Here at Echo we are all about making time for self care. We believe that a little pampering (especially skincare-related pampering) is always a good idea. As estheticians, make up artists, and self proclaimed green beauty enthusiasts, we have found that simply taking the time to relax and take care of one’s self is one of the greatest weekly ‘pick me ups' there is.
One of our favorite brands to incorporate into our facials here at Echo and our personal skincare rituals is May Lindstrom.
May Lindstrom Skin is the epitome of indulgent, handcrafted, and natural skin care.
The maker and creator of the brand, May, says on the brands website,
Beautifully said in our opinion.
One of our favorite oil based cleansers is the Pendulum Potion by May Lindstrom. The Pendulum Potion effortlessly cleanses the skin of make up and dirt, decongests pores, and leaves the skin feeling soft and clean.
While in use, the Pendulum Potion creates a woodsy aroma with hints of spice. May herself says,
To experience the Pendulum Potion and all of its luxury, warm the product up in the hands, allow yourself to breathe in the beautiful aroma created, and gently massage onto dry skin. After the beautiful oils are smoothed across the whole face and neck, wet hands and continue to massage the skin with the potion. Lastly, place a soft and steamy, warm face cloth on to the face to gently wipe away any residue.
To follow up a relaxing oil cleanse, we reccomend doing a little masking. May Lindstrom's stunning Honey Mud is the bees knees. It is a lovely cocktail of raw honey, silver, delightful and uplifting plant oils, and white halloysite clay.
As a mask, the Honey Mud is best applied to clean and dry skin. The Honey Mud should be left to treat and nourish the skin for anywhere form ten minutes to one hour.
The beautiful blend of white clay, honey, and aromatic oils can also be used as a cleanser when massaged into wet skin.
The Honey Mud, whether used as a daily cleanser or as a pampering mask, was made to feed and nourish the skin and to bring balance and ease to stressed out skin.
A true pampering skincare session is not complete without a nourishing moisturizer. May Lindstrom's Youth Dew is the perfect last step after cleansing with the Pendulum Potion and masking with the Honey Mud.
The Youth Dew is packed with antioxidants and is May's first choice for treating sensitive skin, mature skin, and acne prone skin. It was made to pentrate dry skin and to balance the skin's sebum production.
So which gorgeous May Lindstrom product are you most excited about treating your skin to?
I've personally been obsessed with cleansing with the Pendulum Potion.
Aside from loving using May's products in our own skincare rituals, we have been so happy with the response that we have gotten from our clients and customers who have experienced May Lindstrom products through us; whether it be through our indulgent May Lindstrom facial or through purchasing May's products at Echo.
We are also the only retailer in Oregon who has the pleasure of sharing May Lindstrom's delightful skincare products with our region's green beauty community.
Stop in anytime at Echo Natural Beauty for a facial with exclusively May Lindstrom products, to pick up your Honey Mud, Youth Dew, or Pendulum Potion, or to learn more about May's other beautiful products.
