Pixi Glow Tonic - Exfoliating Toner (review)

Pixi Glow Tonic
This exfoliating toner helps to brighten the complexion resulting in a healthy glow. Formulated with 5% glycolic acid, Glow Tonic exfoliates, brightens and smoothes the skintone and texture. Aloe vera, ginseng, and botanical extracts work together to nourish and treat your skin revealing an improved complexion. Alcohol-free and gentle on all skin types




This is one of those products that gives visible results and when I say visible results, I mean almost within 2-3 uses. The product delivers. 

Color: Pale Orange/Peach

Texture and Consistency: Thin, non sticky, watery

Scent: Floral and smells wonderful. I have no aversion to this pleasant smelling toner. It does not smell anywhere close to anything chemical.

Application: I apply it at night on clean face, before applying any moisturizer or serums. Earlier I used to drench a cotton pad with this and spread it all over my face, but I realized that wasted lot of the product. Now, I take it on palms of my hand and apply it directly. The product is just like water in consistency, so this method can be little messy, but I still find this uses less product.

Feel and Effect on Skin: This is a very gentle exfoliating toner. It dries completely in 20 seconds or so. It is not at all sticky or tacky. It sinks in completely and does not just sits on top of the skin. There is no dryness or stretching of skin. I find it pretty comfortable.

Packaging: The product comes in a plastic bottle with no dispenser.


Verdict: I just love how this stuff works. I wake up with much clear, glowing skin. The skin appears more even in texture as well as skin tone. I have noticed some lightening with my pigmentation after using it continuously for a month. The toner contains 5% Glycolic Acid helps in mild exfoliation thus revealing a clear skin but making the skin more sensitive to sun. So it is advisable to use at night and then wear sunscreen the next morning. The Aloe Vera helps to moisturize the skin and ginseng helps in lightening pigmentation. 

In the past I have tried Clinique Clarifying Lotion. It is a toner, but I don't know why is it called lotion. It was a nice product, but I found it too drying. Maybe I chose the wrong one. The Lancome Tonique Radiance Clarifying Exfoliating Toner was an amazing one, but I don't have the bottle and so I have no pictures to support a review post. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is my newest pick and I am super excited to try that one. 

This Pixi Glow Tonic is an excellent product and one of the best exfoliating toners I have used.
