If there’s one thing I’m a sucker for – it’s a pretty packaging, and Pixi cosmetics certainly put a big fat tick in that box.
Every blogger and their cat has been going craycray for the Pixi Glow Tonic lately, which I must admit, I’m keen to get my paws on. But instead I’ve got dibs on the Pixi Skin Tint courtesy of The Hut.
The Pixi H2O Skintint Tinted Face Gel is a super lightweight formula, which delivers a light coverage, which can be easily built on. Applied with fingers it is as easy as popping on a tinted moisturiser, although the slick feeling after the first rub takes a little to get used to. Let me explain: At first it’s like any other foundation/tinted moisturiser, but then it kind of slips under your finger tips, then continues to blend in. It’s a bit odd, but I guess that’s what comes with being such a light weight gel foundation. Other gel based foundations I’ve tried have been a bit sticky, but usually fuller coverage.
I’ve used this daily for around a week now, and I’ve found the formula has actually really helped to soothe the redness around my hormonal spots which I’ve been suffering from for a bloody fortnight or so. They’ve certainly been persistent this time around. But as Pixi H2O skin tint includes soothing skin friendly ingredients such as chamomile, lavender and green tea, it’s no wonder I’ve seen improvements. The uninspiring shade name of ‘1’ is great for the paler complexions amongst us, and it’s nice to find what is essential a tinted moisturiser without the orange undertones.
If this was twelve months ago mind, I would not feel confident enough with such a lightweight coverage on my spotty little face. I always used to opt for a heavy layer of foundation followed by a powder of some kind. As Spring is just around the corner I’m keen to get my skin back on track for sweaty summer days, so this is great preparation for that. Using the Pixi Skin Tint with concealer in problem areas makes my face feel kinda free, and I kinda like it.
