The Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm by Emma Hardie is one of the most popular skincare products from the British beauty brand. The brand must definitely be assigned to luxury care due to the prices. I probably would not have bought the Cleanser myself. Nevertheless, I am glad that I was able to test this facial cleansing product on the basis of a cooperation. Today you will find out whether I can recommend it and whether I would buy it in terms of the high price.

The bestsellers of the skincare brand include the Moringa Cleansing Balm, the Protect and Prime Moisturiser SPF 30, and the Brilliance Facial Oil.


Facts about the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm

Visually you can tell directly that you are dealing with a luxury skincare product. The packaging is of high quality and very classy and timeless. You get a microfiber cloth with the balm. With this, one can later remove the balm very well from the skin. The massive crucible holds 100ml of the Cleansing Balm. The price is between 55-60 €.

The facial cleanser by Emma Hardie is described as an all-rounder. It should be used both for daily cleaning, as a nourishing balm for dry skin areas and as a face mask.

The care balm is enriched with Moringa seed extract, wild sea fennel and vitamin E. Because of this, the product has both a moisturizing and cleansing effect. The Balm also contains grape seed and sweet almond oil, which fill up the complexion and make it supple.


Ingredients of Emma Hardie's Moringa Cleansing Balm

The list of ingredients of Emma Hardie’s cleaner is quite long. At first she almost killed me. Nevertheless, I struggled through the individual fabrics to be able to assess whether the facial cleanser was formulated mildly. 🙂

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm ingredients

First I noticed that the Cleansing Balm contains different types of emulsifiers (PEG-8 BEESWAX, PEG-6 CAPRYLIC / CAPRIC GLYCERIDES, PEG-60 ALMOND GLYCERIDES). Two of them are of vegetable origin, the first-mentioned emulsifier consists of beeswax. As a result, Emma Hardie Cleanser is not vegan. Emulsifiers are auxiliaries that are needed to mix immiscible liquids with each other (eg to combine oil and water). Emulsifiers can be found in various skincare products. The best known are the PEG’s, which are also in this facial cleansing product.

They are not without controversy since PEG’s can weaken the skin’s barrier function. For example, pollutants and toxins from the environment can penetrate the skin more quickly. If you often use products with emulsifiers, this leads to the skin being dried out. I am not so critical of the use of PEG’s in a cleaner (but I am also not an Inci-Pro!). Since I wash the product right after cleaning it, I think it is not that dramatic. After all, the product doesn’t stay on my skin.

It also contains PHENOXYETHANOL, which acts as a preservative. This substance is said to have irritation and allergy potential. As the last ingredient, which is not irritant, we would have BUTYLENE CLYCOL. This is a polyhydric alcohol. This can irritate the skin in higher concentrations. In the ingredient list of the Cleansing Balm it is in the lower third. Accordingly, I assume that the concentration is rather low. In any case, my skin did not react to the alcohol it contained.

Now, of course, let’s take a look at the good ingredients. We are the first INCI to find grapeseed oil . Since it is at the top of the list, the concentration seems to be high. Grapeseed oil has a strong antioxidant effect. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and is perfect for the care of acne, mixed, and oily skin. It is also very good anti-aging care. In second place we find sweet almond oil. It is particularly suitable for normal, dry, and sensitive skin. It soothes the skin and cares for it at the same time. The Moringa Cleansing Balm also contains other oils that have nourishing properties.

Broadly speaking, the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm is fairly well worded. It has many nourishing ingredients.


After I have shown you the ingredients in more detail, you are now interested in whether the facial cleanser worked well for me.

But before I tell you more about my experiences, I would like to briefly discuss the scent of the skincare product. First of all, I have a pretty strong sense of smell (which can often be an advantage but also a disadvantage!).

The Emma Hardie skin care product contains, as the name suggests, moringa. You wonder what that is exactly ?! Let me explain briefly.

Moringa is a tree that is native to subtropical areas. There it is considered a food and medicine. In the meantime, its good properties have spread all over the world, so that its oil is also used more and more in the beauty industry. The oil is extracted from the fruits of the tree. Above all, this oil has anti-aging properties – it improves cell regeneration, can reduce wrinkles, make the skin more fine-pored and is considered a miracle weapon against pigment spots.

Absolutely great, isn’t it ?! I am also very impressed with these great properties of the tree. Nevertheless, I had to struggle with the intense smell with the Emma Hardie product. He is really very present – not uncomfortable, but strong. So if you are very sensitive to smell, then the scent could overwhelm you. On some days the fragrance was too much for me, so I resorted to another facial cleanser. 😀


Experience with the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm

How has it been with the luxury cleansing balm by Emma Hardie ?! I will answer this question for you now.

The balm is placed in the dry palms. A tiny amount is enough for the entire face; in the beginning, i used too much! Afterward, I rubbed it in my hands for so long (only takes a few seconds!) Until an oily consistency is created. I always massaged this emulsion into my skin in circular movements. I was even able to work on the eye area with the balm without my eyes starting to water or become irritated!

Moringa Cleansing Balm by Emma Hardie in use

With the moistened microfiber cloth by Emma Hardie (you can, of course, take another one! It also works perfectly with the ➔ reusable make-up pads from pandoo (Review) ). I removed the product and my make-up.

After cleaning with the Cleansing Balm, the skin feels incredibly soft and cared for. In addition, it does not tension. The Moringa Cleansing Balm perfectly removes even strong make-up from the skin. The cleaning performance is really top – so I can absolutely understand the hype about this luxury skincare product! I have never had a facial cleanser that frees your face from makeup so well!

In my opinion, the price is also relativized due to its productiveness. The product can be used for many months, even with daily use.

So that you can convince yourself of the great cleaning performance of the Balm, I have prepared a short Unswatch video for you. 🙂


Although I find both the ingredients and the cleaning performance (which is on top!) Really good, I am currently not planning to buy the Emma Hardie Cleanser. As soon as it is empty I would like to look for a less intensely scented cleansing balm . Don’t get me wrong, the product is really good, but after a few months of almost daily use, the smell really gets on my biscuit! 🙂

I just want to test other Cleansing Balm’s and see if they can keep up with Emma Hardie’s. At the beginning of 2018, I already had the popular ➔ banila co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm (Review) used. He removed make-up well, but I didn’t particularly like the ingredients. But I already have two cleaners on my wish list for 2020 that I really want to try. So look forward to further reviews in the coming year! 😀

Do you use drugstore or luxury skincare products to remove make-up?
