If you follow my daily skincare routines on Instagram, you might have noticed that I use Pixi Glow Tonic as my exfoliant on many mornings. It’s a cult favorite among beauty bloggers and those who read them, and I am not immune to falling for products that are already a thing. I started using Glow Tonic in January 2015 and haven’t looked back. It’s a great, mild, beautifully fragrant glycolic exfoliant with ginseng. You can use it twice a day if you want – that’s how gentle it is.
Pixi products feel and smell expensive, and they are effective. But the packaging is pretty basic, so it’s in a mid-range for pricing. My local Target carries Pixi, and the beauty rep there told me last time that they can’t even keep it in stock. That‘s how popular this European brand has become in the US, and it’s largely due to the influence of beauty bloggers.
I hit my local Target today with the hope of picking up the Glow Mud Cleanser and the Glow Mud Mask. Both were sold out, as were the large sizes of Glow Tonic. So huge thanks to my friend Marie Domingo for letting me know about Pixi’s 20% off friends and family event, now on through September. I used the code grateful4you and saved $11 on my order (shipping is free). What did I buy?
- Best of Bright – a perfect gift set for me, with the Glow Mud Cleanser and Glow Mud Mask, plus a mini Glow Tonic, for only $22.
- Glow Tonic To Go – 60 pre-soaked pads for only $18; perfect for travel.
- Hydrating Milky Mist – a hyaluronic acid-packed mist that Marie told me she loves; I cannot pass up a good mist, and it’s only $15, so had to have it
I’ll report back on the products that are new to me. In the meantime, if you’re new to the world of chemical exfoliating or just looking for a fantastic, mild acid to start your day, use the discount code grateful4you to try out Pixi Glow Tonic for yourself before the end of September. (If you’re still using grainy scrubs or ‘microdermabrasion’ cleansers, please do your skin a favor and switch to a chemical exfoliator. You’ll never regret it.)
