Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist ($15) is new, refreshingly effervescent facial mist that promises to wake up your skin. Honestly, it smells like a glass of ice cold 7-Up! I’m obsessed with facial mists and I have quite a line up of different ones I use. Pixi has a slew of different ones to choose from lately like a new Sun Mist, a Hydrating Milky Mist, Glow Mist, Makeup Fixing Mist, you name it they have a facial mist formula for it.
Vitamin Wakeup Mist is their newest cocktail that promises to awaken your complexion. This one acts as a toner that hydrates with glycerin and castor oil. It also contains orange blossom water as a base with other citrus-y ingredients thus that yummy 7-Up scent I’m getting.
Let’s take a look!
Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist can be used as a toner treatment of sorts in the AM or the PM. I actually use it after washing my face in the evening before any other skincare. In the morning, I use it after my shower! I mist it on, let it dry down while I try, and follow up with my other skincare. It’s quite a lovely little mist with a fresh, citrus-y scent that has an effervescent pop that tickles you nose a little. It smells amazing! Like 7-Up!
It’s actually not a super hydrating facial mist but it’ll add light moisture to your skin while toning your skin aka removing anything that might be sticking around after you clean your face like leftover cleanser or even dirt, oil, and makeup your normal cleanser left behind. But in order to use it as a toner I recommend misting it on a cotton round and swiping it across your face for the best results. As for me, I just mist on and go in the AM (but I use a different toner and facial mist as part of the my nightly routine).
As much as I like this it’s only fair to give out some warnings. For one thing, the fragrance is pretty intense and everyone won’t be excited about it as much as I am. Sensitive users, you might want to skip. It also contains a host of citrus oils which can be an issue for some skin types not to mention it contains niacinamide which you don’t want to get into your eyes as it’s been known to sting in my opinion! So, squeeze those peepers closed tight when misting.
