BLOG TEMPLATE.jpg

If like us at The Amazing Blog, you find yourself battling London's daily pollution; then you'll know the toll it can take on your skin. We not only need good moisturisers and SPFs to help protect our skin, we also require an efficient cleanser to take away the daily grime. Today we introduce you to a new British skincare brand, Atlantis Skincare who have produced an organic cleanser: Glowing Skin Cleansing milk that we have put to the test. The creation of Atlantis Skincare was inspired by the beautiful island of Santorini, believed to be a lost part of the mythical Atlantis. This recently launched skincare company have developed seven new 100% natural and handmade products.

This creamy cleanser is made from 100% natural ingredients, 87% of which are organic. Some of the superstar ingredients include aloe vera leaf juice, rose otto, hydrosol and witch hazel. These powerful ingredients get to work to cleanse, hydrate, and soften all complexions. As an added bonus it can also be used as a makeup remover.

To achieve the best results, we suggest placing a warm washcloth on your face to open your pores, prepping your skin for a deep cleanse. To use the product itself, simply dispense 2-3 pumps of the Cleansing Milk onto a cotton pad and gently apply to your face and neck, for soothed, cleansed and softened skin. You can purchase a 100 ml bottle of Cleansing Milk from Atlantis Skincare here for £39.99.

Babor – Multi Vitamin & Oxygen Plus Ampoule Concentrates FP

New new blog picture.jpg

Here at The Amazing Blog, we understand how important it is to maintain the correct balance of nourishment for our skin. A lack of vitamins can cause our skin to suffer and appear tired and stressed. What we particularly like about Babor's Multi Vitamin and Oxygen Plus is that they offer two different ampoule concentrates that can help to rejuvenate your skin. In the past, we wrote about Babor's Enzyme Cleanser; so of course, we had high expectations in trying out these ampoule concentrates... And we're happy to report that they didn't disappoint! 

Since 1956, Babor has been working to use scientific research in Germany to create products with the highest active ingredient performance rates. Babor is a family company that is committed to protecting the environment. They only use natural energy, ship their products in a carbon neutral manner and they only print on FSC-certified paper

One of our team used Babor's Multi Vitamin, this ampoule of fluid contains vitamin A, pro vitamin B5, vitamin E encapsulated in liposomes, and biotin. These different vitamins perk up the skin for the day ahead. It offers a wide array of benefits that are sure to bring a fresh and healthy look to dry or stressed skin, we think it's ideal for city living. This product can be used in the morning and/or at night depending on your own preferences and skincare needs. 

We also tried the Oxygen Plus in our regime. This ampoule is designed to wake up and refresh tired looking skin. The fluid contains encapsulated oxygen that provides skin cells with high energy levels leaving the skin feeling fresh.The product also contains vitamin E that protects the skin from free radicals and premature signs of ageing on the skin. An added bonus to some of you is that it is vegan! 

The two products are both very simple to use. After washing your face, you pour one 2 ml container of liquid into the palm of your hand and then apply it evenly to your face and neck. After using you can apply your regular moisturiser/night cream or if in the morning your favourite SPF cream ready to take on the day!. These two Babor products are available to purchase online in sets of 7 x 2ml glass ampoules. You can purchase your own Babor Multi Vitamin here for £20.00; or you can purchase your own Oxygen Plus here for £35.00.

 

Soley 'birta Lift & Glow Serum'

Overlooking serums in your beauty regime should be a thing of the past. If you keep up with us here at The Amazing Blog, you might remember we previously shared an amazing face mask from Soley Organics in our Friday Favourites, so we are thrilled to tell you about their birta Lift & Glow Serum. We also love a good story and Soley Organics has a wonderful history behind its creation. It was founded by the Icelandic actress Sóley Elíasdóttir, who was inspired by her great-great-grandmother's work as a healer. She then knew she wanted to take her family history and create skincare products that focus on using ingredients found in nature to heal the skin as her ancestors used to. 

