MJ’s top 4 products for looking and feeling good

Looking good and feeling good are so important to a healthy lifestyle and happy mind. This month I’m taking a look at for products in the health and beauty world that will make sure you’re feeling and looking your best.

lq joint care

LQ Joint Care

As we get older, taking care of your joints is so important, especially in the fitness world where you have increased pressure and resistance during your workouts.

The LQ liquid health supplement is the market’s leading joint care supplement, saturated with ingredients to improve joint flexibility and mobility whilst reducing joint pain. The benefits of a drink rather than a tablet is that the supplement will go straight into your bloodstream whereas tablets can take hours to digest.

The key ingredients of marine collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, ginger, lychee and copper all support healthy joint maintenance and repair. Key here is the addition of copper which contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissue.

I know this product is going to be a staple in my supplement regime, oh and they taste great too.

Priced at £24.99 for 10 x 50ml and available from Holland and Barrett stores.

6vitamin shot


There are loads of vitamin supplements on the market but the 6VitaminShot is the king of them all – boasting that it’s the ‘UK’s finest super-dose daily vitamin’.

Combining caffeine, taurine, vitamins and amino acids, this vitamin shot will help reduce tiredness and fatigue and support energy release. For people with a busy lifestyle, these supplements are a fast and efficient way to support mental function and performance and keep your immune system in check.

For fitness folks, this is best taken around an hour before your workouts for that extra boost and for endurance athletes directly before the event. If you just want a supplement to support day to day living, I’d recommend taking this first thing in the morning to give you that boost to take on your day.

Overall, ten 6VitaminShot is a great supplement for making you feel great and supporting your workout. Plus it doesn’t contain aspartame which many of its competitors do!

Priced at £24.99 for 12 shots.

Rehab London – Back to Matte

I’m definitely a sufferer of the shiny fod! An active city lifestyle can cause my skin to feel greasy and shiny as the day goes on. The Rehab London product Back to Matte is my new favourite product. Especially with the summer well and truly here, this product is firmly in place in my gym bag.

You can use this product throughout the day to leave you with a shine-free complexion and it also helps control the excess production of excess oils. A lot of products will block your pores and can cause spots where as Back to Matt allows your skin to breath.

Just a light application on a clean face will leave you shine-free for hours and won’t damage the bank

Priced at £9.95 for 35ml and available at Boots.
