The $15 Exfoliator Kim Kardashian West Says Is Her Favorite (that I also love!)

Because we all know KKW has GREAT skin (and this product is also one of my faves)…

Back in March 2017 I wrote this post on a few of my new beauty favorites, and when I saw yesterday that Kim Kardashian West, current queen of the beauty world, dubbed the Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner as one of her favorite drugstore skincare products, I knew I had to revive my OG post and talk about why I love this product.

First off, I think the word “toner” throws you off a bit here. Yes, it is a toner but really it’s more of an exfoliator and that’s why it’s VIP in my book.  Formulated with 5% glycolic acid (a major key exfoliating ingredient), this liquid exfoliates, brightens and smoothes your skin.  Personally, I love using it every other day or so just to get rid of any dry/rough patches I might have (which I always seem to have, natch), and I love that it’s alcohol-free and has other really hydrating ingredients like aloe vera, ginseng and botanical extracts to counter balance to glycolic and give your skin a glowy boost.

You can use it morning or night (I prefer morning) and you use it AFTER cleansing- that’s important to note because you only want to use this on clean skin.

Step 1: Cleanse your face with your favorite cleanser

Step 2: Saturate a cotton pad or, even better, an eco-friendly product like The Mitty! (full disclosure: they’re my marketing client but I’m totally hooked since they’re super gentle on the skin and also help to reduce waste). Once you saturate your Mitty or cotton pad, you sweep it across your face, neck and chest.

Step 3: Follow with a serum or moisturizer

Also, as Kim says, “you can still find really effective skincare items without having to spend a lot of money” and I’ve always 100% agreed.
