Beauty masks are everywhere these days – so let’s trial one every other Friday from now on. From sheet masks, to clay masks, to cream masks, and everything inbetween.
EMMA HARDIE MORINGA RENEWAL TREATMENT MASK, £49. SPACE NK
OKAY, so I’ve been a bit lax with this blog post series – it’s been a few months since our last Face Mask Friday, I admit. Mea culpa and all that. But here we are, back with a beauty of a mask from the lovely Emma Hardie.
Back in 2009, Emma launched her Moringa Cleansing Balm, and it became a huge favourite with beauty editors, makeup artists and bloggers, and became a best-seller. I used the Cleansing Balm from launch until around 2015, when my skin reacted to something in it – and I was gutted. Three years later, I was a bit scared to try this new mask, for fear of a similar reaction – but so far, so good!
I am a massive Emma Hardie fan. This is her new Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask. It’s not cheap, but Emma is a genius facialist, and her products are great. I used to use her Moringa Cleansing Balm religiously until a few years ago. I really need to try it out again. This mask is out now, £49. More on the 5pm blog soon! . . . #beauty #facemask #mask #fridayfacemask #beaute #bblogger #beautyblogger #skincare #moringamask #emmahardie
I might even get back to the cleansing balm at this rate!
But for now, the mask. This rich and intense face mask contains Resistem Plant Stem Cell Beauty Bodyguard, which aims to improve the evenness of your complexion, stimulate cell detoxification, protect the skin from stress, and reduce and neutralise pro-ageing agents.
To ensure optimum absorption of the mask, always prepare your skin first. Massafe your skin with our Moringa Cleansing Balm and a pinch of our exfoliating rose hip seeds to remove any dead skin cells, warm the skin and increase circulation. Rinse and remove the balm with warm water and a microfibre cloth to create the perfect ;mask ready’ base for the Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask – Emma Hardie
It also contains Hyaluronic Acid for hydration, and Hyaluronic Filling Spheres which help to plump the skin and smooth deep wrinkles. There’d Red Algae to help with pigmentation issues, an Amino Acid derivative to brighten the skin, and Edelweiss Extract for soothing.
It feels great on, and I like to leave it on overnight for an intense treatment. Ordinarily you leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. And, if you want to use it in warm weather (whatever that is!) then pop it in the fridge for a cooling facial pick-me-up.
