We love to support indie brands here at The Amazing Blog particularly those that source their ingredients seasonally. This is why we always want to try new products from Fushi. They have just launched a new product: Wild, Cold-Pressed Pomegranate Oil 80%+ sustainably sourced from South Africa utilising the entire Pomegranate fruit making sure it’s free from artificial ingredients and chemicals. What we love about this product is that it’s also food grade too – so can be taken sprinkled liberally not only on your face but on your favourite cereal, salad or smoothies!

Founded by Ria Pattni and Rannesh Jansari, Fushi the brand was created to keep ancient techniques alive. Passed on from Ria’s grandmother, to her mother and then onto her originating mainly from Ayurvedic recipes. The products are composed of natural oils and herbs all hand-blended to create organic, ethical and pure formulas to primarily enhance skin rejuvenation. As mentioned previously in our post on their BioVedid range, Fushi means ‘eternal life’ in Japanese. Their products maintain the essence of natural remedies used in the past, with a modern touch. Fushi not only takes care of your skin but also the planet. They are members of the Ethical Company Organisation workers and suppliers, as well as being a member of the Ethical Company Organisation and the Good Shopping Guide, as well as supporting Fair Trade with their inventions.

The Fushi Wild, Cold-Pressed Pomegranate Oil 80%+ is a new formula rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, linoleic acid, oleic acid and flavonoids that by altering the way it is produced, the punicic acid, better known as Omega 5 has been boosted to over 80%. Increasing Omega 5 has made this oil perfect for anti-ageing, heart health, stronger immunity, and more. It is believed that Fushi has cracked the code and created the first pomegranate oil 80%+ in the market. No one likes greasy or heavy oils, and this is where it scores well as Fushi’s Pomegranate Oil is light and absorbent, making it non-greasy and ideal for mature, normal, damaged and skins. Apart from the topical application, pomegranate oil is high in flavonoids and antioxidants, which makes it a popular dietary supplement. All packaged in amber glass bottles which protect the contents from heat, light, oxidation and moisture. We’re already thinking of ordering another bottle before we run out! Get your 50ml bottle of Wild, Cold-Pressed Pomegranate Oil 80%+ for £20.00 here.

All-In-One Anti Ageing Cream – NCN Professional Skincare

While there are many things that improve with time (like a fine wine), skin is definitely not one of them. Here at The Amazing Blog, we understand what it is like to be dissatisfied with the appearance of our ageing skin. Although many women turn to fillers to remove wrinkles and troublesome spots, there are a few highly effective products you might want to consider before stepping into the clinic.

The All-in-One Anti Ageing Cream by NCN Professional Skincare is a potent blend of peptides, actives, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and oils that can plump, lift, erase fine lines, hydrate, pamper and nourish your skin. For anyone experiencing wrinkles, loss of firmness, or dull skin, this formula is the solution you have been looking for! As an all-in-one product, it can be used entirely on its own in your skincare regimen. Unless you have extremely dehydrated skin, you don’t even need to apply a moisturiser alongside it. Apply it once or twice daily to see a visible improvement in the appearance of your skin.

The All-in-One Anti Ageing Cream is available here for £69.99.

Barefoot SOS – Repair and Renew

edwinas thursday

As many of you know, we here at The Amazing Blog  are always excited for all things anti-ageing!  We love pampering our skin to keep it as youthful as possible.  Our newest find, Barefoot SOS, combines the ‘science of skincare with the natural power of botanical extracts’ to benefit skin. Barefoot SOS has recently launched its Repair and Renew line, which targets fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tones and damaged or scarred skin.

The Barefoot SOS Repair and Renew treatment consists of a 3-step regime to nourish, firm and tone skin using the Intensive Treatment Oil, Daily Replenishing Cream and the Smoothing Eye Serum.  They suggest a routine for applying the treatment, which I have personally found is quick and easy.  In the morning and evening, nourish your skin with the Intensive Treatment Oil by gently rubbing 3-4 drops of the oil into you face.  Once the oil is fully absorbed, apply the Daily Replenishing Cream to firm your skin.  A little of the Daily Replenishing Cream goes a long way, so apply the moisturiser sparingly.  Finally, delicately apply the Smoothing Eye Serum around the eyes to tone those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. As always, to prevent further wrinkling, apply by lightly patting from the outer eyes toward the nose.

