Pros: animal cruelty-free, beautiful and eye-catching container, improves my skin tone, it soothes my skin, mild and everyday exfoliation, no alcohol, pleasant aroma
Cons: it doesn’t suit couperosis skin, it isn’t for sensitive skin, it’s better not to use it in the morning

Hello everybody!

So, I want to review one of the most hyped products of beauty bloggers and ordinary people - the Pixi Glow Tonic.

The price for it was about $25.

I bought it as many other products, hoping for some miracle to happen. I expected that it would really make my problematic skin look less problematic.

So, what are you, Pixi Glow Tonic?

This is what they state in the product description:

Instantly refreshing, 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.

I won’t cite the list of ingredients here, because I know nothing in chemistry, so, for me the most important thing is the result.

What do I see?

It’s a pretty big bottle of orange colors with 250 ml of liquid content. There’s a light-green sticker which is so pleasant to look at. It really looks positive and gives good hopes. The liquid inside is transparent and smells like lilac for me. The aroma is very pleasant, by the way.

At first I apply this tonic to a cotton round and then I swipe it all over my skin (I do it over my cleansed skin). I swipe the cotton pad over my skin, leaving my eye area and lips out (there’s acid in the ingredients after all).

After using this product, my skin tingles a little and it becomes red. This tonic doesn’t even out my skin tone because of my couperosis. The effect is visible only within 10-20 minutes after use. The skin looks visually more supple and glowing.

The tonic doesn’t affect my enlarged pores at all. I can even put it like this - be ready that your T-zone will look oily and shiny.

Generalizing I have to say - use this product overnight, then you’ll definitely like the result in the morning. Maybe there’s sense in using it in the morning as well, but only in case you wear a SPF-infused product.

My rate is 4 stars out of 5. It is for the glowy skin, pleasant scent but pretty shitty result on my problematic skin.
