Get some pleasant dreams with the new Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream ($22)! Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream is a “rich night cream” that contains 100% natural mango butter, plus oils of lavender, lemon and bergamot.
At first I confused this week a sleep pack of sorts but it is in fact a moisturizer. It comes housed in a 1.18 oz tube with an attached plump. Just a note many of Pixi’s newest Skintreats like the H20 Skin Drink and Glowtion Day Cream come in this packaging and thus far I had no problem. However, I struggled with the pump on the Beauty Sleep Cream a little bit. This could be a fluke but it deserved mentioning that I had a real problem getting the product flow out of the pump!
I’m really like many of Pixi’s newest skincare products but many of them contain a good deal of fragrance which could be a deal breaker for a lot of people. Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream sadly falls victim to that issue. This has a really, really strong lavender fragrance. Lavender oil has also been known to irritate skin so just keep that in mind prior to purchasing. I don’t mind fragrance in my skin care but I’m not a fond fan of the scent of lavender so it did kind of make me curl my nose up. It’s a scent that lingers as well.
I had my doubts about the formula.
It’s actually a really interesting product and it can be misleading at first try. The consistency of the cream is SUPER light and almost fluffy. It’s creamy yes but very, very light and delicate. It absorbs super fast into my skin. When I first tried it I was like, “Nope! No way! This is not going to cut it for a night cream!” I have drier skin and I rely on my night cream to restore moisture so my skin is smoother, softer, and more supple in the AM and this formula just seemed to thin and light to do much of anything at all.
I used it for an entire month daily and I was quite surprised at how much moisture it provided. Granted, it’ll never take the place of my richer night cream but in the Summer when my skin is a lot less drier this is actually a perfect nightly moisturizer. I woke up each day with soft, smooth skin after using it. Honestly, the formula provided almost the same amount of moisture my thicker nightly moisturizer did. I had a cold earlier this month and it completely eliminate the rough, flaky areas around my nose that I typically get when I’m blowing my nose so much. It also eliminated the drier skin on my cheeks.
It did surprise me for sure!
I wish Pixi had considered doing away with the lavender though! If you’re looking for a lightweight yet very moisturizing night cream, Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream delivers even when you’re doubtful it will!