This is why Soley uses Icelandic sourced ingredients in all of their skincare because they are known to work wonders on the skin. This serum contains Arctic sea buckthorn oil, which has been used for centuries for its medicinal and topical benefits. It is a miracle worker on the skin because it deeply nourishes every skin cell to prevent ageing and helps heal skin damage. It is also infused with Icelandic birch and yarrow, which have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties to heal the skin as well as give it a beautiful radiant glow. We also really enjoy the subtle earthy and sweet citrus aromas this emits as we massage it into our skin.


The berta Lift & Glow Serum has the best results if used both morning and night or it can simply be added into your daily lotion to pack in as much moisture and vitamins at once. You can purchase this serum here for £54.

Golden Greens Expert Collagen Complex

The fear of ageing has women of all ages stressing about the way their skin looks. It’s hard not to feel under pressure when all media portrays is perfect skin. The good news is that you’re not alone. We at The Amazing Blog can completely relate. If you’re afraid of or want to get rid of ageing signs, Golden Greens Expert Collagen Complex will seriously be your new best friend.

As we age, the collagen and hyaluronic acid naturally produced in our bodies, which are essential in maintaining the elasticity and overall smoothness of the skin, start to decrease. Once we get to our fabulous thirties, our skin starts to lose 1-2% of collagen a year, resulting in visible wrinkles and fine lines. To help boost collagen and hyaluronic acid levels, Golden Greens Expert has expertly crafted an organic formula that will naturally give your body back the key nutrients it craves in order to keep your skin looking and feeling as beautiful and youthful on the outside as you feel on the inside. 

The Collagen Complex does not contain any artificial additives, preservatives, or sweeteners and is made up of sustainably sourced Naticol hydrolysed marine collagen and high strength hyaluronic acid. This is all mixed together with a blend of skin-loving ingredients like organic lucuma (a nutrient-rich superfood that makes it naturally sweet), blueberry and acerola powders. Not only does it combine plenty of antioxidants, but it also packs in organic Vitamin C, which aids normal skin functions and collagen development. In other words, your skin will love you for it.

It’s very straightforward to use and easy to take on the go. Just add about two teaspoons to your water, fruit juice, or even smoothies, and mix well. Added bonus? It’s Non-GMO, gluten, lactose, and soy free. Prevention is the best way to keep wrinkles at bay, while maintaining a youthful and glowing skin, so start sipping! The Golden Greens Expert Collagen Complex is available here for £17.99.

 

24/7 Balm by Face Matters

A beautiful face balm is a big weakness of ours at The Amazing Blog, and in our expert opinion Face Matters make one of the best anti-ageing and restorative balms on the market. The Face Matters 24/7 Balm is an award-winning multi-functioning balm that won an editor’s choice award at the 2017 Beauty Shortlist Awards

The 24/7 Balm uses the same base ingredient, pure organic silicon, as all of Face Matters other products. This ingredient helps to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, which is an essential part of the formation of connective tissue and helps hair, skin and nails grow and appear youthful. Collagen is effectively the glue that holds us together and keeps us looking, healthier, younger and beautiful.

The balm itself is nourishing and luxurious when applied, acting as a super restorative treatment or an exfoliator. The solid balm melts effortlessly between your fingers into a rich and buttery feel that soaks into the skin. The quickest way to use the product is to massage it into skin before removing the excess product with a muslin cloth.  Our favourite way to use it, however, is to apply it as an overnight treatment.  Simply massage it into skin before bed and wake up to younger, more hydrated and glowing skin. The balm doesn’t sit on the face and is slowly absorbed as your skin regenerates itself overnight, so you don't have to worry about it rubbing off on to your pillow. This is an excellent way to keep skin looking healthy as we approach the colder winter months, especially if your skin dries out in the cold weather like ours does. 

This is a beautiful product that leaves you feeling pampered all day long. You can purchase the 24/7 balm here for £55.00
