Friday Favourites - Touché by Flavien

We at the Amazing Blog have tried our fair share of anti-ageing products. We particularly rate some of the collagen supplements which we have experimented with recently. And we still have a plethora of anti-ageing products that we are gradually working our way through. However, there is one company that always seems to stand out for us. In fact, our Executive Editor just can’t get enough of Touché by Flavien and the products that this company send us. This time around we are focusing on their luxurious skincare.

The initial product we tried was the Rejuvenating Eye Cream. And what good is the perfect anti-ageing product if you can’t see the results? Thanks to the special ingredient of Lichens, sourced 2500 meters below sea level, the product is extra rich in anti-oxidants. The cream also contains the signature exclusive Prickly Pear Oil, which we have discussed in our previous post on Touché by Flavien’s BodycareThe product ingredient here is the Konjac Powder, a plant derivative from an Asian potato, that is loaded with protein, copper, zinc, phosphorus and more. With this ingredient, you will never have to worry about those nasty dark circles underneath your eyes or crows feet. If your eye areas feel a little lacklustre, you can purchase the Rejuvenating Eye Cream here for £79.00 for 15ml

Next, we’d like to focus on the entire face with the Rejuvenating Face Serum. Like the eye cream, this serum also contains the special ingredient of Konjac Powder. However, it also contains its own unique ingredients, including Moringa Oil and Progeline. Moringa Oil has been revered as one of the world’s most nutrient dense oils and has amazing rejuvenating properties. Recently, current technology has given us Progeline, which not only tackles wrinkles, but also remodels and improves texture and tone. Even if this product was designed to use on the face, we, along with others, have found that you can actually apply it on your chest, shoulders and neck as well.  Unlike your average anti-ageing moisturiser, this product truly replenishes every layer of your skin, rather than just moisturising the top. Say good-bye to sagging skin and purchase the Rejuvenating Face Serum here for £170.00 for 30ml

Finally, we would like to tell you about the Cell Regeneration Moisturiser. This moisturiser contains a very special ingredient: Lotus Root Liposome. It is the only known plant to live in all three elements at the same time: earth, water and air. Can you say that about any of the anti-ageing products that you’ve tried? We promise that this moisturiser will not only hydrate your skin, but it will also balance your skin tones, complexion and the overall colouring of your skin. It’s time to breathe new life into your skin by purchasing the Cell Regeneration Moisturiser here for £89.00 for 50ml.

The quality of all of these products is just absolutely top notch. Not only do they have some of best the ingredients and the performance that we’ve tried, but they’re also boxed up in extremely chic black and gold packaging. Touché by Flavien also very generously sent us other skincare products, which we tried and loved just as much as we usually do. Instead of revealing all of the utterly unique and elite ingredients, we suggest you try them yourself. Take a look at the company’s entire skincare line and you will never have to worry about looking your age again. Thank you, Touché by Flavien

Adigym Endurance Exercise Cream

The Amazing Blog staff members love staying healthy and exercising. Adigym respects the desire to live a healthy lifestyle, and sent us samples of their newest body firming cream to give us some extra motivation.

Adigym is a body cream that provides the same body-toning effects as those gained through endurance exercises. The product contains a newly discovered formula called actigym, which contains a Bermudan marine plankton extract that is scientifically proven to regulate the production of type 1 muscle fibres. Type 1 Muscle fibres are often gained from swimming, running or cycling. They assist in reducing fat uptake, which results in a tighter and more toned appearance.

Still feeling skeptical? A trial on 60 women ages 35-50 reaped amazing results. The average participant lost 3 c.m. on the waist, 2.9 c.m. on the upper thighs and 2.4 c.m. on the upper arms. The general body weight loss of the women using the product was 4kg, which we find incredible! Additionally, Fran Newman-Young of “Made in Chelsea” uses the product, and she has time and time again reassured the public that it is effective.

