Before I go into talking about this cleanser, I need to thank Sal @ummbaby for spoiling me with this even before Pixi released this gorg cleanser in USA.
Pixi Beauty Claims: This active yet gentle cleanser with 5% glycolic acid exfoliates to reveal a glowing, healthier-looking skintone. Mud deep cleans & detoxifies pores while hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and avocado oil plump & nourish the skin. Leaves complexion feeling smooth & purified.
Packaged in an opaque mint green plastic tube. I’ve used the cleanser now for 3-4 weeks, and realized the font on the tube has started to fade. Who cares about font, moving onto the real jizz locked in that tube.
Nothing jumps negatively at me from the ingredient list. Pixi claims its jam packed with Glycolic acid at 5% which is listed as the seventh ingredient. Other notables includes Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Clay aka Diatomaceous Earth (obvs), Hyaluronic Acid, Squalene and some lovely oil and extract additions (Chamomile, Avocado, Wheatgerm, Hazelnut, Sesame). As for when to use? I’d say as second cleanse or morning cleanse. Please for the love of cleansers, do not remove makeup with this.
Scent wise, some hate some love the aroma of this cleanser. Me…? I love! There is something the scent of clays and muds which make me feel……..connected to the earth. OK I’ll stop on my hippiness.
The texture & consistency is creamy, soft, spreadable, and upon adding some water nicely emulsified. The packaging says apply to damp skin, however I go with slightly damp skin when used as a second cleanse. In the morning, I go for it on dry skin.
The skin feels clean, purified and adds a very subtle glow. If you leave it on as a mask and then wash, its bloody fabulous (my preferred method). It doesn’t even leave the skin dry or tight. However during the winter I add couple of drops of Goodness Labs Chia Seed Oil. Come summer, I know I will blitz through this cleanser.
Generous quantity packed (135 ml/4.57 fl.oz) and available on Pixi Beauty site and now available in Target for $18. Although its incredibly unfair that UK has to pay £18 as well. Ermmmmmmm Seriously?! They should be tops paying £15 with currency conversion and buffer for currency fluctuations. Common Pixi!!!!
Having Said That: It’s still Friggin Excellent Value for Money!!!
