Emma Hardie – Moringa Cleansing Balm

Since I changed my skincare routine and started to put more attention and effort to the way I cleanse my face my skin has definitely been feeling and looking better. I’ve been a big fan of removing my make-up with balms, oils, cleansing creams and using a muslin cloth for a while now. This cleansing balm is just so fantastic that I had to put a review straightaway.




I purchased a Christmas edition which was 50ml for £10, when regular 100ml is about £38. Perfect size for travelling! By the time I looked on-line to order more, it was already taken off sale. Never mind, I shall repurchase big size anyway.


It is quite similar product to Take the day off by Clinique, yet a bit more pleasant to use. I scoop out a bit of a product and massage my face with it to break down any make-up. It does the job really well and remove even waterproof and heavy make-up on my face. It’s gentle enough to use on the eyes, although I remove my eye make-up with a proper eye make-up remover beforehand. Then I wet the cloth that’s included and take off all the product from my face. For me it’s perfect for my first cleanse, then I use a different cleanser for a second cleanse. If you have a very dry skin you might just use Emma Hardie cleansing balm on it’s own, perhaps use it second time for extra cleansing effect.




It smells delicious, a bit fruity and refreshing, but not overwhelming. Really fantastic. On the skin it turns into a nice oil, that can be used for massaging. It says on Emma Hardie website that it can be even left overnight as a nourishing mask. I haven’t tried it that way yet.

Moringa Balm is full of oils and fruit extracts. It contains essential oils too, which might be irritating for a sensitive skin. Other than that, the ingredients are impressive, natural and great variety of oils.


Vitis Vinifera (grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (sweet Almond) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Peg-8 Beeswax, Peg-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Peg-60 Almond Glycerides, Sorbitan Stearate, Palmitic/Stearic Triglycerides, Limonene, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Peel Oil, Silica, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Aurantium Amara (bitter Orange) Flower Oil, Citrus Nobilis (mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Juniperus Virginiana Oil, Aqua (water), Lecithin, Linalool, Butylene Glycol, Octyldodecyl Pca, Menthyl Pca, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Crithmum Maritimum Extract, Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) Seed Oil, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract, Jasminum Officinale (jasmine) Flower Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Disodium Phosphate, Citronellol, Citric Acid, Geraniol, Citral

The cloth that’s included with this balm is very nice and soft. I don’t think it has that micro-exfoliating properties that my usual muslin cloth has, but it’s not a problem anyway. It’s very nice to use and it does take the whole make-up off really well.

I prefer that cleansing balm over my Clinique one, as it smells gorgeous and is more pleasant to use. On the other hand the Clinique one is completely fragrance free, so it’s safer option for anyone with sensitive skin and it works out cheaper. If you have a budget for Emma Hardie then go for it. Very pleasant indeed, especially for dry skin.

It’s available from SpaceNK, Marks and Spencer, on-line
