Friday Favourites: Natural Body & Face Oils

January is the time of the year when we recover from the many excesses that happened during the festive season when our skin is perhaps not at it's best. Then add the effects cold weather or central heating and our complexions become dehydrated and flakey. At The Amazing Blog, we have come up with a few suggestions for natural body and face oils that will provide just what you need for extra nourishment with their plant extracts, vitamins and superfoods.



Anti-cellulite products are often not worth the cash you spend on them. We’ve spent too many hours in search of an efficient way to get rid of the cellulite blight; if only we had come across the Kypwell brand earlier.

The emulsion of Kypwell’s Anti-Cellulite and Firming Body Emulsion contains natural high-tech ingredients that helps to provide a fat burning effect. The unique combination of plants extracts primarily from their native Cyprus provide the key ingredients; namely heart-leaved globe daisy and bitter ginger enhanced with essential oils including lemon, orange and grapefruit oils. These all work to smooth the cellulite bumps while also firming skin. Combine this with their delicious zesty KypSlim organic herbal tea and your regular exercise regime and we think it'll work wonders to get you back in shape in no time! The Kypwell emulsion is for all skin types and works best by being applied to specific body areas once or twice daily. You can purchase the Anti-Cellulite and Firming Body Emulsion, using PayPal, here for around £53.42.

We couldn’t have a post discussing body oils and emulsions without mentioning one of our favourite brands and also a Beauty Shortlist Winner, Bodhi & Birch. Bodhi & Birch is an independent, eco-luxury, British skincare brand that creates products inspired by aromatherapy and botanical remedies.
