Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil
I received a sample of Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil in my March Beauty Army kit. Prior to choosing this oil, I had never heard of it before but I have heard amazing things about Indie Lee's products. Due to Birchbox smothering me with facial oils that always left my skin greasy and breaking out, I was a little scared to try out Indie Lee's facial oil. Well, I'm definitely glad I finally gave this sampling a try, it's actually really awesome! It applies very smooth, the scent is clean and fresh, the oil soaks into my (mildly dry) skin and does not leave a greasy feel behind. It does leave my skin a bit shinier than it would be naturally, but it's not an unflattering shine - it's more like that clean and youthful shine that we all strive to achieve. The facial oil keeps my face hydrated all day, but by night fall I do feel my face begin to dry out some. By the time I get around to my nighttime skincare routine, I definitely need to apply more to get me through the night, otherwise I awaken with dry, slightly flaky skin.
What is Squalane oil? Indie Lee posted some very helpful information on her blog, so I'll link that HERE so you can read up on it. Long story short, it's good for you and saves animals ;)
