Amie Perfect Beauty Giftset

Sunday, 11 August 2013

I only recently discovered the natural skincare brand Amie and I'm so glad I did. As soon as I saw the packaging and heard about the brand's philosophy I was sold; cutesy packaging, totally natural and free from harsh chemicals - hooray! 

As you probably know if you're a regular reader of my blog, I have a big thing for skincare, but especially cheap skincare. I truly believe if a product works for me it really shouldn't matter what the price tag is - that goes for cheap and expensive things. I do, however, love hunting out a good skincare bargain and can regularly be seen perusing the Superdrug skincare aisle. I've tried both high-end and cheaper skincare products in the past and most certainly don't think cheap means bad - on the contrary, the majority of 'drugstore' skincare products I've tried have blown me away. It's just a case of choosing the right ones! 

Which leads me on to Amie. This exciting brand has a big range of skincare products targeted at predominantly young skin. I love that they've recognised that younger skin shouldn't be plastered in all these harsh chemicals, and have solved that problem by including only natural ingredients. Growing up I felt surrounded by skincare products that stung and dried out my skin, making it tight and sore, and only making my acne worse. Amie is nothing like those brands and is totally gentle on the skin - I definitely wish it had been around when I was a teen!

I was recently sent their Perfect Beauty Giftset to give me a chance to try out a few of their best-selling products for myself. The kit is £19.95 and features four products, packaged in a cute see-through wash bag. They've kept the packaging cute whilst in-keeping with the natural theme, and the products certainly look pretty on my bathroom shelf. I love every single product in this set. I've been using the cleanser religiously since I got it and it's made a big difference to my skin, and is so nice and gentle on my skin. The exfoliator is great and thoroughly cleansing and removing the dirt from my pores, whilst being soothing. I've been using the eye makeup remover every night for a few months now and it works brilliantly, and I still have loads left in the bottle. I've not used the moisturiser too much as I've had so many to try but the times I have tried it I've been very impressed! It gives a matte-finish which is always what I look for in a moisturiser.

Overall I am so impressed with these products and will definitely be repurchasing them when they run out. I particularly love the cleanser as it's made a big difference to my skin. I think this kit is ideal for oily/acne-prone skins and well worth the price!
