XShot – what is it?

How many cups of coffee do you drink a day?

Is your energy level usually low?

Do you suffer from tiredness, fatigue?

Are you sleepy and weak even though you seem to have enough sleep?

If those problems seem quite familiar to you, welcome in my world!  One might say this is due to spring or summer solstice – I keep explaining this to myself in this way. But hey, we still need to function somehow during the day, right? So how do you help yourself survive that? Do you drink coffee, like I do? Do you take naps, like I do? Do you take it easy, go to bed early enough and sleep long enough (well… I definitely need to work on that part still…).

So here. Colway International has come up with this brilliant idea to help us a bit in a natural way. Instead of drinking gallons of coffee or some kind of energy boosting drinks full of artificial sweeteners and very often also some unhealthy stuff… we have now that “XShot” which is a natural substitute for energy drinks.

And guess what? I just bought mine and it arrived YESTERDAY! I’m sooo happy 😀 I’m gonna try it when I feel low.

It comes in a nice pack of 10 little bottles.

And each bottle is a cherry flavoured liquid which contains a combination of vitamins, minerals and plant extracts selected to reduce tiredness and fatigue, as well as to support normal energy metabolism (vitamin B12). It is composed of 16 ingredients supporting the body’s own natural energy production mechanism.

WHO IS XShot FOR?

• Anyone who needs a burst of energy
• Anyone with an active lifestyle, practising sports and controlling their weight
• Regular gym members – as an alternative to synthetic glucose shots
• Frequent travellers on business trips by car, or anyone spending long hours behind the wheel
• Anyone working or studying for long hours – when an extra dose of energy and concentration is required
• As a healthy substitute for people drinking large amounts of coffee, which is well known for its acidifying effect

The list of ingredients is quite impressive. Have a look:

You can find detailed description of those active ingredients HERE.

It is recommended to drink one shot a day with a meal. I think it’s a perfect product for days like this, when you feel drained of energy but you need to maintain life somehow. It sounds like a perfect solution for me personally cause I exercise a lot a have quite a busy lifestyle. I’m gonna give it a go! 🙂

Of course please remember that it’s always worth to have some tests done. Constant lack of energy might be a signal that something is not right in our organism so it’s good to consult your health condition with a specialist.

Would you try it? How do you help yourself  when your energy level drops down? What do you do? Coffee? Energy drinks? hmm… Let me know in a comment below.

Face cream with natural antioxidants

As promised before, here’s a post about Natural Face Cream with antioxidants from Colway International.

 

The first impression:

The cream comes in a dark brown glass jar of 60ml capacity packed in a recyclable brown box. It has a spatula for hygienic application. The cream has a light pinky colour and a pleasant very delicate smell. It is recommended for both women and men.

What the Producer says:

Beauty Care Day and Night Cream for both him and her. The perfect condition for the human body is the balance between oxidants and antioxidants. The reduction or increase of free radicals’ activity is referred to as oxidative stress. Free radicals first attack the cell membranes of the skin, including structural proteins such as collagen. The effect visible on your face is the loss of firmness, wrinkles and lack of suppleness.

Antioxidant face cream is a genuine bomb that will protect your skin against free radicals and their harmful effects! A concentrated dose of 7 natural antioxidants will effectively smooth your skin, strengthen its structure and protective layer, and soothe any irritation. Your skin will respond with good condition and it will enchant you with its vitality and young glow.

What’s it made of:

Coenzyme Q10 – supports cell metabolism and regeneration and has antioxidative effects; it prevents cell damage, reduces wrinkles, makes the skin firm and young, improves the increase of moisturisation and suppleness.

Vitamin E – strong antioxidant; it stops the skin ageing processes, rebuilds the lipid layers of the epidermis and increases its protection against harmful external factors.

Chinese tea extract – thanks to the polyphenols, it has strong antioxidative effects, it eliminates the effects of free radicals, supports regeneration, has anti-wrinkle effects as it prevents the decomposition of proteins responsible for firmness and suppleness. It stimulates cell division, which is why it has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces skin irritation, flaking and redness. It shrinks blood vessels, has antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

Wild Andean rose extract – rich in vitamin A and C, it strengthens capillaries, has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and shrinking properties, supports the prevention of skin ageing and is perfect for sensitive skin care.

