The Secret is Out:  A Cult-Favorite Toner Launches Stateside

~Pixi’s Glow Tonic

Streaming over the Internet this month is a cult-favorite product from the U.K. that is creating quite a stir as it launches here in the states: Pixi's Glow Tonic. Apparently, if you were to walk into any Pixi outlet in London, there is a very good chance it will be sold out. It is handmade and not mass-produced so it takes longer to restock.

imageThis alcohol-free liquid potion is made with aloe vera, which makes it super-hydrating--- It is perfect for this time of year when your skin begins to feel dry and lackluster. But that's not all, it also contains: witch hazel for tightening, and a low level addition of glycolic acid to exfoliate. But the real secret ingredient is GINSENG. This potent extract has been used for many years in medicine to activate circulation, ramp up energy levels, and even boost the immune system.

I've yet to try it, but this product sounds intriguing to me to use right after workouts when I don't want to suds up again. Besides restoring the glow, which my research has found it does so beautifully, it also reduces the amount of breakouts, probably because it isn't over drying the skin, clogging pores, which is a huge reason breakouts occur.

I particularly love the gentle exfoliating properties, it definitely helps ignite the products you use right afterwards creating the perfect canvas, producing that 'glow' we so love.

I hope to beat you to the chase, and grab one at my next Target outing. It is already out-of-stock on their site, I have a feeling this isn't going to be easy to find.

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.
