Skin Care Routine Untangled

spa

Skin care can be down right confusing!

When we decided to launch Amber Blue our main goal was to take the headache out of choosing what was needed for your skin; hence our slogan, “Pure and Simple Skincare”.  Pure: the absolute best ingredients.  Simple: simple product line. Put simply, we created products that are the best at what they do.

At our launch, we were surprised at how many women were unsure of the “steps” in skincare. This is what is great about meeting our clients in person, we can answer your questions and also get great feedback. You inspired this week’s blog, so thank you. Hopefully we’ll help women around the world untangle your question:

What does a proper skincare routine consist of?
