Amie Naturally Kind Skincare

aime skincare  (3)

Who loves new skincare? Of course you do! Especially when it's a brand focused not only being budget friendly, but also on giving you skincare products free of all the ingredients you don't want, and is 95% natural. Sounds good right? Amie is just that. It also happens to be a British brand that's recently found a home in Canada at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations. I've been using a few products and have been quite impressed. Read on for more info!

aime skincare- radiant dawn exfoliating daily wash  (4)
 Amie Radiant Dawn Exfoliating Daily Wash* 150ml $10 CAD

Cleanser seems like a good place to start, so let's- Amie Radiant Dawn Exfoliating Daily Wash is gentle, soap free  cleanser that works to deeply cleanse pores and lightly exfoliate to keep skin radiant and smooth. Formulated with green apple, lemon and exfoliating blueberry seeds it cleanses skin thoroughly and is gentle enough to use everyday without leaving skin tight or dry. As I tend to have dull skin that needs a regular exfoliating, I love that this works to keep my skin smooth and bright.

aime skincare- spring clean deep cleansing mask
Amie Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask* 100ml $12 CAD

The first product I tried, and have come to really love- like seriously, I LOVE this- is the Amie Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask. Formulated with peppermint and lime- it also has a fresh minty-lime scent!- it works to deeply cleanse pores while drawing out impurities and oil to prevent blemishes. I love that I can apply this in the morning, give it ten minutes, and rinse it off to reveal invigorated, super clean skin. Oh, and an added bonus- the mask is the prettiest mint green shade!

aime skincare- morning light hydrating moisturizer
Amie Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturizer* 100ml $12 CAD

The Aime (which means 'friend' as in your skin's new bestie) range includes two moisturizers. First up, is the Amie Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturizer. Formulated with rose extract, rosehip seed oil and mallow, it has a fresh, almost fruity rose scent that hydrates skin quite nicely. The moisturizer has a light, almost gel-cream texture that absorbs into skin quickly and completely.

aime skincare- morning dew matte finish misturizer  (5)
Amie Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturizer* 100ml $12 CAD

If a matte finish be what you seek, Amie Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturizer is for you. Formulated with natural plant sugars, rosehip, Vitamin E, and bilberry to nourish and hydrate while absorbing excess oil to control shine. I don't usually have an issue with oiliness, but it is great to have a matte moisturizer for under makeup to reduce any oil that might occur and in turn help prolong the wear of makeup.

Overall, I'm a total fan of Amie! My hands down, must have, favourite is the Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask. It's a simple product, but it just works so well! The Amie range also includes makeup remover, cleansing wipes, toner and an additional face wash, so you're skincare bases are pretty much covered on all fronts. I love that the range works for everyone, as the products are perfect for those just starting their skincare voyage, and those who have been around the block and want a simpler approach. As mentioned, Amie is available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart, and various locations in the US and UK. For more info head to AmieSkincare.com Have you tried this brand or spotted it in stores yet?
