With a reputation for luxuriously simplistic skincare and body products, Indie Lee is a name you can trust for high-quality, natural ingredients and efficacy. The brand’s minimalist, conscious approach to skincare, health, and life is refreshing in an all too busy, cluttered world.
The cult-favorite skincare brand was created by Indie Lee after surviving a life-threatening brain tumor, in which she learned environmental toxins had caused it. Lee woke up on Earth Day in 2009 with a new perspective on life and the passion to build a chic and eco-friendly collection of quality, healthy skincare products.
I was fortunate to test out three of Indie Lee’s most popular products and truthfully, none of them disappointed. While the colorful, chic packaging definitely caught my eye, the simple yet highly effective natural ingredients truly impressed me. The majority of products in the collection are comprised of uncomplicated ingredient lists, all formulated with natural, eco-friendly ingredients that perform exquisitely on the skin.
Vanilla Citrus Moisturizing Oil*: The irresistible fragrance of vanilla and sweet orange make it difficult not to want to lick this off the skin! Thankfully, my skin happily drinks this body oil up with its quickly-absorbing, deeply hydrating properties. Applying the Moisturizing Oil directly after a shower, results in incredibly smooth, supple, and glowing skin. Not to mention how delicious you will smell! This body oil retains moisture on my skin so I’m never left feeling dry or itchy throughout the day. It also never feels too greasy or heavy on my skin due to its quick absorbing quality. For a high-end beauty brand, the price of this body oil is not too insane and the fact that you get 4 oz is also pretty wonderful. Finding a luxurious natural body oil with an outstanding natural formula while also providing truly lasting hydration and nourishment can be a rare find, yet Indie Lee’s no-frills formula reigns supreme in this skincare category. $36, 4oz.
Ingredients: SIMMONDSIA CHINESIS (JOJOBA) OIL, PRUNUS ARMENIACA (APRICOT) OIL, VANILLA PLANIFOLIA (VANILLA) AND CITRBUS AURANTIUM SINENSIS (SWEET ORANGE). PARABEN FREE, PHTALATE FREE, SULFATE FREE, ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE FREE, NO ANIMAL TESTING.
Rosehip Cleanser*: The product that seems to be the all-around favorite among Indie Lee’s collection is the Rosehip Cleanser. This product has the consistency of a gel-like cleanser when applied, making it both a very soothing and gentle product on the skin. The lightweight texture also lathers nicely, providing a satisfyingly deep cleanse without feeling too drying or harsh. It does not strip the skin of necessary nourishment but rather helps to retain moisture. My skin always feels very soft and nourished when I use this cleanser and oh-so-fresh. The natural light rose scent is also very refreshing and delightful. The use of antioxidant-rich rosehip oil not only nourishes skin but specifically works well to soothe and treat sensitive skin like mine. It can also be used to remove makeup and treat redness or rosacea. The gentle, lightweight formula and it’s gel-like consistency also makes it a good product to use on cleansing brushes like a Clarisonic or FOREO tool. As a cleanser that fulfills all the qualities of a gentle, moisturizing, deep cleansing product that can be used year-round, the Rosehip Cleanser is something I’d highly recommend anyone try. $32, 4oz.
Ingredients: PURIFIED WATER (AQUA), SODIUM OLIVATE, GLYCERIN, ROSA RUBIGINOSA SEED OIL, CHONDRUS CRISPUS, ERIOBOTRYA JAPONICA EXTRACT. PARABEN FREE, PHTALATE FREE, SULFATE FREE, ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE FREE, NO ANIMAL TESTING.
Blemish Stick*: The Blemish Stick is an easy and effective way to treat all those pesky acne spots plaguing your skin. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly this product worked at minimizing blemishes! In my opinion, this formula is a bit more potent compared to other natural acne spot treatments I have used, so beware if you have extra sensitive skin or a low tolerance for spot treatments. In light of this, I personally use this purely as a spot treatment and on particularly stubborn or large blemishes because I find the effects are very harsh on my skin. It’s also helpful to note that this is recommended to use on affected areas during the day. The Blemish Stick’s powerful formula rids the skin of blemishes almost immediately, I would say my spots shrink immediately within only 2 days whenever I use this product. The convenient, mess-free packaging and easy to use wand applicator is also a plus, especially in learning to not over-apply the treatment.
Unfortunately, I have also noticed the doe-foot applicator has worn down significantly after using this product multiple times and is looking quite shabby. Anyone else have that problem? Overall, this is definitely a top-notch, powerful natural spot treatment alternative, especially if you are used to more conventional treatments. $28, .35oz.
Ingredients: ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, PURIFIED WATER, ZINC SULPHATE, SALICYLIC ACID, GLYCOLIC ACID, CAMPHOR, WITCH HAZEL, CELLULOSE GUM, MENTHOL. PARABEN FREE, PHTALATE FREE, SULFATE FREE, ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE FREE, NO ANIMAL TESTING.
Simply put: skincare products from cult-favorite brand, Indie Lee are aesthetically appealing to any minimalist’s eye, while also irresistibly pleasing to natural ingredient-lovers everywhere. The quality of these natural skincare products rightfully illustrates fashionable, effective, eco-conscious natural luxury skincare that is a class of its own.
