I get that it might be quite confusing scrolling through my reviews right now: pixi Rose Tonic Review, pixi Rose Glow Mist Review, pixi Glow Tonic, pixi Glow Mist, pixi Rose Oil… There is a lot of pixi going on, and even more pixi Rose.
But what can I say, I have been bathing my skin in rose (scented) products for a while now and I have no intention to stop. And that means something, coming from a woman that used to dislike rose scented beauty products.
What has changed? Nothing really. I still dislike the classic rose scent often associated with beauty, but I do appreciate the more gentle, refined version in the pixi Rose Collection.
To make it easier to keep up with all the similar sounding stuff though I introduced a new review category: How does it compare to… Where I compare (ha!) the product reviewed to similar ones.
So without further ado, let´s dive into the pixi Rose Tonic Review.
You may have noticed that over the last few posts, I have changed my „ingredients“ setup quite a bit.
I tried typing things out in a continous text, focusing on the ingredients I thought important. Much more enjoyable to read, but too little information.
I tried listing every ingredient, sorted by “Favorable”, “Filler” and “Unfavorable”. Made the blog posts very long. Plus, I am still unsure what is supposed to be a filler ingredient?
And now, doing my very best venturing out into unknown html territory, trying to write out all the ingredients, but hiding them behind a click. That way the post looks less intimidating, but the information is still there for you if you want it.
So there you go: Instytutum Resurfacing Glow Toner (PR-Sample) – the third design attempt. And, funnily enough, my third daily glycolic acid to review on the blog (See number one here and number two here). If that isn´t coincidence!
If you read Acid Toning Week Part 1 (if you haven’t, click here), you already know, my first acid toner was Alpha H Liquid Gold.
I saw results within two weeks, and I had tasted blood.
The queen of skincare, Caroline Hirons, recommends acid toning twice daily (of course depending on your skin type and concerns), and as much as I wanted to, I quickly figured out that using Alpha H twice daily would not only leave me broke, but would cause my skin to peel in a very unpleasant way.
So on the hunt I went for a more gentle version. And I found the aptly named “Clarins Doux Exfoliant”, or “Gentle Exfoliant Brightening Toner” for those unfamiliar with french.
