I first came across Amie's skincare range via Tania's blog a while ago, so I was delighted when the brand got in touch with me to ask if I'd like to try out some of their products. Although Amie's budget-friendly range is primarily marketed towards teens, it'll work for anyone who has troublesome skin like I do, so I was excited to give these a go.
Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash* (150ml, £4.95)
The first product I tried was their Purifying Facial Wash; a creamy based cleanser that's ideal to use first thing in the morning. I used this in the shower as part of my getting ready routine, and it was really lovely to use. It has a very subtle / delicate fresh scent to it and the cleanser made my skin feel soft and thoroughly clean when I got out, without any dryness or tightness at all. This would be great if you have oily skin because the soap-free formula balances everything out without stripping away your natural oils. Made with 96.8% natural ingredients.
Amie Morning Dew Matte-Free Finish Moisturiser* (100ml, £4.95)
I'm still on the fence about how I feel about this one. It's probably because it's winter and my skin needs a bit more hydration that it usually does, but this didn't work so well for me. It has a lovely subtle scent like the face wash and made my skin feel soft, but ultimately it just didn't wow me. I'll be sure to give this another go in S/S next year however to see if I feel any differently about it then. Made with 90.8% natural ingredients.
Amie Bright Eyes Very Gentle Make-Up Remover* (125ml, £4.75)
Bright Eyes is an oil-free, non-greasy, make-up remover that lives up to its name of being very gentle to use. It removed most of my make-up easily, but sadly struggled to shift my stubborn waterproof mascara. Despite this, I'll still enjoy using the rest of the bottle up because it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes and does an excellent job with the rest of my make-up. Made with 98.9% natural ingredients.
Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask* (10ml sachets or 75ml tube for £4.95)
My favourite product is definitely the Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask. I was so impressed with this that I've already added the full size tube to my xmas wishlist; simply put it's amazing! The mask has a deep cleansing effect that really draws out all of your impurities making it ideal to use if you battle with breakouts. It has a lovely cooling sensation and like the rest of the range, smells subtly fresh too, with lots of mint. I got two uses out of one sachet, so I'm saving up the extra sachet to use when my skin plays up again. Made with over 94% natural ingredients.
Amie products contain no parabens, mineral-oils, petrochemicals, sodium laureth sulphate or sodium lauryl sulphate. They also have no ingredients of genetically modified origin, animal testing or animal ingredients and the range is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Available from Boots.
