Amie Skincare - Micellar Water | Exfolitaing Polish | Matte Finish Moisturiser*

27 January 2017

I was recently contacted by Amie after they saw my Priceline Skincare Goodie Bag post and happily accepted the opportunity to try out some of their products.

Amie was founded by Fiona Parkhouse, ex-Estee Lauder executive and focuses on using plant based and organic ingredients whenever possible while developing their products, the range features skincare products that are simple yet effective and are free of parabens, petrochemicals, SLS/SLES, genetically modified ingredients and are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Amie Petal Perfect Gently Cleansing Micellar Water*

If you're a makeup wearer you'll already be aware that good skincare starts with making sure the face is clean before going in with your nourishing products so removing makeup properly is a key step. The Amie Micellar Water is gentle yet effective and does a great job when it comes to breaking down a full face of makeup, it has a typical micellar water consistency and has a fresh botanical scent. The bottle contain 200ml of fluid and retails for $8.99 making it an extremely affordable option.

Unfortunately the product doesn't have an easy time breaking down waterproof mascara although this is fairly typical of micellar waters in general, I also feel that the fragrance could be omitted, it isn't stated on the ingredient list exactly what the fragrance is which isn't surprising as the scent would be unique to the brand but if you are typically sensitive to fragrance in products you may want to patch test with this product first.

Amie New Leaf Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish*

Another pivotal step in skincare is exfoliation, the Amie Exfoliating Polish uses rice powder to manually exfoliate the skin while the cream base helps to hydrate and prevents stripping of the skin, this exfoliator smells of mangoes and I actually have to fight the temptation of tasting it every time I use the product, it really does smell simply amazing. The tube contains 100ml of product and retails for $8.99.

I find this exfoliator to be gentle yet effective and while it does seem to leave a slight residue on the skin initially it absorbs very quickly and doesn't leave the skin feeling slick, just a nice, clean, smooth, hydrated feeling. The exfoliating particles are a little sparse but it's not a detriment to the products efficacy, this is a nice one for all skin types and those who don't like over the top skincare.

Amie Morning Dew Matte-Finish Moisturiser*

The final step in skincare should always be hydration and if you have oily skin like me, finding the right type of moisturiser that hydrates without leaving you a slick mess can be difficult. This moisturiser looks like a typical cream when you squeeze it out of the tube but thins out dramatically when it comes in contact with the skin and almost feels like a gel moisturiser, it's hydrating and softening and really does leave a natural matte finish on the skin which makes it perfect for prepping the skin for makeup application. Another great value product containing 100ml for $9.99, this tube will last you months and months!

This product does have a fairly heavy rose scent so that is definitely something to take in to consideration if you aren't a fan of rose scented skincare and it likely wouldn't be suitable for people with extremely dry skin, however the second ingredient is glycerine so it would work for anyone ranging from moderately dry to oily skin, another really lovely and effective product for those who like something a little more simple without the high price tag.
