Pixi Glow Tonic
The Pixi Glow Tonic is an exfoliating toner that helps to tone, firm, and tighten the skin. The alcohol free "suitable for all" formula removes dead skin cells improving dry, dull and aging skin leaving a healthier looking complexion.
Toners are something I've never really found a use for previously and it's taken me the longest time ever to decide whether the Pixi Glow Tonic was effective or even if I liked it, a few months on and it's become a much loved part of my routine. As someone with "normal" skin with very few issues, I found using this toner daily a waste; I've been using the Pixi Glow Tonic when my skin is feeling congested or troubled and I've found it helps speed up the recovery process. I use the toner paired with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo to repair the skin, reduce redness or irritations, and protect against developing breakouts. I've found the Pixi Glow Tonic speeds up the healing process of blemishes and congested skin, and clears my complexion up much quicker.
My skin can be incredibly sensitive to face masks and I've found many to be irritating especially charcoal based formulas. The Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask is the best, most effective face mask I have ever tried and I cannot recommend it enough. It leaves the skin feeling beautifully cleansed, brighter and healthier. The formula is cooling on the skin and despite the mask visibly drying on the skin and working on the natural oils to draw out the dirt, there is no tightening feeling nor dryness afterwards. Instead, after using Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, I find my complexion is left clean, free of dirt, and healthier than before. This has definitely become a permanent skin care staple for me.
Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum promises a lot. The formula contains ﬁve forms of hyaluronic compounds to target hydration, elasticity, and immediate and long-term below-surface rehydration. The Antarctic and Hawaiian Algae Complex promotes renewal and helps prevent moisture loss, improving visible skin surface texture and skin barrier functions. This serum promises an overall improvement in visible skin health and age, reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and surface irregularities.
As someone with young looking skin with very few signs of aging, I was looking out for improvement in terms of hydration, visible changes in skin surface texture, and an overall improvement rather than changes in lines or wrinkles. The formula of the Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum is clear and lightweight with a slippery texture that glides onto the skin. The gel like consistency absorbs quickly meaning the serum doesn't interfere with any treatments you might apply afterwards.
After a couple of months of use I'm not seeing any drastic changes to my complexion but I am noticing an overall improvement. I have seen my skin become brighter and healthier looking whenever I have been using this product as part of my daily routine. My complexion looks and feels more hydrated with the surface texture becoming visibly smoother. The Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum is a joy to use and adds an extra flourish to a skin care routine that can make your skin look much healthier. It's definitely a product I will continue to use in the future.
