Emma Hardie "SHOCK" Disappointment!

Hi Lovelies!
Hope you are all having a fantastic Thursday! Woo it's getting that little bit closer to the weekend and I'm thrilled to have a weekend off ahead of me. Today's post is a little different for me, as I'm going to be talking about two products that have not impressed me at all! I guess it's always more fun to write about products you love, but its important to me that I use my beauty knowledge to help you in the best ways that I can. I really could not bare to see my followers wasting money on something that simply isn't worth it! but at the same time its only my opinion, so make sure you keep that in mind whilst reading today's review. Emma Hardie is a brand that I have come to love solely due to their amazing and I mean amazing cleansing balm. However, I was completely surprised that I did not fall in love with anything else that I purchased from my Luxury Hamper, which you can see here - I hope you enjoy today's post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section down below. If you need to get hold of me more directly, then you are more than welcome to use my social media to get hold of me, which is just to the right hand side of this post :)
I must admit it was a total surprise to me that I did not fall in love with these two sample size Emma Hardie day and night time moisturisers. I decided to purchase the Emma Hardie taster kit, as I wanted to sample a few more of per products before trying the larger sizes. Nothing comes close to my beloved HG Emma Hardie Cleansing balm, which is truly amazing. So I was really quite sad that these products just did nothing for me what so ever.. and that is why it's always better to try before you buy haha.
I'm not fussy when it comes to fragrance and I can handle quite a variety of different scents, but these two moisturisers smell really quite potent. It's weird as I can't quite describe the scent and I have been trying to find what ingredients might be causing me this problem. I noticed that some of the ingredients include Algae, Grapefruit, Bearberry and Liquorice which all have quite individual fragrances.. so maybe that's what it is. I don't want to seem like I'm completely bashing the product, as it does have some seriously amazing ingredients.. Plus both moisturisers did make my skin feel super soft. However, I just found that neither moisturiser did enough for me to warrant potentially paying over £30.00 for the full size of each. 

 I would not recommend these products as they were both just a little too thick and non-impressive for such a high price tag. I also didn't get along with the fragrance, but despite that I think both of these products would be far better suited to more dry skin types. Both moisturisers did make my skin feel extremely soft, but they were not suited to my normal/combo skin type. I was definitely hoping for more from these products, as the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm is truly one of my all time favourite beauty products. Please note that this is only my opinion and these products could totally work for you! it's always a good idea to try before you buy though, so why not check out this Emma Hardie Taster Kit if you would like to try out some products from the EH range

Emma Hardie Age Support Cream £42.00
Emma Hardie Rejuvenating Night Cream £39.00

Take Care


  1. i have never tried anything Emma hardie but wow those prices are expensive! sorry that you did not get along with them

    1. The the cleansing balm is amazing! but I just didn't think these products were worth it :( x

  2. What a shame! It's always disappointing when you branch out within a brand and don't fall in love with the new products :( Like you say, though, they might work better for other skin types!

    1. I know :( but glad it was just the sample sizes! - It would work so much better for more dry skin types x
