Coronavirus is a serious pandemic that is in one way or another affecting everyone worldwide. We know you might be worried, but we’re here to provide some facts and tips when it comes to coronavirus, beauty, and Love, Indie B. products.
Misinformation is common, and we urge you to get your info from official sources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), your state officials, and your local officials.
If you haven’t heard, large beauty retailers like Sephora have banned in-store makeup and skincare product testing. If you’re sad about it, remember that it’s for your own good. We really don’t want contaminated makeup to spread coronavirus.
For everyone’s protection, please don’t ask for product samples or makeovers in stores that may not have banned both.
Many brands have been affected by the pandemic in terms of sales and events.
Many who work in the beauty industry have been out of jobs or have had to be cautious when at their jobs.
The popular Instagram account @esteelaundry has been posting people’s anonymous messages and screenshots of beauty brands’ work-from-home policies and what businesses are doing when it comes to coronavirus.

Online shopping can also be a plus during the coronavirus because it’ll limit your direct contact with large groups of people.
Our products are all stored at our San Francisco studio (not a large warehouse), and all items are personally packed and shipped by our founder Leila.
She always washes her hands for at least 20 seconds before, after, and in between prepping packages.
And no, you don’t have to worry about catching coronavirus from packages. If you’re concerned about your package being handled by various different mail delivery people on its way to you, you can always let the package sit for 24 hours before you touch it, and/or sanitize the package and all the products inside after you receive it.
It’s scary not knowing how long this coronavirus outbreak will last. Whether you’re practicing social distancing, are self-quarantining, working from home, or are still showing up for work because you have to, remember to breathe.
Self-care isn’t just about face masks and bubble baths, but sometimes they can really help in situations where you’re anxious!
And even if you are spending more time indoors, you can look on the bright side of things. It just means you’ll have more time to practice a cat eye, or try on some new eye shadow you’ve purchased.
Even if you may not be seeing loved ones in person, you can definitely get all dolled up for a virtual video chat or stay-at-home date night with your partner.
From everyone at Love, Indie B. our thoughts are with you and your family. Take care of your health and nourish your mind, body, and soul.
