Hello friends! Today I thought I would share a little bit of love for Emma Hardie skincare and chat about their key ingredient, Moringa and what it is and why it is SO flippin’ special!! I have been a fan of the Morgina skin care collection for a while now and I always knew it worked wonders on my skin and smelt incredible, but I had no idea what Morgina even was and why it’s so important as an ingredient! Let’s chat!!
‘Moringa is a real super ingredient and it’s no wonder that its both a health and skincare staple for so many. Using natural ingredients with incredible benefits is key to the Emma Hardie philosophy of using power packed botanicals to help the skin look younger, naturally’

It is native to India and the countries surrounding the Red Sea, the Moringa Tree’s seeds and leaves have been harvested and used in cuisine locally for centuries for it’s superfood health benefits.

Why Is Moringa Seed Extract Good For Our Skin?

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm Review
Before I leave, I just wanted to give you a quick review of the iconic, multi-award winning Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. This is the product which made me fall in love with the brand and I think a lot of other ladies out there feel the same way. It’s truly one of the most beautiful and luxurious cleansing balms on the market and it doesn’t matter how many tubs of this I work my way through, I never ever get bored of it! Honestly, if you haven’t tried it before, it’s a game changer and a little truly does go a long way, so if you do want to indulge, it will last a good amount of time.
It has a thick but almost mousse-like balm consistency which melts into the skin to quickly and easily remove make up. It deeply cleanses the skin of all impurities without stripping the skin – a game changer if you have dry skin like me. Plus, if you have a few minutes, it’s worth giving yourself a little facial massage to get the blood flowing and help dispel fine lines, reduce puffiness and dark circles. It’s the perfect texture for a facial massage and it gives you a few moments longer to enjoy the soothing spa-like scent. Once you are done, it removes quickly and easily with a flannel or cloth and then you can follow up with a second gel cleanse. It works wonders on my skin and it’s an absolute joy to use!
