I love Emma Hardie skincare and I was lucky enough to get a facial from the lady herself a couple of years ago. It’s a brand I can really trust, and I know all her products are full of beneficial ingredients. The latest mask launch from the brand is the Emma Hardie Purifying Pink Clay Detox Mask, and my review of it is this week’s Face Mask Friday post.
The Emma Hardie Purifying Pink Clay Detox Mask* (£40 from Emma Hardie) is a thick clay mask that’s designed to cleanse and purify the skin, as well as exfoliate and brighten. It’s a gentle mask that also soothes the skin and combats redness. You get a large tub of the mask, that will last a long time, as well as a cloth to remove the mask.
It contains Superfine Australian Pink Clay to draw impurities out of the skin, whilst also boosting the skin’s natural moisture levels. It’s great for even the most sensitive of skin, and helps to refine tone and texture too. This mask also contains a mix of natural AHAs (Alpha-Hydroxy Acids), which chemically exfoliate and brighten the skin. Emma Hardie are calling this complex of AHAs their Multifruit™ ingredient – it’s a mix of bilberry, sugar cane (Glycolic), sugar maple and orange and lemon (Ascorbic) acids. It will brighten the skin, help to even out discolourations and dissolve dead skin cells.
Another interesting ingredient in the mask, comes from lentils. P-Refinyl minimises the appearance of large, open pores and it reduces sebum (oil) production; which is great for those with oily and congested skin. P-Refinyl will tighten pores to improve the texture of the skin, and it also helps to reinforce collagen structure; keeping the skin firm and with good elasticity. The Emma Hardie Purifying Pink Clay Detox Mask also contains the skin-conditioning agent DEFENSIL©, which reduces skin redness by soothing and calming the skin.
Last, but not least, Emma Hardie’s hero ingredient Moringa Seed Oil is also included. This is rich in vitamins C and E. It’s an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and it contains antioxidants to provide environmental protection. It makes your skin feel really nice and comfortable too.
To use this mask, you apply a thin layer, avoiding the eye area, and leave to work its magic for 10-15 minutes. Then dampen the face cloth with warm water and gently remove. It’s recommended that you use this mask once per week to get purifyed, balanced, hydrated and radiant skin. I really love this mask, and it smells amazing – a very relaxing, botanical, spa-like scent. I would recommend it for all skin types, which is a great find in a mask.
If you prefer to do your shopping in person and not online, Emma Hardie is stocked in M&S beauty halls nationwide. Keep an eye on your local store’s Christmas opening times, so that you can give the gift of great skin this festive season.
