May Lindstrom Skin

Hey! This week has been short and sweet, following our mini fall break. But…I did make time to do some sampling.

I can always tell when cooler weather starts to affect my skin. Slight redness and drier skin appear, along with uneven texture.

Enter May Lindstrom The Clean Dirt. I’d heard good things about this product. Spirit Demerson, of Spirit Beauty Lounge, loves the stuff. So it has to be good, right? Well, it is. Cleanses and exfoliates, super gently, and makes your skin feel like it’s been rolled back a few years. Evens out bumps and imperfections, and gives the complexion a nice glow. I’m seriously using this twice weekly for, possibly, ever.

The Clean Dirt is a powder scrub. Just add water and apply to skin, cleansing gently. Made with Moroccan rhassoul clay to absorb impurities and anti-inflammatory turmeric.

I also tried the much heralded Blue Cocoon. Doesn’t the name just sound so mysterious? Like, I gotta get me some o’ that! That’s what I’d been thinking since I first heard about he product and finally did something about it. Blue Cocoon is a balm meant to fix anything cool/cold weather could do to your skin. The aforementioned redness and dry spots were the test subjects for this product. I dabbed on a bit of the balm (a-little-goes-a-long-way type product) and went to bed. It noticeably reduced the redness. The balm has a slight cooling feeling, which you’d think would be counterproductive for somewhat irritated skin, but is so healing and gentle and protective. Cocoon-like, you might say.

The Blue Cocoon is made with natural antihistamines and anti-inflammatories. The balmy texture makes it perfect for dry skin, but it is said to work on cystic acne too.

I know these two products are on the pricier side. If you’d like to try before you buy, and I would recommend it, don’t forget about the Spirit Beauty Lounge awesome sample program. Choose 6 product samples from the SBL store for $25. I use this option regularly to try new stuff. Love it!
