may lindstrom skin the good stuff body oil

The way that skin chef May Lindstrom describes her own “The Good Stuff” radiance oil has stuck with me:

“It’s my fabric-free lingerie,” she says, and I can only imagine a little wink and hint of mischief in her pretty eyes.

I concur with her five-word description, but today I’ll add some more words to describe my thoughts on this sexy body oil.

may lindstrom skin the good stuff body oil

{May Lindstrom Skin sent me a sample of “The Good Stuff” body oil, which retails for $110 for a 3.38 black glass pump bottle.}

Like the rest of her jaw-dropping line, “The Good Stuff” is packaged in a sleek black glass bottle with branding etched in gold. Typically, I’m not a total sucker for packaging (it’s what’s inside that counts!), but you just can’t help but appreciate the beautiful simplicity in May Lindstrom Skin’s delivery. A+ as usual.

Also like the rest of her collection, I’m smitten with “The Good Stuff.” I like to use it in the evening, after a warm shower or bath post-yoga, to feel a little more feminine and a little more sexy, after a tough Ashtanga session.

The amber-gold liquid oil has a bit of shimmer to it, thanks to mica, yet it’s barely noticeable and doesn’t leave that odd mica residue on your palms after application.

(See how May Lindstrom herself applies “The Good Stuff.”)

While this little detail doesn’t really matter if you’re using “The Good Stuff” before bedtime, think about the gorgeous cast it would have on your skin by candlelight — if you see where I’m going — that’s where that fine detail comes into play!

Another amazing detail that is sort of a big deal when it comes to this body oil is the intoxicating scent. Cocoa, cocoa and more cocoa fills you as you massage this oil into your skin.

But don’t think of straight-up chocolate. No, no. Not at all. It’s a more layered, balanced cocoa, complete with hints of lavender, rose and ylang ylang that balance out the powerful scent. In short, it’s heavenly — if your idea of heaven involves fountains of chocolate (mine does).

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Macadamia Nut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Plum Kernel Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Organic Cocoa Absolute Oil, Organic Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil, Organic Rose Absolute Essential Oil,  Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Mica

I appreciate that May has chosen all-organic ingredients for her body oil — for something that is going on my skin from head to toe, I like knowing that it’s certified organic.

With that said, though, I wish there were just a few more exotic carrier oils (to replace the jojoba, olive and sunflower oils) to truly feel justified in the $110 price tag. I wonder what it would be like with rosehip and argan oils, or even something more exotic like kukui and hazelnut oils. Just dreaming out loud, here!

While I received “The Good Stuff” as a generous gift from May, I admit that I struggle a bit with the thought of purchasing it myself. It’s an expensive oil that needs to cover 5’7” inches of woman. Is it worth the splurge?

Given that I would just use it a few evenings a week, it would probably be a green light because I could make it last so long. It’s also a lovely multipurpose product, as it can be used to deep-treat the hair and scalp, too.

May has done such an amazing job with creating products that truly feel special that it would probably be difficult for me to use the very last drop and not reorder a bottle soon. I’ll be sure to let you know if May Lindstrom Skin’s “The Good Stuff” gets on my “products I repurchased” list.

    I really like that you mentioned the ‘candlelight’ part! A beautiful description for it ;). I freaking love this body oil too although I don’t care too much for the Mica particles but they really are nice.

    I agree with more exotic ingredients instead of the have-it-in-my-cupboard Jojoba, Olive and Sunflower oils but to be fair, this body oil is the silkiest one I have ever tried and gives a perfect hydration for my skin without layering a body cream on top. The scent is also the best scent I have ever smelled.. there’s nothing else like it. I am a huge huge huge fan of cacao, I drink I eat I breathe Cacao, almost literally so knowing that there is a note of it in this body oil.. I am definitely going to repurchase it. It’s a bit difficult to justify the price tag, but the scent keeps me coming back so hard to resist.

    • Thank you, Asti! This oil is oh-so-luscious, and I’m definitely going to keep everyone aware if it does become a must-buy for me. There are so many other beautiful body oils out there that cost a bit less, but this is the first lovely cocoa one that just has so many layers to the scent. Most body oils I’ve tried and loved are floral, so May’s definitely is different!

      I agree on the silkiness of this oil. I have some thicker oils I use in the winter, but this one is perfect for warmer weather and nights out. I love that you are a cacao fan! Seems like a good match :) Appreciate you stopping by my blog, and I will go check yours out now, too :) xoxo

    I always get a little excited when I see a product includes rosehip seed oil in the ingredients. It’s so good for improving the look of your skin. The same goes for chamomile – it’s such a soothing plant.

    Nice review! I have made my own body oils for the past 18 years and it is nice to see that many companies are catching up. I really like the idea of the mica particles; finally a natural alternative for people who used nuxe and nars in the past. However, I agree with you on the notion that it should contain more exotic oils; I also agree that 110$ (or 85£!) is very hard to justify no matter how nice it is especially as the ingredients are not that special.
