Pixi Glow Mist Review

Pixi Glow Mist ($15) is a new permanent facial mist that Pixi launched for the Spring 2015 season. As a Pixi Glow Tonic addict I admit I got all excited at the prospect of a facial mist!

Take a look!

Pixi Glow Mist is an argan oil based facial mist that can be used to add moisture to skin or even to set makeup! This comes in a 2.7 oz bottle but I’ve been using it for about two weeks and I feel like the bottle is completely full still with daily use! So count me surprised as at first I was, “ZOMG 2.7 oz will not last me that long…!”

For me Pixi Glow Mist is like a super budget friendly version of Caudalie Beauty Elixir! It kinda even smells the same! This has a herbal, kinda lavender scent. It’s loaded with a ton of different oils and even includes Niacinamide. I do think sensitive users might have to be careful with this one as the combination of oils plus Niacinamide won’t work for everyone. My own drier skin is fairly resilient and this worked fine for me sans breakout issues.

Now if you want a super hydrating facial mist this isn’t quite it. However, I find the formula is nicer for the Summer when skin might be producing more oil because this seems to have a knack for lighting hydrating skin and also mattifying it at the same time. It’s odd but true! This is one of the reasons it’s great for setting makeup. You can obviously mist it all over your face prior to applying your skincare. It’ll prep skin for moisturizer, lightly hydrate, and creates a nice smooth surface allowing your serums and moisturizer to absorb easily. But you can also have it perform double duty by applying your skincare and your makeup and following up with a quick mist of this to set makeup. If you’re wearing powder you’ll find it refines the finish and adds light moisture giving your powder a more softer appearance. If you’re a bit shiny you’ll find a quick mist of this over makeup will ease shine slightly as it polishes makeup to a smooth finish.

It’s an interesting product to say the least. Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir has the same dual phase formula that acts in a similar way so if you’ve used that in the past you’ll totally “get” Pixi Glow Mist!

All in all Pixi Glow Mist provides the benefits of a lighting hydrating facial mist and a makeup setting spray in one product at a nice beauty budget price tag of a mere $15!

I really liked this one and think it’ll be a great pick up if you love Pixi Glow Tonic!

    Have you tried the Boots Organic Rosewater facial mist? Just wondering how this compares. The Boots isn’t hydrating, just more refreshing & it doesn’t break me out.

    I have tried it – but I haven’t tried it on my face, you’ll laugh but I ise the Boot’s rose water as a perfume/deodorant for grimy days. I know I’m getting off topic, but it is useful if you don’t shower.

    everytime I go to the Pixi website, I can’t find anything about shipping to the U.S.! Help! How do I buy this 🙁

      you can buy it on their site, they ship to the US Sarah or wait for it to arrive at Target and Target.com.
