Welcome back to fashioneyesta.com!
Today I have a new skincare blog post for you, because you all know how much I love my skincare! Todays blog is going to be focusing on probably one of the most hyped about beauty products of all time and that is the Pixi Glow Tonic.
This stuff has won countless awards and I can’t think of a single blogger that I follow who hasn’t mentioned this product at some point. But some of you may be wondering is it worth the hype? Is it actually worth parting with your cash for? Well today I’m going to be giving you some of my thoughts on it and if I think it is worth buying.
Now honesty is the best policy with me, so I will also mention that I did very kindly get sent a new Glow Tonic from Pixi as a press release. It had even been personalised with my own name on it reading ‘Emily’s Glow Tonic.’ Pixi do the most adorable press releases ever and I cannot get over this latest one. But, this no way impacts on my review, I always give honest reviews and try to discuss the positives. I’ve gone through a fair few bottles over the past year, ever since receiving it in a skincare gift set for Christmas. I’ve been a fan of it for a while now. So I think you can already take a guess at what my thoughts on the Glow Tonic are going to be.
Lets first go into the ingredients, the Glow Tonic is alcohol free and cruelty free. It’s made with Glycolic Acid which helps to clarify the skin and remove dead skin and impurities from the skin. Glycolic Acid works wonders for oily and blemish prone skin as it helps to keep the skin clear and to promote more of a clear, healthy appearance to the complexion. It also contains soothing Aloe Vera which helps with any inflammation or redness. Ginseng helps to soften the skin to keep it feeling smooth. This is a fantastic cocktail of ingredients which makes it perfect to use on any skin type whether you have mature, combination, dry, sensitive or oily skin.
For those of you who haven’t used a toner or who aren’t sure how they work. They are basically something you use after you cleanse and before you apply your moisturiser. You take a few drops on a cotton pad and apply to dry skin in gentle wiping motions. It helps to remove any excess impurities, sebum or filaments. It’s a key part of your skincare routine if you want to help prevent blackheads and open pores. It also serves very well if you are someone who wears a lot of base makeup as you can develop blocked pores if you don’t cleanse properly.
One thing I love most about Glow Tonic when pitted others that I have used is how soothing and gentle it is to use on the skin. A lot of other toners I have used have a lot of very astringent ingredients in them or alcohol, for some reason they always leave my skin feeling really dry and tight. I feel as if I have to put on a bucket load of moisturiser on after using them, but not with Glow Tonic.
Glow Tonic is really gentle on the skin, I use it as a toner both in the morning and evening. The combination of ingredients makes it clarifying and yet softening on the skin, its ideal for my problematic combination skin which is prone to getting oily on the t-zone and dry in other places. I use it all throughout the year, in fact its one of the only skincare products that never really changes regardless of what the season is. But, the fact it has no alcohol is particularly beneficial for the colder months when our skin is prone to drying.
It has a very delicate scent to it, it isn’t heavily perfumed and once it leaves my skin feeling so soft and cleansed. I have definitely noticed improvements to my skin since using it, it looks clearer and feels lot more comfortable since I have been using it. It really seems to have balanced out my skin. I do have a lot of issues with hormonal breakouts that get really red and irritated. This works well for that as the Aloe Vera helps to ease the redness and the inflammation. It doesn’t necessarily help to deeply penetrate or target spots so to speak, but it does help to take the irritation down. I find that now I only get the odd one or two pimples, before I would get a flock of then appear on my forehead. But, since using this I have found that my hormonal breakouts are nowhere near as bad as they once were.
Personally, I would say this is a great product to use for people with dry skin or people who experience inflammation or redness. It’s a very mild and gentle formula and works very well to help target irritation or redness. I really love using this product on my troublesome skin, it has really improved the texture of my skin and given my skin a little extra boost. My skin does look a lot clearer and brighter and this has become a regular part of my skincare routine.
Is It Worth It?
I would say that its worth trying it out once if you are skeptical, Pixi do small sizes and sample sizes in their stores. So it might be worth getting hold of one to experiment to see if it works for your skin type. The Glow Tonic comes in a variety of sizes, so you can always invest in a larger size.
In short, do I think its worth the hype? Personally for me and my skin type, yes.
So that concludes todays blog post, I really hope you enjoyed it. Have you tried the Pixi Glow Tonic? Do you think its worth the hype? Let me know your thoughts on it below in the comments.
