It all started when Indie Lee had a brain tumour removed.
When she learned that environmental toxins may have been the culprit, she set it out devoting herself to a healthier lifestyle. And that led her to creating Indie Lee - All Natural Beauty Products.
The lesson she learned from her experience was that "what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it," and sagely notes, "Chances are, if you can't pronounce the ingredient, it isn't good for you."
So she created a line of products that smell and feel incredible and don't contain any petroleum, talc, petrochemicals, parabens, genetically modified ingredients, chemical fragrances and are never animal tested. You just can't help but smile by using them!
I start with The Body Scrub (pictured above), as it's winter and my skin needs a good sloughing at least once a week. Using just coconut and jojoba oils mixed with sugar, my skin gets gently renewed while lemon balm, lemongrass and vanilla fill the bathroom with a heady, happy scent. These essential oils not only deliver great aromatherapy, they also moisturize your skin, so you are left with only smooth, soft limbs. So smooth in fact that you might just be inspired to pull out those sleeveless tops and short, short dresses from the back of the closet!
To keep your skin feeling so soft, I recommend 2 things:
1. The Body Balm - For all of those rough-around-the-edges areas - knees, elbows, heels and wherever else you require a little extra TLC. This lush balm made with avocado and jojoba oils, beeswax and a whack of fantastic essential oils oozes softness and wafts of lavender over your bedraggled skin. Just watch as your rough parts suddenly become all plump and soft. Warning: may lead to extreme skin contact with others.
2. Lavender Moisturizing Oil - It's not until these last few years that I've come around to using oils on my skin. I have never liked feeling greasy, but it's funny - good quality oils like this one aren't greasy in the least. In fact, they are so moisturizing, you'll wonder why you've been using lotions all these years. And the lavender scent is so calming that slathering this on right after my shower in the morning has become my favourite way to start the day.
I am so sorry that Indie had to go through such a traumatic experience, but I am thankful that it brought her to this. Because it is clearly what she is meant to do, as she does it so well, with such care and grace.
Shop Indie Lee now and know that you're doing a good thing - for you, for your health and for the environment.
