Dupes For Pixi Glow Tonic (That Are Actually Really Good)


If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time you’ll that I am a HUGE fan of the cult classic Pixi Glow Tonic as are many of you, evidenced by this video Pixi put on there Instagram page recently;

In fact, I’ve been such a big fan over the years I’ve done a range of posts about it. From the classic review to pitting it against the other cult classic, The Ordinary Glycolic Acid Toner, to see which was better.

However, over my time running Science and Skincare, you guys have asked me SO many times for dupes and if you don’t know what a dupe its literally just another version of a product. Reasons for looking for a dupe can range from: cost of the product, effectiveness on your skin or even availability to you where you live.

So, today I’m going to share with you the top three dupes I found for Pixi Glow Tonic using a tool called SkinSkool, a database that compares products based on my favourite thing, their ingredients list (more on that here).

The dupes

E.L.F Keep Your Balance Toner

It’s cheaper by £8 (depending on the size you get) at £10. It’s got Hyaluronic Acid in it and a 5* rating from 76% of users.

The Ordinary 7% Glycolic Acid Toner

Next up is the legendary Glycolic Acid Toner from The Ordinary. For a full comprehensive comparative of this against Pixi click here.

Revolution Beauty Glycolic Toner

Lastly, is the dark horse of the group, the Revolution Beauty toner. Revolution Beauty has been taking the industry by storm by churning out cult classic products, with trendy ingredients consistently. This is no exception with a hefty amount of glycolic acid and given that it is cheaper than Glow Tonic this is THE definition of a good dupe.
