After buying this cleanser, it became such a staple, that I forgot to write a review. Now, that's saying something! After hearing so much hype, I had to give it a go for myself. Well it's been a month or so, and it's time to share my thoughts with you! Hope you enjoy!



Cleanse and Polish comes in a slim, tall bottle. I think it is quite simple but pretty. It dispenses with a pump. Not bad for travel if you have the space. 
Price - £14 for 100ml
Texture - Smooth, creamy cleanser
Finish - Soft, radiant, cleansed skin

What they say
 Rich and creamy, this hot cloth cleanser quickly removes daily grime and make up (even stubborn mascara) leaving all skin types clean, soft and radiant. With purifying eucalyptus essential oil, toning rosemary plus soothing chamomile and cocoa butter. 
Try it… over 100 awards say you’ll love it.

Key ingredients
Rosemary - Has astringent properties and tones the skin
Cocoa Butter - High in fatty acids which hydrate
Eucalyptus Essential Oil - Purifies and has anti-bacterial properties

What is it
This is a gorgeous hot cloth cleanser that cleanses, softens and nourishes the skin. It's creamy texture massages nicely into the skin. It has a minty scent (eucalyptus). Suitable for all skin types. 







How I use it
I spread 1-2 pumps across my face and neck. It evenly spreads across the skin and gently cleanses, leaving the skin smooth, glowing and clear. You can use this AM/PM and as a makeup remover/skin cleanser. I prefer it as a 'skin cleanser' I think its far too nice to remove makeup. It's becoming a go to for the morning cleanse, because it's light enough but still removes all that morning sweat. Nice. 
The scent is quite uplifting and isn't over-powering. I remove it with a nice hot flannel, you can use the Liz Earle muslin cloth, but nothing beats a simple flannel. The skin feels and looks amazing after every cleanse. 

Pros
- Affordable
- Gorgeous texture
- Light, invigorating scent
- Gentle
- Suitable for all skin types
- Good amount of product
- Cleanses and nourishes
 - Great ingredients


Cons
- None

Summary
I am so glad that I enjoy this cleanser. After the build up of wanting to love it, I actually do! I see why it's the most popular cleanser in the UK, and probably the world. It's a basic, but super effective cleanser that could work for anyone. I think it's definitely worth trying if you haven't already or have been curios for a long time. Thank you for reading!

Welcome to the third instalment of the Pixi Skintreats reviews. Today's post is all about the serums. I've been trailing them for a long time now and without giving too much away ... ( they're frigging amazing).  I hope you enjoy guys!



Overnight Glow Serum and the Hydrating Milky Serum.
(Sorry for the bad reflection, it's from the writing on the bottles)



It comes in a hand-szie glass bottle, with a pipette. Ok for travel.
Price - £26 for 30ml
Texture  - Thick gel
Finish - Radiant, even, bright skin

What they say
A concentrated exfoliating gel that helps to reveal a more even & radiant skintone overnight.

Key ingredients
10% Glycolic Acid - Exfoliates and reduces appearance of fine lines
Aloe Vera - Calms and soothes
Vitamin A,C & E - Nourishes

What is it
This is fresh skin in a bottle. By far one of the products in the range. It exfoliates the skin while you sleep, leaving your complexion bright, perky and fresh in the morning.The gel is thick at first, but absorbs nicely. It has a slight 'acid toner' scent basically glycolic. Suitable for all skin types except sensitive. 





How I use it
After spritz toning, I apply 1-2 drops and apply it to my face and neck. The gel absorbs well, but still leaves a moisturising 'film'. This is purely a PM product. Follow up with a simple moisturiser. In the morning my skin is radiant, glowing, clear and completely smooth. It literally is like waking to new skin. My skin tone is completely even. It sloughs away all the dead skin and reveals fresher skin. Once you've done your morning cleanse, you can see the results even more. After each use I am still amazed.

Pros
- Mid priced
- Results after first use
- Exfoliates without using harsh scrubs
- Nice texture
- Doesn't strip or dry out skin
- Mild scent

Cons
- Not suitable for sensitive skin 
- The texture doesn't work well with the pipette. It would work a lot better with a pump, or something else. 
(Pixi if you read this, change the packaging please!)



The serum comes in the same hand-sized bottle. Ok for travel.
Price - £26 for 30ml
Texture - Thick- milky-gel
Finish - Soft, nourished, glowing skin

What they say
A revitalizing boost for skin that intensely hydrates while it protects & improves elasticity.

