Am I mad? | spending this much on a face balm? | May Lindstrom | Blue Cocoon

Can I just hold up my hands and to admit to this being the most expensive pot of face balm I have EVER purchased... well it is and I have to say, it IS most defiantly worth every penny....


I cannot remember, where or how I came across this deliciously smelling balm, but I am sooo glad that I did.

Yes, it is incredibly expensive and yes I had to justify this purchase to my wallet, but, this is the state of my pot after having this for about a year, I will say that I have not used this every night and sometimes not for weeks, but you do not need much each application, so the jar will last me a long while yet.

There is something incredibly soothing about this balm, the smell, for one, is akin to expensive chocolate, it is quite fragrant, but not in a irritating way and to be honest, cannot actually pin down what it smell like, just to say that it smells like MAY LINDSTROM THE BLUE COCOON , anyone who has smelt it once, will never forget it :)

It is in a solid form in the jar - which I might add, is gorgeous in itself- but with the heat of your hands, when applying or rubbing between fingers, solidifies and the texture changes enabling you to give yourself a lovely little gentle massage, whilst breathing in the scent.

From what I can gather, the colour comes from the BLUE TANSY a powerful anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and soothe irritated skin, it also boasts to have antibacterial, antihistamine, and general anti-inflammatory properties,I used this on a rather sore and angry patch of dry skin on my daughter and by the morning it was soothed, still there, but so much more comfortable for her and that's the honest truth.

There is defiantly something soothing to the soul and mind in this too, I find that if I am a little agitated or stressed, I put this on before bed and it for some reason I am relaxed, whether this is a placebo effect and its all in the mid, the smell triggers off some reaction in the brain to say, 'you can relax now' I am not sure, BUT it works for me and that's all that matters, so not only do I have lovely skin in the morning, I awake feeling a little better mentally.

It is cruelty free, organic and all the ingredients are ethically sourced and wildgrown and I like that:)

So, for me, this is worth the money.  If I was not in a position to fork out for this, and at the time I was, I have looked into other products that might be similar but not in the higher price range and discounting Sunday Riley ( I have heard that they use colourant to make it look blue) I came across
KAHINA GIVING BEAUTY   their lip and face balm, I have not tried this or anything of their range, but this is one that I would be interested in taking a look at.



In Conclusion 

Love it and will most defiantly buy more when this runs out, Would love to try more of her products, but might have to mortgage the house for that!

  • Have you tried this?
  • Do you want to try it?
  • Do you think it is not necessary to spend so much on a skincare product?
