What’s the maximum amount would you consider paying for a cleanser? £5, £10, £20 or there’s no limit as long as it is a good one? There are some things that are worst investing, like a night cream or a good face mask… But do you think it is worth paying so much for a product that only stays on your face for a few minutes? If your answer is yes then you should keep an eye on Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm…
I prefer investing in skincare products that stay on my face more than a few minutes, so I wouldn’t really spend more than £20 for a first&second cleanser. What are your thoughts about it?
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm (15 ml) is one of the cult and highly raved cleansing balm. It has a thick consistency. It is similar to the Pond’s Cold Cream, so you don’t actually need much to clean your face. This balm should make your skin feel more balanced, soft, radiant, smoother, calmer, hydrated, clarified. Ticks all the boxes for a good cleanser! If you have a dry skin, then this balm will help you with that. Also according to the description, people with dry skin could use it as a mask as well. There’s nothing not to like about this cleanser, it does what it claims. Skin feels softer, hydrated and look smoother.
In the evening I prefer to double cleanse. I use micellar water to clean my makeup and then carry on with the second cleanser. Even though you could use this balm as a first cleanser, I never used it that way. Since it is an expensive cleanser and I didn’t want to waste that tiny sample. I used it as a second cleanser and carried on with my regular skincare routine. It removes all the traces of the makeup and leaves the skin clean and soft.
The best way to apply it is warming the balm between your hands and applying all around your face. Once you massage it onto your face, you will need a muslin cloth soaked in warm water. Then clean it off to get the softest and brightest skin. You can’t just wash it off with water, so if you don’t have any face cloth then you should get one.
This balm would be more suitable for colder months, especially for people with oily skin. In warmer months, I avoid using really heavy cleansers like this, otherwise, I end up having breakouts. Also if you don’t like scented cleansers then the scent might put you off a little bit. It has floral scent, it is not strong but it is noticeable. I hope companies would bring up more unscented cleansers.
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm is £38 for 100 ml. If you like trying high-end cleansers to treat your skin, then you should check it out. It is a really good cleansing balm, however, it is not something I’d get unless it is on sale. There are other good cleansers like Clinique Take the Day off Cleansing Balm and The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter which are way cheaper than this balm.
Do you double cleanse your skin? Do you have any must-have cleansing product? Have you tried Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm before?
