May Lindstrom

May Lindstrom relies upon her training as a chef, her careful study of skin-healing ingredients, and her love of indulgence to handcraft gorgeous & transformative skincare treats. These remarkable formulas can be mixed for custom treatments that encourage you to create your own skincare rituals: rituals that make you aware of the sensation created by your products, cognizant of the importance of self-care, and — simply — happy. Skincare has never been so much fun. We’re delighted to be the sole San Francisco retailer for this beautiful brand from Los Angeles.

"The BioRecept Total Lift Eclat serum works wonders on me. I may have described the effect to someone as 'It's like magical unicorns were nuzzling pixie dust into my face overnight.'"

Rae

"I've been using it for a month as a moisturizer/serum in one and it's fantastic. My skin is smooth, soft, and bright — no dryness at all. I'm loving it!"

Nora

"I hadn't gotten a good night's sleep in over two weeks and was at my wits' end. I kept waking up after 4-5 hours and unable to get back to sleep. Last night I took the sleep tonic and stress tonic with water before bed. I slept deeply and awoke feeling refreshed and full of energy!"

Andrew

"The difference in my skin from April 2018 to now must be seen to be believed. Having never used oil on my face I wasn't sure what to expect with Dara's Oil, but I wouldn't return to a cream moisturizer for anything. This oil is light, penetrating, and not greasy."

Jill

“I'm beyond hooked on Boucleme! It's far superior to anything I've used before. I went out with friends the first night after using it and they asked what I had done differently with my hair! Said it looked amazing.”

Katie

"I have tried so many concealers (I'm 62), and this one is amazing. It doesn't sit in fine lines like most do, even my previous $300 concealer. I have real dark circles under my eyes, and now they are not noticeable. My eyes are less puffy, too!"

Inside Our Brands Letters from Dara

The story behind Dara's Oil

One of our founder's favorite products was whipped up specifically for her sensitive complexion by Marie Veronique herself. Marie tucked “Dara’s Oil” into our shipments from her lab from time to time, to be discovered with a squeal of delight.
