Please can any of you lovely beauty experts recommend something similar to Emma Hardie, but much less expensive? I'm hoping there is a fabulous product out there with amazing ingredients, but at a more attractive price point!

Have you tried The Body Shop Chamomile balm? Or Sweet Orange Cleansing balm by Akamuti is good too.

Oo, no I haven't! Thank you, i'll go and take a look.

Sanctuary do one: it's called the warming cleansing butter balm I think!

Second The Body Shop Camomile one, it's what I switched to after deciding Emma Hardy - while lovely - was just too expensive. Wait till they have another 30% or 40% off offer though, should be one in the next 2 or 3 weeks.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm is a firm favourite for me - not the cheapest but definitely very very good.

Thank you ladies! xx

not all balm products but the cleansers I currently have on the go alongside a big old tub of Emma Hardie are superfacialist cleansing oil, lush ultrabland and soap & glory ultimelt. I just go for whichever I fancy that day and use the emma hardie washcloths for all of them x

No7 beautiful skin cleansing oil is brilliant at removing make up and feels/smells lovely.

I like the Clinique one and the Body Shop one equally. Both very good products.

Not helpful, but having tried several other balms, I keep coming back to the EH one - I can't find a cheap one that rinses away as cleanly, and with greasy skin I need one that leaves absolutely no trace. I use EH as a second cleanse and just use a small amount for maximum longevity!

Balm Balm frankincense balm is lovely. I alternate between that and plain jojoba oil.

I love the Elemis Pro Collagen cleansing balm; but it's not exactly a cheaper alternative.
I've heard good things about Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm.

The Body Shop camomile balm contains mineral oils, and irritated my skin.
I buy the Emma Hardie whenever M&S have their 20% off days, as the price is much more palletable then.

I have the Bodyshop Camomile Butter ( love it) . It takes off everything.

Also some Lush Ultrabland (DD 'gifted' it to me, she didn't like it) It's thicker, more textured. I use it if I have no eye make-up on, I don't fancy the bits in my eyes.

Boots Botanics Balm, great stuff!

evelynj Sun 10-Jul-16 23:30:28

I don't like the botanics one-super greasy to me, also don't like the body shop camomile one but I love the una Brennan vit c cleansing oil. On Mother's Day bought a huge tub of EH half price with a free 50ml offer. The superdrug radiance cream is ok

I alternate with EH at night and Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish in the morning....cleanse and polish is gentle, takes off all make up (including eyes) and is moisturising - so good stuff.

orangebird69 Mon 11-Jul-16 06:17:50

Superdrug Naturally Radiant hcc is fan and heap as chips. I'll also recommend TBD camomile butter and Clinique TTDO balm. But EH is my fave ever. Smells so amazing.

orangebird69 Mon 11-Jul-16 06:18:27

Fab and cheap. FFS. I wish there were an edit function.

kittymewslie Mon 11-Jul-16 07:26:24

Thank you for your suggestions; you guys are brilliant! I'm already using the Superdrug one as a first cleanse (replacement for Liz Earle, which I've used for years) so agree it is very good! It's no Emma Hardie though. I'll have a look at the other suggestions though! I don't expect M&S will have a 20% off day for a while... sad xx

Re: PP. The Body Shop Camomile Butter does not and never has contained any mineral oil derivative, in case that's putting anyone off.

I like it much better than Emma Hardie, which doesn't really remove my (non-waterproof) mascara properly without stinging my eyes or making them blurry. I have to really, really work it in. For that price I want it to do the lot and leave me all soft, which it doesn't.

Cliniques TTDO balm is my favourite even over Emma Hardie

Toxicity Mon 11-Jul-16 14:37:39

Clarins do a lovely cleanser called Pure Melt cleansing gel - I think it is as good as the EH balm and is cheaper! It works wonders for my combination skin.

PlumDogMillionaire Mon 11-Jul-16 15:51:11

Emma Hardie is gorgeous but not the be-all and end-all! With all of the attention it gets it just makes it a very lusty product especially in that gold jar! I enjoy the superfacialist vitamin c cleansing oil and soap and glory ultimelt just as much and i think the aforementioned does do more for brightening my complexion! Sometimes I'm just really in the mood for the balm texture and scent of emma hardie and it's lovely to put on for a bath.

What I am trying to say is you could buy it and make it last AGES by having it as a treat and using equally gorgeous products alongside it. I love using different products all the time makes me actually appreciate them all more!
