Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner Review
The Indie Lee CoQ10 toner has been a beloved item in my skincare collection. I was introduced to the toner back in January when I won it in a giveaway. Since then I’ve gone through a few minis and now a full size. I felt it was only right that I provide a full blog post review about it. From January to now I have purchased this toner for a few close family members and was also told by a few people that I influenced them to purchase the CoQ10. If you’re interested in learning more about it, keep reading!

How I use the Indie Lee coq10 toner & Review
At night I typically do a two-step cleansing routine, which includes the usage of an oil based cleanser to remove make-up and sunscreen. I immediately follow-up with a gel based cleanser to finish cleansing my face. I rarely dry my face with towels these days. My skin is dehydrated and needs moisture. I also prefer to start applying my skincare to damp skin. After cleansing I start with my toner. The Indie Lee CoQ10 is the toner I use religiously in my night time routine. I spray the toner directly on to my face and I wait a few minutes for it to soak in. Whatever is left on my face after I press into my skin.
There’s been times when I have applied the toner and lost track of time doing something else. I’ve noticed during those occasions my skin felt hydrated and smooth. Unlike many toners that contain alcohol, this one does not and leaves my skin so soft and hydrated. After using the toner, I continue with the other steps in my skincare routine. I honestly believe this toner provides a good base/primer for your skincare routine. Even though this is a toner, I know it can easily be used a refresher throughout the day- especially if you have dry skin. I know for certain my travel size will be going with me on my next flight whenever that is.
Packaging: the toner itself is packaged in a glass frost container. The glass container is eco-friendly. I’ve even seen it recycled on Instagram with people using it to hold small flowers in their restroom. As you can see from my picture above I decided to partake in that and I loved the aftermath effect. I love that it has a spray as it makes it easier to use. I love spraying this directly onto my face instead of using a cotton round. If you prefer to use your toner with a cotton round, the spray would allow for easy measurement to ensure that too much product is not being wasted.
Possible Downside? The only downside when it comes to using all natural products is that they often have a shorter shelf in comparison to products that contain perseratives. The Indie Lee Toner has a recommended shelf life of 6 months once it’s opened. In this case I wouldn’t consider this to be a downside for me as I feel like this recommended shelf life is ensuring that I’m using fresh and effective ingredients on my face. I would say one bottle with everyday use multiple times a day will last you about 5-6 months.
Will I repurchase? Yes. I already have a backup and I’m waiting to use it! I’m going to hold off on using my back-up just yet as I’m currently trying to go through products that I have that need to be used.
