Pixi Rose Glow Mist
The Pixi #MultiMisting Facial Mist collection was recently expanded thanks to the Rose Collection Skintreats range which I featured here. I already own the Pixi Glow Mist and it’s one of my favourite skincare steps as it’s so refreshing on the skin, but it works wonders when spritzed directly onto my BeautyBlender. Considering how much I liked the original, I wasn’t sure I’d love the Pixi Rose Glow Mist £16 as rose really isn’t one of my favourite scents.
Rose is a really lovely skincare ingredient and is known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, but it’s just the scent of rose I don’t love. Authentic rose scents are really pleasant, but the powdery sickly rose kind of scent isn’t something I can get onboard with so I wasn’t sure whether the scent of the Pixi Rose Glow Mist would be a deal breaker for me or not.
“This dual-phase elixir is packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, leaving skin with a natural glow. It helps to moisturise skin, improve elasticity and provide free radical protection, and contains seven flower oils.”
• Rose Oil moisturises and restores
• Argan Oil hydrates and smoothes
• Avocado Oil is an excellent source of fatty acids and antioxidants
The Pixi Rose Glow Mist has the bi-phase formula that we saw with the original Glow Mist, and instead of being clear in colour, is two shades of pink which I think is a nice touch for the rose range, especially with the rose gold coloured rose images on the bottle. Before use, you simply shake the bottle to mix the mist and you can use it in three ways.
It can be used prior to makeup so it helps to calm, create a moisture barrier and smooth the skin. It can be used after makeup to set your makeup and add a natural dewy finish, and lastly it be used anytime as a refresher whilst moisturising and plumping the skin.
I don’t believe there’s anything in the ingredients list of the Pixi Rose Glow Mist which would suggest that it would set your makeup, and if you were wanting a mist to lock your makeup in place, their Makeup Fixing Mist is a much better option.
The scent of the mist is not too overpowering, but it’s more of a powdery rose scent which doesn’t bother me hugely as the scent does dissipate quickly so if you’re like me, and rose isn’t your thing, don’t let that put you off trying this mist as it’s really not bad at all.
I don’t find that it adds as much of a glow as the original Pixi Glow Mist as that really is one of the best facial mists I’ve tried, but instead of a glow I find that this Pixi Rose Glow Mist offers a touch more hydration, and leaves the skin feeling exceptionally soft.
If I had to choose between the two, I think I would choose this rose version as I love a good hydrating mist and I like that when my skin’s sufficiently hydrated, it tends to glow anyway so the extra hydration of the Rose Glow Mist is my preferred version from the two.
Have you tried any of the Pixi #MultiMisting collection?
