Cult Product: Pixi Glow Tonic


Pixi Glow TonicI ordered Pixi Glow Tonic as soon as it went on sale online. Until recently it was a product that only Londoners could easily get their hands on in the Pixi Boutique. If you are  a beauty buff you have probably heard about this product but if you haven’t, here is the lowdown: it is a gentle, oil-free, alcohol-free exfoliating facial toner. It is rich in aloe vera and therefore doesn’t irritate the skin. It also contains natural ingredients like ginseng, witch hazel, glycolic acid and horse chestnut to tone, firm, soften, exfoliate and stimulate circulation in the skin. What it doesn’t contain is artificial colours, fragrances or fillers.

Pixi is a lovely, natural brand created 10 years ago by Petra Strand who prides herself on each of her products being multitasking, flaw-fixing, youth-enhancing and can be applied easily and quickly. Petra has a passion for skincare and generates products infused with botanicals and beneficial ingredients.

I have been using Pixi Glow Tonic twice a day, every day for the past two months and I have really been impressed with the results. I have combination – oily skin and get dry, flaky patches, especially around my chin and adding this toner to my daily skincare routine has helped a lot. I also found that the Glow Tonic has helped to minimize the dark spots I had on my cheeks, curtsey of some long gone acne. Before the Pixi Glow Tonic I used the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator but as it contains quite a lot of alcohol I didn’t really want to use it every day. It is still a great product but one I use only two to three times a week now.

The Pixi Glow Tonic is a brilliant toner and is suitable for most skin types, maybe avoid it if your skin is sensitive. I cannot say enough good things about it and think that everyone should have some type of exfoliating toner in their skincare stash. It made a huge difference to my skin and I will definitely be re-purchasing it.

    This sounds lovely!!

    Ooh I’ve heard about this and now want to try it… Damn you ladies!


      Hehe, sorry! It is really good though! And with this many natural ingredients it is practically medicine, so no need to feel bad :P

    Its certainly spendy, I am in two minds whether to order this


      I know, it’s not exactly cheap for a toner but it’s much cheaper than the Claris one & Lotion P50 (very similar product but costs about £40) :) it was worth it for me but as it is a toner you do use it up fairly quickly.

    So happy I discovered your blog today girls! I use the Clarins toner too but I’ve been looking for something I can use everyday as the exfoliating element in the Clarins can be quite stripping of my skin I find if I use it everday. This sounds perfect, just what I’ve been looking for! I heard great things about the Pixie products and I happen to be jetting into London at the end of March so this will most def be coming home with me :)



      Great to hear you found what you were looking for on the blog :) very jealous of your trip to London! I’m dying to try more pixi products & would love to have a rummage around their shop… x
