I’m a big fan of the Amie clay masks, so enter the Amie Morning Dew Matte-Finish Moisturiser. The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream (review here) or the Olay Beauty Fluid moisturisers are my morning moisturisers of choice, so I was eager to see how this Amie equivalent would be in comparison. The Amie moisturiser is a fraction of the price at only £4.95, half the price of The Body Shop one and containing double the quantity of product too!
It claims to give you the softest, dewiest, shine free skin, whilst remaining oil-free It also contains all organic and natural ingredients, such as harmonising natural extracts like vitamin E, bilberry and rosehip.
I have combination/oily skin, so mattifying moisturisers are perfect for me, so I had high hopes! The moisturiser is slightly yellow toned, although it blends out into the skin just fine. Instantly my skin looked less shiny and it looked prepped for foundation. The first few times I used this, I made the mistake of using my The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser on top (link here) and after I applied foundation on top of these two layers, it just crumbled off and it put me off a while until I realised my mistake! However, once i started using it again alone, it was just perfect! Just a little side note, it does have a slight scent, a very, very natural, subtle one.
After my initial mishap with this product, it turned out to be lovely, fresh and gave my skin a perfect day time glow. This 100ml tube retails for £4.95 and is such a great price!
Have any of you tried this moisturiser, or any other Amie products? Whats your favourite day time moisturiser?
