      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I love the product, I don't love the price tag!

      Ages ago I was sent a generous sized tub of the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Balm Cleanser in a beauty box along with an Emma Hardie face cloth. At the time I hadn't heard of Emma Hardie products but I love trying different cleansers so was excited to try this out. Unfortunately this somehow got put into a box and forgotten about for a while, but I saw someone talking about this in a video on Youtube, so dug it out and have been using it for a while now.

      The first thing I noticed about this was the packaging, which is absolutely beautiful. It comes boxed and the pot that this comes in looks really good quality and expensive. It's a sort of silvery-gold colour with a thick clear plastic wall around it and it immediately gives the impression of being a luxury product.

      The product is described as being 'lift and sculpt' which may indicate it is for the more mature woman, however it seems to have gained a bit of a cult following amongst younger girls. There is no indication on the box of what skin type this is for.

      The cleanser itself is a pale yellow colour and in the tub it looks a lot like petroleum jelly. It has a very unusual texture which is hard to describe, but I'd say it's kind of like a thick, greasy balm.

      I was worried I wouldn't like the scent, as the only other moringa products I recall are those from the Body Shop, and although I don't recall exactly what they smelled like, I do know I wasn't keen on them. This product however, I do like the scent of - it's floral yet not overpowering and I think it smells a lot like evening primrose.

      To use the cleanser, you just scoop some out, mix it with a bit of water in your hand and apply all over your face. When you mix this with water it softens up and turns into a thick white cream. As you smooth it onto your face however, it goes clear and feels like you are applying an oil to your skin. It's very unusual but I really like it. One negative point I have found, is that to cover the entire face you will need to use quite a lot of product - more than I would expect certainly. This cleanser is quite pricey so I find that slightly irritating, as obviously I'd like to have my moneys worth!

      To remove the cleanser you simply soak a cleansing cloth in water, squeeze out any excess and wipe your face. As I mentioned I was sent an Emma Hardie cloth with this. These are sold separately at a cost of £8 for three. Personally, I have used the Emma Hardie cloth, a Liz Earle muslin cloth and a cheap flannel with this product and found absolutely no difference to the way my skin has been afterwards. I therefore wouldn't really recommend paying extra to have the branded cloths.

      In terms of effectiveness I have been really impressed with this product. It will take off all make-up in one application and my skin feels moisturised and soft after use. I did try it once to remove eye make up (including waterproof mascara) and whilst it got most of it off, I did feel that I needed to use a separate eye make up remover to feel that I had got my eye area really clean.

      As well as a cleanser, apparently this product can be used as a 'rescue balm' on dry knees and elbows or even as a lip balm! I haven't tried it in any of these ways, but I suppose that is a bonus and goes to prove how moisturising it is.

      A 100ml pot of this cleanser costs £34 from www.feelunique.com. Despite how good the product is, I do think that is extremely expensive and I'm not sure I would want to spend that much. I think if I did repurchase it would probably be as a one of treat and definitely not an everyday thing.

      Leaving the price out of things, then I would have to say that this is an excellent cleanser and I'd even go so far as to say it's probably the best I have ever used. I suffer from dry skin and the moisturising properties of this product have left my skin hydrated and looking brighter without a doubt. The price tag is the biggest negative point for me - as I said you need quite a lot per use, so you can't be economical with it and therefore I am awarding it four stars out of five.
