REVIEW: Amarte Skin Care - Love Yourself, Love Your Skin - East Meets West Synergy

I am bubbling over with excitement as I begin this review because I want to convey to you all how totally thrilled I am with Amarte Skin Care products.  It has been well over two months that I have been exclusively using Amarte Skin Care products on my face.  It is the very first time, for as long as I can remember, that I have consistently used the same skin care brand and products on my face for over 2 months.  Usually within that time frame I have at least tried or switched to some other brand or product, but I was so impressed and enamored with this brand and the products that I did not want to stop using them, not even for a day, and means a lot coming from this beauty product loving gal!  I think the Amarte products are outstanding!  Let me introduce this most intriguing company to you:

{Adapted from the Amarte Press Release}

Amarte is a premiere luxury skin care line based on eastern skin care philosophy and western dermatology, designed to cleanse, hydrate, rejuvenate and protect to bring out the clarity, brilliance, and beauty of every woman’s skin. With deference to Korean heritage and philosophy, Amarte is refined for American preferences and employs western elements within eastern structures for a true hybridization and a more thorough skin care experience. Since its Korean debut in 2001, Amarte has been the leading skin care line in Asia and has newly launched in the United States, aiming to provide consumers with the most effective, high quality skin care formulations in perfect East-meets-West synergy. All eight products in the Amarte line are tested, approved and recommended by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Craig Kraffert, President of Amarte.

Amarte celebrates the Korean tradition of taking pleasure in a multistep skin care ritual. Together, Amarte products create a unique, multifaceted regimen – cleanse, hydrate, rejuvenate and protect –to create an effective skin care system with formulations that marry innovative science and impressive beauty, exceeding current U.S. standards. For maximized purity and skin care benefits, Amarte also uses innovative airless pump technology, which preserves natural ingredients and ensures the formula remains consistent and product is completely dispensed.

Now that you have some background information about Amarte, let me share with you my experiences using a few of their most coveted products!


The truly wonderful folks handling Amarte Skin Care generously sent me four key products from the Amarte Skin Care line to review.  I was very anxious to try out the products because I was so impressed and intrigued by everything I had read about the brand.


Amarte Daily Wonder® Cleansing Foam
Price:  $40


A whipped-to-perfection cleanser made to refresh and pamper all skin types including oily and acne-prone complexions. Formulated with a custom blend of natural antioxidants (lavender and chamomile) and the botanical ActivElement® allatonin, the creamy lather lifts away impurities, protects against external factors, brightens, soothes, rejuvenates and exfoliates skin, preparing it for hydration.


The very first thing I noticed about this product is how fresh, clean and beautiful is smelled.  I am all about the sensory experience, and immediately I was captivated with the cucumber infused fragrance.  The second thing I noticed was it's rich creamy texture that immediately transformed into a lathering foam as soon as I began to swirl a dollop of it in the palms of my hands.  You need very little of the product to dispense enough to adequately gently cleanse your entire makeup filled face!  I wear it all, foundation, concealer, powder, blush, eye shadow, mascara, you get the idea.  And, this cleanser quickly, effortlessly and thoroughly removes all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and feeling wonderful.  It is probably one of my most favorite cleansers of all times!  That is honestly my feeling about this truly awesome cleanser giving my skin a fresh glow.

The next step is to REJUVENATE:

Amarte Wonder Cream®
Price:  $97


One of the most highly regarded products of the Amarte line, Wonder Cream® aids in anti-aging and restoration, lightens sunspots and exfoliates and nourishes skin for a supple, translucent complexion. The unique formulation of nano-encapsulated retinol, mushroom emollient and microscopic, multitasking elemental sulfur restores a supple, uniform appearance, enhances immunity without irritation and calms and brightens skin. With pearl powder and caviar extract, skin is left with a delicate sheen and full of vitamins and minerals.


