we can get a little greedy and hungry at times. But with summer fast approaching we need to think about keeping our bodies in shape! So you can imagine how happy we were when we came across the new British brand, PERK!ER, and their delicious healthy snacks!

We had the chance to taste their new plant-based Quinoa & Sprouted Snack Bars. All created with a blend of nutritious ingredients and based on the well-known superfoods Quinoa: a natural source of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals, Cacao: known for its antioxidants properties, Chia: to help to get that a glow and boost the brain and Goji Berries: a source of Vitamin A perfect to get healthy-looking skin & immune system. The bars are also rich in antioxidants and omega 3 to save us from our morning or afternoon lull! The range includes four different bars: the Quinoa Bar Cashew, Chia & Pumpkin Seed; Quinoa Bar Cacao & Cashew; Quinoa Bar Goji & Cranberry and the Sprouted Oaty Cranberry & Cashew Bar. Our favourite is the Cacao & Cashew bar (probably due to our addiction to anything chocolatey) but there are all very tasty and will give you a shot of energy to keep you going until the next meal! Suitable for vegetarians & vegans, free from gluten, dairy and wheat, you can now enjoy a snack without guilt. A special mention for the lovely colourful packaging that comes just in time for summer, the perfect addition to our beach bag!

For that reason, we were really excited to discover Marc Ibane’s travel set, which includes a luxury hand-made clutch, a natural tanning spray of 50ml, and a kabuki brush. The brush is included to make the application process of the spray tan easier, especially when applying it to the contours of your face.

Collmar Marine Collagen Beauty and Beauty Cream – Drasanvi

Here at The Amazing Blog, we come across a lot of products that can be applied topically to aid in maintaining skin health and help to maintain a younger complexion. However, we have recently come across Drasanvi who offer a range that includes both an anti-ageing cream and a supplement to deliver the full benefits of marine collagen and more from the inside and out!

The Collmar Beauty Cream is a gentle day and night cream that promises to improve the look and feel of ageing skin. This cream has a very subtle fresh scent making it suitable to be unisex, the main ingredient is well-known for helping decrease the sign of ageing naturally, this is called hydrolysed marine collagen. Collagen has been demonstrated in studies that it is well absorbed by the skin and can successfully increase our own levels that decline as we age, and by using this it will benefit our collagen level.  The Collmar Beauty Cream has multiple elements within the cream that are important to our skin and body, it also contains vitamin c which is another boosting nutrient that helps with our skin, and is also a fundamental element of building block of collagen and by using this you are helping the body to create more of its own collagen.

Other significant ingredients that are included in the cream are hyaluronic acid, which helps keep your skin plump, and primrose oil that contains omega 6 and omega 3 this helps to keep your skin looking glowing and healthy.  However, one more important ingredient here that helps preventing ageing is the delicious fruit pomegranate, it contains high levels of anti-oxidants this vital to help decrease the ageing process. All these useful ingredients aim to help tackle and plump up all of the stubborn unwanted wrinkles. Something that everyone over 35 needs as we all want to age gracefully! More importantly for us, Collmar is a natural product that doesn’t have any harsh chemicals.  They recommend you apply this product using a gentle massage technique on the face, neck and décolletage to achieve the best results.

Whilst using the cream we suggest for further benefits to your beauty regime by using it in tandem with the Collmar Marine Collagen. This is a supplement that comes in powder form, which should be taken daily for a minimum of three months to achieve a beneficial result.  You simply take the supplement with a glass water or juice, whatever you may prefer. Not only does the supplement have the ingredients we have spoken about before, but it also includes other nutrients that boost your health, joint mobility and well being; this includes the starflower oil which helps with the brain and skin function. Along with this, there is beetroot that is known to help purify and reduce the blood of unwanted toxins that contributes to ageing. Also not forgetting the biotin which is another important ingredient that helps look after our appearance, it’s also known as a vitamin B7, helping with your skin and nails and also making sure your hair is looking gorgeous by ensuring it is healthy and thick. We also like the fact that the range is not tested on animals and is paraben free.


As mentioned earlier, we at The Amazing Blog are firm believers in looking after your body from the inside out, and for us this Collmar range is just the perfect beauty regime for faster results, we suggest using together the Collmar Marine Collagen at £26.75 here, and Collmar Beauty Cream at £24.75 here both available now on Amazon, and coming soon on the UK Stores.
