Spring has sprung, and the year seems to be flying by! This provoked a question in the office, how often do we take the time to switch off completely? It seems we do so very infrequently at The Amazing Blog, a revelation that has pushed us to think more consciously about including wellbeing rituals into our daily routines. When Nunaïa introduced their brand to us, we quickly realised it was the perfect way to do so with our skincare. Sharing our concerns for living in the fast lane, founder Nicola Connolly has created a brand focused on ritual, wellbeing and health – so you can imagine that we were eager to try their philosophy for ourselves. Not only that, but this seedling company are truly a great discovery, as they were recently awarded ‘winners’ in the category of The Best Facial Oil for Dry Skin in the prestigious 2019 Beauty Shortlist Awards.

Nicola believes that there are means and ways of bringing greater meaning and balance. Through travels to the Galapagos Islands, Ecuadorian Amazon and Andes Mountains of Peru, she discovered a unique and balanced way of life; one in which nature, wisdom of the land and oneself could live harmoniously. More simply, she realised that her work/life balance was somewhat out of sync, driving her goal to create a skincare brand that would bring intention and meaning into people’s lives (and glowing skin as a result of this). This is where Nunaïa was born – providing raw, living and superfood products from ‘Soil to Skin’.

We couldn’t wait to try their star product: Nourishing Radiance Serum; a vegan, cruelty-free and dermatologically tested serum, containing top-notch ingredients. These include sacha inchi, maracuja, chia and avocado – rich in essential plant actives and sourced uniquely from both the Peruvian Rainforest and Andes Mountains. We particularly love the texture of this oil; it has a perfect juxtaposition of a rich oil with a non-greasy finish, helping to soothe redness and inflammation simultaneously. Thanks to the use of vitamins A, B, C and E, our skin felt smoother and nourished after use, and if that’s not enough, the concoction of ingredients also protects against pollution, and both UV and blue lights. The packaging is also eye-catching, the serum itself is in a delicate glass bottle, encased in a mint green box. Nicole has thought of everything!

To use this oil, we recommend using every night after cleansing. If you have dry skin (or are taking the time to pamper yourself one weekend morning) then it is also a treat for a dehydrated complexion. You can purchase Nunaïa's bottle of goodness for 79 Euros Here. Enjoy!

Onça

Even though our mums are always telling us off for it, us girls at The Amazing Blog never get enough vitamins or sleep. Definitely not enough sleep. So we're always looking for the next best supplement to mix into our hectic schedules. With so many on the market to choose from, a lot of the time you can't be sure how much good they're actually doing you. But with the Onça supplement you can be sure that your body is getting the most natural and healthy ingredients, all while giving you a much needed boost! The Onça supplement is an all natural blend of ingredients to boost beauty and energy with anti-aging properties. In order to reap the rewards of Onça you have two sachets a day mixed with the drink of your choice. In the morning you have the 'Activator' sachet, designed to cleanse, detoxify, re-energize and maximise anti-aging protection. The 'Regenerator' sachet for the evening is a cellular regenerating mix to beautify and rejuvenate you. Onça uses only the best, most natural ingredients, and has a unique blend of 'super-fruits' such as Camu-Camu, Mana Cubio, Maracuja, Buriti, and Guarana which are proven to work wonders on your body. The ingredients they use are so rare that their supplies are limited to 3000 people per year. The fruits are harvested from deep in the Amazon rainforest - none of the ingredients are from plantations. The benefits you can gain from the Onça supplement are too numerous to list in this post, which is definitely a good sign that they're doing something right. We recommend using a blender with your Onça sachets, as the some of the natural bits in the sachet don't dissolve as easily. Of course, you should always consult your doctor before trying any new supplement.

So whether you want it for it's beauty or health benefits, be sure to check out Onça before it runs out!
