PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner - Jane Iredale

Full and long lashes are our favourite accessory here at The Amazing Blog, whether you're foregoing makeup or glamming up. We especially love when our lashes are lengthened and strengthened and making  our much more mascara long-lasting. That’s why we were delighted when Jane Iredale sent us their Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner.

This multi-purpose product is the perfect way to achieve thick, long and strong lashes. It can be used as a mascara primer, adding measurable thickness and length to the lashes when used under your favourite mascara and helping the mascara to last-longer. Not only are you left with fluttery and flirty lashes, but it also allows you to use less of your mascara, therefore helping your purchase last longer. The second purpose is perhaps our favourite; apply the product to clean lashes before bed for an overnight lash treatment. The Aloe Extract and Vitamin B Complex Factor moisturises the lashes, helping them to grow stronger and healthier. Hydrolysed Wheat Protein aids in thicker growth and with the added bonus of curlier lashes. You can even use this product to condition your eyebrows if you're coveting some bushier brows.

The majority of mascaras slow the growth of the hair follices along your eyelid. This results in scarce lashes that struggle to grow, and is why the Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner is such a beneficial product. What's more, the product is cruelty-free so as your lashes grow, your guilt won't!  If you're still somehow not convinced, think about it this way, you wouldn't skip the conditioner in your hair-wash routine, so why skip it on your eyelashes?

Cocoa Glow - Chocolate Sun

It’s clear that here at The Amazing Blog, we love our fake tanning products. We have featured more than our fair share of our favourites, but we’re always on the lookout for new products that are more natural and better for our bodies.

Cocoa Glow by Chocolate Sun is the very first all-natural organic fake tanning product. Fresh from Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Cocoa Sun contains a skin tinting agent called DHA that’s derived from beets. The all-natural glow develops five to seven hours after application and lasts seven to ten days. The ultra-moisturising formulation includes ingredients like aloe, coconut oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil, blended with potent antioxidants from green tea and cocoa bean extracts. To use, first exfoliate the skin and then apply the deliciously cocoa-scented product in circular motions while avoiding tricky bits like knees and ankles. Just wash your hands afterwards to prevent sun tan hands, and you’ll be good to glow!

Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice and Gel

Here at The Amazing Blog  we are very impressed with the  Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice and Gel. Along with their patent pending Aloesorb technology, this aloe juice packs a seriously healthy punch with some of the highest molecular weighted polysaccharides (carbohydrates), which translates to a better quality of aloe juice for your body.

Aloe Vera was known as the plant of immortality by the Egyptians over 6,000 years ago and now thanks to Lily of the Desert we are able to have top notch Aloe Vera Juice and Gel to add to our smoothies and cocktails or to have alone. The juice and the gel both have a slightly sweet taste that is lovely on its own and will blend seamlessly into any drink or cocktail you might add it to.

The Aloe Vera Juice and Gel has tons of uses and we love a product that is multipurpose and healthy at the same time. Aloe Vera Juice and Gel are good for the skin, good internally, as well as good for overall health and wellness. Check out some of the delicious drink recipes here. We particularly love the Watermelon Ginger spritzer recipe:

2 ounces Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice

4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed

2 inches fresh ginger, peeled

agave nectar, to taste

chilled seltzer water

Directions: (Serves 4) Blend watermelon and ginger; strain pulp out. Mix with Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera juice and pour over ice. Top with chilled seltzer water and enjoy!
