Influenster Reviewers’ Choice Awards: Spotlight on Indie Skincare

The Indie Skincare products we clearly love

Our sixth annual Influenster Reviewers’ Choice Awards winners are live, and our contest to celebrate them is running from now until October 1, 2020! We’re taking a deeper look into some of the winners. Up first: Indie skincare.

2020 was all about skincare. As many of us started wearing masks, hopping on zoom calls, and spending a lot more time at home, and a lot less time putting on a full face of makeup, people focused more on their skincare routines and trying new products. With people spending more time trying new skincare products, our members let us know that indie skincare brands, like our winners who follow, were exciting, important discoveries. Let’s check out our winners!

Best Indie Acne Treatment: COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch

Our community is obsessed with these patches. Influensters have used them as spot treatments, or to cover up a spot before applying makeup. They’ve been described as “literal magic”.

Best Indie Facial Cleanser: Tatcha The Deep Cleanser

This classic has a refreshing scent, and is gentle at the same time. It does an amazing job leaving your skin feeling completely clean. As with most Tatcha products, the scent is also a huge part of the appeal.

Best Indie Facial Moisturizer: SATURDAY SKIN Waterfall Glacier Water Cream

Our members choose this product because they love the combination of the lightweight, water based texture and the deeply hydrating effects of this moisturizer. Our community also loved that it was brightening and packed full of antioxidants and minerals.

Best Indie Eye Cream: belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb

Our community was extra excited about the quick, almost immediate results. They also loved the fact that just the littlest bit of this goes a long way. If you’re looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, you might want to check this out.

Best Indie Night CreamOrigins HIGH POTENCY NIGHT-A-MINS™ Resurfacing Cream With Fruit-Derived AHAs

Our community loves a good two-for-one; this night cream is also a peel. The super effective AHA removes dead cells while you sleep. A lot of Influensters have been including #holygrail in their reviews for this super moisturizing and replenishing night cream.

Best Indie Face Oil: Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil

Light textures were the trend of 2020, and this face oil is ultra light. It tones, brightens, firms, and evens skin tone but never weighs your skin down. Between the rose scent, and the Vitamin C for extra brightening powers, Influensters were reaching for this face oil above all other indie face oils in 2020.

Best Indie Facial Mask: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

Between the juicy, fruity, watermelon scent and the bouncy, unique texture, Influensters have been enjoying putting this mask on at night, and waking up glowy and fresh.

And finally, The Ordinary won four Influenster Reviewers Choice Awards!

Best Indie Facial Serum: The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% B5 
Best Indie Toner: The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution
Best Indie Facial Peel: The Ordinary. AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Best Indie Primer: The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer
