One question I get a lot is: “What’s a good affordable glycolic toner?” or more to the point: “Is there a more affordable alternative to the Pixi Glow Tonic?” Well, I finally have answers to those questions. Today’s post is about the best Pixi Glow Tonic dupe I’ve come across so far, and it is the Freedom Pro Studio Glycolic Radiance Tonic.
When this was first released, it was named the Freedom Pro Studio Glycolic Glow Tonic, but the name was later changed to “Radiance Tonic” instead. Both are the same product.
Freedom London Pro Studio Glycolic Radiance Tonic Review
This claims to be a “professional exfoliating toner that evens out skintone for a clearer, brighter, more glowing complexion. Using a professional formula, enriched with glycolic acid, ginseng and aloe vera, this gentle Tonic helps remove dead skin cells, revealing smoother, softer more radiant skin.”
Let’s talk packaging. This is an amber coloured liquid, pretty much the same colour as the Pixi Glow Tonic. It comes in a standard cylindrical toner packaging. It’s not a spray or a pump toner. It’s just a regular squeeze bottle toner like the Pixi Glow Tonic. It has a very pretty futuristic looking foiled label, which unfortunately is very hard to photograph because it’s very reflective. It’s like trying to photograph a mirror.
On to the actual performance of thus product. It’s a good gentle exfoliating toner. It does not sting or burn, and it hasn’t broken me out. It has a lovely fresh fragrance, which some people might not like. I personally don’t mind, but I know some people are sensitive to fragranced products. I have nothing negative to say about it.
About The Brand.
Freedom Makeup is a UK based brand. It is an arm of Tam Beauty, the same brand that owns Makeup Revolution. Like Makeup Revolution, they’re dedicated to making high quality but affordable alternatives to more expensive cult products. This particular line seems to be targeted at pros, with their fuss-free packaging.
Pixi Glow Tonic Dupe
Like the Pixi Glow Tonic, the Freedom Radiance Tonic is made with ginseng, aloe vera and glycolic acid. They both also contain 5% glycolic acid. Annoyingly, that information wasn’t printed on the label for the Freedom Radiance Tonic, so I had to search the interwebs for it.
The only major difference is that the Pixi Glow Tonic contains more natural ingredients. Most notably, the Freedom Radiance Tonic contains alcohol while the Pixi Glow Tonic doesn’t.
All in all, if your budget doesn’t stretch to the Pixi Glow Tonic, the Freedom Radiance Tonic is an excellent alternative, especially if you have no objections to alcohol in your skincare products.
