I love finding indie brands for just about everything, but where I don’t usually expect to find indie beauty brands is Amazon! While a little snooping around for something new, something I haven’t seen spammed all over instagram, I surprisingly landed on Amazon. Not only did I land on Amazon, the first image to grab my attention was a banner saying “Indie Beauty”. and of course I clicked and clicked quickly.
Oh the goodies I found, so let me chat about my favorites.
With my desire to lessen my environmental impact and my love for all scrubs of every kind, I was disappointed to out most scrubs contain micro plastics. Thus a search for plastic free scrubs ensued. How happy I was to discover this little hidden gem! Bee Scrubbed Volcanic Micro-Polish Pumice replaces micro bead plastics with volcanic ash and pumice stone, which makes so much sense! This scrub also delivers a powerful punch of omegas, pineapple enzymes, argon oil and tea tree oil (to name a few). Perfect for scrubbing away dry skin and preventing acne and ingrown hairs. A+++++!
If you have sensitive skin like myself, inflammation can be a real pest. I am always on the look out for products to help reduce irritation and redness. This pink clay is fantastic at balancing and calming your angry skin. My favorite routine is to use this the night before a day where I don’t have to leave the house or apply make up, giving my skin a chance to really soak up the benefits. Also available in Activated Charcoal and Turmeric & Cranberry Seed.

Step up your natural skincare game with this serum!
