Hello everyone! I’ve been on a beauty no-buy since January first, which means I’m in full shop my stash mode. My no-buy was made much easier when I received a very generous PR package from Pixi by Petra last month containing their entire Rose Infused Skintreats line. I went from expecting to have next to nothing to talk about on my blog to having eight products to share with you!
I asked you guys in my PR Haul blog post if you were interested in reading my reviews of Pixi’s Rose Skintreats line. Overall the response was “Yes!” so I wanted to get the ball rolling with one of my favourite products in the Rose Skintreats line: the Rose Cream Cleanser. It’s obvious that I love this cleanser so much that I featured it and the Rose Ceramide Cream in my January Favourites this year! Let me tell you why…
Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser Review
The Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser retails for $18USD and contains 135ml ($4.57oz) of product. It contains aloe vera and camomile to soothe, rose & avocado to condition and rich mineral mud to nourish & cleanse the skin. It’s also considered safe for sensitive skin.
Pixi by Petra is considered a drugstore beauty brand and can be found in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart. It’s strange to me that Pixi is considered “drugstore” instead of mid-range. I was talking with Nova about this and we concluded that Pixi would probably be better suited to Sephora given the price point. $18 for a cleanser sounds expensive at the drugstore but if it were on a shelf at Sephora $18 would be a bargain!
The Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser comes in a large squeeze bottle/tube. It’s a good size for a cleanser, I feel like it’s going to last me a while. My previous holy grail moisturizer was the Fresh Soy Cleanser but I couldn’t justify buying it full sized because it was so expensive. It’s almost strange to me having a full sized cleanser on my shelf now.
I love that Pixi always has their “pixi green” colour (as I call it) somewhere on their packaging!
Now onto what you guys really care about: How the product worked! For those of you who don’t know me, hello. I’m Cleia and I have the driest skin on earth. That may be an exaggeration but with how cold this winter has been I’m starting to believe it. In this weather my skin felt tight & dry after cleansing with the Fresh Soy Cleanser even though it’s supposed to be gentle on the skin. I started finding dry texture on my cheeks and around my nose after using it. The CeraVe Hydrating cleanser even empasized my dryness.
I was worried that the rose clay in the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser would make my skin extra dry. I see clay in a lot of deep cleaning face products so it was my only basis for comparison. It turned out that my apprehension was unnecessary.
This is a cream cleanser so it doesn’t foam up or lather at all. I think that all of the soothing ingredients packed into this cleanser really do nourish your skin. I’ve been using it for weeks now and I never feel or see dry patches on my face after cleansing! Yay!
It’s not perfect. It doesn’t always do a great job of removing my eye makeup. I look like a raccoon if I don’t use a makeup remover! I’ve also been making sure to swab my face with toner & a cotton ball afterwards to remove anything that the rose cream cleanser may have missed. The rose tonic from the same line has been doing a good job of this.
Have you tried Pixi’s Rose Skintreats Line?
Overall the Rose Cream Cleanser has been a Godsend for my dry skin. Despite our current dry climate my face is no longer scaly or riddled with dry patches. I’m amazed that my skin looks so good after several weeks of the polar vortex!
If you have dry skin I do recommend this cleanser. I will likely switch back to the Fresh Soy Cleanser in the Summer when my skin is a little oiler but for the next few months I’ll be using Pixi’s cleanser exclusively.
I hope you guys enjoyed this review! If you like reading about skincare please check out my latest Fourth Ray Beauty Face Milk Review, I’ve really enjoyed trying them out as well this year. Next week I’ll be reviewing the Rose Ceramide Cream from Pixi. Talk soon! x