Key ingredients
Glycerin -  Traps moisture in the skin
Aloe Vera - Calms and soothes
Rose Flower Extract - Nourishes and moisturisers
Jojoba Oil - Has anti-bacterial properties

What is it
This is a gorgeous serum that works by hydrating and nourishing the skin. The milky texture makes a little go a long way and absorb easily. The nutrients help restore hydration and plumpness. Gives the skin radiance and glow. Typical Pixi scent just a bit lighter. Suitable for all skin types.







How I use it
After toning, I apply a small 5-10p size amount to my face and neck. You can use it AM/PM, but I keep it for PM. It instantly gives the skin a gorgeous softness and plump/hydrated feel. It doesn't feel heavy or greasy. Again follow with a light moisturiser. The skin looks healthy and awake. 

Pros
- Mid priced-
Gorgeous milky texture
Light scent
- Sits well under moisturiser
Absorbs nicely
- Results straight away

Cons
Again the texture doesn't work with the pipette. That's why I've taken a picture of it out, because it just doesn't work. When I first went to put it in, the bottle was full to the top of serum, and when I tried to put the pipette in, serum over flowed. Pixi please do something about this.

Summary
These products are some of my favourites out of the range now. If you're looking for a new serum I highly recommend trying these. I love how theres an option for all skin concerns. One for exfoliating, clarifying, and smoothing, and one for hydration and plumpness. Extremely impressed with them both and I can't get enough, definitely to be re-puchased. Thank you all for reading!

This range has blown me away when it comes to high- street/drugstore/chemist skincare. The results after just one use surprised me so much. I've used them non stop for weeks and it's time to give you, the in-depth review. 



Dynamic Hydration Power Serum and Dynamic Hydration Light Cream (normal/combination skin).



This is one of the prettiest serums I own. It comes in a nice tall, glass bottle with a pump. Not great for travel (because of the glass).
Price - £22.50 for 30ml
Texture - Thin, watery, fluid
Finish - Soft, supple, hydrated skin

What they say
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum gives, for the first time, Vichy Thermal Spa Water and a micro-encapsulated delivery system of Activ Hyaluronine improve the diffusion of moisture into the surface of the epidermis. The skin feels replenished with water, as if continuously hydrated by misting micro-sprays.

Key ingredients
Thermal Spa Water - Intensely hydrates and soothes
Hyaluronic Acid - Attracts and retains moisture

What is it
This is a beautiful serum that instantly softens, nourishes and hydrates. It's light texture is perfect for underneath any moisturiser. It provides instant relief to dry/tight/irritated and dehydrated skin. The scent is so light and gorgeous. Suitable for all skin types.




How I use it
After toning, I apply 1-2 pumps on my face and neck. It glides over the skin and leaves it intensely soft without being heavy or greasy. The scent is very spa-like and calming. You can use this AM or PM, I use it at both. Once applied to the skin and rubbed in, there's an instant, almost wet feeling to the skin, because it is providing so much moisture. 

Pros
- Mid priced
- Gorgeous light scent
- Effective hydration
- Great for all skin types
- Velvety texture
- Nice packaging
- Immediate results

Cons
- None



The moisturiser comes in a nice hand sized pot. Again not great for travel because of the size and heaviness. 
Price - £17 for 50ml
Texture - Light cream
Finish - Soft, smooth, moisturised skin

What they say
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light gives, for the first time, Vichy Thermal Spa Water and a micro-encapsulated delivery system of Active Hyaluronine improve the diffusion of moisture into the surface of the epidermis.

Key ingredients
Thermal Spa Water - Intensely hydrates and soothes
Hyaluronic Acid - Attracts moisture and plumps

What is it
A gorgeous moisturiser that effectively hydrates whilst providing the right thickness and texture. Applies beautifully and absorbs easily. The scent is just like the serum ( spa-like). My new favourite  moisturiser. Suitable for all skin types.






How I use it
After my serum, I take a 20p size amount and apply to my face and neck. On top of the serum, the skin feels plumped, nourished and so well taken care of, or even on its own. The scent is so luxurious. Again you can use this AM/PM, I like it for both. It sits nicely underneath makeup. A great moisturiser for any skin type.

