A Little Piece of Heaven
There's no arguing that this little piece is price-y, so before ordering it for myself I read just about every review out there, reading the ingredients listing so many times I actually had it nearly memorized. Even with all the rave reviews I had read, nothing prepared me for how much I would actually fall in love with this dreamy balm.
I honestly use it for everything - as a nightly treatment for dry skin, a redness and blemish reducer, and even as an eye treatment. I even combine it with my concealer daily for the best under eye coverage I've ever had. It's a do-it-all product with a gorgeous, luxurious scent, and every time I use it I can't help but smile.
As for the size and price, I cannot stress enough how LITTLE of this product you need per application - literally just dabbing a fingertip onto the top of this will give you enough for most of your face. I know people say a little goes a long way with a lot of products, but it's never been as true as it is with this product. With daily use, I am nearly certain this will last me well over a year - if not more.
It is a very rich formula, so not only is it important to use a small amount so you don't waste it, but using a smaller portion is also the best way to get the most out of the product. There are very few products of this price point I'd recommend for everyone, but if you're looking to add a truly great piece to your skincare collection I'd suggest this in a heartbeat.185 found this helpful.Todd O.

Quality That Lives Up to the Hype
I'll likely be paying my credit card bill with a limb or a first born child to take care of my purchase of the Blue Cocoon. Except, I've received less cream for more money and been disappointed, so imagine my surprise when I came to the conclusion that this little gem from May Lindstrom was worth every penny.
Packaged in that little black jar is one of the most beautiful blue balms that smells, well, odd to me. I love the blue tansy smell, don't get me wrong, but there are so many different little nuances that I can't put my finger on. Before I know it, once it's on my skin it begins to lose it's scent and really melt in. I'm usually a little disappointed that I can't smell it anymore.
The effect is immediate. Skin is softer and calmed. Of course, I started using this product when I was sick with one of the nastiest colds of my life so I couldn't be sure if it was my fever breaking or the actual result of the product that made me look like I was glowing. A few days later I determined it was the Blue Cocoon making me look like that.
I was floored. I've had creams that were $165 for an ounce of what was touted to be a miracle. I've had creams that were $100 for the promise of magic. I've had serums for $200+ that promised to reactivate my youth. This is one of the first things I've put on my face that I actually saw do something that didn't require exfoliating acids. This was a balm... a blue balm in a little black jar that made my face feel and look like I hadn't been sick for a week.
So, good job, May Lindstrom. This product is honestly one of the best things I've tried in the many years I've been addicted to beauty. Well worth the money and definitely not the last thing I intend to try from the brand.102 found this helpful.Maggie K. Dec 04, 2015
This nourishing balm is packed with the purest, wild-harvested ingredients. It is a gorgeous soft blue that smells of peace and calm - total luxury.
If you have sensitive, dry, stressed skin, or if you travel by air frequently, this product is phenomenal.
It instantly melts upon contact with the skin into a luxurious, rich oil. It calms and deeply nourishes while providing an amazing protective layer over the skin.
I don't recommend using this under make up, but it is amazing at night or on no make up days.
There are potentially irritating ingredients (Shea butter, cacao, etc), but I've never had a reaction - and I often react to Shea. Each person is different, but this moisturizer is stunning, soothing, rich, and majorly luxurious.
Thanks for stocking May's products, Beautylish!83 found this helpful.Clint H. May 18, 2016
Complete Game Changer
Let me start by saying I know, $160 for skincare is a lot. I've eyed this product up for months now but never thought I'd be able to justify the price. With that being said, I don't think I'll ever be without this ever again.
I've recently started treating my acne with accutane, and if you know anything about accutane you know it turns you into a moisture-less dry flakey mess. That was the kicker for me to finally cave in and purchase this.
I just received my jar today, (I know, I know. Using something once and reviewing it sounds like complete bull) but after using this once, 7 hours ago, my skin has changed so dramatically I had to review it immediately. I've never since even 1/10th of a difference from any other product in my life. My skin 7 hours ago and for almost the past month straight has been terribly broken out, extremely red and irritated, puffy and incredibly uncomfortable. I felt relief the second I start massaging this into my skin. Instantly the tender areas felt soothed, any dryness was basically erased and overall my face just felt calmer.
