It's important to have an effective skin care routine, not just to help make our skin as bright and soft as possible, but because our skin first and foremost works as a barrier to unwanted infections. That’s why at The Amazing Blog we constantly like to remind ourselves and our audience to find a good skincare routine that suits them. We were excited when the brand Bea Skincare sent us two of their products.

The first product we received was a Gentle exfoliating cleanser. Cleansing your face is an essential step in any skin care regime as it helps prevent a buildup of unwanted dead skin cells. Not cleansing your face leaves skin more prone to oiliness, dryness and dullness.  Bea’s new skincare range focuses on an efficient, high-quality beauty range that is non-irritating to the skin and simple to use.  It is recommended that you cleanse your skin daily, once in the morning and evening. Doing so will eliminate dead skin cells and dirt, without over-drying your face. This product uses beneficial ingredients such as green tea to treat your skin.

The next step is the Peptide Eye Serum. If you're self-conscious about your under eyes, then this is the product for you. Once your skin is cleansed, you can apply this product gently under your eyes to reduce puffiness and remove dark circles. Similar to the cleanser, it's recommended that you use this product twice a day for best results. This product's key ingredients include vitamin B and hyaluronic acid.

These products are available to purchase you can get the cleanser here for £29.00 and the serum is also available here for £39.00. 

Vata Hydrating Cleanser - SAMAYA

At the Amazing Blog, we believe in the long-term benefits of using all natural products rather than those laden with chemicals and so love testing new products that use simple, natural ingredients and we have found a brilliant product in SAMAYA’s Vata Hydrating Cleanser.

SAMAYA is founded on Ayurvedic principles with a holistic approach, aiming to provide their customers with ‘perfect balance' by using simple and effective ingredients. SAMAYA has three distinct ranges each tailored for different needs – Pitta, Vata, and Kapha. As everyone's skin is different, the variety in SAMAYA care is marvellous because it means you can find the product that is right for you. With each range containing a blend of botanical ingredients, free from parabens and synthetics, you can't go wrong.

The SAMAYA product we tried was the Vata Hydrating Cleanser. The cleanser was creamy and rubs in like an oil, making it extremely hydrating without being too cloying. We adored the subtle and natural fragrance of the product. When applied it felt luxurious and holistic. The ingredients in the cleanser are splendid, with Ayurvedic botanicals such as Rose, Turmeric, Tulsi, Gotu Kola, and Ashwagandha. This particular blend of high-quality ingredients has a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant effects, making it a great cleanser for skin prone to acne and redness.

Great at removing makeup and impurities without drying out the skin, it left our skin feeling softer and more balanced.

We enjoyed SAMAYA’s Ayurvedic approach to skin care as the product offers a relaxing and indulgent cleansing experience that has great results. To achieve the perfect balance, you can purchase the Vata Hydrating Cleanser here for £69.00.

Rose Plumping Cleansing Oil - Dr Renaud

As the cold weather is firmly here to stay, with no end in sight, cleansing oils are becoming a firm favourite with us here at The Amazing Blog. We have been trying out the fabulous Rose Plumping Cleansing Oil, from the always brilliant French brand Dr Renaud It is a gentle cleanser that removes all makeup (yes, even waterproof!) while leaving your skin cleaner, softer.

Dr Renaud is a brand renowned for its innovative and scientific approach to skincare. This approach has resulted in a high performing line of products that target any and all concerns you may have; from acne to redness and hyperpigmentation Dr Renaud will have the fix. This particular cleansing oil is suited to all skin types, and may particularly be appreciated by older skins, due to the cleansers non-drying formula.

Our favourite thing about this oil is that it’s full of wonderful, natural, skin-loving ingredients. It contains the active ingredients Rose Centifolia, Vitamin E, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Macadamia Oil. Whilst the rose and Vitamin E work to erase pigmentation and produce a clear complexion, the three nut oils condition and leave our skins plump and soft. The texture of the cleanser is lovely and light, turning into a milky emulsion on contact with water. You simply need to put a small amount in your hands to gently warm the oil and then apply to a dry face. After massaging the face, add water and rinse away the emulsified oil with fingers or a flannel. Your skin will be left feeling calmed and refreshed! The Rose Plumping Cleansing Oil is brilliant for fighting dryness and dehydration, so your skin will feel nourished and protected against the harshest and cruellest elements!

Martha Hill – Four Steps Skincare Routine

A regular daily skincare routine is essential for our complexions. Today at The Amazing Blog we will show you how to make it simple and almost perfect with these Martha Hill products. They’re all made with natural ingredients which complement one another. If you like cruelty free and natural, then these will be for you. Martha Hill created this simple four steps routine which will help to protect the skin from the moment of waking until bedtime.

The first step is the Essential Cream Cleanser a fragrance free lotion, which is light in texture but penetrates deeply into the skin's dermis removing even the smallest trace of make up. It is great for both a morning and night time cleanse routine, it also helps eliminate impurities. Once the skin is cleansed you’re ready for the Essential Gel Toner. Did you know that an extreme cleanse can deprive the skin from the natural oil that guarantees hydration? Well this very gentle gel toner, with its rosewater and cucumber ingredients feel fresh and revitalising without striping the skin of its natural oils, it also minimises pores and imperfections. Next step is the Day Cream, this restores and boosts the skins radiance with its moisturising properties of avocado and aloe vera. The forth and final step is their Overnight Cream, this repairs and plumps up all fine lines with its ingredients such as cocoa butter and beeswax replenishing the nutrients in the skin whilst you sleep.  With these four essential skincare steps you not only wake up looking radiant but are also ready to take on the day!

Mychelle Dermaceuticals - Cleanser and Eye Cream

Here at The Amazing Blog, it's no secret that natural skincare is a true love of ours. So we were excited to come across a brand that not only uses natural ingredients, but also strives to help the planet in return. Mychelle Dermaceuticals credits its fantastic range of products to the power of nature. Mychelle products are free from toxins and they ensure the packaging and containers are reusable and recyclable, resulting in their 2011 Responsible Packaging Award win.

We were lucky enough to try the Refining Sugar Cleanser and Remarkable Retinal Eye Cream. The natural sugar in the cleanser gently exfoliates the skin, but after contact with water transforms into a creamy, foaming lather that cleanses and hydrates the skin. This two-in-one product eliminates the need for an extra exfoliator - now that’s truly eco-friendly. For an added boost, the cleanser is infused with anti-ageing peptides and Crocus Chrysanthus Extract which firms the skin and reduces wrinkles. It seems there is nothing this cleanser cannot do!

The delicate moisturising eye cream requires only a pearl-sized amount applied to be effective - a little goes a long way. Turn back the clock with a formula of anti-ageing Retinaldehyde, plant stem cells, peptides and rich botanical oils. This defends your skin gently but extremely effectively against signs of ageing, by firming and smoothing fine lines. We loved the silky texture and yellow tint that colour corrected against under-eye discolouration.
