I have now been using the May Lindstrom line for many months, my skin has never looked better. I've tried so many different brands and none have given me the even, clear, glowing, skin I've been after till now. So I'm a huge May fan!
This spray toner is the newest addition to her range and I wondered whether it was really necessary but as it's by May I thought I'd give it a go. Oh my I'm so so pleased I did. It smells beautiful, really gorgeous, I'm desperate for her to make a perfume that smells just like it!!!
What's really odd is I really dislike gourmand fragrances but this is unlike anything I've ever come across, yes you can smell cocoa but yet it does not smell sweet or cloying like chocolate; yes it's Jasmine but not too really heady and floral; it's definitely exotic, almost oriental but yet it's lovely and light. I wish I could describe it better, it's just perfectly balanced like a very very beautiful perfume.
So I'd buy it just for the smell but at this price it needs to actually be of benefit to my skin, being by May of course it works wonderfully. I have really sensitive skin, suffer badly from Eczema and my skin can become irritated very easily, leaving it hot, red and sore. This really works to cool and calm, it locks in extra moisture and leaves my skin looking and feeling dewy and fresh. I use it after cleaning or exfoliating and before the blue cocoon or youth dew. If I'm using both I always add a spritz between to lock in as much moisture as possible. If I get hot or feel the need to freshen up, a quick spray and my skin feels cool and clean. If my skin is being particularly sensitive or feeling irritated this is just wonderful, instantly calming.
But I especially love it at night, once I'm completely ready for bed, even though I've already used it in my nighttime skin routine, I really lightly mist this all over, both me and my pillow and find I'm so much more relaxed and ready for sleep. Being an avid Caroline Hirons fan I have many, many toners, I've tried most of Caroline's favourites hunting for the right second tone, my search is definitely over as my other toners have sat on my dressing table gathering dust ever since first trying this, even my Queen of Hungary Mist which Il love. But I'm so totally hooked, I just can't not use this, best of all it really lasts, I've been using it for nearly three months, several times, every day and I've still got nearly half a bottle left!!!
