Amie Skincare was created by Ex Estee Lauder Marketing Executive, Fiona Parkhouse. Fiona was inspired by her daughters struggle to find gentle but affective and affordable products for her teenage skin.

I have been using the Amie range on and off for the last month or so, I get such a back log and many request to test out products, so please bare with me :). Heres what I thought of the range:

Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask- Formulated with white clay which helps to draw out deep-set impurities , control oil and blemishes, this fruity smelling mask really is a treat!! Active ingredients include Organic Peppermint, Lime Butter and Natural Zinc Oxide. I use this mask at least twice a week. It smells like heaven (a smell that reminds me of Lime starburst sweets) the mask is very cooling almost icey, being a clay mask this mask does dry, but doesn’t completely dry out like many other masks. Leave on for 10-15 mins and then rinse off with warm water, your skin is left clean, plump and silky smooth :).  RRP £4.95

Amie Bright Eyes Very Gentle Eye Make-up Remover- 100% oil free this gentle makeup remover removes even the toughest of eye makeup and mascara. Key ingredients include Meadow Flower and Chamomile to soothe and decongest, Grape Water to calm and cleanse and cooling cucumber to hydrate, soften and refresh. I like to apply this to two pieces of cotton pads and allow it to sit on the eyes for around 30 secs, this really allows the makeup to be melted but also provides a nice cooling mask for tired eyes. RRP £4.75

Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash- A delicate morning face wash which doesn’t leave your skin dry and stripped like most products. Morning Clear’s soap free formula workS in harmony with skin, not against it. Key ingredients include: Mayblossom known for its anti-bacterial action, Elderflower which helps to purify and decongest pores and Orange Blossom to control sebum production. This face wash is refreshing and does the job, your skin feels awake and clean!! RRP- £4.95

Amie Morning Dew Matte-finish Moisturiser- A matte moisturiser which leave skin hydrated and shine free. Key ingredients include: Organic Rosehip  to moisturise, Bilberry for Sebum control and Orange Blossom to clarify and control oily skin. Great moisturiser for oily skin types. A little goes a long way as with oily skin you do not need to use too much. RRP £4.95

Amie New Leaf Exfoliating Polish-  A moiturising but gentle face exfoliator which contains Bamboo beads and Jojoba Beads that gently cleanse deep into the pores whist smoothing away the dead skin cells left on the surface. Say hello to a non dull complexion with this amazing uplifting exfoliator. Packed with a moisturiser so it doesn’t dry out the skin. Key ingredients include: Mango seed and Cocoa seed which softens and moisturises the skin and Orange Blossom to clarify and control oily and congested skin. I recommend to use this product at least twice a week to see the maximum benefits. Apply on damp skin using gentle circular movements. RRP £4.75

The Amie skincare range is a brilliant range which uses skin friendly ingredients. It’s an amazing range for young skin and an easy range for those wanting to maintain healthy skin. I would recommend that all mothers buy this range for their teenagers, the price is very reasonable for the quality you receive.

Please do let me know if you test out the range, I would love feedback on how you got on. If you are already a user of the brand let me know your thoughts. 😉

Amie skincare is available to buy at John Lewis, Waitrose, Superdrugs and Boots. Also available at www.amieskincare.com

I received the ‘Cupcake’ mask from Lush yesterday and seen as though it has a 3 week shelf life  as it is freshly made I had myself a little pampering session with it.

The smell is gorgeous, I just wanted to eat it. It contains ingredients such as Rhassoul Mud which has a natural foaming, de-greasing action which acts as a natural shampoo to cleanse the skin and Cocoa powder and spearmint which both work in harmony with the Rhassoul Mud to remove dirt and leave your skin feeling refreshed.

The product needs to be kept refrigerated. Apply evenly to the face and rinse of after 10 minutes. If you don’t like mess then this mask is not for you. The mask dries very quickly so when you are rinsing it off it gets all yucky and peels off and your bathroom will be a n a bit of a state afterwards. The texture of the mask is bitty almost like you have crush a fruit and nut chocolate bar and put it on your face. After rinsing the mask off you do notice how smooth your face looks. I would recommend this mask for teenage skin as it really helps to rid excess oil and helps  with break outs. In all I think its worth the fuss and mess, the results are great 🙂

Lush Cupcake – £4.95 (Make sure you keep this in the fridge and please not it only has a 3 week shelf life) www.lush.co.uk
