My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Amie Naturally Kind Facial Wash

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Sensitivity is a big issue for me, my skin itches when water filtration is too strong, or not strong enough, I get dry skin, it loses it's colour when I'm sick or stressed, and the winter is not my faces friend. Canada, especially Ontario, and where I live is part of the "Snow Belt" Yes that's a thing so the wind is cold, the sun shines off the snow, it's just not nice. 

A month ago, the people at Amie offered to let me try their morning clear purifying facial wash. Their motto is Naturally Kind and it promises to be a moisturizing facial wash for clear soft skin. The brand was designed with young skin in mind and this specific product is free of paragons, sulphates, mineral oils, petrochemicals and animal extracts, it is also soap free. For a "cleanser" that doesn't contain soap, I was slightly sceptical about it. Needless to say it said moisturizing and I had to try it. 

The product itself comes out of the bottle really thick, very creamy, almost like a lotion, you massage it into your skin and rinse away with warm water, and the effect is almost instantaneous, my skin felt soft, it felt clean, it felt bright, it didn't sting or tingle. This stuff does what it says it will. My face has never felt so clean with so little effort put in, I didn't use a scrubber, nothing but my fingertips and it feels great! 

Not only am I happy with the results of this product but the price is affordable as well. It retails for $10.00 the only snag is I'm not sure if you can find it in Canada, I could not find this specific one on Amazon either, however you can buy directly from the website.
