Pixi Glow Tonic on Rosecea and Sensitive Skin Review
After years of using it, here is my review of the Pixi Glow Tonic for rosacea and sensitive skin.
Read until the end to find out more about the product and its suitability for rosacea sufferers.
Pixi Glow Tonic Ingredients and Benefits
Before we step into the actual review of Pixi Glow Tonic, let’s talk about the Glow Tonic ingredients and benefits.
The Glow Tonic by Pixi main active ingredient is Glycolic Acid, kept at 5% with the aim of gently exfoliating dead skin cells. Because exfoliation can be slightly irritating, Pixi enriched the formula with Aloe Vera to soothe and hydrate, and Ginseng to improve circulation and engergize. The formula is alcohol-free, which is something that every skin type appreciates. Consequently, this toner is marketed as suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive ones. Is it, really?

Now, what does Glow Tonic do? Glow Tonic by Pixi is a “radiance-enhancing tonic that helps remove impurities while also hydrating and protecting your skin” (cit.).
Glow Tonic by Pixi Works!
As far as its radiance-boosting properties, and big help in removing impurities and texture from the skin surface, there’s no doubt: the Pixi Glow Tonic is a unique product that works!
The lack of alcohol is particularly appreciated, because it really is a toner that won’t risk burning your skin (which happend to me in the past!).
However, as per its suitability on sensitive skin types I think it really depends on the kind of sensitivity. Sensitive skins can be sensitive for many reasons (rosacea, psoriasis, or othe pathologies) and/or ways (reactive, itchy, swelling, peeling).
I’m going to tell you about my experience on rosacea.
Glow Tonic: My Review on Rosacea
How does the Pixi Glow Tonic behave on rosacea and sensitive skin? Here’s my review and experience.
As any rosacea sufferer, I have the most irregular skin texture: enlarged pores, impurities that form micro (or not) zits anywhere on my face. Of course, I have localized redness too.
In terms of gentle exfoliation, I did notice a boost of glow, and a general resurfacing of my skin texture. It didn’t really minimize my pores, however.
I loved the fact that it generally made my skin looking better by taking care of my impurities, as exfoliation is almost impossible for rosacea skins.
However, it really didn’t do anything for my redness. At the very least, the situation remained the same, but it can also flare up. Glycolic Acid isn’t a recommended ingredient for rosacea, so maybe it’s best to try the Rose Tonic to help counteract redness.
Overall, I think the Pixi Glow Tonic is a wonderful product with true immediate benefits and results even though it isn’t suitable for rosacea and couperose skin, as it can increase redness and inflammation.
However, if you don’t have rosacea skin, I find it an incredible product with great benefits and immediate results, and I highly recommend it. I gave my former Glow Tonics (I had many bottles) to a friend with normal skin and who was going through a breakout and she’s seen results in as little as 5 days.
Pixi Glow Tonic is available in
100 ml – 250 ml – 500 ml
