I hope you’re all doing well! It’s been a busy few days for me. Unfortunately I’m now back at university for my second term. I know that things are about to get really tough academically, so I’m just taking it one day at a time for now. In anticipation of a stress induced skin crisis, a package from Pixi couldn’t have arrived at a more appropriate time. Also, I still haven’t recovered from the fact that it’s personalised – one of the many ways that Pixi go above and beyond!

I’d actually surprised if you didn’t recognise this pretty little bottle of goodness. The Pixi Glow Tonic has won a multitude of awards and continues to be a cult favourite within the beauty community, despite the vast amount of dupes being churned out (ahem, Aldi). However, I know that some people still remain unsure, wondering “is it worth the money?” “is it worth the hype?”. I too was asking all of those questions until I put it to the test and I’m finally ready to give you my thoughts!
What is it?
This is actually a bottle of the Supersize Glow Tonic, which retails at £28 and contains a whopping 500ml. There are smaller bottles available too; 100ml which costs £10 and 250ml which costs £18.
Firstly, the Pixi Glow Tonic is alcohol and cruelty free. It uses the power of Glycolic Acid to exfoliate, removing dead skin and impurities. The beauty community seems to be buzzing with all things acid at the moment (the legal kind), with tonics and cleansing pads being released like there’s no tomorrow. One of the many reasons that Glycolic Acid is so appealing, is that it helps keep skin clear, giving it a healthy glow. The tonic also features Aloe Vera which helps to soothe and hydrate the skin along with energising Ginseng which softens the skin and improves circulation. This amazing combination of ingredients work together to encourage cell renewal, for a “brighter, glowing complexion”. Say goodbye to dullness and large pores. It’s also suitable for all skin types!
How do you use it?
Pixi say that the Glow Tonic can be used both in the morning and at night or when needed. First, cleanse your skin. Then soak a cotton pad in tonic, sweep it across the face and neck – you don’t want this in your eyes so avoid that area! Follow with a serum or a moisturiser, however I recommend using something high in SPF to protect my skin after using any acid.
Is it worth the hype?
I have to say that without a doubt, the Pixi Glow Tonic is worth the hype. Almost immediately after using it, I noticed a difference. My skin looks brighter, the appearance of my pores has been minimised and I’m having less breakouts. I absolutely love using this in my skincare routine, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. I use it daily and I haven’t experienced any irritation whatsoever. I was initially worried it might make me more oily but it hasn’t. It doesn’t surprise me that it’s a bestseller – it’s amazing.
