Hair Oil

By Sarah London's Organic Hair Oil

We're sure we're not alone in admitting that we spend our early mornings armed with a hairdryer (and other hot hair styling tools…) Whether we're going for a straight or curly style, we're no strangers to using a little heat to tame our tresses at The Amazing Blog; and while our hair looks well groomed, we do struggle with the inevitability of dry and damaged ends. From this issue emerged a quest to bring the shine back, bringing vegan brand, By Sarah London, into the frame. They introduced their Organic Hair Oil to us, and this has been our newfound way of injecting some much need moisture, and we couldn't wait to share this with you all!

By Sarah London is a natural and organic brand, providing products that demonstrate full transparency concerning ingredient choices. From humble beginnings, this brand emerged when founders Sarah and Lauren took on the challenge of soothing Lauren's skin while recovering from leukaemia. Their plant-based goal has since developed into a full range of hair care, body care and skincare products that promote conscious living and natural wellbeing simultaneously.

We tried their Organic Hair Oil, a 98% organic and 100% natural product, without the use of artificial ingredients, essential oils or fragrance. Instead, this gem of a find contains Argan oil, sea buckthorn oil and Vitamin E, actively working to prevent thinning of your tresses, and preventing the split ends often associated with the use of heat treatment. Having used this for a few weeks, we can confirm our hair looks and feels both stronger and softer, and with a pretty and recyclable glass bottle - it looks great on any dressing table too. The oil is also unscented, and is a nice addition in the market of heavily fragrance hair oils. To use, add 1-2 drops to clean, damp hair before blow-drying - or, we were also pleased to discover, this oil can be used before air drying your hair (with no sticky residue - bonus!)

To bring the shine back to your hair, visit the By Sarah London website here, where you'll find the 20ml bottle available for £21.50, a little goes a long way!.

Nuxe - Huile Prodigieuse 25th Anniversary


Nuxe’s flagship product, Huile Prodigieuse, is celebrating its 25th anniversary which is exciting news for all fans of the French beauty brand. To celebrate this monumental birthday, the company has released three limited edition bottles of their number one dry oil. The Amazing Blog has long been devotees of Huile Prodigieuse, and we were lucky enough to sample the limited edition products before their release. 

The three colourful and exclusive bottles are decorated with botanical lace and each represent a unique quality Nuxe possess and value. The coral celebrates 25 years of passion, the turquoise represents 25 years of emotion, and the white symbolises 25 years of pure beauty.  As well as the new and stunning bottles, the company has refreshed their original formula. The product now contains Tsubaki oil, a powerful anti-ageing ingredient which is quickly absorbed and nourishes the skin.  Along with the addition of Tsubaki oil the, the dry oil contains hydrating sweet almond oil, vitamine Eborage seed oil and softening Macadamia nut oil. The use of Camellia oil gives the product a beautiful and full-bodied botanical fragrance that encapsulates the essence of the company; which is, everyday luxury. 

Huile Prodigieuse leaves no greasy texture and is easily absorbed into skin or hair. The diversity of the product is what makes Huile Prodigieuse so utterly fantastic in our eyes as the dry oil can be used on the face, body and hair. For a more youthful look apply once a day, to eradicate stretch marks massage into problem areas, and to repair damaged hair rub into ends as frequently as you deem necessary. What’s more, Nuxe is a brand inspired by the infinite power of plants, as such their products are rooted with an eco-attitude and use nature as a way to innovate their skincare. This really is a wonder product, and one we can’t wait to use for the next 25 years.

 You can purchase the set here for £29.00.

Day Cream and 10-in-1 Hair Oil - Nurture Replenish

We at The Amazing Blog know that our readers are women of all ages, so we like to feature a variety of products that cater to different needs. That’s why we were happily surprised when we came across a range of products that are specifically tailored to the needs of women during and after menopause. Unlike other products made for mature skin and hair, the Nurture Replenish line focuses on nutrition supplements alongside complementary beauty products, all containing phytoestrogens to help replenish levels of oestrogen. We were given the chance to try out the Day Cream SPF15 and the 10-in-1 Hair Oil.

The Day Cream SPF15 contains Lipobelle Soyaglycone, the most active form of phytoestrogens available. It stimulates the production of collagen and prevents degradation, to improve skin density by up to 17%, whilst reducing lines and wrinkles. It also contains Vitamin E to improve skin texture as well as starflower oil to increase flexibility and pro-vitamins B5 and B3 to reduce epidermal water loss. The fragrant 10-in-1 Hair Oil contains a blend of natural oils, vitamins and phytoestrogens to moisturise, boost shine, provide colour protection, improve texture and manageability, and prevent breakage.

Here at The Amazing Blog we are always searching for this soft, beautiful and voluminous hair effect that lasts all day long. Luckily, this is not a hard task with the Chia Seed Oil products from Natural World.

Let’s be honest, how many hours have you spent in front of the mirror trying to fix your unruly mane? Too flat?, No character? From now on, you don’t need to dream about the voluminous hair that celebrities usually show on the red carpet. This range of shampooconditioner and oil is designed to boost volume and strength whilst providing a shiny and silky texture, giving us a bouncy and considerably fuller- looking hair.

The creamy Volume & Shine Shampoo is 95% natural and it is infused with Orange, Lemongrass, Cedar Wood, Rosemary and Ylang-Ylang oils that will leave your hair exquisitely soft and nourished. It also provides volume by effectively removing the dirt and impurities that weigh down your hair and make it limp. The Volume & Shine Conditioner is also infused with the same 5 essential oils and has a smooth, creamy texture. We know that the biggest enemy for limp hair is often the conditioner; it might be too heavy and add extra weight, but the Natural World conditioner and its Chia-extract formula helps remove impurities revealing a healthy, non-greasy hair while moisturising and detangling at the same time. The Volume & Shine Anti-gravity Treatment Oil gives the final touch to the whole process. This oil is ultra-fine and it quickly absorbs providing a voluminous hair that will last all day long.
