A clever and well-conceived combination of easy-to-use products, affordable prices and pretty packaging makes Pixi a winner you'll want to check out
In case you haven't gotten the memo, cult UK skincare and makeup brand Pixi has made its way to our shores. Created by Swedish-born makeup artist Petra Strands nearly 20 years ago, the brand is know for its cult product the Glow Tonic — an exfoliating toner — as well as its relaxed approach to better skin. And who can resist the gorgeous, green packaging with pink accents. The brand started with a flagship boutique in Soho, London and has since moved on to be retailed worldwide and online in stores like Cult Beauty.
The buzz words around Pixi are innovative formulations that Strands has infused with botanicals and ingredients. Pixi is all about multi-tasking, youth-enhancing products that allows you to perfect your skin in a matter of minutes. Says Strands, "As a makeup artist my aim is to achieve flawless, lustrous makeup to bring out the best in you. In product development, skin-loving ingredients and youth-enhancing textures is what I do." Launching in Sephora's physical stores as of now, a little birdie told us that the Glow Tonic already sold out over the past weekend— thanks to its much talked about efficacy and perfect price point. Currently Sephora is stocking 22 different Skintreats products, although you can buy two makeup products — the Natural Brow Duoand the Endless Silky Eye Pen online. While we eagerly await more makeup products, here's a lowdown of three, cool skincare products we're dying to try.
1. Glow Tonic, from $9 for a mini bottle An exfoliating toner that contains 5 percent glycolic, aloe vera and ginseng, this gently exfoliates for beautiful, glowing skin without irritating the complexion. We've only used it once thus far, but can't wait to see the results after a few days.
2. Rose Oil Blend Nourishing Face Oil, $39 A botanical blend that contains a complex of oils including sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed and rose geranium. This improves skin's elasticity and glow at an unbeatable price point.
3. Overnight Glow Serum, $39 Wake up a true blue sleeping beauty with this sleeping serum, that gently exfoliates skin as you snooze, to reveal a renewed and fresh face each morning.
