On a recent trip to London, I was lucky enough to get an appointment with facialist to the stars Emma Hardie. I had met Emma in Dublin when she was here to launch her range in Arnotts. When I met her here I fell in love with her, her attiude to skincare is amazing, but more than that she has the most wonderful personality. So I was in London for a few meetings and I got a call from Emma’s PR saying that Emma had got a cancelation for a facial in the AMAZING salon Michael John of Mayfair, possibly one of the nicest salons I have ever been to. Emma gave me one of the best facials that I have ever had, a lot has to do with her incredible range of products but she also practices healing while doing your facial. I was quite skeptical about this when she explained what she was doing, but my skin felt and looked great for weeks after the facial so she converted me! I will definatly be going back for a facial the next time I am in London, hopefully that will happen in the next few weeks.
Emma’s product range is incredible. At the core of the range is Moringa Cleansing Balm, this is the perfect cleansing balm which smells amazing. Made from Moringa seed extract, Wild Sea Fennel, and Vitamin E it provides you with a natural way to thoroughly cleanse your skin. The Amazing Face Hydrating Lighter lotion is one of the best moisturisers around. With healing properties of Melissa extract which restore, stabilise, nurture and protect the skin. A powerful blend of Selenium, manganese, zinc and herbal extracts, act as a natural defence system and helps to protect the skin against environmental aggressions, creating a natural antiaging defence system. The stimulating extracts from the Maca root help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin radiance and luminosity. Inca Inchi oil from Peru is extremely rich is in Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, ideal for sensitive, damaged, dry skin and has skin regenerative properties. Rose Geranium, Peppermint and Pettigrain essential oils revitalise the skin whilst the delicate, natural aroma of Lavender oil relaxes and calms. Her hand cream is to die for, it soaks in almost instantly and does not leave your hands feeling oily and smells amazing.
