Well, I am trilled to say that Pixi by Petra is back in Canada, this time at Shoppers Drug Marts across the country (so way more stores and better availability in more remote areas). The brand has gone through a bit of a face lift since it was last here, and has some new exciting products too.
I was lucky enough to meet the fabulous Amanda Belle from the brand again (we met in 2013 at a pre-launch for the brand) at an event and learn about what is new and what they have brought with them to Canada this time around. I also got to bring a few goodies home with me, so let us take a look at what the brand has to offer.
Nourishing Sleep Mask:
Apply 2 to 3 times a week at night after your skincare routine to help moisturize, protect and heal your skin during your sleep. Hyaluronic acid helps plump and hold in moisture, while fruit and flower oils soothe the skin. It helps seal in the moisturizers and skin products you use before it while being incredibly nourishing on its own. As someone who suffers from dry dehydrated skin I absolutely adore sleep masks including this one. I love the texture of it and how I wake up with plump and visibly hydrated skin in the morning. The best part is you don't need to slather it on, a quarter sized amount is enough to even help my dry skin out.
24K Eye Elixir:
Filled with collagen to help repair delicate eye tissue, peptides to plump fine lines, while the roller cools the area and increases circulation (you can even put it in the fridge to increase the cooling effect). I haven't seen any drastic changes in my eye skin, but I do highly like the feeling and how refreshed my eyes are after I use it.
Rose Oil Blend:
Rosehip oil is a skin care savour, this blend is a miracle worker for me. Blended with oils like sweet almond , jojoba and pomegranate seed oil it has a ton of skin loving oils in it, not just rosehip oil. You can use it on its own or add it to other skincare products to boost their healing properties and hydration levels. I personally love using it both ways and this has quickly become a holy grail product for me, there is no way I will not be rebuying this.
Vitamin Wake Up Mist:
This spray toner can be used just about any time of the day, but the name suggests it is great in the AM. Filled with vitamins, orange blossom water and fruit extracts it helps wake up your skin while toning. You can use it before your moisturizing routine to tone, after makeup as a setting spray and whenever to refresh your skin. I am loving this this stuff because, well I love toning mists that are setting sprays.
Peel & Polish:
Containing both fruit acids (it has 5% lactic acid in it) and a physical exfoliants to help get your skin smooth. Applied to dry skin, you massage it around and get the physical exfoliants to scuff off flaky skin, then you leave it on for 5 minutes for the acids to do their work, 2 to 3 times a week. Together you get a really great finish to your skin that is super smooth. The great thing is you get to customize how much scrubbing you want to use with a product like this, just massage a bit for a light scrub or massage more for when your skin is acting up or in problem areas. Personally I really like it but wish there was a tad bit more scrub to cream ratio in the product, but then I remember that there is the acid so I don't need to go overboard with scrubbing anyways. I find it incredibly easy to rinse off and effective to use, definitely a rebuy for me.
