I could sum this review up very quickly and just say 'the best smelling facial scrub EVER', but I know you all love a little more detail than that.
The Amie New Leaf Skin Exfoliating Polish*, is a fantastic, bargain buy from natural skin care brand Amie. Made without parabens, mineral oil, sulfates or animal extracts, Amie products promise great results without a high price tag, and are suitable for all skin types.
The scrub is best used on damp skin, rubbing a small amount gently across the face, avoiding the eye area. I usually do this for around 30 seconds, and then rinse off using warm water.
It leaves my skin feeling bright and exfoliated, but without any dry feeling at all. The mango and cocoa seed butters really do a great job at retaining moisture in the skin, even after a thorough exfoliation.
The best part of the Amie range is the price. Not only are the products really effective, but they are also friendly on the wallet. The New Leaf skin polish is £4.95, and even used twice a week, the tube will last a good few months.
Also in the Amie range are a clay mask (which is equally good), 5 different types of cleanser, and two moisturisers. The entire range cost less than £5 each, so perfect for anyone on a budget, and I think I prefer this scrub to some of the more expensive ones I've tried in the past.
You can find Amie online via their website, or in store at Waitrose and John Lewis.
