Face Cream

Queen of the Hive Face Cream

No doubt everyone has heard of, or participated in, the contour craze that recently took over the beauty world. Just when we thought that contouring was reserved purely for our make-up kits, here at The Amazing Blog we discovered that Wedderspoon have created a Face Contour Cream as part of their Queen of the Hive Organic Skincare range. The cream is designed to firm and plump your skin to accentuate the natural contours of the face, highlighting these natural contours without the need for make-up.

The essential components of the cream are Manuka Honey for nourishment and intense hydration of the skin, and Bee Venom, which is extracted humanely, to increase blood flow and stimulate collagen production to keep skin firm. Wedderspoon make the quality of their ingredients a top priority, ensuring that they are from either organic or natural sources

The packaging fits with their natural theme, the lid being made from wood, with the stylish glass pot displaying the neutral / natural coloured cream. It looks clean, chic and high quality. We loved the sweet, fragrant scent (vaguely reminiscent of Turkish delight) and how the cream soaked into the skin quickly and left it extremely soft to the touch. We experienced no skin irritation, but obviously those with bee venom allergies should not use this product.

Pure and Light Organic Creams

Here at The Amazing Blog we believe that truly natural products are the best for our skin, while on the hunt we came across Pure and Light Organics. We were lucky enough to try the Essential Face Cream and the Loving Mother and Baby Cream. Pure and Light believe that great skincare comes with simplicity, a philosophy that translates into their all natural ingredients. Interestingly the brand finds inspiration from ancient knowledge of herbal medicine and aromatherapy, balanced alongside information technology of homeopathy.

The Essential Face Cream uses shea butter, to give it a creamy texture, along with organic oils of rosehip, grapeseed, borage, argan, macadamia and avocado to name a few. All of these oils contain vital anti-oxidants and vitamins that our skin craves; it balances, hydrates and revitalizes our skin. We loved how smooth the formula felt and the hint of orange blossom in the scent, after a few uses our skin felt deeply nourished and smelled fantastic. Take the time to massage it into the skin making sure to push up; this is a way to stimulate the collagen in your face as well as providing a peaceful and relaxing end to the day. It is recommended for all skin types and for any skin conditions, so get yours here for £29.

Mothers often have concerns regarding the products they are using both on themselves and their babies. These worries can disappear thanks to Pure and Light Organic’s Gentle Body and Face Cleanser and the Soothing Barrier Cream, both of which are part of the Mother & Baby range; it is specifically designed for safe use on mother and baby’s sensitive skin. The wash contains a combination of 8 active totally natural ingredients, these include lavender, calendula, and marshmallow root. The result is a sulphate free wash that soothes, encourages much needed relaxation for both mother and baby, as well as keeping their skin soft and thoroughly cleansed. We loved the potent lavender scent that takes over the senses to ensure a state of serenity

The cream contains 18 active ingredients including chamomile, yarrow, marshmallow root and silica. All of which are gentle on the skin yet still powerful enough to deal with irritation and dryness, the chamomile is calming, balancing and works as an anti-inflammatory. This is a multipurpose cream that can be used on multiple skin issues, even on babies from 3 months and onwards. We found the cream was extremely hydrating, absorbed quickly and left our skin feeling extremely soft. If you’re a new or expectant mother make sure you order yours here for £18.

EE's Cosmetics Carrot and Cranberry Face Cream


Our fellow readers of The Amazing Blog may already know that we love all things organic and packed with goodness. Preservatives and harsh chemicals can be found in approximately 75-90 % of cosmetics such as make-up, lotion, deodorants and shampoos etc... these are absorbed by the skin and dispersed throughout the body by the bloodstream - leading in some cases to a disruption of the body's hormonal balance or even to breast cancer. At The Amazing Blog, we encourage our readers to invest in natural products, as the benefits are noticeable in the long run. Today's post is on EE's Cosmetics' Carrot and Cranberry Face Cream, The Amazing Blog's best kept secret.
