To The Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner - Noughty

blog image copy.jpg

Here at The Amazing Blog, we understand the struggle to attain frizz free hair. We have time and time again spent our hard earned money on some hair alchemy that gurentees to free our locks from their frizz induced prison, only to be left diappointed. Yet, we haven't given up this quest, for which we are glad as we have just come across Noughtya company dedicated to creating an all natural range of hair care products that help to reduce friss and tame the untameable. 


We tried Noughty’s To The Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner, and it was as if a prince on a white horse rode straight into the house. Made from 97% natural ingredients, the products are free from petrochemicals, parabens, sulphates and silicones. This is a seriously good shampoo and conditioner from a company that doesn’t take itself too seriously. We love the light hearted and jokey vibe that the brand has; in fact when discussing how all the products they make are cruelty-free, they write “we don’t believe in testing our ingredients on Bambi, Lassie or Skippy.” Meaning that not only will your hair be left looking smooth and beautiful but you will be left feeling guilt free.


Because of the blend of natural ingredients, including sweet almond oil, coconut oil, olive oil, Shea butter and blue mallow flower, our hair was left feeling and looking shinier, healthier and smoother. Our split ends were reduced, and hair felt calmer and more under control. What's more the products are bursting with a sublime fruit and coconut scent, that is as refreshing as it is fragrant. 


You can purchase Noughty’s To The Rescue Shampoo here for £6.99 and their Conditioner here for £6.99

 

Home Fragrances – Scent Elite, Maiden, Orla Kieley, Miller Harris

 

There’s something about a fragrance that gives a home a sense of identity, and here at The Amazing Blog we have selected a few products to give your home the beautiful scent it deserves. From candles to reed diffusers, there's an option for everyone. 

ScentElite has been living up to its name with their range of luxurious Reed Diffusers, packaged in stunning handmade boxes and wrapped in mauve tissue paper.

Once opened the glass diffuser with its crisp white fibre reeds, makes an opulent addition to any room. We had the opportunity to try The Tea diffuser; the liquid is similar to the colour of a Peridot gem and the scent is warm and floral with a hint of citrus. ScentElite uses 100% pure essential oils and top quality perfume concentrates. They use 8 reed diffusers to keep the scent working for up to 8 weeks - you definitely get your money’s worth! We loved the beautiful packaging and care that evidently went into these diffusers, but the crowning glory of the product was without a doubt the scent. If you fancy a coming home to a warm floral scent order yours here now for £23.

If candles are more your style, we've found a unique alternative to your regular scented candles. Maiden Dorset have created the Curve Candle; that’s right, a handmade curved scented candle.

We were lucky enough to try the Butterfly Lace, which is overlaid with beautiful wax lace and finished with a handmade wax butterfly. All of the candles at Maiden Dorset are handmade and can  be used in two different ways to create different ambiances. For an subtle glow, place a tea light behind the curve of the candle to highlight the intricate carvings on the candle, or simply light the three wicks at the top of the candle for a more traditional look.  The candles come in a variety of scents, we in particular loved the soft English Rose, and can be bought from Maiden Dorset's website here for £28.

For those who prefer more vibrant home fragrances, we love Orla Kiely's Sicilian Lemon Scented Candle to give your home a bright, zesty feel.

This is one for all the citrus lovers out there; it’s a striking candle that will certainly bright up any home with its scent and detailed glass holder. The candle is a blend of uplifting pure oils; Sicilian lemon, mint and lavender, with a warm hint of frankincense. We found that the scent reminded us of a rich and creamy lemon cheesecake, yummy! The glass case is sturdy and detailed with climbing yellow daisies in a futuristic design - it would make a great addition to a room in need of some colour. We loved the rich lemon scent, the thoughtful addition of a heat mat, and how long lasting the product is (it burns for up to 50 hours). Want a candle that smells good enough to eat? Pick yours up here for £25.

It seems that winter is truly upon us, and with it the distant memories of Pina Coladas and the palm trees of summer. Never fear though, Miller Harris has created the beautiful La Pluie candle, inspired by the tropical climate of Mauritius, to bring a little bit of sunshine back into your living room during these dull, dreary winter months. 

