How I like to use this:
I personally cant bare to use the cloth provided to remove my full face of make-up from the day initially, as I don’t want to turn the pure white cloth into a foundation stained mess (lol).
1. I start by wetting my face using warm water using my hands.
2. I then take a small amount of cleanser and rub it between my fingers and use small circular motions to apply to the skin.
3. I remove this pre cleanse using my regular face cloth and rinse.
4. I then repeat step 2 to cleanse my skin and then remove using the Emma Hardie cloth provided, to remove any last traces.
5. Pat dry, tone & moisturise.

If I decide to take my makeup off whilst watching TV and be lazy, I use a Micellaire water to remove the make-up and then use the Emma Hardie Cleanser and Cloth provided afterwards to really cleanse my skin and give it a nice pamper before bed.

Why I like it:
Get a generous amount for a ‘starter kit’
– Small amount goes a long way
– Gentle on the skin and eye area, doesn’t sting
– Melts all make-up off instantly
– Quick and easy to use
– The texture when rubbed into the skin, really feels luxurious
– Leaves my skin feeling, soft, smoother and moisturised

The Downfalls:
– Not the best for travelling
– I’m personally not a fan of the scent of the product, as it is quite strong and smells quite ‘zesty’ and ‘floral’… that’s the best way I can describe it!
– It is quite pricey, if used regularly
– I do feel this is best suited for a drier maturer skin, due to how the balm has left my skin feeling after.

Overall Verdict:
I do believe this product is best suited for someone who has a normal to dry skin, purely because of the oils in the products. I wouldn’t recommend this for someone who has an incredibly oily skin or skin which is very sensitive to heavily fragranced products.
I do believe this is the perfect cleanser for these upcoming winter months, as its a very rich luxurious product, so will leave the driest of skins beautifully soft and hydrated in the harsh cold and windy months.
This 50ml product will last you roughly about 2-3 months on everyday use, as a small amount goes a long way which is great. However I have used other cleansing products which are slightly cheaper which have lasted double the amount longer, due to getting more product (100ml+).
This set is perfect for someone like myself who is wanting to try this cleanser before handing over £38 for 100g of product or £59 for 200g of product.
The cloth is of lovely quality and is definitely a requirement when using this product as it really helps to melt and remove any traces of remaining oil on the skin, in a gentle non abrasive way, brilliant for daily use.

Let me know if you would like to hear about the cream provided?
