We are becoming a protein-obsessed nation. About half of us are looking to add extra protein to our diets. The average sedentary man should receive 56g per day, while the woman needs 46g. The market is flooded with protein products. Some are good, others are not so good.
Today we introduced three that impressed us and also tested leading eye creams.
Health with Jane Atkinson
grenade – His protein bars are a firm favorite, and now they've pulled out a summer-inspired drink Strawberries and Cream Ready in a Bottle.
It's 195kcal and a whopping 25g of protein per 330ml bottle. Plus, it's low in sugars and fats.
That taste was really creamy.
Great if you're on the go or after a great workout. £ 2.50 for 330ml, grenade.com.
JACKET'S KITCHEN – Most protein products have the unmistakable taste of the nutrient, but this new porridge by Jacqueline Whitehart is gone.
It's a combination of oats, a slow-release milk protein called casein, whey protein, and inulin fibers. 200cal per serving and 20g protein.
Add hot water and you get the perfect breakfast.
I will definitely buy again. £ 5 for a two-day trial or £ 49 for 28 bags of mash. See jacskitchen.co.uk.
LIVE NATURAL PROTEIN “The British firm's snack bars taste like chocolate.
The three flavors are vegan and contain 10 g of vegetable protein. These were called "vegan snack bars" and they are delicious.
I tried peanut butter – dark chok, tuyere and rice protein.
215 kcal per bar and 20 g protein. £ 1.99 for a 49g bar. See eatvive.com.
Beauty with Gabriela Stein
BUDGET – Nacomi Argan Oil Eye Cream, (£ 13.99, 15ml – mybeautybar.co.uk)
Aroma-free product infused with natural ingredients.
Argan oils and grape seeds nourish the skin deeply, while shea butter, coconut oil and vitamin E are rich in antioxidants to deal with fine lines.
It had the thickest texture of the three, so it feels super moisturizing when applied to push the hollow area under the eyes.
MID: Ishga Rejuvenating Eye Balm (£ 47, 30ml – uk.ishga.com):
Formulated with 90% organic ingredients, it promises to moisturize, strengthen and tone the eye area.
Shea nourishing oil is layered with vitamins A and E to stop wrinkles, as well as vitamin F, rich in fatty acids, to fill cells.
Argan oil increases elasticity and improves firmness. My skin appeared immediately firmer.

LUXURY: Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme (£ 30, 15ml – boots.com):
Lightweight, multifunctional cream for immediate brightening of the eyes, directing fine lines and providing a makeup base.
Collagen is also deeply hydrated, and vitamin C fights aging. Aroma of orange and green tea extract.
Expensive for only 15ml, but my favorite.
