I’m currently obsessed with Pixi Nourishing Lip Polish ($12) because my lips are dry and scaly and I can exfoliate them at my office and no one is the wiser. Pix Nourishing Lip Polish is a multitasking hydrating, shiny lip treatment does double duty as an lip scrub on the sly which launched with the new Pixi Skincare Collection for Spring 2016.
Take a look!
Pixi Nourishing Lip Polish is likely the first lip exfoliator that has an applicator which makes it easy to carry around with you and to casually apply at your desk at work. Promise no one will be the wiser your sloughing off dead skin from your lips, it’ll just look like you’re applying your lipgloss.
This is a thin, slick, clear transparent gloss that has tiny grains of sugar that act to gently exfoliate lips. It’s a funny little product as it feels and looks like a clear lipgloss with a ton of shine but if you run your tongue across your lips it feels grainy and sandy. You can actually leave it on if you want as the grains are not visible and unless you’re kissing someone no one will be the wiser that you have an exfoliating scrub on your lips versus a lipgloss. I think that’s kinda why I like it because I don’t have to tissue it off after I use it! I simply leave it on because it provides light moisture and shine to my lips.
The applicator is the real star of the show though. It’s a slanted applicator which has tiny spikes that act to gently buff your lips as you apply the product. I simply swipe the applicator across my lips a few times and this combined with the graininess of the formula will act to buff away flaky, dry skin. I buff it on using the applicator and a thin layer is left behind after which adds shine to my lips and light moisture. It’s a bit sandy but not uncomfortable so I just leave it to add moisture to my lips after my scrubbing! My lips are dry as heck at the moment and this did a great job smoothing them out and whisking away flakes while providing nice, light moisture.
I loved the fact that it has an applicator as that makes it perfectly portable. This is pretty unique as most lip scrubs come in little pots with a screw top lip making them not very travel friendly!
For sensitive users this has a sweet citrus-y flavor and fragrance I found pleasant but not be for everyone.
All in all I loved this little lip polish and thought it a great addition to my makeup bag.
If you have dry lips do pick it up!
