Pixi Glow Tonic Has Landed at Target

I think I first heard about Pixi Glow Tonic when I saw this review on Refinery 29. After reading that review, I remember doing more and more research (because my obsession with it grew and grew) and that's when I found Caroline Hiron's famous review from 2012 (seriously, read that if you are at all curious about this product), where she mentions that Pixi Glow Tonic was a dupe for the legendary French product P50.

At first, this product was only available in the UK, but eventually you could purchase it via the Pixi site here in the US (you can still get it there, where it retails for $29). But a few months ago, I remember seeing a blurb on one of the various "beauty industry news" sites I follow and it was confirmed that Glow Tonic was coming to Target stores, in smaller (3.4 oz.) bottles, for a more affordable price of $15.

So I've basically been stalking my local Targets ever since, and the other day I found this:

Keep reading for more pics and info...

I completely freaked out when I saw this at one of my local Target stores the other day, but then it was quickly followed by a "whomp whomp" moment:


As you can see, there are two rows for the Glow Tonic ($15, 3.4 oz.), right next to the Glow Mist and Makeup Fixing Mist.

But the good news is, if your Target doesn't have Glow Tonic yet either, you can now purchase it directly from the Target website HERE. Also, check out this video on the Target website (click the "watch it work" button) for more info.

So let's hear it. Are you excited to try this product? Do you already own it? If so, is it a holy grail product for you? Did it live up to the hype? Are you happy to be able to purchase it locally (in smaller, more affordable bottles)? Tell me, tell me, tell me!

And you can be sure that I'll eventually review this (after I get my grubby little hands on it).


  1. I went through a couple bottles of these... I ordered them off the Pixi website when it was all hyped up. My expectations must have been too high. Though it was very nice, it's not my holy grail product. I couldn't tell a difference in my skin. I haven't repurchased from the Pixi site since then. I also went through them kind of quickly, so bigger bottles may be worth it, depending on how fast you use them.

    I just saw that the Pixi site also have the smaller bottles for $15!

  2. I've been ordering it through the Pixi Website and I love it! I have dry skin and the exfoliating ingredients whisk away those dry patches that makeup tends to cling to, making my skin much smoother. I saw about 6 bottles of the 3.4 oz. Glow Tonic at Target the day before yesterday and I went back yesterday and there was only 1 left! I have a feeling they're going to have trouble keeping it in stock! :)

  3. I saw one bottle the other day when I saw the new Maybelline Brow kit and the L'Oreal Eyeliner (which is one of the best I have used. I didn't purchase because I am trying to use some other products first. Namely a big bottle of Witch Hazel toner. I may purchase later this week

  4. I really love this and am so excited to now be able to buy it at Target! There really aren't acid products like this one, that do not contain alcohol and by companies that do not test on animals, available at "drugstore" prices. Using this and other products with salicylic acid has really helped my face clear up. My face is smoother and my acne scars are starting to fade. It didn't happen overnight, but my skin is getting better. Definitely a win for us to see this

  5. I saw this the other day... when I also saw that target had removed the nail polishes from their Pixi display :( I was hoping to see their new polish colors in person. I'll pass on the "glow tonic" since it's fragranced. Glad to hear it's working for so many people though

  6. Unfortunately, Pixi Glow probably has too high of a pH to be effective as an AHA exfoliant:

    There are better products available for similar prices, like the Silk Naturals 8% AHA Toner or the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix pads (available at Target!).

  7. I picked up a bottle today and have used it once so far. I'll be interested to see how it works on my very oily skin! I didn't mind the scent.
