Sunflower Body Lotion - My Trusty

Moisturising is something that we should all be doing at least a day. As such it is imperative that we have an effective lotion. At The Amazing Blog, we have found that My Trusty Sunflower Body Lotion works wonders on all skin, but especially if you are prone to particularly dry skin. My Trusty is uniquely owned by Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust and will not only give you gorgeous skin, but all the profits go back to the NHS.

My Trusty Sunflower Body Lotion has been tested by dermatologists, it is lightweight and full of anti-oxidants. The key ingredient in the product is the sunflower oil, which is a natural way to keep your skin soft and smooth making it perfect for people with overly sensitive skin. What's more the lotion is also full of Vitamin E which is a staple skincare anti-oxidant for better looking and healthier skin, and is particularly effective on dry skin.

My Trusty understands that different people like to moisturise in different ways. There is a no fragrance option, a body butter or oil, and different sizes to suit your hydration needs.

Savon Stories

Sometimes we beauty-lovers pay so much attention to our beauty products that we neglect our body-care routines and settle for the most inexpensive body washes at our local Boots. We at The Amazing Blog are certainly guilty of this, so we’ve made a conscious effort to move onto healthier and more organic products for our bodies as well as our faces.  Savon Stories is a company that firmly believes in handcrafting organic remedies for enduring health and beauty. We were given the opportunity to try a body wash, bar soap and lotion bar.

The Lime & Bergamot Organic Hand & Body Wash is 99% Organic and 100% Natural. It’s been cold-processed to retain as many benefits as possible from the blend of hydrating extra virgin Greek olive oil, nourishing coconut oil, castor, hempseed, and fragrant essential oils. The result is an ultra moisturising product that smells out of this world. The Bamboo Charcoal Bar Soap with Bergamot, Lavender & Rose Geranium is specially formulated to draw out toxins and absorb excess oil while deeply cleansing pores. This aromatic floral-citrus blend is highly recommended for oily and acne prone skin. Lastly we tried out the Argan Oil Lotion Bar with Mandarin, Neroli & Lavender. This solid moisturising bar is made from cold-pressed organic oils and butters that deliver vitamins, antioxidants & regenerative minerals. We love that it’s quick absorbing, leaving our skin smooth and non-greasy with a sweet citrusy and cocoa-y aroma.

Invest in some organic products with Savon Stories. You can purchase the Hand & Body washes here, the Bar Soaps here, and the Lotion Bars here.

Aloe Clear - Roll on gel


Summer has arrived! And here at The Amazing Blog, we cannot stop thinking about beach wear. When the time comes to get out the bathing suits, we also have to think about those pesky bikini areas and shaving snafus that can abound.

However, rest assured your problems are solved because we have found out about Aloe Clear. This roll on lotion is exactly what the doctor ordered if you have any issues with skin irritation attributed to hair removal. This handy lotion roll on soothes the skin and can stop ingrown hairs within 48 hours. Suitable for use by both men and women, this product can have you bathing suit ready in no time. Aloe vera, menthol piperita oil, and multi-fruit active ingredients calm redness and soothe immediately. The product feels and smells cool and refreshing, and the free travel size bottle that comes with the purchase of the 120ml roll on is perfect to go into our beach totes.

Developed in the UK and saddled with a 100%, 7 day guarantee, this bikini zone product is very nice for those of us who shave on a regular basis. The 120ml bottle is available here for £17.95 and comes with a free travel size bottle!

Bochery Nature Lotion and Soap

blog image This weather is ridiculous and most perplexing. We in the UK are currently experiencing some of the wettest Winter months on record. One thing that springs (ah yes Spring - we're ever hopeful!) to mind when thinking about this weather is what it does to our lovely skin. The Amazing Blog has been using the new Bochery Nature range as they have some deliciously re hydrating properties that will help to put back a peachy glow into our rather sallow complexions. What makes them a little different, is that not only are their products based on natural and active ingredients, but they also use special Nano-technology & Biotechnology so that the final result is gentle and won't damage the all important Melanin deposit in the lower skin layer; thus all their products can be safely used on both the body AND the face. We were particularly interested in trying out two of their cleansing skincare products the Bochery Nature Tonic & Oxgyenating Lotion and the Bouchery Aromatic Soap.

The Bochery Nature Tonic & Oxgyenating Lotion has a plentiful number of benefits for the skin. These include toning, cell oxygenation and energising qualities. Let’s not forget to mention the addictive, fruity smell that comes with the product. The packaging and product colour does slightly resemble the look of nail polish remover, but that shouldn’t put you off as the lotion itself is a really great way to revive and refresh the skin. It’s £17.50 and as a toner we think its good value, as a little really does go a long way - especially when applying after either a cream cleanser or wash-off make up remover. Their nano-technology is all about stimulation of cells to encourage ultimate revitalisation of the skin, it also offers protection against UV rays. There are natural moisturising factors to help replenish skin cells, making it a great pick-me-up product if you feel your skin is looking a bit tired and dull. I really recommend this if you live in London, or any busy city, as it’s a great way to cleanse your skin but not stripping it as it actually adds wonderful skin enhancers.

The Bochery Aromatic Soap, is a handmade delight which looks and smells wonderful. I have been trying the Aloe Body and Face Soap, and this specific one is for normal, dry and sensitive skin. Oh, and it also has anti-wrinkle benefits… so a bonus! There is Organic Glycerin in the ingredients to help make all this happen. I really love using natural soaps for my face but only when they are moisturising and natural as I can't bear that skin-tightening effect that you get with some others. This one is not only packed full of goodness but also has lovely shades of green in different densities making it a great addition as a bath time essentials. This soap is specially formulated not to react with your skin or cause spots, which many other soaps I have used have been prone to do. This is definitely worth a purchase, it can also be a great little gift for someone. It is only £4.45 and lasts and lasts... and can be found here.

The Bochery products and soaps are all dermatological tested, fragrance,  paraben, allergens and alcohol free. NO animal derivatives are used and NO hydroquinone is used. They are indeed just reliable products that get the job done.
