Bare Faced Skin – Face Revival Cream

BLOG FINAL PICTURE.jpg

 

We know from experience how sensitive skin can be, especially on the face. This is why we were happy to discover Bare Faced Skin, a high-performance, luxury skincare brand, with a range made from organic botanical ingredients. Bare Faced Skin was created by Helen Taylor, who has sensitive skin and has suffered from eczema herself. Helen's brand statement is: "The range was designed to create skin you'll be confident in; skin you want to be seen.” At The Amazing Blog we're all about finding and inspiring self-confidence. Having a clear complexion is a magnificent start and a boost for anyone. What we love is that Bare Faced Skin do not test on animals, and that the products have no hidden ingredients. It seems we're not the only ones impressed by the brand, as Bare Faced Skin were nominated in both the Face Care (Take Off) and Bodycare (Leave On) categories at the 2018 Free From Skincare Awards. To see a full breakdown of their ingredients, click here.

We’ve found that their Balance Shea & Thistle Face Revival Cream is excellent for normal to combination skin due to the hyaluronic acid and lupine peptides it contains. Together, they help to protect, while leaving you with a bright complexion. This winner of a 2018 Beauty Shortlist Award for Editor’s Choice contains shea butter, thistle seed oil, lavender oil, blood orange peel oil, rosehip oil, sweet almond oil, pomegranate seed oil, black seed oil, and sea buckthorn. This combination results in a sweet floral fragrance, highlighted by the lavender and blood orange oils. Palmarosa essential oil is also added to balance the T-Zone. The Face Revival Cream is light on the skin and absorbs quickly to work its hydrating magic. You can purchase Bare Faced Skin’s Balance Shea & Thistle Face Revival Cream 50ml for £48.00 here.

We also had the opportunity to try Bare Faced Skin’s 15ml travel sized creams. This is a premium brand, so it’s nice to be able to try their face and body lotions in their affordable travel sizes. The big plus is that they can fit into any plastic carry-on bag. The Hydrate Sea & Macadamia Face Revival Cream is lightweight and lovely for skin that is lacking moisture and nourishment. The list of ingredients is as follows: shea butter, white poppy oil, rosehip fruit oil, black seed oil, blood orange peel oil, mandarin oil, and sea buckthorn oil.

Fantastic for refining and mattifying the complexion, the Mattify Sea & White Poppy Face Revival Cream moisturises and nourishes the skin. This face cream contains thistle, shea butter, white poppy seed oil, grapefruit peel oil, cardamom seed oil, sweet almond oil, and sea buckthorn fruit extract. The Lift Pumpkin & Borage Body Lotion contains borage oil to protect the skin from external elements, while the pumpkin seed oil soothes. It's excellent for tired-looking skin. This body lotion also contains sweet almond oil, shea butter, sea buckthorn fruit extract, thistle seed oil, and pomegranate seed oil. Enticed by the lovely ingredients? Each of these lovely travel sized creams can be purchased for £14.50 here.

Here at The Amazing Blog, we know how important it is to have a bright white smile. Unfortunately, we don’t all have the time or funds for professional teeth whitening. However, we have found the next best thing, the Nano Intensive Whitening Kit by Whitewash Laboratories. As well as an Intensive Whitening Kit we also received Nano’s Whitening Toothpaste and Premium Whitening Toothbrush, and it’s safe to say we’re obsessed.

The products are designed by UK dentists and are clinically proven to be safe and effective, so you don’t have to worry about your teeth feeling sensitive afterwards unlike most teeth whitening kits. The kit contains 28 Intensive Whitening Strips (14 sets of 2) which can be used as a 2-week course, or as needed as a quick fix to top up your smile. The strips come in a fresh mint flavour and are formulated with a unique oxidising whitening ingredient; they’re completely safe on enamel and whiten teeth by 3.6 shades after just 1 application. The kit also contains 2 Intensive Whitening Gel Syringes and 2 Boil and Bite Mouth Trays; the gel was developed by dentists to be effective and easy to use. You simply mould the mouth trays to fit the shape of your mouth, line the trays with the Intensive Whitening Gel, place in your mouth for 35 minutes, rinse and voila! A bright, white Hollywood smile.

