unnamedvvdf copy

Most of you know by now how truly in love I am with not only this brand, but the woman who created it. If you are lucky enough to get to meet May and her most beautiful family, then you will understand how this luxurious skin care company is a natural offshoot of her being and her natural lifestyle. She grew May Lindstrom Skin with tender loving care and attention to the smallest detail as if it were her baby as well.

Not only is each and every one of May’s original formulations decadent in appearance, but the ingredients inside each, is as pure as it effective. She is truly a unique creator who has innovated a line different than any I’ve ever tried.

The beautiful May Lindstrom. Would you just LOOK at her skin!?

May has graciously offered a full sized Blue Cocoon beauty balm concentrate for my readers! Just in time for the Holidays (although, trust me you won’t be giving this away!)

***

May’s Blue Cocoon reminds me a bit of her. It’s exquisite and delicate. You need the tiniest amount of this miracle blend for it’s effectiveness. This product really helped me with my sensitive skin. It contains calming ingredients that help irritation and inflammation. Perfect for adding to your regimen especially with the harsh winter elements wrecking havoc on our delicate skin. I even gave in and let my Mom share some of this delicious treat and it not only helped her rosacea but cured some spots of eczema!

It’s packed full of powerful skin food ingredients like Blue Tansy Oil, Frankincense Oil, Virgin Marula Oil, Immortelle Oil, Schisandra Spenanthera CO2 Fruit Extract and many other Organic, Wild Harvested and Fair Traded ingredients.

Let the experience of Blue Cocoon wrap it’s arms around you and give you a hug. The aromatherapy experience of the Blue Tansy will encourage all of your anxiety to just melt away!

“May Lindstrom Skin inspires you to take your self-care routine to a new zenith of delight and indulgence. As a catalyst for decadent skin-care rituals, we invite you to create the time and space for the personal connection you deserve.”

Beauty Balm Concentrate

Tranquil. Intoxicating. Deep Calm.

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.

The Result: A complexion that is quiet, and a mind that is clear.

The Ritual: Massage a pea sized amount into damp skin following cleansing.

 

THE GIVEAWAY:

WHAT YOU WILL WIN:
A full size jar (1.69 oz / 50 ml) of The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm. (Valued at $160.00)
HOW TO WIN:
Please share your experiences with May’s products or what about this product entices you. I’d also love it if you could share your own skincare rituals. Is there anything you’d like to see May add to her line of products? I will pick the winner at random on 12/22/13 (just in time for the holiday’s!) and announce it back on this post!

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! xoxo

CV Skinlabs: Review, Before & After Photos + Giveaway *CLOSED*

IMG_9193

I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Britta Aragon, founder + creator of CV Skinlabs during the Night For Green Beauty Event in NYC. She gave me some products and samples to try out and I fell in love with everything so much that I purchased a full size of the Calming Moisture Cream (which I have been using every single day on my face & neck). I also use the Restorative Balm, Rescue + Relief Spray and the Body Repair Lotion literally every single day since receiving.

Behind The Brand:

Britta discovered her passion for promoting safe self-care through her experience as a caregiver during her father’s eight-year battle with cancer. A survivor of Hodgkin’s disease herself, she understands firsthand the devastating effects cancer and cancer treatments can have on the skin. When she tried products specifically targeted for “sensitive skin,” they were often laden with potentially harmful chemicals that actually irritated her father’s fragile skin. She became acutely aware of how devastating the side effects from drugs and medical treatments could be. Inspired and determined to help others, she founded Cinco Vidas in 2008, and dedicated her work to her father’s legacy.

My Experience:

I may be a “beauty blogger” but I am human and I do experience reactions and skin problems! I am sharing these photos because it’s important to know that there are natural products out there to help with skin issues!

I recently had a horrible product reaction (the only downside to testing many products!) which resulted in a severe case of contact dermatitis on my face. I ended up at the doctors office because the pain was so bad I literally couldn’t handle the burning and itching. The doctor prescribed both oral and topical steroids for the dermatitis. I opted to not do either and instead I have been using only the Restorative Balm and Calming Moisture Cream on my face and within just two days the dermatitis went from severe to moderate and now another day later it is barely visible. Don’t believe me? The proof is in the pudding…

(the first photo is yellow because it was taken inside and the other two were outside. There is no editing on any of these!)

Contact Dermatitis Before and After Photos Using CV Skinlabs:

  • Day 1: I woke up with my face entirely swollen, my eyes could barely open and both of my cheeks, especially the left side was red and blistered.
  • Day 2: After using the Calming Moisture Cream and the Rescue + Relief Spray the redness on the cheeks started to dissipate, the redness went down and the itching subsided immensely. My eyelids also felt and started to look much less swollen.
  • Day 3: I added the Restorative Balm on top of the Calming Moisture for the night and woke up with my skin looking drastically better, no more swollen eyes and there is even a glow to my cheeks!

My skin is still not 100% and I don’t expect it to be for awhile because this dermatitis was incredibly severe and has made my skin extra sensitive. I have had a hard time wearing makeup or using anything other than CV Skinlabs on my face. I am so thankful to have these products in my life at a time like this when my skin literally needs the ingredients.

I can honestly say that I have found my holy grail skincare brand for my sensitive skin. I recommend all four products in this line and literally can’t be without any of them.

***

In honor of my serious love affair with CV Skinlabs I am doing a giveaway with the very first product I fell in love with from this line: The Restorative Balm.This little baby helps to keep my lips kissable, my cuticles strong, my hands soft and best of all it keeps any eyelid eczema I am prone to completely at bay!

If you suffer from eczema, dermatitis, dry or sensitive skin: YOU NEED TO TRY THIS
