Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner Review | Life with Lauren

* I have been sent glow tonic in the past, however I have since repurchased and all opinions are 100% my own. 

The exfoliating toner ‘Pixi Glow Tonic’ is one of the most loved products out there at the minute. It contains 5% Glycolic Acid and aims to brighten and tone the skin without being too harsh. If you look closely at the ingredients, it contains Aloe which helps with healing and is anti-inflammatory. The Glycolic Acid is what exfoliates the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. 

Does it actually work? Does it exfoliate your skin? 

The Pixi Glow Tonic is a weaker exfoliant which makes it perfect for sensitive skin. It has a PH of 4-5 but I would recommend using it just once a day so that your skin doesn’t become too dry! Since using this, I have noticed a difference in my skin. Obviously it’s not a huge difference as it is just a toner so it won’t work miracles by itself but it definitely has left my skin looking brighter! 

What does it smell and look like? 

It smells quite floral and personally I like that however I don’t feel it is needed in a product like this. It’s very watery in consistency but does dry very quickly on the skin so you don’t even feel like you’ve got anything on which I love! The website says to use a cotton pad to apply the product however I would recommend putting it straight on your hands and applying it that way as a cotton pad will just absorb most of it. 

What skin types is it suitable for? Where would a toner come in my skincare routine? 

Pixi claims it is for all skin types and I would definitely agree. It is not a harsh exfoliating toner so would be perfect for oily, combination dry and even sensitive skin too. It should be used after cleansing but before any other serums and moisturisers. You also need to follow up with an SPF as the Glycolic Acid makes your skin more susceptible to sun damage.

Would I recommend it? What do I rate it out of 10?

100% I would recommend it. Pixi do a 250ml bottle which is great and I have repurchased this twice already! As far as a rating is concerned, I would go for a 9/10 and the only thing that knocks it down is the added fragrance which I don’t feel is needed! Overall, it’s a great product and a definite staple in my routine. 


  1. I love pretty much all the Pixi products I have ever used and the glow tonic is fantastic x
