Natural Skin Care Review: Indie Lee

Natural Skin Care Review: Indie Lee

Rosehip Cleanser, COQ-10 Toner, Brightening Cleanser

The all natural brand Indie Lee was called into life in 2009 after its founder Indie recovered from a life-threatening brain tumor. She had a great thought behind creating her skin care line: “We all need to go back to basics”.

At the beginning of this year I drastically started to change my eating habits and cut out all animal products of my diet. The main reason why I wanted to create a change was basically my food intolerance and skin situation. I am lactose intolerant for a long time already and last year I also reacted somewhat allergic to certain kind of fruits (watermelon, kiwi, pear, just to name a few) and eggs (both yolk and egg white). Also, my skin was in a horrible condition due to hormonal imbalance. Meat was never really my biggest favorite, neither was fish or chicken so I gave up eating all the meat as well. But, was it all worth it? After all this weeks I say yes and it is probably the best decision I have made in a very long time. My skin cleared up after just one week, the combination of natural food and great skin care products made it glow again and I’ve never felt more energetic and better in my entire body before. The change was huge, physically and mentally.

After changing everything I put in my body I thought it would be interesting to see if I could change something about what I put on my skin as well. I ordered three products from Indie Lee, the Rosehip Cleanser, COQ-10 Toner and Brightening Cleanser since I always wanted to get my hands on these.

Rosehip Cleanser

Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Olivate (Fatty Acid from Olive), Glycerin, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil, Chondrus Crispus, Eriobotrya Japonica Extract

  • paraben free, phthalate free, sulfate free, artificial fragrance free, no animal testing, 118,3ml/4.0fl.oz, 39,99€

Can you believe it, only 6 ingredients!? The Rosehip Cleanser is enriched with Vitamin A, E and K and high in antioxidants. It takes off all your make up in just one wipe, including mascara or lipstick. The cleaning performance is fantastic but at the same time super gentle. My skin shows no redness nor does it feel dry which means its perfect for sensitive skin. The scent is the best in my opinion, just imagine a big bouquet of fresh roses. By the way, it can also be used as a brush cleanser. I am definitely going to repurchase this one – I highly, highly recommend it!

COQ-10 Toner

Ingredients: Purified water (aqua), Aloe Barbadensis, Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic Acid, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile), Salvia Officinalis (Sage), Carica Papaya Leaf Extract, Cucums Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Flower Oil, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin

  • paraben free, phthalate free, sulfate free, artificial fragrance free, no animal testing, 118,3ml/4.0fl.oz, 39,99€

The COQ-10 Toner hydrates the skin whilst balancing it out and prevents the skin from shining throughout the day. It is perfect for normal to dry skin, but it also works for my oily skin. I don’t have the feeling that my skin gets more oily while using this, it is just oily as usual. It leaves the skin soft, clean and thank god it doesn’t contain alcohol (the root of all evil, at least when it comes to your skin). You should never say never, but I will probably never ever buy an alcohol toner again and keep repurchasing this toner instead.

Brightening Cleanser

Ingredients: Purified Water, Decyl Glucoside (Veg. Oils & Sugar), Disodium Coco-Glucoside Citrate, Coco Glucoside Oleaste (Coconut and Sunflower Oil), Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein*, Xanthan Gum, Fragaria Chiloensis Seed Oil (a blend of natural essential oils), Lycopene (tomato), Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin.
*Note: contains gluten

  • paraben free, phthalate free, sulfate free, artificial fragrance free, no animal testing, 118,3ml/4.0fl.oz, 39,99€

Hmm, my beloved Brightening Cleanser. Love at first sight. Wheat protein and lycopene from tomatoes leave the skin soft and glowy. To be honest, I didn’t expect such a good cleansing result from an all natural product. It is actually a multipurpose product since you can use it as an exfoliating mask as well. The Rosehip cleanser smells like heaven, but the Brightening Cleanser smells even better. Perfect for every skin type and skin condition. If your skin is dull and you need an extra radiant complexion you definitely need the Brightening Toner in your life.

All products come in a lovely glass bottle and a dispenser so no product gets wasted. I try to add more and more green beauty products to my assortment in the future and I will also extend my Indie Lee collection because I am totally convinced.
