Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil | Beauty Review

I received a sample of the Indie Lee Squalane Oil in the Autumn/Winter beauty box from abeautifulworld and couldn’t wait to try it out. I’ve seen it reviewed on a few beauty blogs and was intrigued to find out what it was like. Ana from Ana Goes Green also sent me a couple of samples which was so lovely of her – thank you Ana!

Indie Lee is a brand from New York that is exclusively available from A Beautiful World. The facial oil unbelievably contains only ONE ingredient – squalane, which is derived from olives. Squalane is present in our own skin structure but the production of it actually slows down in our mid twenties to thirties! Luckily for me I have a few years yet ;).

The oil promotes skin elasticity, diminishes age spots and boosts cell regeneration and oxygenation. It claims to leave your complexion feeling soft & nourished and never greasy. A claim I couldn’t agree more with! The oil sinks into my skin so quickly and my skin looks dewy & radiant and feels soft & smooth. It’s also a great base for my foundation. I have oily skin and this has been working a treat with my skin. It has calmed down my spots and I have definitely noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin – infact I would probably go as far as saying my skin has never looked better. Obviously I have been using other products too such as cleansers and the great konjac sponges but I think this is definitely a main factor in my good skin these days!

It is clear and completely odourless. It comes in a pump bottle which is great as it distributes just the right amount of product! I usually use about 1-2 pumps. Also I’ve found with this that it doesn’t make my fringe greasy like some other oils do which is perfect as I can put it on without worrying about my hair looking like it needs a wash!

I have just bought myself a gift box from A Beautiful World with a full size of this in & I have my eye on the Blemish Lotion as well so you will definitely see more Indie Lee products on this blog soon!

It costs ยฃ22.00 and you can buy it exclusively from abeautifulworld in the UK.

Have you tried this? What do you think?

    Really nice review! I did not know this product, now I'm tempted to give it a try. I also have oily skin, so certain oils do not work on my skin, but this one looks interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ x Liz

    This sounds amazing! I only use one product on my skin at the minute, and that's my oil cleansing balm. But as it's getting colder I could do with something in the evenings to just add a bit more moisture. So thankful I was having a good read through your blog and found this ๐Ÿ™‚ The oil sounds perfect, and with just one ingredient, you can't really go wrong ๐Ÿ™‚ x
