It really bothers me that I can’t type the upside-down “i”…
The entire time I was editing this photo, all I could think about was the upside-down “i” and how there was no way I was going to be able to figure out how to type it. Arg. I’m genuinely annoyed but let’s not delve in too deep there. Back to the brand, Pixi! Now I’ve dabbled with Pixi but never really took that good a look at the brand, but in alliance with my new years resolutions, I’m taking steps to up my skincare and Pixi is said to do some great skincare.
While I can’t give you a full low-down on the entire skincare range (unfortunately I haven’t figured out how to grow money on trees yet) I can tell you my general feel of the brand was well as a few highlights from the products I have used.
I first was introduced to Pixi by the infamous Glow Tonic. Everyone and their mother was raving about the Glow Tonic and I decided to try it out, just to see what all the hype was about. While I’m not sure how big a difference it has made on my skin, it’s a very nice product for a reasonable price. The smell is heavenly and it does gently exfoliate which I really like during the summer. It’s perfect at getting all the grime, sweat and other nasty things out of your face during those sweltering months. The Glow Tonic also come in To-Go pads, which I think is completely genius. Especially for keen travelers, lugging around a thousand different kinds of liquids and creams gets to be a pain but these pads are small, portable and absolutely no fuss. I think they’d be perfect for some in flight skincare on a long-haul trip. Literally just open the package or pot, use the exfoliant pad and then dispose. Super easy! Another piece of Pixi’s skincare that I picked up more recently is the Glow Mid Cleanser. While I haven’t been using this long enough to give you a a full review of it, I can say that straight off the bat, I really like it. Just like the Glow Tonic, it’s not an extremely harsh exfoliante which is preferable for those with sensitive or already dry skin. As some of you may know, I’m a sucker for a good mud mask so when I spotted this one, I was instantly intrigued. I think my skin looks a lot healthier after I use this, I’m just not sure how much it’s clearing up my face. If you want a full, in-depth review of this product, let me know in the comments and I’ll get right on it! Lastly, one of my most used Pixi products is a makeup product. It’s the Endless Silky Eye Pen, which is a soft coal liner. I love this liner, it’s actually my preferred liner whenever I decide to use a pencil. As I’ve transitioned into wearing mostly liquid liners, my pencil has fallen out of disuse but I’ll definitely need to make sure I pick it back up and give it some love. I find this liner perfect for lining the waterline and tightline because the coal is so soft and smooth. Lining with a hard coal pencil can be quite painful and something I generally try to avoid.
Pixi as a brand, is incredibly reputable. The creator of Pixi, Petra Strand, has more than twenty years of makeup artist and product developer experience. The products are always high quality while maintaining a relatively low price. The main goal of Pixi is to help women achieve a youthful, healthy glow without spending a lot of time and money. I would highly recommend the brand for anyone looking to try out some new skincare!
