Pixi Skintreats Review - Mask & Acid Toners - Glow Mud Mask - Glow Tonic - Glow Peel Pads

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!

  2. Hi! Very helpful entry. I've just purchased the tonic and pads myself and wanted to ask, do you use the tonic on nights when you use the pads?
