The Pixi PR team has been so generous in the past year, sending me lots of goodies to play with! I’ve fallen in love with many Pixi products but delayed trying their skincare products for a long time. Recently, they sent a huge package of Pixi Rose Infused Skintreats so I decided to finally give it a try.
I tend to stay away from skincare products made by makeup brands. I just feel that skincare is much more scientifically based whereas makeup is a lot more creative. But these products looked so beautiful so I decided to give it a go! There are 8 products in the Pixi Rose Infused Skintreats range and I used the collection for about 3 weeks.
Rose Cream Cleanser
To start off your skincare routine, use the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser to remove oils and impurities from the skin. I thought this would be pink colored but it’s actually a beige color with grainy particles inside. It does not physically exfoliate the skin though and is quite gentle and soothing. Definitely for those who enjoy cream cleansers as this one does not foam up at all. I’m not sure if it’s very appropriate to use around the eye area so I took a point off. 4/5
Pixi is extremely famous for their Glow Tonic which is a potent blend of glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin. The Pixi Rose Tonic on the other hand is a rather gentle blend that aims to tone and calm the skin. It has a beautiful rose scent that makes my nighttime routine feel like a spa session. The first five ingredients are: water, rose flower water, propanediol, glycerin, and aloe leaf juice. 5/5
Rose Caviar Essence
This is the most innovative product in the Pixi Rose Infused Skintreats collection and definitely the prettiest to look at. The packaging is a see through so you can admire the beauty inside. The pink spots you see are actually concentrated flower oils and it’s suspended in a transparent essence. It was actually a bit frightening the first time I used it because the flower oils are quite red when smushed, and it didn’t spread as easily as I thought. However, if you keep massaging it into the skin, the color will disappear and sink in. The ingredients in the Pixi Rose Caviar Essence are amazing and packed with natural oils. The feel of this product is very fresh and feels more like a watery serum than any oils. My skin still feels dry immediately after applying this though so I don’t think it’s a super hydrating essence. I like it because it’s so unique and pretty to look at. 4/5
Rose Flash Balm
The Pixi Rose Flash Balm was actually the first product I pulled out to try and unfortunately really didn’t like it. I was intrigued because the product can be used as a moisturizer, mask, or primer. The texture is quite thick, similar to pore filling primers. When rubbing into the skin, it has a bit of a bounce to it and feels slippery. The scent is absolutely amazing. It’s the most pure rose smelling product in the collection. However, my skin felt tight within 5 minutes. I would even put on a thick layer but my skin would be dry in just a short while so I’m not sure why it doesn’t work for me. Unfortunately not pictured but it’s in a pink tube similar to the cream down below. 2/5
Rose Ceramide Cream
For a daily moisturizer, the Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream is what I’ve been using every night. I’m on the fence about this because although it feels very moisturizing right after applying, I don’t think it provides the hydration and nutrients my skin needs. It is possible to use a very thin layer of this cream. But my skin feels tight after a few minutes so I apply a thicker layer. However, I feel that layer sits on the skin a bit too much and does not sink in like some of my favorite face creams. 3/5
Rose Oil Blend
Another very pretty product in this collection is the Pixi Rose Oil Blend. I remember face oils were all the rage but I honestly have not fallen in love with any of them. This one is pretty similar to other face oils in the market. I find it sinks into the face nicely but the palms of my hands are usually very greasy and I’d have to wash it off. The scent is nice and reminds me of the Boscia Tsubaki facial oil. My skin was not dry the next morning but it didn’t feel supple or smooth. 2/5
Rose Glow Mist
I like having a facial mist at work to refresh during the day. The formula of the Rose Glow Mist contains 7 different flower oils but only olive oil makes the makes the top 5 ingredients. I find that face mists all function similarly with a nice scent and a brief revival to the skin. The nozzle is one of the most important contributing factors to whether I like a mist or not. This product had a nice fine mist of hydration and the smell is lightly scented of roses. I like it a lot for a pick me up. Unfortunately not photographed but its similar to the mist below but more pink. 4/5
Makeup Fixing Mist
I don’t use makeup fixing sprays on a daily basis but usually pull out my Urban Decay All Nighter for special events. It’s really important for the mist to be fine so it doesn’t dilute any part of your makeup. Unfortunately I find the liquid particles too large and the spray does not distribute evenly. It’s weird because it’s the same nozzle as the Rose Glow Mist but the Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist is not a fine mist at all. The scent does not quite smell like rose water & green tea but more so a face powder. 2/5
Left to right: Rose Cream Cleanser, Rose Caviar Essence, Rose Ceramide Cream.
Although my skin didn’t look dry or flaky, it didn’t feel hydrated or comfortable. I had a few breakouts as well although I can’t solely attribute it to these skincare items that I’m testing. I found my nose and pores area a little rough. Overall, I think the products didn’t provide the deep nourishment my skin needs. But there are still a few products I’d recommend especially if you love the rose scent. I think if it was during the summer time, my skin would have reacted better to this collection. I do like the Rose Caviar Essence for how unique and pretty it is. The Rose Tonic is also a very nice calming toner.
