People ask me all the time for an affordable and effective skin care and color cosmetics line, and I am always recommending Pixi Beauty. If you haven’t picked some up at Target yet, you really need to do so pronto – Pixi has tons of wonderful options. More of an online shopper? Their website is easy to navigate and they always have great specials. I recently tried some Pixi skin care and today I have three treats to share with you.
Pixi Beauty skin care has terrific packaging that keeps the efficacy of the ingredients intact. I love the aesthetic, and the skin care theory is that skin should have a GLOW. Exfoliated, hydrated, and treated skin has a natural glow that is only enhanced with great cosmetics, so Pixi Beauty skin care gives a wonderful foundation for their color cosmetics.
• A deep pore cleansing mud, enriched with 5% glycolic and soothing botanicals
• Formulated to provide effective cleansing, yet is mild enough for all skin
• Complexion is cleansed and gently exfoliated to reveal radiant and healthy skin
• Deep pore cleansing leaving skin clean and glowing
• Gently exfoliates and revitalizes
• Mud deep cleanses
• Glycolic acid enhances complexion’s glow
I am a big believer in double cleansing and always use a separate makeup remover first – I find that this helps treatment-type cleansers like this one be effective and do the job they are meant to do. So keep in mind I first use a makeup remover, and after that I find the Glow Mud Cleanser to be very gentle exfoliator that is almost deceptive in its subtlety. I hardly notice that it is scrubbing or exfoliating my skin. But over time it does a great job of decongesting pores, removing dead skin, and removing excessive oiliness. I think this is a great exfoliating cleanser, especially for those with sensitive skin that is normal to oily.
If you are a fan of the Glow Tonic, then you will definitely love the Pixi Glow Tonic To-Go ($18). This is a jar of pads that are pre-soaked in the beloved Glow Tonic, the alcohol-free 5% glycolic acid that keeps skin clear and bright. It’s a dream come true for anyone traveling or camping. These are so much easier to take in the car for a weekend away, or even to the gym to wipe down your face and neck after a workout.
These pre-soaked pads tone, brighten, hydrate, and gently exfoliate.
• Skin looks clearer & feels smoother.
• The ultimate travel-friendly, gentle skin renewal
• Formulated with 5% Glycolic Acid
• Suited for all skin types
No need to rinse after using a pad, just follow up with a treatment serum. And I just happen to have a great recommendation for you from Pixi Beauty, imagine that!!
The Pixi Overnight Glow Serum ($24) is pretty close to perfect. The packaging is fabulous – it keeps all the ingredients intact and ensures their integrity and efficacy. The ingredients include 10% glycolic acid and arginine, which really will make your skin look amazing and glowy. Your wrinkles and fine lines will start to fade and your skin tone will even out. The exfoliation is soothed by cucumber and aloe vera, plus there lots of antioxiants like vitamins A, C, and E as well. This is a great workhorse serum that your skin will absolutely love.

The combination of these three products – first the Pixi Beauty Glow Mud Cleanser for initial cleansing and exfoliating, then the Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic To-Go Pads to sweep away any last traces of dirt, tone and smooth skin, and prepare it for treatment, and finally the fabulous Pixi Beauty Overnight Glow Serum to further exfoliate, diminish wrinkles, brighten and nourish skin – give you a dynamic trio that couldn’t result in anything but glowy, gorgeous skin. I hope you head on over to Target soon to these skin care treats for yourself! – Lisa
