New Collagen Supplement Drink by Calla-Coll

picture blogpost FINAL.jpg

At The Amazing Blog we believe in the saying: “When you put good in, you get good out," so when we received the new collagen supplement drink Calla-Coll that contains peptides and hyaluronic acid too, we were interested to put it to the test. Skincare professional, Lynne Baker from Calla Salon, has worked hard for the past five years to create this high-potency drink with the help of a specialist lab in Sweden using bovine collagen. 


As we age, our body naturally slows down its production of collagen. Soon enough we begin to see fine lines on our skin and start to feel achy in our joints and that’s when we know we need to take action. Calla-Coll is expertly formulated using the best ingredients to ensure our nails, skin, hair, joints and our overall body is functioning as it should be. The formula is also enriched with essential vitamins C, B5, B6, B7 and B12 and the key ingredient: Type I and Type II bovine collagen, which is sourced from organic, free-range, grass fed and non-GMO cattle in Brazil. Together, these ingredients rejuvenate your body from the inside; giving you the energy you need to work through your busy day. The liquid formula makes it simple to take before you head out the door in comparison to most powder formulas that are difficult to fully mix.


The sweet berry flavour makes it enjoyable to take a shot on its own, but it can always be added to your favourite fruit smoothie. We added it to our banana and vanilla protein drink in the morning. We think that you need to take this supplement for three months before seeing visible results, we only had twenty days supply, although our executive editor did notice a little more mobility in her joints. This supplement comes in a neat 500ml plastic bottle with a separate small measuring cap. All you need is 25ml a day to help keep your body looking and feeling younger. Calla-Coll is available for purchase here for £45.

Always dreamed of having that perfect red carpet hair? Mousse and hairspray are the go-to products that hairstylists recommend to achieve that va-va-voom glam hair look.  At The Amazing Blog, we think it’s time for you to try out this new natural mousse and spray that just might change your regular hair routine.


Eco-Cosmetics’ new Hair Mousse is the epitome of luxe for less. It helps to give your hair more volume and make it more manageable. We know how frustrating it is, the knots just won’t come out and the frizz doesn’t go down. However, this product really makes a difference. Its formulas are enriched with only eco-friendly and organic ingredients. It contains Pomegranate and Goji Berries, Punica Granatum Fruit Water, Linalool, and Coco-Glucoside; all these ingredients are sourced from organic farming, without synthetic dyes, perfumes and preservatives. Regardless of your needs, this natural, quality mousse works on all hair types. We found that it certainly protected, nourished, and strengthen our hair giving it a shiny and silky finish look.  The Eco Cosmetics Hair Mousse is available  here for only £9.95


The second product by Eco Cosmetics is the Hair Spray. We also highly recommend this product for gloss and volume. Like the hair mousse, it contains the same organic and natural ingredients. This Hair Spray will give the hair lift and shine without leaving it sticky. What we particularly like are the pomegranate extracts, these add moisture to ensure that the scalp and hair won't dry out. If you’re looking for that shine for your hair, Eco Cosmetics’ Hair Spray is the answer.  Grab this new product here for £9.95.

We think this hair styling duo is a great find particularly for those of you looking for a natural alternative to chemically based styling products. Unlike other hair styling products, the hair will remain flexible and shiny, even when being used daily. 100% of the total ingredients in the product are of natural origin. If you’re looking for products that are going to help you create flawless styles, this is definitely for you!  

 

Argan & Orange Blossom Elixir by SoapNSkin

At The Amazing Blog, we think that everyone needs a go-to product. For us, our number one go-to beauty product is the handmade Argan and Orange Blossom Elixir from SoapNSkin, which is as versatile as it is effective. We cannot live without this product, it is 100% natural, effective on all skin types and can be used on your face, body and hair. Before we discuss the many ways you can use this product and the reasons behind its versatility, we have to tell you a little about SoapNSkin, which is one of our favourite brands. Founded by two mothers, SoapNSkin aims to empower women in any way they can, so not only is their Argan Oil Soil Association Certified, but it is also sourced from a supplier that is dedicated to looking after 600 Berber women that it has employed at its mill. This supplier only employs women and pays them a fair wage as they are often the sole supporters of their families, as well as providing free crèche facilities and education programmes.

