Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist Review

Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist

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!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’d like an alternative to Fix+ which I use after I finish my makeup. But the mist isn’t fine enough IMO. Think this would be a nice finishing mist?

    • Isabella Muse

      This isn’t going to fix your makeup or make it long wearing so it isn’t an alternative to Fix+. It will provide a dewy finish if you wish to use it that way or if you have dry skin and you’re using a powder you can refine the finish and make it softer my applying a light mist of this.

      • Mira Aguirre

        That’s not really correct since Fix+ doesn’t fix makeup either. It’s just a hydrating spray too.

  • Sara Gray

    I don’t wear Fix+ for setting spray, rather as a spray to calm down powderiness.

    • Isabella Muse

      then you’re perfect! This will refine the finish of powder and add a bit of dewiness.

  • Lidia

    What are your go-to hydrating mists? I’ve tried a few but find them to be quite drying!

  • Arcy

    I just tried the Hard Candy Hydrating Primer Mist ($8). This will now replace my smashbox photo finish primer water. It is very dewy. The second ingredient is glycerin. Could you please review this one? If like to know how it stacks up for you?