Sounds too good to be true right? Well it gets better.
I just went and looked in the mirror, and VISABLY my skin has already improved. The texture is much smoother and softer. The inflammation from my breakouts has decreased. Some of the redness has calmed down. I'm not dry, not greasy, and still feel moisturized.
Keep in mind my skin has been so irritated and uncomfortable this past month it's literally kept me awake at night. I've tried so many things to give me even slight relief and gotten nothing. This product is hands down a game changer.
Trust me, I'm always skeptical and if I read something like this I'd think "yeah right, no way." But I'm truly 100% in disbelief over how amazing this product is.
If you're experiencing anything like what I've described and you're debating this purchase - do it. Do it right now. It's worth every penny.
My only problem now is picking which May product to spring for next. I wish there was a sampler option so I could try them all because of how pricey they are, but with how impressed I am with this I don't think I'd be let down by anything from this product line.72 found this helpful.Sasha U.

I really wanted to wait a little longer because I just got this about 2 or 3 days ago, so I really wanted to wait about a week at least to review but this is honestly incredible. I don't know what's in this stuff, but it works like magic. I dont think my skin has been this hydrated in years. They say you can wear this once or twice a week, but since my skin is SO bad right now, I've been wearing it daily. All my redness has calmed down, and my blemishes are disappearing. I don't know if it's a coincidence, but theres no denying that my skin looks so good. Even my mother commented on it and asked me what I'm using, especially under my eyes. I put it all over including under the eyes and my dark circles are fading. It looks like I don't have problematic skin at all! HA! This is honestly worth every dollar. You truly dont need alot. Because it's a balm, you just swipe lightly on the top and apply that to your face. You dont really need the smaaallleesstttt amount, you still need enough for your whole face (especially if you have a giant head/face like me) but even then I've only disturbed the top, at worst. You should keep in mind this is an oily substance, because it just melts down into an oil when you rub it on your skin. PERSONALLY I'm not a fan of the smell. It doesn't smell great to me but I expected that, because fragrances usually bother me in almost all beauty products. I'm actually very very sensitive to products with fragrance, but this is perfectly fine. It does smell a tiny bit medicinal to me, I can't really explain it. The only way I can really explain it is, there was a cream from Aveeno called "smart essentials nighttime moisture infusion" and it comes in a jar. The smell reminds me alot of that cream, BUT it's WAY less intense and less offensive. I think I'm traumatized though, because that cream gave me an unbelievable allergic reaction. BUT... nevermind that! LOL! Just be aware if you're sensitive to smells this might bother you. You do get used to it eventually, but you can still kinda smell it on your face. I wear it under my moisturizer for extra moisture, but you can just wear it on its own at night. It's not really heavy, but if you're wearing it under your moisturizer it will feel a little heavy. But again, my skin was REALLY bad. Eventually I'm going to stop wearing it every day, but not today ;)34 found this helpful.Natasha S. Jan 30, 2016
Wonderful for rosacea
I live in a cold country and while my rosacea is very mild it worsens every time I step outside and the wind hits my face. Blue cocoon has been such a wonderful help for the dots that appear on my cheeks, forehead and chin. It's soothing and makes my skin all smooth. It lasts for very long too, making the price worth it.
I highly recommend the blue cocoon. It's currently the only skin product I use except for my makeup remover.33 found this helpful.Tabitha B. Aug 06, 2016
THANK YOU MAY LINDSTROM!!!!
