I cannot wait to spend my weekend relaxing with a latte or five!
I've been doing much research about skincare and different products to use and I came across a brand called Mad Hippie. It's so quirky that I had to look at their range of products and what the ingredients consisted of.
Their company was founded in Maine, and recently expanded to Austin, TX. Their main goal in making skincare products is to use all naturally derived ingredients combined with science to strengthen their potency in serums and creams. Their skincare really stood out because all the ingredients are highlighted, explained and not discreetly hidden like some companies.
My main interest is the Vitamin C serum. I have some pigmentation on my cheeks due to age and sun exposure and probably genetics. It's something I am always working on improving on my skin, especially its texture. I know we've all seen many brands and labels with that specifically but I like that Mad Hippie has a really high concentration of Vitamin C as its 2nd ingredient. After that ingredient, there is hyauraulic acid, which is the binding ingredient that keeps our skin moist and supple. After that, we see other fruit enzymes like grapefruit, cherry and plant extracts like chamomile and sage.

I really feel like these indie companies really focus on purer ingredients for consumers, and they don't take account in having to charge us for marketing and different campaigns but never having to compromise on studies and facts.
What do you guys think? What are your thoughts on indie skincare companies versus big global skincare companies?
