Skincare is probably as important for me as makeup, if not more. Makeup is about feeling confident and sexy and I love playing with it. But skincare, combined with other things like healthy diet and lifestyle, is what really makes a difference to how I age and how well my skin looks. So it's an essential part of my daily care and I make sure I invest on it, although in this case I was lucky enough to be given this cleanser for my birthday.
For those who still don't know Emma Hardie's award winning product, it's essentially a cleansing balm that when massaged onto the skin, melts and turns into a more oily consistency, removing both face and eye makeup. And the best thing about this cleanser is that it removes every trace of makeup while keeping the skin soft and moisturised. It's suitable for sensitive skin and also recommended to be used as a soothing mask (left on the skin for 10 minutes), or as a rescue balm (for elbows and general dry patches on the skin). I personally have only used it as a cleanser so I can't vouch for it's other uses. But I can see why it would be good for those recommended purposes, as it's such a "balmy" and hydrating product. Simply incredible and does what it says on the tin. Not to mention it smells amazing!
The product comes beautifully packaged and includes a really soft, good quality flannel, which has a gently abrasive muslin side to help exfoliate the skin and a smoother micro fibre side for polishing.
To remove my makeup I simply apply a little bit of the balm on my forehead, cheeks and chin, wet the tip of my fingers a tiny bit and spread the cleanser around, massaging my face as I go. Once I finish, I wet the cloth/flannel with warm water, squeeze out the excess and gently wipe off my makeup, using both sides of the cloth. It's simple, quick and very effective. My skin is left super smooth, looking healthy and hydrated.
This product is simply beautiful and luxurious not only on the outside but mainly on how amazing it makes my skin feel. If you're a "makeup wipe" user, I highly recommend you ditch those and try something like the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. I promise once you start using proper cleansers such as this one, you just won't look back and your skin will thank you forever. Remember one face is all we have so it's worth looking after it! ;)
This cleanser usually retails for £38 (100ml) but I have found an amazing set with 3x 50ml cleansers + 3 cloths for £38 in M&S and Cult Beauty. Such a great deal as you get more product for your money (150ml in total) and extra cloths. Also perfect size for travelling and a good option if you fancy sharing between friends or giving them as a present.
