This was my second glycolic acid product and a step up for me in my AHA game. I have since switched over to The Ordinary's glycolic and prefer that because it is a 7% solution vs. Pixi's 5%. I have found some people are more sensitive to the Pixi toner even though it has less glycolic because it has fragrance (an inoffensive light rose scent), whereas I feel a tingle with The Ordinary's glycolic (which is unscented) that I didn't with the Pixi Glow Tonic. Also, be aware that glycolic is the strongest AHA because it penetrates the deepest. If you have very sensitive skin you may want to try a more gentle AHA (lactic, mandelic, malic). I don't get any added sensitivity from using this, but I don't use it at the same time as my retinoid (this is part of my AM routine and my retinoid is part of my PM routine) - and you should NEVER mix glycolic acid and retinoids at the same time!

The Glow Tonic is great at keeping my skin exfoliated without needing any physical exfoliation (I do occasionally use my Clarisonic if I've used benzoyl peroxide to dry out a pimple), and my skin has never been as healthy, toned, or glowing since I started using a glycolic toner. I don't like the packaging - I transferred mine to a spray bottle so I don't have to waste anything on cotton pads. This way, I just spray on my face and rub it lightly in. I can also get it on my back and the heels of my feet (great for baby-soft feet in winter and sandal season). I can't see myself repurchasing just because the price is better for The Ordinary, and that product is also stronger, but this is great at what it does.

I started using the pixi glow tonic a few weeks ago and so far it’s great! I feel like it’s actually helping my skin. I know it’s soon to tell but I just really like it! I was hesitant at first because I saw it everywhere on Instagram and You Tube and I know the products trending aren’t always really good. This one is wonderful! I have dry, sensitive skin and I’ve had no problems with it! I’m hoping it’ll help with my blackhead problem eventually! I have a lot on my nose and chin (Yuck!) and haven’t found a product that’ll actually get rid of them so we’ll see if this helps! Pixi Glow Tonic

I have just started getting into skincare and the immediate results i have seen with the Pixi Glow Tonic have kept me on top of my regimen. This is nice, light, and non-irritating. My skin feels so soft and looks looks glowier on the mornings after I've used this at night. I purchased the travel size to try it out and was considering switching to the Ordinary glycolic toner for the higher percentage and lower ph once it's out, but since I had been experiencing some redness and I like that this product has aloe to mitigate the redness and add a little extra moisture during the winter, I think I'll actually be purchasing the full size bottle of Pixi Glow Tonic.

There's a reason this is so popular. I shouldn't have to boast about how good this is because I think everyone knows. It's a wonderful light 5% glycolic acid with rose and aloe to calm the skin. I use this in the PM after cleansing for a gentle toner. I can put stronger exfoliants on top of it without destroying my skin but my skin is very tough and resistant to exfoliation, it may be too much for you to have both.

My current favorite toner! It’s a little steep in price for the size but the overall effects and experience keeps me coming back for more. I’m a fan of the ingredients and the fact that it has witch hazel which I love but is too drying to use alone and NOT over drying in the pick glow tonic! I have combination skin and live in the Pacific Northwest so I can’t have something that leaves me gasping for moisture! I have been using for six months and have seen an improvement in my overall complexion and having a very even tone, it’s the perfect amount of exfoliation without over doing it. I truly feel it gives me a glow !

Pixi Glow Tonic is the perfect toner for a face that wants to glow. While I am one of the few that doesn't particularly care for the scent, I love the way my skin feels after I splash this toner on my face. Once it soaks in, my skin feels fresher and looks brighter, I don't like the price for how small of a bottle I have, but I only use this toner in the morning, so it will last me awhile. Anyone looking to glow should use this toner.

I finally got my hands on this widely loved product to see what the fuss was about. The first thing I noticed and the biggest negative is the god awful smell. Some say playdoh, I say inside of a haunted house as oddly specific as that is. It's vile. The only reason I'm continuing to use it is because other than that, it's a nice toner. I don't know if I see the glow that people are talking about but as long as it gets the remnants of old makeup and dirt off, I'm fine to continue using it.

I recently bought the Pixi Glow Tonic from Target. I was a little put off from the price, but everyone RAVES about it, and I have been wanting to try a toner, so I caved. I still don't really know what it does, but I feel like it had really stepped up my cleansing game and my skin feels GREAT after I use it! I was afraid that it would be too drying, but it is fine. Once it dries, I use my serum or moisturizer and go on. It doesn't smell amazing, but my skin looks great!

I really notice a difference with my skin with this product. It helps resurface and help my acne scars disappear quickly. It has a light tingling feeling that really feels like it's working. My only gripe is that i go through it sooo quickly using it once a day and it gets pricey to repurchase. [product:the-ordinary-glycolic-acid-7%-toning-solution-8-oz/-240-ml] is incredibly similar and you get more!! And cheaper on sephora.com if you're looking for an alternative.

I have used this product over a year and I’m in love with it. I get this product at target or ulta. It give me that nice glow on my face. My skin is very dry and putting this on my face doesn’t look like it. I have try other toners like nyx and I didn’t like the nyx because it didn’t even out my skin tone on my face so a friend of mine told me about this pixi beauty products and I thought I should try it . I do recommend this brand to any who has sensitive skin.
