Pixi Glow Tonic

Pixi Glow tonic tonerA while a good I did some investigating into toners (the majority of non-industry people I speak to had no idea what they actually did) and ever since I've been using a toner every day and I have noticed a difference in my skin. Whilst doing my research I heard a lot of good things about Pixi Glow Tonic but it was always out of stock online (as it is now) and their London store is in Soho, not somewhere I go during opening hours since having a baby.

Last week however I was on my way to Illamasqua to see the amazing Julia Townend give a body painting demo and found myself right outside Pixi so in I went and out I came with the Glow Tonic. It's impossible to not try this out - it's £16 for 250ml which is incredibly reasonable considering how much you can pay for skincare products now.

I have used it every day twice a day since buying it and my skin has transformed. It is alcohol free and slews away dead skin cells leaving your face looking visibly brighter and fresher than before helping tone and tighten skin making this perfect for dull, sensitive or ageing skin.
So there's no alcohol, but what is in it? Witch-hazel to tone and firm, Ginseng extract to help supply oxygen to the skin, glycolic acid loosens the dead skin cells and exfoliates, fructose and glucose act as humectants to keep the skin moisturised. This is what they call an acid toner but don't let that put you off - AHA's are great for hydrating the skin. reducing the signs of age and pigmentation and giving some youthful glow.

If you are thinking about delving into toners try this one. Without a doubt it is the best I've ever tried. I'm going to try it out on a few faces then it may make it's way into my pro kit.
