Amphora Aromatics Review

 

After recently discovering a new organic and locally based brand, I was so excited to test out some of their products. Amphora Aromatics have more than 30 years’ experience in creating amazing aromatherapy products. They use high quality ingredients from independent producers around the world, which is definitely reflected in their products.

The company prides itself in creating high quality products, yet still being able to sell them at a reasonable price.

The first product that I am obsessing over is from the essentials collection is the Sandalwood and Palmavosa Moisturising Face Lotion. One of the reasons why I love this face lotion is that it’s incredibly light on the skin. The refreshing fragrance is the perfect scent to get you ready for the day. 

I’ve been using this product for just over a week and it’s a huge impact on my face. I love using it in the morning as it’s the perfect base to apply my makeup, or to simply leave my skin feeling refreshed. It really does protect your skin from the cold winter months and leaves it feeling silky smooth.

The second product I tried out was the Sleep blend from their Aromatherapy Blend collection. Amphora Aromatics have six new blends, all of which are 100% pure. The range includes Sleep, Energise, Revive, Focus, Relax and Festive. They can be used in diffusers or burners to help promote relaxation and well being.

These oils are priced at just £7.50, which is incredible value for money. 

I tried out SleepComforting

“A relaxing and balancing blend of Juniper, Patchouli and Lavender gently soothes you to sleep. Comforting and warming Orange, Marjoram and Howood help combat insomnia by working to calm restlessness and anxiety – promoting peace and tranquillity. “           www.amphora-retail.com

Like many of us, I spend most of my week stressing out at work and drinking way too much coffee for my own good. Unfortunately this is regularly reflected in my sleeping pattern. With this in mind, I was excited to try out this blend and see if it would make a genuine difference to my routine.

Not only did this help me have a incredible nights sleep, I felt much more relaxed and stress-free in the evenings. This product definitely helps you chill out and it’s something I will be continuing to use for a long time.

If you’re looking for some natural and locally sourced products, then I definitely recommend you check out this brand. They’re based on Cotham Hill, Bristol or you can find them online at www.amphora-retail.com

Health & Beauty Bristol Blogger Event

I recently attended a Blogging event in which Health and Beauty bloggers and brands met to collaborate and socialise with each other.

The event was held at the Bristol City Centre Marriott Hotel. On arrival we were greeted with an amazing spread of delicious sweets and treats. I was so impressed with the decor in the hotel. The room we used was themed with Bristol’s greatest attractions and some incredible artwork. Below is a feature wall which I automatically fell in love with.

Not only was the atmosphere incredible, but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. If you’re looking for a place to stay in Bristol, then I would definitely recommend you check out this hotel as it’s in the perfect location and you will get a real taste of Bristol

I really enjoyed socialising with other bloggers and it was great to hear what others are truly passionate about. Along with meeting like minded bloggers, there were some really great local based brands at the event. The brands featured at the event were Amphora Aromatics, The Somerset Toiletry Company, Shy Mimosa Perfumery, Scentered, Grace Emmerson and The Pilates Room. All of which were incredibly friendly. I can’t wait to try out some of their lovely products for myself.

Thank you so much to Heather Cowper for organising the event. It was a really good opportunity to socialise and collaborate with some brilliant people. I’d also like to thank The Marriot Hotel for having us all, it was a great evening and I really enjoyed myself.

If you’re currently starting up your own blog then I would definitely recommend attending a local blogging event in your area. It’s a great place to pick up tips from like minded people and help get your name out there.

My Top Five Skincare Products

5skin

I have decided to pick my top five skincare products and explain to you guys why I love them. I am such a hoarder when it comes to skincare products, but these are five products I swear by.

The first item I chose is not really a skincare product as such, but my Magnitone Barefaced! Daily Face Brush is one of the best things I have ever used!
The item itself is £70, which may seem a little pricey, but you should definitely think of it as an investment. This may sound exaggerated, but after just one use of this brush, my skin felt silky smooth. After a few weeks of using this my blemishes have decreased significantly and I don’t think I could ever live without it.

The best part about this product is that it’s so easy to use! I use mine everyday in the shower and it has a timer which tells you when it’s time to move on to the next section of your face. It’s so easy you could clean your face in under a minute.

The second product I chose is my Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum. My first attraction to this product was definitely the citrus scent it has. I personally love the scent and having my skin constantly smell this way is a dream. I use this product everyday before applying my moisturiser and the fact that you can instantly feel your skin tightening is amazing. My pores have definitely reduced a lot since using it.

The main reason why I love this product is the fact that it protects your skin from issues such as environmental pollution. As I live in a busy city, this is definitely very important to me. Again this is definitely a product worth investing in.

The next product I have chosen is Mask of Magnamity face and body mask by Lush. I have tried way too many face masks and I am so happy to have finally found one I can stick with. I use this mask on my face at least one a week and it is perfect for a pamper night.

Once it starts to dry, this mask leaves an amazing tingly feeling on your skin which is one of the main reasons why I love using it. My skin is quite sensitive to harsh products, but every product I have tried from Lush agrees with me which is perfect. If you’re looking for a product to help sort out problematic skin, I would definitely recommend you try this product.

The fourth product I chose is the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur PrimerI have expressed my love for this primer before and you can read why I adore it so much here. If you’re looking to try out a new Primer I would definitely give this one a shot.

The last product I chose is an all time favourite. The Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion is a self-tanner which I always seem to go back to. If you’re looking for a natural glow to your skin, this lotion is definitely what you need. The price of this is very reasonable and I always find it on offer at my local drugstore or supermarket.

Unlike many other self-tan lotions I have used, this product dries pretty quickly so you don’t have to stand around for ages waiting for it to set. It also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth which is an added bonus!
Dove is a brand I can always rely on and I feel like I will continue to use this product forever!
