22nd April 2014 was Earth Day and the beautiful Indie Lee was running a social media competition to win a yearlong supply of Indie’s beauty products up to $1,000 value! Amazing huh?
I entered the competition and posted a few photos and mantras of what is #simplysecondnature to me and how I live my life naturally! Since going “green” I have made a conscious effort in all ways of life to live more naturally, not only just with my beauty products but looking after myself from the inside out through what I put into my body and how I look after not only my body but also the environment.
I was over the moon to wake up on 23rd April to a tweet from Indie saying that she had chosen me as the winner! I could not believe it; I was so happy I’ve never got out of bed so quickly in my life! I ran downstairs to tell my sister & step-dad and was just completely ecstatic! I absolutely love Indie’s Squalane Facial Oil and a few more of her products were on my wishlist so winning $1,000 worth of Indie’s products was just unbelievable and so generous from Indie herself. I have four $250 vouchers to use so I can spread out my buying throughout the year to keep me stocked up all year long! How awesome is that?!
So I thought I would show you what I chose to buy with my first $250 voucher. I am pretty stacked up on beauty products at the minute so I didn’t use them all at once. I think next time I order I’ll get it sent to some family in the US though that my sisters are visiting in October and ask her to bring it all back because I did get charged pesky customs charges..boo you Royal Mail!!
Paul absolutely loves my Squalane Oil (he used 5 pumps of it once….almost the end of our relationship LOL) so I ordered him one of those and I did order one for Mia but I’ve just ran out of mine so I’ve kept this one & I’ll order her another one next time!
The Calendula Eye Balm is the product I was most excited about as I have been trying to battle these dark circles for years now and they’re just not getting any lighter! I was going to buy it in New York but I spent all my money ha! Ria from Naturia Beauty did a review on this a couple of months back and the difference was incredible so I’m really excited to try this! I’ve used it a couple of nights in a row now and it’s lovely and soothing under the eyes so I’m eager to see how well this helps with my unwanted dark circles!
I also bought the Vanilla Citrus Moisturising Oil because the reviews made it sound so lovely and it’s a multi-purpose oil so you can use it on your body or face and some reviews said it worked well to tame fly-away hairs! I used this straight away and it just smells soooo good. It’s not overpowering or really that strongly scented but its just enough and it moisturises like a dream.
I love this flyer that came with the parcel too – so true! I’m going to put this up in my bedroom!
Thank you so much again Indie & everybody who works with Indie. I still cannot believe I won and I’m so incredibly grateful that I have this chance to try out all of your products.
