Reviewing Pixi Glow Tonic

Pixi Glow Tonic is a cult skincare product and I finally have a bottle in my little hands  it’s pretty good value, at $15 for 100 mL

Instantly refreshing, {Pixi}’s gorgeous glow-giver brightens, tones and conditions your skin after cleansing. Enriched with 5% glycolic acid – a natural derivative of sugar cane, and member of the alpha-hydroxy acid family – this gentle, exfoliating formula dissolves the bonds binding dulling dead cells to skin’s surface, to reveal the ‘new’ healthy skin cells underneath. Aloe then soothes and hydrates while oxygenating ginseng promotes cell health and skin vibrancy; witch hazel firms and tones, while horse chestnut boosts blood flow, to grant your complexion a naturally fresh and dewy radiance. Astonishingly affordable, this is mild yet effective, making it suitable for all skin types – just apply a few drops to a cotton wool pad, and sweep all over skin after cleansing (morning and evening) to gradually diminish signs of sun damage, fine lines, scarring and other imperfections.

Glow Tonic is an exfoliating toner, containing 5% glycolic acid as its star ingredient. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which acts to unstick dead skin cells, allowing them to slough off more easily to leave smoother, glowing skin. The pH of this product is 4-5, making this a relatively weak exfoliating product. As well as glycolic acid, there are other beneficial/possibly beneficial ingredients, like aloe vera (emollient), witch hazel extract (astringent), horse chestnut and ginseng extracts (antioxidant), and a whole host of humectants (glycerin, glucose, fructose… pretty much the rest of the ingredients list!).

Ingredients: Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Glycolic Acid, Ammonium Glycolate, Glycerin, Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose, Urea, Dextrin, Alanine, Glutamic Acid, Hexyl Nicotinate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Biotin, Polysorbate 20, Fragrance.

Glow Tonic is still worth a try if you like  a gentle exfoliant. If AHA products usually irritate your skin, this should go on your to-buy list – it has a decent amount of glycolic acid at a reasonably low pH, but all the soothing ingredients leave your skin soft, and it barely stings when you apply it. It also has a pleasant cucumber-ish scent. Just make sure you load up on sunscreen when you use any chemical exfoliant!

    1. Thank you ❤
      Yes, it is good product but it will depend largely on your skin tolerance and how accustomed you are to chemical exfoliation. Because the last thing you want to do is over-exfoliate your skin. As you said you have sensitive skin just do a patch test for few days and then use it normally as you would. 🙂 ❤
