There are so many products here that I’m going to skip my usual layout of giving you all of the facts and such. Suffice to say this is a round up of the Pixi Spring and Summer 2019 Skin Care. I’m going to be telling you about each of the products in the Pixi Spring and Summer 2019 Skin Care and telling you which I think are worth the splurge. Before we jump in I would like to mention that Pixi products are cruelty free and purchasable at either Pixi’s site or Target, links for each product will be with that product. Without further ado, let’s jump into these Pixi Spring and Summer 2019 Skin Care products.
Pixi T-Zone Peel-Off Mask
The full-size Pixi T-Zone Peel-Off Mask has 1.52 oz. and retails for $22.00 at Target and Pixi. The T-Zone Peel-Off Mask contains avocado to hydrate and smooth the skin, green tea to firm and work as an antioxidant on the skin, and seaweed to condition the skin. The ingredients for the T-Zone Peel-Off Mask are:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Polyvinyl Acetate, Alcohol Denat., Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Phyllostachys Nigra Leaf Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate, Cellulose Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Disodium EDTA. [+/- Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Iron Oxides (CI 77492)]
I had Travis randomly choose how I talked about these, for the most part, and wouldn’t you know it the first one he picked was the one I liked the least. To start-off with I’m not the hugest fan of peel-off masks, I know they have their purposes but that doesn’t mean it can’t gross me out. To go along with that I just KNEW that it had cucumber in it. I HATE products that smell like cucumber and when I put this on, especially right on my nose, all I could smell was freaking cucumber. I looked all over different reviews and I couldn’t find anyone else that mentioned smelling cucumber, however, I didn’t officially know it had cucumber in it until writing this post. I also don’t like how thick of a layer you have to put on to get it to peel-off correctly, especially with that price tag. All that being said, this mask does a great job of cleaning out the pores and making the skin feel nice and firm again.
Pixi DetoxifEYE Hydrogel Eye Masks
The full-size Pixi DetoxifEYE Hydrogel Eye Masks contain 30 pairs of eye masks and retail for $24.00 at Target and Pixi. The DetoxifEYE Eye Masks contains hyaluronic acid to provide hydration to the under eye and come with a spatula to help remove the patches from the jar. The ingredients for the DetoxifEYE Eye Masks are:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Carrageenan, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Pinus Sylvestris Leaf Extract, Caffeine, Gold (CI 77480), Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Rubus Coreanus Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) Leaf Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cellulose Gum, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum, Allantoin, Calcium Chloride, Propanediol, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Niacinamide, Calcium Lactate, Potassium Chloride, Ceratonia Siliqua (Carob) Gum, Maltodextrin, Sucrose, Mica, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Tin Oxide, CI 77491, Titanium Dioxide, Arginine, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Ethyl Hexanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chlorphenesin, Disodium EDTA
I’m so happy that Pixi has added eye masks to their skin care products, even if they had to make the name as difficult to explain as possible. When I first opened the jar I looked at those super slippery eye masks and thought, whelp these aren’t going to dethrone the Skyn Iceland Eye Masks which are my favorite. When I used the included spatula for the first time I was FOR SURE that they weren’t dethroning them. THEN I used them and OMG I love how these feel. Due to the Skyn Iceland Eye Masks being that paper material they can be a little tight on my under eye area as they dry. I did not have this issue with the Pixi Eye Masks and once you use that spatula a few times you actually start to get the hang of it. Skyn Iceland sells 8 pairs for $30 while Pixi has 30 pairs for $24. I will say the only bonus to the Skyn Iceland is that you can use them as shadow shields if you do your shadow first but I don’t know if that bonus beats out the price when Pixi is just as good if not better.
