      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Something I wouldn't repurchase

      This Cleanser/Toner comes is a simple clear 200ml bottle, that allows you to see the product inside and retails for just under a fiver from supermarkets, boots or superdrug.

      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 just using to refresh a clean face or removing light faces of makeup or for morning cleansing but this product struggles to remove heavier faces of makeup. I am yet to see if this product does any wonders for my skin or breaks me out however I can't say it has done anything spectacular. Unfortunately this isn't something i'd rush to repurchase.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great for normal/dry skinned people.

      After trying the Amie facial wash with no success, I decided to give this a go. I picked it up in Boots for £3.99 which I think is pretty decent value considering I've had it for a few months and am just half way through.

      Unfortunately I can't tell you much about the packaging as it cracked after I dropped it from great heights in my bathroom (it's a long story but don't try attacking spiders with your bottle of cleanser.) However I did manage to transfer the contents that didn't leak into a different container.

      The liquid itself is a pretty pinky/lilac colour. It is quite thin in consistency so be careful when applying it to the pad of cotton wool if you don't want a mess all over your floor. The cleanser has a beautiful, floral scent which will sadly begin to fade after you have cleansed your face.

      I remember the packaging advising you to put some of the liquid onto a pad of cotton wool and then sweep over face to remove dirt and makeup.

      The product is described as a two in one cleanser and toner, however I don't know how this works as supposedly toner should remove any excess cleanser...

      Anyway, after sweeping this across my face I felt absoloutely no itching, stinging or iritation. Which is a surprise as I have eczema and severly dry skin. You may wonder then, why I even need a cleanser. This is because I get occasional outbreaks around the sides of my nose.

      Surprise, surprise, after I've finished, any blemishes haven't miraculously dissapeared. I have noticed however, that after a while of using this cleanser I do have noticably less spots. The overall condition of my skin has also improved and it is generally smoother and less dry.

      As I have heard other people say, this cleanser can leave your face looking slightly shiny as it isn't one that should be washed off. However as I have dry skin and use a mattifying moisturiser, this is never a problem for me although I think this is probably something best avoided by people with oily skin as it might make it even oilier.

      This cleanser can also remove makeup pretty well so is a great time saver. I would however advise you to use a separate eye makeup remover if you have sensitive skin as this did sting a bit when I tried to remove eyeshadow.

      The other great time saver with this product is the fact that it can be applied with a pad of cotton wool so there's no hassle with water and everything. However, if you happen to be a hippie you may be annoyed that everytime you cleanse your face you are killing a polar bear by throwing away the cotton wool...So either don't wash your face, forget about polar bears or get a new cleanser that you have to use water with (but then you're wasting water and a penguin might drop dead.)

      Overall, this is a great cleanser ideal for those with dry/normal skin who still want to be hygienic.
      Wow I just realised I must like the word 'however'...
