I’ve been a massive fan of Pixi by Petra products for a few years now. Pixi was launched back in 1999 at their flagship shop in Soho, London and thanks to their cult make-up and skin care products have become a big name within the beauty industry. Each product is designed to give you a naturally radiant “just had a good night sleep” look.
I love that founder Petra Strand says that Pixi products are all about multitasking, flaw-fixing and youth-enhancing for women with no time to spare. As a busy mum of four (Yes, 4!), she knows that ‘us mums’ need all the help we can get when it comes to fast beauty fixers.
I was super excited to receive some of Pixi’s most iconic and renowned products recently. Let me tell you all about them and why they’re all on my beauty heroes list.
This is where Pixi started their skin care journey. The now iconic Glow Tonic is a ‘toner like no other’, it instantly refreshes, brightens, tones and conditions your skin after cleansing. It’s enriched with 5% glycolic acid, which gently exfoliates and dissolves dead cells to reveal the healthy, glowing skin that lies beneath. Aloe then soothes and hydrates your skin to gradually reduce signs of sun damage, fine lines, scarring and other imperfections. This little bottle of beauty elixir really does it all and is suitable for all skin types. I’m a little obsessed! Can you tell?
If you’re after a skin-brightening primer that creates a flawless base for make up, then look no further! This tube of pearly cream unifies your skin tone and gives your complexion a gorgeous ‘lit-from-within’ finish. With this product Petra wanted to create a product that replicated the look and feel of the skin she had in her 20s and this, as she says “is as close as it gets”.
This is another beauty hero that’s suitable for all skin types. It can be worn alone on ‘good skin’ days, or underneath your favourite tinted moisturiser or foundation for a gorgeously dewy, airbrushed finish.
This is a youth-boosting serum that packs a punch and is again suitable for all skin types. It’s infused with a powerful complex of oils to enhance your skin’s elasticity and leave it glowing with youthful health. The cocktail of sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed and rose geranium oils also smells amazing!! Which makes this oil an absolute joy to apply.
It’s a gorgeous treatment ideal for anyone with dehydrated, dulled or sagging skin. Pass me the bottle!
I’m not normally a fan of plumping lip products but this one, well this one I like. It has a glossy formula with soothing aloe, conditioning jojoba oil and calming chamomile. The fresh minty flavour leaves your lips tingling (in a good way) and looking smooth and full. I know that nothing is going to give me Angelina lips but I love the dramatic affect I get from this conditioning plumper. I have the clear ‘Petal Ice’ shade but it’s also available in pink ‘Sheer Rose’ and nude ‘Honey Sheen’ if you prefer some colour.
Endless Silky Eye Pen £12
Now I know eyeliners! I literally wear eyeliner every day (due to my non-existent eyelashes) and am constantly on the look out for a new favourite, so when I say this is the ultimate long-wearing liner, you know it’s good. This Silky Eye Pen is a creamy, indelible gel-crayon that glides on easily and ‘sets’ in seconds. Basically, it’s the perfect black eyeliner. There’s nothing more to say!
