She is one of the kindest, most compassionate, inspiring, beautiful and talented women I have had the pleasure of knowing. I was honored to feature May and her luxurious skincare line here on my blog. I have been using her products for the past month and am so excited to share my thoughts with everyone!

The Collection:

*THE YOUTH DEW – hydrating facial serum.

opulent. precious. fresh.

What It Is: This joyously over-the-top hydrating potion transforms skin with a power-packed bouquet of 20 ambitiously regenerating and indulgent plant and botanical oils infused with time-stopping CoEnzyme Q10.

The Result: A Petal Soft Complexion that Glows with Ageless Grace.

The Ritual: Apply a few potent drops to moist skin morning and night for the only hydration your skin requires.

Ingredients: *Persea Americana (Avocado) Oil, *Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam Seed) Oil, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Prunus Spp (Plum Kernel) Oil, *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Oil, *Rosa Rubiginosa (Rosehip Seed) Oil, *Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Oil, *Calophyllum Inophyllum (Tamanu) Oil, *Borago Officinalis (Borage Seed) Oil, Aleurites Moluccans (Kukui Nut) Oil, *Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, *Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium Rose) Essential Oil, *Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Essential Oil, *Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange) Essential Oil, *Citrus Limon (Lemon) Essential Oil, *Rosa Damascena (Rose Absolute) Essential Oil, *Rosa Damascena (Bulgarian Rose) Essential Oil, *Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) Essential Oil, ***Daucus Carota (Carrot Seed) Essential Oil, Ubiquinone (CoEnzyme Q10). *Certified Organic ***Wild Harvested

Price: $110.00

My Thoughts: The scent of this serum is simply heavenly. It has subtle hints of rose and citrus. This serum not only moisturizes my skin but leaves it glowing. It literally just sinks right into the skin. I love to apply this after using the scrub and the masque at night. It is also light enough to wear during the day and underneath makeup. There are so many amazing plant oils in this serum that your skin will literally eat it right up. This can also be used as an eye treatment or used on the lips.

*THE PROBLEM SOLVER – correcting masque.

hero. over-achiever. superstar.

What It Is: A jet-black fusion of antioxidant-rich raw cacao, healing bamboo charcoal, soil nutrients, salts, and exotic warming spices go deep on a mission to reveal your most radiant self. This intense treatment masque effectively purifies & tightens pores, extinguishes inflammations, fights & heals blemishes, jump-starts circulation in the epidermis & detoxifies skin with delightful ease and power. The radically different powder-to-mousse formula activates on contact with water – only releasing its magic at the exact moment of use so you experience full potency every time.

The Result: Clear and Luminous Skin that will Have People Asking for Your Secret.

The Ritual: Activate a tablespoon of powder formula with equal parts water in a bowl, blending to form a soft mousse. Massage over skin and relax. Treatment time is 45 minutes (or until fully dry). Expect a slightly hot and tingling sensation. Rinse, and follow with The Youth Dew.

Ingredients: Fuller’s Earth Clay, Red Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, **Theobroma Cacao (Raw Cacao), Red Alaea Sea Salt, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Sodium Bicarbonate, Bamboo Carbon Charcoal Powder, *Vanilla Planifolia Bean, *Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower, *Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root, ***Boswellia Carteri (Frankincense), *Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola), *Archangelica (Angelica) Root, *Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon), *Myristica Fragans (Nutmeg), *Syzygium Aromaticum (Clove), *Curcuma Longa (Turmeric), *Capsicum Annuum (Cayenne) Pepper. *Certified Organic **Fair Trade Certified ***Wild Harvested

Price: $90.00

My Thoughts: This masque is no joke! It is an intense treatment and will leave your skin feeling like you just had a facial done at a spa. The spices in this can be a bit intense at first but then it subsides and you are left with a beautiful scent of clove and a tingling feeling on your skin that is actually very pleasant! The consistency of this masque is very creamy and looks just like dark chocolate! It smells like clove and goes on beautifully. I like to use a foundation brush to spread this evenly all over my face and neck. I leave it on for 30 minutes (or until dry). After rinsing this masque off I feel like my skin has been renewed. I highly recommend this to anyone who has even the most sensitive skin as the spices in this are very soothing. I have been using this once a week and could not be happier with the results.

