I haven’t done a skincare round up for quite a while now. I’ve noticed that Pixi are making more and more of an appearance in my beauty routine now so I thought I’d share what I’ve got.
Pixi x Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse
I’m a BIG fan of Queen Hirons and as soon as this product came out I couldn’t get my hands on it quick enough. It’s a product that I’ll reach for time and time again especially if I’ve been out in the evening and I’ve had a heavy load of makeup on. There are two sides to the pot – a solid oil for your first cleanse and gentle cream side for your second step. The solid oil contains evening primrose oil, vitamin E and camellia oil whilst the cream contains ingredients that help with renewal and elasticity, and helps promote collagen.
Probably the most iconic product of the whole skincare range. I’ve had this product in my arsenal for a good 3 years now. It is gentle enough to use everyday with the aloe vera but also does a great job at brightening my skin up. The toner will exfoliates and purify the skin with Glycolic Acid. It gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion whilst balancing, healing and soothes for radiant, healthier looking skin
Hydrating Milky Mist
This is a fairly new product to me. I was introduced to this product by Steph of Priceless Life of Mine. Hyaluronic Acid hydrates by holding moisture on the skin, it also works as an antioxidant, prevents loss of elasticity, stimulates collagen and plumps the appearance of the skin. The idea is that you mist this onto your face, use your HA product and then do another spritz. I’ve used this product just on an adhoc basis at the moment and I love that its versatile. It’s great before makeup to moisturizes & preps, at nighttime as the perfect first layer of moisture and then anytime to give a burst of hydration.
Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel
I use this as my second cleanse if I’m not using the aforementioned Double Cleanse. I want it to clean my face, not take my makeup off. Containing glycolic acid, aloe vera, horse chestnut extract and ginseng, it’s formulated into a lightly exfoliating gel textured cleanser. It’s actually pretty mild formulation wise but not strong enough to tackle makeup remover. I’m not sure if I’ve done a bit of a glycolic acid overload but I’ve had a bit of a break out so I’ve held off using this for a week just to allow my skin to calm down again.
Vitamin C Skin Serum
This brightening and antioxidant serum ‘provides a boost of immediate and long term radiance’. My skin looks much brighter and some of my darker pigmentation hidden under my fringe has started to fade. It’s a super lightweight formula that isn’t ‘sticky’. I apply a couple of drops of serum after I cleanse my face and right before I apply my moisturizer in the morning. The serum contains ferulic acid, which as Pixi says is: “proven to reduce the effects of sun damage & free radicals, helping to improve skin tone and creating a smoother complexion.”
I’ve never tried a Pixi skincare product that hasn’t delivered. A good proportion of the range is Vegan, and it is 100% entirely Cruelty Free so it’s a winner all round.
