What is a Tonic? Ways to Enjoy a Tonic
Tonics are so much more than a toner!

I developed Pixi’s tonics with skin-loving ingredients to give your skin the boost that it needs. Tonics are the second step in your routine, after washing with your favourite cleanser. Use a multi-tasking tonic to reveal beautiful, glowing skin.

Tonics are a simple and fuss-free way to improve any skincare routine. Using a tonic helps improve the absorption of your other skincare products, making it the perfect prep step!

My passion for tonics began over 20 years ago when I was looking for a solution that would help prep the skin to achieve a flawless, healthy glow. This is now known as Glow Tonic, Pixi’s award-winning and best-selling tonic!

Since Glow Tonic’s success, Pixi has now developed a variety of tonics for every skin mood we experience. Each tonic is uniquely formulated for all skin types and are all alcohol-free.

Glow Tonic – Pixi’s cult favourite! This invigorating toner deeply cleanses and gently exfoliates all skin types.

Key ingredients: Glycolic Acid to exfoliate, Ginseng to energise, and Aloe Vera to soothe.

Clarity Tonic
– Helps clear skin, control blemishes, and minimises the appearance of pores.

Key ingredients: Salicylic Acid unclogs pores, Glycolic Acid gently exfoliates, Lactic Acid clarifies, and Probiotics balance.

Vitamin-C Tonic –Brightens, provides antioxidants, promotes healthy collagen production, and boosts skin’s natural luminosity.

Key ingredients: Vitamin C brightens, Probiotics balance, and Ferulic Acid provides an antioxidant boost.

Milky Tonic
– Soothes, comforts, and deeply hydrates stressed skin to reveal a relaxed, balanced complexion.

Rose Tonic – Nourishes, calms, and minimises redness, leaving skin hydrated and refreshed.

Key ingredients: Rose Flower Extract calms, Elderflower softens, and Chamomile soothes.

Botanical Collagen Tonic – Volumises, firms, and improves elasticity to help promote a youthful—looking complexion by smoothing the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin texture.

Key ingredients: Acacia Collagen volumises, Peptides firm, and Coconut Water hydrates.

Retinol Tonic – Helps rejuvenate, renew, and replenish the skin for a smoother, softer appearance while soothing sensitive skin.

Key ingredients: Time-release Retinol renews, Peptides firm and Jasmine Flower balances.

Here is how to enjoy!

Ready to add your first layer of skin-loving ingredients? After cleansing, saturate a cotton pad with your tonic, sweep across face, neck and décolletage, follow with your mist, serum and moisturiser. If you’re like me, change up your tonic of choice in the morning and at night.

Listen to your skin’s needs. If you are looking to control breakouts, reach for the Clarity Tonic. Noticing redness or need to give your skin some love, add in Rose Tonic. When a youthful, smoother complexion is what you are looking to achieve, Retinol Tonic and Botanical Collagen Tonic are skin-perfecting go-to’s! Need to brighten? Vitamin-C Tonic is perfect to even out skin tone. If your skin is thirsty and in need of soothing, reach for Milky Tonic.

Have you heard of multi-toning?

When Rose Tonic launched, I loved it so much I started to multi-tone using Rose Tonic in the AM for hydration and Glow Tonic in the PM and this Pixi-pairing revealed glowing results.

If you love Pixi’s tonics and want to add more than one multi-tasking tonic, try using one in the AM and the other in the PM. Here are a few options I like to use:

AM PM Result
Rose Tonic
Glow Tonic
Soothe & Exfoliate
Glow Tonic
Retinol Tonic
Exfoliate & Renew
Milky Tonic
Clarity Tonic
Hydrate & Clarify
Vitamin-C Tonic
Botanical Collagen Tonic

Grab the tonic best suited for your skin’s need that morning or night.

So many possibilities to enjoy!

Always remember to use an SPF during the day, especially when using products with AHA’s.
