Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist ($15) is one of several new, permanent Pixi Skincare products that launched for Spring 2016. There’s also a new Hydrating Milky Serum if the mist isn’t appealing to you!
Pixi markets this one as a deeply hydrating mist that is an “ultimate remedy for dry skin”. I’m so on board with that.
Let’s take a look!
Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist comes housed 2.7 oz bottle with a fine mist pump that delivers a perfect fine mist to face and skin. It deserves to be mentioned this mists very, very finely so if you wear mineral makeup and want to add a little bit of a dewiness to the finish of it this is a perfect way to get that done as you won’t come out of the experience soaking wet.
This is a nice to have item for very lightweight moisture. It’s basically a mix of water and glycerin that gives it a light moisturizing effect on skin. Personally I have my favorite highly hydrating facial mists that I tend to stick with so this wasn’t particularly as “ultimate” as it was marketed as. I’d use this in the day to freshen up since it delivers a really light misting of moisture or even to add a little hydrating if I was setting with powder or wearing a powder foundation.
It’ll also work a treat as a moisturizer for oily skin. You can lightly mist it on, pat gently, and no need to follow up with anything heavier. However, dry skin users obviously will have to. It does have a strong fresh, floral fragrance that may or may not be an issue for sensitive users.
I’ll express some disappointment here as if you’re calling it an “ultimate remedy for dry skin” one would expect way more moisture than this provides. But all in all this one is a nice, lightly moisturizing mist and maybe that’s really all some people want.
Personally, I’m all about MORE hydration!
