PIXI Collagen Tonic – Review

Pixi is a trendy brand with a range of toners targeting various skin concerns. As I have crossed 30, I am explicitly investing in products to maintain my skin hydration and elasticity. Collagen is known to be a very important factor in maintaining our skin elasticity and making our skin look firm. As we grow older our skin’s natural collagen level production rate decreases gradually. Now, this is inevitable that we will age but we can follow a good skincare routine and diet with various ingredients which can promote collagen production and which in turn will make our skin look well taken care of. I purchased the Pixi botanical collagen tonic recently and have been using it for more than 3 weeks now. Let me tell you first, that I really liked this collagen tonic.

Price and Quantity: It comes in two sizes. The 100 ml bottle costs INR 1400 and the 250 ml bottle costs INR 2700. I think a 100 ml bottle will go a long way and if you are going to purchase it for the first time, it makes sense to try the 100 ml version.

Product Description: A volumizing tonic helps to smooth fine lines and improve uneven skin texture. Formulated with acacia collagen, peptides and botanicals to rejuvenate the skin while helping promote a youthful-looking complexion.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Propanediol, Glycerin, Betaine, Acacia Seyal Gum Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Sea Salt Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Coenochloris Signiensis Extract, Magnesium Chloride, Potassium Chloride, Zinc Chloride, Sodium Chloride, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-37, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Cupressus Sempervirens Leaf/Stem Extract, Cucumis Melo Cantalupensis Fruit Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Extract (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Amyl Cinnamal, Linalool.

Ingredients Analysis: The good thing is that this collagen tonic is completely alcohol and paraben free. I could not neither spot fragrance in their ingredients list nor actually smell anything, So, that’s great too. This is a water-based toner with coconut water as the second ingredient. Coconut water has some great skin benefits because it contains multiple vitamins including vitamin c. It is known to be great to maintain skin elasticity. The third and fourth ingredients are propanediol and glycerine. Both of them help to lock moisture in the skin. That is why after using this toner I felt I can get away even without using a moisturizer. It also contains acacia seyal gum extract which is known for its skin-smoothening properties. Overall the ingredients list looks pretty good to me.

My take on the Pixi Collagen Tonic:

  • Let’s start with the packaging. It comes in a green plastic bottle with a slightly pinkish-brown liquid. You basically need to pour the tonic on your palm and dab it on your face. This type of packaging ensures you get the maximum of the product. I prefer spray bottles but I think that will lead to losing a lot of product. The 100 ml version is quite travel-friendly and there is no chance of product spillage.
  • From the price point of view, I know there are a lot of toners maybe at a cheaper price point but a 100 ml bottle of this collagen tonic will go a long way. Also, the next point will tell you why I really liked this tonic.
  • The main claims of this product are to smooth skin texture, reduce fine lines and rejuvenate skin. I can’t comment about reducing fine lines yet but this toner definitely has smoothened my skin texture and made it look firmer and well-hydrated. As I mentioned earlier, this toner has a very strong moisturizing property. It gives me instant hydration and maintains the moisture level. My skin looks smooth and supple noticeably post using this toner. It also did not cause me any kind of irritation. In fact, it always feels like this toner soothes my skin post cleaning my face with a face wash. So, every morning after cleaning my face I pour 5-6 drops of this tonic and dab it on my face with my palm. It instantly gets absorbed. After waiting for 2-3 minutes I apply my serums/lightweight moisturizer and sunscreen and it has never caused any irritation.

Now let me quickly list down the pros and cons of the Pixi collagen tonic

Pros:

  • Gives instant hydration and locks moisture
  • Makes skin look well-hydrated, smoother and firmer
  • Alcohol, paraben free
  • Suitable for any skin types

Cons:

  • A bit costly

I am surely going to continue using this collagen tonic and will recommend you try this out. Let me know if you found this review helpful. Have a nice day 🙂
