Ever since I hopped onto the exfoliating toner bandwagon a while ago starting with one from Hada Labo and then continuing with the REN Skincare Clarimatte toner, both of which I’d finished to their very last drop; one brand had been tugging away at the edge of my consciousness. This was a product that came highly raved by many prominent skincare bloggers who I highly respect for their opinions, and I just had to find a way to get it.
The product is the Pixi Glow Tonic and it comes highly rated by acclaimed skincare guru Caroline Hirons (who I adore and have learned a lot from btw, even if I may not agree with everything because some things don’t work for my skin and I know that); and better yet, it’s available online with international shipping! I love webstores that ship internationally for free or a small fee, and I find stores based in the UK are very good about this, which is why I buy a lot of my skincare from the UK.
Pixi is the brand, which some of you may recognise, is also a brand that makes some quite cute makeup and makeup sets. To be honest, as I’m not as well trained in reviewing ingredients that goes into skincare, I would not have given this a second look, due to its makeup origins. This is why I have to let other more experienced and cleverer people do it for me 😛 I just come in to give it a go to see if I like it.
Ms. Hirons says that this is a dupe of the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 (another product that I’m dying to have a go at, but which is near to impossible to find online as the dodo – if you know a website that will ship it internationally without me having to mortgage my house to do so, please let me know!) and she loves the Lotion P50 so at the first opportunity, I picked up a bottle online to see what the hype was about.
