Some time in May I posted a haul about the Emma Hardie cleansing balm before I went on a trip to Nigeria ( I had a good time incase you were wondering :) ). If you read my HAUL post, you know I got this after I posted my skin care favourites. Although this was not featured in the video, this product would have definitely made it to the list. Let me just say my skin was doing good but because of Caroline Hirons recommendations on youtube I was curious to try something new. 

I’m 100% glad I got the cleansing balm, its a very unique product compared to all the junk i’ve tried in the past. The balm has alot of natural ingredients and its refreshing to see a brand that’s not chemical crazy.

The Moringa cleansing balm is silky thick creamy texture that melts when its massaged into the skin. I use the balm for my night routine because it removes all my makeup including eye makeup without over drying my skin. The reason why I use it mainly at night is because I can double cleanse my face ( Double cleansing means washing your face twice) without me worrying about my skin getting irritated. Since I started using the balm, i’ve eliminated eye makeup removers from my routine and honestly i’m glad I did. The gentle cleansing balm is prefect for people with sensitive skin as it does not have any harsh ingredients.

The balm is super hydrating and leaves my skin soft and refreshed. It has an amazing relaxing smell that makes me feel like i’m getting a spa facial. The balm has helped improve the texture of  my skin, reduced  the appearance of my pores and so far reduced my breakouts ( the presence of orange and neroli helps prevent breakouts and calms the skin during my special lady visits).  The balm is definitely going to last me a long time as you only need a pea sized amount. I use the Emma Hardie wash cloths ( review of the cloths soon) to clean off the balm by soaking it in warm water, squeezing out the excess and wiping my whole face,eyes & neck area.

This cleanser does not tighten my skin and removes makeup better than any product i’ve ever tried. The balm retails for £34 at Space N K  which is where I purchased my cleanser. Although this a UK brand, It can also be found online at Beauty bay (International shipping available) and Bath & Unwind.
The only issue I have is the packaging, my lid cracked and the tub is too bulky. I like my containers to be simple and space friendly. Travelling with this was a pain as it took up too much space in my toilet bag. Also the heat in Nigeria was not helping matters because the balm melted and leaked alot.

But apart from that, this is an excellent product for every skin type, young, mature woman ( and man).
