Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil | Beauty Review

13 Nov 2013

I received a sample of this in the Autumn/Winter beauty box from A Beautiful World 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 £22.00 and you can buy it exclusively from A Beautiful World in the UK.

Have you tried this? What do you think?

  3. 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 :) x Liz

  8. 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 :) The oil sounds perfect, and with just one ingredient, you can't really go wrong :) x
