Moringa Cleansing Balm
Good but not great
After reading all the hype online I couldn't wait to try this balm. I'd just finished my tube of the Elemental Herbology Purify and Soothe Cleansing Balm so time to make the switch!
It smells divine, absolutely incredible compared to other balms. Literally can't get enough of the smell. A little goes a long way which is good. My skin feels ridiculously smooth afterwards.
Now for the 'but'... It doesn't take off my make up as well as the Elemental Herbology or Eve Lom cleansers at all. I just wear tinted moisturiser and eye makeup and I have to scrub horribly hard at my eyes for this to even begin to take off my mascara (Nars). I now use an eye make up remover and follow with this. Not a big deal but disappointing after the other two balms removed everything with no struggle

ok, nothing special
i have used this cleanser for 2 weeks now and i have to say i had high expectations after reading the reviews. But its an ok cleanser but definately nothing special, i was a bit skeptical about purchasing anyway as i have used the eve lom cleanser in the past and loved it! and im afraid too say this just didnt live up too the hype. I wont be purchasing again and will return too my eve lom.

Perfection in a jar!
In the interest of full disclosure, I should say that I'm a bit of a skincare junkie. If it's the new, hot thing, if it's being blogged about...yeah, you can most likely guarantee I am giving it a shot.
That said, I always, always, always come back to the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. Always. Emma is my homegirl.
I'll start with the stuff that we all want to know: you need a scoop about the size of a gum ball. Warm it up between your hands and then apply it all over dry skin.
And can I just stop right here and talk abut how good this balm smells? To me, it smells like being at the beach on holiday; that warm, suntan lotion and sea smell. Seriously, I would wear it as a perfume.
Ok, so back to cleansing: Once it's on your face, really work it with your hands and knuckles. Massage it in, take your time, use firm motions to loosen up all of the makeup and grime from the day. It's great at removing eye makeup and red lipstick, too.
To remove, I use the included cloth and sweep it off with the soft side and hand-hot water. I just keep rinsing under the tap until the cloth comes away clean.
Some nights, if I feel like having a bit of a tub soak, I will apply another thin layer and then let it sit on my skin, just to enjoy the smell and the softening effects. At this point, I will use the muslin side to remove, which offers a bit of light exfoliation.
The end result is skin so soft and silky that you will want to stroke your cheek like your annoying Aunt Ermintrude. I have experienced no breakouts or purging with this, and have noticed a huge improvement in texture and clarity.
I use this 2x daily and a jar lasts me about 2 months. Keep in mind that I use far less in the morning, since I am not really doing a deep cleanse. I use a little blob about the size of a small blueberry.
Worth every pound, dollar, euro, deutschmark, or peso. A must-have in any girls arsenal. Go buy it. Buy it now. I'll wait!
