Pure Thoughts Whipped Shea Body Butter

NEW body butter blog image

 The weather is changing at the moment, and with the onset of the first autumn chill comes our least favourite thing: dry skin. At The Amazing Blog we know that it is important to maintain our skin care routine, despite our busy schedules, to prevent the weather from affecting our skin. So, we have been trying out the Whipped Shea Body Butter by Pure Thoughts to banish any dry skin and keep our skin supple and moisturised.


We tried out the Tangerine and Jojoba flavoured body butter and the smell is amazing. It is really citrusy and the scent lingers on your skin long after application. This citrus scent is warm and tangy which has a calming effect and lifts the spirits. The body butter also comes in Lavender and Jojoba and also an unscented version.


Pure Thoughts have an all natural philosophy, and believe that natural skin care should mean only the best ingredients. The butter itself is composed of 100% natural ingredients and contains Shea butter, jojoba oil, tangerine oil and limonene… and that’s it! It has no nasties, such as parabens or added chemicals that can irritate the skin, so this butter is perfect for those with sensitive and dry skin. This also means that the product is gentle enough to be used on the face and body on a regular basis.


Shea butter is a wonderful ingredient that is rich and luxurious on the skin. It is particularly helpful for soothing dry and damaged skin due to its repairing properties - perfect for this cold weather! The jojoba oil moisturises and also restores balance to neglected skin. Not only does the butter soothe dry skin, it can also be used to relieve sunburn, reduce the appearance of stretch marks and it can help those who suffer from eczema and psoriasis, making this an all-round great beauty buy.


The butter is almost balm like, so only a small amount of product is needed to nourish the skin. Despite being an oil based product, the butter does not feel greasy on the skin; instead the skin feels instantly softer and more hydrated. This would be a fantastic product to apply before bed time so you wake up with soft and supple skin.


The Whipped Shea Butter retails for £11.95 for an 85g, which we think is fantastic value for money for an all natural product, made of the finest quality ingredients. You can get yours from the Pure Thoughts website. Pure Thoughts have been very generous in offering a special 10% discount on the Whipped Shea Butters for one week only; you can redeem your discount by entering the code AMAZING at the checkout.



Shangri La Organics Guardian Angel Rescue Balm

With the great British Summer as indecisive as ever - baking hot one day, thunderstorms the next and so on and so forth, it's little wonder that our skin bears much of the brunt of the changing winds. And while most of last week's sun fell during office hours (what else did we expect?!) it's fair to say that most of us had the opportunity to spend at least a few hours in the sun, with the result being a few rosy faces and burnt shoulders here at The Amazing Blog. Thankfully, we recently came across Guardian Angel Rescue Balm by Shangri La Organics which is 100% plant based and contains only the finest certified organic ingredients. With no parabens, chemicals or any other hidden nasties that are frequently found in so-called 'rescue' products, it's certainly a great investment to make, especially given the unpredictable weather here in the UK and the consequential effect on our skin. The lavender-scented balm melts effortlessly into dry, fatigued skin and really helps to boost moisture levels. Blended organic oils of Apricot kernel and Rosehip with divinely rich natural, Organic Shea and Cocoa Butter help to soothe and restore even the most stressed out skin.

It's the perfect handbag product as it's a fabulous multi-tasker that can be used for a whole host of skin complaints including dry, chapped lips, stretch marks, scars, cracked feet and heels and insect bites to name but a few! And it's also a great addition to any yummy mummys bag; due to its completely natural composition it can be used to soothe nappy rash, cradel cap and dry patches.

And so, if you're after the next big thing in beauty; our best are on this beautifully packaged multi-tasking balm. Check it out here.
