Pixi Glow Tonic, REVIEW

The brand:

Pixi are a British/American beauty brand. Completely cruelty free, and very clear on their status as a non-animal testing brand. No other third parties test their products, and they have lots of vegan options. They are affordable, but their products contain quality ingredients. Their packaging is sleek but not unnecessarily heavy. No ‘fluff’ with them.

The product:

Glycolic acid toner

Who can use it:

Everyone except those very sensitive to acid. If you are dull or dry and need ‘glow’ then this is for you. Or if you just want a gentle exfoliator.


Water/Aqua/Eau, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycolic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Hexylene Glycol, Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose, Urea, Dextrin, Alanine, Glutamic Acid, Aspartic Acid, Hexyl Nicotinate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Biotin, Panthenol, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Caramel, Red 4 (CI 14700)

Not in the ingredients:

animal derived ingredients, parabens, alcohol

Problematic ingredients?:

fragrance. Isn’t a problem for most, though


The classic bottle, screw top lid. Most people dispense the liquid onto a cotton pad, but I tend to apply cologne style

How to use:

Morning or evening straight after cleansing. I use about 3/4 times a week. Use SPF after.

How much:

£18 for 250ml

The Good:

This acid really triggered the popularity of exfoliating acids in the market. It’s the original Pixi Tonic, and my go to glycolic toner. It’s in an alcohol free base so I experience no drying. This product is great for a dull and dry skin – it’s name describes it perfectly. GLOW. Ideal for maturer skins. That being said, I’m young and oily so glow isn’t my priority, but this is easily one of my most used acids. It exfoliates dead skin cells, reduces pigmentation, clears skin and is a great daily and mild acid.

The Bad:

Nothing really. Reasonable price, universal, effective.


Would recommend to anyone I know.

Available from BLOODY EVERYWHERE. Cult Beauty, M&S, Lookfantastic,
