One of my all-time favourite beauty products, the Pixi Glow Tonic, had a cheeky makeover quite recently (don’t worry, it’s just the packaging that has changed, the stuff inside is just as ace as ever) and I thought what better time to chat to you all about what it is that makes this product so whiz-bang special.
For those of you that don’t know much about acid exfoliators, I’ve done a whole post on ’em which you can read here, but essentially they buff away your dead skin cells and all that other nasty stuff you might normally scrub away using natural acids like salicylic, glycolic, lactic and so on. Rather than being abrasive on your skin like a beady scrub can be, they work in a different way to leave you with radiant, glowing skin and this marvel from Pixi is, in my opinion, one of the best ones out there.
Full to the brim with good-for-you natural ingredients including aloe vera, witch hazel and horse chestnut, it does a brilliant job of ridding your skin of any nasty bits, while ensuring it isn’t left feeling stripped or dry. For anyone out there who is a fan of the P50 Biologique Recherche, this is a much cheaper alternative that will leave you with very similar, superb results.
In terms of its snazzy new packaging, I’m actually a big fan. While I always love a pump on a product, the new pump-free bottle is far more easy to transport – plus you don’t lose a single ml of product. In other words, while the Glow Tonic continues to be one of Pixi’s best-sellers, they haven’t tried to grab an extra buck from you by changing the packaging and giving you less product, or by whacking up the price; it still rings in at a very reasonable £16.
Thanks Pixi people, this one’s a real winner.
