Roughly twelve months ago, you could not escape reviews, mentions and recommendations of the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. It was reviewed by almost all of the top tier beauty bloggers and appeared in daily skin routines from the likes of Zoella, Tanya Burr and Fleur de Force.
Almost a year on and it’s all gone a little quiet. So, was it worth the hype? Or was it a simply a well-funded campaign engaging the right influencers to spread the word?
With this in mind, I recently parted with my cash – £38.00, to give it a try and have concluded that, yes, this product is amaze balls!
I describe my skin as combination, with a textbook oily t-zone and drier patches elsewhere. I particularly tend to suffer more with excess oil towards the end of the working day. This is not a problem anymore.
I purchased the cleansing balm from Feelunique about eight weeks ago and I’ve only just finished the pot. I believe it’s important to trial a new product for at least two weeks before reviewing. And as this was such a joy to use, I was happy to continue to using it. The fact that it has lasted roughly two months also offers great value for money.
To use the balm you need to take a little amount into your hands, rub on to your face, lather with a splash of water and use the muslin cloth provided to remove. I use the product in the evening to remove my make-up, which literally melts off – it’s gentle enough to use on my eyes, and then again in the morning.
The texture is oily and turns milky with water. After just a couple of uses my skin felt touch-ably softer and my skin is now visibly clearer. But the most amazing result was the effect it had on my complexion, honestly since using this I have not had to worry about excess oil or dry patches, my skin has, you could say, re-balanced itself.
In conclusion, this cleansing balm is indeed worth the hype it achieved and I will definitely be purchasing this. Oh, and it smells divine!
