Product Review: The May Lindstrom Line (And Why I Now Wash My Face With Dirt) [UPDATED]

Here’s the rub with natural face care lines: They can feel a bit samesame after a while. A non-foaming cleanser, an amazing oil, and maybe a lovely hydrosal toner or spray…

Don’t get me wrong, we love this formula—less is more, and it’s precisely this simple well-executed combination of pure ingredients that made us first fall for the likes of Kahina, Stark, and Evan Healy. But once you have your faves, it’s hard to justify trying 20 other brands that offer something similar. That’s why this May Lindstrom line jumped out at me on first use.

My intro to the line came from natch beauty glamour girl Spirit Beauty. “You have to try it,” she said in a Facebook message. And within a month of her sending it my way, I got an email from Evolue inviting me by for a facial with May. Hmm, a new line so quickly available at two of our favorite retailers? This was boding well.

The products are really special, in many ways. First the packaging: Done in a beautiful black glass with gold lettering, it brings all kinds of glamour to this line, that could easily have felt a bit crunchy given its ingredients. Instead, really beautiful. May herself is also a vision. At the risk of sounding like some silly magazine article about a celebrity, I will anyways: This woman is gorgeous, with the kind of skin so impeccable and glowy that it’s almost hard to look at. Like the sun!

But looks can be deceiving. When May and I met she described the horror stories of her various environmental sensitivities and the problem skin she had. A country girl at heart—who’s been mixing her own products since childhood—when she first came to LA (to be a chef) the city wreaked a debilitating havoc on her skin from head to toe. Through diet and natural products (and fewer products), she eventually found her way, and ended up reticently becoming a model. It was on set one day that she had her a-ha moment to start her own brand.

“I’d very quickly mixed an oil one morning to bring to the shoot,” she told me. And lo, everyone there was trying it and begging her to make them some.

So the line. I’ve tried everything at this point other than the body oil, and there’s nothing I don’t like. Her Youth Dew serum is a beautiful oil blend that competes with faves and smells amazing—I’m a sucker for geranium I’ve come to learn. Here are the ingredients:

persea americana (avocado) oil*, limnanthes alba (meadowfoam seed) oil*, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil*, olea europaea (olive) oil*, prunus spp (plum kernel) oil, hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) oil*, rosa rubiginosa (rosehip seed) oil*, punica granatum (pomegranate) oil*, calophyllum inophyllum (tamanu) oil*, borago officinalis (borage seed) oil*, aleurites moluccans (kukui nut) oil, oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil*, pelargonium graveolens (geranium rose) essential oil*, citrus paradisi (grapefruit) essential oil*, citrus sinensis (sweet orange) essential oil*, citrus limon (lemon) essential oil*, rosa damascena (rose absolute) essential oil*, rosa damascena (bulgarian rose) essential oil*, citrus aurantium (neroli) essential oil*, daucus carota (carrot seed) essential oil***, ubiquinone (coenzyme q10).

But for me the standouts are The Clean Dirt “cleanser” and The Problem Solver mask.

The Clean Dirt: This cleansing clay comes dry, which I love because it never goes bad. You pour a little into the palm of your hand and add a few drops of water then begin mixing. You can also mix it with a brush, as May did when she gave me my facial. It’s hard to describe this stuff, it doesn’t actually foam but science happens and the mixture expands into an airy kind of paste. It’s consistency is definitely exfoliating by nature so you don’t need to scrub it too much. Just smooth it over your face, let it sit for a minute and then rinse. It feels great, and gives an instant glow.  Here are the ingredients:

white halloysite clay, red moroccan rhassoul clay,  red alaea sea salt, ascorbic acid (vitamin c), sodium bicarbonate, althaea officinalis (marshmallow) root*,rosa centifolia (pink rose)*, calendula officinalis (calendula) flower*, cinnamomum zeylanicum (cinnamon)*, myristica fragans (nutmeg)*, syzygium aromaticum (clove)*, curcuma longa (turmeric)*, zingiber officinale (ginger)*, vanilla planifolia bean*, theobroma cacao (raw cacao)**.

