|Emma Hardie amazing face Moringa Cleansing Balm|
You must understand what this means. I am a freak with my skin. To rub a thick Vaseline like crap all over my face AND rub it off with that rough washcloth??? no ways no ways. Even the thought of using a grainy, physical exfoliant on my face brings chills down my spine. But then how was I converted to cleansing balm + washcloth?
well.... the initial credit goes to viviannadoesmakeup.com. After seeing her almost exclusively use this cleanser for months, I decided to finally bite the bullet.
Please excuse my shabby, cracked container. I am really not a fan of this chunky, plasticky doorknob. The lid cracked the first week I started using it. Plus the product started to separate (oil and the balm) within days. Wait... I thought you liked this product... you may wonder.
Yes, yes! I love this product. Despite all the unattractiveness from the outside, I love the versatility of this product. I can use this as a morning cleanser, 2nd cleanser at night (after a quick first cleanse with an oil product), and a hydrating mask.
My favorite way to utilize this product is to use it as a combo of 2nd cleanse + hydrating mask. When I get home at night, the first thing I do is remove my makeup. After a quick oil cleanse, I apply a generous amount of this cleansing balm on my face. I then carry on with my life for a few hours. When I am ready to go to sleep, I massage my face to enhance the circulation to my face, wash it off with a warm washcloth, and apply my night skincare products. The results in the morning = @.@
Although this sounds like a lot, it actually is quite time saving. The initial oil cleanse takes off my waterproof makeup in seconds. And the 2nd cleanse/hydrating masks negates the need for a separate time/product for a weekly hydrating mask. Although I do have many other hydrating masks... hehe... sometimes life gets too busy for conventional hydrating masks! The best part is that I can walk around with this balm on for hours, even for my combo/oily skin. You can definitely control the amount of this balm to suite your own skin type.
