At The Amazing Blog we’re fully aware of the current charcoal trend  in many beauty and wellness products, which is where we have covered it here from Restoria’s Charcoal Exfoliating Wash to White Glo’s Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste and Just For Tummies Food Supplements. What we like about activated charcoal it removes excess oil, dirt, environmental pollutants, and dead skin cells from pores, leaving us feeling detoxed, helping us to achieve a more radiant complexion. With this in mind, we were keen to try the new Procoal Activated Charcoal Purifying Detox Face Mask.

Procoal is a UK-based company and was started in 2016 after its founders set out to create high-quality products without lower-cost filler ingredients, like a few charcoal brands that can be found in this sector. The company prides itself on ‘prioritising quality over profit’ and uses natural ingredients that are traceable, ethically sourced, free of parabens, and cruelty-free.

The Purifying Detox Mask uses one of its four key ingredients, charcoal, to deep clean pores and remove pollutants. We can see why Egyptians have used activated charcoal for centuries for its many different uses-including drawing poison from wounds-because you can feel clearer pores after just one use of this mask. Natural clays kaolin, montmorillonite, and ghassoul work to absorb and eliminate impurities and sebum as well as even out your complexion. Besides making your skin feel fresh, this product is effective on all skin types (charcoal is very gentle and won’t irritate sensitive skin) and helps fight acne. So, take 5-10 minutes out of your day to relax and treat your skin with this face mask while knowing that what is in it is all-natural. You can buy the mask for yourself here for £8.99 .

Miss Patisserie's French Delicacies!

With the early April sunshine now just a distant memory and next month set to be the coldest May in over a hundred years it feels like winter all over again here at The Amazing Blog. And when the skies are this dismal and grey, there's nothing I like better at the end of a long day at work than a nice, long soak in a hot bath with an accompanying glass of wine. And as I'm always on the lookout for new bathtime treats, I was thrilled to come across the French-themed Miss Patisserie. Designed to cater for your every need - whether you want to relax, de-stress or refresh, Miss Patisserie offers a range off luxurious products that put the fun back into bath time! The fragrance and essential oils are designed to evoke the senses and have been created with past times and fond memories in mind and they use natural ingredients including both epsom and dead sea salts all of which have amazing benefits on the body. I tried the pastel coloured French Macaroons, which look just like the real thing and are named after the most glamorous French cities including Paris and Cannes. Bursting with fragrance and fizzy salts, these bath accesorries are a real French delicacy! Available online from the Miss Patisserie website.
