Amie Skincare - for young, oily/combination skin

The skincare created by a mother especially for complicated, teenage skin just cannot go wrong! It is obviously free from all the harsh chemical nasties and is naturally sourced where possible, making it as simple as it can be for skin that's changing constantly.

I quite like how the range is priced so sensibly and quite reasonably than other skincare giants in drugstores. Being in school, college or at your very first internship, no one wants to spend a fortune on skin care, I know I sure didn't. I have tried drugstores own brand products as well which are priced reasonably but found this worked better in comparison.

Claiming that its particularly formulated for oily-combination skin type is a huge claim in its own as it reduces the task of trial and error. The two Moisturisers in Amie are simply all one needs, one for slightly more mature skin the 20's with the added SPF and all that jazz and a matte finish one with anti bacterial properties for young skin in teens. Both of them sink into the skin providing just the right amount of hydration, keeping oil and bay and leaving skin velvety soft without any greasy residue.

I particularly liked the Exfoliator and the Creamy Face Wash though. This is a soap free, moisturising one with cocoa butter and almond oil to restore stripped skin of its moisture alongside elderflower and orange blossom to decongest and tone the skin. The thick texture is reminiscent of the hot cloth cleanser formulas but is less heavy than them and is great for a morning pick me up. The Radiant Dawn Exfoliator is absolutely refreshing with Blueberry seed and non abrasive micro beads that get rid of all the make-up in the evening and leave skin supple and refreshed.

I cannot stand oily cleansers for the eyes so the Bright Eyes one by Amie is my current favourite. It gets everything off without much hassle, be it eye liner, mascara of eye shadow. I found it didn't work very well with water proof mascara but that's mascara's for you!

Overall, I'm impressed with the simplicity and effectiveness of Amie Skincare and you shall be seeing these products in monthly favourite posts to come as well.