The Problem Solver: This product feels like the cleanser’s more intense cousin. The process is the same, but the idea is to leave on this jet-black clay mask for up to 45 minutes (I personally don’t go that long though, 15 is fine by me). Note: This product feels very active, and sting-tingles a little on the skin. But I’ve done it numerous times and the flush only lasts a few minutes for me, and it really feels like it’s jump-starting my circulation. I don’t use it that often, but when I do I feel like my skin has a new lease on life. I also use it to spot treat incoming pimples. Here are the ingredients:

fuller’s earth clay, red moroccan rhassoul clay, theobroma cacao (raw cacao)**, red alaea sea salt, ascorbic acid (vitamin c), sodium bicarbonate, bamboo carbon charcoal powder, vanilla planifolia bean*, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flower*, althaea officinalis (marshmallow) root*, boswellia carteri (frankincense)***, centella asiatica (gotu kola)*, archangelica (angelica) root*, cinnamomum zeylanicum (cinnamon)*, myristica fragans (nutmeg)*, syzygium aromaticum (clove)*, curcuma longa (turmeric)*, capsicum annuum (cayenne) pepper*.

One note that I failed to mention in the first draft of this post: These two products come in HUGE containers. The cleanser is nearly 7 oz. and the mask is over 8 oz., which is about 4x the size of comparable products. Just wanted to clear that up since there have been many comments around price. At $60, the cleanser is actually on the more reasonable side at that size.

May herself is a major product minimalist, so she says some people use the cleanser every day, while others only use it a few times a week. I’m in the second camp, and I have a feeling she might be too. That’s another thing I really love about these two products: While they’re not inexpensive, they will probably last me for close to a year. And if there’s any confusion about how to use, you can watch May’s videos on her site and on the sites that carry the line.

Have you tried this line? What do you think??

    I am over the moon about May’s line. I received the set for Christmas and I am in love. Like you said, it’s completely unique. May is truly an artist.

  2. fern says:

    I have only tried the Clean Dirt and the Problem Solver and I am obsessed with both of them. Like, totally in love. I use the cleanser twice per day because it’s the best thing ever. I have incredibly acne prone skin, and it helps to keep things (pimples, hyperpigmentation from pimples) at bay. The cleanser combines non-soap cleanser and exfoliator and has become my HG cleanser (it also smells heavenly). I use Sprout’s makeup remover before I use the Clean Dirt – I’m unsure if the cleanser alone would remove makeup. I use the mask about twice per week and I do keep it on for about 30-45 minutes. It shrinks existing acne and fades scars. I agree that the jars will last a long time, even wth frequent use. I have found that my skin doesn’t mind frequent exfoliation – it actually helps to prevent breakouts, for me, by getting rid of little bumps before they become inflamed, so these products have made me and my skin super happy. I still have acne (it’s hormonal), but it’s not as big of deal and far less noticeable since starting to use this cleanser and mask.

  3. Pepper says:

    I have the Clean Dirt and I am head over heels in love with it! It smells delicious and makes my skin look & feel gorgeous. I use it most mornings, and sometimes I’ll let it hang out on my face for a few minutes before rinsing it off. I will definitely be trying the rest of her products when I run out of some other stuff.

  4. Meredith says:

    I have to say, this line of products really rubs me the wrong way. The line’s Good Stuff is $110 and the description reads: Enviably Privileged Skin that Whispers its Sensuality and Begs to be Touched.
    “Enviably privileged skin” sounds pretty classist. I really recoiled when I read this.
    The Problem Solver retails at $90, The Clean Dirt is $60, and The Youth Dew is $120. No, I don’t think I’ll be trying any of these.

  5. BrittanyG says:

    Hi Girls,
    I have tried every product from May’s line. Her products are so amazing. My personal favorite is the clean dirt which I use every other morning. My skin has this instant glow and evenness when I use it. I swear I never wear any foundation and this gives my skin such a even texture. I just add a little living Luminizer and I’m off to go for the day. I should also add that May is one of the sweetest women you’ll ever come in contact with if you ever connect with her on Facebook or twitter. She will help you will any questions or concerns you may have while using her products. I wrote a Full review on my blog on each of her products if you ladies want a more in-depth review.

  6. Mercedes says:

    So glad you guys did a post on this line! I really like the Clean Dirt cleanser, though I would say only use it once a week or so because it’s that intense (for me). The other days of the week I either use Jane Iredale’s magic mitt with just water, or an oil + hot washcloth. I’m DYING to try the mask, but Spirit Beauty Lounge doesn’t offer samples of it. I bought the Clean Dirt without trying based on rave reviews, so maybe I’ll take a similar plunge with the mask.

