Review: Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner

Earlier this year, I purchased one of the Caroline Hirons Cult Beauty Box. The set included a few fill size items from her favourites including the Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner.

Product Claims: This is the ultimate skin quencher for complexions that often feel tight and uncomfortably dry. It’s good for those with ageing concerns, as its star ingredient - CoQ-10 - works to boost the skin’s natural repair and defence mechanisms for a smoother complexion over time. It also contains hyaluronic acid (an impressive humectant), which works to help the skin retain much-needed moisture, while soothing aloe vera, chamomile and cucumber keep skin calm and contented. Think of this as a skin-softening precursor to your serum or moisturiser.

Ingredients: Purified water (aqua), Aloe Barbadensis, Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic Acid, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile), Salvia Officinalis (Sage), Carica Papaya Leaf Extract, Cucums Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Flower Oil, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin

Review: The CoQ-10 Toner is moisturising and does soften the skin, but not on the level of toner essences. It's more like a traditional toner, but minus the astringents. My bottle is nearly empty so you can't see it in the picture, but the toner is a light yellow colour. I apply this after acid toners or as my sole toner when I skip the acid step. It has a slightly tacky feel initially, but this dissipates completely once fully dry. The fragrance is very fresh and light. It's good, but not so great that I missed it when I finished my bottle. In fact, I was overly eager to finish the bottle so that I could get something new.

I don't like the packaging. The top leaks and when you dispense product, it runs over the side of the cap and leaves a rim of product residue on the bottle rim. Pretty bottle, but they really need a better top.

Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner is available in a 4oz size/120ml on Cult Beauty for £30 and DermStore for $32.

Would I repurchase? I prefer my moisturising toners to be a bit thicker in consistency so that I can apply layers for the 7 skin method. However, Indie Lee is more readily available and does work. So if I am unable to get a toner of preference, I would revisit this. 

Price: 3/5
Packaging: 3/5
Fragrance: 4/5
Performance: 4/5
