My Beauty Faves :: Pixi Glow Tonic and Glow Mist

Today I bring you two new products I have recently discovered at my favorite store-  Target!  Judging from all the activity this brand gets on Instagram, I realize that I am getting on this train rather late.  However, I figured I would still write a post about these products because you might just be a Mom like me zipping by the beauty section at Target because your toddler will only sit in the cart for about 10 minutes on a good day.

So here we go!  The glow tonic is probably the best glycolic acid toner I have tried to date.  When you apply it you feel your skin tingling so you know it's actually working!  Glycolic acid is an exfoliant.  It will remove dead cells, excess oil and any remaining make up residue from the surface of your skin.  However, you are not likely to experience any tightness or skin irritation with this toner because the acid has been partially neutralized so it's not working at its full strength.  I have been using it daily for over a month now at night time after I remove my make up and it's even helping me keep the pores in my nose from clogging.  I have zero redness, flaking or tightness to report which is a first for me with daily use of a glycolic acid toner.

I use the Glow Mist in the morning after applying my make up to help set it and give my skin a dewy look.  It is enriched with natural oils together with soothing and hydrating propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts which are all beneficial to the skin.  Even though it contains oil, it does not make my combination skin oily.  I have also used it during the day if my skin feels dry and I have been known to apply to my hands too (why not?).  You will notice that there is a layer of oil on the top so you just have to remember to shake the container before applying so everything mixes in well.

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Do you have any other Pixi favorites?

Thanks for reading!
