Pixi skincare is new to me and conveniently, the holiday season is the perfect time to really indulge on new skincare products at a bargain. For the holidays, Pixi released a bunch of value sets but the two that caught my eye during Black Friday (where they were discounted by 20% at Shoppers Drug Mart) were the Rose Skintreats Besties ($49, Beauty Boutique) and the Glow Skintreats Besties ($49, Beauty Boutique).
Each gift set features two full-sized cleanser and tonics to target different skin needs which makes this a fantastic value if you’ve been wanting to try them out. I know they’ve got a makeup range on top of their skincare, but I haven’t really had the chance to try them out. For someone who’s never tried a single Pixi product, I went all in with the skincare!
Pixi Rose Skintreats Besties
This particular set has two rose-based cleanser and tonic. The Rose Cream Cleanser ($32, Beauty Boutique) is one that I was most excited to try out as my skin loves anything with rose in it. They tend to be more calming and reliable to wear all-year round. I’m not the biggest fan of tube-based cleanser as it can get all over the place and end up being wasted if you squeeze out too much product. Surprisingly, the product is not really rose-scented nor is it pink like the packaging and label would leave you to believe. I’m also a tad bit surprised to see that alcohol is the first listed ingredient.
The Rose Tonic ($20, Beauty Boutique) seems to be more promising though. It is a gentle toner with no alcohol in it which is a promising sign so far. I’m going through a bit of a phase with toners so I’m keen to give this a try. I haven’t used either products long enough
Pixi Glow Skintreats Besties
I’ve heard and read a lot of rave reviews of the Glow Tonic ($32, Beauty Boutique) which was the product that really sparked my interest in the brand to begin with. I’ll do a separate review for the products individually but I wanted to let you know to snag up these sets if you’ve been interested in trying out the skincare brand. They are currently available in-store (they have separate displays for these) at Shoppers Drug Mart, and could possibly go on sale again.
The Glow Mud Cleanser ($32, Beauty Boutique) is one I feel I might not like as much as the rest. It’s a mud cleanser that has glycolic acid in it and may be a little too harsh for my skin. I’ll keep you posted on how this cleanser goes!
