Amie Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser

I am a big fan of the brand Amie and their skincare products, infact many of them have appeared on Beautyqueenuk over the last year.  I like them because they are purse friendly, easy to find on the highstreet and the entire range is suitable for vegetarians and vegans because there contain:

  • No parabens 
  • No mineral-oils 
  • No petrochemicals 
  • No sodium laureth sulphate or sodium lauryl sulphate 
  • No ingredients of Genetically Modified Origin 
  • No animal testing 
  • No animal ingredients 

Fiona Parkhouse, the lady behind the brand used to work for Estee Lauder and she had an idea about making skincare products for her daughter and says the reason she decided to do this was because she wanted something that would "respect her still child-perfect skin but deal with the changes that puberty was starting to bring, such as increased oiliness and breakouts. But I didn't want her using harsh, aggressive chemicals or medicated products. I wanted a natural range that would be gentle yet effective, appealing and affordable". Meaning 'Friend' in French, Amie was born.

The product I have been using for the last month is the Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser which is said to contain a perfect blend of high-quality plant extracts and skin-friendly natural ingredients all designed to keep your skin soft and moisturised, all day long.  Designed for skin which is prone to dryness and in need of gentle, yet effective nourishment, this cream which is really lightweight, absorbs itself into your skin with no problems.

If, like me, you are a fan of rose scented products, you will love this cream. By rose scented I mean a proper rose fragrance and not a chemical smelling one.  As it is dermatologically tested and pH balanced, my skin reacts really well to this cream.  A slight dryness on both cheeks is something I suffer from around certain times of the month, so I need something that is going to add moisture all day long.

The cream itself, which is inside this really pretty pastel pink coloured tube contains:
  • Rosa Canina Fruit Oil – the pressed seed oil extracted from the hips of the rose bush which grows wild in the Southern Andes. Rosehip oil contains a list of active ingredients which are beneficial to skin, as well as a high level of essential fatty acids which help the skin hold moisture and reduce dryness.
  • Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract – an extract from the flowers of the Cabbage Rose, Rosa Centifolia has skin-conditioning and toning effects on the skin.
  • Malva Sylvestris Extract – the flowers of the mallow plant are well-known for their soothing and softening effect on the skin.
I have been absolutely loving this cream and whilst my tube is nowhere near empty, it lasts a really long time, I would defintiely purchase it especially when it costs just £4.95 for a 100ml tube

You can fine Amie products in places like Waitrose or from their own website which you can find HERE

Have you tried these products? have you tried any Amie products?


  1. I love the concept of this range Rachel! My daughter is starting to use skincare products - it sounds ideal for her young skin and such a good price! xx

  2. I love rose-scented products. Amie isn't a brand I've tried much of to be honest, I tried a face mask but that's all x
