REVIEW | EMMA HARDIE MORINGA CLEANSING BALM

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm Review
Boy, am I late to this party. I am so very very late. This is the best thing I have bought in the entire year of 2016. The Emma Hardie Moringa Balm (£38 for 100ml) is by no means cheap and now you can even buy a supersize version for £59 (200ml). This will hopefully still be available when this one runs out. It comes with a muslin cloth and although I am not a fan of tub packaging I can't see how it could be housed in anything else. It really does feel like a thick balm which melts to the touch. The scent is quite strong but overall very pleasant, to me at least, I use this cleanser every time I wear makeup and thoroughly enjoy removing my makeup because of it. It  is so gentle and lovely, it truly feels like a spa-type product. I use this as my second cleanse, first I use a facial scrub to remove as much makeup as I can and then follow up with this extraordinary cleansing balm

The directions for use are: Morning and evening, mix a few drops of warm water with a little Moringa Cleansing Balm to create a milk. Massage into the face, neck and eye area to melt away makeup, excess oil and grime. To remove, soak your Lift and Sculpt Cleansing Cloth in warm water, squeeze out the excess and gently wipe over the whole face and neck, taking extra care around the delicate eye area. Use the gently abrasive muslin side of the cloth to exfoliate trouble spots, and the smoother microfibre side for more delicate areas.

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm Review
I don't use this in the morning but now will try to, because it feels so relaxing it seems more suited to be a PM product. I prefer more energising scents in the morning as I am perpetually half asleep and disgustingly late. I haven't used a muslin cloth in my skincare routine but have enjoyed the introduction. I love that one side is abrasive and one side super soft. I do have problem skin with occasional breakouts and it constantly craves exfoliation so the rough side gets a lot of action. I know everyone raves about this product and I have to agree this is probably the best cleansing balm on the market and I don't want to use anything else. It is worth mentioning that this is the only cleansing balm I have tried so I am somewhat biased. I will be very sad when this runs out and am thankful to have decided to make the purchase after ignoring the hype surrounding this product for so long. 

Thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this review and would love to hear about your favourite skincare products in the comments below.

  3. I did a post on 10 cleansing balms and I liked this one. My favorite is All Clean Balm...but I think the packaging weighed into it, too. Haha.

  6. I love this balm so much. It ticks a lot of boxes for me - great packaging, sweet scent, melts easily, emulsifies and of course leaves my face glowing and bright. And yes, I also love that their cleansing cloth is fab too. Try leaving it on overnight as a mask...its lovely xxx

  8. I'm always very curious to see how cult products truly perform and I'm glad to see that this one is as lovely as most review state it is! I'm just the same: I keep the relaxing scent for the evenings and the uplifting ones for the mornings, it just makes more sense that way!

  10. I'm not sure how I feel about cleansing balms that I need to wipe off, but it certainly sounds relaxing! Glad to hear you like it since it is quite pricey :)

  11. I'm still yet to try this. I want to but the price puts me of, sounds like a need to though. I currently using the pixi and caroline hirons double cleanser, which has a balm cleanser - its ok. I really like the body shop cleansing butter, it works so well and is really cheap xx

    1. Ooh I might try that, I am so new to the balm scene that I think I have fallen head over heels for the first one I have met. Definitely want to try some more, thanks for the suggestion. It doesn't sound like you're too impressed with the Pixi and Caroline Hirons cleanser though. . .? Xx

  20. This sounds like an interesting product! I much prefer emulsifying cleansing oils to balms though, as they're so quick and easy to use, just pump and go. This does sound luxurious though!
