My Thoughts on Pixi Milky Soothing Toner

Ingredients
Going through its ingredient list, Pixi Milky Tonic is mostly full of skin-loving ingredients. Mostly for soothing and hydration but I do worry of Jojoba since it's comedogenic. I'm still unsure if Jojoba was the cause of my breakouts.


Packaging
Same as its bestselling tonics, the Milky Tonic also comes in its signature packaging. The plastic bottle is sturdy and I have had no experience with spills using it.


Texture
It's watery and has a cloudy mix. It takes a bit of time to have it fully absorbed into the skin but once absorbed it give the skin an instant feel of moisture and softness to the skin.


Scent-Wise
This toner smells so so so good! But very very strong too! I, however, find it calming upon application. The main ingredient of perfuming in this toner is Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) which is said to have beneficial properties but at the same time could cause damage to the skin for those with sensitive skin.


Experience
I honestly love this toner when I first used it, as it smelled so good putting me in a good and relaxed mood. I didn't experience any bad reaction while using this for the first few days, but after 3 days I started seeing acne bumps forming. I'm unsure if the toner is the cause because I used Pixi Milky range at once. Within the week I keep seeing the formation of new acne, the big ones and I started freaking out. So after a week, I stopped the whole range to have my skin recovered.


Overall Thoughts
I still haven't given up on this toner yet, I'm putting it aside until my skin is healed again and I'll reuse the Pixi Milky range by-products instead of the whole range to see which product actually caused my acne. And the first product I'm planning to use is this soothing toner as application feels so good.

I'll update this post again once I do which probably will be months from now, but hey... at least you know I'm not just making it up for the sake of a review. 



My Rate
Rate: /5  (I'll hold my rate until I re-try again this product)
Repurchase: I can't decide yet
