Facemask Friday

Facemask Friday – Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask

September 20, 2013

Amie spring clean clay face mask


My collection of face-masks is quickly overwhelming the storage space I have set aside for them, so in an attempt to start using them more often (I’m sure my skin will thank me!) I’ve decided to try a different one every Friday to review for you all!

First up is the Amie SPRING CLEAN Cooling Clay Mask. I received this in my last Latest in Beauty Little Beauty Box (which Amie reviewed here).

I’ve been eager to try out this brand for a while, but never quite got around to it. I love their natural and cruelty free ethos, and have seen many positive reviews around the beauty-blog-o-sphere.

From the second I opened it I was in love with the fresh and natural peppermint scent. A lot of facemasks promise a cooling and refreshing sensation, but this really made my skin tingle pleasantly!

It took slightly longer than the ten minutes promised to dry, but I did apply it rather thickly.

It came off easily in the shower, with none of the clinging-to-eyebrows-malarkey you sometimes get, and I have to say my skin is looking much brighter, clearer and refreshed.

If the rest of Amie’s products are as good as this consider me sold!

Available from Boots for £4.95 – 70ml

Direct from Amie £1.50 for 3 x 10ml

Totally hellbent for falling in love with a new brand!

Latest in beauty samples

lib samples boxSo far I’ve done a really good job of resisting the Latest in Beauty little beauty boxes. Unfortunately, when it comes to having shiny things pushed through the letter box, resistance is futile.

This is my first and probably not my last, but my main reason for indulging was the Amie face mask. I keep seeing this brand everywhere, and I think it’s only right that I give something that has the same name as me a whirl! Plus it’s not often I see other people spelling my name correctly.

I now have the following to look forward to:

  • Aveda invati solutions for thinning hair – Shampoo & Conditioner
  • TRESemmé split mend – Shampoo, Conditioner & leave in treatment
  • Amie cooling clay mask

More updates on the Amie mask when I try this out!

The little beauty box can be purchased for a lovely £1.50 that is added onto your phone bill. You get a choice of three products, my Aveda product was a “mystery sample” since I like to live on the edge a little.


Totally hellbent for products that have my name on it!
