Pixi Glow Tonic


Does anyone remember that one specific video done by the Pixiwoo girls and Caroline Hirons that made Pixi Glow Tonic blow up in the UK? You can see it here.

Everyone wanted to try it, everyone just wanted their hands clasped around it and I was one of them. Knowing that it was incredibly hard to get your hands on due to stock levels, I wasn't feeling very hopeful. However after I went down to London one day, I decided to visit the only Pixi store in the UK and was lucky to be able to get myself a bottle there and then. There had been a delivery of stock the day before and the lovely cashier was frantically on the phone with orders and packing up bottles ready to ship the next day.

I did consider getting myself the P50 Lotion from Liberty which is a more expensive version of the Pixi Glow, but when one bottle is around £50 and you're feeling pretty strapped for cash there's not really a question about it. Pixi Glow Tonic is meant to be pretty much the same thing for a fraction of the price so I was sold straight away.


If you don't already know, this toner contains Glycolic acid which is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). Sound familiar? The term AHA has been thrown around the beauty community a lot in recently months. I'm far from an expert but from what I know, there are a group of natural acids which can be applied to the skin to buff away the dead skin cells and reveal a brighter and softer layer of skin underneath. This helps to keep you looking more radiant and healthy. Who doesn't want that? The acids can help with fine lines and wrinkles whilst the Aloe and Witch Hazel tone and firm.

I generally use my toner after cleansing. I take two pumps on a cotton pad and then swipe it all over my face, being very careful to avoid the eye area. 

I started off by using this twice a day every day which you can do as the toner is so gentle. However I felt that this was too harsh for me. My face started to feel a bit dry and overdone so I limited it down to around 4 days a week and only in the morning on that day. I've found that this works a lot better for me. I still get all the benefits without any of the tightness.

If your looking for a great exfoliating toner, I definitely recommend trying this one out regardless of your skin type. I believe that it is marketed as a normal to dry toner by I have Combo/oily skin and it works perfectly well on me.
