That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 8.7.17
Question of the Week: Stop! What is the LAST THING you used on your face?
Answer: The last items I used were before I went to bed last night; this fabulous Glow trio from Pixi Beauty.
I have to admit, 6 months ago I thought of Pixi as a makeup company. But I’ve been recently introduced to their skincare and I flippin’ love it! Especially this line. All three Glow products feature glycolic acid in different strengths to provide gentle, non-gritty exfoliation.
Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser ($18) is creamy and soothing, adding hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and avocado oil to moisturize. Pixi Glow Peel Pads ($22 for 60 pads) are a portable version of the cult classic Glow Tonic. I’m a fool for a good peel, but they can be harsh (and I can be obsessive). So these are PERFECT; gentle yet strong enough to send any blemishes peeking up to the curb. They also smell good, thanks to rose water. Both of these products feature 5% glycolic acid.
Taking it up a notch with 10% glycolic acid is Pixi Overnight Glow Serum ($24). This furthers the exfoliation while I sleep, plus combats irritation with cucumber.
All three? Totally my cup of tea!
