TRY PIXI’S NEW
RETINOL TONIC

Imagine all the magic of retinol without the sensitive skin side effects

As a sensitive-skin wimp, I was hesitant to try retinol because of its skin-stripping reputation, but with shrunken pores, plumper skin and improved pigmentation on the promise list, I had to give this a go. Simply soak a cotton pad and sweep over cleansed skin, no need to rinse. Since the aim is to increase cell turnover, a common reaction to retinol is a mild burning sensation (eek). Thankfully, the retinol inside this toner is encapsulated, so its texture-improving, plumping powers are released over time, reducing risk of sensitivity. Pixi’s Glow Tonic is already a cult bestseller, and this looks sure to follow in its footsteps. One month in and I’m officially on the retinol road to glowing skin with no reaction or redness. I’m sold!