Pixi Glow Tonic Serum
The full-size Pixi Glow Tonic Serum has 1.01 oz. or 30 mL and retails for $24.00 at Target and Pixi. The Glow Tonic Serum contains glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin. The ingredients for the Glow Tonic Serum are:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Glycolic Acid, Polysorbate 20, Ammonium Hydroxide, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Arginine, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Parfum/Fragrance, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Retinyl Palmitate, Triethanolamine, Cyclohexasiloxane, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Lecithin, Cyclopentasiloxane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sucrose, Xanthan Gum, BHT, Disodium EDTA
I have a couple of thoughts on the Glow Tonic Serum, both good and bad. Starting with the good, I LOVE how Pixi packages their serums/face oils. They always come capped like what you see in this picture BUT they also come with this glass dropper inside the box that you can switch to if you remove the cap and stopper out of the bottle. Secondly, Pixi usually does an amazing job with their serums/facial oils to the point where the ONLY one I was disappointed by was the Rose Oil Blend and that was only because it had pomegranate in it which I am allergic to. Soooooo I was disappointed by the fact that I couldn’t use it! Now to the bad, which really isn’t bad, using this in combination with other Glow Tonic products. The next product I’m going to talk about is the Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel and Pixi already had the Glow Tonic Toner. I personally feel that if you’re already using one or two of these products you probably don’t need to add a third to your routine, especially your daily routine.
Pixi Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel
The full-size Pixi Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel has 4.57 oz. or 135 mL and retails for $18.00 at Target and Pixi. The Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel contains glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin and aloe to soothe the skin. The ingredients for the Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel are:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Methyl Gluceth-10, Ethoxydiglycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Butoxydiglycol, Glycereth-26, Diglycerin, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Extract, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Glycolic Acid, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Ananas Sativus (Pineapple) Fruit Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Water, Lactobacillus Ferment, Diethoxydiglycol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Phenoxyethanol, Polysorbate 80, Parfum/Fragrance, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Panthenol, Betaine
Okay so the thing that I was most intrigued by is that Pixi advertises the Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel as having Horse Chestnuts in it, it’s contained inside of a proprietary blend called Moisclean. Moisclean contains glycolic acid, aloe, ginseng, and horse chestnut. We of course know that glycolic acid is used for exfoliating and that aloe is used to soothe skin and provide hydration. You may not know that ginseng in skin care is used to improve circulation. I had no idea what horse chestnut even was, let alone what it did in skin care but in my research I found that it also helps improve circulation and helps with eczema which explains a few things. Ultimately if I was going to keep only one Glow Tonic product in my routine THIS would be the one!
Pixi Glow Glycolic Boost Sheet Mask
The full-size Pixi Glow Glycolic Boost Sheet Mask has 3 sheet masks and retails for $10.00 at Target and Pixi. The Glycolic Boost Sheet Masks contain glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin. The ingredients for the Glycolic Boost Sheet Masks are:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Glycolic Acid, Red Ginseng Extract, Aloe Arborescens Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Callus Culture Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Castanea Sativa (Chestnut) Seed Extract, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Seed Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Asiaticoside, Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-yuen Seed Extract, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Trehalose, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA
The box of Glycolic Boost Sheet Masks comes with three masks to a box that average about $3.33 per mask. That isn’t a horrible price at all and these masks are SATURATED with serum and they fit super well on the face. I highly recommend picking up a box of these and stretching them over a few weeks.
Pixi pHenomenal Gel
Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Glycereth-26, Betaine, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Isododecane, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Citric Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Retinyl Palmitate, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Tocopherol, Isohexadecane, Trehalose, Panthenol, Polysorbate 80, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Allantoin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA
I actually find this product to have a super cool concept behind it, although I don’t really have a way of telling if it’s really doing anything or not. The concept for the pHenomenal Gel is that it balances the skins pH, similar to the way that a toner does. If you’re a believer that toner does nothing for the skin (it actually does BUT that’s a different post for a different day) then this product would probably be a skip for you. However, if you duo (or more, like I do) cleanse and you’re for sure that you got all of the makeup off of your skin you could use this as a toner/moisturizer combo combining two steps.