Allow yourself to splurge on this 1 product, you will not regret it. I can't even begin to say what a miracle this has been for my skin. Since it's summer I haven't been using a nighttime moisturizer after I apply the Blue Cocoon, just my Charlotte Tilbury eye cream. Let me tell you, I have found the perfect combination of skin care for my needs & I cannot describe how perfect my skin looks and feels when I wake up in the morning. I never realized how inflammation was affecting my skin until I used the BC! Not to mention the plumping & smoothing effects, I'm 37 so there are fine lines that the BC completely erases! Between the BC & the eye cream I wake up looking YEARS younger, this is the best skin of my life. I've read reviews in which people are using this in the morning as well and maybe I'll try that in the winter as I do get a chapped winter red-face from the cold wind & salty air. Since I am just using this at night for now I do notice that by the following evening my skin is asking for more Blue Cocoon lol. I can tell because if I have a little acne from my monthly or rough patches, it starts to show again. I've been using this for a bit more than a month now & I can say it will absolutely not make your skin break out. Maybe that's the result of it being 100% organic. Another bonus is the strength of the Blue Cocoon. Just a teensy amount- a little less than half the size of a pea- is all you need. This jar is definitely going to last me a year with just using it at night. I mean, would you spend $160 to have flawless skin for a year? I'm betting you would. At less than $14 a month? For sure. I'm using a tiny cosmetic spatula to scoop out the BC because I want to keep this product as pure as possible, I don't want any finger germs or water from washing my face in there. I treat the BC like its gold. This product needs to be applied to soaking wet skin to transform it to the oil so it absorbs into your skin. Before I wash my face I scoop out a little BC & set it aside so that as soon as I rinse my facewash off the Blue Cocoon can immediately be applied to my dripping wet face to get its' maximum benefits. It does have a slight eucalyptus-y/medicinal fragrance to it, but that's just fine with me. It smells like the nature its derived from. I'm so happy about the condition of my skin since I've started using this! I don't need to use foundation or concealer to cover imperfections when doing my makeup because the Blue Cocoon repairs all of my skins woes! I look so much younger because I feel having a face full of makeup does nothing but age you. You'll see beautiful results from this product almost immediately if you use it correctly. Now I just need a backup for my vault.29 found this helpful.JoAnn O. Jan 12, 2016
LUXURIOUS, NOURISHING, AMAZING!
Rarely do I feel that any products are worth my review. I, like so many older women, have easily 10 jars of moisturizers, bottles of serums, etc. and have tried everything from the drugstore favorites to the high end. May Lindstrom's Blue Cocoon is the most deeply moisturizing and wonderfully luxurious product I have ever tried. Yes it is pricey, but sometimes you get what you pay for. It is like a cocoon, wrapping your skin in an aromatic silky coat of protection. Let this product transform your skin, just like a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly!28 found this helpful.Belinda D. Mar 15, 2017
A price jump already?
I was cautious at the very least to purchase such an incredibly high priced jar (beautiful as said jar may be) full of natural organic ingredients I may have been able to formulate myself. Then I took the plunge due to all of the incredibly outstanding reviews. Imagine my surprise when checking tracking and it said the package had arrived yet I'd not received it! I was just about in panic at the thought of such a pricey loss but the Beautylish customer service was swift in helping me track what had happened and in replacing my order promptly...thank you Beautylish! As most before me have stated this was incredible after the first use and I am hooked!!! I use every evening as a last step in my quite intricate beauty regime and wake with beautifully refreshed, plump, radiant skin. This is most definitely a keeper but I am concerned that May Lindstrom has jacked her prices on all of her prices by more than 10% after such a short period. There is no doubt this beautiful woman is talented and I understand she crafts all of her own products but it still seems a bit greedy to me. I am sorry if this offends anyone but it is my opinion and I hold firm to it.26 found this helpful.lauren g. Feb 25, 2016
Growing up I was one to always have the oily, sensitive acne prone skin. I had always stayed away from any product with "oil" in it.....until now...I am using glycolic acid with a combination of retinol In the evening. I had no idea how dry my skin was going to get, let alone flaky...so I went out on a limb and invested in the blue cocoon after trying other hydrating products that were just not cutting it. The blue cocoon is truly healing my skin in a way no other products have been able to to..my dry retinol skin is now balanced with blue cocoons oil. It has been calming,soothing,healing like no product I have ever tried..IF anyone is on the fence about this product even if you are concerned at the price...it truly is an investment in your skin and once you see the results you will never want to be without this amazing product! Love love love !21 found this helpful.
