Pixi is brand I’ve been intrigued with for a longtime. I’m not sure what was holding me back from trying out their products. Perhaps it was the idea that when I shop at target for beauty things, I’m usually in a drugstore spending kind of mood and Pixi is on the high end of drugstore pricing. But after seeing post after post and review after review raving about this brand I had to give it a try. So, naturally I started with a fan favorite, the Pixi Glow Tonic.
The Pixi Glow Tonic has been on my to-try list for ages. But it wasn’t until I learned some off-putting things about some physical exfoliants I had been using that made me rethink my exfoliation routine. I’d always gravitated to physical exfoliants like scrubs because they make my skin feel so smooth and clean. Having oily skin, sometimes there’s no better feeling than scrubbing away the dirt, grime, and oils from my pores at the end of the day. So, it was hard to imagine that a chemical exfoliant like this Pixi Toner could make the cut. Boy was I wrong. The Pixi Glow Tonic includes glycolic acid penetrates deeply into the skin, removing the top layer of dead skin to help clear up acne and blackheads, as well as reduce fine lines, oiliness, and brighten up the complexion. It also includes aloe vera to help soothe the skin and ginseng to help brighten and fight aging. I love using this in the morning to tone and prep my skin for the day. It’s done a great job of shrinking my pores and reducing my blackheads.
The next product I picked up was the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse. Being a committed double cleanser, I was so excited when this product released. This product contains a solid cleansing oil to break down makeup and a cleansing cream to cleanse, protect, and plump the skin. So far, I’m obsessed with the cleansing oil. It melts quickly and luxuriously into the skin, breaking up makeup effortlessly. I like to remove it with a warm wet washcloth. You follow up with the cleansing cream, which removes all remaining traces of makeup while gently cleansing and moisturizing the skin. Hopefully, Pixi comes out with separates of these products, because I could see myself repurchasing the cleansing oil again and again.
The last product I’ve tried from Pixi is the Sun Mist spf 30. This is a spray facial sunscreen with chamomile and bamboo extracts. Chamomile is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps reduce scarring from acne and fight breakouts as well as the signs of aging. Bamboo extract, aka bamboo water, has high amounts of silica which supports collagen production for healthy supple skin. So far I’ve been really enjoying this product. I apply it to my skin after moisturizing every morning as my sunscreen. The one thing I don’t like is the spray nozzle because it doesn’t spray a fine mist. Other than that, this sunscreen is great because it’s fast absorbing, smells great, isn’t oily or greasy and hasn’t broken me out.
**Update: The Pixi Sun Mist ended up breaking me out really bad after using it for a few weeks. I had to stop using it. So those with acne prone skin, be warned.
So far I’m really impressed by all the skincare Pixi has to offer. I have enjoyed if not loved everything I’ve tried so this brand gets a big thumbs up for me. I definitely recommend checking out some of their products. Now I’ll have to test out their makeup too! Looking for more skincare picks? Check out this recent post about natural skincare.
