Pixi Beauty Skintreats Vitamin C Tonic Review


We usually are highlighted on Vitamin C serums and moisturizers but toners not so much. Probably that there are not so many believers in the usage of toners. I sometimes question the usage of toners too but I usually apply it anyways because I love the soothing and hydrating feels it gives especially after washing the face which tends to become dry and strain. Toners are very good to bring back instant moisture to the skin. So Pixi also offers a Vitamin-C Tonic in their Vitamin-C range and the question is, does it do good? Keep on reading to know.

See my IG Post for more pictures on the product:

After using Pixi Skintreats Vitamin-c Juice Cleanser this is the recommended product to apply on. It basically a normal daily toner infused with Vitamin C.

Ingredients

Ascorbic Acid is used but unlike its Juice Cleanser, it doesn't contain Ferulic Acid or even Vitamin E. This toner contains fruit and plant extracts including willow bark as anti-bacterial property. It also claims to have probiotics for the skin's barrier.


Packaging

It comes in Pixi's signature bottles for toners so it'll look great with the addition of other toners. (I'm picturing Insta shots... LOL) Anyhow, it does worry me how potent and how much of percentage of the Ascorbic Acid used in the product as the packaging isn't even opaque from light.


Texture

Same as all their other toners, it's watery and sinks very well in the skin.


Scent-Wise

Has a strong scent of sweet fruits, mostly citrus. Doesn't bother me much


Overall Thoughts

I have had this toner for quite some time already, the label shows it could last up to 12 months after opening but the product colour says otherwise. The colour has definitely changed and got darker and I'm sure that it has already been oxidized for quite some time already even when I have had it stored in a room with very minimal light. But still, I feel like the packaging here should be the main issue as ascorbic acid is known to be very potent and very unstable.

I have explained why in my post Vitamin C in Skin Care, What You Need to Know

Honestly, I feel very sad that I was unable to finish this toner but at least I managed to use half of it. I don't dare to use it now since I could see the drastic change of colour. I should have used this up ages ago when I first opened it. It should be good for the first 3 months with proper storage. 

The toners main purpose is to brighten and soothe the skin. I feel that it's very hydrating too and it does a good job in prepping the skin before applying the next step of this range. 

If you're planning to get this, make sure you finish up this toner before you proceed with trying other toners as this product would not last long in your stash.


Till then peeps!
