PIXI GLOW. TRIXI FLOW. POOPY FARTY WINDY BLOW.
Ahem. Sorry. It's been one of those days...
Brain fart's out the way lets talk about Pixi. Not Lott. I'm not a fan. Glow. Glow is where it's at.
This baby is legendary. Bloggers all over the shop have raved from the rooftops and shouted praise at passers by.
*PIXI GLOW TONIC IS THE BEST. HEY RANDOM BUSINESS MAN!!! IT"S GREAT- NO I WILL NOT SHUT UP. GO BUY IT AND PUT IT ON YOUR FACE! GO GO GO!*
So yeah.. it crops up in favourites / most repurchased vids time and time again. Finally I understand why. It's good! Really good actually.
I originally picked this up this last year in the store near Liberty in London (which is handily located very close to my work.. uh oh!). I was Pre-Roaccutance, fully in the throws of acne, really sensitive, red, raw, spotty, icky blurgh. I'd heard excellent things about its spot banishing qualities and thought it might be my light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately I thought that about a lot of hyped up 'Holy Grail' products and like the rest of them it didn't go so well.
After a week of so of using this I stopped as I thought it was breaking me out / irrtating my skin more so than the poor thing already was. I can't be sure, because Lord only knows I was having one hell of a time with my skin back then, but I didn't want to risk it.
However... my now blemish free face is fantastic and I love it dearly (roaccutane update is imminent!), however I still have a lot of red scarring over my cheeks and I figured if there was ever a time to give Pixi Glow and its exfoliating qualities another go this was it!
I've been using it morning and evening most days for a couple of weeks now and I'm in love. There's been a definite improvement in the surface of my skin. Previously I was just happy to be spot free and not covered in lumps and bumps but now 'smooth' has been taken to a whole new level and I'm not going back! I actually cant stop touching my face because it's sooooooo gloriously soft and luscious. Like an incredibly fine suede or something. Wonderful.
I'd also say that's its aiding with lessening my scarring. I'm fully aware it'll take months for the redness to really fade but I do think the process is being hurried along slightly by this pink hued potion.
Word to the wise though... My skin type has dramatically changed after being on the roaccutane and as well as being clear (!!!!) it's also seemingly far less sensitive. I was worried that the tonic might really have been a factor in my old nasty ass spot infested face, but clearly not! I would say for those with sensitive skin or who (whom?) are acne prone, maybe be weary of this product. Of chemical exfoliators in general actually. I doused my mug with various brands, Alpha H (a little liquid gold anyone?), Pixi Glow and a bunch of high street shizzle and all it did was aggravate the situation. One thing I've definitely learnt over the years is to treat any irritation with care and kindness, moisturise, hydrate and be gentle. Going at a spot ridden face with harsh chemicals is NOT the way forward my loves.
For those of you little pumpkins with more tolerant complexions however I'd say a big HELLS YEAH to Pixi Glow Tonic. It's bloomin' marvellous stuff.