  7. Rebecca Bailey says:

    What a fun product review! I wish I could try this line, but when I was investigating it a while back, and I decided the EOs and such were not a good idea for my sensitive skin (maybe would have tried samples though). Many people may love the warming EOs, but if you like the idea of the Clean Dirt and are sensitive like me, I found an alternative. Looking further into the idea of clay cleansing, I found that it’s the rhassoul clay that does that expansion-almost-foamy thing when water is added, so I bought some from Mountain Rose Herbs. It’s cheap and works great as a mask and a wash. Even that, though, is a little much for me in the dry winter, so I’m using it as a mask only occasionally and on the least sensitive areas of my face. I find it gives a little lift, which is great although temporary. When the warmer weather hits I’m going to be using the rhassoul more often, I think. If you are normal to oily I bet you’d love it even in the winter. And if you aren’t sensitive the May L sounds lovely!

  8. Ash says:

    I’ve had trouble with cinnamon and nutmeg staining my (very) pale skin– has anyone had that issue with these products?

  9. Renee says:

    How are they on skin that tends to be super dry/break out prone? So far I love pai for dry skin but I still have all of these obnoxious black heads I am contending with/the occasional annoying pimple that literally takes WEEKS to go away.

  10. Lolly says:

    I love, love, L.O.V.E the Clean Dirt! It does amazing, wondorous things to my skin! Seriously, have y’all seen that spoof Fotoshop by Adobé ad? Well, after using the Clean Dirt, I actually look like I have used Fotoshop by Adobé! My skin is smooth, it glows AND my bathroom smells like the most delicious bread being baked. Amazingness. Sadly, I don’t use it nearly as often as I’d like because it really is kind of a mess to prepare and use and makes my sinks look like (sorry!) someone took a poop in it, but boy is it worth the trouble! Also, that’s where being dry comes in handy: I don’t have to worry about the cleanser expiring on me before I have had a chance to finish it off.

    I think that the body oil and mask are next on my list. The body oil because I love a shimmery oil for the summer and the mask because by all accounts it sounds amazeballs. I’m not sure about the oil though. I feel like I need my skincare a bit more active these days, so I’ve been eyeing Yuli and Marie Veronique Pacific oils (NOT the rediculous MVO serum for $375, I hasten to add!)

  11. Catherine says:

    Beautiful packaging but WAY out of my price range. Have you done a post on Mad Hippie? Absolutely LOVE their products, they are affordable and effective.

  12. Rebecca W says:

    I am so intrigued by the cleansing dirt! I’ve been using Pai’s Sensitive cleanser for a couple years now, coupled with their sensitive moisturizer, and it’s helped reduce my redness but I’m still splotchy. It’s not acne, most spots :P, but my skin is far from even – the the point that I started using Juice Beauty’s tinted moisturizer. Sadly, I can’t afford that price at the moment so we’ll have to see if I can in a few months.

  13. Guilly says:

    I’ve been using this line for a couple of months now. I use everything but the body oil. I don’t care for the sparkle and it doesn’t seem to hydrate my body skin. But the Clean Dirt, Problem Solver and the lovely Youth Dew I love.
    I use the Clean Dirt maybe two to three times a week. Best exfoliant ever. The Problem Solver – once a week. I love the Youth Dew and it feels so wonderful right after the Clean Dirt. Great products.

  14. JJ says:

    You knew JJ would bring the fun on this one.

    $60 dollars for dirt? You can buy the clay without all the irritating essential oils for seven bucks at a health food store.

    You are paying for image, perception, packaging. Alex, you’re a marketing guru. You above anyone else here should know that (American Apparel *cough*)

    I won’t be buying these either. If anyone who formulates new products is reading, how about something without all the lavender and citrus essential oils? Maybe something unscented for the rest of us. And well under 100 bucks.

    Love and peace Namaste forever

  15. Josephine says:

    I am super interested in this line, but put off by the price. I do understand that Good Things cost real money, but to give these products a fair trial would cost more than I can afford. I’m hoping that as the line becomes more established/successful, they will make small/travel sizes available. I really am willing to shell out for good products,* but this is too rich for my blood–at least, it sure is without getting to do a serious trial run.

    *To illustrate: Most of my products are cheapity-cheap-cheap, but I was tempted enough by the ingredients and rave reviews of Ila’s face oil that I ordered two samples. That got me enough for a meaningful length of time using the product, and I ended up liking it so much that I bought the full size, which costs a pretty penny. It’s the most expensive beauty product I own, and I’m very happy with it, and it’s going to last me a very long time.

