The Pixi Beauty Glow Collection has all you could need for a glowing, radiant skincare routine. They’ve kindly sent me the collection and I’ve been putting it to the test for the last few weeks.
Before we get into the gorgeous products, you may have noticed there’s been a name change. After over 4 years of Beauty By The Bunny, I decided it was time for a little change. Whilst there is still going to be lots of beauty content, I also wanted the freedom to blog about interiors, food, travel … anything that takes my fancy. Therefore, it felt like the right time to change the name.
Anyway, back to the Pixi Beauty Glow Collection. There are 5 lovely products, all designed to help you get a glowing complexion. Some of the products are old favourites with me, but there have been a couple that I hadn’t tried before. I’m obsessed with glow – from my skincare to my makeup, so this collection was made for me.
All good skincare routines start with a good old cleanse and this one is no different. The Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel (£18.00) is a hydrating cleansing gel that I’ve really enjoyed using.
It removes dirt and impurities but doesn’t strip the skin of any moisture, so you don’t get that dry, tight feeling. Instead, it leaves you with a refined and brighter complexion and skin that feels energised and smooth. The cleanser contains Moisclean, which is a blend of glycolic acid, ginseng, horse chestnut extract and aloe. The ginseng helps to energise the skin and improve circulation, the aloe soothes and hydrates, whilst the glycolic aid exfoliates.
I’ve raved about Glow Tonic (from £10.00) many times and with good reason – it works!
It’s an exfoliating facial glow tonic that tones, firms and tightens the skin. I’ve been using this for years and I swear by it. It works to remove dead skin cells, leaving you with healthier looking skin. With 5% glycolic acid, it gently exfoliates so your complexion is more radiant, and like the cleanser it contains ginseng and aloe. Your skin feels energised, pores appear refined and it also gently accelerates cell renewal. I always notice a nice glow to my skin when I use this and it’s alcohol free and suitable for all skin types.
I am something of a serum junkie and have a ridiculous collection, and I’ve really enjoyed trying this Glow Tonic Serum (£26.00) out.
The serum is nice and lightweight, which I enjoy in a serum … I’m not a fan of serums that feel heavy at all. It works to gently exfoliate, nourish and hydrate the skin. Your skin is left looking radiant and feeling smooth, balanced and refined. As with the cleanser, glycolic acid exfoliates, the aloe soothes and the ginseng energises. I’ve been using it twice a day after cleansing for a few weeks, and I’m definitely a fan.
Next up in the Pixi Beauty Glow Collection routine is the pHenomenal Gel (£24.00) which I’d been wanting to try for a while.
It’s a balancing and pH neutralising moisture gel that claims to balance and stabilise the skin’s natural pH levels. Now I don’t have a stash of pH testing strips in my house so I can’t make any judgement on whether it has an effect on the pH level. However, I have notice that my skin does feel more balanced with the dry areas feeling more hydrated and the oiler parts feeling less … oily. There’s horse chestnut to hydrate and smooth, aloe to calm and citric acid to balance and brighten the skin. Regardless of what my pH is, the gel feels soothing, hydrating and I am noticing some improvement.
Last but not least, we have On-The-Glow (£18.00). I didn’t think that I was going to like this, and whilst I probably wouldn’t run out to buy it, it is handy if you’re out and about a lot.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever tried a solid moisturiser stick before and I was worried that it would possibly be a bit greasy (it isn’t), but I have been pleasantly surprised by this. It’s one of those products that you can just chuck in your bag on a morning for when it’s needed throughout the day. The formula contains vitamin D2, which is a powerful antioxidant, ginseng to energise and glycolic acid to gently moisturise and renew the skin. You can use this on your face, your lips (I love it on the lips), your body and even your hair apparently though I can’t say I’ve tried that.
