If you seen any of my recent Instagram posts you’ll know that I have fallen in love with everything May! Her line is the epitome of green luxury. I have been lucky enough to try the whole collection. Her line is on the high end, for me it is SO worth it. Especially considering my skin absorbs so much of what I put on it, twice a day, I think it is important to invest into quality. That may mean starting with one product and building your collection over time. I will review each product individually so you have a better idea of my experience with each. Before I do that here is a little more on the quality of this line…
THE HONEY MUD
This was the first product I tried from her line, and it was the first time dipping my toes into the green mask world. I’ve never been one to use facial masks. This was a game changer for me in so many ways! It is made from an exquisite union of raw honey, white holistic clay, and aromatic pure plan oils to free you of the days pollutants revealing a calm and balanced complexion, that is plush, clear and breathtakingly soft.
It can be used as a mask or a cleanser. It feels so amazing as a mask I seriously count down the hours until I can sneak upstairs and put this on at the end of the day. It’s like happy hour for my face! I let it sit on my skin as long as I can before rinsing off.
If I had to choose one product from her collection this would be it! I highly recommend starting here.
THE PROBLEM SOLVER
This intense treatment mask can be used as a spot treatment or an allover mask. It is in powder form until you mix with water to create a mousse only releasing its magic at the exact moment of use so you experience full potency every time. I don’t know if it is hormones, the changing weather, not washing my pillow cases enough, whatever the cause of my occasional outbreaks this has been my go to solution. I always use it as a mask. It purifies and tightens pores, extinguishes inflammations, fights and heals blemishes, jump starts circulation in the epidermis and detoxifies the skin. Seriously what doesn’t it do, the call it the over-achiever for good reason!
THE CLEAN DIRT
This daily microdermabrasion is an energizing blend of cleansing clays warming spices and salts that lifts impurities. Also in powder form until mixed with water, activating vitamin C encourages cellular rejuvenation. Note a slight tingling sensation! I use this in the PM a few nights a week when I feel like I need a refresher, usually the days I didn’t have the time or energy to put makeup on in the first place. On the off chance I have makeup on I remove first with an oil based cleanser. The stimulation treatment transforms and refines skins appearance leaving you silky smooth and gorgeously radiant! Thank you magic dust, I’m loving my youthful dewy glow, I think I will keep you around.
THE JASMINE GARDEN
This is my go to “toner product” after cleansing and before moisturizing. The others ones I tried just left be wanting more. This is the perfect combination! It is nourishing, but still light, not too harsh, leaving your skin a bit dewy, and the smell isn’t too strong, or faint, it is sheer perfection. Each delicious droplet infusing cells with antioxidant protection, restoring elasticity and my favorite part helping reduce redness and inflammation.
THE YOUTH DEW
I’m used to using serums and moisturizers, I typically tend to go for this combo with the heavier moisturizers in the pm. I was first introduced to oil moisturizers on my green journey with my Kypris Elixir. Let me just say that one is amazing. So I was a bit hesitant to try this one given I had one I loved at home. For one reason or another I really enjoy product lines that are made to go together. So I took a leap of faith and started to use this after I used the Honey Mud, Problem Solver or Clean Dirt. And I’ve never looked back! It is an over the top hydrating potion that transforms your skin with 20 indulgent plan and botanical oils infused with time stopping CoQ10. It smells amazing, is quick absorbing, and makes my skin feel so soothed.
THE BLUE COCOON
This beauty balm always put a smile on my face. A little goes a long way! So use sparingly all over your face or just on troubled areas that could use a little TLC. With the kids and their desire to keep me up all night I have been using this in the PM on my eyes and any problem areas. It provides nourishment and relief to delicate, inflamed, and irritable skin conditions. And it’s another winner in the scent department, so calming and relaxing. Perfect before bed to help you drift off to sleep!
THE GOOD STUFF
This is a decedent total body elixir. Another new green venture for me, using body oils vs body lotions. Because this one is so high end. I save it for my neck and chest. I can’t say this enough about this line, the smell is amazing for this product too. Especially since I no longer use conventional perfumes. 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.
