Hello again lovely readers!
I was in need of a new Glow Tonic from Pixi, so I went to Shoppers Drug Mart to pick it up, and then I saw this little value pack of minis that includes two others types of tonics. I thought this would be a fun and easy way to try the other ones without breaking the bank.
Each bottle contains 1.35 fl oz and it costs $33.00 CAD plus tax. I knew I loved the glow tonic so I was excited to try the other two. I wanted to give a mini review of each and explain how they do different things for my skin.
Glow Tonic: This is a 5% Glycolic Acid toner which is meant to chemically exfoliate all the dead skin off so you wake up with super smooth skin. The exfoliating properties also help to lighten dark marks. Truthfully sometimes I use this stuff instead of a face cleanser when I haven’t worn makeup all day, and I feel like it gets the dirt out of my face and I don’t wake up with pimples. It does sting a little bit when you first put it on, but that quickly subsides and eventually the redness does too. This is why I recommend to use this only at night, and use a strong SPF during the day.
Vitamin C Tonic: This tonic is infused with Vitamin C which helps to brighten the skin by reducing dark marks, and it also contains Aloe Vera and various fruit extracts to help hydrate the skin. It smells like lemons and it feels really hydrating on the skin. Vitamin C is a natural exfoliant so this also has exfoliating properties but without the burning sensation the glycolic acid gives you. After a few hours of putting this tonic on, I noticed my skin was a lot less red, the dark marks somehow magically looked less dark, and the rest of my skin just looked much whiter and brighter. I really like this tonic for the morning time, especially on days where I don’t wear makeup.
Rose Tonic: This tonic is infused with rose extracts which is known to hydrate and nourish the skin. Rose extract also has redness reducing properties because of the calming effect it has on the skin. I like this toner for when my skin feels extra tight after washing my face and I feel like I need an extra boost of hydration.
I love Pixi products and I really want to try more of them when I run out of all my other skincare items.
That’s all I have for now!
