amie pure & natural beauty - new leaf and spring clean review


amie a brand that's not really been on my radar until lately when I started trying a couple of products.  amie has been developed for sensitive skin as a gentle and natural solution to balance and control the skin.  One of the things that has particularly attracted me to these products is reading that they don't contain mineral oil.  I have some issues with skin congestion that gives me an uneven, bumpy texture just under the skin mainly on my cheeks, and I've recently been told that using products containing mineral oil could be the cause.  As well as not containing mineral oil, amie products are also free from parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, GMO and animal extracts.  They also contain an average of 95% naturally derived ingredients and are recommended for people with blemish-prone skin.

I've been trying out new leaf and spring clean from the amie range.  *New leaf is a deep cleaning but gentle facial exfoliator.  Much as I'm not into chemical exfoliating, I do still like the satisfying feel of giving your skin a little scrub with a manual exfoliator.  This one's not too rough, but still feels like there are enough grainy bits to get the job done.  This product smells really good too - you can really detect the mango butter.  

*Spring clean is a clay mask for drawing out impurities, deep cleansing and drawing out excess oil.  The mask contains peppermint, clay and lime butter and it smells really limey when you use it.  It's quite a thick consistency, so you don't need much to get a full coverage on the face.  The mask dries on the skin as it's a clay mask, but not to a super tight finish that cracks when you smile.  It doesn't feel uncomfortable and when I wash this off my skin feels really clean and fresh.  

I'm really impressed with these products considering the low price point of £4.95 each for 75ml of product.  You can find amie at Boots and direct from amieskincare.com 

Have you tried amie before?

  2. I tried the Amie Spring Clean Mask years ago, but then it seemed to drop off of the planet! So glad it's come back again and available at Boots because I remember loving it when I tried it before.
    Thanks for the post and letting me know it's back : ) I shall certainly pick some up.

  3. I tried the Spring Clean mask, and I loved everything about it except it felt really uncomfortable on my face, like it was too cold and my skin reacted a little to it. The exfoliator sounds great though :)

    1. Oh no, that's a shame - it was fine on me. There must be an ingredient your skin doesn't like maybe?
