This is my first blog review! And my first blog post in general. Because of this, I picked one of my favorite products. I wanted to review the Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner because it’s become a staple in my skincare routines.
Used to balance pH levels, hydrate, and prep skin for routine.
$32-34 for 4.2 oz.
$10 for 1 oz.
- CoQ-10 – also called coenzyme Q10, this is a fat-soluble substance that naturally occurs in the body. It protects our skin (and other organs) against free radicals. As we get older, the amount of CoQ-10 decreases.
- Aloe – a gel-like substance from the Aloe Vera plant, it helps repair and soothe skin. Aloe also helps fight bacteria and fungus.
- Chamomile – a term used to refer to multiple species of flowers. Dried flowers are brewed to make tea, oils, and extracts. Chamomile has anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties, which prevent acne. Chamomile may also help even skin tone.
- Sage – an ancient herb that has antioxidants that help protect against free radicals.
- Hyaluronic Acid – a substance that naturally occurs in skin cells. It helps skin cells retain moisture.
Full Ingredient List:
Water (Aqua/Eau), Aloe Barbadensis, Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10), Hyaluronic Acid, Anthemis Nobilis (Roman Chamomile), Salvia Officinalis (Sage), Carica Papaya Leaf Extract, Cucums Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Flower Oil, Propanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Sorbate

How I Use It:
I’ve used this toner for about 3 months. I use it once or twice a day, depending on the other products in my routine. I apply the toner by spraying a few pumps directly onto a cotton ball and swiping the cotton ball around my face. Sometimes I’ll also spray it directly onto my face to refresh my skin in the middle of the day.
This has quickly become my main toner (I also use Pixi’s Glow Tonic if I want some AHAs in my routine). It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin, dries quickly, and has a pleasant smell (there’s NO fragrance added; the smell comes directly from the natural ingredients). My skin feels hydrated and refreshed after I use it. And since it comes with a spray cap, you can apply it multiple ways. More importantly, the ingredient list contains ingredients that I trust.
I also like the general message and approach of Indie Lee for all of her products. First, Indie Lee is a combo of Independent + Lisa. Lisa was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2008 and was given 6 months to live. After talking to doctors, she realized that what she was putting on her skin could have contributed to the tumor. She began to create her own skincare line using clean cruelty-free ingredients after her surgery.
None. I think this is one of the few universal skincare products that would work for everyone.
Would I repurchase?
Heck yes. In fact, I already have. This is becoming a holy grail product for me because of efficacy and ingredients.