  16. therese says:

    The products do look good but for now out of my price range. I still am glad for the review. For now it will be an inspirational point to start from. I have been recently using sea buckthorn oil and rose hip oil for my face and love it. It is a nice switch from argan oil. I will maybe throw some of the ingredients listed for the dirt into my EH clay. I learn so much from the site.

  17. Audreiana says:

    I’ve never heard of this brand. I do love coming to this site just to find our about companies that I have never heard of. Like you, I really like the packaging from what I can see and I am really a sucker for packaging alone lol xo, Audreiana from True Beauty By Nature

  18. Jennifer K. says:

    Based on the reviews on the May Lindstrom website and the essential oils in these products, I won’t be able to use these products. But I would love to try the Problem Solver without the oils.

    So, Rebecca, when will you have the DIY for the Problem Solver ready?

  19. Silvy says:

    I would try these with a discount… But, I don’t get peoples’ EO complaints. Neither Clean Dirt or Problem Solver has EO’s. Problem Solver has lavender flowers, and both products have spices that might be a bit irritating.. no EO’s though. Am confused.

  20. Silvy says:

    Question, though- how are these for very dry skin?

  21. CA says:

    Ok I know this comment has nothing to do with the products, BUT…..the title of the post intrigued me. I’ve always wondered if you can clean your face with just dirt! (aka clay!) I use and love the the stuff as a mask and spot treatment, and it really is wonderful, but does anyone in this lovely lady community know if it will wash off yucky NYC street dirt?

  22. CA says:

    PS – I second JJ’s request for a commercial product without fragrance. I don’t need my products to smell luxurious, they just need to work. Please someone be reading this. Tata, Kahina, May…is anybody there?

  23. Rebecca Bailey says:

    @Silvy, I was looking at the Youth Dew which has many EOs, and I guess I just included the spices in the dry products in that category – actives that are too much for my sensitive skin. And I have trouble with too much clay – can’t use it every day – during the winter dry skin season. I’m guessing the clay based products should be used only occasionally on dry skin.

    @CA, when I use just rhassoul clay alone for cleansing, it’s not enough to take off my mineral makeup. I’ve done an oil cleanse first, then the clay. That works well for makeup and dirt.

    @Jennifer K., ha! I use Fuller’s Earth with a drop of lavender EO when I want to leave it on overnight. The lavender keeps it from leaving me red and splotchy – the Fuller’s Earth is strong stuff. It generally cures or gives major help to any developing blemishes. If you want to go completely without scent, use Fuller’s Earth plain or mix with rhassoul for a spot treatment or 15-20 min mask. But I wouldn’t leave that on overnight if you are at all sensitive. When the weather is less cold and dry I’ll be working more on clay DIY and will share!

  24. Anna says:

    @Meredith, I’m with you. I was over this line right when it came out. The packaging is STUNNING but, as any DIYer with half a brain will tell you, the ingredients don’t warrant that price tag.

  25. Andrea says:

    i soooo wish there wasn’t cinnamon in this…makes my skin look and feel like I have a sunburn :(

  26. Rose says:

    Thanks for the review! I like to hear about products that work, whether price is high, low or moderate, and make up my mind whether to try or not. Sometimes I might get a sample, or occasionally try a higher priced item, and use it interspersed with other produts, and it lasts longer. That with DIY items, it’s all good.

  27. Alexandra says:

    Hey guys, as always it’s great to hear everyone’s thoughts and experiences!

    One note that I’m going to add to the post: The containers for the clean dirt and clay are HUGE. I’m talking 3 to 4x the size of Evan Healy’s clay, if you’re familiar with that product. So, while I can’t comment on the ingredient cost, these two products are actually incredibly well-priced for a naturals line of this quality. Comparable to Stark and Evan I’d say.

  28. Smitten. Cannot wait to buy and try this line. I love the sophistication and people like May who continue to raise the bar for packaging on all-natural products. Giving up chemicals in products does not mean having to give up beautifully packaged products.

  29. Melissa says:

    Spices, EO’s, and scrubbyness….not for my extremely reactive skin! My cheeks would stay red for days lol!! I am really liking just the plain carrier oils, grapeseed and castor, seem to agree….for now….sigh….it changes like the seasons!

