Pixi Glow Tonic £18 - Link
I will admit it, I'm an avid bandwagon jumper, especially when it comes to beauty and skincare products. So when I was in need of a new toner I took to the internet so see what I could try next, after seeing rave reviews of the Pixi Glow Tonic I couldn't wait to pick this up at the Carnaby Store a few weeks ago. Since using this in my daily routine I can see why there are so many positive reviews and its given holy grail status.
Described as an oxygenating and exfoliating facial glow tonic, this toner contains ginseng and fructose to help firm, tone and tighten the skin. The exfoliating properties mean that you can use this toner twice a day to exfoliate your skin, helping to remove dead skin sells and reducing the appearance of fine lines. The more I looked into this product the more I saw the ingredient Glycolic Acid, and found that this is sort of a miracle ingredient in the sense that it helps exfoliate the dead skin cells without those small beads you find in traditional exfoliator products.
I like to apply this using a cotton wool pad and it instantly feels like it's cleaning my skin, and picking up the dirt that my cleanser doesn't always get. I have been using this quite generously on the pad and have noticed that in fact I haven't used as much as I thought so I can see this lasting a good few months.
I will admit it toning is sometimes the one step that I miss out when it comes to my skincare regime, and you can tell the difference in my skin. The days where I skip toner my skin can become blemish prone and dull. However since using this daily I have noticed a significant change in the condition of my skin, it now feels brighter and full of life. Whilst my breakouts haven't completely stopped yet (darn you health) they heal quickly and aren't as harsh. Now don't expect results overnight because I find that this is one of those products that leads your skin to getting worse before it gets better, however you will be grateful of the results.
The Pixi Glow Tonic will set you back £18.00 which isn't too bad to be honest, as that's what I normally fork out for my Clinique one. However this is a bit tricky to get a hold of if you aren't local to London, otherwise it's an online splurge that will be needed.
What's your go to tonic?
