May Lindstrom Problem Solver: REVIEW

The brand:

American, organic, luxury, expensive.

The product:

A clay mask. Well, the powder part. You add the water in and it’s an active clay mask.

Who can use it:

People with a thick skin and willingness for a bit of a burn. Avoid if you’re sensitive, rosacea, prone to redness.

Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?:

Vegan, and cruelty free.

Ingredients:

SOLUM FULLONUM (FULLER’S EARTH) CLAY, RED MOROCCAN RHASSOUL CLAY, **THEOBROMA CACAO (RAW CACAO), RED ALAEA SEA SALT (SEA SALT AND RED ALAEA), L-ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), SODIUM BICARBONATE, CHARCOAL POWDER (ACTIVATED BAMBOO CARBON), *VANILLA PLANIFOLIA BEAN, *LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA (LAVENDER) FLOWER, *ALTHAEA OFFICINALIS (MARSHMALLOW) ROOT, *** BOSWELLIA SERRATE GUM (FRANKINCENSE) POWDER, *CENTELLA ASIATICA (GOTU KOLA), *ARCHANGELICA (ANGELICA) ROOT, **CINNAMOMUM ZEALANICUM BLUM (CEYLON CINNAMON), *MYRISTICA FRAGANS (NUTMEG), *SYZYGIUM AROMATICUM (CLOVE), *CURCUMA LONGA (TURMERIC), *CAPSICUM ANNUUM (CAYENNE) PEPPER, +EUGENOL. – *CERTIFIED ORGANIC **CERTIFIED FAIR TRADE ***WILD HARVESTED +COMPONENT OF ESSENTIAL OIL

Problematic ingredients?:

For some people: essential oils, and strong actives. I like those, though.

Packaging:

Glass black opaque jar. Very luxe, not so easy to travel with.

How to use:

‘Activate one tablespoon powder with just shy of equal parts water to form a soft, rich mousse. Smooth over skin and relax 30-45 minutes. Expect tingling heat sensation. Step into a warm shower, allowing the steam and running water to rehydrate the masque before rinsing as you massage gently with your fingertips’

This is how I would use it too.

I would use this once a week to begin, but I used it more often when I felt like it.

How much:

£89 for 250ml. I KNOW. I used it pretty regularly and it lasted me over a year though….

The Good:

The fuller’s clay and Red Moroccan Rhassoul clay are very cleansing. It is true that the mask stimulates the skin. Skin is left more refreshed and smooth.

The Bad:

To say it’s ‘the problem solver’ is over ambitious. I get that it does deal with congested skin in an effective way, but this is not a one-stop solution for your congested skin. Nothing is. Don’t buy this thinking that all your spots will go away.

Some people do find this mask purely painful.

And cmon £90…….

Recommend?:

If you love masks and have the money for it then go for it. As much as I loved some of the effect, I’m not sure I would shell out £90 for it again.
