In celebration of the brand's 10th birthday, Emma Hardie has added a new product to the Moringa range. For those who tried the Moringa Cleansing Balm and found that it was a tad too rich for their skin or prefer something a little lighter in texture for mornings, the new Moringa Light Cleansing Gel is just the ticket!
This cleansing gel is suitable for vegans and the ingredient list is packed with skin-loving ingredients. There are three oils, which will nourish the skin - Moringa, Sweet Almond and Grapefruit (they also smell amazing!), Sea Fennel Extract, which helps to improve the skin's barrier function (read more about the skin barrier in Anne's post here), Moringa Seed Peptides, which protect the skin from pollution, and Omega 6, essential fatty acids and vitamin E, which help to moisturise and soften the skin.
It can be used to remove makeup but I personally prefer to use a balm, oil or micellar water to do that and follow with a product to actually cleanse my skin. My preference is to use this in conjunction with the Moringa balm, as a second cleanse in the evenings or as my morning cleanser.
It can be used on wet or dry skin so if you like to cleanse in the shower, this will work for you. I prefer to do my skincare routine separately but I imagine that if you are very short on time in the morning, cleansing in the shower saves some time! The texture is pliable so it's easy to really massage into the skin. I like to apply it to dry skin, then massage in thoroughly before adding water to emulsify and then rinsing thoroughly. It leaves skin feeling very soft, thoroughly cleansed and looking bright. There is no film left on the skin and the gel texture is actually quite refreshing, which is why I prefer it as my morning cleanse.
I think that all skin types would enjoy Emma Hardie Moringa Light Cleansing Gel. If you want to try it, it's exclusive to Marks & Spencer at the moment with a price tag of £34. I'm hoping that they release a duo pack with the balm and cleansing gel in the future.
