Percy & Reed - Wonder Balm


Here at The Amazing Blog, we’re big fans of multi-tasking products, since they save us precious time and valuable money. When it comes to our beauty routine, time is essential, since we need to apply our makeup and style our hair accordingly before the work day begins and we’re rushing around our flat looking for our keys. Thankfully, we have the Wonder Balm from Percy & Reed to give our hair body, volume, moisture and protection, whatever the day has in store for us.

They haven’t named this product a “wonder” balm for kicks; it contains plenty of hair-loving benefits and ingredients combined perfectly to give you the style your heart desires. A few of the many perks inside of the adorable packaging include manageability, humidity protection, shine and softness. The contemporary and girly design of the bottle and packaging are beautiful finishing touches.

The Wonder Balm works best when used on towel-dried hair before styling, working from roots to ends. You can use it alone or along with your other favourite styling products, since it is such a versatile balm. It can also be used on dry hair as needed for extra definition and smoothness.

Ready for your hair to shine its brightest and look its fullest? Grab your own bottle of Wonder Balm here for £18 and go from drab to fab instantly.  

Nano-b - Silver Toothbrush

Here at The Amazing Blog, we were shocked when we learned that the average toothbrush is home to more than 10 million bacteria (including E.coli, staphylococci, and even fecal germs). What’s worse is that 98% of toothbrushes have bristles with sharp edges due to the way they are cut during the manufacturing process. With the sharp bristles you can cause numerous micro-cuts every time you brush your teeth, letting all this nasty bacteria into your gums and causing infections. So we went searching for a solution and were pleased to find Nano-B had exactly what we were looking for.

This Nano-B Silver Toothbrush has 99.9% pure silver impregnated into its 1,600 bristles to inhibit bacteria growth. The bristles are also scientifically rounded to reduce gum inflammation and bleeding. The main purpose of a toothbrush is to clean and, with its clever double layered bristle design, it cleans those really hard to reach places giving you a beautiful, healthy smile.

Needless to say, we’re converted. If you’re interested in having your cleanest smile ever, you can pick up your own Nano-B toothbrush for just £7.99 here.

Summer has landed, and along with it BUGS!! Here at The Amazing Blog we’re loving Simply Soothing’s Bug Soother, to help keep those bugs at bay!

Made with a blend of lemongrass, vanilla and lemon with 3% scent (4% is the highest level recommended by the manufacturer), it smells great and unlike other bug repellents we love how it leaves no oily residue on your skin after you apply.

It’s also a safe natural product, free from DEET and safe for children and pets – it also qualifies as an EPA exempted product.

A single bottle (100 ml) of Simply Soothing’s Bug Soother can be purchased for £6.99 from their website here.

Living Proof - Prime Style Extender

Just like applying makeup involves a variety of essential steps, our haircare routine requires proper products and tools in order to achieve the perfect look. Our team here at The Amazing Blog recently discovered a new product from Living Proof called the Prime Style Extender, and it gives our hair the moisture and smoothness it craves.

Similarly to how a makeup primer works, the style extender gives hair an ideal foundation for other hair products used in the styling process. Since it feels absolutely weightless, you can layer other hair products without even noticing, while still working hard to maintain your style as the day progresses. A Living Proof patent molecule called OFPMA works to repel dirt and oil from your locks, which in turn allows your hair to stay cleaner for longer, so the need to touch up your hair often is eliminated.

As the name suggests, using this primer will help to extend your hair style twice as long as regular styling products alone, and when we tried it at the office we were happy that it lived up to the hype. We styled our hair one day, didn’t wash it or use hot tools the next, and by the third day it was still looking flawless. We don’t know how Living Proof does it, but we aren’t complaining one bit.

To get your own Prime Style Extender, head here where you can easily purchase it online for £18.
