amie skincare review

I'm back with another skin care review. This time with the brand Amie. Amie wasn't a brand I knew much about before but have since noticed that they sell it in Tesco and it's very affordable. I'd say this is a great for teens, young adults or anyone with problem skin. It's no secret that my skin is a problem for me (though it's been pretty great this past two months) and these products have quickly become my new favourites. I'm all for 'high end' skincare, but if something works, and it's less then £5, why knock it!! 

Amie Radiant Dawn Exfoliating Daily Wash* Free from Parabens, Sulphates, Mineral oils or animal extracts. Green Apple, Lemon Extract, Blueberry Seed, Vitamin E bursting beads. Smooth over wet face and massage into skin using circular movements and paying particular attention to areas such as the T-zone, where dirt and oil collect. Avoid using on delicate skin around the eye area. Wash away with warm water. Use daily for best results. Avoid direct contact with eyes. Price: £4.95

I am so so happy with this exfoliating product, finally a product I can use daily and isn't too harsh on my skin. I use this just before I go to bed to wash off my make up. The beads are really gentle and held in a lovely gel formula that gives the skin just the right amount of scrub that it needs. It leaves the skin smooth and clean ready for my night moisturiser.  

Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash* Morning Clear is an exceptional soap-free cleansing wash that removes all dirt, oil and make-up from your face without stripping or drying the skin. So, instead of your skin feeling tight or dry after washing, Morning Clear’s pH-balanced, 15% moisturising formula leaves your skin feeling beautifully soft, deeply cleansed and refreshed. Harmonising natural actives – active ingredients may blossom and elderflower purify and decongest the skin, keeping oiliness in check and helping prevent spot formation. Natural sugar moisturisers ensure skin is not stripped or dried out. Cocoa seed butter nourishes and sweet almond oil softens. Orange blossom and raspberry tone pores and refresh skin. Skin is left feeling clear and radiant. Price £4.95. 
This is a truly amazing product. I never used to wash my face in the morning but after using this, I can totally see why I should of been! It makes me face incredibly smooth and makes my make up application so much easier. I will be repurchasing this for a long time I can tell!

Amie Cooling Clay Mask* Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask is a wonderfully refreshing deep-cleansing treatment that draws out deep-seated dirt and impurities while soaking up excess oil. It is excellent for clearing and helping prevent blemishes. The harmonising natural active fruit and botanical ingredients in Spring Clean work with your skin, not against it. Key natural active ingredients such as French White Clay will effortlessly absorb excess oil, dirt, toxins, and other impurities without removing the skin’s natural oils, while simultaneously exfoliating and improving circulation. Natural Zinc Oxide is an excellent antibacterial, helping to clear and prevent blemishes. Soothing, softening Lime Butter tones the skin and helps shrink pores while Organic Peppermint refreshes, cools and soothes, creating a healthy, glowing complexion. 
This product is also now a new staple in my skincare routine. I use it about 3 times a week, or when I just feel in the mood for a mask. I have a lot of face masks but they're a bit of a hassle as I never use the full sachet and then I'm left with half a face mask in a sticky packet on the side. No problem of that with this product, simply squeeze out the amount I want, use it and then I can just put the tube back in the cupboard. It smells amazing, so minty and refreshing and dries quickly so I don't have to wait for ages before I can wash it off. I would say this has had a big role in keeping my skin clear. I currently only have one (touch wood) active blemish.. the rest of my skin is smooth with just my acne scars making my face looks a bit odd ha. Big thumbs up from me on this product!! 

Amie Skin Shield Daily Moisturiser SPF15.  Skin Shield Daily Moisturiser SPF15 is a high performance daily hydrating lotion that uses mineral sunscreens to give broad-spectrum UVA & UVB protection from the damaging and ageing effects of the sun. Super anti-oxidant rich fruits, Kakadu Plum, Blueberry and Vitamins A & E all help shield your skin against environmental damage and premature skin ageing by combating the harmful effects of free radicals. Skin conditioning sunflower and multi-vitamins keep skin soft and nourished.
I was so impressed with the other three Amie products that I picked up this moisturiser in Tesco to complete my set. I'm still unsure about this one. It seems to have a different reaction with my foundation / BB cream. I think I'm being too impatient and not waiting for it to sink in. It applies to the skin like a sun cream would, leaving a slight white colour until it's sunk in, and after that leaves the face slightly tacky and I've found that it makes my BB cream last longer on my skin which is a bonus. I don't use it every day but I am impressed.
Over all I literally have no bad words to say about any of these products and am thoroughly happy and surprised by the results I've had. If you suffer from break outs, I totally recommend you give these a go!  

What do you think? Do you use Amie products?
