What amie says:
- Matte-Finish Moisturiser
- For the softest, dewiest shine free skin
- 90.8% natural ingredients
- Even if you have oily skin, you still need a moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin.
Morning Dew is a really light daily moisturiser that’s totally mineral oil-free and parabens-free. Quickly and easily absorbed into the skin, it gives skin all the hydration it needs while controlling shine and leaving a smooth, matte finish that’s a perfect base for make-up or facing the day or night ‘au naturel’!
Harmonising natural actives – organic rosehip and bilberry nourish, natural plant sugars hydrate and Vitamin E acts as an anti-oxidant protecting against sun damage and pollution. Lemon Fruit Extract acts as an effective antiseptic whilst Orange Blossom is an excellent skin clarifying agent, helping to remove excess sebum and keep oily skin clear.
What I say:
I really enjoyed using this product. I find it gives my skin enough moisture throughout the day without me looking greasy or oily at all. It works very well under makeup for exactly that reason. The cream is very affordable and lasted me for ages (I actually just checked on the blog and it seems I bought it in August 2013!). I bought mine at a local Waitrose.

IN: Terra Naturi – Reichhaltige Tagescreme Wildrose & Ginkgo (€ 3,25/50ml)
What Terra Naturi says:
The Terra Naturi rich day cream has been specially developed for dry skin over 30. It provides the skin the daily rich care it needs. Soy, jojoba, sesame, olive and wild rose oil as well as shea butter are rich in essential fatty acids that nourish the skin soft and supple and protect it from drying out. Hyaluronic acid binds moisture and leaves the skin appear firmer. Evening primrose oil has a high content of gamma-linolenic acid. This helps to build the lipid mantle of the skin and increases the resistance power of the skin. Ginkgo extract counteracts the light-induced skin aging.
What I say:
I like the smell of roses and that it seems to moisturise my face very well. I can say that the consistency is very thick in comparison to the amie product and it takes a bit longer to spread it over my face and to sink in properly. If you wonder why there is a white bit of paper on the packaging, that was my mum. I told her I don’t want to use a product for skin over 30 as it would make me feel old, so she simply covered that part on the packaging. 😀
