Can you tell I have been loving Friends lately? Probably. But do you know what I’ve been loving as well? A notorious product new in my skincare routine. The Pixi Glow Tonic. I had heard about this product for years and had always wanted to try it. As I have very sensitive skin and keratosis pilaris on my face, I had been putting off buying it in fear of it burning my face and worsening it all. But when I was at Sephora the other day shopping (you can check what I bought here) and saw this mini version – and how cute it was – I decided to go for it.
The Pixi Glow Tonic is a exfoliating toner that helps remove dead skin cells to reveal a brighter complexion. This product helps to tone, brighten and unify the skin.
What I can tell you is that I wasn’t expecting such quick results. Usually it can take a week or a few weeks to actually be able to see results with certain products, but with this, within 3 days I could see a difference. By face was brighter, smoother, scars were fading way more quickly than usual and the most important for me : it was helping to get rid of my keratosis. Keratosis pilaris or « chicken skin » is basically a painless skin condition where your skin produces too much keratin which blocks the opening of the hair follicles and creates small red bumps on the skin. I have it on my upper arms – where it’s the worst -and a little bit on the front of my legs, my face and forearms. I had read that acids can help and heard good things about the Pixi Glow Tonic but I have to say it has made a massive difference on my face.
After 1 week-
As you can see the redness as gone down massively and I have way less keratosis and blemish scars. My skin is so much less bumpy and looks brighter. My left cheek is still always the the most « problematic » one for some reason, maybe because I’m right handed and touch it more probably but even so, it has improved a lot.
Because the Pixi Glow tonic helps to exfoliate chemically to get rid of dead skin cells thanks to acids, it makes the skin look brighter and means that I get way less keratin buildup, and therefore smoother, less red cheeks. Yay! I also notice that when I break out, the scaring is way quicker than usual and I have less breakouts all together since using it for the past month. Of course, breakouts also depend on your diet so I make sure to limit the « bad food » I eat to prevent them as well. Skincare comes from the inside out as well.
Overall, I am so impressed and happy with this product. I’ve been using it on a cotton pad daily, every other day on my entire face, and everyday on my cheek where I get keratosis as well as on my arms and upper legs to see how well it will get rid of the keratosis there as well. My upper arms are the worst areas but I can still see an improvement so I’m going to keep using it and hope I can where sleeveless shirts soon without having people asking about it constantly. My face looks so much brighter and healthier and it has helped me feel more confident when I am makeup less as well which is awesome. I will definitely get a full size when this one runs out – which won’t be for a while because I have so much left still.
