Pixi Glow Tonic

You've probably heard about the Pixi Glow Tonic plenty of times already. It's up there in almost all favourites, everyone recommends it and simply put it made every skincare enthusiast go "ga-ga". And with good reason! I mean, come on....it is called GLOW TONIC! 

The skincare junkie in me couldn't wait for much longer, could she? It's a shame Pixi Skintreats isn't avaiable in India yet (Why?!Oh why?!), but there are plenty of websites/online sellers from whom you can get a hold of this golden liquid.

Before I talk about the Glow Tonic any further, know this : IT IS AN EXFOLIATING TONER with 5% GLYCOLIC ACID. 
Read our full post about Chemical Exfoliation HERE

I quite like the no nonsense simple bottle it comes in. There are different sizes available (15ml, 100ml, 250ml), so like me you can get hold of a smaller bottle to try out. 

Ingredients : 

Water/Aqua/Eau, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycolic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Hexylene Glycol, Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose, Urea, Dextrin, Alanine, Glutamic Acid, Aspartic Acid, Hexyl Nicotinate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Biotin, Panthenol, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Caramel, Red 4 (CI 14700). 250ml/ 8.5 fl. oz.

I like how Aloe, Glycolic acid, Witchazel are all up in ingredient list. 
(I have become increasingly aware of always reading the ingredient list & the order of things. The higher up an ingredient in the list, the greater the percentage present in the product).

Glycolic acid helps to loosen the dead skin thus exfoliating. generally wake up to a smoother & softer skin the next morning.

With time and consistent use AHA (glycolic acid) also helps to reduce pigmentation & dark spots. But please remember this will not be seen with just a few uses. 

Keep in mind that you need to wear sunscreen everyday...religiously since this is an AHA exfoliating product. Suncreen every single day! 

 Price : 18$ for 250ml
             10$ for 100ml
             5$ for 15ml

If you are looking for a product that can help reduce dullness & uneven texture, especially for normal-dry skin then the Glow Tonic is worth checking out
The tonic is quite gentle & alcohol free so it is suited for all skin types.

But, if you have extremely extremely sensitive skin & glycolic acid has not worked out for you in the past, just tread with some caution and please do a patch test
