Amie Petal Perfect 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner Review *16:29
A couple of weeks ago a lovely lady called Rachel from cutecosmetics contacted me to test some of Amie skincare range that was soon to release onto the www.cutecosmetics.co.uk website. Which I must say is worth checking out if you like organic products or want to try the EOS lipbalms, OCC Lip Tars or Butter London Polishes as they stock these on the site!
One of the products she sent me was this Petal Perfect 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner.This product is different to anything I have tried before. Although I have tried 2 in 1 cleansers before, this product is different as it is much more like a toner in its runny liquid consistency. It pours out onto your cotton pad like a toner yet on the skin feels like a cleansing lotion.
Amie advises to apply to a cotton pad and smooth across the face. Repeating until completely clean. I personally find with this, a large cotton wool pad, possibly folded in half, works best.
The scent of the product is a very clean and plain scent, very unobtrusive.
When using the cleanser I find that the cleanser spreads easily around the face to ‘loosen’ the makeup/dirt then you can buff in the cotton wool to better remove the makeup. I find that to remove what I feel is all of my makeup I have to repeat this process twice.
Although this product doesn’t irritate the skin on my face, I wouldn’t recommend this on the eyes as it doesn’t easily remove mascara and would irritate your eyes scrubbing to remove eye makeup with this.
After using this I find that my skin feels smooth, moisturiser and surprisingly not tight, like many other skincare products. I do find, that many oilier skin tones may not like, that it leaves a residue on the skin after using it. However, with dry/normal skin this does not bother me. However I find that when following with the Amie moisturiser this residue somehow disappears.
Overall I feel that this product is perfect for removing light faces of makeup or for morning cleansing but this product may struggle with heavier faces of makeup. I am yet to see if this product does any wonders for my skin or breaks me out, so I will let you know!