Made with ethically sourced organic Argan Oil and Orange Blossom Oil, this beautifully fragranced elixir has a multitude of uses. This is because the Argan Oil moisturises, heals and renews lost vitality in skin and hair, while the Orange Blossom Oil helps to create an enviable glow. The ingredients are packed full of Vitamins A and E, Omega Fatty Acids and anti-oxidants which mean that your skin doesn’t just look better but is actually healthier on a cellular level.

To use this on your face, we would recommend gently massaging a few drops into freshly cleansed skin. The Argan oil is non-comedogenic which means it won’t clog up pores but will leave skin looking more radiant than ever. If you want to heal dry or damaged skin on your body – which can especially occur in the winter months – then we suggest applying the elixir directly to areas of concern and watch skin heal within days. Otherwise merely apply after showering for softer skin. Our favourite use for the elixir has to be when it’s used on hair.  If applied like a serum it will help to control frizz and leave hair glossy, but it also will soften hair and treat an unruly scalp if used as a leave-in conditioning treatment before showering.

We love this product and brand and hope you do too. The product only costs £42.00 and can be purchased here. All profits made from selling the elixir are given back to the communities who help mill the Argan Oil. 
 

Noir Caviar Range By Revolution Hair Concepts

Anti-ageing isn't just a skin concern, unfortunately. Hair and skin have very similar properties, and so hair can be tackled with an anti-ageing regime in just the same way as skin. We here at The Amazing Blog were therefore incredibly excited when we came across Revolution Hair Concept’s Noir Caviar range, as it is a 'Professional Collection' that delivers anti-ageing properties to your hair.

The Noir Caviar range was inspired by advancements in skincare, and will restore the hair’s youthful appearance thanks to their C3 Trifecta; caviar, collagen and ceramides. These ingredients are rejuvenating and replenishing. The Luxuriant Black Caviar from the Caspian Sea contains proteins, lipids and essential fatty acids, helping to restructure the hydro-lipid layer of the hair. This, in turn, helps to reduce moisture loss. Caviar is also high in mineral content and antioxidant vitamins, fortifying the hair fibres and increasing environmental protection. Collagen is a protein that is found naturally in the body, and is vital for hair growth, keeping hair resilient and full, while strengthening the scalp. Ceramides are also found naturally in the body, binding the hair to the scalp. Adding ceramides into your hair regime will help hair recover from chemical damage and protect hair against chemicals, heat and UVA.

Combining their shampoo (Anti-Age Restorative Cleanser), their conditioner (Anti-Age Restorative Moisturiser) and the Anti-Age Restorative Styling Crème will give you the locks of your dreams; stronger, smoother, shinier. The Cleanser will clean hair without stripping it of moisture and vital nutrients or fading hair colour. The Moisturiser renews softness and shine whilst hydrating and delivering the protective ingredients. To further smooth out frizz for polished hair, apply the leave-in Crème to damp or dry hair.

Purchase the Cleanser here for £13.50, the Moisturiser here for £13.50 , and the Crème here for £25.

Ginko & Sabal Fortifying Shampoo by Reseed

All of us here at The Amazing Blog know how powerful and beautiful you can feel when you have a good hair day. Having healthy, full and bouncy hair can transform your confidence. A mere good hair day can help you get your voice heard in an important meeting, make you feel irresistible for a first date, or make wearing that new summer dress, the one that’s been sitting in your cupboard for weeks, a little less scary. For us, Reseed’s miraculous Ginkgo and Sabal Fortifying Shampoo is the product that gives us a spring in our hair and our step.

There is a reason that over 91% of Reseed users would use the products again, and it’s because of the specifically designed 3 step system Reseed has developed. Their products aim to prevent hair loss, restore and promote natural hair growth and strengthen the health of hair. All of which means their products lead to fuller, shinier and healthier hair. The use of biotechnology has led Reseed to develop products using natural ingredients and excluding additives like Minox Idil.  With essential pro-vitamins, this shampoo contains a unique synergy of active ingredients to cleanse away substances that can clog hair follicles (such as pollution, smoke and dirt). In addition, it increases the hair's structural fibres, strengthening the roots of the hair leaving softer, stronger and shinier locks. The Vitamin F Forte in the shampoo contains polyunsaturated essential free fatty acids which revitalise the hair's condition and prevent hair breakage – even after hair straighteners have frazzled the hair! The Vitamin E Acetate is an active antioxidant that is particularly good at protecting hair from the sun

This product is founded in nature and science and can do nothing but good in our eyes.  You can purchase Reseed’s Fortifying Shampoo here for £25.00.
