New year, new skin with Pixi
In December we consume way more tasty treats then we do any other month of the year, leaving our bodies, skin and souls feeling rather glum and dull come January.
A lot of people take up dry January, join a gym or start a diet, but what I would love this January is fresh, glowy, great skin! Yes, you can pile as much make up on to cover those pesky blemishes but having the best skin possible before you apply any make up, will give you that natural glow we all desire. Pixi’s mission is to simply bring out the natural beauty in all women – to make women look like themselves, only better. All their products are pure, awakening & skin-loving products that create a naturally radiant “just had a good night’s sleep” look.
I’ve been trialling out some of their skin care treats and make-up products and I’m so excited to share my thoughts on them and how easy it is to use these products to create fresh glowy skin!
So, let’s start with the skin (in no particular order)….
Clean up with the Nourishing Cleansing Balm. This thick, buttery goodness gently cleanses and leaves your skin feeling like a baby’s bottom, it literally does! It has tiny beads in the butter which feels amazing when you massage it in to your skin, it melts off the make-up easily and has a gorgeous rose scent! I love using this before bed time as you feel so clean, soft and relaxed.
Exfoliate with Glow Peel Pads. We’ve heard ‘Glycolic acid’ in the beauty world in a lot of products, but this is an amazing way to try it out! The pads contain 20% glycolic acid which helps to reveal more brighter and radiant skin over time. It also helps to minimize pores, breakouts and even fine lines… YES PLEASE help me with my early stages of wrinkles (first world problems)! You wipe the pad over the face, leave for 2-3 minutes for them to do their magic and then splash your face with cold water to neutralise the skin. I used these on the back of my hands too and it was like having new skin on my hands, It took ancient fake tan off that I didn’t even know was left on my skin! These are a perfect and easy way to introduce that extra boost in your skin care regime. Don’t let the word acid scare you off, they are enriched with Vitamin E and aloe vera to relax, soothe and nourish the skin!
Mask it up with Glow Mud Mask. This mineral mud mask treatment soaks up all the horrid things in our skin, purifies, energizes and leaves our skin impurity free and feeling FRESH FRESH FRESH! Get rid of all of the excess oils, bad impurities and let it do its work with ginseng and aloe vera, leaving you with balanced skin. It’s a 15 minute facial in a bottle. My favourite thing about this mask is that when it dries, it doesn’t go tight; you can still smile and move your face!
Revitalize your skin with a boost of Hydrating Milky Serum. The first thing I noticed with this serum was the rose flower exact, it wasn’t overpowering at all but it had a divine fresh scent to it. The light nutrient-rich serum soaked lovely in to my skin, it felt silky smooth and hydrated straight away. I love using a serum as it penetrates further in to the skin than a moisturiser does and this one works a dream! It contains jojoba oil, aloe vera and glyercin with holds moisture in your skin giving it a more plumped look. Yes please to hydrated plump skin! My skin often feels dehydrated and this perked it up amazingly!
Moisturise and illuminate (and become a mermaid) with Glowtion Day Dew. I am particularly fussy when it comes to moisturisers, I don’t like anything feeling greasy on my face at all so when this Day Dew soaked beautifully in to my skin and had an amazing glow to it, my face lit up, literally. The lightweight formula gave my skin a massive boost of luminosity and radiance! I put some on the back of my hand in the above picture and you can see the glow. Don’t worry, you aren’t left with an extremely shimmery face, it is a natural glow and I think this should be called Mermaid moisturiser! My skin was hydrated, looked so much healthier and was left with a perfect base to apply make-up.
Get your glow on with Glow Mist. Refresh your skin either before or after make-up with this fruity mist! You can use if before make-up for hydration and nourishment or after make-up to set make-up and add that healthy dewy finish or just anytime you feel you need refreshing. Just like all of Pixi’s products, it gives that glowing smooth complexion in just a couple of spritz!
Deep cleanse and exfoliate with Glow Mud Cleanser. Two things at once, go on then, anything to save time but not to compromise on the quality and results is my best friend. The mud cleanser deep cleans and detoxifies pores (we all need detoxifying in January!) whilst the hyaluronic acid and avocado oil goes in and plumps our skin up and leaves it soft, nourished and oh so radiant. I love using this in the morning before the Glowtion Day Dew as I’m purified and detoxified ready for the day!
Now, we’ve cleansed, exfoliated, masked, moisturised and made our skin as glowy and fresh as it can be. Now to perfect it with Pixi make-up!
The below picture has had no editing at all, I wanted to show you the true glowy results!
So from the Pixi range, I have used the gorgeous Book of Beauty (Touch of Blush £24) on my cheeks, with a choice of 6 bronzers and blushers. I used to top three in the pallet, the bronze for a subtle contour and then the peachy colour for the apples of my cheeks and the slightly shimmery one to sweep over the top to add a highlighting/glowy affect!
Over the eyes I used the Lash Line Ink (Black), this is a super pigmented felt tip style eye liner. The firm nib on the liner leaves you with a lovely clean black, neat finish!
To finish the eyes I topped my lashes with Lash Booster Mascara (Black). I love to load my lashes up with mascara and with this you can! No signs of ‘spider legs’ or clumpy lashes, I love it! It really gives an eye-opening look. You can apply a little for a natural look, or layer up for a more dramatic but still natural look!
Last but no means least, I used Mattlustre Lipstick (Peach Blossom). It plumps and conditions your lips and with a long lasting colour, this lipstick will definitely be a staple in my make-up bag!
All finished off with a spritz of the Glow Mist to set and give my skin a healthy glow!
