Pixi Glow Tonic Review-
I have always been a toner fanatic & my CTM routine is never complete without a good toner 🙂 I recently used up a huge 400ml bottle of my old HG toner from Clinique & was hunting for a new one because the high alcohol content in the Clinique one was not going down very well in this dry Pune weather anymore 😐 My skin was badly dehydrated & I was almost going to revert to my fail-safe rose water when I stumbled upon an Instagram seller selling this cult toner- the glow tonic from Pixi *_* Is it worth the hype?

My take on the Pixi Glow Tonic-
The glow tonic comes in a bright orange colored transparent sturdy plastic bottle with mint green colored cap & mint accents along with a convenient nozzle opening. Very easy to use but I have to pour some out in a smaller bottle if I want to travel with it- smaller travel sized bottles are not available here 🙁
The tonic is colorless, runny & feels like water when I saturate a cotton round with it & sweep gently across my face. It has no stinging or cooling feel & instead feels very mild, hydrating & instantly wipes off the remnant dirt & grime from the skin without stripping it at all <3 My skin immediately feels smoother, softer without any stretchy/dry feeling!
I have been using this toner for a month now every night before I got to bed & can honestly say that I have never seen my breakouts shrinking faster or my skin feeling smoother without a proper grainy scrub! My skin certainly looks brighter, more radiant, not at all dehydrated & best of all? Smoother than ever!
The toner has a mild rosy fragrance which fades away within moments & does not cause any sort of irritation for sensitive noses.
Pros of the Pixi Glow Tonic:
1> Sturdy fuss free bottle packaging with nozzle opening 🙂
2> Mild, watery consistency- neither stripping nor heavy/greasy.
3> Skin immediately feels & looks smooth & soft <3
4> My break outs shrink faster & skin looks so smooth & radiant without using any physical scrub.
5> Contains glycolic acid which helps in gentle exfoliation.
Cons of the Pixi Glow Tonic:
Availability in India is the biggest issue 🙁
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the Pixi Glow Tonic?
Pixi Glow Tonic has been a game-changer for my dry-combination skin- it is mild, effective in exfoliation, comes packed with glycolic acid which tones & brightens the skin without stripping it at all.
