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.


APEX High Performance Bio-Serum by Lamiderm Skincare


Apex High Performance Bio-Serum By Lamiderm Skincare

The Amazing Blog is here to bring you an exciting new skincare product that has arrived in the UK with an unsual and unique hero ingredient. The US brand LifePharm Global Network has launched Lamiderm APEX High Performance Bio-Serum an innovative product which help us tackle the ever-foreboding issue of ageing skin. Distributed here in the UK by Discover 9 whose mission is to help individuals attain optimum health and wellness. 

So a little bit of background first. The production of lysyl oxidase decreases (LOX) as we age, and it is this LOX that naturally activates collagen, elastin and fibronectin. It is these skin fibres that keep us looking young and our skin firm and lifted. The APEX High Performance Bio-Serum actually helps to supplement the body's LOX production for improved collagen, elastin and fibronectin at the cellular level which in turn helps to promote the body’s production of LOX. The unique key ingredients for APEX High Performance Bio-Serum is harvested from LifePharm fertilised Avian egg extract and is the first known skincare product to utilise this revolutionary ingredient and the science is explained here .

Additional to the fertilised Avian egg extract, the APEX Bio-Serum formula also includes a 'radiance complex' for brightens the skin which is comprised of seven Swiss alpine plants and have been scientifically proven to improve cellar health. Vitamins C, E and CoQ10 are included too for protection against photo-ageing, whilst a blend of five fruit extracts support cells shield the complexion from pollution and UV radiation. What we particularly like is that the serum's carrier is a nutritious concoction of Aloe Vera juice, sunflower seed and coconut oils.  

As they say, the proof is in the pudding: 87% of users reported smoother skin, 88% more supple and healthy skin and 86% tighter and firmer skin after twice daily use. We certainly could detect a subtle change in skin texture; however, we think it needs more long term use for more significant results as we only used it for a couple weeks. What we also like about this serum is that it is not tested on animals, it is hypoallergenic and is free from all sulphates. You can see for yourself by purchasing the serum through their website here for £64.97

NEW blog template.jpg

At The Amazing Blog we believe that beauty starts from the inside and nothing is more beautiful than healthy, clean and brilliant teeth. Therefore we are always on the lookout for the most effective and most natural toothpaste. We recently discovered Taylor's 32  natural whitening toothpastes. The toothpastes are in three different flavours: Classic mint, Fennel and Mint and Grapefruit and Mint.

Taylor's 32 is a brand that values and promotes a healthy lifestyle; the company strongly believes in the benefits of natural and high-quality products to provide good brushing experience. Not only their whitening toothpastes are natural but they are also free from SLS, artificial preservatives, sweeteners and abrasives.

Their Classic Mint whitening toothpaste is an intelligent mixture of peppermint and unique essential flavour oils. The toothpaste is formulated with sodium bicarbonate, silica, fluoride, xylitol and vitamin E. Together these ingredients restore the natural whiteness of the teeth, remove stains, and strengthen the tooth enamel. The classic mint toothpaste deeply cleanses the teeth while leaving a fresh and minty feeling.

The Fennel and Mint like the brand's toothpastes is enriched with Taylor's 32 unique recipe and ingredients. The toothpaste is highly effective for removing stains caused by coffee, tea or wine. After a few application teeth look whiter and more brilliant. Infused with vitamin E renowned for its strengthening and protecting properties the toothpaste helps restore teeth natural shine without harming them.

Our favourite flavour of the lot is the Grapefruit and Mint one. What an unusual yet perfect combination. As well as being as effective as the other two the blend of grapefruit and mint gives the toothpaste an extra freshness. The sensation is pleasant and agreeable in the mouth; it has a zesty and minty flavour that is at the same time refreshing and invigorating.

These toothpastes are the ideal way to start and finish your day. If you are looking for a whitening toothpaste that will give you natural white teeth without damaging your teeth enamel, do not hesitate Taylor's32 is the brand.