Pros
- Mid priced
- Light texture
- Nice scent
- Perfect for all skin types
- A little goes a long way


Cons
- None

Summary
I am in love with these products. As my first experience with Vichy, I'm super impressed! If you're looking for a new serum/moisturiser for any skin type (particularly dry,dehydrated) check these out! I can't say enough good things about them. Thank you for reading.

Before we get into the reviews, I just wanted to say I'm so sorry for not blogging in almost a week and for delaying the reviews on these products. After mentioning them in my Pixi Beauty Haul, I forgot to still write the individual reviews. That being said I'm bringing you 3 reviews in one post today! I hope you enjoy, and don't forget to watch the haul if you want to see my whole current Pixi collection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zMaRNbYcsY




Here we have : Glow Mud Mask, Glow Tonic and Glow Peel Pads




The face mask comes in a hand size tube in the Pixi green packaging. Great one for travel. 
Price - £18 for 30ml
Texture - Thick, creamy but fluid mask
Finish - Bright, de-congested, glowing skin

What they say
A purifying, glow revealing clay mask to purify and balance skin. It's our signature 15 minute facial.

Key ingredients
Aloe Vera - Anti-inflammatory
Ginseng - Stimulates and activates the skin's metabolism
Mineral Rich Mud - Draws out toxins and enriches skin with minerals

What is it
This is an amazing clay mask that detoxifies, plumps and clears the skin. It starts to dry instantly. This multi tasking mask nourishes while it cleanses so it doesn't strip the skin. Suitable for all skin types, especially congested, dull and tired skins. Scent is like all other Pixi skincare ( glycolic acid and ginseng)





How I use it
I apply a thin/medium layer all over my face avoiding the eyes and brows. The mask applies so smoothly and gives an even coverage. You can use it AM/PM, or you can save it for when your skin needs a pick me up. Sometimes I use it for a special occasion. I leave it on for about 15-20 minutes. Remove with a hot flannel. My skin always looks perfect after using this mask. It's such a great all rounder, it treats pretty much any skin concern and gives you clear, radiant skin. 

Pros
- Great for all skin types
- Softens and detoxifies
- A little spreads a long way
- Nice refreshing scent
- Handy size

Cons 
- I don't like how you only get 30ml for £18, when the cleanser is £18 but you get almost 150ml! Please Pixi Beauty increase the quantity! 



I'm sure most of you have seen what the Glow Tonic looks like. It comes in a tall plastic bottle. Not ideal for travel.
Price  - £18 for 250ml
Texture - Liquid
Finish - Smooth, exfoliated, bright skin

What they say
Oxygenating, exfoliating facial glow tonic. It helps firm, tone and tighten the skin. It removes dead skin cells for healthier looking skin. For all skin types. Alcohol free.

Key ingredients
Ginseng - Stimulates and activates the skin's metabolism
Aloe Vera - Anti-inflammatory
 Horse Chestnut Seed Extract - Soothing and astringent
5% Glycolic Acid - Exfoliates and tones

What is it
This cult classic is an acid toner, that sloughs away dead skin cells and exfoliates to reveal bright, fresh glowing skin. There's not much to say except it's one of my favourite acid toners. Typical Pixi scent, suitable for all skin types except sensitive.

How I use it
I apply 4-5 drops onto a cotton pad and wipe all over the face,neck and eyes (don't get in it your eye). You can use it AM/PM after cleansing. It's such a great simple product to help your skin mildly exfoliate everyday without having to use harsh scrubs. By chemically exfoliating everyday,  you're removing the dead skin cells that prevent other products penetrating properly. The skin is left prepped and ready for all your serums and moisturisers.

Pros
- Great value for money
- Mid price
- Suitable for pretty much all skin types
- Unclogs and tones
- Nourishes and softens
- Nice refreshing scent
- Works straight away

Cons
- Test first if your skin is sensitive to acids



The pads come in a small plastic pot. Not bad for travel.
Price - £24 for 60 pads
Texture - Slightly rough, textured cotton pad
Finish - Radiant, plump skin

What they say
Advanced exfoliating treatment pads to reveal a glowing, youthful- looking complexion. 

