Going away this weekend? This is the best travel set I've been sent, and it's so perfect for a weekend away!
I might have mentioned it before, but I am a massive fan of Emma Hardie skincare - and in particular, the moringa cleanser. I recommend it to a lot of people, and I credit it for keeping my dry skin in order.

SO when I met the PR last week and she pulled out this mini travel kit, I was so happy I think I actually clapped my hands. With bank holidays coming up, it's actually a good time to invest in some mini's, because who has the room in their bags to carry huge clunky bottles?

The mini moringa cleanser..
I'm trying to describe just why I put this cleanser so far above others - and it's not just me, I brought it home one time and told my mum to give it a try, and now it's her favourite as well. It's an oil-based cleanser that comes in a solid balm form - but when it touches your skin, it melts a little to form a light oily texture.
The oils in it are sweet almond, grape seed, orange, neroli and mandarin. And none of these irritate my skin, they just make it look so glowy and fresh. You can either remove it with water or your hands, or you can use the cloth that comes in the travel bag. The cloth makes sure all the dirt is off your face, so I use that at night. Sometimes I even put a thin sweep of this on my skin and leave it on for 15 minutes as a face mask. It's so, so good.

The body lotion..
I hadn't tried this before I got it in the travel kit, but it has the same scent as the rest of the range - a sort of fresh orange. I really like it - it's not too thick so it spreads easily. It also stays, which I love, because sometimes I put a body lotion on and it sinks in quickly, but then my arms feel dry and tight again in an hour. This really does last, so I think I'm going to buy the full sized version.

The exfoliating rosehip seeds..
I hadn't seen these before, and when I first looked at them I was a bit like: 'Do these?' Apparently not. They look like little sprinkles but they are in fact rosehip seeds, and you're meant to add them to your moringa cleanser twice a week, and it turns it into a scrub.
I love this idea! I don't always get on with scrubs because their beads are usually too scratchy, but these seeds aren't - which makes them really good for sensitive skin.
I need to check if they do these in full sized tubs actually, because I think it's such a good idea to mix your own scrub.

The age support cream..
There is nothing wrong with this cream, I just don't use it. Mainly because I'm sworn to a different moisturiser at the moment. It's quite thick, but is quick to sink in - and again, smells lovely.
My only problem with it is that my skin isn't the right target age for it. There's nothing wrong with using an anti-ageing face routine in your early twenties, but I think more mature skin would see the benefit of this cream more than I do.
My mum, for example, loves it, and she's in her 50's. Since it is quite thick, I'd recommend using it at night, and if you have dry skin and are in your 30's, then give it a go. It really is lovely, and believe me, I will be using this in a few year's time!

So there you have it, a really gorgeous travel kit that I can't rave about enough. If you want to pick one up, it's called Travel Companions, and it's out now and costs £35 here. Which is SUCH good value, considering one full-sized pot of the cleanser is basically that price. It's also good if you just want to get a feel of the brand before investing in the larger sizes.

Have you tried anything from Emma Hardie before? What do you think?x
