Indie Beauty Shop is a new Canadian online store specializing in natural cosmetics and personal care products from independent brands. I love supporting smaller companies and I think it's great to be able to purchase a curated selection of indie brands all in the same place. With a focus on safe, clean and performance driven products, everything on the site is free of the regular nasties - parabens, phthalates, silicones, and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) - and each product page is clearly labelled to indicate any other criteria the product meets: vegan, cruelty free, gluten free, Canadian, and/or organic.
I've been trying out a few things from three of the lines Indie Beauty Shop carries. Let's jump right into the products!
NorthMan Grooming Co.
The Shaving Cream* ($13.95) has a rich and creamy feel that's been a big hit too. Especially in the winter, my skin can dry out a lot after shaving, but I haven't had any issues while I've been using this cream. It washes off completely clean, but also manages to leave my skin feeling soft, soothed and moisturized.
Both of these products are unscented and I could see them working well for both men and women.
Paz and Lourdes
I also received the Paz and Lourdes Mascara/Eye Lash Gloss* ($14.95), but since I don't like having multiple mascaras open at once, I haven't tried it yet. It also contains phenoxyethanol, so I'm a little on the fence. I'll definitely update you guys if/when I try it!
Terra Tribe has a small capsule collection that also includes a cream cleanser, three face oils, and two dry shampoos.
The Bottom Line
Indie Beauty Shop has a good lineup of products, and I especially appreciate that they're from brands I haven't seen anywhere else. From the products I tried, I definitely think the quality is there and everything is very affordably priced too. I'm looking forward to seeing the store grow in the future - I can't wait to see what comes next for this shop!
