Pixi skincare review – The pixi Rose-Infused Skintreats Collection

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and talks about products I was gifted via PR. I was not paid to write this blog post/film the video. Please read disclaimer.

I admit then when the package with the pixi rose collection arrived at my door step, I was the most excited about the bag it came in.

Yes, you heard that right: Nine pixi beauty items to talk about, and yours truly is gushing about the bag. In my defense though, the limited edition Rose Travel Bag (sadly no longer available) is a beauty and, more important, super handy for someone that likes to travel.

The complete pixi skintreats Rose-Infused Collection

 

Because while Mr. Loca is pretty content keeping up with is minimalistic skincare routine (read: shower gel head to toe) wherever we go, my more elaborate multi-step routines can prove challenging when going off the beaten track in a camper van. Seven different bottles and no place to put them in the community showers on the camp ground? I´ve been there!

Of course travel bags aren´t that new to the market (I have had my current one for five years now), but the rose and mint design offers a welcome break from the usual black or camouflage offerings.

Enough about the bag however (although I admit I am STILL pretty chuffed about receiving it), let´s focus on the pixi skincare goodies that were inside.

Please do note that the bag, should you buy the pixi Ultra Luxe Rose-Infused Skintreats Set from the website, does NOT come including all these skincare items, but only a selection. I will highlight what is part of the set in the individual review.

 

 

And given that this is quite a long blog post, here is a video of me talking you through the contents of the bag, should you prefer listening over reading.

pixi Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloths

 

Pixi Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloth (10 GBP for 40 cloths)

*not part of the set*

The claims

Ultra effective pre-moistened cleansing cloths that effortlessly dissolve makeup while balancing skin.

Ingredients

Aqua, Sodium Chloride, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice/Maltodextrin, Camellia, Japonica Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Peg-40, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide

My opinion

I am not a fan of makeup wipes, I stopped using them in my early 20s and I honestly never looked back. But for the sake of a complete review, I used them for makeup removal. They take off my makeup, are moist and, with enough time and a little rubbing, get even waterproof mascara.

The rose scent is pretty strong when using them.

Recommended?

If you are into makeup wipes and rose fragrance, but I recommend you get a decent cleanser instead.

pixi Rose Cream Cleanser

 

pixi Rose Cream Cleanser (24 € for 135 ml)

*part of the set*

The claims

Nourishing cream cleanser with mineral rich mud cleanses skin as it helps strengthen & soften skin.

Ingredients

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Water/Aqua/Eau, Diatomaceous Earth/Solum Diatomeae/Terre de Diatomées, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Montmorillonite, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Squalane, Xanthan Gum, Kaolin, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Disodium EDTA, Rosa Gallica Flower Powder, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Cupressus Sempervirens Leaf/Nut/Stem Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Mica, BHT, Linalool.

My opinion

I have written a full review of the Rose Cream Cleanser here (complete with ingredient list), so I will keep it short: This is a lovely gentle, yet purifying cleanser that won´t strip the skin. It does contain essential oils, so beware if your skin is sensitive, but it is one of my favorite mud cleansers to date.

Oh, and don´t be fooled by the name: There is no noticeable rose scent to this cleanser, I´d describe it as medicinal.

Recommended?

For anyone that isn´t sensitive to essential oils, but especially for people with mature and congested skin.

Pixi Rose Tonic

 

pixi Rose Tonic (11,99 € for 100 ml)

*part of the set*

The claims

Naturally soothing and rich in nutrients, this tonic helps to tone, balance pH, minimize redness and calm skin. Rehydrates, replenishes and refreshes.

Ingredients

Water/Aqua/Eau, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Propanediol, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium PCA, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Triethyl Citrate, Rose Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Rosa Canina Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Sambucus Nigra Flower (Elder Flower) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Betaine, Sodium Citrate, Montmorillonite, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate

My opinion

A great lightweight layer of hydration that has become a staple in my morning routine for some extra humectants (works great paired with this serum) and amazing to sooth your skin after exfoliation. You can read my full review of the pixi Rose Tonic with the complete ingredient list here.

Recommended?

Yes. A toner like this will find a place in every routine, no matter your age or your skin type.

pixi Rose Caviar Essence

 

pixi Rose Caviar Essence (34 € for 45 ml)

*part of the set*

The claims

Concentrated flower oils suspended in a weightless serum-essence melt onto skin. Delivers fresh botanicals to nourish and hydrate, restoring skin’s brightness for immediate and long term radiance.

Ingredients

Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycerin, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Peel Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinenesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Caulerpa Lentillifera Extract, Bixa Orellana Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Adenosine, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Carbomer, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Tromethamine, Chlorphenesin,1,2-Hexanediol, Iron Oxide (CI 77491)

My opinion

Despite the many added oils, it is a very lightweight boost of antioxidants. On my combination oily skin it worked great as a moisturizer even in summer. My only beef with it is the glow it adds to my face. I am well aware that this is beneficial for almost everyone except me, but I personally prefer a matte face and could have done without it.

You can read the full review of the pixi Rose Caviar Essence with a complete breakdown of the ingredients here.

Recommended?

As an antioxidant rich, glow giving serum for mature or dry skins or as a lightweight moisturizer if you are more combination oily – as long as you love plump and glowing skin (and are not sensitive to the added botanicals) you will love it.

pixi Rose Glow Mist*

 

pixi Rose Glow Mist (19,99 € for 80 ml)

*not part of the set*

The claims

Packed with 7 flower oils, essential fatty acids and antioxidants, this dual-phase elixir leaves skin with a natural glow. It moisturizes the skin, improves elasticity and provides free radical protection.

