Customer Reviews

  • LOVE this

    Milena March 20, 2020

    I use this oil cleanser as a BODY OIL. I love the smell so much and it leaves my skin supple, moisturized, and CLEAR. It has this rich beautiful smell- it’s earthy and fullbodied and citrusy and spicy. LOVE IT!

  • Not for me

    C Q. May 15, 2019

    The smell of this oil cleanser haunts me. It is so powerful and frankly off-putting. After I applied it to my face I had to wash my face two more times with a regular cleanser and the scent was STILL lingering. Smells like something is rotting. Also, this oil cleanser leaves a thick layer on your skin and does not rinse off easily or take makeup off easily like other oil cleansers I’ve tried. Would not recommend, there are literally millions of better oil cleansers out there for a third of the price of this stuff. I’ve never written a review for anything, that’s how strongly I felt about this 🙁

    I was scared to change over to an oil cleanser because I was afraid my skin would feel dirty and possibly make me break out but this has transform my skin. It has helped clear up my skin and make it super soft

  • Face as soft as butter

    Tiffany B. August 28, 2018

    This oil cleanser will not clog your pores and even has an ingredient (tamanu) to help keep pores clean. When you do the ritual (apply the oil, put a warm towel over your face and breathe deeply), your skin feels as soft as butter. It’s really the ultimate cleansing experience.

  • An amazing cleanser for dry skin with hormonal breakouts!

    Lauren B. August 28, 2018

    This is my favorite cleanser of all time. I have very dry skin, and I also am prone to clogged pores and hormonal breakouts. First off, the smell is heavenly. It takes my nightly skincare ritual to the next level. It leaves my skin feeling clean and nourished while also helping to clear up any breakout. If I have any breakouts before going to sleep they are gone in the morning. Make sure you use a warm cloth to remove for the best results.

    Susan N. August 01, 2018

    Love the smell and feel of this product. It cleanses and hydrates at the same time. I enjoy using a hot steamy towel after applying the product for a more spa-like treatment. My skin loves this product and it shows. I am so happy with what May Lindstrom products have done for me and my skin!

  • Silky smooth cleanser

    Emma H. March 01, 2018

    I have been using my May Windstorm Pendulum Potion for about a week now and I can tell this is going to be become a favorite staple. It has this amazing sort of musky natural smell, and its oil based so it glides into skin. Its one of those holy grail products that really does clean off makeup and your face, yet still leaves you soft and hydrated. This is a great product for combination, dry, or sensitive skin, but may not be the best for oily skin. I look forward to exploring more of this May Windstorm line! WOW!
