Alright, you've got me! I've finally caved and decided to talk about the most hyped beauty product since the Naked palette came to town, the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm (and breathe). I've always loved a good rich balm to massage into my skin and melt away everything that shouldn't be there. My first love came in the form of the Botanics Organic Cleansing Balm, then they changed the formula and it just wasn't that great anymore. After that I thought the EVE LOM Cleansing Balm was the one for me until on a recent Caroline Hirons inspired crusade to rid Mineral Oil from my skincare routine, I found out that it did in fact contain it and the search continued.
I received my first little tub of this beauty via a Feel Unique Beauty Box a long time ago, thought it was pretty darn good, then completely forgot about it. Meanwhile the entire beauty world couldn't get enough of the stuff and it wasn't until I was alerted to an amazing offer from QVC (basically offering buy one get half free) that I jumped at the chance to fall back in love with the cleanser everyone's gone dotty over.
It contains Moringa seed extract, Wild Sea Fennel and Vitamin E to balance, purify and help minimise open pores, Orange, Neroli and Mandarin extracts to rejuvenate and revitalise and Jasmine, Cedarwood and Rose to recondition dull, dry, dehydrated skin. The great thing about this cleansing balm is that it balances the right amount of richness with a product that doesn't feel overly heavy when applied. The smell is also something that wows me and I find this very relaxing to use in the evening as I scrub the day away. Not only does it remove every trace of makeup from my skin, it also plumps it up and leaves me with what I can only describe as a fresh 'glow'.
A few qualms would certainly be the temperamental packaging, lid leakage (which as you can see has already happened to my larger pot) being the most annoying aspect of this and of course at a steep £34.00, the price! I'm definitely a believer in investing when it comes to skincare though, and for what it does I certainly wouldn't hesitate in paying out for it again and again.
Have you tried the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm? What are your thoughts?
