Pixi skintreats Retinol & Glow Tonic

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!

Love, Jen

Review: Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub Vitamin A & Glycolic Acid

Derma E Glycolic Scrub
Review on Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub

Here’s my review on product #2 from my vegan skin care haul. First, I want to say that I haven’t used a face scrub in ages. My last face scrub was Acure Brightening Facial Scrub. I stopped using Acure because it didn’t brighten my skin or do anything special to it. I thought the scrub was very harsh on my skin too, and I don’t have sensitive skin. Acure really put me off from using face scrubs altogether.

But, one day, I decided to try something new. I found Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub. It says right on the tube that it contains Vitamin A and Glycolic Acid. I used to use Glycolic Acid many moons ago. It was my go-to ingredient to battle acne. I remember it doing a great job at smoothing out my skin. Oh, memories. That’s one of the main reasons why I chose this face scrub.

Let’s get to know this face scrub a little bit more…

My Review:

Onto the review! This is what the face scrub looks like. It looks like your typical apricot scrub. The Apricot Seed Powder is small and doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. The texture of the scrub was soft and creamy too. The combination of those attributes made the face scrub feel nice on the skin. I didn’t think it tugged on my skin or anything like that. I enjoyed using this face scrub each time because of that. Much better compared to my previous face scrub for sure.

Derma E Glycolic Scrub
What it looks like!

The scrub does have sweet smell to it. I can’t put my finger on it, but I didn’t think it was bothersome. Besides the texture and smell of the product. Does it work? I would say…YES! I’ve been using this face scrub for 1 week already. And, I absolutely love the way it makes my skin feel afterwards. Exfoliated, smooth, soft, and clean. It didn’t dry my skin out. Remember that I have oily, acne-prone skin. The first time I used the face scrub, I saw pimples forming out of the blue. They appeared to be pushing out of the skin. As I continued to use it, my skin started to clear up. If you have clogged pores, be aware that there may be an initial breakout. It’s only been 1 week for me, but I am looking forward to using this face scrub. So far, I like what I see, and I hope to continue to see improvements overtime. Wish me luck!

So have you used Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub? Did it work for you? Share!!!

September 3, 2019 UPDATE:

I’m still using Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub. I do really like using it as my facial scrub. But there are a few things that are bothering me.

  1. I love the creaminess of the facial scrub, but the formula made it difficult to move across the face smoothly.
  2. Every single time I use this facial scrub, I had a hard time removing the scrub from my skin.

With those two points in mind, I want a facial scrub that moves across the skin much more effortlessly. Signs point to not buying this face scrub again. That’s what I’m thinking right now.

September 9, 2019 UPDATE: I stopped using Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub since my last update. I went off to search for a new face scrub and stumbled upon this face scrub — Bliss Micro Magic Skin-renewing Microdermabrasion Scrub. Let’s see how this one goes. 🙂

Why did I stop using Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub?

Love, Jen
