The Pendulum Potion

The newly introduced Pendulum Potion cleansing oil is the first product in May Lindstrom’s line that did not completely shake up my beauty routine.

That does not mean I don’t love it, I do. But after pampering my face with clays and spices, mud puddings and a face balm that is blue, rather than an adventure, a simple cleansing oil feels very natural and basic.

I wrote about oil cleansing in the summer and the method suggested for Pendulum Potion is pretty much the same.

After shaking bottle, distribute 4-6 pumps of oil into palms and massage onto dry face and neck. Wet your hands with warm water and continue massaging for a minute or two. You will feel your skin warming up and softening.

Wet a clean face towel with hot tap water, wring extra water out and cover your face and neck with the towel for a mini steam. Hold for a moment, then wipe your face gently with the damp towel.

Rinse the towel again with hot water, wring, hold on face, wipe and repeat for a couple of times until skin is soft and cleansed. Follow with toner and moisturizer if you like.

If I am wearing makeup, I like to do the first wiping with a cotton pad, then add a little more oil and go through the steam ritual.
