Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream

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.

Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream Swatches

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!

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.

    Thank you for mentioning the lavender. I’m allergic and it triggers a huge asthma attack, so I’m careful with anything with “sleep” in the title. I wish “sleep” did not automatically make nearly every company ever think they needed to use lavender.

      LOL I agree! I was going to mention in my review that they probably had this idea that calling it sleep cream and putting lavender in it was cute. But it isn’t. I hate the smell of it. I’m not allergic just not a lover of the scent of lavender. And it’s pretty highly fragranced so def stay away from it if you’re allergic!

    Lavender has proven soporific properties, as well as anti inflammatory and antiseptic properties so that’s probably why it’s a popular ingredient in ‘sleep’ products. Altho as you say, it’s also a known potential allergen, but so are a lot of essential oils which give these aromatic properties, those are commonplace in natural products. Clinique doesn’t use fragrance in its products, maybe worth trying Clinique?

    I was having the same problem with the pump so I quit using it ☹️

      It’s weird as I have a few other of the pixi line with the same packaging and have no issues!
