Review: Amie Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser*

Recently I was kindly sent a tube of Amie's Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser* to try out and review; the only Amie product I've previously tried was their Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask, which I really liked, so I was keen to try out some more of the range. Presented in a pretty pale-pink plastic tube with a flip cap, Amie have this to say about their Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser: "Amie's gentle and effective formulas are your skin's best friend; bursting with high-quality naturally derived plant extracts that work in complete harmony with your skin to help keep it clear, soft and radiant. Dermatologically tested • pH-balanced • free from parabens, mineral oils, petrochemicals & animal extracts • suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Morning Light Hydrating Moisturiser is rich in rose extract, rose hip oil and mallow to help keep skin soft, hydrated and nourished all day long. To use: After cleansing, smooth onto skin."

Amie Morning Light Review
The moisturiser is easy to squeeze from the tube, with a large pea-sized amount being sufficient for the face and neck; the huge 100ml tube will last ages when you need so little per application! I find the scent of the product quite unpleasant, to me it smells like white wine and I'm really not a wine lover, so I'm pretty glad that the scent fades quickly and doesn't linger after application. The cream massages in quickly and easily, and my skin is left feeling smooth and hydrated but not sticky; rather, it's ever so slightly matte, which I really like. Over the last few weeks while I've been using it, I haven't really noticed any changes in my skin; I'm still getting a few blemishes, but I don't think there are any more or less of them, and my skin is still decidedly on the oily side. However, this is still a lovely moisturiser especially for those on a budget, and you could definitely do much worse; if your skin leans more towards normal or dry than oily/blemish-prone like mine, I can imagine this being pretty perfect! This doesn't contain an SPF so you'll still need to apply sun protection to keep your skin safe.
Amie Morning Light Moisturiser
Amie's Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser is priced at a bargainous £4.95 for a 100ml tube, and is available from Waitrose or CutECOsmetics in the UK. I don't see myself repurchasing this, mainly because I feel my skin could benefit more from a moisturiser than it does from this, but it is a product I'd recommend for those looking for a good quality moisturiser on a budget, especially if you don't have any particular skincare concerns to address.

    1. I imagine combination skin can be really tricky to take care of! I just don't think it suited my skin very well xo

    1. It really is, central heating and cold air do not make for happy skin! xo

  4. I've tried this moisturiser too and I didn't really like it. I hated the fact that it didn't have an SPF. Great review :)

    1. I'd definitely prefer an SPF, too - I'm hopeless at remembering otherwise!! xo

  5. I love Amie's Morning Dew moisturiser; the scent is gorgeous and it's really hydrating, although I think it's best suited to the Winter months as it is a little heavy during Summer. I recently began using their Skin Shield SPF15 moisturiser, mainly with my upcoming holiday in mind, and I'm liking it too although it can be a little difficult to blend in and I'm wondering whether it will provide enough hydration for my skin during Winter. I've not tried Morning Light yet so perhaps it will prove to be an all-year-round one? I highly recommend Amie products and they are such great value. xxx

    1. I really do like Amie products, especially for the price - I think I need to try some of their other moisturisers just to find one that suits my skintype :) xo

    1. I've not tried Morning Dew, I'm definitely going to look into Amie's moisturiser range a bit more though :) xo

  7. Is it bad that the fact it smells like wine is very appealing to me? Interesting and honest review. Thanks.

  8. You have an oily skin right? And the fact that this cream is for hydrating, no wonder it didn't work on you. :) Anyway, I do love creams. I have a dry skin so they're really a must to me. hihi

    1. Oily skin needs hydration too though! It's not that it doesn't work, more that I don't think it suits my skin quite as well as it could. xo

  9. Sounds good! I have hard time finding a cream that suits my oily skin. Thanks for sharing! xo's

  10. I think this sounds like it would be more suited to someone with a normal skin type/dry skin so may not right for me. Sounds good though x

    1. Yeah it's maybe not the best-suited product for us oily-skinned girls! xo

  12. I've never tried anything by Amie before, but I'm really glad you did an honest review! The white wine scent would probably put me off a bit too in all honesty x
