Ever since I started my blog, my feed has been absolutely plagued with tales of the magic of Pixi Skincare. The Holy Grail brand that people with perfectly flawless skin swear by. As a post acne sufferer, my ears prick up at the mere mention of a magic solution for you skin.
Why isn’t everyone using it if it’s so good you may ask? Because you have sell a kidney and your first born child in order to pay for such luxury. With any one item setting you back the best part of £20 sterling. I know right, this stuff best bloomin’ have flecks of gold and unicorn tears in there to make it worthy of such a price tag.
As I’m not in the position to take out a small loan to buy everything outright, I opted for the ‘Best of Brights’ trio. This set includes the ‘Glow Mud Cleanser’, the ‘Glow Mud Mask’ and the cult classic ‘Glow Tonic’ all in miniature form. So let’s see if Pixi Skincare really is worth the hype!
I decided I was going to be brave and completely switch around my skincare for a few days, and exclusively use the Pixi trio. Giving it the best chance to really show me what it’s made of. And the products make the following claims:
Like the fearless so and so I am, I went straight in and decided I was going to use all three products in one evening.
I started with the Glow Mud Cleanser, it is a very gentle wash that when you’re working into the skin it doesn’t foam up. It keeps it’s quite thick consistency, and feels very luxurious on the skin. Almost like you can feel the goodness being worked into your skin.
Next it was Glow Mud Mask time, and it is just that, the consistency and appearance of, well, mud. I put a thin, even(ish) layer across the whole of my face and let this do it’s own thing for 15 minutes. When I washed it off, oh my god. It had pulled everything either out or dragged it to the surface, my face has never been so blackhead free.
And finally the Glow Tonic, I put a hefty amount onto a cotton pad and wiped this all over my face after the mask. It felt like it had put some of the moister back into my skin, as well as reducing any redness that the mask had left behind. But, my favourite feature was that it seemed to go deep into my pores and just do a final sweep almost. My skin felt so pure and clean, to the point I kept looking at it in the mirror, it was that real.
I continued to use the cleanser and tonic every evening for the next 5 days. With the mask being used on one of them. And honestly, my skin feels bloody glorious. It seems to have evened out my skin tone, as once I’ve had a blemish it takes a lifetime for the mark to disappear. Resulting in a face full. Yet it seems that using this range makes my marks fade quicker, as well as keeping my spots at bay and pores feel dirt free. I went on a particularly heavy night of drinking, which usually leaves my skin tired and riddled with ‘you shouldn’t have drank that’ spots. However, I escaped with only one and even that was on it’s way out by the end of the day.
In all honesty, I didn’t want to like the products as they are so expensive. There I said it. However, they’re such fabulous quality and they really do what they say on the tin. It’s such a simple and minimal routine, and my skin has utterly adored it. It would be the perfect edition to a pamper evening.

Sadly after a week, I’m at least half way through all my goodies. So until I get a pay rise or ask Santa if he would so kindly gift me the range, it’s unlikely I’ll be experiencing it all regularly. Sorry skin.
I would definitely recommend trying out the ‘All Brights’ trio if you’re curious about the brand. However, if you can’t deal with falling in love only to know you can’t have it forever, avoid purchasing. I’m living a heart broken life. Knowing how great my skin can be, only to not be able to afford it long term. Damn you Pixi and your magical skincare.
