Emma Hardie Moringa Light Cleansing Gel

Give your skin a spring clean this month with the brand new Moringa Light Cleansing Gel from cult brand Emma Hardie.

This lightweight daily cleanser is formulated in one of my favourite ways for cleansers- melting!

This gel-cleanser smells incredible (think a spa!) and has been created to purify, hydrate and balance oily skin which is perfect for my skin type.

Housed within a tall elegant bottle it exudes luxury and indeed, the experience of cleansing with it is rather luxurious. 

Gentle enough to refresh and revitalise your skin it simultaneously removes impurities and helps to protect your skin from environmental damage.

Containing a blend of Moringa and Sweet Almond Oil it offers a deeply nourishing element while Omega 6 and Vitamin E from Grapeseed Oil and essential fatty acids work to smooth, soften and moisturise.

Sea Fennel extract helps to improve the barrier function of the skin an restores the water balance while Moringa seed peptides protect skin from pollution.

The result is soft, beautiful, purified skin that glows with health.

I am so in love with this cleanser! Slightly yellow in tone and jelly like upon initial application, when applied and massaged into wet or dry skin it transforms into a silky almost oil like texture which works to break down make up and daily grime and dirt.

Its actually been described as a ‘Spa in a jar’ and id say that’s pretty darn accurate thanks to its familiar soft citrus scent.

Once massaged in, simply use warm water to emulsify the gel, turning it into a milky cleanser which gently removes impurities without stripping your skin.

Using this cleanser makes me look forward to my morning and evening cleanse!

Beauty Pie Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser

If you love luxury skincare and beauty but haven’t heard of Beauty Pie then before we go any further you need to read my post HERE explaining how it all works.

Now you need to understand, that I have waited almost two months for this cleanser to come back in stock. It is THAT popular. 

Made in Japan, Beauty Pie’s Japanfusion™ Pure Transforming Cleanser is a superlight melting cleanser designed for all skin types and we ALL know how much I love a melting cleanser!

Packaged in a really sleek, chic, pinky tube it is a full 100ml so you’re getting a lot of cleanser for your money, which by the way, if you’re a member is just £5.89. I know. Bonkers isn’t it.

Fragrance and colour free, this cleanser has been antioxidant infused and features a high tech gel-to-oil-to-milk cleansing balm.

Thick and rich in texture it quickly glides across dry skin, allowing you to gently massage the product into your face. 

Formulated with a moisture lock complex it features a quadruple-action Pombe Yeast derivative that delivers moisture and firmness, visibly re-energizes the complexion and reducing visible lines and wrinkles through deep hydration and skin-surface nourishing.

Jabara extract (antioxidant ingredient harvested from the Japanese citrus fruit, rich in Vitamin C and polyphenols) helps inhibit the appearance of pigmented spots, and helps keep free radicals from aging the look of your face.

Something rather complex called Delamyth Dna+  is an extract from the peels of the Delaware grape which is proven to help soothe the skin and to counteract UV-related free radical damage with excellent antioxidant activities.

No cleanser would be complete without some Vitamin E thrown in for some extra antioxidant protection and deep skin moisturization.

I cam see why this cleanser is constantly out of stock.

Gentle, sleek, soft and wonderful it glides across your skin, removing all traces of make-up and grime as it goes. 

Despite its thickness when dispensed it is actually really light in texture- probably due to its high tech gel to oil to milk situation and once splashed with warm water the gel emulsifies into a nourishing milk, leaving your skin feeling clean, refreshed and gorgeous.

I wasn’t 100% convinced that such a light cleanser could remove all my make-up so I stuck to my tried and tested ‘toner on a pad’ experiment and do you know, not a single smear of make-up was left on my face.


I will say that despite being described as suitable for everyone, it did leave my skin feeling a little tight after so I may try the equally popular Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleaning Balm which I’ve heard may be better for drier skin.

If you want to get your hands on this mega cleanser at a seriously ridiculous price you ned to Hurry before it sells out again to head to Beauty Pie now!

Marc Jacobs Shameless Youthful Look 24 Hour Foundation

I don’t tend to wear foundation- partially because I don’t et the time in the mornings to doll myself up properly but also because I like to try and let me skin breathe as much as possible.

This innovative foundation (pictured in shade Light R230) features a clever self-setting technology meaning that no loose powder or setting spray is necessary which I LOVE because it is this element of ‘setting’ my foundation that leaves me feeling like I’m wearing a mask and it begins to feel heavy and cakey. Not so here.

Marc Jacobs has it SO right when he says;

 "The idea of Shameless and showing your true colours is being who you are, unapologetic and proud. One of the most important characteristics, in terms of a contemporary, youthful look, is not that heavy sort of makeup, but something that’s fresh and breathes and allows radiance and the texture of the skin to come through."  

I’d describe it as a medium coverage formula and its oil-free, weightless texture allows for easy buildability while its patented Infinity Milling process produces super-fine pigments that result in the most natural-looking, self-setting finish.

Clinically tested for 24 hours of wear, Marc Jacobs’ Shameless Youthful-Look Longwear Foundation contains a first-to-market technology that encapsulates the SPF in the pigment. 

This innovation makes the SPF visibly undetectable meaning that there’s no flashback in photos and no ashy, grey undertones in the formula.

Its really impressive!

It has a HUGE range of different shades available so there will definitely be one to suit every skin-tone.

Quite apart from its beautiful application and flawless finish the foundation beautifies from the inside out, providing skincare benefits too!

It contains snow mushroom, which is known for its ability to hold onto water (nature’s hyaluronic acid). 

The formula also contains blue daisy extract which is known to visibly diminish the complexion-dulling effects of pollution. 

The overall effect is a foundation that leaves you looking healthy and skin feeling plumped, hydrated and more youthful.
