PIXI SKINTREATS – MASK AND FACIALS REVIEW
PIXI Beauty sent me this beautiful package with some of their Skintreats to try!
I used the Pixi Peel & Polish last night in place of my usual exfoliators. I have very dry skin and I only exfoliate a maximum of 2x a week.
My skin was feeling a little textured and slightly rough, so it was a great opportunity to put this product to the test. It only takes 2 minutes to use, so it’s very convenient for nights when you want to do something extra for your face but you also want to go to sleep.
I accidentally left it on for 5 minutes, but thankfully suffered no repercussions!
It has little particles which will provide you with extra exfoliation if you choose to massage for 30 seconds when you apply this peel. I did this and when I rinsed it all off I could definitely feel that my face was less textured than before.
I’ve never used a peel&polish hybrid but I have to say I really do like how quick it is and the results I got!
This morning I used the Pixi Glow Mud Mask. I had never used a Pixi mask before, but I love their Glow Tonic so much that I was really excited to use this mask.
I applied it thinly with a mask spreading tool I have from Peter Thomas Roth (when I use my hand I always end up using too much product!). I left it on for 15 minutes during which my dogs were scared of me.
After I washed it off, my face felt tighter (in a good way) and I also looked younger and more radiant, which I know is a temporary effect but I still loved it!
I followed it with my Glow Tonic, which is recommended, and I will say I didn’t dry my face out (which some mud masks do for me). I’ve really enjoyed these 2 products so far and I will for sure repurchase the Glow Mud Mask when I run out.
I have now also used the Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask. I made the mistake of applying it to my chin in addition to the T-Zone, and I ended up having to wash it off in that spot because it wouldn’t peel properly off my chin. That’s probably why it was designed only for use on the T-Zone! *facepalm*
I did enjoy using it and peeling it off, but due to the colouring that’s in the mask (a pretty pearlescent pastel green), I ended up with shimmery particles all over my face after using it, which I did not enjoy.
However it did work well for peeling dirt off my pores, and I don’t mind washing my face after using it to remove the undesired shimmer.
I am so grateful to Pixi for sending me legitimately good products that I actually enjoy!
I’ll try the rest of the products they gifted me in this package soon and let you know what I think.
