natural beauty buff | may lindstrom, may lindstrom skin, part 2

In the beginning, these “natural beauty buff” features came together purely out of my curiosity over what beauty founders use on a regular basis.

According to your clicks and comments, they’ve been wildly successful, and I hope the founders and I are bringing you interesting new products to consider, true testimonials and pure inspiration to explore the beauty of green skincare and cosmetics.

One thing, though, that has come out of these features — and especially the two-part series that May of May Lindstrom Skin has contributed to — is a sheer awareness for how amazingly supportive the green beauty industry is of all those involved in its continued success.

No matter what your role — blogger, editor, founder, makeup artist or whatever — this community of eco-product lovers has been so supportive in people’s search for what’s right for them.

Beyond that, what thrills me is how beauty founders whose collections may traditionally “compete” with each other so lovingly gush over their fellow entrepreneurs’ lines and the little space they are carving out for themselves in this world.

This is what natural beauty is all about — and what better founder to express this than May Lindstrom.

Here’s what’s inside May’s beauty box (aka a beautiful reuse of the May Lindstrom Skin Complete Experience gift box).

As usual, I’ve starred the products I also use and love.

*The Good Stuff

My crazy decadent head-to-toe radiance oil. I drizzle this in the bath, massage it on head-to-toe immediately after a shower, glide its gorgeous gold shimmer over exposed shoulders, decollete and legs on date night and run droplets through my hair for a hypnotic moisture treatment that sends me to bed feeling soft and sultry. It’s the sexiest multi-tasker you’ll ever meet.

*Widu Bamboo Hair Brush

I’m still looking for the perfect brush for my thick, naturally curly and generally wild mane. Widu is the best I’ve found, but isn’t quite my soul mate. Anyone have a favorite you think I’d love?

Kjaer Weis Cream Blushes

I am enamored with the simultaneously sleek and heavy packaging and even more so with the formulations. I layer “Desired Glow” and “Lovely” for a super natural flush that makes me look and feel a little bit giddy.

*RMS Living Luminizer

The absolute best little product for adding glow and light to skin. When you want to look “lit from within” and fake a good night (or life’s!) sleep, this is a must.

*RMS “Un” Cover-Up

A few dabs of this creamy concoction and any redness in my complexion is gone. Evens skin tone beautifully while looking and feeling just like your skin at its best.

*The Youth Dew

My ultimate skin savior. This tiny bottle packs a serious punch, delivering all the hydration your skin needs in just a couple drops while helping to balance your own natural oils, restore health and vibrance and scare off any little lines or wrinkles before they have a chance to appear — oh yes, and it’s amazing for clearing breakouts. I can go on and on; this one will never leave my collection.

*Revolution Organics Freedom Glow Beauty Balm

I have this in “Blushed” and LOVE IT. Such a gorgeous pop of color for lips and cheeks.

*Nourish Organic Deodorant in Almond Vanilla

I like to make my own deodorant, but when I need something quick and easy to toss in my bag that works, this is the best I’ve found. It has a beautiful soft scent and is non-irritating.

*La Bella Figura Bohemia Verde Aromatic Hair Elixir

A few drops of this smoothed through my hair is the perfect aromatic treat. I adore the scent, and co-founder Victoria has become a friend.

*Eco Tools Foundation Brush

Eco Tools makes the best makeup brushes, by far. They also happen to be cruelty free, environmentally friendly and ridiculously inexpensive.

*W3LL People Nudist Colorbalm Stick in Poppy

The love child of a lip stick and a lip balm, I keep this in my pocket for pretty on-the-go color.

*ILIA Lipstick Crayon in Karma Chameleon

I just picked this up and am loving it. It’s beautiful coral — bright, happy and super flattering. The crayon twists up to reveal more product, so you don’t have to bother with a sharpener.