Ingredients

Aqua/Water/Eau, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Betaine, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Trehalose, Panthenol, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Viola Mandshurica Flower Extract, Hibiscus Esculentus Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Vegetable Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Peel Oil, Propylene Glycol, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Tocopherol

My opinion

I know the original Glow Mist is a cult favorite (here is what I think about it), but I much prefer this one. This face mist offers hydration and antioxidants without the much coveted “glow” of the original and has become an integral part of my skincare routine. A few spritzes between other layers keep my skin very happy.

You can read my full review of the pixi Rose Glow Mist with a complete ingredient list here.

Recommended?

While I still think the original pixi Glow Mist is the better alternative for dry skin (it does contain more oils and Niacinamide) this one is more universal and a great hydrating face mist for every skin type. It is of course debatable whether or not a face mist is an essential part of your beauty routine, but I enjoy them too much to not use them.

pixi Rose Ceramide Cream

 

pixi Rose Ceramide Cream   (29,99 € for 50 ml)

*part of the set*

The claims

This ultra-rich cream is infused with Ceramides and Rose Oil to deeply hydrate the skin for a healthier, more supple appearance and feel. Antioxidant-rich botanicals help to improve skin’s elasticity while protecting against environmental aggressors.

The ingredients

Aqua/Water/Eau, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Poly (C6-14 Olefin), Hydrogenated Polydecene, Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Betaine, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Polysilicone-11, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Sorbitan Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Octyldodecanol, Dimethiconol, Butylene Glycol, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Ceramide NP, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Isostearate, Xanthan Gum, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Rosmarinus Officinali (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Propanediol, Sucrose Cocoate, Dextrin, Disodium EDTA, Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil, Caramel, Centella Asiatica Extract, Lecithin, Phenoxyethanol, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Cardiospermum Halicacabum Flower/Leaf/Vine Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil Unsaponifiables, Polyglutamic Acid, Tagetes Minuta Flower Oil, Potassium Sorbate, Betula Alba Bud Extract, Corylus Avellana (Hazelnut) Bud Extract, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Leaf Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Bud Extract, Tocopherol

My opinion

To my surprise, this ceramide cream works very well for my skin. Described as ultra-rich and suited to normal to dry skin I was afraid it would feel suffocating and break me out. Quite the opposite though, it is rich, without being heavy and I could even use it underneath makeup on particularly cold days. My retinol-battered skin enjoyed the ceramides, and while I wouldn´t describe it as particularly soothing (it does contain a few essential oils), I would recommend you try it if repairing your skins barrier is of interest.

My full review of the pixi Rose Ceramide Cream with complete breakdown of the ingredients is here.

Recommended?

To dry, normal and combination skin types, and especially to more mature skin that could benefit from the barrier repairing ingredients.

pixi Rose Oil Blend

 

pixi Rose Oil Blend (33,99 € for 30 ml)

*part of the set*

The claims

This botanical blend is infused with a powerful complex of youth-preserving oils to help improve skin’s elasticity and glow.

Ingredients

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil

My opinion

This is one of the richer face oils in my collection and definitely more of a winter oil for me. While it doesn´t leave a greasy residue it does take a while to completely absorb and is thus not suitable for use under makeup, at least not if your skin is more combination. My skin feels soft and nourished the next morning though, and I had no issues with breakouts.

My full review with complete breakdown of the ingredients is here.

Recommended?

To normal and dry skin types as well as more mature skins, although it will work on combination oily in the winter.

 

pixi skincare review
pixi Rose Flash Balm

 

pixi Rose Flash Balm (33,95 € for 50 ml)

*not part of the set*

The claims

This 3-in-1, oil-free, quick absorbing formula instantly moisturizes and brightens and is great as a revitalizing mask as well as a primer to prep skin for perfect makeup application.

The ingredients

Water/Aqua/Eau, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Propylene Glycol, Octyldodecanol, Tapioca Starch, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Stearate, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Triethyl Citrate, Aminomethyl Propanol, Sucrose Cocoate, Glycerin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Rose Extract, Bisabolol, Ethylhexylglyercin, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Citrate, Red 40 (CI 16035)

My opinion

I know it is marketed as 3-in-1 product, suitable as moisturizer, face mask and primer, but if I am completely honest, I only ever use it as hydrating primer. While it contains some humectants, I think the ingredients are pretty mediocre to use as cream, let alone as mask. As hydrating primer though I like it.

My full review of the pixi Rose Flash Balm with complete breakdown of the ingredients is here.

Recommended?

As a nice hydrating primer, but not as skincare step.

 

 

pixi Makeup Fixing Mist (20,99 € for 80 ml)

*not part of the set*

The claims

All-over setting spray for longer-wearing makeup.

The ingredients

Water, Alcohol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Caprylyl Glycol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Citrate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Trideceth-10, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Glycerin, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Soleirolia Soleirolii Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Origanum Majorana Leaf Extract, Fragrance, Butylene Glycol, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Pinus Densiflora Extract, Thuja Orientalis Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Niacinamide, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Cinnamomum Cassia Bark Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Maltodextrin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Polyquaternium-51, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pyridoxine HCl, Silica

My opinion

I might not be the best judge here, as the only makeup setting spray that ever made a noticeable difference for me is the heavy duty Urban Decay All Nighter, but I saw no distinction in the longevity of my makeup at all. It did take away powderiness when sprayed on, but I can achieve that with most face mists to be honest.

Recommended?

The added alcohol and fragrance might be a red flag for you, while the Centella Asiatica Extract and Niacinamide may speak for the product – I personally don´t need it and wouldn´t recommend it.
