Get the Glow: Pixi Beauty

About a month ago, Pixi* very kindly sent me some of their glow-inducing products to try out. They've been on rotation ever since and I'm pretty much in love with all of the products. Pixi has definitely upped their game, and the entire Skintreats line is amazing (everyone knows it for the Glow Tonic).

I talked about the Glow Mist a little bit in my Makeup Medley No. 4, but it's become an every day product for me. It's definitely a key to glowy skin, containing 13 natural oils plus aloe vera and fruit extracts, it creates a hydrated and nourished base for makeup. It ALSO works as a makeup-setting mist, somehow managing to both make my makeup look incredibly dewy as well as helping it last. Magic, I tell you. A little side note, but I'm also obsessed with the spray nozzle. Not really sure why that's important, but it is.

The Glowtion Day Dew is a gorgeous lightweight moisturiser that preps the skin beautifully, but also adds an amazing radiance. This is another fab packaging feat from Pixi, as the tube with the pump is the most convenient freakin' packaging ever (don't tell me I'm wrong). The actual product within is a featherlight moisturiser that provides a surprising amount of hydration, but also somehow blurs the skin. It adds radiance with it's tiny shimmer particles, which some people may not like, but I love. If Paula recommends it, you probably need it.

Pixi's nighttime partner to the Glowtion is the Beauty Sleep Cream. This is a much richer, heavier cream to nourish the skin at night, but it still absorbs super quickly and doesn't leave the skin feeling sticky. Heavy creams that leave residue are one of my biggest pet peeves, so I love this. It is super hydrating and smells divine to put on before bed. However, if you have even slightly sensitive skin you might want to stay away as it contains lavender oil. Lavender is a part of the mint family and is a skin irritant, despite the delicious smell. I've been using this for almost a month and haven't noticed any effects, but a word of warning!

Last but certainly not least is the 24K Eye Elixir. I absolutely love cooling rollerballs for the under-eyes and this is no exception. It contains collagen to help repair the skin, peptides to plump fine lines, and apparently raspberry can even skin tone (raspberry has antioxidant properties, antioxidants fight free radicals which cause change in skin tone). In case you couldn't tell it also contains freakin' gold (so luxe) which is supposed to help increase circulation. Now, the other ingredients I'm on board with, but there's no published research that I can find saying that gold has anti-aging properties. Anywho, the product itself is lovely, and I definitely think that the collagen and peptides have helped revive my poor under-eyes which were still suffering from finals.

So far, my introduction to the Pixi skincare line has gone very well! I definitely want to try out the H2O Skindrink next, what are your favourite Pixi products?
