Acid Toners are my new fav item to use, with a range of benefits for the skin and lots of products to choose from, I am now on a mission to try and nail a staple acid toner and try a few different brands. I picked up the Freedom Glycolic Glow Tonic from Superdrug a couple of months back when I run out of my Pixi Glow Tonic.
The Freedom Glycolic Glow Tonic is very similar to the Pixi Glow Tonic, I think it’s supposed to be a dupe. The only major differences are the Freedom version has alcohol and ginseng whilst the Pixi doesn’t. The other major difference is the price, Pixi retails for £18 for 25oml whilst this is just £6 for 200ml. The Glycolic Glow Tonic promises clearer, brighter skin and gently removes dead skin cells for a softer, smoother and more radiant skin ( which very similar to Pixi’s claims)
I am so disappointed with this toner! I don’t think it made any difference with my skin. With Pixi, I noticed a reduction in my pores and more radiant skin, breakouts were also minimised. With this, I didn’t notice any of those. I stopped using this for a while because it wasn’t effective at all so moved to the Nip Fab Glycolic Pads . It doesn’t say the acid content on the bottle but I am quite sure its very low.
I also think it has a lot of colouring in it, the colour is very yellow and really just reminds me of a cheap product and definitely a cheaper version of the Pixi Glow Tonic. I don’t really like the smell too.
For £6 I wanted more out of this acid toner but unfortunately, it didn’t live up to its expectations. I have a bit of it left and I am trying really hard to finish the bottle just to get rid of it. I definitely won’t repurchase this. You can get a 100ml of Pixi Glow Tonic which is just £10 and lasts long because you actually don’t need a lot of it. If you’re thinking of getting this one as a dupe for the Pixi Glow tonic, I would say don’t. I think I am quite harsh with it because I used it right after using the Pixi Glow Tonic.
Freedom Glycolic Glow Tonic is £6 and available from Superdrug
