Review: Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm

Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm1

Okay, so I'm a good few months behind on this bandwagon, but who wants to be on the same road as others anyway?! The lovely people at Blow LTD recently got in touch asking if I'd like to test out a product of my choice from their summer shop, so of course I just had to try out the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm.

I'd heard so many incredible things said about it in the blogosphere, but with it's price tag being less than student-friendly especially as I'm allergic to a barrel load of products I didn't decide to purchase it early. There's nothing worse than forking out a lot of money for something you can't use!

I was kindly sent this 15ml sample version of the product, and I've been using it every day for the past two weeks. And honestly? I'm not so sure what I think of it *shock horror*. It is incredible for removing make-up, especially my eye make-up which just melts away, and I've found the general surface of my face has improved significantly - the dry patches I have often suffered from have vanished and on a whole my skin looks a lot healthier than it did. The product itself feels very luxurious, with a lovely scent and a butter-like texture.

However, as previously mentioned, I have fairly sensitive skin and I think this product may sadly be too much for me. My skin has broken out since using this product, and whilst I have my suspicions that it may be the foundation I've been using that has caused it, this cleanser hasn't really done heaps to help it. I'd read so much about this product, that I had rather high hopes, and I'm not sure whether they've lived up to them. But then again, maybe I was just expecting it to be a miracle worker?

Don't get me wrong, I do really like this product and I will be using it all up, trust me! I'm looking forward to seeing what differences it makes to my skin in the long run. Maybe I'll change up my foundation routine and give it another go, see if it does improve. We'll see.

If you haven't tried it, then I'd recommend you giving a go, I'd say that it was suitable to most skin types. My skin is just incredibly sensitive unfortunately, and everyone's reacts to something different! 
Have you tried this before? I'd love to know how you felt about it!

  1. This sounds lush! Maybe it's broken your skin out because it's a new product and your skin has to get used to it?

  2. My skin is horrific when it comes to sensitivity and spots BUT it sounds like it does a really great job..! xxx

  3. I have really sensitive skin too, maybe I should stay away from this one! Sometimes people make it sounds all amazing, when it's not for everyone!

  4. Thanks for sharing this review! I have ultra sensitive skin, so I will have to keep my distance from this one.. I know packaging isn't everything, but wow this product looks gorgeous!
