I am not got to lie I have been wanting to try the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm for a while now but at £34 a tub it is out of my student friendly budget, but it has been added to the birthday list. So in the meantime I have been putting a drugstore dupe to the test and I have been lovely the results. The product under target is The Ultimelt from Soap & Glory, which I purchased from Boots for £10. I have never used a deep cleansing product of this kind before and I was exciting to try it. For my usual cleansing stage I have been using my beauty find of 2013, which is Bioderma Sensibio H2O - Micelle Solution. If you don't know about this product, where have you been?! Don't stress but I highly recommend it, it is a water based cleanser which you can use over your eyes and face and instantly removes all traces of makeup in one swipe you can buy it from Escentual. The only reason I have tried to mix up my routine by trying this cleansing cleanser, is because I have heard that cleansing waters can be drying on the skin and only take off the top layer of makeup. In comparison to cleansing cleansers and balms which cleanse did down within the skin, and I like to know that every little speck of makeup is off my skin. I use this at night to take off my makeup it says you can use it over your entire face, I was skeptical to use it over my eyes but I did and it did not sting and took off my eye makeup pretty swiftly. It leaves you skin nice and refreshed, and my skin feels lovely and silky smooth after using it. The little muslin cloth which comes with it is okay, but I prefer to use a flannel as I like the thickness and texture to a flannel more. All in all this was an excellent discovery from Soap and Glory, and I have just checked and it is currently on offer in Boots for £6.67, as they have a 1/3 off selected skincare offer on.
Have a lovely day!