I tend to have sensitive skin so often when I try a new moisturizer, especially one that contains retinol and has exfoliating properties, my skin tends to not react very well to it.  I have, in the past, experienced increased redness, even some burning with these types of ingredients.  And, to my pleasant surprise, I experienced none of those negative side effects from using this sensational Amarte Wonder Cream.  It truly earned it's highly regarded name!  Over the past 2 months it has worked "wonders" on my skin!  I find the cream to be rich and luxurious, yet, not even the slightest bit greasy or over hydrating.  It seems to absorb into my skin immediately, leaving my skin calmed, smooth and oh so silky feeling, I love it!  It is as if my skin is just begging for all the nourishment from the vitamins and minerals that is contained within it leaving a perfect canvas for my next steps, the makeup!

I have noticed over the past 2 months that my skin is more radiant and seems to have more of a glow to it.  I am also finding that I am not covering up my skin as much as I used to, using less foundation and barely any concealer.  I used to use much more to cover up redness and uneven skin tone, but I barely have any of those issues anymore since I have been faithfully using this Wonder Cream.  I savor my skin with the lasting benefits of this product and my skin is now worth adorning!

Amarte Eyeconic® Eye Cream
Price:  $55


An anti-wrinkle rejuvenator that delivers the highest levels of enhanced-stability pure retinol, ActivExtracts®, and ActivElements® to give vitality and resiliency to the eye area. The sophisticated yet mild Korean formula deeply penetrates wrinkles without irritation, while the argan oil and ginkgo nut extracts nourish, protect and condition the skin for optimal hydration and elasticity.


First I have to comment on the innovative and very groovy applicator!  It is the finest and most unusual pump applicator I have used!  You can easily dispense the most ideal amount of eye cream, a tiny dot, without having to dig your fingers into some tiny jar to apply.  Bravo to whomever designed this container and pump for the eye cream, it is amazing!

OK, the eye cream is beyond exceptional, think of something superior and think beyond what is superior and there you have it, the word for this eye cream!  You need just a tiny dot for each eye, I apply just a little bit under each eye and a little above my eye and it leaves the skin around my eyes treated and feeling hydrated.  No wrinkly crinkly's are going to ever form around my eyes as long as I use this magnificent eye cream.

It is light and creamy and leaves no greasy residue anywhere around my eyes.  I have truly noticed increased smoothness around my eyes and my skin just seems so much healthier and dewy.  Consistent use of this product is key to keep the progress going, but I noticed a different in my skin texture almost immediately.  This non-irritating product has given me results worth of my devotion to it now!

Now on to the final step, PROTECT:

Amarte Natural Finish BB Cream
Price:  $55


This finely pigmented moisturizing face tint brightens, softly conceals and protects with Broad Spectrum SPF 36, providing uniform coverage without caking or flaking for a long lasting, natural glow. Formulated with refined particles of titanium dioxide, rare argan oil, elemental sulfur and caviar extracts, the BB cream brightens, hydrates, heals and exfoliates the skin. In Light and Natural.


I saved the best for last, well, not really because it is the last step in the skin care routine, but it really is my most favorite product in this line, if that is even possible because I hold such a huge regard for each one!   No other BB Cream that I have used can shine a candle over this one.  This Amarte Natural Finish BB Cream is by far the best I have ever experienced using for so many reasons!

First and foremost, when I use this product, I do not need to wear foundation, at all!  This BB Cream is rich, lusciously creamy, and the "natural" color is a perfect match for my skin tone, which is inbetween light and medium.  The cream flawlessly blends into my skin to even out my skin tone, hide imperfections, and give my skin that dewy yet matte skin that I have always dreamed of having!  Who knew that there was a magical cream like this that can multi-task and multi-task to instantly transform your skin into the kind of skin most women dream of having!

It is everything it claims to be:  finely pigmented, moisturing, brightening, conceals, protects, provides uniform coverage and it lasts all day long without gaining any kind of a greasy appearance to it over time.  Oh, and I have to add, a teeny tiny dot of this BB Cream goes a long, long way!  I have been using it daily for over 60 days and I STILL have so much left!  This product is worth its weight in gold, I say that without hesitation!  I love love love this product and so will you once you experience it for yourself.
