Pixi Skintreats Review - Cleansers - Glow Mud Cleanser and Nourishing Cleansing Balm

This post is really exciting for me, as it's part one of my review series for the huge order I made with Pixi. It seemed only appropriate to start with the cleansers, as cleansing products are my favourite things to try out. I went online to make my purchase and came away with more than expected (as you do). I've been testing these cleansers for a couple of weeks and I'm ready to share the greatness with you. I hope these reviews are helpful. 




I purchased the Nourishing Cleansing Balm and the Glow Mud Cleanser.



The packaging is very simple and sturdy. It is a bit big for travel though. 
Price - £18 for 135ml
Texture - Creamy, soft cleanser
Finish - Refreshed, bright, glowing skin

What they say
This active yet gentle cleanser with 5% glycolic acid exfoliates to reveal a glowing, healthier looking skin tone

Key ingredients
 Glycolic Acid - Exfoliates and resurfaces the skin, leaving it smoother and softer
Avocado Oil - Nourishes and moisturises
Mud - Deep cleans and detoxifies
Hyaluronic Acid - Plumps the skin with hydration

What is it
This is a beautiful cleanser that deep cleans, exfoliates and brightens the complexion. It leaves the skin glowing and perfected without being harsh or stripping. It has lovely fresh/citrus scent which is so invigorating. Suitable for all skin types, except very sensitive. Especially great for oily,combination,congested skins. 






How I use it
I take a 10p size amount for my whole face and neck, avoiding the eyes. I apply it to bare, dry skin and massage it through. I do tend to add a little water to loosen up the product, then remove with a hot flannel.This is not suitable for removing makeup. You can use this AM or PM, but I prefer morning as it is really refreshing and wakes me up. After using this, my skin looks lifted, glowing and perky, as if I've had lots and sleep. It really deep cleans and removes everyday dirt, grime and sebum. 

Pros
- Mid Priced
- Good amount of product
- Instant results
- Great for all skin types
- Uplifting scent
- Clarifies and removes impurities

Cons
- Not great for very sensitive skins



The balm comes in a nice chunky plastic pot, but is not very heavy. Nice and sturdy, good for travel if you have space for a pot.
Price - £18 for 90ml
Texture - Soft, balm to oil
Finish - Smooth, nourished, skin

What they say
Rich and luxuriously textured, this balm to oil cleanser melts away makeup and impurities for clear glowing skin. 

Key ingredients
Vitamin E - Reduces skin damage, fights free radicals and moisturises
Sweet Almond Oil - Dissolves impurities
-Shea Butter - Protects and moisturises 

What is it
This is a classic cleansing balm, that nourishes the skin whilst effectively cleansing. It has a soft rose/ almond scent, which is calming and relaxing. Suitable for all skin types. 







(oily stage)

How I use it
 I use a 10p sized blob and massage it all over the face, neck and eyes. It will remove makeup, but I keep it for skin cleansing. You can use it AM or PM, but I keep it for PM. It starts off a bit gritty/lumpy but then melts into a nice oil that cleans the skin, leaving it soft, nourished and glowing. 

Pros
- Mid Priced
- Cleanses quickly and thoroughly
- Nourishes and hydrates the skin
- Non offensive scent
- Beautiful texture

Cons
- None

Summary
I am so glad that I tried these cleansers. I'll be honest, I'm more impressed by the Glow Mud Cleanser as it had more oomph and is different to products I own. I still really like the Nourishing Cleansing Balm, I just wasn't blown away. Both are great cleansers to have in your stash for different occasions. I highly recommend giving them a go, you won't be disappointed. Thank you for reading!

  1. I just tried the balm today and really enjoyed how it melted. Not as nice as my Emma Hardie but a good one to alternate with.

    1. So sorry for the late reply, too caught up with Christmas haha. I don't think anything can beat Emma Hardie lol! You're right though, it does melt nicely and is great to have in your collection to alternate with.

    2. That's ok, I hope you had a nice Christmas.

      I want Emma to do more balm cleansers with different smells/properties that feel just as nice.
