ArtofOrganics-AmlyBotanicals

I can’t believe it’s very nearly the end of the 2018….no no no not panicking. At. All. #pantsonfire.  On the plus side, another month going by means another Art of Organics clean beauty box drop – hurrah!

Art of Organics keep knocking it out of the park with their selections every month and November is no exception. This month is dedicated to the English artisan skincare brand, Amly, based in rural Sussex. The accompanying print also has a local connection. Designed by Molly Mahon, also based in Sussex, it is inspired by forest nearby.

Purveyors of ‘botanical alchemy’ Amly is all about melding traditional herbalism and botanical knowledge with the latest scientific research to create potent skin potions and lotions for modern living. Packaging is in protective miron glass and boxes used are recyclable and biodegradable.

Detox & Protect with Amly

This month’s collection from AMLY  focuses on purifying and anti-stress. These clarifying and harmonizing products heighten the skin’s resilience to environmental and digital pollution, while boosting collagen and enhancing hydration.

The two products in this month’s Art of Organics clean beauty box – Amly’s City Screen and Digital Detox are a grime fighting duo with my name all over them. Like most of us the vast majority of my day, is spent glued to some digital screen or another. And of course I also live in beautiful but filthy London – on several occasions this year our air pollution levels have passed Beijing and we surpassed the toxic air limits for the year in February! So anything that is going to help deal I’m in.

Amly Digital Detox Silver Rich Facial Mist (30ml, RRP £30)

Designed to tackle environmental, blue light and digital pollution, this mist includes mineral rich spring water sourced from beneath Amly’s own organic meadow. As well as a host of ingredients including purifying magnesium salts, marine actives and ginseng to help concentration, ylang ylang to help de-stress. This is “wakey wakey’ in spritz form. I use as a toner on days when I’m heading in to Central London, keep the bottle on my desk to use when I need to revive the spirits after long stretches at the screen and it’s also handy to keep in the handbag on my travels. In short this is a mist doing the most!

Amly City Screen Face Serum (30ml, RRP £62)

The Amly City Screen serum is designed to protect and boost skin’s resilience to pollution. Those of use with allergy prone and sensitive skin are particularly affected by pollution particles. City Screen contains a veritable feast of protective and nourishing ingredients include Echinacea, antioxidant rich Gotu Kola and green tea, hydrating squalene, collagen boosting marine compounds, soothing cucumber and aloe vera, and new to me niaouli, a relative to tea tree with antibacterial and purifying properties.  The light lotion texture sinks in to skin leaving it feeling nourished. I like to apply after the mist then layer an oil on top.
