@k617 I agree, there are masks I prefer more than the TH resurfacing, but I've yet to find something I like as much as the purifying one.

 

blue cocoon is hella expensive, but I only use it at night and even though I've had mine since Feb/March, I'm not even close to half done it yet. I think it will last at least a year.

@Mochapj I'm intrigued because it would also make a good temperature indicator like your IG post! Smiley Wink

 

My only concern with the Purifying Mask is that algae is a 5 on the comedogenic scale and the mask has brown algae in it. After using a trial of Tatcha's camellia cleansing oil, I broke out in tiny colourless bumps, and that was the only new skincare I was using. Not sure if it's something else in the oil but Tatcha's products algae extracts? Don't think it's the camellia oil since the Blue Cocoon has it too and I did not react to it.

 

It's been... 3 days? Since using the TH mask and so far no adverse effects. Hopefully I won't run into an issue with it because it's so great!

@mochapj @luvgloss13 @Cyncynn - Just wanted to thank you all for May Lindstrom Recommendation Smiley Happy I ordered Problem Solver with Cult Beauty Deal  and I have to say it is wonderful. I got a stubborn pimple on my cheek and right above my lip. This helped a lot with drying that one and control my breakouts too.

Glad to hear it @dioradict!

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

I need to do mine soon. Smiley Happy

Not Luxury.. but I am wondering if anyone has the PTR firmx eyelid lift serum? I would love to hear how it is working out.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@bem564 what kit is this? It looks like the perfect trial size to try their items

@tuinamaster Hi! This was not a kit. May Lindstrom will send you samples of the things you would like to try along with your online order. If I remember correctly, ML may be offering travel sized kits in the future. Perhaps someone can chime in, I believe there are some boutiques that carry the ML brand that offer samples of her line as well. Smiley Happy

May Lindstrom Pendulum Potion

Her instructions per the email sent to me from her Director of Care....

To experience The Pendulum Potion, make a small pool in your palms, pressing together and inhaling deeply. Massage gently into your dry skin, focusing on areas on congestion, heavier makeup and environmental debris. Wet hands and continue massage and then place a warm, steamy face towel over face and neck, hold, rinse and repeat until skin is soft and cleansed, gently sweeping upwards and complete with a final rinse.

 

First impressions: (and I'd love to report back in a week or two) I had a light amount of make-up on today. I used 3 or 4 pumps of the Potion. Not necessary, I think 1-2 pumps would suffice. The color is a light yellow. Slightly more viscous than other cleansing oils I've used. I was afraid it would run through my fingers & I would lose product but that needn't be a worry. It smells simply divine. Like sweet citrus, chocolate and Jasmine. The Potion feels luxurious when rubbed in, very hydrating with no tugging on my skin. I added water as instructed and expected to have some emulsifying, but if there was it was slight. I used a Muslin Cloth to wipe away, followed by a quick rinse. My skin feels cleansed, not tight. I do have a couple of areas of congestion/redness that I'm dealing with. The Potion felt soothing to those areas. I have to say. The sensory experience alone was amazing. I kept cupping my palms up to my nose and inhaling. It sounds funny, but I must have done that 5 times. 

 

 

Spoiler

And the ingredient list:

This is a beautifully decadent blend of the following:

tamanu oil
camellia oil
macadamia oil
avocado oil
olive oil
plum kernel oil
cocoa absolute
peru balsam
sweet orange
myrrh
jasmine absolute
yang-ylang
lemon
frankincense

Thank you! I may have to try it when it comes out! The smell you describe sounds a lot like blue cocoon to me 😉

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

You're very welcome. It's something special, for sure.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Lovely. I adore that packaging! Smiley Happy

Has anyone ordered from Chantecaille direct? Do they give any samples or deluxe minis with their orders?

 

I got the Rose de Mai Cream the other day at Nordstrom and it is so lush on my skin. I want to try more stuff and get more travel sizes or minis or sample pots...I've gotten a few from the SA at Nordstrom, but I don't want to seem like a pest lol. 

 

Are there any other good products I should try from Chantecaille?

 

Thanks!

I've ordered from Chantecaille.com a few times and have never gotten a single sample. I'd rather order from a SA. Berrdorf Goodman is having their gift card event in September so that could be a good time to buy. I like their vital essence with Arbutin, their rose face oil and their rose water toner.  At BG, there is a gift and you get $25 off if you spend $250. I can give you the name of my SA if you'd like

Has anyone tried Arcona products? If so what are your favorites?

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

I love Arcona's cranberry toner. It smells amazing, and it leaves my skin feeling super clean and hydrated at the same time.

 

I just recently bought a new bottle, and was disappointed to see that they got rid of the pump mechanism though. Packaging means a lot to me, and shaking the stuff out just seems like a step backward. It makes a beautiful and luxurious smelling product feel...well...less so. 

 

I feel snotty for saying this, but for the price I will probably won't buy it again. It's a great product, but the cheaper packaging annoys me every time I use it.

The only product I really like is the Golden Grain Gommage. A SA did a facial using it on me, and I immediately purchased it my next visit to Nordstrom. The other stuff I've tried was underwhelming, and my face had an allergic reaction to one of the cleansing bars (big, red welts all over my face).

I've tried all their cleansers and I'm not a fan since it felt drying on my skin. I use the cranberry gromage and like it but there are better things out there. The wine oil is pretty nice along with the wine mask. The triad pads are great for on the go. I do like that the products lean towards the natural side
