Thought I’d go through my empties by category and because I can’t be bothered always holding onto the empty containers these are photos I previously took for Instagram when I was sharing my current stash. I have already done a blog post on May Lindstrom Skin’s entire line which you can find in the Skincare category .
I will just be giving a brief overview of each , If you would like to know more please don’t hesitate to ask .
Product– Infiore Beauty – Treate Cleansing Emulsion
Type – Milk Cleanser
Price– $102 aud for 125ml
Recommended Use– 2-5 pumps massaged gently into skin and removed with warm and cool water or with a warm washcloth.
How I Use– Exactly as directed , I prefer to use as a morning or 2nd cleanse in the evening.
Smell– Like a bouquet of summer flowers .
Texture– Light milky feeling.
Thoughts – This is just incredibly beautiful and gentle. Also if you prefer to not use washcloths its extremely effective at breaking down oil, so if you’re a fan of oil cleansers then this easily breaks it down and allows you to rinse with alternating warm and cold water to remove. I love the feeling of this on my skin and once removed my skin feels hydrated and plumped ready to absorb the following products.
Repurchase – Definitely !!!!

My skin feels thoroughly clean yet not stripped this leaves my skin feeling great and ready to absorb the next steps. Will only use a morning cleanse or 2nd cleanse in the evening. Do not recommend if you have sensitive or reactive skin.

Smell– Faintly of olives and cucumber. I find it to be a very comforting scent.
Texture– Beautiful buttery texture
Thoughts – This really piqued my interest in balm cleansers and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Whilst not a lot of bells and whistles its actually the simplicity of this that I loved, I didn’t have to worry about any possible irritation and my eyes were not irritated either which is key with make up removal .
Repurchase – Yes!!!!

Price– $72 aud for 100 g
Recommended Use– Use a small amount with dry hands on dry skin . Massage to remove makeup , spf. Remove with a washcloth.
How I Use– As directed.
Smell– Delicious kind of like chocolate .
Texture– Slightly granular feeling, not scratchy at all .
Thoughts – It was not love at first use. I began by using in the mornings and it felt almost like a chore. Then I began using as a makeup remover in the night and it really came into its own. I found it removed every last scrap of product and left my skin feeling clean and soft. Definitely happy I did that as I grew to really appreciate it.
Repurchase – I would as a make up remover , Most products specifically for removing makeup are a little to joyless for me. I enjoy a sensory experience when cleansing and this definitely fits the bill.
