I am very familiar with the color cosmetics from one of the most adorable cosmetics lines, Pixi Beauty. However, Marcia raves about the skin care so I decided to test four of Pixi’s best sellers. Do these cute Pixi Skintreats lives up to their adorable packaging? samples
Beauty Sleep Cream ($30) is a fast-absorbing, nutrient-rich nighttime essential helps to protect, nourish, and hydrate skin while you sleep. With 100% natural mango butter, plus oils of lavender, lemon & bergamot, this cream calms and balances skintone.
This is a very nice nighttime moisturizer, particularly for very dry skin. This winter has been brutal for me so far…the dry indoor heat makes my skin feel like it’s cracking. Whenever I slather this on at night, I wake up with soft, hydrated skin that feels terrific. I thought the lavender might bother me because I can be sensitive to the scent but I have no issues with it at all.
Glowtion Day Dew, $22 lightweight, radiance-boosting moisturizer that soothes while blurring imperfections & giving a lit-from-within glow. Advanced illuminating skin-perfector nourishes & soothes while giving a boost to dull skin. Featherlight and hydrating, this moisturizer imparts a natural-looking radiance to skintone, making it look healthier & more even. Lavender oil calms, kaolin purifies, and mica brightens.
I am always on a quest for some ‘lit from within’ glow and Glowtion Day Dew is a great way to get there. In fact, I think this is my most favorite Pixi skin care product. It’s a lightweight daytime moisturizer that hydrates while also giving skin an instant radiance. You can see the illumination when heavily swatched – luckily, it’s not that dramatic with proper application, but it does give skin a freaking fantastic glow that perks up even the dullest of skin tones. This is a must have!
Glow Mist Gives a glowing, luminous & smooth complexion. Enriched with 13 natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts. Before makeup: hydrates, protects & nourishes. After makeup: sets makeup, adds a dewy finish and protects skin. Anytime: refreshes makeup, hydrates and adds glow.
Normally, my skin is too oily to fully appreciate the wonders of Glow Mist. I’ve actually been able to enjoy it lately with my crazy dry skin. I think it sprays on too wet to set makeup – the mist is heavy and will make makeup run unless you spray well away from your face. But for general refreshing and getting some glow, this is wonderful.
24K Eye Elixir ($22) An anti-fatigue peptide serum that massages away puffiness as it smooths and refreshes the eye area. This multitasker is infused with powerful age-defying ingredients to refresh eyes & prevent signs of fatigue. Collagen helps to repair the delicate eye area, peptides plump fine lines, and raspberry tones skin. Cooling rollerball applicator soothes & encourages circulation around the eye.
This is a wonderful eye treatment that has great ingredients. Where it really shines is for treating puffy eyes. Store this in the refrigerator to keep it chilly and it’s there for you as you pour your morning coffee…just glide the rollerball under your eyes and that puffiness goes away. It just feels so good, too!
Now I know that Pixi by Petra isn’t just for super cute cosmetics. The Skintreats are cute too – and effective. Great stuff at a great price! – Lisa