Rosemary leaves extract – recommended for the care of mature skin due to its firming and antioxidative properties. It combats free radicals and acts as a natural sunscreen. It disinfects and has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Sunflower oil – it strengthens the natural barrier of the skin, softens it and boosts the regeneration process. It has antioxidative properties, regulates the secretion of sebum and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Macadamia oil – supplies the skin with vitamin A, B and E as well as mineral compounds; it makes flabby skin firm and supple, stimulates microcirculation in the skin, moisturises and nourishes skin that is prone to dryness and flaking, helps protect the skin against harmful effects of the sun.

 

My impressions:

  • this is by far the most efficient face cream I’ve ever had! I’ve been using it regularly every day since August and there’s still about 2/3 left!!! Can’t believe it. Definitely great value for money.
  • application is very pleasant; the cream is very light, spreads smoothly on the skin and gets absorbed very fast, doesn’t leave that sticky feeling, instead makes it a perfect base for your makeup.
  • skin feels fresh and smooth after application, looks healthy and radiant. I didn’t get any unpleasant reaction and heard no complaints about this cream neither from my friends nor customers.
  • the cream regulates the secretion of sebum; skin looks fresh all day even with makeup on, it doesn’t become oily.
  • the only very little thing I would recommend for improvement is to replace the spatula with an airless jar with a pump, but to me it’s not a big issue anyway.
  • the cost €80.95 for 60ml might seem a lot to some, however taking into consideration how long-lasting this product is and what ingredients it contains, this price is not too high. Besides as a registered Customer you get a 10% discount, and as a Partner you get even 40% so in the end this cream might cost you only €48.57.

Natural Hair Conditioner

So I gave this Natural Hair Conditioner a try. Why not? –  I thought… To be honest I was quite hesitant about testing Colway hair care line, because I’ve been recently using only products designed for blonde hair, but then I remembered that I wouldn’t be able to truly recommend this product if I didn’t try it myself first. Here we go:

What the label says:

Broccoli oil smooths the hair, untangles it, and regenerates hair cuticles. Tsubaki oil prevents hair from drying out and supports regeneration of split ends. Vitamin E improves the condition of the hair, while d-panthenol restores its smoothness and shine, and regulates normal hair formation. Collagen nourishes it. The comprehensive hair conditioner composition treats your hair fantastically, strengthens its natural structure, leaving it strong, moisturised, and lustrous.

What I say:

I say, after the first application I was truly and absolutely surprisingly shocked! I wasn’t expecting this. Everything what you’ve just read above turns out to be true. My hair was smooth, delicate, moisturised, untangled! You may believe it or not but I felt like after a visit to a hairdresser! I loved the touch of my hair, so velvety soft. And the smell of this conditioner is very pleasant and refreshing.

Before going out I also applied a small amount of Natural Hair Serum with antioxidants, which I have tested before and was also satisfied with.

 

In this terribly windy Irish weather, I thought I’d have a huge problem combing my hair after coming back. No. I was absolutely shocked that combing went so smoothly (and it was the time of hurricane Barney and I was walking with my hair loose – can you believe it?!?!).

So at the moment, I’m still using my regular shampoo for blonde hair, but I switched to this conditioner, plus the hair serum occasionally. I think this is my perfect set for the time being.

 

Active substances of Natural Hair Conditioner:

Collagen – extracted from fish skin using a method patented in Poland, it is the only natural source of peptides, which freely penetrate the epidermis and stimulate the increased activity of fibroblasts.  It is a natural, hypoallergenic anti-ageing skin care product. It targets the root cause of wrinkles, i.e. collagen deficit. It also slows down the ageing processes by moisturising the skin, regenerating it and making it more supple.

Broccoli oil – obtained from seeds of Brassica Olearacea; thanks to its unique composition with about 50% of erucic acid (Omega-9) it has excellent properties and it smooths out skin and hair, regenerates hair cuticles and makes combing it out easier.

Tsubaki oil – obtained from Japanese camellia. Traditionally used in Japan and China to make hair more shiny and moisturised. It contains about 85% of omega-9 acids (monounsaturated fatty acids) and a fraction which is responsible for its anti-inflammatory activity. It regenerates damaged and split hair and prevents it from drying out.

Vitamin E – a potent antioxidant, it has a beneficial effect on the skin and hair, it slows down the skin ageing processes, it accumulates in hair and improves its condition, especially hair that has been bleached.

Vitamin B5 (d-panthenol) – that is, panthothenic acid, is a natural compound present in the skin and hair, which is necessary for their formation. Replenishing its deficit prevents the skin from becoming rough and from peeling, and hair from greying. It makes your hair shiny, elastic and smooth.

