While Target trips usually begin with great intentions of grabbing just a few essentials only to find you leaving with 90 items including a potted plant and a Slip 'N Slide, you might want to make room in your cart for just *one* more thing. Because that's where you'll find our latest beauty addiction—soon to be yours too—and something that's been a beauty addiction of many for years over in the U.K. Enter: PIXI by Petra Collection's Glow Tonic.

The tonic, which is now available in the U.S. for the first time starting this month, is an essentially magical toner—so magical, in fact, that it has a diehard British fanbase and it regularly sells out in the U.K. (#WaitList)

Why? It accelerates cell renewal for smoother, brighter, and clearer skin thanks to its 5% glycolic acid, and it also features aloe vera, ginseng, and botanical extracts to give you that holy-shit-your-skin-looks-great glow. Plus, it's alcohol free—so it won't make your face flake central.

"Glow Tonic has been extremely well-received by PIXI by Petra fans all over the world and we're thrilled to officially introduce it to Target's guests in the U.S. this fall," founder Petra told us when we called her up about the launch. "This product has already been such an incredible success because it does what is says it does: through quality ingredients it delivers radiant results."

That's all fine and good, but you might be wondering, does it actually work? To which I say two things: 1) I've been using it for a week and the other day my colleague told me my skin looked "amazing," 2) Do you really need more than that?
