The whole multi masking craze is a skincare trend I’ve fully embraced. My skin is overall very sensitive and very dry, but for some cruel reason my chin and jawline behaves as if I’m still 14 and reaching for the Clearasil. I therefore like to use a more hydrating mask on the majority of my face, but I have to keep the richer and more hydrating formulas away from my problem areas or hell breaks loose so using multiple masks at the same time really works for me. My driest areas are my cheeks and nose, and my forehead can get really shiny due to the intensive moisturisers and oils I use (I sound like such a treat right now) so I like to use a more clarifying, detoxifying mask on my T zone so when Pixi very kindly gifted me the Pixi Multi Masking Skin Treats, I was all over them and couldn’t wait to smother my face in them.
Pixi are known for their for their Glow Tonic which ironically is my least favourite Pixi skincare product I’ve tried, but in the last couple of years they’ve extended their skincare range considerably and there are so many gems I recommend trying.
Pixi DetoxifEye Depuffing Hydrogel Under Eye Patches £22
The first product within my Pixi Multi Masking collection is their Detoxifeye Gel Eye Masks which were the item I was most looking forward to trying as I love using hydrogel eye masks. These eye patch masks launched alongside the FortifEye masks which are designed to be instantly firming and lifting whilst restoring, replenishing and rejuvenating the skin.
These DetoxifEye masks however claim to be instantly depuffing and reviving hydrogel eye patches, and are infused with cucumber and gold to help soothe, nourish and fortify. I think these are incredible value for £22 as the round jar contains 30 pairs of gels, so 60 in total giving you 30 treatments which is insane working out at just 73 pence per use.
So many brands charge £5-£40 for single use eye pads, so it blows my mind that you get 30 treatments for £22. They come with an handy plastic spatula allowing you to scoop your gels from the jar without contaminating the jar with bacteria. The gels are a pale green colour with almost a shimmer effect to them, and they’re nice and thin so they stick to the skin without sliding down your face, which is something I hate with gel based eye masks.
With these masks you can still walk around the house without them flopping off onto the floor, and they smell a little like aftersun thanks to the cucumber. They feel very refreshing on the skin, and I’d imagine be even more so if they were kept in the fridge but they really helped to boost hydration and make my under eye area look smoother and depuffed in just ten minutes.
Pixi Glow Glycolic Boost Brightening Infusion Sheet Mask £10 x 3
No Pixi Multi Masking Skin Treats roundup would be complete without a sheet mask (or three) and Pixi have us covered with their new glycolic base sheet masks. They contain a serum concentrate of glycolic acid which brightens and herbal extracts help to improve and maintain skin health, promoting more luminous skin.
Again I think £10 for three individual masks is really quite decent as the likes of Superdrug and Boots charge upto £4 for a one use sheet mask, whereas Pixi have perhaps a more potent formula and are offering three masks for £10. I haven’t tried these yet as I’m currently testing out another set of sheet masks for another brand, but I can’t wait to try these once I’ve finished as I need all the brightening I can get right now.
Pixi Glow Mud Mask £18
This is the first of three tube based masks within the lineup, and this isn’t a new Pixi product either but it’s one I’d never tried myself until now and the 87 rave reviews on the Pixi US website had me sold. The mask claims to stimulate, clarify, and brighten skin with its revitalising formula. The mineral-rich treatment absorbs oil, draws out impurities, and fights breakouts while giving an energizing boost to the complexion.
Whilst Kaolin and sea salt purify, and ginseng and aloe vera balance the skin. This mask sounded like a powerhouse in a tube, and the formula really reminds me of the Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask – it’s thick, with the same scent and has a dense formula which feels a little sticky on the skin.
The mask can be used all over in a thin layer 2-3 times a week, or used as a targeted spot treatment. What really impressed me was Pixi’s claims that this tube is designed to last for 4-6 weeks when using a coin sized amount three times a week, so if you use a smaller amount it’d last for even longer.
It goes onto the skin a dark grey colour, but as it begins to dry it becomes a pale grey and once I wipe it away from the skin with a damp cloth, it’s amazing how refined my pores look. I only use this along my chin, jawline and nose so I imagine this tube lasting me forever as you really don’t need very much at all as it spreads nicely over the skin.
Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask £18
Who doesn’t enjoy using a peel off face mask?! They’re always so satisfying, especially when you can see the improvement in your skin as you peel it away. This isn’t a new product to their range but it’s another I hadn’t tried before so I was really happy to finally be giving it a go. Described as being a detoxifying peel-off mask that draws out impurities and lifts away oil to reveal immediate results.
It is said to contain a unique green super food blend that includes avocado, cucumber, aloe, green tea and bamboo extract to help firm and refine. Marketed at being great for congested, dull and tired skin, I knew this would be a mask I’d enjoy using on my more congested areas. It can be used 1-2 times a week, and needs to be left until fully dry before peeling off but needs to be applied away from eyebrows, hairline and lips.
This mask has a really unique shimmery metallic effect that makes me look like Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz which is always a bonus. Some peel off masks can be brutal to use as they pull every single tiny hair of peach fuzz you have on the face. This mask isn’t like that at all, and doesn’t feel uncomfortable to remove yet it’s still effective at peeling away impurities and leaves behind the smoothest, clearest skin. It’s definitely on the more clarifying side so it’d be amazing for oilier skin types, but even on my sensitive skin, its works a treat.
Pixi Peel & Polish Resurfacing Treatment £26
The last product in my Pixi Multi Masking Collection is the Pixi Peel & Polish which is a product I already reviewed in full here. This is one of the best Pixi skincare products by far, and to me it’s the equivalent of a miracle in a tube as it makes such a massive, instant improvement to my skin.
If you’ve never tried it before, it’s a radiance revealing enzyme peel resurfaces for smoother, softer skin, and a healthy looking glow which contains natural fruit enzymes which work to loosen dead skins cells, lactic acid gently exfoliates, cellulose peels and sugar extracts polishes, lifting away dullness revealing brighter skin. The Pixi Peel & Polish Resurfacing Treatment has a super fresh and sharp scent that smells just like unripened bananas, which is so invigorating and pleasant to use.
The formula contains 6% lactic acid and papaya fruit extract as well as witch hazel, cucumber extract, orange extract, panax ginseng root extract and lemon extract. To use the scrub you simply apply to dry skin no more than 2-3 times a week and leave the mask on the skin for upto five minutes to work its magic, and allow the enzymes to loosen dead skin cells before rinsing with a hot cloth. This treatment offers enzymatic, chemical and physical exfoliation in one formula which can be intensified by massaging into the skin but I choose not to massage the grains into my skin too much as my skin is pretty sensitive and I don’t want to aggravate it.
Have you tried any of the Pixi Multi Masking collection before?
