continuing on with Pixi week, today we are checking out their Glow Tonic facial toner which retails for $15! i haven't ever been sent this product, but after reading so many rave on it, i just had to try it for myself. i first bought the tiny travel size of Glow Tonic, which actually lasted a couple weeks and gave me a good idea of what it was going to do for my skin. after that, i have bought two full sized bottles from Target... i never want to be without it!
while the travel size bottle has a regular bottle opening, the full size has a nice insert that will only allow a little liquid to pass through at a time! on Pixi's website there is a giant size... i'm thinking about ordering it, but i always wait until the last minute and have to buy at Target so i don't run out. #toolazy
i have to say... the hype is true!! something about the combination of Aloe Vera, Ginseng, and 5% Glycolic Acid is just magical. i think the 5% Glycolic Acid which is a strong chemical exfoliant is the star of the show... it really keeps skin fresh by taking off a little bit with every use. my skin is looking the best it ever has, and a lot of that can be attributed to this product! my skin has a true glow to it and any acne that the retinoid gel doesn't take care of, this product has gotten under control.
my only complaint with this is that i can't use it if i'm going to be wearing makeup... somehow, the acid must react with most foundations to cause your face to really burn! i do use it in the morning when i'm not going to be wearing makeup, i haven't found it to make my face burn very much if it's just used with a moisturizer... sweat will sometimes cause a little bit, but not nearly like foundation!
i use this product immediately after cleansing my face at night (as you would with most toning face products). i prefer to use a facial cotton round to wipe it on with as opposed to a cotton ball... i think you use less product! if i use it in the morning, i find i just need to use Glow Tonic... no washing necessary! whenever i use it, i also wipe down my neck and chest in addition to my face.
so, basically... i think everyone should give this product a try, it's fantastic! if you've already tried it... let me know how it worked for you :D
Glow Tonic retails for $15. you can find it and other Pixi products at Target stores, www.Target.com, and www.PixiBeauty.com!!
Happy Wednesday! Ria :)
