"These are my delectable treats, made for me, by me and shared with you. This is my journey exposed, my dreams launched..." -May Lindstrom
May Lindstrom is luxury and I love it. It all begins with a matte black box embossed with a gold logo. Unwrapped; a dark violet Miron glass jar. A twist of the lid reveals more than a cream, lotion or powder, but a sensory experience to be indulged and enjoyed.
Two new products have joined the May Lindstrom lineup: The Blue Cocoon and The Honey Mud.
The Blue Cocoon, a beauty balm concentrate, is a deep and intense formula for skin in need of hydration and a heavy dose of moisture. A blend of oils unlike any other balm, featuring Camellia Seed oil, Virgin Marula oil as well as myrrh and frankincense, it is calming from both an aromatic scent-sory perspective and a skin-soothing one. Blue tansy, vivid blue in colour, is a natural anti-inflammatory, healing for the skin, and upon opening the jar is immediately soothing and relaxing. I adore using this product, in the ML essence, it does feel like a ritual, more a vehicle for self care than simply a skin care routine.
The honey mud, a gentle cleansing silk, is raw wildflower honey with the addition of White Halloysite Clay among a host of other luxe oils and essentials. Slightly sticky, hearty and heavy, it's a cleanser with a mission: to reduce redness, calm skin and restore nourishment. A pleasure to use, and a pleasure to see and feel the results of.
Thankfully, May Lindstrom launched her dreams, so we can sail away with her...
