Feel Good Naked with Emma Hardie!


I’m a huge fan of Emma Hardie and her brand Amazing Face, and why she hasn’t called her two new body focused products Amazing Body I have no idea. However, naming issues asides, I’m a little bit excited over these two wondrous pots of lovely-ness. 


Moving her face line down below the jaw line, and with thoughts of sunshine and a bikini bared body for summer, her Natural Lift and Sculpt Body Treatment and Body Butter will shape up bumpy and dry goose pimpled flesh in a jiffy. Emma’s known for her highly concentrated, aromatic and enriched botanical ingredients and these body beauties don’t disappoint.


The Body Treatment is a luxurious mud-based scrub that throws together fine rose and china clays with detoxifying Himalayan salt, exfoliating granules of organic red corn, along with moisturising sweet almond oil leaves. The whole alchemy is body-blowing. I can only describe it as the best in-house spa treatment you'll experience in your own bathroom. As you can see from the texture, it means business, but the skin suffers no cheap scratchiness and is left feeling super smooth along with a healthy radiant glow. Emma reveals it’s also the perfect back treatment mask to help purify and detox congested and blemished skin.


Post scrub, the Body Butter has the look and texture of Greek yoghurt. Skin literally wallows in the luxuriousness of this nourishing and hydrating moisturiser with shea butter and exotic Inca Inchi oils from Peru. Let me tell you, this Body Butter demands to be massaged in – no quick slap and tickle application here. As thick as it looks, it absorbs surprisingly quickly, but leaves the skin not feeling veiled, but opaqued in moisture. You can literally feel the skin’s elasticity pinging back! Emma explains that using feel-good aromatic products encourages the self-practice of massage which helps to promote the remove of excess toxins for a toned appearance.

 Some might say these two body products are quite costly when you can pick up a generic scrub and moisturiser for under a fiver each, but quality pays in terms of application – pots are generously sized and the top drawer ingredients ensures you don’t need handfuls for instant body benefits. Love, love, love!
