I used Pixi by Petra Retinol Tonic day and night as a toner step.  I applied with a cotton pad after cleansing my skin and then layered my serum in the evening or sunscreen in the morning over it.  I didn't experience any stinging or uncomfortable feeling, and my skin felt smooth and refreshed.
Within just a few days I could see how much brighter and smoother my complexion looked. Pixi by Petra Retinol Tonic is the perfect companion product to add to your skincare routine, especially if you've never tried a retinol product before.

Note: Pixi by Petra Retinol Tonic should not be used with skincare products that contain glycolic acid, and if using in the morning, pair it with a good sunscreen to avoid any irritation from the sun with the retinol.  This is the perfect toner to use with antioxidant serums, hydrating essenses and gel-cream based moisturizers.
