The Pixi Glow Tonic is a revolutionary product that is a total game-changer. The best-selling, skincare classic that comes in the iconic transparent orange bottle is a non-drying formula which exfoliates dead skin cells, using the power of gentle Glycolic acid. Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Ferne McCann uses it and we just can't get enough of the refreshing toner - it's like magic in a bottle, instantly replenishing your skin as soon as you start adding it to your skincare regime. So you can imagine our delight when we heard that Pixi has produced a brand new version of the GT, but this time with the new ingredient of retinol called Pixi Retinol Tonic, Advance Youth Preserving Toner. Retinol is mainly used in anti-ageing night creams as it has been proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and amps up the collagen production in your skin, giving an all-over, plumped-up, youthful look.
Retinol is having a bit of a skincare moment right now. HELLO! got the lowdown on the wrinkle busting skincare ingredient in January when we spoke to Anjali Mahto, Consultant Dermatologist at the Cadogan Clinic. "Retinoids are a class of compounds derived from vitamin A, which is commonly used in skincare," says Dr Mahto. "Scientific studies (mainly on Tretinoin - which is generally a prescription-only retinoid) show that they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation after 12 weeks of use."
The new toner on the block is seen as a preserving tonic which gives your face a natural glow. The combination of powerful antioxidants and botanicals replenish the skin for a smoother, soft-to-touch appearance.
It’s super easy to use too, simply saturate a cotton pad with the toner and sweep across the face, neck and décolletage, following with your regular moisturiser daily. The combining ingredients of Jasmine Flower gently heals and balances damaged skin too. It is officially released on 28 July and we are in the queue already…
