Pixi products are new in Portugal (I know, it’s like we live in Nárnia) and when I got the chance, I bought the Pixi Glow Tonic to see what all the fuss was about.
I had so much curiosity on trying this tonic because off all the comments that I read, and to see if it’s true what they say about it.
Spoiler alert: This is THE TONIC.
For who don’t know, Pixi is a London brand created by Petra Strand more than ten years ago. It is specialized in skincare and makeup.
Flawless in a few fuss-free minutes – that’s what Pixi is all about!
The Pixi Glow Tonic is the number one, the star on their entire collection and now I can understand why.
The main constituents of this tonic are Glycolic acid, Aloe Vera, and ginseng.
The glycolic acid has the function of exfoliating and purifies the skin.
The Ginseng is to improve the circulation and gives energy to the skin.
The Aloe Vera is to hydrate and smooth, the skin.
What this tonic does for you:
• Exfoliate (this is a chemical exfoliating if you want to know the different types of exfoliating click here)
• Tone the skin
• Firm the skin
• Tight the skin
• Remove dead skin
• Give a healthier look
• Refine the appearance of the pores
• Gives glow to the skin/radiance
• Clean the face
• Saturate a cotton pad with the tonic
• Sweep across the face, neck, and décolletage, avoiding the eye area
• After it continues your skincare routine
This tonic can be used at morning and/or at night, or basically when you need.
What I usually do is using at night, because at morning I like to use my Filorga NCTF-essence, because I like the comfort that that essence gives me. We have a post about this Filorga NCTF-lotion, click here to read it.
I adore this tonic. That’s it! This is the best tonic that I ever tried, and I have on my list of try’s some expensive ones. But the Pixi Glow Tonic put all of them at one side.
This is a chemical exfoliating that is not abrasive, that means that you can use it every day.
The smell of this tonic is really good, is soft so the more sensitive ones can use.
The effects are immediate, which I love. The skin turns glowing and looks healthy, almost immediately.
Sometimes you can feel a tingle sensation, that usually happens in the first times that you use the tonic or when you are suffering from blemishes or others imperfections. Feeling that tingle sensation is for me at least, good, because that means that the tonic and the glycolic acid is doing the job.
I once told you in others posts that I have some intolerance to gluten, and the effects of eating gluten on me are difficult digestion and a total bad digestion feeling. But that enemy that is the glúten also shows on my face, making me whiteheads – that are not pimples but sometimes they can infect and be ugly.
I know that you are not supposed to do this, but sometimes I squeezed the white head making it infect and with some marks. This tonic made the miracle of making almost every whitehead disappear.
And other thing this tonic made, was that the scars of that whitehead that I squeezed are almost gone, or really gone. It’s amazing.
I think that the only con that I have against this tonic is the size of the bottle, is too small. But maybe that is just in Portugal. Here the maxim size is 100mL and has the cost of 12,55€.
I have normal skin but I totally recommend this tonic for all skin types and it’s going to be hard for other tonics to impress me now. If you are interested in buying it, click here.
What is your favorite tonic, tell me in comments bellow because maybe one of them is going to be the one impressing me after the Pixi glow tonic.
