Ahhh cleansing balm - a fairly new style of cleanser on the skincare scene and I have to say that this, by far, is one of my favourites.
With so many different styles and textures of cleansers, toners, exfoliators etc to choose from, is it any wonder I find it difficult to choose the best product for my skin type.
Initially when looking into trying leansing balm, I wondered how exactly a consistency like this would be beneficial to my skin type and failed to see how it would make any difference. My oily skin type has always caused me to be apprehensive about anything which looks like it may just cause extra oil, which I've now realised is not the case at all because as I've learnt, if your skin isn't receiving what it needs, it will produce its own. So the oil on my skin is trying to tell me something, it's saying 'Kayleigh, you aren't providing me with enough hydration over here so I'm having to create my own, okay?'.
We all know skin hydration 101 is to DRINK PLENTY OF WATER, hydrate that badboy from the inside out and so I've take note and I think that is what has helped improve the condition of my skin massively, enabling me to enjoy the many benefits of this luxurious cleansing balm each morning without fail.
So, if you haven't already discovered it, let me tell you why I love the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm so darn much.
The combination of gentle ingredients in this cleansing balm are designed to balance and rejuvenate the surface of the skin in one go, leaving it feeling fresh, hydrated and most importantly for me - calm.
I think sometimes I look for too much in a skincare product and am skeptical when something looks fairly simple - but less is more because not only is Moringa a super-duper-fabulicious anti-aging natural skincare ingredient ideal for treating skin that has been affected by confitions such as acne, but it also helps reduce wrinkles, pigmentation and inflammation - amen.
So, I would highly recommend this to anybody who wants silky smooth, fresh and brighter looking skin even though you have sensitive skin or are prone to redness, it's totally worth it.
Handy Tip: Leave your cleansing balm in the fridge and enjoy a cool, skin tightening and firming effect - and this also stops it overheating in warm weather!
