PIXI - The art of #multimisting*

We have always heard of misting products to set the face, or prep the face as a primer - however it never dawned on me that you can multi-mist. I already practice the art of multi-masking, which is to get a different type of mask and apply it on different areas of the face to address different concerns...why wouldn't I do it with my sprays? 

I was sent four of the Pixi Sprays you see here - in the below pics, from left to right in the pictures above we have: 1) Glow Mist 2) Hydrating Milky Mist 3) Makeup Fixing Mist and 4) Vitamin Wakeup Mist 

Glow Mist
This product is said to give a glowing, luminous complexion to your skin and to smooth it out. It contains 13 natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts - which is why you see the separation in the product. There is a layer of oil that floats on the top that some people may misunderstand as product damage. No, it's not - I saw some YouTubers confused by that - it's litearlly oil. You should shake this product before using to combine it all together and get the true benefits of the product. This product also claims to hydrate, protect and nourish while setting makeup and adding a dewy finish and is said to suit all skin types. 

Thoughts: If you do not like a dewy look, please do not use this product. Also, I think that this product really isn't suitable to all skin types, I am combination skin with an oily T-Zone and I found this product to make me look really greasy - like a sheen was over me. While this is hydrating, it did move my make-up around after 2-3 hours. Out of the 4 sent to me, 

Vitamin Mist
This is considered a boosting treatment toner - it gives a revitalized and awakened effect to your complexion. The orange blossom water base is blended with skin-loving citrus fruit extracts, lavender, and arginine. Before moisturizer: strengthens & tones. After makeup: adds hydration & A protective veil. Anytime: cools, refreshes, & wakes up skin.

Thoughts: I really enjoyed using this as a toner as opposed to a make-up setting spray. The citrus scent really wakes you up, refreshes and acts to brighten your skin.


Makeup Fixing Mist
As stated on their site, this product was created to prolong makeup wear, provide a soft-focus finish and keep it from moving, melting, and settling into fine lines or pores. The rose water and green tea infused formula comforts, protects and balances skin for a fresh face. It contains a blend of black oat, provitamin A, and linoleic acid makes this rejuvenator the perfect first layer of moisture before serums or makeup. 

Thoughts: I really enjoyed this product - the scent of the rose water and green tea was very refreshing and light, not obnoxious. I used this to set my make-up and it gave me about 7-8 hours of wear (basically the duration of my work day). It is hydrating, but not dewy and does not leave a sheen like the Glow Mist. I cannot really speak to the "soft focus" claims, but I did overall enjoy this product and being from the drugstore, I think it's an added bonus.

Hydrating Milky Mist
This is described as a featherlight mist provides an instant surge of hydration with hyaluronic acid to plump skin. If you are a follower of my blog,  you will know that I am a HUGE fan of hyaluronic acid. I love the literal "surge of hydration" it pumps into your skin leaving it plump and youthful. Ever since I started using products with hyaluronic acid in my skin care routine about 2 years ago, I notice an almost reverse in time affect on my skin. So I recommend this as well for after you cleanse the face after your toner.

Of the four products sent to me, I would recommend the Hydrating Milky Mist as well as the Makeup Fixing Mist. Have you tried any of these products before?

Until next time, XO - M.
