I love the concept of a product that can do more than one thing, because it's clever, and I'm happy to report that the Moringa Cleansing Balm by Emma Hardie is brilliant, clever, and works super hard with more than just one function!
To give you a little background on the brand, the two key principles behind Emma Hardie are skin balancing and targeted botanicals. With balanced skin, it would look healthy and younger looking, while the targeted botanicals work together to promote a clearer and brighter complexion. It definitely sounds good to me!
The Moringa Cleansing Balm is a balanced daily cleanser that is meant to thoroughly cleanse deep into the pores, and this is meant to be good for all skin types. Packed with grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, Moringa seed extract, wild sea fennel and vitamin E, these ingredients would help plump and soften the skin, as well as balance and purify the complexion. With essential oils of orange, neroli and mandarin, as well as jasmine and rose, these rejuvenate and revitalise the skin, while calming the senses, and the latter pair target dull and dry skin, helping combat dehydration.
While it does sound amazing, what does it really do and how does it feel? Well, this balm comes in a heavy screw top jar containing 100g of product, and included in the box is also a dual action cleansing cloth, where there is a gently abrasive muslin side for exfoliation, and a smoother microfiber side for polishing and perfecting.
To use this product, just scoop out a small amount (it's recommended to try a hazelnut piece on the box), and spread it over the skin. All you have to do to remove it is wet down the cloth and gently wipe it away and hey presto! This will leave your skin soft and smooth. Alternatively, you can try this as a hydrating mask by leaving it on for 10 minutes, which makes it a great multipurpose product. I have tried this balm both ways, and I love that it doesn't leave traces or a film on the skin. I do think that this is one product that can definitely be used to either remove makeup or to hydrate the skin.
Love, love, love it! For those who'd like to pick one up to try for themselves, make sure you check out TVSN, or head to their website!
