Happy 10th Birthday Emma Hardie Skincare

This year Emma Hardie Skincare is celebrating 10 innovative years of must-have, award-winning skincare products.  Launching back in 2009, the brands' best-selling product is the Moringa Cleansing Balm and not only has it gained cult status amongst beauty editors, Emma Hardie Fans, influences, celebrities, make-up artists and it is one of my must-have products too.

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the brand, Emma Hardie Skincare are launching a limited edition 200ml Moringa Cleansing Balm complete with Rosehip Exfoliating Seeds and Dual Action Cleansing Cloth.  

You might also have noticed that the box has had a bit of a makeover too and that is because the 10th Anniversary limited-edition packaging features a botanical illustration design which references some of the brand's best-loved ingredients and it was created by leading journalist and illustrator Susannah Taylor.

Emma Hardie Rosehip Exfoliating Seeds
If you have never come across the Moringa Cleansing Balm before, it is one of those products that you cannot help but absolutely love.   Described as being a purifying botanical cleansing balm that removes all traces of face and eye make-up, deeply cleanses the pores as well as balancing, hydrating and moisturising all skin types. Packed full of amazing ingredients, you will find:

  • Grape Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil rich in essential fatty acids help to plump and soften
  • Moringa seed extract, Wild Sea Fennel and Vitamin E balance, purify and help to minimise the appearance of open pores
  • Essential oils of Orange, Neroli and Mandarin rejuvenate and revitalise the skin whilst calming the senses
  • Jasmine and Rose help to recondition dull, dry, dehydrated and mature skins

For me, this is the perfect way to take off the day and it is a great first cleanser for my double cleanse. I apply with my fingers and gently massage onto the skin, moving in circular motions as I go. Then, when I am ready to remove, I use my Emma Hardie Cleansing cloth which will have been soaking in warm water, squeeze out the excess water and wipe away what is left. You can also use this balm as an overnight facial too.

I love the inclusion of the Rosehip seeds within this Anniversary set and I have used them before from the Christmas collection. The idea with these seeds is that you add just a pinch of the seeds to the balm for a gentle exfoliation whilst you cleanse, they are not at all abrasive on the skin and it really does give a wonderful bespoke at home facial.

Finally, the Dual Action Cleansing Cloth is perfect for use with the cleansing balm.  One side of the cloth is a gentle microfibre material for deep cleansing and removal whereas the other side is a muslin cloth for polishing the skin. 

To further celebrate 10 years of Emma Hardie Skincare, hidden inside 5 Limited Edition boxes are 5 Golden Tickets and each Golden Ticket entitles the winner to £500 worth of products from Emma Hardie.  If that isn't enough, throughout the year, Emma Hardie Skincare Facialists will be offering the Natural Lift and Sculpt Facial - described as being a unique non-evasive relaxing facial treatment.  This facial incorporates a rejuvenating one-hour linear massage technique which helps to drain away toxins, reduce puffiness as well as releasing tension in the face and boosting circulation - now this I would sign up for!

This Limited Edition 10th Anniversary Moringa Cleansing Balm 200ml is priced at £68 and is available at Cult Beauty*, M&S Beauty*, SpaceNK and the Emma Hardie Website right now.

Fushi Sea Buckthorn Organic Oil

I have featured Fushi on my blog a few times now, I first got to know the brand via their Rose and Jasmine Collection followed by the Fushi Bio-Vedic Face Care Collection and most recently the Fushi Pomegranate Oil.  Today I am sharing the newest launch of the Fushi Sea Buckthorn Oil (50ml). 
Fushi Sea Buckthorn Organic Oil
Fushi (which means ‘eternal life’) began with the combined cultural heritage of the founders Rannesh Jansari and Ria Pattni. Both were handed down ayurvedic family recipes by their grand-parents who blended oils and infused herbs to create natural remedies. Fushi uses only the purest ingredients, sourced from the most ethical producers and freshly blend them in our London workshop to create award-winning products.

Sea Buckthorn Oil is renowned for its Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7), Provitamin A (carotenoids, in particular, beta carotene) and vitamins E and K. This oil contains a high concentration of the incredibly rare Palmitoleic acid which is described as being a fatty acid that naturally occurs in the sebum of the skin. This fatty acid promotes nourishment, protection of the skin and is known to support skin cells and aid healing.
The robust deep red berries which produce our Organic Sea Buckthorn oil are the most nutritious and unusual of indigenous fruits, found primarily in Europe and parts of Asia, predominantly in mountainous regions. Our berries are grown sustainably in Germany from which this oil is extracted in its virgin form, using a pure mechanical separation procedure to retain the oil’s natural composition and potency. Our unrefined 100% pure Sea Buckthorn oil is of an orange hue and has a beautiful fruity scent.
It really does have a bright orange-red hue and when I first tried using it, I was so surprised by the brightness of that orange, I was worried I would turn into an Oompa Loompa if I put it on my skin, thankfully I haven't because it does wash off. I also happen to just absolutely love the wonderfully fruity scent.
Fushi Sea Buckthorn Organic Oil Swatch
As you can see from the photo above, which is unedited, the oil from the bottle is definitely a shade of orange-red you won't miss.

This Sea Buckthorn Oil is quite the multitasking product because as well as helping to regenerate the skin to help nourish dry skin, help with the healing of scars, sunburn and other conditions, it can also be used for the following:
  • Rejuvenate and renew your hair - Due to its rich nutrient profile, a few drops of Sea Buckthorn Oil can also benefit your hair and scalp. It is packed with Vitamins A and E which as we know are super antioxidants and they help to fight aging in the hair and it does this by combatting dryness, brittleness, thinning and breakage. It also contains Vitamins B1,B2 and B6 and again, each one of these vitamins is essential for the rejuvenation and creation of healthy skin, hair and blood.
  • Vitamins for the nails - Again the Vitamin profile alongside the Sea Buckthorn Oil can help fortify the nails by stimulating collagen production while smoothing and nourishing your cuticles.
It doesn't end there either. Sea Buckthorn Oil has been used as a natural remedy for thousands of years against various ailments. Taken internally, it is known to be beneficial for inflammation, supporting digestion and weight management because of its ability to help with balancing the sugar. It also promotes healthy skin, hair and eyes.  So using 1-2 teaspoons daily, or drizzled over a salad or blended into your daily smoothie.

This Oil costs £25 for 50ml from Fushi and it is a great oil if you are looking to purchase something that is a great multitasker and a product which looks after you inside and out.
