pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist – Zoats

I like to think that I eat fairly healthy. Yes, I do have a sweet tooth and while having fruits is not an issue, I have to pay attention to not skip my leafy greens too often.

Replacing your carbs for greens isn´t a new trend, and I think everyone has at least tried things like Zoodles once. Admittedly they aren´t as bad as I thought they would be, just add a lot of pasta sauce and heaps of parmesan and you are good to go, but I don´t think I would go any further.

Like: Zoats. Finely grated zucchini in your morning oats.

Just take a moment to let that sink in.

See, if I have oats for breakfast, I already pat myself on the back for not having a pain au chocolat. There is no way I can stomach grating zucchini in the morning oats and topping it with some chia seeds and half an apple.

But you have to get your vitamins in, which is why I reach for my pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist (*PR-Sample) every morning.

 

What pixi skintreats claims:

Boosting Treatment Toner mist gives a revitalized awakened effect to complexion. The orange blossom water base is blended with skin-loving citrus fruit extracts, lavendar, and arginine.

Before moisturizer: strengthens & tones
After makeup: adds hydration & A protective veil.
Anytime: cools, refreshes, & wakes up skin.

Facts:

Prize and size

One spray bottle contains 80 ml and retails for 21 € on the website here. After using it for two months I reckon the bottle will last around four months used daily.

 

Texture and smell

It is a mist, so it is moist upon application, but dries down quickly without feeling oily, greasy or tight. The scent is absolutely divine, citrussy, fresh, delicious. Great for waking up the senses for a fresh start on a summer day.

 

Application and effects

The mist could be a little finer, I have to make sure to spray slightly  over my head and let it rain down on my face to avoid wet blotches. My skin feels refreshed, hydrated and the niacin amide and Vitamin C in the formula do help with battling hyper pigmentation.

Does it live up to its claims?

Yes.

It awakens by scent, it hydrates by ingredients and it refreshes and cools whenever applied. The only downside I can think of is the actual mist, I wished it was a tiny bit finer.

 

Would I repurchase?

Absolutely.

I like mists in my routine and there are many that I have on rotation. This one fits in perfectly, with a little more emphasis on combating hyper pigmentation than my other options.

 

Who do I recommend it to?

People that enjoy mists.

People that love fresh and zingy scents in the morning.

And of course people with an emphasis on hydration and combatting hyper pigmentation.
