  • 💕 When we came across a skincare line that was all about enhancing natural beauty, supporting women and keeping things as fuss-free as possible, we couldn’t help but do a little happy dance. Introducing… @indagarebeauty the Brisbane-based skincare line you seriously need to know about. 💕 . . To find out a little bit more about this incredible line, we talked to the brains (and beauty) behind Indagare, Tanya Joslin. Check out our blog, online now. Read about Prickly Pear Seed Oil and their incredible Illumino Youth Serum, how their Argan and prickly pear seed oils oils are fair trade and supporting small rural communities, and best of all ... the incredible glow skin gets from using the magical (cactus seed 🌵) oil in their Illumino (it absorbs immediately - a face oil that doesn’t feel like an oil!). Discover this beautiful truly natural, toxin free beauty brand for yourself. Your skin will thank you! . #indagarebeauty #toxinfreebeauty
