Do You Need The Emma Hardie Exfoliating Brightening Tonic In Your Life?

It's safe to say that the Emma Hardie Moringa Light Cleansing Gel that was released earlier this year is now one of my favourite cleansers. It's great if you have an oilier skin type which sometimes gets dry patches, like mine is doing right now because of the season change and it's a great alternative to the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm which unfortunately doesn't agree with my skin at all. So when they released the new Exfoliating Brightening Tonic* I was really intrigued and to be honest I'm a bit bored of the exfoliating tonic I currently use which is the Pixi Glow Tonic. Don't get me wrong, it's a great product but I'm not super keen on the scent (I think it smells like old ladies perfume lol) and I also think my skin has gotten a bit immune to it lately. 

The Emma Hardie Exfoliating Brightening Tonic RRP £28* claims to provide a natural, gentle exfoliation which smooths and evens out skin texture (which I definitely need!) as well as brightening and evening out your skin tone and increasing elasticity too. It basically sounds like a dream in a bottle really, doesn't it?

The pomegranate enzymes in the formula work to release any trapped bacteria that can lead to skin problems as well as enhancing cellular renewal which should lead to a smoother, even skin texture. Sytenol A is what helps to stimulate the collagen production and Tego Cosmo C250 brightens the skin as well as helping to improve the skin's clarity and tone. The Aloe Vera is the hydrating and soothing hero that makes the skin look and feel calmer and refreshed. It's also dermatologically tested, cruelty-free and free from parabens, silicone, synthetic colours, synthetic fragrance, petrolatum, mineral oil, sulphates and animal ingredients. It also smells just like the Moringa Light Cleansing Gel which I bloody love! 

The application directions on the box say to apply the product by spraying it onto a cotton pad but I just feel like I'm wasting the product because the spray is very light, so you need a fair few sprays to get the cotton pad wet with the product and I just find that the majority of it sinks into the cotton pad anyway. So instead I've been applying it by spraying it into my hands and then applying it to my face that way. I guess it's just personal preference but if I'm spending £28 on a product then I want to get all my money's worth at the end of the day. 

So do I like the product? Yes! I can definitely see and feel a difference when I use it, especially if I apply it at night before bed. I wake up the following morning and my skin looks a lot more awake than usual, even if I've had a rubbish nights sleep. My skin just looks radiant without looking too glowy and I think it helps with spots and also healing old scarring aswell. I'm not super keen on the fact that it comes in a spray bottle as I've already addressed but again, I think it's just personal preference and I've found a way around it that works for me. So I think I will pick it up again when I run out. I definitely prefer it over my Pixi Glow Tonic right now and I prefer the lovely Moringa scent over the weird old lady perfume any day.
