Pixi Skincare Review | Best of Bright

October 21, 2017

I love when skincare companies released little trial packs. I love spending minimal money to try lots of things out to find out if it's worth buying. This travel sized pack is $22 USD. I think i'll get maybe a month of regular use from each of samples. They're big enough in size to find out how my skin will react. I haven't noticed a huge change in my acne or pih, but I only use these products about once a week for my skin. I like 2/3 products I tried, but I can't say enough for me to buy/regularly incorporate them into my skincare regime. I think there are products here that others would like. This pack makes an awesome gift.

GLOW MUD CLEANSER

Contains 5% glycolic acid. This gentle yet effective cleanser exfoliates to remove dead skin cells and reveal more radiant and healthy skin. Detoxes pores and deep cleans by drawing out impurities.

I was not a a fan of this cleanser. The fact that it contains mud seems cool, but I find it kind of gimmicky. This cleanser didn't leave my skin feeling clean. Have you ever use a mud face mask and it left a ton of a gross feeling residue/layer that you felt inclined to wash your face with a cleanser. This does that. In fact, I had to wash my face twice just to remove the layer it left. It's thick, smelling and feeling similar to a fragranced clay mask. It does give a bit of a cooling sensation. It doesn't bubble much. I think it cleans, but not as much as I would like.

GLOW TONIC

Exfoliating toner with 5% glycolic acid. Evens out skintone for a brighter, clearer, smoother complexion. Alcohol free. Contains fragrance. 

I don't use this regularly. Deciem is not convinced that daily use of acid peels are good for skin. I really consider that. They say that use of acids cause inflammatory effects that can contribute to accelerated aging. Paula Begoun of Paula's Choice however, speaks very highly of acids.
So I limit use. I use this maybe 2-3 a week. I haven't noticed much difference in my skin but i'm sure it's working. I've had no breakouts or purging. It feels very dry (not much slip or emoliency). It quickly absorbs into skin which I LOVE. I only dislike the very strong old lady perfume fragrance. Why Pixi, it was almost perfect!!!

GLOW MUD MASK


Deep pore clearing, glow-revealing treatment mask. Great for congested, dull and tired skin. Contains ale, ginseng and various muds.

I think this is a great alternative to the expensive Glamglow masks. The colour is oddly satisfying and looks just like the Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. In fact, I think it works the exact same. I can't tell a difference. I don't ever notice huge skin improvements from incorporating a mask into my skincare regime. I think they're best for people with oily skin or large pores. I limit use of masks because I find they dry out my already drier skin. This one is actually not that drying which is nice. I use this about once a week or just on pimples to 'make them smaller'. I have no idea if it works but I like to think it detoxes my pimples. Like many face masks, this leaves a bit of a residue. It also makes your face smell like the floral fragrance it contains. I'm not a mud mask person but this is nice other than the fragrance!

You can buy these products on the Pixi website, Ulta, Sephora AU, ASOS or at Shoppers Drugmart in Canada.
