I picked up Pixi skintreats Retinol & Glow Tonic. I’ve always wanted to try these. They are basically toners. I haven’t used a toner in years. I thought I would give them a try again. Pixi skintreats Glow Tonic is rated highly among users. I wanted to see what the fuss is all about. I posted my skin care routine a few days ago, but I’ll be adding these in — Glow Tonic in the morning and Retinol Tonic at night.

Glow Tonic exfoliates and brightens. Reveals healthy glowing skin. For all skin types. Alcohol free. Dermatologist tested.

Retinol Tonic is a multi-action treatment with time release retinol. Also replenishes skin with potent antioxidants.

I used Retinol Tonic last night and woke up with brighter skin. 🙂 I used Glow Tonic this morning. My skin feels and looks less oily. I’m really excited for these toners!

Here’s two more skin care products that I’ve been eyeing and decided to bite the bullet and buy. They are…

I’ve been testing them out, and here are my thoughts on them! Let’s start off with the first skin care product!

Review on Derma E Radiance Brightening Night Cream:

elf Radiance Night Cream
Derma E Radiance Brightening Night Cream

I was very excited to use this face cream. The name of the product has the words ‘radiance’ and ‘brightening’ in it. It’s always good to correct an uneven skin tone and lighten acne scars. I was hoping for the best when I first started using this cream.

Derma E Radiance Brightening Night Cream is a thick gel-cream. Leaning towards a cream. It takes much more effort to blend the cream into the skin. It doesn’t sink in right away. The texture can be off-putting. If you’re into smooth, elegant creams, this isn’t for you. You have to really rub it in. Once it’s rubbed into the skin, it doesn’t leave the skin ultra-hydrated. Don’t expect to be drenched in moisture.

After using it for only a few nights, I’ve noticed that my skin brightened up and is left feeling somewhat hydrated. A couple more days after that, I started to develop red, deep angry cystic acne. I stopped using the cream quickly. The cream did work to brighten the skin and lighten my dark under eye circles. But, that’s not enough for me to continue using it on my face. No one wants acne bumps + a brighter complexion, right? I will not buy this product again. Not for acne-prone skin people like me. *warning all people with acne skin!!*

The Brightening Cream and Anti-Aging Regenerative Serum

Derma E Anti-Aging Regenerative Serum

Ingredients:

Purified Water, Glycerin (Vegetable Derived), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Coco-Caprylate (Coconut Derived), Xanthan Gum, Diheptyl Succinate, Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Glycolic Acid, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate (Vegetable Derived), Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate (Vegetable Derived), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Natural Fragrance Oils

Review on Derma E Anti-Aging Regenerative Serum:

I wasn’t impressed by Derma E Anti-Aging Regenerative Serum. The texture reminded me of Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum. The results were similar. Both clogged my pores. Derma E serums are defintely a miss. Would not buy again or try any other serum from this brand ever again.

Have you tried these skin care products before? Leave your thoughts in the comment section!
