Pixi Beauty Rose Infused Skintreats Collection Review
This review is for anyone coming over from a web search ;). Are you curious about the Pixi Beauty Rose Infused Skintreats range? Wondering whether you should pick up some products from the drugstore or your local Target? Pixi Beauty was kind enough to send me the whole Rose Infused Skintreats collection. (Thanks, Pixi!) So I’m here to tell you which products are worth a try and which products you should skip.
The Pixi Beauty Rose Infused Skintreats collection consists of the following products:
Pixi Beauty Skincare
One thing I really enjoy about Pixi Beauty is their affordable, no-frills approach to skincare. The Pixi Glow Tonic has achieved cult beauty status as an effective and affordable chemical Glycolic Acid exfoliant. As I keep up with Pixi’s newest releases, I’m excited to see them introducing new ingredients such as Retinol and Vitamin C to their range.
The line I’m reviewing today, the Pixi Beauty Rose Infused Skintreats, focuses on hydration. It is aimed at dry, normal/balanced, and sensitive skin types. The line is designed to cover all your skincare needs from start to finish. I appreciate how Pixi has labeled each product according to its corresponding step in your skincare routine. I do want to reveal early on that I like to follow a more minimal skincare routine. My daily routine does not involve 9 separate products. So, spoiler alert, a lot of these items were misses for me. Not so much in terms of quality, but I just didn’t feel like they made a noticeable difference in my skin. Overall, I prefer simplifying my steps and focusing on the most effective products for my particular skin concerns.
Without further ado, here’s my review of the Pixi Beauty Rose Infused Skintreats line:
So, I’ll make this brief. I have stopped using makeup wipes and have not repurchased any new ones in a while. I usually keep some around to help me photograph makeup swatches in bulk. I might bring some with me when I need to travel very lightly. Otherwise, I remove my makeup using either a cleansing balm, cleansing oil or micellar water.
The Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloths are perfectly okay makeup wipes. The formula is gentle and isn’t heavily fragranced. You get 40 cloths for $10 (I got the smaller travel size) which seems like a good value. However, I would advocate for a cleansing balm or oil which you can apply with your hands to avoid waste and tugging around your eyes.
Final verdict: Skip
Farnsworth: Good news, everyone! Here’s one product I ended up loving. The Rose Cream Cleanser is a soothing gentle cleanser formulated with rose flower oil, aloe, chamomile, and avocado oil. I adored this cleanser and think it’s one of the best I’ve used in a while. I went through my first oneand have purchased a new one for myself. I love the formula and texture. The cleanser is like the best of both worlds, a cross between a milk and gel cleanser. It has the gentleness of a milky cleanser but the texture is thicker, and it’s as effective at cleansing and removing residual makeup as a gel. After using this product, I find no residual makeup or oil, yet my skin does not feel tight, dry or stripped. That’s a tricky balance that I feel not many
Final verdict: Recommended! Have already repurchased.
Pixi’s Glow Tonic is incredibly popular so I must compare the two straight away. They are totally different products with different purposes. Glow Tonic is a chemical exfoliant meant to treat tone and texture. The Pixi Rose Tonic, on the other hand, is a nourishing toner that, according to Pixi, is meant to “tone, balance pH, minimize redness, calm skin, rehydrate, replenish, and refresh.” And I agree with those statements, I find it to be soothing, gentle, and hydrating. However, redness and dryness are not skin concerns of mine, so I found that I was rarely reaching for this toner. That is until I found that it’s a wonderful carrier for powdered Vitamin C. I use the Neogen Real Vita C Powder which needs to be mixed into a liquid carrier and the Rose Tonic is a great fit for that.
Final Verdict: Nice product. It’s not a must-have for me as it’s a better fit for those with redness and dry skin.
I personally don’t incorporate many serums into my skincare routine. And when I do, I focus on improving my skin’s tone and texture. In those cases when I want to boost hydration, I’ll use hyaluronic acid. The Pixi Rose Caviar Essence is a thin, lightweight gel-like serum which absorbs very quickly into the skin. Oily skin types struggling with dehydration might really like this. I just found that this particular product didn’t do much for me.
Final verdict: Skip.
Pixi Beauty Rose Flash Balm, $24
The Pixi Rose Flash Balm is “a 3-in-1, oil-free, quick-absorbing formula that instantly moisturizes and brightens and is great as a revitalizing mask as well as a primer to prep skin for perfect makeup application.” So this product was a bit confusing to me. Is it a primer, a serum, a mask, a moisturizer? I guess it can be whatever you wish depending on your needs. I simply found this product redundant and not better than any primer, serum, mask or moisturizer already in my collection.
Final verdict: Skip.
Official description: “This ultra-rich cream is infused with Ceramides and Rose Oil to deeply hydrate the skin for a healthier, more supple appearance and feel. Antioxidant-rich botanicals help to improve skin’s elasticity while protecting against environmental aggressors.”
The Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream pleasantly surprised me. This moisturizer reminds me a lot of the Embryolisse
Final Verdict: It’s a solid moisturizer. For my skin type, I prefer a thinner texture but I would recommend the Rose Ceramide Cream to those with dry skin.
The Pixi Rose Oil Blend includes sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed, and rose geranium oils. It’s a nice oil that helps boost moisture and glow. I liked it well enough, but I still prefer my regular Fresh Seaberry Oil as it’s more lightweight and absorbs better.
Final verdict: It’s like a solid B grade but there are better oils out there.
I really enjoy the Pixi Rose Makeup Fixing Mist. The nozzle on this is wonderful and sprays a fine mist. No chunky water droplets here! It’s a good product for those looking to achieve a natural, dewy look. The formula is soothing and refreshing, but I did not find that it drastically improved the wear time of my makeup. I will be using this more in the winter, but right now I’m using my Urban Decay All Nighter.
Final Verdict: Would recommend.
From Pixi’s website: “Packed with 7 flower oils, essential fatty acids and antioxidants, this dual-phase elixir leaves skin with a natural glow. It moisturizes the skin, improves elasticity and provides free radical protection.”
Although it’s labeled as a setting spray, I found the Rose Makeup Fixing Mist to be pretty moisturizing. Not only that, considering this is such a small range, I found the two mists redundant. This one feels a bit too oily for my skin type and I found it to be more heavily fragranced than the rest of the collection.
Final verdict: Skip.
I love rose-scented products so I enjoyed the fragrances in this collection. Rose-scented beauty products are known for smelling
Still, I ended up loving the Rose Tonic and Rose Cream Cleanser. I’d recommend those to any skin type.
