January: a time for change – and new skincare products!
For Christmas, I was thankful to be gifted with some new skincare treats. This included a lot of PIXI Skintreats products – I have been using them ever since. Now, I am in love!
So, I have decided to show you all what products I use and when I use them, while also giving you all a little review too! (Just so you know, all thoughts are my own and this is not a sponsored post! Just showing my love for these products!)
Cleansing my skin
Once per week, I like to use a face mask or sheet mask on my skin. I tend to mix it up a little to try new products. Recently, I have bought the PIXI Glow Mud Mask which I have been using to help my skin look and feel great. So far, this works the same as the Glow Mud Cleanser, giving my skin a lovely and healthy glow. It isn’t a thick mask, but you can build it up if you like. You just leave it to dry, and then rinse! In my opinion, this dries very quickly, so it’s great if you don’t have much time on your hands.
The Glow Mud Cleanser contains an active exfoliant to reveal a lovely healthy glow. Trust me, this works well. Upon using this on the first go, I really could see the results. I also believe that it has seemed to help my mild blemishes a little, and has reduced any scarring left behind. I find that this type of exfoliator works better than any harsh scrubs, which tend to cause irritation, causing more blemishes. I use this roughly once or twice per week, massaging onto my face and neck, and washing off using a muslin cloth soaked in warm water (note: avoid the eye area when using this product).
I use the Rose Cream Cleanser every day when I am not using my Glow cleanser. I use this by applying a small amount over my face and neck in a circular motion. I then wash off using a muslin cloth soaked in warm water. This helps to keep my skin happy and nourished. I find that this cleanser really helps to calm my skin and does not irritate it like some cleansers can. The cleanser contains rose, avocado, chamomile, and aloe vera to soothe and nourish (as stated on the back of the product). As with most of my PIXI skin products, I only own the travel sizes. Therefore, I will definitely need to purchase myself the full-sized products – particularly the cleansers!
After I have cleansed my skin, I wipe the PIXI Glow Tonic over my face and neck using a cotton pad. I use this roughly twice a week, or when I feel like my skin needs a little extra exfoliation and glow. On other days, I mostly use the PIXI Rose Tonic in order to keep my skin calm and nourished. Afterwards, I moisturise using my current favourite moisturiser and/or serum. At the moment, I have been using the PIXI Rose Flash Balm, which is great and can also be used to prime skin as well as a face mask!
In addition to these products, I will use the Vitamin Wakeup Mist, or the Rose Water & Green Tea Makeup Fixing Mist, in order to add a little moisture and boost my complexion. These are also used before and after I apply my makeup, depending on what I need. I find that they both work well, but my favourite is the Rose Water & Green Tea Makeup Fixing Mist, as it tightens my pores and leaves my skin glowing and fresh – which also leaves my makeup looking perfect for hours and hours! I find that the Vitamin Wakeup Mist leaves a dewier finish than the Rose Water spray, which can leave my skin looking slightly shiny over time. However, I do have oily skin, so this would work great if yours is dry!
And that’s that! I don’t like to have a very time-consuming skincare routine, but I also do not like to compromise on keeping my skin feeling cleansed and healthy. These products are quick and easy to use and really show results very fast.
