Amelia Maysun: A Skincare Lover's Dream


Happy Monday my lovelies! Now, today's post is one that I've been genuinely dieing to give you for the last few days but, unfortunately, this week has been an unexpectedly difficult one; I give you my deepest apologies for the lateness. However, what I can tell you is that the products we're about to discuss are (spoiler alert!) definitely worth the wait.

So, a little while ago, I discovered the brand Amelia Maysun on my boy Andrew's Instagram Stories (@boydoesbeauty - if you don't follow him, you've been missing out on life itself) and couldn't help but pop Amelia over a message to see if she'd like me test out and review her products for you lovely bunch. As you guys know, normally, brands tend to contact me in order to initiate a partnership; it's rather rare that I make the first move. However, in Amelia's brand, after visiting the website and reading her story, I recognised a completely different character from the regular "we make products for cash" approach of a lot of widespread brands and the passion she has for her own products and the cosmetics industry in general seeps through each and every word. 


Having graduated from the University of Arts in London with a Master's degree, Amelia has the skills as a cosmetic scientist to formulate products herself in London (which are all vegan friendly and fragrance free, by the way - no matter what your skin type and/or ethical beliefs are, you can use and enjoy her products), employing her own personal knowledge and touch to create formulas that merge the varying strengths of both science and nature, focussing on specific skin concerns. Recently, my skin has been rather up and down (sometimes, I glance in the mirror and see Beyoncé and, other times, a pepperoni pizza) and my complexion somewhat dull - Amelia sent me the ideal duo to correct the situation.


Get Even* - £14.00
To begin, let's start with the first step within my skincare routine, morning and evening: the Get Even daily facial cleanser. There's honestly no other way to express my thoughts and feelings towards this cleanser than to compare them to those that I have for close friends and family members - a bond has definitely developed between myself and the product. With ingredients such as Niacinamide, Lactic acid, Rosehip oil and Licorice root extract aiding towards a brighter and more even complexion, this cleanser has been working its magic on my tired lil' face and making my skin look a lot more awake and healthy. When applied with warm water, this creates an incredible lather, meaning that a little goes a long way (we NEVER waste money here on Marina Writes Life) and my skin is always left feeling soft, supple and squeaky clean yet not stripped bare of all oils, which is amazing. Therefore, if you've been searching for the one then look no further because this will get your skin looking smoother and sexier than you ever knew it could be - I couldn't recommend it more. 


The One* - £28.00
Speaking of the one, as that also happens to be the name of Amelia's serum (what a happy coincidence...), it's definitely worth mentioning what this baby's been doing for my skin as, in the words of most of the youths of this generation, it's been doing bits. A day or two ago, I was asked what foundation and highlighter I was using because of how clear and dewy my bare skin looked and I simply had to credit this gem for the majority of the work - the Vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid and Ginseng root extract (all of which I LOVE as ingredients) have been working in harmony to give me a rather impressive level of radiance. The formula is incredibly lightweight and more gel-like than it is oily (you don't get that uncomfortable sheen after application), which gives it an edge in terms of hydration over a lot of my other serums. So, as you can imagine, given I've been using it in conjunction with the above cleanser, my skin has been looking like a dream

These two products are, of course, available for purchase separately but can also be purchased as a set (click here) for £37.80, as opposed to £42.00, which is honestly a bargain for the quality you're getting here. Personally, I'm insanely proud to have the opportunity to work with and support Amelia Maysun as, not only are the products outstanding but, more importantly, the brand owner is absolutely teeming with passion and dedication for what she does which is a beautiful and unfortunately rare thing to see within an industry of mass production and cheap products. To conclude, I'm 100% convinced that you'll become just as obsessed with Amelia's products as I am upon trying them out for the first time so don't hesitate to head over to the website and find the perfect products for your skin type - you won't regret it for a second. 


Thank you so much for reading today's rather special blog post - apologies for waxing lyrical slightly but these really deserved a spotlight feature for just how effective they are. 

Have you heard of Amelia Maysun? Do you like the look and sound of her products? 

Hit me with your responses and feedback in the comment section below, along with any other contributions you have to make - I can't wait to hear you guys' thought on the post! Also, as usual, don't forget to follow this blog on your way out because, evidently, missing out on future content like this would be nothing but a real shame.

Until next time,

  2. I don't actually do much with my skin (other than, you know, wash it) but the sheer love that shines through this post honestly has me a little tempted. I instantly loved your writing style, and I like all the background you gave on the brand (I am a bit of a fan of ethical stuff). Thank you for sharing!

  37. I was immediately put off by the skin brightening label. Before I make a conclusion, how different is skin brightening to skin lightening? What exactly is skin brightening? All I see in my mind are millions of African women feeling uncomfortable in their skin that they feel the need to lighten their skin. So does this product do that?

    1. Hi Segilola,

      That’s a great question, and a lot of people have the same perception.
      The difference between skin lightening and skin brightening products are very different.
      Skin lightening is reducing pigmentation by using harsh chemicals that inhibit tyrosinase which produces the melanin in our skin to give us our skin colour.
      Skin brightening products simply maintain a bright, radiant complex using safe and tested ingredients like vitamin C, Ginseng extract to gently slough off built up dead skin cells (which gives a dull look to the skin)- it does not lightening the skin As these ingredients cannot travel far enough into the skin to disturb the melanin in your skin.

      I hope this helps you. Feel free to contact me via my website if you have any more questions www.ameliamaysun.com
