Abibu London’s Nutra-Revitalising Moisturiser

FINAL BLOG V.jpg

As the largest organ in the body, our skin goes through an incredible amount of wear and tear. That’s where a moisturiser comes in as the artillery, and the skin’s sword and shield. It’s our job to give our skin the strongest weapons to fight dryness and the appearance of wrinkles. The Amazing Blog discovered just the product, a defensive moisturiser by Abibu London.

As a newly launched skincare, Abibu London was founded by renowned pharmacist and product formulation expert Tomi Abibu (MPharm MPharmS); her belief is that the most vital component of healthy skin is consistent hydration. This is where she launched Abibu London, with its first ground-breaking all-in-one Nutra-Revitalising Moisturiser from the forthcoming hydraVictuals skincare range. Essentially, the hydraVisuals range of skincare is formulated to boost absorption, and the distribution of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to help improve the look and feel of the complexion.

The Nutra-Revitalising Moisturiser is armed with peptides to help the skin feel firmer, anti-oxidants, vitamin C and E, and natural extracts from chamomile, calendula, and aloe vera. This moisturiser is certainly ready for battle, and is also paraben-free and not tested on animals. Use the Nutra-Revitalising Moisturiser to even your skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation, and bring out your natural complexion. We particularly liked the elegant baby pink packaging with it's stylish square-shaped tub. It's certainly got a very luxurious feel about it and is a product that you'll proudly want to display as a dressing table centrepiece. The lightness of the consistency, together with the subtle rose scent, makes it a versatile and cost-effective product, we used it for both night and day. We say 'hurry up Abibu London' as we can't wait to try more from this new range! Purchase Abibu London’s Nutra-Revitalising Moisturiser 50ml here for £66.

White Glo – Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste

BLOG TEMPLATE.jpg

Recently, we've seen charcoal being used in just about everything! We’ve seen charcoal in ice cream, face masks, and beverages etc. So when we heard about White Glo’s Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste, we knew that we had to try it. Here at The Amazing Blog we're always looking for new ways to brighten our smile, and this toothpaste looked like a great solution. White Glo was founded in Australian in 1993 by Barros Laboratories Pty Ltd; they were the first brand to introduce consumer teeth whitening products into Australia. The brand prides itself on making highly effective products at an affordable price and this their Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste is just one of many oral products that they market. 

As surprising as it may sound, putting black charcoal on your teeth actually helps to correct discolouration. One of the main ingredients used in the toothpaste is activated charcoal. Activated charcoal provides many benefits for the teeth; it is able to remove deep stains, prevent bad breath, and whiten tooth enamel. Stains and bacteria are drawn to the activated charcoal which removes them from the teeth and creates a whiter smile. This toothpaste has a low-abrasion formula that is a safe way to whiten teeth while still protecting against cavities and bad breath. We liked the fresh taste, this toothpaste left our mouths feeling clean, refreshed and our teeth looking brighter! 

A pack of White Glo Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste also includes a toothbrush and a set of dental flosser toothpicks. We'd definitely recommend this product for not only performance but also the taste. You can buy a 150g tube of White Glo’s Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Toothpaste for yourself in person at Boots for £5 here or from ASDA or Tesco.
