When I was first approached, I hadn't heard of this brand before. Then I thought...we have the same name, I defo need this on my bathroom shelf!
Amie is aimed at 'young skin', approaching my mid 20's I was hoping I still scraped into that category. All of their products are dermalogically testes, contain no parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, mineral oil, soap, GMO or animal extracts. They are vegan and vege friendly and come in 100% recyclable packaging. Thats my good deed of the day done!
To be honest I wasn't expecting much from a 'natural' product. Most skin care I have used contains all sorts of ingredients to kill off blemishes, slow aging and probably do more bad than good to my skin.
In the set are 5 different products, I have mixed reviews on them so I will talk about the separately.
Bright eyes- 'Very gentle eye make up remover-this oil free formula sweeps away traces of the day without irritating the delicate eye area.' Nice smell, but this just wanted to get into my eyes which hurt! It says no tears on the bottle but I an assure you there were on a couple of occasions. You have to be really careful with this. It was quite messy when removing my mascara, 10 cotton pads later my eyes were clean. It did leave them refreshed and not irritated. I have very sensitive eyelids so this was nice to use.
New Leaf- 'Skin Exfoliating Polish- this moisturising exfoliating wash gently yet effectively cleanses pores whilst smoothing away dulling dead surface cells.' I love exfoliators. I have dry skin so this is a must have for me. This one was nice and creamy and did the job. I would have preferred some more 'grit' in there but as it is aimed at young skin I can see why the formulation is like that. I have been using this every few days.
Morning Clear- 'Purifying Facial Wash- effortlessly cleanses delicate facial skin to lift away dirt, oil and make up' This is so creamy, smells so lovely and left my skin feeling clean but without the usual tightness. Love this.
Morning Dew- 'Matte finish moisturiser- lightweight, oil free daily moisturising lotion keeps skin shine free and hydrated'. I really didn't think I would like this. I like my skin to glow and I thought this would dull it down. It does mattify but it doesn't dull the skin. My skin still looked fresh even through my make up. The best thing about this, I got to the end of the day when I was driving home and realised how fresh my sin felt. Normally I cant wait to take off my make up and let my skin breathe, but there was no rush with this. Plus a little goes a long way. This is the star product from the range.
Spring Clean- 'Cooling Clay Mask- Pampering French White Clay, Lime Butter and organic peppermint mask' I haven't used this yet...oops!
I really have enjoyed using this range. The packaging is lovely and the set I received comes in a wash bag with my name on...well Amie... This would be the perfect stocking filler for a sister or cousin who is just getting into make up and skin care. It retails at £19.95 and is exclusive to www.amieskincare.com. My sister said she has seen this in Superdrug too. If you only try one thing from the range, try the moisturiser! Order online and you can get free P&P.
