The 'Spa in a jar' Cleanser

I want to share a product with you which has changed the way I take my make up off. The Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm.

Now this cleanser has been a game changer for me. I love cleansers, its like a comfort blanket for my face, a way to make me feel extra clean but with something that benefits my skin. Depending on how I feel, I have cleansers for every mood and use them daily, but I still find myself using micella water to remove my eye make up (mascara) as cleansers often aren’t designed to remove eye make up or simply just don’t get it off.... I just end up looking like a panda! I want to stress that this will be the same for everyone but this cleanser removes my mascara like a dream and is currently a go-to in my skincare cabinet, so I suggest you all give it a go!

But don’t just take my word for it, with 19 awards over 10 years and 14 of which were in 2019 alone, a feature in Vogue and is Beauty Bible Awards 2019 ‘Best Cleansing Balm’ Gold Winner you really would be silly to give this one a miss... it has also been named your ‘spa in a jar’ SOLD before I even tried it. I actually cannot take credit for finding this product, this was a secret Santa gift from my good friend, Charlotte (not so secret eh?) But she saw this product and wanted to know what all the hype was about… via me!

Most that know me would know I am slightly obsessed with trying to create spa experiences at home, whether it be by candles, smells, products, music or simply just by spending an extra 30 seconds to massage a product into my skin.. I am all for self indulgence! The Emma Hardie Cleanser not only looks beautiful, but also smells divine with essential oils of Orange, Neroli, Mandarin, Jasmine and Rose and that mix of scents takes me right back to a spa I went to in Morocco many years ago!

Now on to the actual product... it claims to deep cleanse, hydrate and moisturise your skin and is said to work for all skin types, even sensitive ones. Ingredients include Moringa Seed Extract, Wild Sea Fennel and Vitamin E which balance, purify and minimise the appearance of open pores. Cleansers generally are designed to clean yet sooth your skin and this product does just that. Using an almond shaped finger full (its a waxy, thick consistency) massage into your face, concentrating on problematic areas for a deeper clean then work gently into your eyes (please do not put the product directly into your eyes or rub them, this is such a sensitive area, so go careful!) Once you have given yourself a lovely little facial massage, it will feel more oily than creamy, making it really easy to move around your face without dragging your skin. Once all rubbed in you can then get your facial cloth... Emma Hardie so kindly supplies us with one! and its a dual action one - use the microfibre side for cleanser removal and the exfoliating muslin side for polishing/buffing your skin, or if you are like me and have a million muslin cloths, use these!

In a nutshell, the Emma Hardie Cleanser claims to be 'A purifying botanical cleansing balm that removes all traces of face and eye make-up' Enough said.

It has a more luxury price tag with the full size (100ml) at £47 straight from the Emma Hardie Website, the following link will take you straight there;

But I would always recommend a sample/travel size to try out as different products work for different skin types. Here's a link to the smaller pot for the special offer of £5 (15ml)
