may favourite: pixi glow tonic

If you know anything about me you will know I’m a beauty maximalist. If you didn’t know that, hello I’m Ruby and I’m obsessed with skincare. I thought I’d start to share a favourite product here each month because... why not... and here goes.

I really tried not to think too hard about this because it makes me second guess myself. There are so many beauty products I could talk about but the first that came to mind was the Pixi Glow Tonic, and I’m sticking to it!




This product has been in my collection for years and it never does me dirty. I’ve been using it pretty religiously on my reusable cotton rounds and my skin is looking good. When I double cleanse, tone with this and then apply an oil before bed my skin is very much under control.

Pixi Glow Tonic is a 5% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Toner. Which means it is a chemical exfoliator, as opposed to a physical one with beads in it. A comparable product would be the Glossier's Solution or Biologique Recherche P50. Personally, I love the Pixi product for its price and the smell. Or lack thereof of smell. I do not have sensitive skin so I use this pretty much daily. If you are just starting out with a chemical exfoliator I'd try it maybe twice a week and build up to every other day.

Using a chemical exfoliator can make you more sensitive to sun exposure. I only use this product during my nighttime routine and I always use SPF in the morning (currently I'm using the Glossier Invisible Shield but I'm on the hunt for a new one).


It’s not a new product but that does not mean we should not be talking about it. It really does get rid of skin texture and it’s at a drugstore price!

Tweet me @rubes_moods and talk to me about the Pixi Glow Tonic! Not spon of course, wish it was.
