|PIXI SKIN TREATS – GLOW COLLECTION ♥|
The Glow Tonic Family has been expanded into a variety of items design to enhance your inner glow at all stages of applying your skincare. You can use items individually or enhance your daily routine by incorporating all of them.
Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel (135ml)
A purifying and hydrating cleansing gel that removes all pollutants and contaminants while brightening your skin and improves moisture retention. Apply daily before toning and any serum or essence and moisturising. This gel cleanser was a new concept to me, I was very surprised to find when using it that there is no lathering effect, it remains strictly a gel concept. This cleanser contains a innovative and unique blend of botanicals, Horse Chestnut Extract, Aloe Vera, Ginseng, Glycolic acid and Moiseclean technology to help cleanse your skin of impurities whilst maintaining a healthy glow. Apply a small amount to damp skin and gently massage for 20-30 seconds before rinsing.
Glow Tonic (100ml)
Okay so in my opinion, this particular product doesn’t even need an introduction given it’s award winning status but just in case this is a new product for you, Pixi’s Glow Tonic is an exfoliating and cleansing facial toner, and an impressive one at that. A unique, beloved formula, Glow Tonic is enriched with 5% Glycolic Acid that aid the cleansing and removal of impurities from your pores. Aloe Vera soothes and boosts hydration, while Red Ginseng (a herb widely used in Korean medicine) boasts a whole variety of properties that are beneficial to the skin. Use daily after cleansing (morning or evening). I usually add drops to a cotton pad and lightly wipe my face, jawline and neck (don’t use on your eye area). Follow with moisturiser.
Price: 15ml £5, 100ml£10, 250ml £18
Glow Tonic Serum (30ml)
So, my skin is sensitive but combination, slightly more so on the dry side if I had to choose. I also notice this much more in the winter. As a result of this, any new facial products that can help improve and retain moisture are a must! Of this entire collection, this is the product I use sparingly not every day). This isn’t because I don’t like the serum, but more so because I occasionally find I have trouble layering makeup on top of it, a little goes a long way so use sparingly, a couple of drops at most! The serum gently exfoliates whilst providing nourishment and hydration leaving your skin soft, moist and supple. The serum contains, Aloe Vera to soothe, Glycolic Acid purifies and Ginseng revitalises and neutralises skin.
pHenomenal Gel (50ml)
This has fast become a favourite of mine, I absolutely love it! Water based moisturisers are amazing for providing instant hydration and this one provides additional benefits. Boasting balancing/neutralising properties, this moisturises, tones, soothes and keeps your pH levels balanced, leaving your complexion ready for makeup application. A notable addition of Horse Chestnut extract that tones while soothing, and Witch Hazel also tones and provides a more even complexion. Even better, you only need a pea size amount for your entire face as again, a little goes a long way.
Okay so I wasn’t sure about a stick moisturiser, only because I’ve never owned one! A travel-friendly stick moisturiser, designed to instantly moisturise lips, face, body, even hair on the go. The stick contains Vitamin D2, a powerful antioxidant that protects and prevents damage. In addition to Vitamin D2, this product contains other vitamins, gentle acids,
Okay, so you guys are probably getting tired of me saying this buy now but as it’s basically the ‘glow tonic’ collection and there’s a reason Glow Tonic is a cult favourite, a pinnacle product within the Pixi collection vaults, available from travel size up to super size! This collection contains a variety of products that will become crucial to your makeup routine in no time! For me it’s been the glow tonic, cleansing gel and pHenomenal gel. Let me know what yours are!!
