Emma Hardie Amazing Face

eh pro cleanse kit

It’s going to be very hard not to let this post get ridiculously long. I’m going to do my very best, though.

A little while ago I was introduced to the world of Emma Hardie products after wanting to try them for what felt like forever. I’m so glad I waited as I was then able to watch a demo by Emma and listen to her passionately talk about her products. It’s made the world of difference and I’m completely hooked. Not just on the products but also the techniques she shared with us.

The standout for me has to be the Pro Cleansing system. The Moringa Cleansing Balm is a dream. It’s totally turned my skin around and it hasn’t looked this good in years! It’s one of those products that you put on a dry face with dry hands at the end of the day and then massage in while it melts away your makeup. Then you massage it off with the soft side of Emma’s specially designed cloth and some hot water. You’re left feeling refreshed, relaxed and your skin will glow immediately.

Sounds like a lot of massaging, right? It’s the massage that is key here. If you ever have the time or means to book in a session with Emma at her clinic to learn her massage techniques I couldn’t recommend it enough. Having been doing it on myself and my models it’s been life changing. My own skin is firmer, more refined and definitely looking younger. It also encourages my skin and muscles to behave in a way that defines my features more so my cheeks and chin are looking less puffy. My models all love the relaxing massage as part of their skin prep and it makes my job so much easier as they instantly look revived and gorgeous!

The other thing I can’t live without is the new Hydrating Lighter Lotion. I’ve been using it on myself as a day lotion when the weather has been warm or humid lately. The smell is just too gorgeous for words. It’s all the rose, geranium and peppermint oils that make me feel like it’s going to be an amazing day. This is what I’ve also been using on set to prep models’ skin as well. I get them to breathe deeply while I put it on and that’s when I give them their facial massage. It creates the perfect canvas to start work on a beautiful base that looks fresh and natural.

I’ve noticed since using it that my skin tone is a lot more even and I think it’s had a big impact on the luminous appearance I’ve been able to achieve. It’s a very light texture and I just use one pump. It doesn’t make my skin feel overloaded at all and I feel like I don’t need quite as much night cream over the top as I would otherwise.

eh foaming wash

Finally, the Moringa Foaming Wash has also become a morning must have. I wouldn’t ordinarily use a foaming cleanser but this is the exception to my rule. I put a pump and a half all over my face first thing and let it get to work while I brush my teeth. Then I massage it off using my Konjac sponge, follow with the lotion and I’m ready to face the day. It smells and feels gorgeous! It’s super gentle and I like how it leaves my skin feeling fresh but not tight in the mornings.

I’ve included links to each of the products in this post and to Emma’s clinic as well. To read more about Emma’s amazing story and how she came to create all of these products you can click here. It’s a fascinating story and one that will very probably get you as hooked on these techniques and products as I am. I can’t see myself finding anything I prefer to these products any time soon. I couldn’t be happier with how my complexion is looking. Even my impending birthday and being another year older isn’t bothering me as much as usual!

Thanks for this great review Rebecca. I have used some of the EH products with varying results but I really like hearing Emma talk (she is on QVC every now and again) because she talks so much sense. Glad that they are working for you. Jan
