Midweek Post: Emma Hardie Deluxe Sample.

I applied on to receive a luxury sample of Emma Hardie's Moringa Cleansing Balm from her Amazing Face skincare range and I was lucky enough to get a lovely package on my doorstep with a generous 15ml sample inside, along with an Emma Hardie facecloth about ten days later. This cleansing balm has been on my wishlist for about 6 months now but I've yet to buy it, so I was over the moon when I unwrapped it. 

In the pot, it is a solid balm that you could liken to a lip balm in terms of it's solid consistency. The citrusy moringa scent is fairly strong, this didn't cause any irritation that I noticed, but it's definitely a smell that lingered for a while after the product has been cleaned off.

It felt so luxurious to use; from the packaging, to the ingredients and consistency. I did find I had to use quite a substancial amount for a night time cleanse, but soon learned the best technique to apply this with minimal product wastage.
The facecloth is wonderful. It is more gentle than muslin cloths I have been using and effective at lifting off the product, leaving the skin refreshed and glowing. I'm really pleased that it came with the sample as it certainly improved my experience with the cleanser.

My skin felt great over the week and a half I was using this. It felt plump and refreshed after every cleanse and I didn't experience any dryness. It's hard to give a full review as it was a sample size, but I suppose it all wittles down to this: Will I buy this product? And the answer is yes, I know that I want to use this again and to have a full sized tub in my possession would make me extremely happy. I would recommend both this cleanser and WhatsInMyHandbag, both have served me well. (Thankyou!)


  1. Ooh, that's so good you managed to get a sample! The product sounds great, it's something I've seen a few times on blogs but definitely not in my price range unfortunately! xo

  2. This looks lovely, thanks for the review! x

  3. I love this too. The cloth is briiliant, I still use it with my other cleansers. The microfibre removes the cleanser so quickly and the muslin side seems to do a better job than other muslins I've tried.

  4. love this cleanser... its soo good. the full size packaging also comes with beads that you can add to the cleanser and transforms in a exfoliant... it is on my christmas list, of course... hehe ;) xx

  5. oooooo what a lovely little sample, it sounds so nice :) always a good sign when someone says they would purchase the full size :) x

  6. well your officially a bad influence ive just ordered a started sample set of this from whats in my handbag :) x
