Glow Tonic – PIXI

Glow Tonic – PIXI

It’s time to show off your skin’s glow.

If I could only recommend one skin-care product, it would be this one. Pixi’s Glow Tonic has been my skin’s saviour for the past two years. I am obsessed with this product and can’t go a day without using it. The products in my skin-care routine are constantly changing, but this product isn’t going anywhere!

The Glow Tonic is a facial toner that cleans your pores by removing excess oil and impurities. It also gently exfoliates your skin, revealing your natural glow. It contains glycolic acid which exfoliates the skin, ginseng which energises the skin and aloe vera which hydrates the skin.

I use this product in the AM & PM after cleansing. All you need to do is pour a small amount onto a cotton pad and gently wipe across your skin. A small amount really does go a long way! Since using this product I have noticed minimal breakouts and my oil is more controlled. At first, you may notice a stinging sensation, but this goes away after a few uses.

Pixi’s Glow Tonic has received glowing reviews and is a cult favourite amongst the beauty community. The product was the winner of Teen Vogues 2017 Acne Awards.

The bottle comes in three sizes: 250ml, 100ml & 15ml.

It is the added step between cleansing and moisturising that will change your skin game forever.

Price: £18 – 250 ml (the cost of magic in a bottle)

Sun Bunny Bronzer – Too Faced

Sun Bunny Bronzer – Too Faced

A dual-shaded bronzer to surpass any make-up desire.

If you hadn’t guessed by now, my make-up bag is filled to the brim with Too Faced products. And my bronzer is no exception. I present to you the Sun Bunny Bronzer by Too Faced, a dual-shaded piece of make-up heaven.

The bronzer has two sides, a glowy bronze, and a deep bronze. Put them together and it’s magic. It’s the perfect bronzer for summer as it’s pink undertones mimic the flush of a natural tan.

The glowy bronze side isn’t at all shimmery, it just enhances your natural colour and brings out your inner glow. The deep bronze side adds dimension to your face and blends seamlessly. Both shades are easy to build and work perfectly together.

Wear the shades separately or sweep your brush across the compact for an extra glow. But either way, you will love this product.

I also use this bronzer for an everyday eyeshadow, as one stroke across the eyes adds a natural shaping. Also, the compact is super sturdy and comes with a vanity mirror, so you can keep an eye on your sun-kissed skin all day long.

If you’re after a bronzer that makes it look like you just spent a day at the beach, then you must get your hands on it now.

Price: £25 (hunny, that’s the price to be a sun bunny)

Sun Glow Foundation – Note Beauty

Sun Glow Foundation – Note Beauty

Are you a fan of the no-makeup look? Then take note and keep reading.

I actually came across this product by accident. I’d had my eye on By Terry’s Brightening CC Serum for quite a while, which is basically a super glowing elixir which promises skin rejuvenation and amazing results. But at £61, I wasn’t ready to commit just yet. I ended up on a website called Influenster, which basically stores millions of reviews on any product you can think of. Whilst researching By Terry’s product, I read a review which suggested I try Note Beauty’s sun glow foundation first, a drug-store alternative which offers a similar look. I’d never heard of Note Beauty before, but scrolling through their website, I was shocked at how many products looked right up my street. At £12.95 I thought I would save myself some dollar, and try this first. And it definitely didn’t disappoint.

Sun Glow Foundation isn’t really a foundation, I would describe it more as a glowy BB cream or a shimmery liquid bronzer. It applies really flawlessly and isn’t sticky. It basically just warms up your face and gives a natural-looking glow. In addition, it contains SPF 15 and Vitamin E!! This is a definite benefit as it protects your skin from sun damage whilst keeping your skin hydrated.

I either wear the product when I don’t want a full face of make-up, but still want a little bit of coverage and a sunkissed glow. Or I layer it under my foundation, and it gives my face a really dewy finish. But this product can be used however you like, as a highlighter? As a fake-tan? As a body glow? If you’re scared of the depth of colour, mix it into your foundation or use as a base layer, for a sheen, flawless finish.

The product comes in three shades. 10, 20 and 30. I have shade 20, so if you have a fairer complexion I would recommend shade 10. You can’t really go wrong with this product, especially if you love dewy and glowy make-up looks. I will definitely be repurchasing!

Take note & bring on the glow!

Price: £12.95 (cheaper than a holiday that’s for sure)
