Hola beauties! I wanted to share some more Pixi Beauty reviews with you guys. Pixi sent me a giant box of face masks last month that I’ve been testing ever since. In today’s post I wanted to share my thoughts on all of them, plus the Rose Flash Balm that I received in my Rose Skintreats Haul back in January.
Honestly the box that they sent the products in is a little obnoxious. I love the Rose Skintreats travel bag because it’s so functional, I’ve hung it in my bathroom as an easy way to store my Pixi & Fourth Ray Beauty skincare. But this box? I’m sorry to say it but it’s a waste. What’s worse is that this giant box came inside another big box! Good Grief. Anyways, let’s talk about the products!
Which Pixi Mask is for You?
This post will talk about the Pixi Glow Mud Mask, T Zone Mask, DetoxifEYE Gel Eye Masks, Rose Flash Balm, and lastly Peel & Polish. Peel & Polish is more of a treatment and less of a mask but I threw it in there anyways! I’ve included a little info on how Pixi says these masks should work. Please keep in mind that these products were gifted to me in PR but that doesn’t change the way that I feel about them and I will always be 100% honest in my reviews. Let’s get into the products!
This radiance revealing enzyme peel resurfaces for smoother softer skin and a healthy looking glow. — Pixi Beauty
How It Works: Natural fruit enzymes loosen dead skins cells, lactic acid gently exfoliates, cellulose peels & sugar extracts polishes, lifting away dullness revealing brighter skin.
I enjoyed using Peel & Polish. It was my favourite thing in the entire PR box! I recently ran out of my HG exfoliator Kate Somerville Exfolikate and it’s a little expensive for me to repurchase right now. I was just thinking that I needed a new exfoliator, talk about good timing!
The granules in this peel are a little harsher than I was expecting. You can rub Peel & Polish into your skin for thorough exfoliation but I just let the enzymes do their thing for two minutes as directed and then rinse it off. I was worried about the granules doing more damage to my skin than helping it as they do feel quite large. My skin feels smooth & fresh when I use it. I’ll probably go back to Exfolikate but I’ll enjoy Peel & Polish while it lasts.
A purifying, glow-revealing clay mask to purify & balance skin – it’s our signature 15-minute facial! — Pixi Beauty
How It Works: The mineral-rich treatment absorbs oil, draws out impurities. Kaolin & sea salt purify while ginseng & aloe vera balance
The Glow Mud Mask is a deep cleaning purifying face mask. Mud masks are supposed to help fight breakouts by absorbing oil & impurities from deep in the skin.
I haven’t been dealing with a crazy amount of acne lately thankfully so I don’t know how well it reduces breakouts but it did leave my face super soft after washing off. This mask also didn’t leave my skin feel tight and uncomfortable while it was dry which was a nice feature. If you like mud masks I recommend this one, you can pick up a mini for $6USD or a full size for $22.
Detoxifying peel-off mask draws out impurities and lifts away oil to reveal immediate results. — Pixi Beauty
How It Works: It contains a unique green super food blend that includes avocado, cucumber, aloe, green tea and bamboo extract to help firm & refine. Great for congested, dull and tired skin.
I’m sorry that my photos are a little dull here. I don’t know why but I had a really hard time photographing the packaging. The light wanted to reflect off the plastic and then the shiny lettering kept causing glare. A bloggers nightmare!
Anyways, the T Zone mask is interesting. It’s a silvery green and once it dries you can peel it off to unclog your pores. Or at least that’s the idea, it reminded me of Biore pore strips only they didn’t work as well. I had a hard time peeling off the mask and most of the time I resorted to using a face cloth to remove it.
I didn’t see any noticeable effects from incorporating this mask in my routine once a week. Maybe I need to use it more often, but I think I’ll just use pore strips for my nose.
Instantly reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles while moisturizing and soothing your skin with Pixi’s DetoxifEYE hydrogel eye patches. — Pixi Beauty
How It Works: Hyaluronic acid and caffeine smooths and depuffs, aiding in reducing dark circles.
These Pixi hydrogel patches are the most slippery eye gel masks I’ve ever used. I loved the Stella & Grace gel masks that came in the 2017 Winter Fabfitfun box, and frankly I prefer those to these DetoxifEYE masks. The Pixi DetoxifEYE eye patches slip right off my face, I literally need to lie down or else I’m continuously propping them back up.
Aside from that they worked well for cooling & soothing my under eye area in the mornings and I did notice an increase in smoothness and hydration after using them. You get a ton of eye patches in this tub, 30 pairs to be exact. That’s a lot of masking!
These eye patches are soaked in a serum of hyaluronic acid to hydrate and caffeine to brighten the under eye area. I didn’t notice a ton of brightening but I’ve also been sleeping more lately so I haven’t needed to worry about it.
How It Works: Serum concentrate of glycolic acid brightens and herbal extracts help to improve and maintain skin health, promoting more luminous skin.
At first I thought these masks were super expensive at $10USD, but then I realized that that was for a box of three. $3.33 per mask isn’t all that bad, but since these aren’t sold in a shoppers drug mart near me I’ll pass for now.
I wasn’t surprised that I didn’t notice any change in my skin after using them. I rarely feel like sheet masks do anything for me other than hydrate so I don’t go out of my way to buy them. This one also contains Witch Hazel which is known to dry the skin so I don’t think these Glow masks are the ones for me. My skin is too dry already!
Pixi Rose Flash Balm
This 3-in-1, oil-free, quick absorbing formula instantly moisturizes and brightens and is great as a revitalizing mask as well as a primer to prep skin for perfect makeup application. — Pixi Beauty
How It Works: Rose Water balances PH, Rose Extract Minimizes redness & soothes, and Olive Leaf Extract is a smoothing super food.
Okay, so I completely disagree that Rose Flash Balm should or can be used in three different ways. I tried out all three ways; moisturizer, mask and primer. The only way that worked for me was as a mask. The product doesn’t spread easily enough on my skin to be worn as a primer, and it didn’t do much for my makeup. This isn’t a formula that I felt was well suited to being a moisturizer. I prefer creamier & more emollient formulas such as the Rose Ceramide Cream. As a mask it did leave my skin feeling soft, but I also had a feeling of wanting to wash it off. I wouldn’t want to leave it on my skin all day!
So I guess it’s kind of a strange product, I liked it as a mask and wouldn’t wear it any other way. I also didn’t like it enough to repurchase. I wish I had enjoyed the Pixi Rose Flash Balm more!
Have you tried of these Pixi Beauty Face Masks?
I enjoyed the Pixi Peel & Polish, DetoxifEYE Gel Masks and the Glow Mud Mask. Those are the three that I would most recommend, and I would say skip on the others. If you’re interested in the T Zone mask I honestly think you can just buy some nose pore strips and get better results, and there are tons of brightening & hydrating masks on the market so I don’t think the ones from Pixi are particularly special. These are just my thoughts and opinions though, so if you love these remember that we all have different skin and experiences with products! Thanks so much for reading x
