PURE Papaya Ointment

As we've mentioned a many times before, the gang at The Amazing Blog loves allrounder products. The winter has been and is being very harsh - gloves, faux fur coats and good boots keep us protected from the entreme cold. One beauty product that we've been relying on lately is PURE Papaya Ointment - the 100% natural, petrochemical-free skin care essential from Australia.

In addition to papaya, or paw paw; ingredients include soothing calendula, shea butter, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, styrax benzoin resin, silica, beeswax and vitamin E. PURE Papaya Ointment soothes, moisturises and protects your skin - it goes beyond a lip balm, a body butter or a body oil; it's the ultimate multipurpose skin care product that can be used for so many skin ailments. The girls at The Amazing Blog always carry one these tubes in their bags! It has quickly become one of our handbag essentials.

You can use PURE Papaya Ointment as a lip balm, a body moisturiser, as an aftercare for tattoos, post epilation, post shave, as an eyecream... it's versatility leaves us speechless.

You can purchase this winter skincare essential though their website.

SPAtopia London Argan Oil Bodycare

If you ask me, there is nothing better than to find good quality and affordable beauty products - many times we just forget or don't want to realise the amount of money we spend on just one face cleanser because of the rave reviews it gets. That's why at The Amazing Blog we're thrilled by this A-list beauty discovery - SPAtopia London has launched a fabulous Argan Oil Bodycare range. Their products are affordable and work wonders.

The SPAtopia London Argan Oil Bodycare consists of 5 products: Bath Relaxer, Body Butter, Body Oil, Body Wash and Body Scrub. At The Amazing Blog we've had the chance to try the latter two out. The Argan Oil Body Wash is very creamy and feels luxurious on the skin, it lathers easily and it's very moisturizing - a definite winner for those of you with dry or flaky skin. The Argan Oil Body Scrub is a rich cream with very small and rounded scrubbing bits that don't feel harsh on the skin at all. This scrub polishes and nourishes the skin effectively, leaving it smooth and silky soft.

Both products smell absolutely amazing, the whole range is enriched with essential oils of Lemon, Patchouli and Petitgrain. Argan Oil has been on trend for a while now in the beauty industry - it has great skincare benefits and it's exceptionally rich in Vitamin E and Omega Essential Fatty Acids, and therefore well known for its anti-ageing, moisturising and anti-oxidant properties.

At The Amazing Blog we love featuring good quality and affordable products, and the SPAtopia London Argan Oil Bodycare Range has fulfilled our high hopes. This fabulous and luxurious feeling range is widely available from Sainsbury's - the Body Scrub retails at £4.49 and the Body Wash at £3.49. You can't really go wrong.
