Review FREEDOM Pro Studio Glycolic Glow Tonic

i'm sure many of you heard about the famous Pixy Glow Tonic, well they said that this is their dupe, but i'm not gonna do a comparison (maybe on the ingredients part and price wise only) just because i haven't try Pixi myself.
Product Name :

Size :
200 ml

Price :
w/Shipping+Handling IDR 290.000
(around £ 6 at +Superdrug UK)

Product Description : 
Freedom Pro Studio Glow Tonic is a professional exfoliating Toner that evens out skin tone 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.

Aqua, Butylene Glycol, Hamamelis Virginiana Water, Poloxamer 184, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Benzyl Alcohol, Alcohol, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Urea, Sodium Chloride, Parfum, Dehydroacetic Acid, Disodium EDTA, Glycerin, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Linalool, Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal, Sodium Benzoate, Butylphenyl methylpropional, Potassium Sorbate, CI 15985  

the ingredients for Pixi Glow Tonic :
Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Glycolic Acid, Ammonium Glycolate, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol (and) Fructose (and) Glucose (and) Sucrose (and) Urea (and) Dextrin (and) Alanine (and) Glutamic Acid (and) Aspartic Acid (and) Hexyl Nicotinate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Biotin, Polysorbate 20, Fragrance.

there are some similarity in the ingredients, but not at the same order, that means that the amount of each ingredient that contain in the product are not the same.
that will also make the difference in the result, in my opinion.


The Review :
the product comes in clear with silverish print on the bottle, it looks luxurious at some point. it contain ginseng and aloe vera, maybe that's why it has brownish color.
i lovee the smell, i usually don't like my skincare product to be all about smell (with the exception of Sulwhasoo and my facial oil) but, i actually like this one. it's like sweet herb (?) but i can still smell a faint of alcohol scent.
and that would be the downside for me, that it has alcohol in it, while Pixi Glow Tonic doesn't have alcohol in the ingredient list.
after using it for a month (1 or 2 times a day) truthfully i don't feel any changes on my skin, it didn't break me out nor help to clear my acne and nothing happened with my blackheads too, it still there. it does feel fresher and the smell is nice, but that's it. oh.. and one more thing, this is not moisturizing, maybe the alcohol because it slightly dried my skin. i think it would be more suitable for oily skin.
FYI : i have combination dry and not so much oily on my tzone, acne prone, sensitive and mature skin.

UPDATE : i stopped using it for a while then i started using it again, i noticed after a few days that the whiteheads and blackheads on my nose came out on their own making it easier to extract (or i can just put a nose strip). so i change my thought about "i don't feel any changes on my skin" aside from it made my skin dried, i love what it did to my whiteheads and blackheads.

for price Freedom Glycolic Tonic is £ 6 while Pixi Glow Tonic is £ 18

I bought this pre-order from Rieda +Female Daily Network and this is not available in Indonesia.

Repurchase ? NO YES

UPDATE : by the time i post this review FREEDOM has change their product name into

(disclaimer : this is not a sponsored post, this review was made by my personal experience only, the result on me may not be the same with someone else)

so that's all my post for now... i hope i'll be posting more review soon
