I’ve been working really hard lately on keeping up with a good skincare routine and recently I’ve been double cleansing of an evening, especially after I’ve been working. A favourite of the beauty blogging world is the Amazing Skin Moringa Cleansing Balm from Emma Hardie, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.
This thick balm contains Moringa seed extract, wild sea fennel and vitamin E to balance and purify, and minimise open pores. Orange, neroli and mandarin revitalises and rejuvenates the skin and jasmine, cedar wood and rose reconditions dull, dry and dehydrated skin. As my main concerns are dehydration and dullness and to combat those pesky pores, this cleansing balm is ideal for my skin type.
The picture shows the consistency of the balm, and this is after 7 days of use. You only need a small amount to cleanse your entire face. Mix the balm with a few drops of water to make a creamy milk and apply to your face, massaging your skin as you apply. The smell is so wonderful, it does get slightly addictive as you apply it to your face. I found that I spend an awful lot of time massaging it in. The product gets to work instantly, you can feel your skin soaking up the essential oils and melting away the days worth of dirt and grime. I use the Emma Hardie face cloth to remove the cleanser, and use the muslin side to exfoliate, especially on my nose where I am prone to blocked pores and the microfibre side for around my eye area and any other sensitive areas.
The balm also works well as a soothing face mask. I applied the balm in its natural form to my skin and sat back for ten minutes with Vogue magazine!
Even though I have several cleansers, this seems to have made the top of the pile. It’s the pot I reach for the most and I’m bypassing my other favourites in favour for Emma Hardie. I would love to try more products from the collection, including the Amazing Face A.M/P.M Treatment Moisturiser. It’s £34 for 100ml, however I think it’s worth it’s weight in gold. The difference in my skin in just a week is brilliant. I feel fresher and those problem areas picked up in my Dermalogica facial mapping session have been approached and dealt with, using just this one product.
