May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon

May Lindstrom, model turned self-proclaimed "beauty chef" is arguable the darling of the green beauty world. Her concoctions are elegantly packaged and smell divine. Each product is a daily sensory experience; incorporate two or more and you've got yourself a serious ritual.  

Her Jasmine Garden Mist (not pictured) is a light floral and chocolate-ly  scented mist that revives complexions midday. I keep a bottle on my desk at work and I get a lot of zen out of the 3 seconds I take to close my eyes and spray it over my face -- no matter what my officemates must be thinking. 

And her Blue Cocoon balm, blue with blue tansy, is a mystical looking solid oil that melts instantly upon hitting the skin. It's soothing and hydrating, and great at quelling inflammation. It heals angry breakouts, and works as a great lip balm and eye cream in the parched winter months. Just be careful if you open a tub of this in July, I sloshed a good bit of it all over my bathroom counter. Yet another reason to break this one open in the winter.
