As I have previously noted, May Lindstrom, the eponymously named line of its creator, is a healthy skincare collection that uses sustainably sourced certified organic, wild harvested, biodynamic and vegan ingredients of the highest quality. May, a former model known as the "skin chef," lovingly makes each batch by hand, and is among the short list visionaries to create ultra luxurious natural skincare products. More of a magician, or alchemist, May has an innate understanding of the raw materials and is able to commingle disparate elements to create harmonious blends that ignite the senses and nourish the skin.
May Lindstrom is a line that inspires a profound engagement with the ritual associated with the finest quality skincare products that boast otherworldly textures, heavenly aromas, and astonishing results. Stress melts away as one yields oneself to the undeniable experiential aspect of this magical line, and one cannot help but savor every moment of this glorious process.
If you have long sought a magical unicorn of a beauty product, and one that could end the hunt for a holy grail beauty balm, then say hello to May Lindstrom The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate. Aptly named, one immediately wants to be completely enveloped by this wondrous melting balm. While this balm evokes the color of the Adriatic Sea, this glistening gem melts into an irresistible oil serum upon being greeted by the warmth of the skin.
This delectable anti-inflammatory multipurpose balm deeply nourished and hydrates the skin, eradicates redness and skin irritations and makes skin soft, supple, balanced, healed and luminous.
I cannot sufficiently underscore the extent to which this is a truly special skincare treat. This magical balm is unlike anything else that I have tried, and not only does it nourish and treat the skin, but it also creates the most heavenly sensory experience. I begin by slowly and deeply inhaling its aroma directly from the jar, and then I remove a tiny amount from the jar and warm it between my fingers before massaging it into my freshly cleansed and damp face, neck and décolleté. The botanical aroma is a warm and earthy amalgam of its ingredients from which slight traces of Vanilla Planifolia and Lavender emerge. The scent essentially defies a lucid description because it has an otherworldly aroma, and is unlike anything else that I have experienced.
Once this balm, which boasts the efficacy of the finest serums and beauty oils, sinks into the skin one immediately notices that their skin becomes ultra-hydrated, soft, supple and nourished. Furthermore, this ultra-luxe balm immediately calms sensitive skin that is reactive and easily irritated. It soothes and treats inflammation of all sorts, and is a wonderful choice for rosacea, eczema and acne-prone skin. The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate is also a great post-treatment, post-peel and post exfoliation product choice since its potent anti-inflammatory ingredients boast an efficacy that is seldom found in a single product.
This potent, antioxidant-rich balm is also the perfect choice if you seek ultra-effective anti-aging skincare products that are healthy and effective. It should also be mentioned that this multipurpose healing and nourishing balm can be used to spot treat irritated skin, and that it works extraordinarily well as an eye cream and lip balm. Additionally, if you have dry skin, or dry patches you will be astonished by the speed with which these conditions will be reversed.
According to May Lindstrom,
Our balmy blue enchantress greets your skin with cool serenity, melting on touch to a fluid potion that tenderly envelopes you in the most decadent azule calm.
Mystical blue tansy eases feelings of emotional anxiety while releasing heat and providing nourishment and relief to delicate, inflamed and irritable skin conditions.
Massage a pea sized amount into wet immediately following cleansing. Boss: Work beautifully as an eye and lip treatment.
The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate activates the senses, elevates the mood and transforms the skin. It is, indeed, a magical unicorn that is filled with healthy, potent actives that together perform miracles for the skin and psyche.

I have a small sample of this. Upon reading this post I decided to try it on my skin. It feels wonderful and did reduce skin redness. But I am confused as to whether it's a moisturizer or if I should put a moisturizer over it. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Isn't it wonderful?! I am completely obsessed with this beautiful gem of a product. It definitely is a very potent anti-inflammatory multipurpose balm, and most certainly reduces redness very efficiently! You can use it as a moisturizer, or as more of an oil-based serum. There are days that my skin doesn't require any additional cream or lotion, but then there are others when I want more. Give it a try as a moisturizer to see whether you feel compelled to use an added lotion or moisturizer. I definitely would recommend applying it to warm, damp skin because it absorbs more quickly, and you can use less product. If you need/want an added face cream, then just apply it afterward. I can't wait to hear your thoughts once you have used it a little bit longer. :-)Delete

Thank you for your very kind words, Marcia! I am thrilled that I was able to make it come alive, it really is such an extraordinary product!
