Empty Bottle Review: Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

EBR Indie Lee Main

I am NOT a morning person. So when I find something to look forward to at 7 am, that’s something. My favorite morning product currently the Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser, a product I tend to repurchase again and again.

The first thing that got me about the Brightening Cleanser was the smell. I loved the fresh, sweet smell from the strawberry seed oil in the formula. Like, worried I had Pica loved it. The scent helps to wake me up in the morning and I can safely report I haven’t eaten it.

Next up, this product has two uses. You can apply the cleanser to wet skin and start lathering right away for your normal 30 to 60-second wash or you can use Brightening Cleanser as a mask. Sometimes I’ll apply a thin layer to my dry skin before hopping in the shower, giving it 5 minutes to work it’s magic before I rinse it off.

The strawberry seed oil is combined with tomato extract and hydrolyzed wheat protein and coconut. This formula provides antioxidants like vitamin C and lycopene to help even the complexion. I find it gives my skin a gentle morning cleanse without stripping any of my natural moisture (god knows my pores make enough of it) and makes me look more awake. Every step of my routine applies smoothly afterwards and I arrive to work looking like I got more sleep than I probably did.

I adore this natural cleanser so much I made sure to purchase a travel size before our recent vacation to make sure I didn’t have to go two weeks without it.

If you’re in need of a morning pick me up, I highly recommend the Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser to help you start your day. It reminds me of that old school Strawberry Shortcake toy smell and there’s nothing wrong with that.

  1. I love this! But if my lips have been sensitive to strawberries lately I wonder how this would work on my face. Thank you!
