A lovely skin care duo from Amie.

Amie Skin Shield Daily Moisturiser SPF 15♦ (£5.95) // Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask♦ (£4.95 or £1.50 for 3 sachets)
A few years ago I was a little bit of a skin care snob, I didn't think that affordable skin care products were anything special, but now I know that I was wrong. Amie is a brand I have recently been introduced to, their products are affordable but they're also incredibly lovely and packed full of nice ingredients that are kind to the skin. Amie doesn't test on animals or use any parabens, mineral oil or sulphates in their products, which is something I'm beginning to look for a lot more in the products I choose to use.

Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask*
Clay masks are my favourite for when my skin isn't looking its best and I have a few blemishes. Once or twice a week I've been putting a little of this on, leaving for 10 minutes before washing it off and my skin is left feeling super clean but not dry or tight, which is why I like this mask so much. Very often clay masks can feel like they're stripping my skin of all moisture, which is something I don't like and although my skin is never particularly oily, this doesn't leave my dry areas feeling any worse.

Scent wise this really reminds me of a twister ice lolly (whether that's just because as I type this it's super hot, I'm not sure), I think it's the lime and I really like it. It's nothing overpowering or too super sweet. This has become one of my go-to masks in recent weeks, partly because it's really cooling, which feels SO good when it's so warm. On blemishes this isn't a complete miracle worker, but it does help to soothe and helps to really deep cleanse the area, which is good enough for me!

Overall I'm really impressed and I love that this is really affordable. A 75ml tube retails for £4.95 or £1.50 for 3 sachets, so you can try before committing to the full size. I will absolutely be purchasing a new tube of this when mine runs out, I think it's one of those products that's great to have in your skin care stash for when you need it!

Amie Skin Shield Daily moisturiser with SPF 15*
I'm always on the lookout for a good moisturiser and although this one isn't quite right for my skin type, I wanted to mention it because I do think it's a lovely product. This promises to hydrate while being gentle to the skin and offering broad spectrum protection. Like the clay mask, this is full of really lovely ingredients, with anti-oxidants helping to shield the skin against environmental damage.

My skin is very dry and dehydrated so for me, this doesn't quite offer enough hydration on its own. I've been using a hydrating serum underneath in combination with this and I've found it makes a really beautiful base for make up as it really sinks in and doesn't leave any residue that could make your make up slide around throughout the day. So if you like a moisturiser that offers hydration without leaving your skin feel oily, this could be the one for you! My mama has already sent me out to purchase one for her and she loves it. I do wish it contained a little more than SPF 15, for the height of summer I don't think that's quite enough, but I'm glad it does offer some protection.

Again, this is really affordable with 75ml retailing for £5.95. While this won't be one I will purchase for myself as it's not quite moisturising enough, it's one I will be purchasing again in the future for my Mama once she's finished her tube because it works really well for her!

Have you ever tried any Amie products before?

  1. I've tried a sachet of the clay mask and I keep meaning to buy the full version! It really is lovely :)
    I like that the moisturizer has SPF, but I agree I need a higher level of sun protection - especially in the current weather!

  16. I think I'll look into these - I have the exfoliator which I got in a beauteco box and it's been really good for my skin and smells very pretty so I've been thinking about trying some of their other things.

  20. I'm so anxious to try this Amie Cooling Clay Mask. I've read nothing but positive reviews thus far.

    I wasn't aware it contained lime extracts. It must smell quite nice and refreshing at the moment. I've never tried a clay mask so and it seems like a good introduction to them.
