Mon Amie

Our family isn't flooded with teenagers but they do crop up every now and again and they are usually girls. I know I should know what to get them being a girl myself, but I don't. I just don't know what's cool when you are 14 anymore. Help is at hand though. Designed by an ex-Estee Lauder exectuive, Fiona Parkhouse, who was tired of not being able to find suitable, affordable skin care for her daughter Amie products are the perfect solution

Amie products are designed specifically for young skin (teenagers to early twenties) and I've been trying out the Perfect Beauty Christmas Gift Set on my tough old 26 yr old skin for the last couple of weeks and I'm impressed. Winter can leave your skin dull, dry and dehydrated whatever age you are but a lot of products out there can be harsh on skin and those that aren't don't really do anything. Free from harmful chemicals and parabans this luxurious natural skin care range does the job without ruining the skin.

The set comes in a reusable cosmetic bag (always handy) and contains full size - Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturiser, Bright Eyes Very Gentle Eye Make Up Remover, New Leaf Skin Exfoliating Polish, Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash and Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask sachet.

I've tried them all! I was really impressed with the Bright Eyes eye make up remover. I wear a lot of black eyeliner which most removers I've tried fail to get off completely. I was expecting this to be a bit of a failure when faced with the task of removing my eye make up but it worked! It was great and didn't leave the sensitive skin around my eyes feeling dried out and scrubbed. I would definitely use this again (I'm sure 26 counts as early twenties still).

I was intrigued by the Morning Dew matte finish moisturiser. Matte Finish? Really? Yes really. To me matte finish kind of implied drying but not only does it give great moisture the matte finish is great as a base for applying make up meaning you don't need to apply as much foundation or powder which is a win for everyone. It's awful seeing young girls with a mask of make up.

I used the Morning Clear facial wash this morning before going to see the Mumma B (the sternest of critics!) and the first thing she said to me was how great my skin was looking. Again I'm so used to products drying my skin out but this left it feeling smooth and soft and unabused. As does the New Leaf exfoliator - great for making sure your skin is completely clean and clear of any traces of make up.

I could rave about these products all day - I wish they'd be around when I was younger. Nobody seems to question what products you buy when you are a teenager - I'm assuming this is still the case - so to have something not only specifically for young skin but that actually work is wonderful. Available here for only £19.95 I would recommend this as a great Christmas present for the difficult-to-buy for young girl in your life xx
