Pixi H20 Skin Tint | The Review

DSC01171

You all know I have a love for makeup bases. I write about everything I have tried in the past. You can check them all out here!

I have been a huge fan of the Pixi by Petra brand every since Judy from ItsJudysLife talked about her in one of her blogs. I first tried the Pixi Brow Duo (which I am on my second tube already). I made a review on that product here

I love Pixi for their REAL makeup. When I say real, I mean that they encourage their followers to embrace their own and take care of their skin. They don’t really have any out of a girl’s comfort zone. Their skincare caters to a whole range of skin types in a bunch skin care steps!


But today, I want to talk about the Pixi H20 Skin Tint. It is a lightweight water-based tinted face gel that evens out your skin tone and give you the perfect no makeup-makeup look. 

This base is basically perfect for someone who loves a light base and not too much coverage. BUT I wish this had even a bit of SPF in it. Skin cancer is amongst us people! We have to protect our face at all times.

The gel itself comes out quite thick out of the tube but evens out quickly when you blend it all around your face. I wouldn’t say that this base is in no way long lasting because when you put it on, you don’t really notice that its on anyway…?

So would I recommend this to any of you? Maybe, maybe not.. If you want something light and fuss free then go right ahead! But if you are looking for something to cover up essentially, save your wallet for a more useful purchase!

Currently | My Go To Skin Care

DSC09974

I know this is a bit random but I thought maybe you would like to see what I use on a (sort of) daily basis. So this is basically what I see first thing in the morning when I walk up to my bathroom sink. This isn’t all that I have but I do tend to rotate my skin car products from weeks at a time(every 3 weeks or so). These products are just a mix of what I put on when I wake up, right when I get home from work and before I head to bed.


In no particular order(because these are all my favorites):

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil If you are looking for something that will totally remove your makeup in a single wipe, this will probably your match. Although I prefer to lather this in my hands and apply it all over my face. This also makes removing heavy eye makeup ten times easier.

Philosophy ‘Purity Made Simple’ I play with a bunch of cleaners, but this one has got to be the most gentle one that I have tried. I usually use this when I wake up because there isn’t much dirt to clean out of. But even if it is SO gentle, this would work perfectly for people who have sensitive skin.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Face Firming Oil I like to use this before I head to bed about 3-4 times a week after I shower and cleanse before I head to bed. Just 4 drops of this is more than enough. A little goes a long way! I also made a review on this a few months back, link here!

DSC09975VMV Hypoallergenics Superskin 2 Monolaurin Mandelic Acid Toner for Combination Skin If I had t compare this to other toners that I have used, this has got to be the most potent! The smell and most of all the actual product! This gets out dirt you never even know you had! I made a review of this previously, link here! Since this is quite strong, I tend to use this only 3-4 times a week!

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser I don’t know what fascination I have with black skincare products… This cleanser comes out as sort of a black get but when you rinse it a bit with water it looks like any normal cleanser. When I like a skincare product that does what it says and doesn’t irritate my skin, I am all for it! So going to repurchase this one!

Miscellar Water War | Maybelline vs. Simple

dsc09749

A gentle makeup remover is definitely one of the most important things in a woman’s bathroom because it is the first thing they use at the of a loooong day. That feeling of grabbing a cotton pad and gently rubbing it all over your face is just….ugh. Refreshing! A lot of brands have started to come out with a bunch of their own versions of this and these are two that have stood out of all of them!


These two are quite similar in the bigger picture. I usually remove my makeup with a gentle cotton pad in all occasions. But the thing that probably separates these two have to be the price and a little bit of the smell. The Simple Micelllar Water has a bit of a cucumber smell mixed with something else that I can’t really point out. While the Maybelline Micellar Water has no scent at all. Which can either be a good or bad thing.

I noticed that the Simple brand stung a little when I tried to remove my eye makeup. But nothing super painful that I couldn’t handle. But with the Maybelline brand nothing…

These two are more on the drugstore price end but one is definitely cheaper than the other. Can you guess which one is it? Its the Maybelline!

If you are looking for any reason to not use this, there pretty much isn’t… it’s probably the cheapest and most gentle way of removing makeup. I have been using this for over a month and I have gotten no pimples or random spots.
