Indeed Laboratories Exfoliator and C24

Finding balance between old and new is a difficult task in skincare. With so many new releases, it can be rather difficult to stay with what is tried and true. But never mind any of that; here are a few dear favourites and recent additions.

Indeed Laboratories Exfoliator

Long have I been a critic of physical exfoliants; today I can add at least one to the list of acceptables. With a few drops of water, this powder becomes a gentle foam. Bamboo and rice bran extracts—the latter high in acne- and wrinkle-fighting silica—gently exfoliate physically, whilst red algae strengthens skin’s ability to retain moisture; hyaluronic acid hydrates and stimulates the production of skin-plumping collagen. Pineapple enzymes act as an AHA exfoliant to gently clear skin of dead skin cells.
Immediately skin feels smoother and appears more luminous. The effects seem to last for a week, though this is gentle enough to use several times a week. I used it twice weekly and will continue to do so. A truly simple yet brilliant product.

Indeed Laboratories Vitamin C24

A new release from Indeed Laboratories, Vitamin C24 is a serum-cream hybrid formulated with 22% vitamin C and 2% hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C aids in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin elasticity, and hydrates. As an antioxidant, vitamin C aids in the defence against free radical, sun damage, and pollution. Whilst not advertised as such, vitamin C can aid in the calming of acne as free radical damage is often associated with a greater frequency and severity of blemishes; reducing free radical damage thus reduces inflammation, ergo visible redness and sensitivity. Hyaluronic acid aids in the hydrating and plumping of the skin.
New to topical vitamin C treatments, I was unsure what to expect and quite frankly a tad sceptical. To my surprise, I cannot see a routine without this product. Applying it twice daily after a hydrating serum, my skin feels healthy. It looks less red, it feels less sensitive, and it appears more radiant. I even left the house having only applied this and Hylamide HA Blur; no colour correcting required. This hydrates my normal skin well enough that—when paired with a hydrating serum like Hylamide Sensitive Fix or, my next conquest, Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron—this is all that is necessary to keep my skin balanced.
I highly recommend this product to those wanting preventative anti-aging. This will not return matured, damaged skin to what it once was; but start in your early 20s with something like this, and your skin will be plenty healthy in your golden years. I also like this for those with blemishes, as this paired with a topical retinol/retinoid would do a world of good.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

An old favourite, and one that I went into great detail here in its review, this is such a nice treat to return to. I currently use it as a morning cleanser, swapping in Boscia Black Cleanser in the evening to do a bit more for my skin without throwing it out of balance. The smell—of rosewater and cucumber—is worth the purchase alone.
You can find it at Sephora.

  1. So far I've only tried their Nanoblur, mainly because Indeed Labs is really hard to get your hands on from Europe. I love the idea of preventative anti-aging! It's so much easier to prevent than treat.


  2. I haven't tried Nanoblur yet—I really like the Hylamide HA Blur and hear that it is rather similar (and likely easy to get in Europe as they ship worldwide). How did you like it? As do I, especially when it's such an easy product to apply and relatively affordable compared to the *insanely* expensive anti-aging products out there that people reach to only when it's too late.