*THE CLEAN DIRT – cleansing clay.

daily micro-dermabrasion. power button. magic dust.

What It Is: An energizing blend of cleansing clays, warming spices and healing salts lifts impurities while a surge of H20-activated Vitamin C encourages cellular rejuvenation and increased blood flow. This stimulating treatment transforms and refines skin’s appearance with a potent cocktail of exfoliants, leaving you velvety smooth and gorgeously radiant.

The Result: A Remarkably Fresh Complexion that will Have You Cooing Like a Newborn.

The Ritual: Pour a teaspoon of powder formula into palm, slowly add drops of water to activate, and blend to a soft mousse consistency. Massage into skin, avoiding eye area. Expect a slightly hot and tingling sensation. Rinse, and follow with The Youth Dew.

Ingredients: White Halloysite Clay, Red Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, Red Alaea Sea Salt, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Sodium Bicarbonate, *Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root, *Rosa Centifolia (Pink Rose), *Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower, *Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon), * Myristica Fragans (Nutmeg), *Syzygium Aromaticum (Clove), *Curcuma Longa (Turmeric), *Zingiber Officinale (Ginger), *Vanilla Planifolia Bean, **Theobroma Cacao (Raw Cacao). *Certified Organic **Fair Trade Certified

Price: $60.00

My Thoughts: This might be my favorite product of the entire line. I really love how it removes every ounce of makeup on my face and leaves my skin feeling so clean. I always have a beautiful glow after immediately rinsing this off. I like to leave this scrub on my face for 5-10 minutes even though it’s not a face mask I find that it works even better when I let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse with warm water. This clears up my skin like no other. If I am having any break out or irritation on my face I will use this and the next day my skin is clear and radiant again! I have to be honest – I have not wanted to use any other facial scrub since receiving this. It gets the job done! This smells of clove and cinnamon and is so yummy I am tempted to lick it off of my face!

*THE GOOD STUFF – radiance oil.

remarkably sexy. gently whimsical. liquid sunshine.

What It Is: This total body elixir will recharge your relationship with your skin. A rich and decadent marriage of cocoa, rose, lavender, and ylang-ylang tantalizes your senses while enveloping your every inch in luxurious hydration. Pairing exquisite nourishment from a succulent blend of plant oils with an infusion of translucent golden minerals to release skin from years of dullness and reset your natural vitality for an unprecedented dewy glow.

The Result: Enviably Privileged Skin that Whispers its Sensuality and Begs to be Touched.

The Ritual: Smooth over damp skin directly after bathing or showering. Indulge from the tips of your toes to the line of your collarbone. Massage the rich fluid into thirsty areas on your knees and hips, derriere and back, the length of your arms and the curve of your breasts. Finish with a drop or two smoothed over hair to enrich your lush locks.

Ingredients: *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, *Macadamia Integrifolia (Macadamia Nut) Oil, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Prunus Spp (Plum Kernel) Oil, *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Absolute) Oil, *Cananga Odorata (Ylang-Ylang) Essential Oil, *Rosa Damascena (Rose Absolute) Essential Oil, *Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Essential Oil, Mica. * Certified Organic

Price: $110.00

My Thoughts: As May put it so beautifully “it looks like a kaleidoscope of gold”  and applying this makes me feel so luxurious. I put it in my bath water and also apply it after I shower. This oil smells like chocolate, rose and ylang-ylang and I am tempted to eat it every time I put it on my body. As you can see from the picture above, there are little flecks of glitter in this oil but when you smooth it into your skin it does not leave an overpowering glittery look at all. It gives you a really natural and beautiful shimmer to your skin. A very tiny amount of this goes a very long way!