  30. Marlo says:

    May’s line is beautiful – fun to use, super effective, good value when considering the quantities and longevity and May provides the loveliest most personable customer service ever.

  31. Steph says:

    http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/newsletter/08/November/radiant.html

    To Anna’s DIY point above – here is a link for a cleansing grains recipe. – I have been making these cleansing grains for about a year and it is really helping to heal my acne scars (discoloration on olive skin), along with the queen of hungary water. I do not add the poppy seeds in the recipie, btw.

    This simple recipe is a nice way to try this sort of cleansing without the price tag. And it lasts forever – I think that is the plus side to any cleanser in this realm, like Alexandra said in the edited review.

    And I’ve had the same experience as Rebecca, re: makeup removal – makeup off with oil (sunflower/jojoba/soybean blend) first, then cleanse with the grains. I live in Bklyn, and this method certainly washes off city grime and makeup without stripping my skin.

    But the bottles in this line? To die for. It took a lot of self-control to not buy the clean dirt when I first saw those stunning bottles ….

  32. Caroline says:

    I am working on a DIY of this, I should have it by next week. I have a cleansing grains mix that I am currently using, I really like it. It has green clay, corn meal, oatmeal, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove powder, sea salt and turmeric. This can certainly be made for cheaper, but we also have to value the ideas of people who create products that we use (or are inspired by). The packaging truly is beautiful too!

  33. nancy says:

    Love reviews, so thank you. And also love reading the comments that follow .
    I’ve tried the Clean Dirt after positive review from Spirit D. and the product is an experience. It will last a long time and if you use the amount you are supposed to, it won’t leave a mess on your sink (and certainly won’t stain your face).
    I too do the OCM first and then use the Clean Dirt. As for price, I’ve considered the amount of product I was getting, the beautifully packaged product and rationalized that I do a lot of DIY which not only work but also cut costs in an amazing way..

  34. nancy says:

    @ Caroline,
    Looking forward to your DIY cleansing grain mix recipe! Please share it :)
    Thanks

  35. Stephanie says:

    I am excited to hear about your DIY @Caroline!!! Also, has anyone tried Evan Healy’s Lemongrass Facial Polish? It has clay mixed in with other plants and herbs and sounds lovely!

  36. Carla says:

    I have had wonderful results cleansing my face with Stellar from Pelle Beauty as I don’t breakout from it and it’s natural. I also like the idea about this cleansing dirt because it looks like it doesn’t have anything in it that would cause a breakout. Do you know if you can purchase a sample first?

  37. Tosha says:

    I think May’s products look amazing. I made my own DIY Clean Dirt and it turned out beautifully. I used some things I already had, rhassoul clay, redmond clay, real salt, cocoa powder, rosehips powder, calendula powder, clove powder, cinnamon, baking soda, vanilla bean specks, vitamin C and tumeric. It was super easy to stir up the powder and pour it into a bottle. I have absolutely loved it and was surprised at how good it smelled. It was a chocolately, cinnamon with a dab of vanilla smell. Of course I would love to try all of May’s product and hopefully will soon!

  38. Caroline says:

    Here is the promised DIY: Take 2 parts rhassoul clay, 1 baking soda, 1 part ascorbic acid, 1 part finely ground black lava salt, and then half parts of turmeric, black pepper (black pepper increases the bioavailability of turmeric), cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom powder. I omitted the flower powders as I didn’t have any on hand and my skin is also not at all sensitive. The foaming action I believe comes from the baking soda (base) and ascorbic acid mixing upon contact with water.

    I thought it was lovely! Followed up with my DIY huile rouge face oil (red raspberry seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, sea buckthorn oil, kalahari ootanga oil and oil soluble vitamin c).

  39. nancy says:

    @ Caroline, Thank you for the recipes. I was looking forward to one and got two instead, great!
    Where do you get your supplies?

