People love receiving beautiful flowers (myself included) but roses can be used for a lot more than commemorating special occasions and decorating your coffee table. Rose oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce redness, irritation, acne and eczema while cleansing, soothing and moisturizing. Pixi Beauty has harnessed the rejuvenating power of these delicate petals and infused it in their new skincare to nourish and revive your complexion.
The Rose Caviar Essence ($34.00) is an antioxidant-rich, weightless serum infused with encapsulated flower oils that melt upon application to deeply hydrate, tone, soften and refine. Rose Oil, Anise and Mulberry Extracts balance, heal, brighten and fade discoloration for an even complexion. The formula is also loaded with vitamins and botanical ingredients including: Bergamot, Macadamia, Sunflower, Jojoba and Aloe to restore youthful radiance while the refreshing gel texture instantly alleviates sensitive skin.
Long sleepless nights can trigger breakouts and make skin appear dull, fatigued and haggard. For me it is usually due to jet lag, working too late or staying up all weekend. The Rose Flash Balm ($34.00) is a revitalizing booster that restores tired, lackluster skin with a nourishing blend of Flower Water, Olive Extract and Witch Hazel. The lightweight cream also balances pH, enhances glow, moisturizes, soothes and minimizes redness with an aromatic rose scent. I use it under the Cavier Essence at night but it also works as a makeup primer and mask treatment when layered thicker.
One of my skincare essentials for travel is the Glow Tonic To-Go Pads ($30.00) with 5% Glycolic Acid and Aloe. These are always in my carry-on to refresh my face after a long, drying flight. I also use them to remove lingering traces of makeup after initial cleansing and they are great post-workout wipes. The pads also eliminate excess oil, dirt and impurities while gently exfoliating, brightening and hydrating.
No matter how tired I feel after a long day, the first thing I do when I get home is remove my makeup to clear my pores and prevent blemishes. The new Double Cleanse ($34.00) created by Pixi and aesthetician Caroline Hirons is a 2-in-1 product that easily slips in a tote, gym bag or suitcase. Side 1 contains solid cleansing oil that melts onto the skin and gently emulsifies stubborn makeup. Step 2 is a rich cleansing cream that you massage in and remove with a moist facecloth to prep your face for skincare products.
