To be honest, I have only recently tried the Glow Tonic from Pixi Beauty, only late last year to be exact. I know, I know, people have been raving about it since forever but I never got around to trying it. First off, I didn’t know if this already existed when I was experiencing severe breakouts in my teen years during the last 90s. Second, when I found its existence I was already doing fine with the exfoliating toners I have and I didn’t feel the need to replace them. Now, I regret it. This toner should’ve been in my stash a long time ago.
The Pixi Glow Tonic promises to exfoliate the skin and clean pores by sweeping away excess oil and impurities. The alcohol-free toner contains 5% glycolic acid to remove impurities, aloe vera to soothe and hydrate, and red ginseng to protect and energize the skin.
It’s watery with a certain viscosity to it and the past few months I’ve been trying this gave me the clearest and most glowing complexion I’ve had. The past few months have actually been great for my skin. The products I’ve been using have been working so well, this included. I’ve read that this helped those with skin battling with acne and though I cannot attest to that because my skin has cleared up, save for some bumps here and there, what I can share is the effects of this cruelty-free toner on oily and aging skin.
I use this exfoliating toner thrice a week, on days I want to focus on brightening and softening my skin as this works well under my cream products. Nowadays, I use this when I want to take a break from my stronger exfoliating toner, before using a hydrating toner and following with my other products. I didn’t know my skin was looking for glycolic acid so much as a month after I used this, I noticed how bright and glowing my skin looked. Compared to my other toners, this is the only one that can revitalize and soften and brighten my skin. Love, love!
