Pixi Skin Mists
You know when a skincare product launches and you just get really overexcited? That was exactly what happened when I saw Pixi had extended its range of skincare mists. I'm a huge fan of skin mists and often use them to top up my skin's hydration when I'm on holiday or to try and liven up my face while strolling through an airport (with a quick stop off at the La Mer counter!).
So here's a little guide to what does what...
Vitamin Wakeup Mist (£16) Best applied to a clean face first thing in the morning, this is a boosting toner to give a revitalized, awakened effect. It is filled with citrus ingredients to perk up the skin before moisturisers. Out of all four of the mists I wasn't so keen on the smell of this one but it definitely helped to perk up my skin!
Glow Mist (£16) This is one of the Pixi 'classics' as it was launched a few years back. It gives a radiant, dewy effect and is enriched with 13 different oils to hydrate and nourish skin. Shake well to mix in the oils then the mist can either be applied morning or night; on bare skin or over makeup. I use this on makeup free days or apply a couple of spritzes over makeup to give me a dewy glow.
Makeup Fixing Mist (£16) I was really excited to give this a try as I don't often use a makeup setting spray. I've heard good things about the Urban Decay spray but haven't really seen other products leading the way. I often worry that makeup fixers can be a bit too chemically and cause me to break out in spots but this spray contains all natural ingredients - like rose water and green tea - that protect and balance the skin while holding on to makeup.
Hydrating Milky Mist (£18) In terms of hydrating sprays I always reach for my La Roche Posay water, but recently my skin has been in absolute havoc and has been extremely dry. As well as using a serum and moisturiser day and night I now like to use an additional hydrating spray to lock in moisture. This mist is ultra light and contains hyaluronic acid to give an instant layer of hydration and help plump up the skin.
