Jun 24, 2017 - Nisha Qasim -
Pixi Glow Tonic is exfoliating toner with 5% Glycolic Acid formula and is quite raved among beauty gurus around the world. If you don't know about Glycol acid benefits for skin, it is a smaller molecule in the group of active compounds known as AHA's (alpha hydroxy acids) which penetrated into skin easily and deeply, working wonders for damaged skin like acne, dullness, blackheads and helps in collagen production. Let me tell you what i think about this toner.
- Exfoliates and purifies the skin with Glycolic Acid
- Ginseng improves circulation and energizes
- Aloe vera soothes and hydrates
- Refines the appearance of pores
- Gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion
- Balances, heals and soothes for radient, healthier looking skin

As it is toner so you have to apply it after cleansing and before moisturizer. Spill some product on cotton pad and swipe across face gently. I would suggest to not rub it to get any exfoliation benefit. Simply swiping and dabbing across the face will do its job. There are three main ingredients i noticed which are helpful in exfoliating, toning and soothing. The glycolic acid in this toner gently exfoliate the dead skin and reveal new healthy skin. The aloe soothes irritating or any broken skin from breakouts and provide hydration. Witch hazel tones and firm your skin.
It is suggested to use it day and night time routine but if you have more exposure of sun i would suggest to not use it in day time. As glycolic acid works its way in skin to exfoliate and reveal new skin, your skin can become sensitive for short time and sun rays will not be kind to your skin. So it is better to use it in night time beauty routine. With few uses, you will notice the benefits of this tonic. It instantly makes skin feel smooth and if you have dry dull skin, you will notice your skin more bright and healthy. Having tried it on dry, combination and oily skin, i would say it is suitable to all skin and works great for both oily skin or skin with dry patches. If you have oily skin this toner will give you clean and refreshing feeling. It is definitely a product worth trying as it is effective and works great for all skin.
Overall it will be a good product if you want clean, smooth and fresh skin every morning. If you want to start using glycolic acid products for chemical peeling or any other cure this toner can be nice start.
