Pixi Beauty Vitamin C Review

Skincare seems to be getting a lot of much needed attention lately, which is really exciting because I’ve always tried to stress the importance of taking care of your skin. Makeup is great and all, but it can only cover so much. In order to have perfect makeup, you have to start with perfect skin. The two types of products that seem to be the most popular right now are retinoids and Vitamin C. I fell in love with retinol moisturizers a few years ago, but I haven’t had much experience with Vitamin C based skincare products. Pixi Beauty has quickly become one of my favorite brands and I was so interested to see what their new Vitamin C line had to offer.
Pixi did send me all five products from their Vitamin C collection. However, this is not a sponsored post. No reviews or postings of any kind were required in exchange for product. All opinions are my own.

Let’s start in the order that these products would be used. First is the Vitamin C Juice Cleanser. This retails at $18 for 5.07 fl oz. It’s a brightening, antioxidant cleansing water that includes ingredients like Orange Flower Water, Ferulic Acid, and other prebiotics to help preserve and protect the skin. This isn’t like your typical facial cleanser. It has a pump at the top that you use to soak a cotton pad, apply it over the face, and there’s no need to rinse.

This isn’t like your typical facial cleanser. It has a pump at the top that you use to soak a cotton pad, apply it over the face, and there’s no need to rinse.
Next is the Vitamin C Tonic. Pixi is kind of known for their toners after the Glow Tonic became so popular. All of their toners I’ve tried afterwards have been equally impressive, including this Vitamin C version. The toner is the only product in this line that comes in different sizes. The one I have is 3.4 fl oz, which retails for $15. Like the cleanser, this also includes Ferulic Acid, along with Willow Bark and Fruit Extracts to gently exfoliate the skin. It is alcohol free and is meant to promote healthy collagen production, as well as boost skin’s luminosity.

This does have the same type of squirt bottle that their other tonics have and feels very gentle on the skin. There’s only the slightest amount of a citrus scent, which I personally would’ve preferred more of. It absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t leave behind any sticky feeling.
Serums have quickly become one of the most popular types of skincare products, probably because of the Farsali Unicorn Tears everyone was using in their Instagram videos. This Vitamin C Serum comes with just over 1 fl oz and retails for $24. It’s meant to provide a boost of immediate and long term radiance with its Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid ingredients. It’s suggested that this should be used on the face, neck, and décolletage area after cleansing and toning. Long term use of this serum claims that it will reduce the effects of sun damage and free radicals, improving skin’s tone and creating a smoother complexion.

This serum has a slightly orange color to it, like the cleanser and tonic. The packaging is super luxurious with its glass bottle and dropper. The first time I used this, I found it took a very long time to absorb into the skin and even left my face feeling a little tacky. I’ve realized less is more with this product, so start small and add another drop if needed.
Now, let’s move on to the two moisturizers in this collection. The Vitamin C Lotion comes in a squeeze tube, which includes 1.7 fl oz and retails for $24. This is just your basic daily lotion with a boost of Vitamin C to help brighten and enhance skin’s luminosity. The packaging does have a wider opening than most other squeeze tubes and it is a very moisturizing lotion, so be careful not to squeeze too much product out. A little goes a very long way with both of these moisturizers!

This is the lotion I get more use out of on a daily basis because it’s slightly less thick in consistency compared to the Caviar Balm we’ll be discussing next. However, I still have to be extremely careful not to apply too much or it can start to feel heavy in combination with my oily skin.
Besides the tonic, I think I was most excited about the Vitamin C Caviar Balm because I love their Rose Flash Balm so much! They both come in the same packaging and include 1.52 fl oz for $24. This product is described as a brightening leave-on mask with encapsulated vitamins that will melt into the skin.

It has a much thicker consistency than the Vitamin C Lotion, but it’s very comparable to the Rose Flash Balm. Again, a little bit of this can go a very long way. I’ve been enjoying applying this after my favorite clay mask or on any dry areas around my face.
Based on my previous experiences with Pixi products, I was honestly expecting a lot from this new Vitamin C line and Pixi definitely delivered. Aside from the cleanser, I was really impressed with this entire collection and have noticed a difference in my skin. I’ve used these products almost exclusively for the past month or so and my skin is definitely brighter and more radiant. If you’ve been interested in trying Vitamin C based skincare, this is a line I would absolutely recommend for all skin types.
