Ok, so this cult product Glow Tonic by Pixi By Petra wont make you live forever, but it might knock a few years off your skin age. The oxygenating, exfoliating facial glow tonic will help tone, firm and tighten your skin by removing dead skin cells for healthier looking skin. It is infused with Witch Hazel to minimise pores, Aloe Vera to soothe, Ginseng and Fructose to brighten, and it’s alcohol free.
I have heard quite a lot of hype about this product on social media so I was interested in finding out whether it really works. Also, any followers of this blog, know that my beauty mission is to have glowing skin a la Jennifer Lopez (J Glow, as I like to call her) so anything that promises to make me glow, is definitely worth a go.
After cleansing, add a few drops onto a cotton pad and apply to the skin, avoiding the eye area. I initially found it too strong, and it made my eyes water, so I was advised to wet the cotton pad with cold water first, and then add a few drops. This totally worked, and after a few weeks of use, my skin felt amazingly soft, and looked brighter.
Unfortunately, just before Christmas, I developed eczema around my eye as a result of an allergic reaction from an eyeshadow which lasted for months. It was a terrible time – I was in so much pain and was too embarrassment too leave the house. Obviously, I had to go to work, but I was so depressed. I even had to ditch my eye makeup as well as every other beauty product on my shelf. The reaction has finally cleared, leaving my skin is quite sensitive. Glow Tonic has been perfect to brighten my dull winter skin without me having to use a grainy exfoliator which would irritate my eye area. I’ve only been using it week, but I can already see the difference.
I would recommend this Glow Tonic to anyone with normal, to oily/trouble skin but you wont see immediate results, and it could cause irritation to sensitive skin, especially your eyes.
Persist with the product like me, and dilute with water. You will definitely see the results.
