As busy people working and living in London, we’re constantly looking for ways to make our lives a little less complicated. We want to pamper both ourselves and our skin but are often too tired to conduct a daily extensive skincare routine. Therefore, simple is always best and that’s why we were excited at The Amazing Blog to experience the great multitasking Sofia Latif Face Oil.

Created with a holistic approach to skincare in mind, Sofia Latif believes in the importance of using our me-time to reconnect mind to senses, soothing the mind and skin at the same time. Now that’s a philosophy we can get behind. The founder, Sofia Latif created the signature face oil to combat her personal skincare issues with pigmentation and sensitivity. Fearing her skin would be further damaged if she used prescription creams or steroids, she spent 15 years perfecting the blend of her face oil. The Sofia Latif signature Face Oil was shortlisted for the Beauty Awards in 2018 .

We love how many amazing ingredients are contained in this signature Face Oil . With the powerful anti-oxidant properties of moringa seed oil, the elasticity improving marula seed oil mixed with rosehip oil with natural retinol action and pomegranate seed oil for skin regeneration; this is truly an all-in-one product. The organic sweet almond oil seals in moisture while jasmine flower works to balance and Bulgarian rose flower refines. We’re also happy to report that this Face Oil is vegan and doesn’t contain any synthetic ingredients, palm oil, mineral oils, phthalates, SLS / SLES, and silicones.

The Face Oil is made in small batches in London, so it’s always fresh. We suggest applying it at night on cleansed skin or adding a drop or two to your moisturiser or primer to give skin an extra radiant glow. Wanting to give back, Sofia Latif provides microfinance loans linking with non profit Lend with Care to female entrepreneurs who are working their way out of poverty by starting their own small business, to date they have give over 20 loans since 2017. An amount of the sale from each product goes towards the investment in these women’s future. The Sofia Latif Signature Face Oil 10ml can be purchased here for £20.00 or for 30ml for £45.

Infuse My. Colour Wash

Keeping your hair colour vibrant and your hair healthy is somewhat of a task, as it requires both time and dedication. Fortunately, we at The Amazing Blog were lucky in discovering the Infuse My. Colour Washes, designed to refresh and add strong tones to coloured hair.

If you’re wanting to brighten and revive your coloured hair easily and quickly (and relatively cheaply!), these shampoos are worth looking into. We know the feeling well when your coloured hair loses its vibrancy, or the colour starts to turn an off shade or tone. These shampoos are simply great for prolonging the wait time in between colour appointments.  They are gentle on the hair and smooth the hair cuticle to seal in colour, leaving your hair silky and bold. What’s even better is that they are 100% vegan and biodegradable, and free from sulphates, silicones and parabens.

The shampoos come in Ruby, Gold, Copper, Platinum and Cobalt, and the idea is that each shampoo will work as a toner depending on the colour you’d like to achieve, so that you can rock your coloured hair with confidence. Copper adds warm tones to strawberry blonde, copper, auburn and brown hair. Ruby highlights brightness in red hair, or can add a fun pink tone to bleached blonde hair. Platinum neutralises brassy and canary yellow tones in pale blonde and white hair, maintaining a cool grey undertone. Gold adds sunshine back into honey blonde hair and Cobalt maintains cool dark blonde and brown hair.

Luckily for you, these shampoos are very easy to use; just sud up your hair and and wash out for an immediate result. Purchase the Infuse My. Colour shampoos from Boots in store or online for £9.30 - usually the product is £13.95 but Boots is offering 1/3 off currently.
