Ruskha's Travel Try-Me Kit


We are always on the go at The Amazing Blog, so when we find 100% natural and vegan products that are also travel-sized our eyes light up.  Ruskha’s Travel Try-Me Kit contains two products; the Skin Awakening Cleanser and the Concentrated Youth Elixir. Ruskha is Bulgarian cosmetics brand founded by Rossy Antonova. They pride themselves on creating products with 100% natural plant ingredients, without using any fillers or synthetic/toxic substances. They also hand make their products in small quantities so that you always receive the highest quality.

First, the travel kit includes The Skin Awakening Cleanser, which works to remove dead skin cells and clean pores. We like this product because it gets the tough job done without drying out our skin. The cleanser contains French pink clay, thermal muds, white willow bark, liquorice, sandalwood, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, and soapnut. These all-star ingredients have a variety of benefits, including extracting toxins from the skin and soothing + cleansing. This cleanser comes as a powder, but all it takes to activate it is a couple drops of water. This cleanser has taken our skincare routine to the next level.

Secondly, we have The Concentrated Youth Elixir, a Pure Beauty Awards 2018 Finalist. It is wonderful for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This powerful elixir has the skin looking rejuvenated and radiant. This product contains 18 powerful ingredients some of which include: French lavender extract, Salicornia extract, mastic gum extract, Argan oil, and frankincense oil. This mixture gives the skin a healthy glow, as well as making the skin look younger and more hydrated. All it takes is 1-4 pumps of the elixir applied to a clean face in the morning and evening.  

You can purchase Ruskha’s Travel Try-Me Kit that includes a 10ml bottle of Concentrated Youth Elixir and a 100ml bottle of Skin Awakening Cleanser, here for €59.

New Collagen Supplement Drink by Calla-Coll

picture blogpost FINAL.jpg

At The Amazing Blog we believe in the saying: “When you put good in, you get good out," so when we received the new collagen supplement drink Calla-Coll that contains peptides and hyaluronic acid too, we were interested to put it to the test. Skincare professional, Lynne Baker from Calla Salon, has worked hard for the past five years to create this high-potency drink with the help of a specialist lab in Sweden using bovine collagen. 

As we age, our body naturally slows down its production of collagen. Soon enough we begin to see fine lines on our skin and start to feel achy in our joints and that’s when we know we need to take action. Calla-Coll is expertly formulated using the best ingredients to ensure our nails, skin, hair, joints and our overall body is functioning as it should be. The formula is also enriched with essential vitamins C, B5, B6, B7 and B12 and the key ingredient: Type I and Type II bovine collagen, which is sourced from organic, free-range, grass fed and non-GMO cattle in Brazil. Together, these ingredients rejuvenate your body from the inside; giving you the energy you need to work through your busy day. The liquid formula makes it simple to take before you head out the door in comparison to most powder formulas that are difficult to fully mix.

The sweet berry flavour makes it enjoyable to take a shot on its own, but it can always be added to your favourite fruit smoothie. We added it to our banana and vanilla protein drink in the morning. We think that you need to take this supplement for three months before seeing visible results, we only had twenty days supply, although our executive editor did notice a little more mobility in her joints. This supplement comes in a neat 500ml plastic bottle with a separate small measuring cap. All you need is 25ml a day to help keep your body looking and feeling younger. Calla-Coll is available for purchase here for £45.


Pevonia’s EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment


Here at The Amazing Blog are always on the go and we don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon! Too much screen work and late nights have begun to take a toll on the delicate skin around our eyes and we're showing signs of stress, sleep-deprivation and the dreaded ageing. So you can imagine how happy we were to receive the new EyeRenew™  Conceal & De-Age Treatment from our trusted friends at Pevonia to hopefully come and save our day.

As mentioned, late nights and long days with our eyes glued to our screens have started to have an effect on how we look and feel. We all struggle with dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and how to conceal and refresh our tired eyes. This is why we loved the EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment;  it's one easy-to-use formula that conceals and de-puffs, thanks to an oil-free mineral tint,  while also smoothing any fine lines or wrinkles. We have found this to be an invaluable repairing eye contour treatment that gives a flawless finish. We also noticed that it has some great light reflective qualities, that helped to give a dewy and rested appearance to the eye area. The slim tube fits into a pocket to take on-the-go and reapply taking you through from day to night.

We've always been fans of Pevonia’s approach to skincare, where science meets nature. So it's good to know contained in this product is a natural blend of enriched plankton extract sourced from Tenerife, marine collagen and hyaluronic acid, all to revive and instantly refresh for a youthful glow. The EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment is free from the ingredients we don’t want near our eyes like mineral oil, lanolin, parabens, alcohol and artificial fragrances and colours. Additionally, Pevonia does not test on animals and each treatment comes in fully recyclable and biodegradable packaging. The EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment is available here for £57 and you'll receive a free gift with every order.

Argan & Orange Blossom Elixir by SoapNSkin

At The Amazing Blog, we think that everyone needs a go-to product. For us, our number one go-to beauty product is the handmade Argan and Orange Blossom Elixir from SoapNSkin, which is as versatile as it is effective. We cannot live without this product, it is 100% natural, effective on all skin types and can be used on your face, body and hair. Before we discuss the many ways you can use this product and the reasons behind its versatility, we have to tell you a little about SoapNSkin, which is one of our favourite brands. Founded by two mothers, SoapNSkin aims to empower women in any way they can, so not only is their Argan Oil Soil Association Certified, but it is also sourced from a supplier that is dedicated to looking after 600 Berber women that it has employed at its mill. This supplier only employs women and pays them a fair wage as they are often the sole supporters of their families, as well as providing free crèche facilities and education programmes.

Made with ethically sourced organic Argan Oil and Orange Blossom Oil, this beautifully fragranced elixir has a multitude of uses. This is because the Argan Oil moisturises, heals and renews lost vitality in skin and hair, while the Orange Blossom Oil helps to create an enviable glow. The ingredients are packed full of Vitamins A and E, Omega Fatty Acids and anti-oxidants which mean that your skin doesn’t just look better but is actually healthier on a cellular level.

To use this on your face, we would recommend gently massaging a few drops into freshly cleansed skin. The Argan oil is non-comedogenic which means it won’t clog up pores but will leave skin looking more radiant than ever. If you want to heal dry or damaged skin on your body – which can especially occur in the winter months – then we suggest applying the elixir directly to areas of concern and watch skin heal within days. Otherwise merely apply after showering for softer skin. Our favourite use for the elixir has to be when it’s used on hair.  If applied like a serum it will help to control frizz and leave hair glossy, but it also will soften hair and treat an unruly scalp if used as a leave-in conditioning treatment before showering.

We love this product and brand and hope you do too. The product only costs £42.00 and can be purchased here. All profits made from selling the elixir are given back to the communities who help mill the Argan Oil. 

Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask – iluminage Beauty

Here at The Amazing Blog we appreciate the importance of beauty sleep. So, any product that offers to help this process along is very appealing to us! For that reason, when the Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask arrived from iluminage Beauty we were very excited to add the mask to our nightly sleep routine. 

In addition to shielding the eyes from light and aiding in restful sleep, the mask has the ability to minimise the signs of aging. Made using thread that contains copper oxide, the mask has been proven to improve the appearance of the skin within only one month, with continued affect after prolonged use. Assisting in the renewal of skin cells and the growth of proteins in the skin, copper can help to enhance the benefits of a good nights sleep.   

If you’d like to discover the affects of the Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask for yourself, then visit the Harrods website where the mask is available for £25.
