Pixi Glow Tonic Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share with you guys a review on the most famous toner ever, the Pixi Glow Tonic, so let’s get into it:

Overview:

  • Price: $29 for 250 ml (smaller size is $15 for 100 ml)
  • 5% glycolic acid
  • Alcohol free
  • Cruelty free

Promise:

The Pixi Glow Tonic is a highly concentrated, invigorating facial toner that deeply cleans pores by sweeping away excess oil and impurities. (From the pixi website)

So this toner is something that I really really love! It definitely took a couple of weeks of consistent use to see real results but I have noticed a big difference in my skin.

It’s already much brighter and smoother out, as well as more even in tone. I also feel like my pores are much smaller. This seriously unclogs pores and prevents blackheads from forming so I really love that. This toner also really helps hydrate my skin and get rid of any dry patches so I would still recommend it if you have dry skin. It would be good for all skin types I think, except if you have really sensitive skin.

The 5% glycolic acid is definitely not the most gentle on your skin so if you are new to using a toner and you know your skin is really sensitive then only use it a couple times a week at first to see how your skin reacts.

I purchased the $15.00 100 ml size of this to test out and I’m already almost done with it, I will definitely be repurchasing!

*no swatch because it’s just a watery clear liquid*

That’s it for this review, I hope you guys enjoyed it! I loved sharing my experience with this product. Have you tried the pixi glow tonic?

Mini Skincare Haul!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share a little skincare haul of some items that I have picked up or been gifted for my birthday last month so lets get into it:

SheaMoisture Daily Hydration Face Milk Cleanser

This looks like a super hydrating face wash and I am so excited to try it. I love all the shea moisture products that I have tried so I am sure this will be the same great quality. It has organic raw shea butter, coconut milk and acacia senegal so I think it will be a lovely cleanser for my dry skin!

SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Radiance Serum 

I can’t wait to try this serum because I think it will definitely make my skin glow! The ingredients are supposedly really good for brightening dull skin so I definitely want to try this out, let me know if you guys want a review on it!

Beauticell Revive Rosehip Oil

This is a very good quality, high end oil serum and I think it is supposed to be used as a serum and it has some really nice ingredients in it like sea buckthorn oil and vitamin E so I definitely want to try it out. I also feel like I could use this as an oil cleanser to take off my makeup so I will do some experimenting.

Spascriptions Metallic Mask Set

This set comes with three masks and they are all sparkly with different ingredients. I think this is so fun and I cannot wait to mask with these and see if they actually make a difference in my skin. The green mask is supposed to be nourishing, the white one is supposed to be calming and then the blue one is supposed to be pore-minimizing.

That’s it for my mini skincare haul! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I am excited to try these products out and review them. Let me know in the comments if you have bought any new skincare lately and what you have bought!

Pixi T-zone Peel Off Mask Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I am doing a skincare review of a product I’ve been testing out for a while.

Overview:

  • Cruelty free!
  • Price: $22
  • 1.25 fl. Oz of product

Promises:

  • Instantly detoxifies by drawing out impurities & removing excess oil
  • Helps firm & refine
  • Contains natural ingredients rich in antioxidants (From the Target website)

This peel off mask is nice, it does exfoliate my skin where I use it on my face. I do think it helped unclog my pores a little bit, but by no means does it do that much for my face, it doesn’t get rid of blackheads or anything drastic. Continue reading “Pixi T-zone Peel Off Mask Review”

Current Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I’m going to share my skincare with you, this routine has helped cure my dry patches and help me deal with my dry skin in the winter!

Step 1: Vapour beauty clarity cleansing oil

I always use this to take off my makeup, it is a good oil cleanser and it has been working for me. It is quite pricy so I am trying to find a comparable one from the drugstore!

Step 2: Juice Beauty Exfoliating Cleanser

This is a great skincare product, my skin feels gorgeous and soft after I use it. It is a gentle enough exfoliator, at least for my skin, to use everyday. So I do use it everyday as my face wash, and it is so moisturizing and really nice.

Step 3: The Body Shop hydrating toner Continue reading “Current Skincare Routine for Dry Skin”

February Beauty Favorites!

Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog. I haven’t written a post in a little while and I’m so happy to be back. Today is the day when we talk about beauty favorites from the last month, so let’s jump into it.