Pixi Glow Mud Mask
The full-size Pixi Glow Mud Mask has 1.52 oz. or 45 mL and retails for $22.00 at Target and Pixi. The Glow Mud Mask contains kaolin clay to purify and sea salt to detoxify the skin. The ingredients for the Glow Mud Mask are:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Kaolin, Sea Silt (Mediterranean and Dead Sea Mud), Diatomaceous Earth, Bentonite, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Squalane, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Arctium Lappa Root (Burdock) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Panax (Ginseng) Root Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polysorbate 20, Chlorphenesin, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance, Dead Sea Salt, Iron Oxide (CI 77499), Citric Acid
Due to this mask being a clay mask and my skin being as dry as the Sahara, I have to be careful with how I use this mask. Being a clay mask it is meant to purify and therefore pull oil from the skin. I treat the oil in/on my skin like it’s a precious commodity, because it is! However, there are some places where I need a clay masks’ help, I’m looking at you t-zone pores -.- If you have combination, normal, or even better oily skin then you’ll LOVE this mask. If you have dry skin with some problem areas you’ll like this mask as a once-a-week spot treatment. However, if you have dry skin and don’t have any issues like that then you’ll probably want to give this mask a skip.
Pixi On-the-Glow Multi-Use Moisture Stick
The full-size Pixi On-the-Glow Multi-Use Moisture Stick has 0.67 oz. or 19 g and retails for $18.00 at Target and Pixi. The Multi-Use Moisture Stick contains Vitamin D12 which works as an antioxidant for the skin. The ingredients for the Multi-Use Moisture Mask are:
Diisostearyl Malate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Triethylhexanoin, Ceresin, Ozokerite, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Phytosteryl/Isostearyl/ Cetyl/Stearyl/Behenyl DimerDilinoleate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ergosterol, Caffeine, Ascorbic Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, Glycolic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Hydrogenated Castor Oil Isostearate, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopherol, Aqua/Water/Eau, Butylene Glycol, Silica, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491, CI 77492 (Iron Oxides)
This might be, hands down, one of my favorite products from the Pixi Spring and Summer 2019 Skin Care. You can use this stick all over the face to add a healthy glow to the skin. You can use this stick to add a glow to just the high points of the face. You can use this stick to hit the shoulders and add a healthy glow to those. You can use this stick all over and a healthy glow to the skin in general. Supposedly, you can also use this stick on the hair and add a healthy shine to that as well but I didn’t go that far. I’ll do anything for the blog but I won’t do that…
Pixi Cleansing Cloth
So sadly Pixi does not sell this Cleansing Cloth on their site, that I could find anyway. However, I wanted to talk about it for two reasons. Reason 1, if you EVER see this cleansing cloth pop up on their site, GRAB IT!!!! I don’t care if it’s a free gift with purchase and you have to purchase the ugliest lip stick you’ve ever seen in your life, I find this highly unlikely since Pixi makes beautiful lippies but just go with me. You can always give that fugly lipstick to a frenemy (I know you have them), you can give it to the lady walking down the street for all I care. The point is that this cloth is worth it. Which brings me to Reason 2; if Pixi never ever adds this as an option to purchase please, please, PLEASE (said in Charlotte’s voice from Princess and the Frog) go out and find you the SOFTEST cloth you can find to wash your face with it. Even being a Cosmetologist, I didn’t think the feel of the cloth made a difference when it comes to wiping off your face. Oh my lanta does it make a difference! The softness not only makes for a better experience of having a super soft cloth going over your face but it actually made a difference in the feel of my skin as well. Now I’m not saying go out and spend $10 – $20 on one, you can actually just get a baby washcloth and use that!
Pixi Spring and Summer 2019 Skin Care Final Thoughts
If it’s one thing that Pixi does well it’s skin care. I’m not trying to blow smoke at you, their skin care products are some of my favorite products overall and not just sticking with the brand. Do you need every single item pictured above, no. Would I recommend you go out and purchase every single item above, no. However, if you do want to do that, please feel free to send some of that money over my way (just kidding!). Seriously though, when it comes to the Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel and the Glow Tonic Serum you probably only need to grab one of those, especially if you’re already using the Glow Tonic Toner. When it comes to the Glow Mud Mask and the T-Zone Peel-Off Mask you could probably get away with doing one or the other. My suggestions for this round of Pixi Spring and Summer 2019 Skin Care to purchase are get a soft cleansing cloth (the baby washcloths are fine as long as it’s a good quality brand), the Glycolic Boost Sheet Masks are a good mask to have on hand for everyone, the Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel is the Glow Tonic product of choice for me personally, the pHenomenal Gel is a great product for those looking to combine steps like toner and moisturizer, and the DetoxifEYE Masks are AMAZING eye masks to have on hand.
