May Lindstrom’s The Clean Dirt
May Lindstrom’s The Clean Dirt smells like autumn in a bottle with hints of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla bean and raw cacao. It gently stimulates and exfoliates my skin leaving it soft and smooth. Plus, I love that I can also mix this powdery blend with coconut oil and/or honey for additional benefits.
Pros: great for all skin types, exfoliating, lifts impurities, healing, increases blood flow, stimulating, leaves skin smooth and soft, warm spicy scent, certified organic and fair trade ingredients
Cons: can be a little messy and discolors white or light washcloths during use
Performance: May Lindstrom’s The Clean Dirt gently lifts impurities from the face without causing agitation or irritation. It’s healing, rejuvenating, stimulating and exfoliating while helping to increase blood flow and smooth skin.
Summary: May Lindstrom’s The Clean Dirt is an exfoliating blend of cleansing clays, warming spices and healing salts that comes in powder form and is activated with water. It can also be used with coconut oil and/or pure raw honey. Coined “daily micro-dermabrasion” and ”magic dust,” The Clean Dirt makes for a fantastic natural facial scrub.
How I Use May Lindstrom’s The Clean Dirt: Pour a teaspoon of powder formula into palm, slowly add drops of water to activate, and blend to a soft mousse consistency. Massage into skin, avoiding eye area. Expect a slightly hot and tingling sensation. Rinse and pat dry skin. I use The Clean Dirt to exfoliate 2-3 x’s per week and alternate it using water, coconut oil and/or honey to activate it.
