Taking care of your skin this time of year can make the difference between a dull, grey and lacklustre complexion and keeping a healthy glow well past the summer month’s right into thermal-undies territory. Once upon a time we used to fill our boots with this little gem when visiting London, but luckily for us Pixi have extended their product line to Ireland where it’s now available at M&S beauty halls (and online where they now ship to Ireland). I seriously believe this little bottle may be responsible for the recent toner revival we’ve been seeing with so many skincare brands, but to say that this is just a toner would be selling it short.
Think of it as a post-cleanse liquid exfoliant, that delivers on the ‘glow’ bit. Enriched with a natural glycolic acid that not only lifts of cleanser and any remaining makeup residue, but also shifts dead skin cells revealing healthy, bright, new skin beneath yes it is as good as it sounds!). I always find duller skin in winter needs a little helping hand to get its glow back, and this is just the ticket.
Harsh and abrasive as the acid bit sounds, this is actually laced with ginseng to soothe, witch hazel to promote firming properties in the skins elastin and horse chestnut to increase circulation. This is a great product not just for winter skincare but also if you suffer from sun damaged skin, blemishes or are starting to see the beginnings of fine lines (stay calm!).
Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic is available from M&S beauty hall priced €23.50
