Cleanse & Polish
When it comes to cleansers, I'm a bit like Goldilocks: always looking for the one that's just right.
Some have dried my skin out, some have been too rich, some have made me break out, some take off my makeup and some don't. So you see, it's been quite the challenge. But there's one that I've found that I simply love using.
Emma Hardie isn't a brand I'm overly familiar with, but the Moringa Cleansing Balm is something I've heard a lot about. It's award-winning and rightly so. You only need a little amount for it to go a long way and I think it's really great value as it will last you forever. Start by massaging onto dry skin (it's even fine to use on your eyes to remove make-up) then, soak the cleansing cloth in warm water and let it rest on your face for a couple of seconds before wiping away the balm. Your face is left smooth, clean and hydrated. Totally lovely, I can't recommend the balm enough!
And when I want a deeper cleanse, I use the balm with the Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush. Mary Kay is to the US what Avon is to the UK, and it's huuuge in America. Their brush is somewhat cheaper than a Clarisonic and does the exact same job of cleansing, polishing and buffing the skin. It's also rather therapeutic to use and my skin afterwards is so deeply satisfying to touch. I use it after I've massaged in the balm and before I apply the cloth, to give my skin a good and thorough double cleanse.
For once, I've found skincare that doesn't cost the earth and really works.
Will you give them a go?