Face Products:

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair 

This concealer is something I’ve had for a long time but I was never able to make it work for me before this month. I apply just a little bit with my finger or a sponge underneath my eyes and on anywhere I want to spot conceal and it truly looks beautiful with sheer-medium coverage. Before I was using too much product and it kept going cakey and looked horrible under my eyes, but now I love this concealer!

Eye Products:

Smashbox Full Exposure mascara in Black

This mascara is so pretty on my lashes, it makes them look fake and so long. I love that this gives me a little bit of volume, black lashes, and makes them long. The brush is huge, so that is my only issue with it, but that does make sure that I get all my lashes coated. I love that this mascara keeps my lashes curled too!

Tartelette Matte eyeshadow palette

If you couldn’t tell, this was the month of discovering old things in my collection! I recently pulled this out and now I am obsessed with it. The shadows really work for me now and I enjoy them! My absolute favorite look is using the four purple toned shadows in the middle row, it is so pretty and compliments my brown eyes.

Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in Icing

This is a stunning eyeshadow, it is a jelly so I usually apply a glitter glue (my favorite is the nyx pigment primer) and then I just pat it on with my fingertips, it is so stunning and glittery, and the formula doesn’t crease. This has been my go-to for a quick and low maintenance glittery eye look.

Lip Products

Urban Decay cream finish lipstick in Violate

This purple-pink cream lipstick pairs gorgeously with that warm toned purply eye look I have been doing a ton of. It is so pretty and the formula is so moisturizing and comfortable. I love using this as cream blush also, it is really pretty and I can’t get enough of using it!

Buxom Full On Lip Cream in Patricia 

This is a gorgeous lip topper, it is pink and has shimmers that are white-gold and blue in it. Although that might sound tacky it is actually so pretty on its own, or over lipstick and you guys already know I love the Buxom gloss formula. It is a little bit cooling because it is a plumper but it makes your lips look really juicy and soft.

Those are my favorites for this month! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will see you all with a new one very soon. Let me know in the comments something you’ve been loving!

Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean

Hello lovlies! Welcome back to yet another fantastic blog! Once again if you noticed this was published blank a few dys ago, it was because i completely forgot to write up this blog. I had it drafted and never copied and pasted it before the publish date. Im sorry!

Now i got this Estee Lauder perfectly clean makeup remover when i first moved the Texas in the summer of 2018. I was fresh out of makeup remover and wanted to try out something new. While wandering around the outlet mall for job and makeup remover i found this. Its a travel size bottle, so i figured i would use this while my usual makeup remover was being shipped out to me.

Now on the Estee Lauder website, it claims that this product is a Triple-Action Cleanser/Toner/Makeup Remover. It promises to cleanse, tone and remove makeup.

Now i will go in order of what it promises.

Cleanser:

When you use this product, the pump will pump out a foam, similar to those foaming hand sanitizers. This made me a bit skeptical because it came out so light, i was unsure as to how well it would work. I was a bit disapointed when i used this to clean my face off and i didnt really feel cleansed. I didnt feel fresh or anything. Then again i wasnt surprised. The foam was so light. I will say i used this both in the morning before appying makeup and then at night after/ for removing makeup to see if perhaps using this product in the morning would change how i felt about it, and unfortunatley it didnt.

Toner:

For Toner i usually use Pixi or Witch Hazel (lavender or rose) which really work for me. Once again i was very disapointed when this product didnt tone my face whatsoever. So far it was two strikes out and i was begining to feel like i lucked out. On top of it not toning my skin, it also left it a bit oily feeling which i didnt like at all. Especially when the website said that it would actually take away any oily feeling.

Makeup remover:

As state above, the main reason i bought this product was to remove makeup, so i had my fingers crossed that at least it would do that. It seemed from the surface to remove my makeup. There was a bit of eyeliner still on my eye lids, but other than that it looked to be all gone. Just to make sure, i used the last of my makeup wipes to make sure everything was off and was shocked to see that there was still resedue of makeup on my skin. It didnt clean it all off, only the surface which isnt going to be good for your skin if you dont clean all that makeup off your skin!

So three strikes and it was out. I was so bummed that this didnt work. I would also like to add that there was definitley perfumes in this, and i did react with my sensitve skin a bit, so if any of you out there wanted to also give it a try and have sensitive skin do watch out please!

This product retails at $29 online, but i got it for like $15. Either way i do believe for me it was a waste of money.

Thats it for todays blog!
