Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner Review

Hey! I’ll be doing a full skincare post about basic steps soon and this is a 2-in-1 product I use daily. It deserves praise for saving my skin while it was recovering from an allergy. Let me explain the two features it possesses first.

1. Exfoliation

I used scrubs to slough off dead skin but then I learned how manual scrubbing (natural or synthetic) can create tears in the skin even if you’re gentle. I’d like to remind you that microbeads found in popular scrubs are extremely dangerous to the environment and have been banned in several countries. Removing dead skin is important to prevent acne and flaky skin. The glycolic acid in Pixi Glow Tonic removes it chemically so it’s super gentle.

2. Toner

I used to have that blue Clean & Clear toner which I felt was too harsh and I hated its smell. I wanted an alternative. Pixi Glow Tonic is an amazing toner. You may use it day and night to maintain the natural acidic pH of your skin. In case you’re unaware, soaps and face washes are alkaline/ basic in nature and many have free alkali which dries out your skin. If your skin’s natural acidic pH is not maintained it will dry out and become acne prone. It ruins everything, trust me.

This product also has aloe vera and ginseng extracts to nourish your skin. It promotes your skin’s health and your can feel the difference after a single use.
