Pixi Skintreats Review - Serums - Overnight Glow Serum & Hydrating Milky Serum

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!

    1. With the Overnight serum I saw results the next morning, and still do! The Milky serum shows results after just 2-3 uses. xx
