I always been very bad with keeping up with skincare, I would usually buy cleansers and moisturizers and use them once a month yup that bad. But since I turned 25 and got officially in my middle 20s (sad times), I decided to try a bit harder. When we grow older our skin stops producing collagen and that usually results to wrinkles. Even though I graduated from university couple of years I still maintain my student lifestyle(some people never grow up,sorry mom) meaning late nights, alcohol and bad nutrients which has affected my skin, not irreversible though. Last month, I went to a beauty event and I have been told by many skincare experts that my skin is very dehydrated and I needed to start using a good moisturizer and well drink more water, unfortunately alcohol doesn't count as a hydrating liquid.
Few weeks ago I decided to give a go to some of the products I have been given which were called "Amie", I wanted to try the Amie products as they are 95% natural and vegan plus they smelled absolutely amazing.
Gently Cleansing Micellar Water £4.95:
As I have previously said I'm pretty bad with skincare so I am guilty of not removing my make-up the night before well not all the time but it happens sometimes. Therefore to clean any traces of make-up i use the mineral water before I use my actual facial wash. Full of naturally derived plant extracts leaves my skin soft clean and absolutely radiant. It smells like roses, ideal for a spring morning.
Morning Clear Facial Wash £4.95:
Since my skin is dehydrated and slightly oily this facial wash is perfect for it. Morning Clear features elder-flower and may-blossom which helps control oiliness and prevents blemishes. I usually use it after the micellar water for deeper cleansing. My skin is left fresh and very soft and ready for the moisturizer.
I have been on the hunt for a good moisturizer for a very long time, I did find some very good products but they will either be too expensive or take too long to dry. I'm definitely not a morning person so I needed a product that does a good job and dries within seconds, so I can put make-up on. The "Amie" moisturizer does exactly that; the natural sugar extracts hydrates the skin while the bilberry and rosehip nourish and softens. The formula is very lightweight and absorbs quickly to leave skin feeling refreshed and radiant.
Exfoliating Polish £5.95:
Leaving in a city like London where the pollution is very high, using a good exfoliator is vital for healthy skin. This is formulated with rice granules that clean the pores and lift away the dirt leaving the skin cleaner, fresher and softer. I absolutely love this cleanser as it made my skin look and feel much cleaner it also smells like mango and who doesn't love mango?!
Overall the Amie products are gentle and very nourishing for skin all the ingredients are absolutely natural and cruelty free. I have seen a change on my skin only few days after using them, therefore I highly recommend them, plus they are affordable with starting price of £1, perfect for broke students and well broke graduates.
