Bravura London Toner - a Pixi Glow Tonic dupe?



There seems to be a lot of love for Pixi Glow Tonic lately amongst the beauty blogger community. Ever since skincare goddess Caroline Hirons (from Beauty Mouth) highly recommended it as a P50 dupe, it's popularity has shot through the roof.

One of the complaints I repeatedly read in Pixi Glow Tonic reviews, in fact probably the only complaint, is not about the product but about its availability. Just like P50, it's not available to buy online.


Bravura London toners however, are available to buy online AND come in a variety of strengths to suit different skin types. The Bravura London Revitalising Ginseng Toner with 5% Glycolic Acid in particular is remarkably close to Pixi Glow Tonic ingredients wise.

Lets see a comparison of the ingredients (I've highlighted the matching ingredients for you).

Pixi Glow Tonic

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel, Horse Chestnut Extracts, Propylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid and Ammonium Glycolate, Hexylene Glycol, Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose, UreaDextrin, Alanine, Glutamic Acid, Hexyl Nicotinate, Ginseng Extract, Potassium Atom, Diazolidinyl Urea, Biotin, Pixi Natural Fragrance Oil.

Bravura London Revitalising Ginseng Toner

Ingredients: Deionised Water, Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel, Horse Chestnut Extracts, Glycolic Acid and Ammonium Glycolate, Glycerin, Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose, Urea, Dextrin, Alanine, Glutamic Acid, Hexyl Nicotinate, Ginseng Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Biotin, Polysorbate 20, Fragrant Oil.

Pretty similar huh?


The best thing, the Bravura London toner IS available to buy online and is only £8.39 for 100ml (although I wish they'd create it in a bigger size).


Now, I'm not saying it's better than Pixi Glow Tonic. I haven't used it personally so can't compare results. I'm merely letting you know, if you're having trouble getting hold of Pixi Glow Tonic, then don't fret, there are alternative acid toners available.

  2. I thought exactly the same after heading off to Bravura after reading your review on the dermaflannel - I have Pixi Glow Tonic and feel as if it has made a significant difference to my skin, but I had to wait until some 6 months after reading about it in order to purchase. I will have to purchase this and compare on the skin so to speak but I did think that there is a significant similarity in the the ingredients. Thanks so much for this.

  3. Thanks for writing about this! I've been looking to try something similar to Pixi Glow for awhile and this looks like a good match (if ingredients are anything to go by). I'll be having another read through your Bravura reviews then to see if there's anything else I should try. :)

  4. Thanks for that Andy. I've read Caroline's reviews about Pixi Glow Tonic, but wasn't prepared to try to have to pay through the nose for it to get it here.

    1. You're welcome Ali. I'm the same, someone can produce the best product in the world, but if I have to go out of my way to get it, I'm not interested. At least we have other options available :-)

  7. Great post, this is really good to know. I picked up the Pixi last time they had it available and although I haven’t made up my mind yet I didn’t like the idea that it was going to be difficult to get hold of again so I’ll definitely try this out next.

  8. Ahhh this post makes me so happy! After watching the Caroline Hirons and Pixiwoo YouTube video I have been trying to get either P50 or Pixi Glow Tonic with no success. Little did I know my Bravura toner fits the bill! Thanks for this post it's made me very happy :)