  40. Hello everyone! I couldn’t help but pop in here to say hi. I am absolutely blown away by all your comments and kindness. I feel like a seriously proud mother. Thank you for making my heart flutter. Crafting this line has been the most incredible venture and I have truly poured everything into delivering a beautiful experience. To know it is appreciated means the world.
    I wanted to talk about a couple things. First is price. Many of you mention how expensive the line is and how that holds you back from taking the plunge. Believe me, I understand. I don’t want to dance around this subject, so I’ll just put it all out there. There is nothing cheap in the way I built May Lindstrom Skin.
    I created this line myself. This has been a solo venture. The formulations are mine. I have never used a lab and I have no production or fulfillment facilities. I blend every micro batch by hand and fill each bottle and box. Every package that leaves my studio is tied with a ribbon and includes a handwritten note on beautiful stationary. My sizes are generous and long-lasting, my ingredients are gorgeously fresh. And the glassware… it really is lovely. Packaging design took two years alone, so thank you from the bottom of my heart to those that have mentioned it. I take this more seriously than I could ever explain. I literally pour my heart into each and every bottle.
    When I decided to launch my retail line, I made a promise to myself that I would only do it if I could bring something really special to this market. I wanted to give you skincare that felt amazing to use, that inspired you to take a time out at the beginning and end of each day to simply love yourself a little extra. And I needed that ritual to deliver serious results – honestly remarkable changes in your skin. I refused to compromise on either account and I am very proud of these treats.
    To the DIY-ers, I adore you. You are my roots. My background is no different than yours. It is a magical thing when knowledge and intuition blend and you come up with something that shatters your ideas on what works and why. I love this so much. I get seriously happy every time I see a post with a new recipe inspired by something from my line.
    And for the sensitive types reading – I share your skin. I literally break out in blisters when I encounter synthetic skincare or even natural blends that are too harsh. I formulate for myself first and these four products are all I use, unless I’m in the studio concocting potions for the future. I do work with potent ingredients. If you are gun-shy about the essential oils, the warming spices, the clays, I get it. I am inviting you to trust in me. I have chosen the most pure ingredients, processed as simply as possible and blended with the deepest appreciation for delicate skin. There is a little magic to ratios and to how plants and minerals balance each other. I have seen incredible results in sensitive skin types, even those with conditions such as rosacea. If you write me (may@maylindstrom.com), I will walk you through a routine and guide you all along the way.
    I am very accessible so do feel free to be in touch with any thoughts or questions.
    Thank you all again for your support and enthusiasm. You are the most amazing community, I am humbled and grateful. And thank you, Alexandra. A million times over.

  41. Caroline says:

    @nancy On Amazon and my spice cabinet!

    @May Lindstrom- Thank you for your lovely ideas!

  42. I did a review on May’s line awhile back (http://beautybybritanie.com/2012/11/05/beauty-buzz-may-lindstrom-skin) and I am in love with everything she makes. The Problem Solver and The Clean Dirt are my favorites. My skin changes instantly after using her products. I have yet to come across anything like her formulations. They cannot be replicated. I love May and her line so much. So happy to see this review <3

  43. nancy says:

    @ Caroline, thank you :)

    @ May, congratulations! Well deserved praise. And yes, we all share the love for this community

  44. Katy says:

    Truth, when I’m out of clay, I think I’m going to try the problem solver. I have favorites, but I like to mix it up. The deep color the the mask and the packaging appeal to my vanity. I also want to add, until watching May’s videos I had never though of applying a clay mask with a bowl and brush. I just did that with my jar of Stark TE and it has revolutionized my clay mask experience. Thank you :)

  45. Mustang Sal says:

    I’ve never heard of this line, but it looks stunning. At first I was a little thrown off by prices, however when calculating whether the Problem Solver was worth it cost-wise, it turns out to be cheaper than the other products I regularly use (plus, the jet-black mask just looks awesome and I’m drooling over the packaging)! Evan Healy’s green tea clay is $25 for 2.4 oz, which to compare to the 8.45 oz the Problem Solver delivers, it would cost about $87 versus the Problem Solver’s $80. Now, I am an Acure* girl at heart, it’s price point is awesome and the products deliver, and I adore their Argan Stem Cell Mask. However, at $16 for 1 oz, adding that up to 8.45 oz costs a staggering $135! I’m set for now after stocking up on Black Friday sales, but when I run out, I think I’ll try the Problem Solver :)

    *I’ll be sticking with my Acure facial cleansing cream though, it’s cheap, it’s cost-effective, and it is so gentle and soothing to my skin

  46. @Katy – I can’t wait for you to try The Problem Solver! I think you will love it. And I am so happy you are using a brush now for your treatment experience. I think it adds that extra bit of luxurious feeling to your ritual, not to mention keeps the clay out of your nails! If you are feeling indulgent, I just added the most wonderful brush and treatment bowl to my arsenal of beauty tools. I’m so excited about these I cannot help but share!
