If you’re Target obsessed like we are you probably find yourself perusing through their extensive beauty aisles. I know I’m guilty of spending way too much time browsing through the Indie brand selection and I’ve found some true gems in those shelves. One of my most prized Target finds is the Pixi Glow Tonic. This cult-favorite toner plays a massive role in my skin’s transformation from dull to glowy and I find myself coming back to it every time!
What is the Pixi Glow Tonic and what does it do?
The Pixi Glow Tonic is super concentrated, facial toner that deep cleans pores by removing excess oil, dirt and impurities. Pixi’s Glow Tonic formula has 5% glycolic acid that cleanses impurities from your pores, and it has aloe vera, which soothes and hydrates your skin. It’s also infused with red ginseng, which helps to protect and energize your skin. It’s also oil-free and alcohol-free making it non-comedogenic and perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. Annnnd it’s also cruelty-free. WOOOO.
How and when to use it?
You can use the Glow Tonic daily after cleansing your skin with a face wash. We use this cleanser.
Use it either in the AM and PM or when needed. We recommend using it in the evening so your face can recover from the high concentration of Glycolic Acid. Also, remember to always wear sunscreen when you are using this product (or pretty much anytime.)
- Step 1: Cleanse your face with your favorite face wash.
- Step 2: Saturate a cotton pad with the Pixi Glow Tonic and gently pat across your face, neck, and décolletage taking care to avoid the eye area.
- Step 3: Follow with your favorite serums and moisturizers.
What are the active ingredients and what do they do?
The main purpose of the 5% Glycolic Acid (an exfoliating alpha hydroxy acid) is to exfoliate and gently remove dead skin cells. Over time, your skin will feel smoother, your pores will be refined and overall you’ll have more luminous healthier-looking skin! Along with the Glycolic Acid, the toner also has Ginseng which helps improves circulation and energizes the skin.
Lastly, there is Aloe Vera which assists in soothing and hydrating the skin.
Why I love the Glow Tonic
I attribute my makeup-free skin’s glow to this toner. I kid you not, I have used the Pixi Glow Tonic for 2+ years and whenever I take a break from it, I notice a visible difference in the smoothness and radiance of my skin. It removes dead skin cells, excess oil, and gross old makeup that’s lodged deep into your pores. But it doesn’t overly strip your skin’s natural oils either. It’s simple and effective. What’s not to love, it’s like the perfect medium! As someone with acne-prone skin that’s sensitive AF, this toner has been an easy savior. It has a cult following for a reason!
