|But, the packaging is so gorgeous and simple... ugh!|
In defense of this toner, I purchased it when it was still very warm outside and the hyaluronic acid and aloe combo was possibly just too moisturizing for me at the time. My skin always felt so sticky, and eventually oily, after I applied this. It is possible that the excess moisture was the main contributing factor to my breakouts rather than the ingredients themselves. This means it could work amazingly for those of you with dry skin.
It's really unfortunate that I can't pinpoint exactly what it is about this toner that my skin doesn't agree with, especially since I want to like it so bad. I'm hoping it was simply too moisturizing for my skin during the warmer late summer/ early fall months. I may even retry the stuff now that it's colder outside, because my complexion has been looking a little dry and lackluster lately.
I must say that after reading a ton of rave reviews, I was a little disappointed. However, I'm not going to let my experience with this product to turn me off to the brand as a whole. I've still got my eyes on the Brightening Cleanser and Blemish Stick. Also, should I retry this toner during the winter months and like it, I will be back on this blog, writing a post and eating my words. Seasons change and so does your skin, so you just never know.
Have you all tried any Indie Lee products? I would love to hear about your experiences with this brand.
