Now, Coming onto the product category – ‘TONERS’ are one of the essential skincare product and ‘TONING’ is an important skincare routine step that one must never skip at all. Toner helps maintain clear and healthy skin. Toner is such an easy way to maintain clarity and restore skin’s balance. After all, all it takes is a few swipes of a cotton pad to clear those dead skin cells and pore-clogging impurities thereby restoring your skin’s natural oil etc
Also, regular CTM routine helps shrinks the appearance of pores – Toners tighten and cleanse your pores, which means less residue, dirt and oil to get in and cause acne, or other skin irritations.

I am using this toner since so many years now. I absolutely love it. With regular use – I certainly see a big difference on the pores. Pores look more refined, and I’d see old acne scars fading and overall skin looked more even toned. My skin is better everyday and my makeup looks more even. I think I am never going to change this toner at all. Now, There are a lot of acid toners in the market. Depending on your skin tolerance you may choose the select the one you want and also decide how many times per week you want to use them. Infact, when I started using Pixi, I did use it only a few times in the week initially and gradually I started to use it more often. It certainly does have an exfoliating effect on skin as well.
FREE from oil and alcohol, Glow Tonic is suitable for both combination and dry skin types. Exfoliates gently, soothes the skin, brightens skin tone, reduces hyperpigmentation. Particularly, if you are someone whose skin is congested and have larger pores, You are most likely to see faster results and reduction in the size of pores etc as the glycolic acid gently exfoliates and clarifies the skin. However, glycolic can make skin more prone to sun damage. Be sure to use a sunscreen while stepping out during day time. I recommend to use this only at night especially during summers.
