Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil.

 I think the sample of Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil was the product I was most excited to receive in the ABW Autumn/Winter sampler box. Now that I have finished my sample I thought I would share my thoughts.
Indie Lee products consistently get good reviews from other bloggers. Made simply with squalane derived from olives and nothing else, this is the ultimate minimalist product. The Squalane Facial Oil claims to improve skin elasticity, even skin tone and boost cell regeneration. I had high hopes for this.
My little sample has lasted me almost 3 weeks of daily use, so I cant make any comments about cell regeneration. I have to say in all honesty I am a little sceptical about such claims, as how an earth would you be able to tell? What would you measure it against? Joking aside, what I can say is that this is a very good oil indeed.
The Squalane Facial Oil is odourless, and has a lovely silky texture. It needs only be used very sparingly, one to two drops really is all that is needed. Used like this, it gives such a healthy glow to the skin, use too much and it does make the skin look like shine city. It absorbs very quickly and makes a great base for make up. I like to use one drop in the morning and two drops at night.
What I want from my skincare, is something that perks my skin up, that makes it look brighter and delivers enough moisture. I also want something that I can afford to buy regularly. I think that the Squalane Facial oil delivers on all these points. The full size is definitely on my wish list.


  1. I've always wanted to try this, it seems like it is a bit of a wonder oil.

  2. I quite agree about some skincare claims - it's impossible to argue for or against things like cell turnover as you can't realistically measure. And though we know antioxidants protect from free radical damage (volumes of research) by how much we simply can't measure either. This oil does sound lovely though and again I agree, we want skincare to primarily make our skin glow, look even toned, plump if poss and generally sing. Tx

  3. This has been on my wish list for a long time. I was thrilled to be sent it for review recently. I agree with it giving a healthy glow, I'm loving it!