Key ingredients
20% Glycolic Acid - Highly effective to brighten, exfoliate and clear skin
Rose Water - Softens and hydrates
Arginine - Provides anti-oxidants that protect the skin
Vitamin E - Nourishes and increases skin's elasticity

What is it
These treatment pads are an extreme version of the Glow Tonic. They take acid toning to a new level. They promote healthy, fresh skin by chemically exfoliating with 20% Glycolic acid. Minimises the appearance of pores and lines, whilst helping to brighten uneven skin tone. They smell of strong 'acid'. Suitable for all skin types except sensitive.   





How I use it
I only use the pads 2-3 times a week as they are a treatment. Also for me they are a PM product. The difference with these and the Glow Tonic, is that after the thick solution has sat on the skin for 2-3 minutes, you rinse it off. So you wipe the pad over the skin, leave on for a few minutes (there will be tingling and flushing of the skin), then rinse off with lukewarm/cool water. 
They do instantly work and give your skin the most amazing freshness, but they are quite strong, just a warning). Definitely try the Glow Tonic first to build up your tolerance of Glycolic acid. 

Pros
- Last a while
- Immediate difference in the skin
- Doesn't strip at all
- Handy plastic tub
- Good amount of pads

Cons
- Definitely too harsh for sensitive skin
- Expensive for number of pads (compared to nip and fab which are around £14)


Summary
These products all pack a punch and definitely do what they say on the pack. If you're looking for effective, promising skincare, Pixi is the brand to try. I know I said, brighten, glow and healthy about 1000 times, but that's literally what the Pixi products are all about, and I'm not complaining! Serum and Oils post is coming soon. I hope you enjoyed this post, especially if you've been curios about any of these products. Sorry it was a long one, a lot of information to get in! Thank you so much for reading!

So you wipe the pad over the skin, leave on for a few minutes (there will be tingling and flushing of the skin), then rinse off with lukewarm/cool water. 
They do instantly work and give your skin the most amazing freshness, but they are quite strong, just a warning). Definitely try the Glow Tonic first to build up your tolerance of Glycolic acid. 

Pros
- Last a while
- Immediate difference in the skin
- Doesn't strip at all
- Handy plastic tub
- Good amount of pads

Cons
- Definitely too harsh for sensitive skin
- Expensive for number of pads (compared to nip and fab which are around £14)


Summary
These products all pack a punch and definitely do what they say on the pack. If you're looking for effective, promising skincare, Pixi is the brand to try. I know I said, brighten, glow and healthy about 1000 times, but that's literally what the Pixi products are all about, and I'm not complaining! Serum and Oils post is coming soon. I hope you enjoyed this post, especially if you've been curios about any of these products. Sorry it was a long one, a lot of information to get in! Thank you so much for reading!

Pictures of this face mask were all over Instagram for weeks. One day I was passing my local Lush and saw the bright blue pot in the window, I rushed in and purchased it. Being a fresh face mask, it has to be kept in the fridge, and I kind of forgot about it. Tonight I dug it out to give you the review. Hope you enjoy!



It comes in the typical small black pot. Not suitable for travel.
Price -  £6.75 for 75g
Texture - Gritty, creamy mask
Finish - Exfoliated, bright, refreshed skin

What they say
Well, hello, don't be shy. I caught you looking at my rich, exfoliating texture.

Key ingredients
Organic Lemon Juice - Refreshes and tones
Murumuru Butter - Protects and moisturises
Ground Rice - Exfoliates

What is it
This is a brightening, invigorating mask that instantly gives you fresh, radiant skin. It sloughs away dead skin, and gets rid of any dullness. It has a fine, gritty texture and a very strong lemon scent. Suitable for all skin types except sensitive/ very sensitive skins.




How I use it
I apply a generous amount all over my face avoiding the eyes (obviously). I leave it on for about 10/15 minutes. It does slightly harden, but not to th point where you can't talk or make facial expressions. Remove with a nice hot flannel. The grains can feel a bit harsh with a flannel, so you can rinse off if you prefer. Once removed, the skin is so soft and hydrated, but clarified and refreshed. It can be over-powering if you don't like lemon based scents. 

Pros
- Affordable
- Instant results
- Moisturises and softens
- Exfoliates
- Refreshing scent
- Gorgeous colour


Cons
- May be too harsh for sensitive skins

Summary
I love this face mask. It's so different to Lush's other masks and it definitely does what it says on the pot. As well as working wonders for the skin, its great fun to use because of the colour. A great choice for sleepovers and fun pamper nights. Try it out in a Lush store to see if the texture is right for you. Thank you so much for reading everyone!
