At The Amazing Blog we like to take great care of our hair as such, we love discovering new products designed to help us have healthy, shiny and flawless hair. AA skincare a body and hair care brand recently launched their shampoo bars for all types of hair. Some of the products from the range include an almond shampoo bar, an intense coconut bar and the twilight shampoo bar. At The Amazing Blog, we were lucky enough to try the Zing Fresh and the Botanical Boost Shampoo bars.

The Botanical Boost shampoo is made to suit all hair types and provide them with the care they need. Formulated with various essential oils and natural ingredients this shampoo hydrates hair and gently cleanses the scalp. The Shampoo bar is enriched with frankincense oil and avocado oil, and together they act as hair growth stimulator while calming scalp irritation. In addition to the frankincense and avocado oils, the Botanical Boost is infused with argan oil, rose oil, rose geranium oil, coconut oil and sweet almond oil making it a highly nourishing shampoo that protects hair and gives them a new life and radiance.

If you enjoy a little dose of freshness, the Zing Fresh Shampoo bar is just what you need.  Essentially formulated for oily, dry or damaged hair this shampoo enriched with peppermint essential oil and coconut oil rejuvenates hair and leaves them moisturised and silky smooth. While coconut oil deeply nourishes hair peppermint on the other side deeply cleanses the scalp, refreshes hair and helps control oil excess. The fresh and minty scent of the product is both pleasant and invigorating.     

Both bars are paraben free and are easily portable and travel-friendly.

You can purchase the Botanical Boost here for £5.94 and the Zing Fresh here for £5.94.

Ylang Ylang, Argan & Rosemary Shampoo and Conditioner by AA Skincare from Amphora Aromatics

It is no secret that The Amazing Blog holds natural beauty products above all others. Amphora Aromatic's natural skincare range, AA Skincare, has come out with new plant inspired natural shampoos, which have obviously caught our eye. With six new shampoo and conditioner sets to chose from we decided to put their Ylang Ylang, Argan & Rosemary Conditioning shampoo and conditioner to the test. It's worth noting that the conditioner is vegan, however the shampoo contains honey so is only suitable for vegetarians.

The first thing to say is that this product smells utterly amazing. The delicate but fragrant notes of the Ylang Ylang are the first thing to wash over you and instantly made us feel like we were at the spa. Asides from it's delightful scent, the Ylang Ylang essential oil in the product helps to promote a healthy scalp by nourishing and repairing brittle hair. The cucumber extract soothes the scalp and leaves hair feeling silky and soft. Yet, it is the rosemary extract that is the hero ingredient as it actually encourages hair growth and adds volume. The reviving conditioner is the perfect way to finish your hair wash as it is filled with argan oil, promising to leave your hair looking shiny and healthy.

That's why the Ylang Ylang, Argan & Rosemary range is ideal for dry hair, as the ingredients are moisturising and nourishing. If your hair concerns are elsewhere, their Amla & Clary Sage range soothes scalp irritations, the Cedarwood & Peppermint is deep cleansing for oily hair, the Peony, Bay & Brahmi is nourishing and soothing, the Rose & Pomegranate range is 'ultra-gentle', and the Rosemary, Sage & Burdock repairs damaged hair.

The shampoo is available here and the conditioner here, both for £5.94 each.

Deodorant Feature - Friday Favourites

We at The Amazing Blog know how important it is to stay fresh while living our busy and sometimes hectic lives. Whether we are running daily errands, going to the gym or travelling; we all want to feel protected from unpleasant odours. We also love discovering new brands that do natural and organic products that are vegan friendly, not tested on animals and that are free from nasty chemicals that harm our health.  That’s why we tried and tested three great brands that offered us just what we were looking for. 

Green People were one of the first brands we tried and fell in love with. Their paraben free Quinoa & Prebiotics Deodorant is 89% organic and non-irritating, so what’s not to love? It also effectively controls odours and doesn’t contain pore-clogging aluminium. You should also expect this ultra-gentle roll-on deodorant to deliver more than just supreme protection: skin-loving ingredients like Rosemary and Shea butter soothe and calm the underarm, prevent irritation and regulate the skin’s acid balance. Skin is left soothed, softened and refreshingly scented with a pleasant citrus formula. Green People Quinoa & Prebiotics deodorant is available for £9.50 on their website.

When AA Skincare launched their new fresh-smelling trio of deodorants we were happy to try them out since they promised to give day-long protection. Not only did this effective trio deliver long lasting protection, they also allowed our skin to breathe as the ingredients used contain pure deodorising essential oils and natural extracts. The deodorants come in Grapefruit & Cedarwood, Lemongrass & Lavender, and Bergamot & Aloe, so you can choose your favourite one. These naturally effective deodorants won’t block your pores or irritate your skin and they contain no aluminium salts, alcohol or artificial fragrances.  Packed in handy glass roll-on containers to ensure no wastage, the range is competitively priced at just £4.95 and is available online here.

With no testing on animals and made from wholly natural ingredients, this product is not only good for your skin but also for your conscience!