We also received the Nano Whitening Toothpaste and Toothbrush, which work amazingly in addition to the Intensive Whitening Kit. The toothpaste can be used daily to give your teeth a brightening boost and remove any new surface stains. Designed by UK dentists, the toothpaste contains advanced enamel care technology and Xylitol to help reduce sensitivity and prevent plaque formation. The toothbrush is made of whitening bristle technology which is proven to remove 35% more stains compared to normal bristles. You definitely need to give these Nano Intensive Whitening products a try, our smiles have never looked better!

Exotic Millet Body Polish - Naturally Tribal

 

While Summer seems to be slipping through our fingers and we begin to enter September, all of us at The Amazing Blog are desperately trying to maintain that Summer glow we worked so hard to achieve! Dry and dull skin has the evil power to leave you feeling insecure and unattractive. So we were naturally thrilled when we got our hands on Naturally Tribal's superbly hydrating Exotic Millet Body Scrub.

This product is perfect for firming and repairing damaged and dehydrated skin. The shea butter in the product acts as a moisturising base that protects skin from UV light, acts as an anti-inflammatory and manages blemishes such as acne, wrinkles, sunburn, and eczema. Meanwhile, the millet serves as an effective exfoliant to remove dead skin helping to brighten and refresh dull complexions. Millets, both whole, and ground, contain amino acids which help your skin maintain its elasticity.

Made with 100% natural ingredients this product will leave your skin looking brighter and feeling softer. You can purchase your own Body Polish here for £23.99

Chocolate Treats- Gnaw Chocolate

Here at The Amazing Blog, we are certainly partial to an afternoon tea break, and when a hamper full of Gnaw Chocolate goodies came our way, we were thrilled to try them.

Gnaw’s chocolate mission is to bring back the fun with chocolate. Since when did receiving chocolate as a present become so bland? We love that Gnaw Chocolates made us feel young and excited about treats again. The indulgent selection they sent us included their mini bars, big bars, hot chocolates and buttons. We thought the mini bars were a great idea for taking on the go - they come in a 5 or 10 pack which you can customise, choosing from their 5 different flavours. Our favourite had to be the Peanut Butter, closely followed by Salted Caramel.

The big bars are the ultimate chocolate hit, and we tried the Rocky Road, Banana, Mint and Dark Chocolate. The flavours are all delicious and the packaging is creative yet sleek - perfect for all ages. Their buttons were tasty treats that are deviously more-ish, and the Mixed Chocolate and the Caramel Bags are the perfect size for sharing (if you want to). Gnaw haven’t stopped at food however - they have also created a Hot Choc Shot, which looks like a chocolate lollypop. If you place the stick into hot water it melts to form a rich hot chocolate. Gnaw Chocolate is lovingly hand-crafted in Norfolk, using locally sourced ingredients and natural flavours.

Whether you need a last minute gift idea or are an avid chocolate lover, Gnaw Chocolate can be purchased online here. Their products start at £7.50.

 

Bronzing Ball - Madame La La

At the Amazing Blog we are fans of the bronzed look, and that’s why we were really excited to try the new Bronzing Ball from Madame La La.

What we like the most about this product is how easy it is to apply on to your face. The 180° dome applicator and its creamy texture allows you to effortlessly glide the ball along all the places where the sun would normally hit your skin.  This way, you won't need make-up brushes to bronze, contour, strobe or highlight your face, just use your fingertips to blend in the product. The Bronzing Ball also is the ideal travel size to carry around with you, so perfect for whenever you feel like adding a little touch of the 'LA glow' to your look.

This vegan multi-tasking bronzer will not dry your skin out as sometimes happens with other bronzing powders. Your skin will feel hydrated and smooth when using it. This is due to its formula infused with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects and repairs dry skin, and coco water, known for its hydrating and moisturising properties. As for the colour, you can build it up depending on the shade of sunkissed tan that you wish to achieve.

For your Bronzing Ball at £14.00, see here to get that special holiday bronzed glow.
