Your £13 weekend beauty steal: 5 ways to use Emma Hardie’s Moringa Balm
One pot, five different ways to use it. There’s nothing like a clever multi-tasker when you’re stuffing your hand luggage with the products you’re afraid to leave home without…!
Emma Hardie’s Moringa Balm does a lot of things – it’s a cleanser, calmer, treatment mask (in the bath), spot soother and you can leave it on while you sleep as an overnight facial. (And we haven’t even mentioned summer sandal heels, nails, etc. yet).
The not so good news is her Introductory Amazing Face Set (above – £23) is sold out on Emma’s site and it’s wait-listed at Cult Beauty too but the better news is there’s a Moringa Balm trio with three dual action clothes for £38, worth £57, which works out at about £13 per 50ml pot (beauty steal!)
A nice buy if you’ve got friends who want to split the purchase with you as 50ml should last all summer, well into autumn/winter. (There is a large 100ml pot for £38, so this trio of 50ml x 3 for £38 is better value than the 100ml pot, they’re both priced the same).
You’ll find the 3 x Moringa Balm, 3 x Dual Action Cleansing Cloth set at Cult Beauty HERE
Find two friends and split this set into 3 balms for £13 each – or keep one in the bedroom, one in the bathroom and one in your bag
What’s in it?
Sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, beeswax, mandarin peel oil, moringa seed extract, glycerin, orange, neroli, mandarin, jasmine and rose (fans rave about the scent and if you like Elemis’s cleansing balm, this is very similar although I prefer the scent of this product over the Elemis one). See the listing for the full list of ingredients.
An Overnight Facial
If you’re using it as a treatment mask in the bath, apply before soaking in the tub for 10 mins to allow the botanical oils to absorb.
Dual Action Cloths: half and half
The dual action cloths are great: one side’s 100% cotton (muslin effect), the other is a microfibre mix.
I think facialist-created ranges like Emma Hardie, Sarah Chapman’s Skinesis, Antonia Burrell, Vaishaly, Su-Man and Jane Scrivner really do sit at the very top of the beauty market.
These women know other women’s skin better than anyone. Elemis is another example although I feel that brand has lost its connection with its original founder somewhere along the road, even though there is so much I love about it) while Liz Earle – and everything she’s still doing to promote organic farming and living well, naturally – is a prime example of a beauty success story. And Jo Malone for her incredible, inimitable work with fragrances.
All hail the women who make our world more beautiful.
