My skin type: Combination
As mentioned in previous posts, skincare is the most important part of makeup application. Without a great skincare foundation, you will not have a seamless makeup application. Today I am bringing you a (long overdue) review of the Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner.
This past August, this baby came to the United States from Europe. Glow Tonic was a very anticipated product, since before August, it was only sold online or in a land far far away from us. As you can see my bottle is hitting the bottom, therefore, I have plenty of thoughts on how I feel about this product.
To start off, this toner is alcohol-free and made for all skin types. Its function is to firm, tighten and remove dead skin cells to give you a healthy glow. Some of its key ingredients include, aloe vera, ginseng and the very loved glycolic acid (5%). Glycolic acid is perfect if you're looking to brighten up your skin and get rid of skin discoloration since it is an exfoliator and removes the outer layer of dead skin cells.
My Thoughts: Initially, I began to use this product twice a day, since I wanted to see its benefits right away. To apply, I simply used a cotton round. After about 2-3 weeks of using it twice daily, I began to notice a great amount of change in my skin. It was a lot brighter, firm and my discoloration was close to none. However, I began to also notice that my skin was getting dryer than normal. I have a combination skin type so I now went from using it twice to once a day. I prefer to use it at night before bed because I feel it can work its magic when I go to sleep and I wake up with radiant skin.
Final thoughts: I give this product five stars. This has become one of my favorite products in my skincare regime and I can't picture my routine without it. I definitely recommend being careful if you have dry skin, because it might dry it out even more if used excessively. I have included a shopable photo down below of the product. I also included its sister product, the Glow Mist. I have been wanting to try it out, let me know if you have, I have only heard great things! Let me know your thoughts and if you end up trying out the Glow Tonic!
Love, Jomy! Xx