The innovative Repair and Renew 3-step treatment includes Rosa Mosqueta, which is packed with essential fatty acids that have anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties. The range also contains Argan Oil that maintains skin elasticity as well as the acid of Evening Primrose to soften and moisturise skin.  The Repair and Renew line is suitable for all skin types but is very beneficial for dry skin.  The Intensive Treatment Oil can be found here for £28.00.  The Daily Replenishing Cream can be found here for £21.00 as well as the Smoothing Eye Serum which can be found here for £21.00.

Bio2You Organic Anti-Aging Serum

blogBio2You is a skincare range that I first discovered in 2011 and as you will see from my blog post  I really fell in love with the Seathorn Antiaging Cream with Hyaluronic Acid moisturiser. So when we at The Amazing Blog were given the opportunity to try out their Organic Antiaging Serum – well as you can imagine, I jumped at it! To be honest this product wasn’t quite what I was expecting… the serum has a very ‘different’ smell.  It is quite ‘yeasty' which is not necessarily a bad thing, just unexpected!  And you can really smell this with the highly concentrated herbs and vitamin B content - which (unlike other serums) is not being disguised by some other artificial fragrances. It has the texture of dry oil and sinks almost instantly into the skin. Quickly added none of this brand’s products contain any alcohol, artificial colouring or parabens.  It has been specifically formulated to help reduce wrinkles by penetrating into the skins dermis to help repair the collagen and retain moisture. There are also other ingredients of Aloe Vera, Fengreek, Organic Hops, Panthenol (ProVitamin B5) and Organic Seabuckthorn oil (this is my favourite ingredient!)

I have been using this as recommended twice daily in conjunction with my current daily moisturiser and night cream – it left my skin pleasantly slightly damp and very soft.  Over a period of 10 days, I have notice that my skin actually did feel more rehydrated.  However, I think for maximum results I would recommend using this in tandem with their fabulous Seathorn Antiaging Cream .For all those natural product enthusiasts like myself, I would definitely recommend Bio2You Organic Antiaging Serum  it is also good for those who have sensitive skin and the ingredients really are vitamin packed ready to perform. At £24  this really isn’t a bad price for an organic antiaging serum that works.

Kelly Edwards Essential Starter Kit

Kelly Edwards At The Amazing Blog we love to make sure our skin is clear and healthy each and every day. With Kelly Edwards new 4 piece skincare essential starter set it is easy to cleanse my skin on a routine basis.  With her selection from normal to slightly dry skin this kit can offer people with different skin types a selection to choose from that will match perfectly.

For the past couple of weeks I have been following the weekly routine that Kelly Edwards suggests using her Essential Starter kit. Using the Cleanser, Toner, and Floral Moisturiser twice a day and exfoliating my skin once a week I have began to notice a difference with my skin. Before I go to sleep every night I use the cleanser to gently remove my make up  and wash my face. Then after clearing the everyday grime from my face I use a dab of the toner to hydrate and refresh my skin.The alcohol free floral scented toner has an added bonus to it, after hydrating your skin it restores the pH of my skin. The last step to my daily routine is to moisturise my face. Using the Floral Moisturiser it nourishes and protects my skin with a blend of rich plant oils, vitamins, and esstential oils that will leave my face and skin refreshed for the following day. While the Floral Moisturiser protects your skin, it also protects against radicals to combat the signs of premature ageing. On Sunday I used a little dab of the exfoliating cream to gentle buff away the dead skin cells and unblock my pores. It's nice to know that all of Kelly Edwards products are natural and do not contain any nasties. With all of her products being handmade in Wales, you know you are getting a great product for an affordable price.

With this easy weekly routine my face is glowing and feeling hydrated throughout the week. I have noticed a difference by using this 4 step process and other’s have too! You can find the Kelly Edwards skincare set on-line for £38. This set includes a 100ml Cleanser, 50 ml Toner, 50 ml Floral Moisturiser, and a 50 ml Exfoliating Cream.
