Pixi Glow Tonic Review
Another cult beauty product but this time not one I've had in my skin care routine for very long. I had always seen it mentioned on many a blog and even seen it in store but for some reason never put it to the test....
Well just over a month ago I was working near Liberties and I saw on-line they now stocked the Pixi Glow Tonic, I popped in and purchased it and little did I know I'd quickly become lost without this amazing product in my skin care routine.
I've known for a long time about Glycolic Acid and the good it can do for all various skin types (see below),
"Glycolic acid is part of the group of active compounds known as AHA's (alpha hydroxy acids). Derived from cane sugar: It has the smallest molecules in the group so is able to penetrate skin deeply and easily, making it the most effective for treating fine lines, acne, blackheads, dullness, oiliness etc."
but in the past I have only ever used concentrates of the chemical, which can sometimes leave the skin slightly irritated and wasn't something that necessarily balanced my skin in the best possible way, or, something I could use daily.
The Glow tonic is 5% Glycolic Acid, so is much more gentle and can be used daily morning and night.
I did this at the beginning but now personally for me I just choose to incorporate it in my evening routine so once a day. I use it after cleansing and before my toners and serums or oils.
I already new the wonders that can happen from the use of Glycolic acid but for those of you that don't, when you wake up the next morning you basically feel as though the old dead skin has been removed and you're left with the soft, fresh glowing skin beneath. I find it really evens out any discolouration I have and actually leaves my skin glowing. It also balances out my oiliness. I once read that it is such a fantastic product as it brings dry skin up to normal and oily skin down to normal. Well, I can definitely vouch for the latter.
So many products on the market now claim, 'glowing', 'rejuvenation', 'a visible difference by morning'....if you're only going to believe one product you've got to give this one a go!
Now that I'm using it only once a day it does last a long time and I believe the price is very reasonable (£18.00) for what noticeable difference the product provides.
The scent is pleasant and I love the packaging, simple but with a high quality feel. There is a slight tingling feeling when you first apply but this is normal for the Glycolic Acid is working.
Give it a try and see what you think of the results!
