I’ve been lusting after the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm but banned myself from buying any more cleansers until I’d made a decent dent in my current stash. So to avoid buying the cleanser I bought some Emma Hardie hand cream or to give it its full name *takes deep breath* Emma Hardie Amazing Face Hand and Nail Treatment cream. It was a 2-4-1 deal so how could I resist?
I have very dry hands so am always looking for a cream that will turn my crocodile skin to silk. I love L’Occitane’s Shea Butter handcream but variety is the spice of life so I put the Emma Hardie cream to the test.
EMMA HARDIE says:
|EMMA HARDIE SAYS||WONDERLUSTING SAYS|
|“Rich in Shea Butter and Moringa Oil to moisturise and condition the skin and Vitamin E to protect the skin from toxins and pollution”||My hands certainly felt moisturised and silky smooth after an application of the handcream|
|“Includes a complex blend of 7 Alpine plants (Aplhaflor Gigawhite), Moringa seed oil and Vitamin E that help reduce the appearance of age-spots and lighten skin tone and condition the skin”||I didn’t notice any skin tone lightening. I have a few freckles but not what I’d call age spots so nothing to comment on. Skin felt smoother so guess that is conditioned.|
|“Hyaluronic Acid to restore volume to mature, dehydrated and stressed skin by increasing moisture content and Keratin to strengthen nails and cuticles”||As already mentioned, my hands felt softer and smoother when I used the hand cream. I use a separate cuticle oil so didn’t notice my nails feeling extra strengthened|
The Emma Hardie hand cream is a luxurious product that certainly leaves the hands feeling nourished, soft and silky smooth. It has a gorgeous light scent that wasn’t overpowering. However a couple of things stopped me from loving it. I found the texture to be just a little bit too viscous so when I squeezed the tube more of the hand cream than I wanted came out. This made it a little wasteful especially for the high price tag. The packaging is also not the most user friendly. The cream sometimes seeped out of the hole in the lid and made a mess.
I really really really liked the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Hand and Nail Treatment but I didn’t love it. And when I’m paying £24 for a tube of handcream I want to be writing sonnets about my undying love. I bought it as part of a 2-4-1 deal so I don’t feel robbed.
Oh I ended up buying the Emma Hardie moringa balm cleanser in the end anyway so the moral of this story is just buy the thing you really want in the first place!
