Emma Hardie- Spring clean your skin

When it comes to Spring skincare, I want products that are not as heavy feeling on my skin but ones that will do as good as job at looking after and caring for my skin.  In the winter I like my thicker balms and creams because the colder weather plays havoc with my skin, it is much dryer and in need of some TLC for sure.  In the Spring, I tend to use a variety of products depending on how my skin feels, but the one absolute must is SPF, all year round, no questions asked.   Emma Hardie has a wonderful arsenal of products, but this particular trio is a great way to look after your skin in the Spring.

Emma Hardie is perhaps best known for the Moringa Cleansing Balm (£47) and for me, it was my introduction to the brand and I haven't looked back since it is a product that is always in my stash and it is something I absolutely love.  When used with the Moringa Light Cleansing Gel, these two products together create the best double cleansing partnership.  

Emma suggests starting your cleanse with the Moringa Light Cleansing Gel (£34) by massaging it onto damp skin which then turns the gel into a lightweight oil that gently breaks down makeup. Adding more water to the skin as you massage then turns the oil into a milky emulsion which you wash away.  If you are a fan of the Cleansing Balm, then you will love this Gel which I have written a full review here on my blog.  As with the Moringa Cleansing Balm, the Light Cleansing Gel has that exact same Citrus scent and I use the Gel in a morning when there is little need to double cleanse and then both in an evening for my double cleanse.

Once you have finished with that first cleanse, then you use the Moringa Cleansing Balm which cleans the pores as well as hydrates, moisturises and conditions the skin.  The balm is enriched with antioxidant Moringa Seed extract which, like the gel, gives it that incredible Citrus scent, Wild Sea Fennel and Vitamin E which work alongside the Grape Seed and Sweet Almond Oils. On the skin, it performs a deep cleanse, and manages to remove anything in its path, be it your waterproof mascara or your foundation, as it does so, the balm also works to decongest the skin and pores too. 

I am a huge fan of the Emma Hardie Cleansing Cloths too and I use the softer microfibre side to exfoliate and polish my skin and then the softer muslin side to ensure everything has been removed.

The final product within this trio is the Protect and Prime SPF30 (£46)As mentioned, I wear SPF all year round, whether it rains, snows or it is those rare occasions, sunny.  What I dislike about sunscreen is how it feels on the skin, I really dislike that thickness feeling, so when it comes to my face, I don't want something that makes it feel as though I've rubbed a block of lard onto my skin.

Protect and Prime is described as being a crème that safeguards the skin and hides visible imperfections in preparation for the day that lies ahead. What I like about it is that this product is so lightweight you don't even know it is on your skin. It doesn't linger on the surface of the skin, it doesn't turn white if you have oily skin and nor does it irritate.

Designed to offer up to eight hours of protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays emitted by the sun, Protect and Prime SPF30 has light-diffusing particles present in the crème which work to even out texture and skin tone while at the same time ensuring that enlarged pores and fine lines are reduced in their appearance.  It uses Oat extract, mongongo oil and vitamin E which come together to form a protective barrier around the skin, helping to repair damaged skin and reducing the appearance of premature ageing signs.

  8. I love the Moringa Cleansing Balm, so I need try the gel. I love the sound of the SPF too, I hate when they feel thick, heavy and greasy on the skin. I love Bioderma's Photoderm Max Cream SPF50+, it's such a gorgeous SPF to use & feels very light on the skin, just like a normal moisturiser. Xx
