Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash

I’ve been using Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash for quite a while now. It’s not a brand I had tried before but I wanted face wipes for my hospital bag so I picked up Amie’s version and thought I’d give the face wash a go too. What drew me to this facial wash is the fact that it’s soap-free. My skin’s been a bit chaotic with pregnancy and I was looking for something gentle to cleanse with in the morning. Amie facial wash is perfect for this. It doesn’t dry the skin or leave it tight and uncomfortable. It leaves my skin soft and clean without feeling like its been stripped.

Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash is creamy and doesn’t lather. I was unsure how well this would rinse because it feels quite thick, but it rinses easily with warm water. There’s no residue left, just soft, cleansed skin. It contains Orange Blossom, Mayblossom, Elderflower and Raspberry. These ingredients give it a very gentle scent that isn’t overwhelming and dissipates on the skin.

This facial wash would work well on most skin types, but is really great for sensitive. I haven’t experienced any irritation or acne due to this product. It’s free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oils and animal extracts, making it suitable for vegetarians and vegans. 

Have you tried this or anything else from this brand?

New Ellis Faas Hot Lips

Oh my, aren't the new Ellis Faas Hot Lips amazing? Full of pigment and non-drying, these look like a lip product to have. My favourites are L404, L405, L406 (which I think I'll treat myself to, well it is near Christmas), L407, and L408. So, nearly them all! They are really lovely though.

Do any of these catch your eye? Have you had a chance to try them out?

For more info and to buy visit Ellis Faas.

Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask

Is it possible to fall in love with a face mask? I suppose Freud would have some interesting, if nonsensical things to say about it. Whatever, I am declaring my love for Lush’s Brazened Honey Fresh Mask. Despite its name it doesn’t overwhelmingly smell of honey, although you can smell it. It smells more, to me anyway, of ginger and lime. It’s a refreshing smell, zingy yet relaxing. I like it. But I like the effects even more. My skin is not at its best at the moment, pregnancy is taking its toll. I did check to see if this product is pregnancy safe and Lush say that all their products are. Skin changes throughout pregnancy though makes your skin sensitive to ingredients that previously were fine. So, if you are pregnant just make sure you won’t have a pregnancy-related reaction. I haven’t had any problems with Brazened Honey. Some face masks can burn or sting my sensitive, combination skin. But this is beautifully soothing. This isn’t the main reason I love this though, the main reason is that it seriously perks my skin up. I actually look like I’ve had a deep, rested sleep ( I haven’t).

Brazened Honey is kept in the fridge so application is cool and soothing. It’s also exfoliating on application give this a good rub on your face before leaving it for 5-10 mins. It hardens up so it’s ideal for another exfoliation on removal. Immediately after removal my skin feels incredibly soft and ahhhh, you know that feeling. It’s properly lovely. So, I highly recommend giving this face mask a go. It definitely perks up tired, dull skin.
