I remember around at the time of the birth of youtube, I bought the Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer because Sam Chapman from Pixiwoo said it was brilliant! Back in the day Pixi only had a few products but it was one of those exciting brands that had a lot of potential. Fast forward a good few years Pixi has now joined the ranks of beauty industry royalty and is one of the most popular skincare/makeup brands that thousands of blogs post complimentary reviews about every day. I’ve become a true Pixi fangirl over the years, if there was an ‘I love Pixi’ t-shirt, I’m not joking, I would seriously wear it.
Pixi didn’t disappoint with this year’s launches. First, they came out with a collaboration with Caroline Hirons creating the Double Cleanse which was one of the most coveted beauty products at the beginning of the year. Their extensive summer launch included an amazing new range of makeup and skincare which I am sure is on best selling lists everywhere already.
One of my favourites that I wanted to get as soon as I first saw it was the Rose Caviar Essence. If there was an award for the most delicious looking skincare product, this would definitely be one of the runner-ups. It looks so fresh and beautiful, good enough to eat. Okay, enough of the fangirling, here are the facts:
What it is: a beautiful blend of rose water and encapsulated flower oils suspended in a gel-like serum-essence. The encapsulation method is really smart because this way they can keep the ingredients fresh. This is a non-oily lightweight moisturising formula to soften, refine, tone, hydrate, moisturize the skin and reduce inflammation. It is not tested on animals and is paraben free.
Who it is for: all skin types, even the oily ones
The packaging: see-through tube, delicate looking very pretty, shows off the product perfectly, it is easy to handle and store.
How it worked: this lightweight, delicious looking gel is the perfect summer hydrator and brightener if you don’t like heavy creams. It melts and glides on the skin with a pleasant cooling effect and a delicate scent of rose while the tiny spheres burst on contact delivering those precious oils to the skin. You can use it morning and night (I did use it mostly in the mornings) after cleansing and toning, pressing it into the skin and if you prefer it, follow it with moisturiser. This beautifying gel is absolutely pleasurable to use and it does what it says on the tin. It makes the skin bright, bouncy and fresh looking. It works wonders on tired skin before makeup. This is a definite keeper and it has already a firm place in my morning routine.
Value for money: good price for something so luxurious! £26.00 for 30ml that lasts quite a long time because a little bit goes a long way.