  1. I also made a review on this awhile ago! I am absolutely loving it! You can really tell that the herbs and spices are working in your skin, you can feel it. My favourites are The Problem Solver and The Clean Dirt and those are the only two I have but they beat any cleansers or masks out there. Clean Dirt gets the job done as both exfoliator and cleanser and Problem Solver gets deep into the roots cleaning up impurities, gotta love that! (My skin has become so much clearer)

    I never need a ‘shimmery’ body oil but when I saw what you have written about it smelling like CHOCOLATE, rose and ylang ylang it’s hard to pass! I have been using coconut oil mainly because body oils out there tend to either smell too floral or earthy. I might as well try May’s out.

    Amazing review! Hope her products line expands because the products make a difference in my skin :D

    • I will have to check out your review! I love everything so much. The problem solver and the clean dirty are my favorites as well as I cannot imagine being without them now. They have become staples in my skincare routine and have made such a difference in my skin in such a short period of time. I have never come across any products quite like May’s. Her formulations are so unique and wonderful.

      I would recommend the radiance oil even to people who are not into shimmery oils as it really does turn into a beautiful shimmer on your skin that is not terribly noticeable and I am not one for glitter on my body and I LOVE it.

      If you try the serum or the oil please let me know what you think! I am going to check out your review now! Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

      xoxo

      • Yes, love love your review on the line, all your reviews are really good actually I love how your descriptions are short and clear and your pictures are really good as well.

        How many times do you use the Clean Dirt? Just wondering!

  2. I would love to try this range!! I checkec their website just the other day and I understand they are not available in Europe for the moment….

    I am sooo curious about the radiance oil….the scent of chocolate, rose and ylang ylang!!

    Thanks for this thorough review!

    • I saw that May sent you a tweet that she is now shipping to Europe! that’s AMAZING. Please let me know if you try out anything from her!! The scent of the radiance oil is unlike anything I have ever smelled… it’s so delicious!!! I wish I could eat it! haha

      Thank you so much for your comment!!!

    • I’ve always been told that pnvtereion is better than a cure. I eat well, I’ve stopped smoking, I drink lots of water and wear sunscreen on my face in summer (before anyone asks!) My mum has pretty good skin for her age but I was thinking about replacing my moisturiser with a clinique night moisturiser that incedently has anti aging and firming effects. I used it last night and today my skin feels amazing.Is it better to start early to prevent wrinkles?? I really want to start using this cream, but i’m worried about the long term effects. I read in the paper once that using them too young can bring on wrinkles instead of prevent them because it stops you producing natural anti oxidents (i think thats right i’m no scientist!) so you become dependent .I’m 23by drinking lots of water’, I don’t mean water poisioning! that is something all together different!

  3. I have a suggestion for your site which may turn out to be a long project. In many of your reviews of products, you have stated that certain ingredients are harmful while others are beneficial. Perhaps you could state WHY each are like that: the harm or benefit for certain ingredients that repeatedly show up. For instance, ingredient A is bad because it does THIS to your body. Alternatively, ingredient B is good because it does THIS to your body. Perhaps if someone has symptoms or reactions to a product, they will know what to look for to reject that and other products, or if someone enjoys an effect from a product, they might research similar products that will repeat the effect.

  4. Ahh. This sounds amazing. You give such great reviews!! Now I don’t know whether to buy May Lindstrom’s line or Tata Harper. Have you ever tried Tata Harper skincare? I’ve heard such great things about it.

    • Thank you!!!!! That’s so sweet and I have not tried Tata Harper but it is one of “must try” brands for sure! I have heard many great things about her line! Personally I’d have to recommend May’s products because I have tried them and love them and also I think her formulations are one of the most unique out there, not to mention everything she makes is just so luxurious!!

  5. Susan Lecoste says:

    Wow, another great review! I have been contemplating getting May’s products for awhile now and this review has made me even more eager. Thank you!

  6. I hope Eco Diva Beauty gets to carry May Lindstrom! Us Canadians need this luxurious line! I can’t wait to get my hands on some. Britanie, you are even gorgeous with a mud masque all over your face!
