Pixi is known for their cult favourite Glow Tonic, which originally made the brand take off the ground. The Pixi Glow Tonic Serum is part of the Pixi Glow collection, and is a serum version of their Glow Tonic. Back when the Pixi Glow Tonic first took off, you could only order it over the phone or instore at their Covent Garden store, and it’s amazing how big the brand has now become.
Pixi Glow Tonic Serum
“Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic Serum hydrates and nourishes your skin while providing gentle exfoliation to achieve a smooth, balanced and radiant complexion.“
The Pixi Glow Tonic Serum is £26 and contains 30ml of product within a green glass bottle, with a glass pipette dispenser. The Pixi Glow Tonic Serum is designed to be the third step in your skincare routine, and has a lightweight formula that infuses your skin with beneficial nutrients while setting the stage for the final phase of your daily routine.
Pixi recommend first using one of their cleansers, followed by one of their toners and then following with this Pixi Glow Tonic Serum. The directions are nice and simple, in that you massage two to three drops of Glow Tonic Serum onto clean, dry skin.
The serum has almost an oil-like consistency, in that it’s runny and viscous making it easy to spread over the skin. The Glow Tonic is an exfoliative toner which does a nice job at sloughing away dead skin cells, and helping improve textural issues.
I find this Pixi Glow Tonic Serum to be a lot milder than I thought it would be. It does a nice job at leaving my skin feeling nourished and smooth, but it doesn’t refine the skin like it claims. I find the Glow Tonic to be more effective, but if you don’t have dry skin, and dry patches, you might find the formula to be more effective.
I like my exfoliative toners and serums to improve the texture of my dry patches, and sadly I just didn’t find that to be the case with this particular serum. I think it would be perfect for super sensitive skin, and those that want a serum to soften and nourish without refining textural issues, but I’m looking forward to trying their new Clarity range as I feel that might be a little more effective in comparison.
