May Lindstrom is the undisputed queen of rituals and pampering — and her products are the ultimate messengers of love and care as far as I’m concerned.

I couldn’t have asked for a better solid love potion during weeks of red, puffy, inflamed skin brought on by tears and stress.

To calm my skin during a trying time, I turned to May Lindstrom Skin’s The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate to heal myself.

{May generously sent me a sample of her at-the-time unreleased Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate. My sample is not packaged in the final black jar with gold branding, but the insides are the same and it’s still a lovely Myron jar!}

Blue tansy, the star ingredient in The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate, is celebrated for its calming effects on both the skin and the mind.

It helps release heat from the body, and for me, just looking at the cool blue tone puts me at ease.

The act of applying May Lindstrom Skin’s The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate is extremely serene; digging into the dense mixture of oils and butters feels like breaking new ground — an opportunity to heal with every use.

As you gently warm the balm between your hands and massage it onto your face and neck, it transforms into a silky, dry oil that delivers the perfect envelope of moisture and dewiness to your skin while kissing away redness.

I found it heavenly to use both day and night, and as an oily-skinned person, appreciated the lightweight texture of this balm/oil. You can layer makeup on top very quickly and flawlessly.

If you need more moisture, you may want to supplement with an additional oil or cream, but the consistency was absolutely perfect to me — who doesn’t love a dry finish?

Here’s what’s inside May Lindstrom Skin’s The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate that helps work this magic:

Organic camellia seed oil, fair trade shea butter, fair trade theobroma cacao seed butter, fair trade virgin marula oil, yangu oil, organic baobab oil, organic blue tansy oil, wild harvested myrrh oil, organic lavender oil, wild harvested frankincense oil, organic geranium rose oil, organic vanilla planifolia CO2 total essential oil, schisandra sphenanthera CO2 fruit extract, organic immortelle oil, ravensara aromatica oil

I’m over the moon about May Lindstrom Skin’s The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate because it’s made with so many of my favorite skin-soothing and acne-fighting ingredients, yet it’s packaged and delivered in a way that feels and looks luxurious instead of greasy and clinical.

  • Organic camellia seed oil stole my heart months ago with its lightweight texture and sweet herbal scent.
  • Shea butter is a constant obsession, especially in dry times, yet this formulation feels light and airy.
  • Marula oil is packed with antioxidants and fatty acids and lends a hand in soothing irritation.
  • Frankincense, myrrh and immortelle have all been godsends for preventing acne, yet have subtle, blendable scents that don’t scream “blemish cream!”

If you need a little help healing the effects of broken capillaries, I wholeheartedly recommend indulging in May Lindstrom Skin’s The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate.

You may even find that the ritual of applying it helps heal broken feelings, too. That’s how much May’s formulations take care of you both inside and out.

    It looks like a ultimate green beauty product…

    I need some blue in my life..My skin has seriously taken a beating this winter! going through a stressful period, and my skin is showing it!

    • I know what you mean! Between stress and the cold, my skin is getting angry. I hope you can get some Blue Cocoon in your life soon, and I hope your stress levels go down! Yoga is another good healer :)

    What a lovely review, you write so well! I used the blue cocoon a lot back in December when my skin was all irritated from winter. There’s an unexplained feeling of joy and calmness whenever I apply it on my skin, it’s so magical! When I feel out of sorts yoga does the trick for me too.

    • Thanks for the compliment and the comment! The Blue Cocoon is so soothing. I truly cherish it. That calm and joy has to be from the scent of blue tansy … just incredible. Yoga is definitely my friend, too — I need that time to myself, to just be. Appreciate you stopping by! xoxo

  • I think this may just be the balm I’ve been looking for! I have tried so many oils, balms, creams, etc and none of them work for my combo skin. I always end up getting clogged pores and/or breaking out. This might be a dumb question, and maybe I should know already…. But is Geranium Rose Oil the same as Rose oil? I ask because I seem to get dermatitis from some products and I’ve pinpointed that it’s rose oil. That would be such a bummer because this sounds amazing!!!!

  • I have been wanting to try this since before it launched – everything May comes up with is just magical! I’ve been on a no-spend challenge in anticipation of the move, but perhaps next month I’ll finally pull the trigger on this one!

    • Agree so much — May’s line has been a joy to experience. I don’t blame you on paring down pre-move. I’m so excited for you! And I visit NYC more than DC, so we are going to have to finally connect :) Let me know when you get a chance to try Blue Cocoon … I’m sure you will have a beautiful post + pics up, yes?! :) xoxo

    Oh lala…..really want to try it now. Looking so gorgeous!!!!!! :-)

  • Lara

    I am totally underwhelmed by this product; it did nothing for me. And the price is really outrageous.

    • Sorry to hear that, Lara! What were your expectations for The Blue Cocoon? Do you have inflammation / acne / dryness? I’m sure May would love to know your feedback and skin type. I agree the price is very high, but for me it doesn’t take much product every day to get the job done, so it lasts a long time. I hope you find something you like! What else are you using?

  • this just sounds unbelievably amazing! I’m tempted even despite the price tag xx
