Spoiler alert. All but one of these Skintreats worked for me. Here’s the low down.
Sidenote: Since most of my audience is composed of Canadian baddies, you can pree all of these at Shoppers Drugmart, but I will also leave links down below.
Rose Cream Cleanser Skintreat
I give this a solid 9/10. It’s extremely gentle, and it has a subtle rose scent, rather than the obnoxious heavy rose fragrance lots of companies have been doing lately. It’s creamy and doesn’t froth which is always a good sign for me. Actually, here’s a fun fact. Many soaps are made to froth, regardless of it adding any value because mentally we associate frothing with being cleaner. In terms of ingredients, I rate this company for having most of their ingredients pronounceable and easy to understand. More info about the cleanser here on Pixi’s site.
Glow Mud Mask Skintreat
I haven’t used this enough times to notice any lasting changes to my skin. Just keeping it real. What I will say though is it preps your skin as an amazing base for makeup. The texture is thin which is refreshingly different for a mud mask. It smells really earthy with it’s main ingredients being: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Kaolin, and Sea Silt (Mediterranean and Dead Sea Mud). Pixi’s site has a full list of ingredients and benefits for the Glow Mud Mask here.
Peel & Polish Skintreat
The first time I used this I noticed my skin tingling. If you have more sensitive skin, know that the more you use it, the less you feel the effects of the natural fruit enzymes. I really enjoy the texture of the grit of this too. It’s a medium size, medium density grit, so it’s not going to hurt if you have sensitive skin, but it gets the job done. Check out the Peel & Polish here.
Glowtion Day Dew Skintreat
I was the most excited for this moisturizer and was surprised to see that it was my least favourite. When I tried this on in indoor lighting I was thinking, “this is la bomba”. Then I went into the natural sunlight and everything went downhill from there. It was a nightmare of sparkles all over my face. If you’re not stepping out into daylight with this you should be okay, but personally, I’ve just using this as a night time moisturizer to avoid the My Little Pony vibes.
That’s the scoop.
