Emma Hardie professional cleansing system

Moringa cleansing balm
First thing to mention is how amazing this balm smells. With extracts of grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, bergamont, jasmine and orange, it makes make up removal a truely enjoyable process.

Texture wise, it's a really interesting product. It's called a balm, but you're supposed to mix it in with some warm water just before application. This then turns it into more of a milky texture. The balm/milk rinses off mostly with water and any last residues are easily removed with a face cloth.

The cleanser can be used around the eye area, but for heavy eye make up, I'd recommend removing it first. As for the rest of my make up, it was easily removed with this cleanser and over time my pores have become smoother and less noticable.

Rosehip exfoliating seeds and Duo action cleansing cloth

To exfoliate the skin, there is a small jar of rosehip seeds. The seeds remind me of small sand granules and are quite 'scrubby' on the skin. It left my skin super smooth but I wouldn't recommend using it more than once a week.

The kit also come with a double sided face cloth- flannel on one side and a muslin on the other. Both felt gentle on the skin, and helped to remove any last traces of cleanser.

At £42 there's no denying this is a luxury product. Although the seeds and the face cloth were a nice addition, I didn't feel they were absoutely essential. However I loved the cleanser and will definitely be repurchasing once my tub runs out.

  5. It sounds exactly like how you would use an oil cleanser. Interesting. I always use oil cleansers when I have more make-up on or waterproof mascara. Only thing that does the job quickly without pulling out my eyelashes! Does sound expensive though! Eek.

  7. I really do recommend Shu Uemura. I use one by Lelan Vital. It's half the price of Shu. It's a Korean brand that you can only buy specially from a company if you are a member or know a member. I like Lelan Vital. :) Oh, was wondering, without sounding creepy(!), do you ever meet up with fellow bloggers? Since you're in London!
