Pixi Glow Tonic

Hi everyone! I am the first to admit that I am totally lazy when it comes to skin care and I definitely do neglect my skin which is really bad, the problem for me is time. I work till 10 o'clock at night most days and then I have to be up at 6am for uni again the next day so when I get home I need to jump into bed straight away so I only take my make up off and that's it. As a result I have skin that I am fairly unhappy with. There are a few things that I feel aren't totally my fault for example I have red pigmentation around my cheeks but I think I could do a lot more to help my dry skin which to be honest I find very dull. So when I heard about the Pixi Glow Tonic from absolutely loads of bloggers who raved about it I really wanted to try it, especially because it sounded so quick and easy and something I could add into the new skincare routine I wanted to have. By the way these pictures were taken back when the bottle was new, I have been using it for around 2 weeks now.


It is an exfoliating toner infused with glycolic acid and aloe vera, whilst this doesn't mean much to me it also states that it can quickly and gently counteract dullness to leave your skin luminous. This is something that definitely appeals to me as I don't really understand the science talk! For me all I really want is soft luminous skin, I'm fed up of my skin looking so tired!


It is very simple to use as part of a skin care routine, you can use it AM and PM as it states on the bottle but I prefer to use it just on a night, you apply it with a cotton pad and sweep it over your face. I was skeptical at first because me and skin care products don't get on, I'm really impatient when I don't see a difference quickly and I give up straight away but this hasn't been the case at all with this product! I knew I wasn't going to wake up with perfect skin over night because my skin is so dull but the improvements I have seen over just two weeks are so reassuring! The biggest thing I noticed was that my red pigmentation has calmed down a lot and I'm really hoping that by continuing to use it this will even out more and more. Also I had a few spots the week that I started using this that wouldn't budge but it helped clear them up so quickly! I do find that since my skin is already dry it doesn't do anything moisturising wise but if I use this alongside a moisturiser my skin feels much fresher and softer. 

Although it does state it removes dead skin cells I have very flaky skin on my nose which I have still had to use a scrub on (I haven't had to use it on the rest of my face though, just my nose) as this doesn't tackle that problem however it is bad so I didn't really expect it to. At £18 a bottle it isn't cheap but it will last a very long time and it really is amazing! I bought mine from Cult Beauty and I really want to try the Glow Mud Cleanser to use alongside this. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to improve their skins luminosity and make it look less tired, it really has made a difference. I feel like I do look more glowy and that is only after 2 weeks so hopefully it will keep working. However the biggest plus for me is that it has helped with my red pigmentation on my cheeks, something which has made me so self concious in the past. Let me know in the comments if you've tried this or anything else by Pixi!

  4. I've got extremely fatigued skin as well, and I've been meaning to fix it as much as possible, but alas, the budget. This tonic sounds amazing, though, I think I'd give the price tag a waive just because it sounds so good. Have a lovely weekend, Lauren!
