My Lord & Saviour | Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm


Oh my goodness where do I start? This is my second pot of Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm - £38.00 and I just couldn't see myself using anything else. I know that people rave on about products and they fill the blogosphere but this really deserves every good review it gets. Without this I feel like my skin would still be a problem for me but finally I can leave the house with confidence and that to me is priceless!

I have a rather lengthy post coming up about the battle with my skin. The full story will be published very soon, so keep an eye out. 

With fresh breakouts almost every morning I stopped using skincare, the only thing in my draw was a bottle of Bioderma and a tube of Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. But after removing my make up I needed something to sooth and hydrate my skin. Which led me to this!

I take a five pence sized amount and massage this into the skin. The balm melts down into an oil and feels incredibly luxurious. Packed with Grape Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil these rich, essential fatty acids help to plump and soften the skin. 

I was weary of this at first as it contains essential oils. Something in the past, my skin has not taken well to. However I hadn't tried any products that contain Orange, Neroli or Mandarin. These are supposed to help rejuvenate and revitalise the skin whilst calming the senses. And after a couple of uses my skin was relaxed, most of the redness had calmed down and even some angry blemishes had started to clear up.

As this comes with It's own cleansing cloth I thought I would use this alongside it. One side is microfibre and the other is muslin. I am a great lover of using flannels anyway, but the muslin side is great for exfoliating my t-zone. 

I press a hot flannel onto my skin to open the pours and repeat a couple of times before wiping the balm/oil residue off. 

After just one week of nightly use my skin looked 10x better. I couldn't believe that something so simple could be so effective. And for £36-38 (depending on where you purchase it) this is such great value for money. That being said I know that some people are less keen on investing. 

With my second tub well under way I have also started using this in the morning. I know shock! A balm in the morning? I've found that mixing this with a small amount of luke warm water turns the balm into a light creamy formula. Which is great to use whilst having a steaming hot shower.

I also like to use this as a mask every now and again. I take double what I use to cleanse and massage it into the skin, leaving it for about 10 minutes before removing it. Sometimes I even leave it on overnight if my skin is super lacking. This is perfect for when my diet has been a bit rubbish or if I'm dehydrated. 

In just 5-6 months my skin has been transformed. I have had maybe 2-3 small blemishes in the past month, which is just amazing! After ditching the toners and serums I feel like I can really see what my skin needs and this balm just covers it all. It's a complete wonder product for me that I just couldn't see myself without.