We loved the gorgeous combination of tangerine, lavender, cassis, ylang ylang and jasmine which will make you feel as if your lying on a beach in no time! Each scent complements to other to create a soft but intense fragrance that leaves your room feeling like a tropical paradise. If you want to bring some warmth and exoticism to your home, get your own candle here for £40.00.

Botanicals Face Balm

 

Here at The Amazing Blog, we often feel that our skin deserves some rejuvenation as winter chapping starts to set in. Botanicals have created our go-to product to give our face some extra TLC, the Nourishing Face Balm is a luxurious, indulgent and multi-purpose treatment.

The award-winning balm is designed to enhance skin’s texture, in order words you should wake up in the morning with baby soft skin. This is the perfect burst of hydration for dry skin and would even work as an after-sun. The key ingredients of this handmade treatment are shea butter, jojoba oil, wild rose and green tea extracts to name a few. All of which provide a deep conditioning with a beautiful rose infused scent, we loved lathering the balm on at night as the fragrance soothed us into a relaxed sleep. The natural oils balance even oily skin and work with the natural processes of skin rejuvenation rather than against it.

We can’t get enough of our super soft skin! A little goes a long way, one pot will keep you refreshed and radiant for a good while. Reveal the English Rose in you with this UK Handmade face balm, available here for £27.95.

The English Mineral Makeup Company - Mineral Foundation

When it comes to make-up, we always favour a flawless finish here at The Amazing Blog. However, we never like to look caked in foundation. So when The English Mineral Makeup Company  sent over their Mineral Foundation for us to try, we were happy to let our skin breathe whilst giving ourselves comfortable coverage.

 

One thing we found seriously impressive about the brand is the sheer range of colours to choose from. With 30 shades to choose from, whether you’re porcelain or ebony, their foundation shades literally have you covered. It’s so refreshing to find a brand that cater to every skin colour. The lightweight powder provides a decent amount of coverage, and buffs easily into the skin when using the brands super soft kabuki brush. Lasting all day, the foundation is also 100% vegan and 100% pure mineral, so it’s really pure enough to sleep in. Great for those who are environment conscious, or simply for those looking for a soft focus foundation, The English Mineral Makeup Company is certainly worth checking out.

 

Perfect your skin the natural way with The English Mineral Makeup Company. You can buy the Mineral Foundation here for £37. 

Docteur Renaud's Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream

Here at The Amazing Blog, we understand that as we age, our skin unfortunately ages as well. As you age, you may begin to notice wrinkles, your pores becoming more visible, or your skin losing its shine. Thanks to Docteur Renaud’s new Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream, you can reduce these pesky ageing effects and go back to looking like a younger version of you. 

Docteur Renaud uses Iris for all of its age defying formulations because of its ability to strengthen the skin. The anti-ageing properties of Iris limit the breakdown of protein and collagen while maintaining the quality of the membrane between the dermis and epidermis. Maintaining the membrane restores the firmness and tone of the skin, reducing fine lines and decreasing wrinkle depth.

The Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream provides complete anti-ageing care, tackling all the signs of ageing by bringing together three Iris extracts. The combination of the Iris Cell Extract, Iris Polyphenols and Organic Iris combat fine lines and wrinkles, restore firmness and elasticity to the skin, reduce visible pores, and deliver a radiance-boosting effect. Pistachio Tree Resin, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oils, Hyaluronic Acid, and Docteur Renaud’s Phyto-Oxygenating complex also help provide a boost of radiance to the skin, while moisturising and strengthening it as well.   

After using the product, 96% of 22 women interviewed said their skin felt smoother, firmer and more plumped up. We couldn't agree more!

Created for normal to combination skin types, the light cream will melt effortlessly into the skin, leaving it looking younger and feeling silky soft. For the best results, apply the Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream morning and evening on the face and neck area.

Docteur Renaud Iris Lift Pore-Reducing Gel-Cream is available here at £44.00 for 50 ml.