Natural Hair Conditioner (200ml): Regular price: €35.95 / Registered Customer’s price: €32.35 (10% discount) / Registered Partner’s price: €21.57 (40% discount)

Natural Hair Serum with antioxidants (30ml): Regular price: €32.95 / Registered Customer’s price: €29.65 / Registered Partner’s price: €19.77

NEW! Natural vitamin C with collagen !

Hot news! Colway International has just introduced a new product which is:

100% NATURAL VITAMIN C GEL WITH NATURAL COLLAGEN

This product contains 1000mg of highly bioavailable natural vitamin C in one dose. The tube contains 30 doses. It is already available for all EU countries in our online shop.

Vitamin C-olway with collagen is an uncompromising product. It contains pure collagen in a biologically active form, two plant extracts as well as trace amounts of synephrine and xanthan gum, also of natural origin. There is no added sugar (which was replaced by xylitol), mineral ascorbates, or any other forms of additional vitamin C or bioflavonoid complexes, because such combinations do not occur in nature. Green buckwheat and citruses contain enough natural flavonoids in natural complexes with vitamin C.

What it contains:

Bitter orange (Citrus aurantium L.) – is not an edible fruit, yet it acts as a great source of levorotatory vitamin C. The amount of vitamin C in the standardised extract may be as high as 42%. Bitter oranges are much richer in vitamin C than the edible ones. Additionally, they are also rich in polyphenols, anthocyanins and other powerful antioxidants such as bioflavonoids (for example, hesperidin and narirutin), thiamine, vegetable acids (such as folic, hydroxycinnamic, caffeic, coumaric, sinapic and ferulic acids) and also beta-carotene, provitamins, vitamins B1, B2 and B6, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, sodium, selenium and potassium.

Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) – is a plant known for thousands of years in Eastern medicine which has been used to fight problems such as high blood pressure, poor circulation, allergies, varicose veins, chilblains, capillary dysfunction as well as a whole spectrum of symptoms of premature ageing. It serves as a rich source of bioflavonoids, enzymes and other substances which are known to be beneficial for health. Extract of germinating buckwheat is a source of levorotatory vitamin C with the highest absorption by the human body. The plant accumulates and utilises all vitamin C potency when germinating. The extract of germinating seeds can contain up to 41% of levorotatory vitamin C, which is the best form of the vitamin for our bodies. Lyophilisates and extracts of green buckwheat are highly valued components of food additives because of the high concentration of flavonoids (up to 46,000 ppm) in their sprouts.

Collagen – contained in this supplement has the strongest biological activity and highest bioavailability of its constituent amino acids. It is sourced using a patented method. The need to supplement collagen emerges already at 26 years of age. Regular supplementation of collagen inhibits tissue ageing processes, which lead to numerous problems, including brittle and matte hair, loss of skin firmness and elasticity as well as joint and back pains.

In the opinion of many experts, this product is currently the best vitamin C product in Europe, enhanced with collagen of the highest anabolicity.

Body scrub which will make you WOW!

I have been testing this body scrub for some time now and what I can say in one word is simply: Terrific!

Why?

  • First of all, I love it’s consistency and the fragrance of figs and rhubarb. Delicately sweet but not overwhelming. To me, just right.
  • Secondly, when you towel-dry your skin, it still feels as if you’ve just had a professional body SPA treatment. Seriously, guys, your skin feels like as if you’ve just treated it with a fantastic moisturiser, it’s SO soft and velvety delicate in touch. It reminds me of my daughter’s skin when she was a little baby. There’s no need to apply a body lotion afterwards. I absolutely love it!
  • The list of active ingredients is also impressive and the little exfoliating bits which are of natural origin too; these are: peach stone and coconuts particles – great choice Colway!

Now let’s see what the website says about active ingredients:

SWEET ALMOND OIL – ensures skin firmness and elasticity, slows down the ageing processes, facilitates cell renewal and blood circulation in the skin.

CANE SUGAR – cleanses the skin thoroughly and removes dead cells without causing irritation or allergic reactions.

BLADDER WRACK EXTRACT – abounds in bioelements such as magnesium, potassium, amino acids, polyphenols, vitamins C and B; it demonstrates strong moisturising, nourishing and protective properties. It enhances elasticity and firmness, strengthens the walls of capillary vessels and removes swelling. It revitalises the skin and restores its hydro-lipid balance.