When combined with a healthy lifestyle of moderate exercise and a generally healthy diet, Adigym can act as the perfect finishing touch to helping you get the weight loss look you desire. Thanks to this product, we are feeling more fit than ever! Adigym Endurance Exercise Formula costs £24.95 (150ml) and is available here

Resultime - Eye Perfector Serum

How do celebrities do it? They tweet that they have been up since 4 a.m. and yet when you see their pictures online, they look wide awake. It’s hardly fair on us mere mortals, which is why we at The Amazing Blog have worked hard to discover their secret. Say good morning to the Resultime Eye Perfector Serum.

This multi-action serum smoothes, revives and illuminates the eye contour area. The combination of Vectorised Micro-Collagen, Seaweed Extract, and Vitamin C promotes cell renewal and micro-circulation, reduces skin pigmentation and puffiness, as well as strengthening the delicate skin around your eyes.

You know that gorgeous woman married to Justin Timberlake? She uses this product, as well as Pixie Lott and Michelle Keegan. In fact, many celebrity make-up artists use this serum on their clients because it has been known to reduce puffiness for 83% of its users. I love using the serum in the morning because it gets rid of my puffy eyes, and although I have yet to see any ‘illuminating effects,’ I’m hoping to see a difference the longer I use it. It feels so soothing and my make-up applies easily over it, so it's definitely become a staple in my skincare regime.

You can purchase the Eye Perfector Serum for £30 here. It's suitable for all skin types and can be applied in the morning and/or evening. So say goodbye to tired eyes and look refreshed all day long.

Botanicals - Lemongrass & Mandarin Body Lotion

Here at The Amazing Blog, we believe that nature really does know best, which is why we are always advocating products with natural ingredients. Botanicals Lemongrass & Mandarin Revitalising Body Lotion not only contains 100% natural ingredients, but also does wonders for your skin, leaving it feeling soft and silky in a natural way.

After reading about the various setbacks of using chemicals and artificial preservatives in beauty products, Botanicals vowed to never take that kind of risk with peoples’ bodies. Every product they sell is perfectly safe to use, and cares for your skin in a natural way. The pure and organic Revitalising Body Lotion contains Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Aloe Vera, Green Tea Extract and Lemongrass & Mandarin essential oils that combine to support the skin’s natural elasticity, replenish essential moisture and soften and smooth skin. After using the lotion, my skin definitely felt more hydrated and wonderfully soft, and it was a comfort to know that I wasn't slathering chemical laden products onto my body.

If you’re tired of taking unhealthy risks with your body, purchase the Revitalising Body Lotion here for £21.95. We certainly appreciated this guilt free way to achieving supple, heavenly skin.


Mr Filbert's Mixed Nuts and Seeds

Recently, we at The Amazing Blog have been struggling to find a snack that will please our tummies and our taste buds. Unfortunately, we often give in to temptation and reach for sweets. However, once Mr. Filbert’s sent us samples of their mixed nuts and tasty seeds, our snack time stress was resolved.

Mr. Filbert’s brand values healthy choices and tasty alternatives to the stereotypical sweet snack. The brand is very excited to announce their new range of Pocket Roasted Mixed Nuts and seeds. The nut mixtures offered are Honey & Peppercorn, Chilli & Fennel and Sea Salt & Herb. If you prefer seeds over nuts, the company also has Chilli, Herb, and Honey Roasted seed selections.

Mr. Filbert’s generously sent us their Honey & Peppercorn and Sea Salt & Herb mixed nuts, along with their Chilli & Fennel seeds. Due to the size of these tiny packages, we were initially skeptical that the snacks would keep us full until the end of the day. After trying the nuts and seeds, we were pleasantly surprised that the amount was the perfect little snack after we had enjoyed our lunches, and the snacks kept each of us full until dinner time. Whether you want your own or choose to share, these products are healthy, filling, and pleasantly delicious!

Mr Filbert's new nut and seed selection is available from Waitrose and independent delis and farm shops across the country for £1.50. For more information  about this tasty snack, visit their website.
