Now, I find it's very unusual to see beautiful packaging containing something equally as beautiful product inside. Quite often one aspect outweighs the other and I think it's not all that common to find something which offers both. However, Pixi Beauty does.
It was one of my new years resolutions to discover more of the Pixi Beauty range and include more of their products into my beauty routine to see if they really are as good as they look.
So, to get myself started I chose four Pixi products from their really pretty section in Marks and Spencer, products which focus on the areas which I would say I give most attention to: my eye makeup, my lips and the general health of my skin.
1. They're Cruelty Free!
First and foremost, Pixi are of course cruelty free which would be my main recommendation for them, but they are also designed to fit easily into your beauty regime with plenty of beneficial ingredients. Their products all have an air of radiance about them and are very gentle on the skin, so they are ideal for sensitive skin sufferers.
2. Exfoliating Glow Tonic
The Glow Tonic is a fantastic facial skin exfoliator and toner, which leaves my skin feeling really firm and tight, (in a good way, not in the way which feels like you've sucked all the goodness out of your skin!) I've spoken in the past about my love for skin accelerators (such as Glycolic acid), as it's ingredients like these which work at removing all the dead skin cells in a gentle way without harming the delicate surface of the skin. After using the Glow Tonic my skin looks healthy, hydrated and radiant.
3. Eye Makeup Remover Pads
I have to say, these little eye makeup dissolving pads remove even the most stubborn makeup (like black eyeliner) really, really easily. With one sweep, the makeup has come loose and that for me is really impressive, as sometimes I have to rub more than I would like to remove makeup - which isn't good. These leave my eyes feeling really fresh and moisturised and I find they are particularly handy after the gym where makeup has ended up underneath my eyes - not a good look!
4. Lip Lift Max
This is not what I initially thought, as it's actually an uplifting lip treatment which has one of those lovely, cooling tingly effects on your lips. This shade is Honey Sheen and it's designed to hydrate and plump your lips - and it does just that! It's a really refreshing treat and has a beautiful shimmer which of course is fantastic on it's own or for adding over any lip colour to help bring those luscious lips to life.
5. MAKEUP MELTING
I go through phases where my skincare regime is on point, where everything is balanced and skin is happy. I find this is helped by regular and consistent use of the same products and my skin reacts quite positively to cleansers and toners. However, we all have those days where it's just going to be tons easier to remove makeup with cleansing wipes and as I've had bad experiences with wipes in the past which have left my skin sore, I can be a bit dubious about using face wipes. However, this is absolutely not the case with these Chamomile Makeup Melting Wipes, they are beautifully soft and remove makeup in no time at all, revealing calm, nourished skin. Oh, and they smell incredible too!
