Amie Skincare is a fairly new brand to me, I'd spotted a few of their products in previous beauty boxes, always receiving positive reviews wherever on the Internet and magazines. Ex Estée Lauder marketing executive set about wanting to create products for her very own daughter to use. With this in mind the brand Amie was created with no harsh chemicals, this natural range is affordable, effective and extremely gentle. I've been using these products for quite some time now, a review is well over due.
Out of the two products I received Radiant Dawn, an exfoliating daily wash has to be my absolute favourite. Just like Amie claims, it's gentle and effective formula really has become my best friend. The refreshing apple & lemon scent is delicious, but also tones the skin and balances oils. Blueberry seeds and vitamin E bursting beads exfoliate away dead skin, dirt and unblock pores. You'll be left with soft, nourished and of course radiant skin. This wash is dermatologically tested and free of any soap, oil, parabens, sulphates, mineral oils and animal extracts. Making it suitable for sensitive skin, vegans and vegetarians. The only 'niggle' to be found is the packaging, too much product comes out, you have to be extremely careful it's very easy to waste.
Finding a moisturiser to keep my skin happy proves to be almost impossible, I'm currently using Amie's Skin Shield or Naked's Thirst Aid. My use with Skin shield has been up and down, though since I've been using Soap & Glory's Peaches & Clean a few times a week I've needed a good SPF but struggle as I have sensitive skin. I whipped out Skin Shield and we've become great acquaintances, I was obviously using too much before. Skin Shield contains an SPF of 15 as well as anti-ageing protection - I'm still a little too young to be looking at 'anti-ageing' ingredients and blessed with a baby face. The moisturiser is very light, yet hydrates my skin leaving me with a great base to apply my makeup each morning. Like Radiant Dawn, this is another of Amie's delicious scents containing extracts of sunflower to nourish your skin while kakadu plum and blueberry shield against environmental damage and premature ageing. At £5.95 this is the most 'expensive' item in the range, would I repurchase? Yes, I doubt I'll come across a more effective SPF that also doesn't break me out. Have you used any Amie products? What would you recommend me trying next?
