Dermatologist-Recommended and Clinically-Tested For Compromised Skin: Lindi Skin (Review)

sent for feature consideration

I love discovering new skincare brands especially those that are doctor-recommended and clinically tested. Formulated to treat extreme dryness, rash, itchiness, and dark under eyes amongst patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation and other cancer therapies, Lindi Skin has touched many lives aesthetically and emotionally.

Reading the back story of this brand is cathartic. Started in 2003 by its CEO and cancer survivor Lindy Snider, she teamed up with topnotch oncologists and dermatologists, including cancer patients, to develop products that are safe and gentle even to those with severely compromised skin conditions.   As a skincare enthusiast myself, I am more than glad to add Lindi to my must-have arsenal!

The Face Wash ($22, 120ml) is definitely one of the gentlest I have tried. For one, it’s lather and fragrance-free. Its water-like formula (very liquidy) sets it apart from the majority of cream and gel-based facial cleansers I own. 

Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Disodium PEG-12 Dimethicone Sulfosuccinate, Coco Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Maltooligosyl Glucoside/Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Glucose Oxidase, Lactoperoxidase, Glucose, Xanthan Gum, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Citric Acid

The Face Serum ($40, 30ml) is my number one favorite from the line. Initially I was adamant to even put this on my face with lavender being one of the ingredients (I had a reaction to it in the past). But lo and behold, my face tolerated this product very well! I love the velvety-moist feel of this serum, plus it has a very calming aroma from different herbal and vitamin concoctions, you have to sniff it to believe it! I use it day and night, sometimes on its own, but oftentimes pre-moisturizer. Soft and supple skin, mission possible.

Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Astaxanthin, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Ceramide 2, Tribehenin, PEG-10 Rapeseed Sterol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Retinyl Palmitate, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract, Echinacea Purpurea Extract, Algae Extract, Hydroxydecyl Ubiquinone, Thioctic Acid, Bisabolol, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Tocotrienols, Tocopherol, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Myrtillus Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Crocus Sativus Flower Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Extract, Pinus Strobus Bark Extract, Portulaca Oleracea (Purslane) Extract, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Rhubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Betula Alba Bark Extract, Parfum (Fragrance), Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Extract, Epilobium Angustifolium Leaf Extract

lindi eye hydrator, review, skincare for cancer patients

I have been slacking on eye creams because I feel like moisturizers and serums are enough most of the time. Lindi Eye Hydrator ($30) has a unique gel-balm-consistency. It’s not greasy and gets absorbed onto the skin pretty fast. While I still have dark under eyes (genetics mind you), I enjoy the overall soft and hydrated feeling I get from this eye product.

Astaxanthin Extract, Cyclomethicone and Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isopropyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone Dipeptide 2, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide, Arginine, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Astaxanthin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Calluna Vulgaris (Heather) Extract, Euphrasia Officinalis (Eyebright) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Leaf Extract (Chamomile), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Phenoxyethanol (Plant Derivative), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Benzyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate

Lip balm is a different story because I stash one everywhere. While I’m not a fan of its pot packaging due to hygienic reasons, this lip balm ($10) renders superb hydration.

Astaxanthin Extract, Petrolatum, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Ozokerite, Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Myristyl Myristate, EthylHexyl Palmitate, Beeswax, Stearyl Alcohol, Benzophenone 3, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Flavor: Buttery Vanilla, Phenoxyethanol (Plant Derivative), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E)

All Lindi Skin products are free from parabens, phthalates, gluten and animal testing. The packaging is shabby chic and cute and their products are decently-priced. For a limited time (now to May 31st 2015), the company offers 25% discount + free shipping with code BLOG25 on checkout. For an undisclosed amount, the company will also donate to the American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Good program for every purchase through this date.

    That's an inspiring story behind the brand. Love the sound of the eye hydrator!

    That cleanser and eye cream both sound like something I'd love to use. I like that the cleanser is very gentle, lately I've been obsessing over finding gentle alternatives with neutral pH.

    I am trying this brand out too, and I especially love the eye gel and the lip balm. I also love the serum that I use as a primer. I think it's great that these products exist for women undergoing radiation or chemo or like me, for super dry skin.
