Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm.

This review has been a long time coming, a really long time... this picture was taken in December! But at the time the hype around the this little pot was so large, I didn't think you needed my two cents adding to the mix, what more could you possibly need to know?

Well now the hype has died down and there's not 7462 posts being published every day about this, I wanted my turn ;) The Emma Hardie Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing balm is suitable for all skin types, all ages, all skin concerns, slap that stuff on there, you'll be fine. Oily skin and scared of more oil, don't be a silly goose and massage massage massage! This will help balance out your skin and should calm the oily areas, it certainly did for me.

What I love most about this, is that it is quite literally one of the most luxurious cleansers I have ever used, the fancy (& rather bulky) packaging, the soothing scent and the way it feels on your skin. It just melts effortlessly and is the most emollient cleanser I have ever come across too, perfect for giving yourself a facial massage. I admit, even after reading and watching a few how-to's I'm still not great at them and just go with the flow to get the blood pumping in my skin.

My 100ml cleanser came with the rosehip seeds in a set (at the time it was on offer) that you add to exfoliate your skin, I admit in all this time I have only used them twice, they are surprisingly harsh and I prefer to use acidic exfoliators instead these days. But the balm is worth every penny, mine is just coming to an end now after 6 months with regular use a couple of times a week. I only reach for this if I want to put the effort in and really pamper myself or if my skin is irritated. It's so soothing, I often cup my hands together and breath in the scent as I really can't get enough of it. 

I will definately repurchase this when I can afford it, I'll probably wait for it to be on offer again to save a few pounds, or keep a lookout on qvc where they actually do some really great deals, I'd love to try the Hydrating Lighter Lotion, but it's not in a kit with the cleanser at the moment. The best deal I've found is this one for a full size balm & travel 50ml size plus a travel serum for less than the cleanser usually costs on it's own! crazy.

Have you tried this super famous balm yet? was it love or loath?


  1. I had a sample of this and really enjoyed using it. Unfortunately dont have the funds to buy it full sized. I wish it was a little bit cheaper!

  3. This is on my wishlist. I'm tempted to get it when I get paid, but I may wait until my birthday as there is so much I'm lusting after. But this has to be mine asap!

  5. Whaaat that deal is incredible! I've wanted to buy this for the LONGEST time but kept putting it off for some reason, I think cos I still have cleanser samples to use until I've completely ran out. But that deal on QVC is SO good, I'm totally buying it when I get paid tomorrow :D Thanks for the heads up!

  6. I have oily skin so I'd always stayed away from products like this but now you've said it works on all skin types I'm tempted to give it a try if I can afford it!

  7. I have heard so much about this, and I really want to try it! Really need to order it sooner rather than later, haha! x

  8. Oh wow! That QVC deal is incredible. I'm so glad that I stumbled across this as I was just about to order it without any of the extra goodies! It's such a beautiful balm isn't it?
