Brighter skin with Pixi Beauty – Get your glow on + GIVEAWAY!

Brighter skin with Pixi Beauty – Get your glow on + GIVEAWAY!

Hiya bellas,

I hope you had a fantastic long weekend. Even though I don’t celebrate anything this time of year, I’m always glad to have some much needed time off. I lazed around, binged watched series, made some awesome meals and did a tiny (ahem) bit of shopping. Yes some items were makeup if you must know. Another thing I did a lot of was pampering my skin. Tried a couple of new masks, both for the face and undereyes, and will share once I’ve tested them thoroughly. However, I thought I’d show you some products from Pixi Beauty that have really changed the skincare game for me. I’ve been using them for around 3 months now and you wouldn’t believe how much my skin has improved. Some of the Pixi Beauty products were less effective so let’s run through them shall we? But first…

Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic ($29 for 250ml)

People usually save the best for last but today it’s front and centre. The Pixi Glow Tonic has helped clear my skin up tremendously since I began using it. It’s described as an alcohol-free exfoliating toner. Now when people hear or see the words exfoliate, they picture grains or granules sloughing off the dead skin. However, the Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic is non-abrasive and gently exfoliates with 5% Glycolic acid. It contains Ginseng to energize and improve circulation along with Aloe Vera to soothe and hydrate the skin. It helps to minimise the appearance of pores and brightens the overall look of the skin.

Pixi Beauty Skincare Glow Tonic -

That’s the thing with lots of products these days, the lists and lists of claims that need to be proven. I’ve tried many skincare products and this lives up to every single statement I’ve read. My skin looks fresher, more radiant and healthy. I’d even go so far as to say I look younger than I looked a few months ago. It hasn’t diminished any of my marks or acne scarring but the daily exfoliation has made it lighter. It’s made for all skin types but it’s especially great for oily skin because it saps all the sebum out of the pores. Since I have combination skin it’s been a bit tricky. I noticed using it morning and night dried up my skin too much so now I only use it at night before I apply serum. This is my second large bottle already so you know I love it enough to repurchase.

Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic To-Go ($18 for 60 pads)

I stay out of the house quite often so I needed an on the go solution for deep cleansing my skin. I decided to pick up the pads since that means not having to carry cotton rounds wherever I go and I don’t have to worry about leakage. The formula is exactly the same as the liquid glow tonic with 5% glycolic acid. It’s just pre-soaked to be travel-friendly. The pads are textured which is great for an extra bit of exfoliation but they are also thin and flimsy which annoys me so badly. Regardless, the Pixi Glow Tonic pads have saved my ummm, face on many occasions and right now I’m undecided about whether it is an item I would repurchase. Perhaps if I run out, I’ll see whether I can live without it or need it in my life.

Pixi Beauty Skincare Glow Tonic Pads -

Then I picked up this Pixi Beauty Best of Bright Set ($22) which contains 3 deluxe/travel sized products. A glow tonic (100ml), a glow mud cleanser (15ml) and glow mud mask (15ml).

Pixi Beauty Glow Mud Cleanser ($18 for 135ml)

This cleanser smells AH-MA-ZING! It’s the colour of sheer avocado and feels like washing the face with cold cream. Not sure if you’ve ever tried that before. It’s super silky and melts into the skin to lift up all the dirt and deep clean the pores. It also contains 5% glycolic acid to reveal brighter skin and help with that glow. I used it for about 2 weeks and I still have some left. A little goes a long way. Definitely something I would want to repurchase.

Pixi Beauty Skincare Glow Mud Cleanser -

Pixi Beauty Glow Mud Mask ($22 for 30ml)

This mask wasn’t bad but it wasn’t the best either. My skin did feel clean but not in an amazing kinda way. Even though the formula is a bit different, the base of this mask reminds me of the Garnier Charcoal 3-in-1 I reviewed here. Minus the granules since this is a smooth consistency. I much prefer the Garnier one though because it leaves my skin feeling fresh and much more refined. Not something I would repurchase and I think the image on the website is deceiving. They resize the thumbnails to look the same size but in essence compared to the cleanser, you are getting a 1/4 of the product for a higher price. Granted I understand you will use the mask less frequently but it’s just not worth it in my opinion.

Pixi Beauty Skincare Glow Mud Mask -

Update: It was brought to my attention after publishing this review that the Glow Mud Mask contains ingredients from the Dead Sea. According to my religion, we are forbidden to use any such products and thus I will not continue to use it. So please check the ingredients thoroughly on the website before you purchase.)

What’s on my Pixi Beauty Wishlist?

There’s a few other items I’d love to get from the brand so if I place another order here’s what I’d love to get.

Glow O2 Oxygen Mask ($24)

This oxygen treatment mask revives dull, tired skin, providing an immediate anti-fatigue effect –perfect before a big event or makeup application.

Glow Peel Pads ($22)

These highly effective exfoliating pads contain 20% glycolic acid to reveal brighter, healthier, more radiant skin over time.

Overnight Glow Serm ($24)

A concentrated exfoliating gel that helps to reveal a more even & radiant skintone overnight.

They also have an array of makeup products but nothing that I really want.

Price & Where to Buy

So I initially ordered the Glow Tonic and Best of Bright set from Samika for R650 each. Luckily I didn’t have to pay shipping. About a month down the line I knew I wanted to repurchase before I ran out so I placed an order for the Glow Tonic and To-Go Pads directly from the Pixi Beauty website. I found a discount code so I paid $38 (R525) for both items. Shipping and customs with Aramex came to R340 so in total my order worked out to R865. That saved me over R400 which is a lot in my opinion.

Overall Thoughts

I love the items from Pixi Beauty but it is definitely not an affordable skincare option. R400 on toner is crazy even though a bottle lasts me more than 2 months. I might stop buying it in a couple of months if my skin doesn’t need it anymore. The glow pads is a great idea but it can be improved upon if the rounds were thicker. The best of bright set is an amazing way to try multiple products without having to buy the full sized items first.

And to celebrate today, I’m giving away a Pixi Beauty Best of Bright Set to one lucky reader. You guys know the drill, enter below. And I’ve got more giveaways running at the moment so check them out here. Good luck!
