Here’s a complete review of a product that I recently tried and loved, and just had to share with all of you!
Pixi is a skincare company that grew quickly in popularity due to the mass advocacy it achieved from bloggers and vloggers alike, especially in the UK. Early this year the brand collaborated with popular YouTuber and skincare Guru, Caroline Hirons to create this amazing 2 in 1 evening cleanser that consits of a solid cleansing oil on one side and a cleansing cream on the other. It’s one of those products that you instantly fall in love with after your very first use! Let me break it down for you.
The Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse balm is rooted in Caroline Hiron’s idea that a woman needs to cleanse her skin twice for it to be fully rid of any makeup or grub from the day. As such the product comes with a solid cleansing oil that easily breaks down and removes dirt, makeup and sunscreen, and a cleansing balm that cleanses and conditions to prep skin for the next steps in your regime. The product is a pot of sheer goodness containing Vitamin E, Camellia Oil, Evening Primrose oil, Avocado oil, Safflower and Olive oil among others.
The solid cleansing oil has a buttery texture and effortlessly glides onto dry skin. It removed every bit of makeup with minimal to no effort on my part. The best part of the cleansing oil is that it melts away when it comes in contact with water, and leaves your skin perfectly clean without any hint of greasiness. It even removes the toughest of mascara build up while being completely gentle on your lashes. The cleansing cream, which follows the oil, is unscented and creamy, and a pea-sized amount goes a long way! Once I washed my face after this step my skin felt smooth and hydrated and I honestly didn’t even feel the need to reach out for my moisturizer immediately after, like I normally would.
Ever since I started using this product I’ve swapped my makeup remover and cleanser for it. The formulation does a thorough job of gently removing makeup, especially around the eyes and it definitely works faster than an average makeup remover as well. I would definitely repurchase the product and could not recommend it enough! If you’re in Canada, most Pixi products are available at Shoppers Beauty Boutique and you can also get it shipped through websites with international delivery, as the product is largely sold in Europe and UK.
