It contains sweet almond, moringa seed and grapeseed oils which are great for getting rid of makeup and improving radiance. It also has sea fennel in it which is known as a bit of a miracle worker on open pores (music to my ears!) It smells incredible, really herby and spa-like. I rub a small amount of this all over my face, including my eyes, then warm up a hot flannel and remove.
I've honestly never found anything as effective as this for removing my makeup. It's also seriuously gentle and doesn't strip my skin or leave a film behind. My skin is combination/dehydrated which meant that this was sort of a dream product as it really targeted all my areas of concern; hydration, texture and open pores.
The balm is coupled with a rough textured flannel which you are meant to use in a series of special moves designed at sculpting the face. I've never quite got the hang of this, and to be honest I'm a little to lazy in the evening to bother. I'm more of a slap it on and scrub away type of gal!
It took me roughly a month to get through a mini tub of this. So did I repurchase... No, I didn't. It wasn't that I didn't want to, but at £34 I just didn't have the cash to part with! I ended up repurchasing a trusty tube of Liz Earle with a promise to myself that next pay day I will definitely be heading into Space NK to get my Emma Hardie fix. I'm so hooked that I've even held on to the empty tub just so I can have a sniff every now and then!
