For the longest time I’ve been super unhappy with my skincare regime, I’d say probably since Christmas or even before! I wasn’t using a serum that was suited to my needs and I found my skin looking dull and flakey, especially around my forehead. I changed my moisturiser to a super pricey one, but even that one didn’t sort out my problem areas. Shh, I’ll let you in on a secret, I can’t blame the products entirely for my bad skin months because I had been pretty lazy when it came to my skincare routine. I pretty much only cleansed and moisturised. Some days I even skipped eye cream! What the heck?! 

I was itching to try new products and believe me, it’s been a long time since I felt that way. Pixi is a brand I had never tried too much from, but the couple of bits I had tried, I loved! So I went into Marks & Spencer and picked out a plethora of Pixi products. I went with my old favourite, the Hydrating Milky Mist. It’s just such a pleasure to use, it leaves my skin feeling moisturised and dewy looking. Definitely a firm favourite and one I’d recommend for anyone lacking glow or for people with dry skin. 

Of course, Glow Tonic had to make its way into my shopping basket (aka my arms). It’s such a cult favourite and for good reason. I really don’t like exfoliating my face with a scrub, so using this glycolic acid works wonders for me. A hydrating serum was next on the list, maybe even on top of the list, and since I’m such a firm lover of the Hydrating Milky Mist, I thought I’d try out the Hydrating Milky Serum. After using this for two consecutive weeks, I have to say this is definitely what my skin was missing! It absorbs into the skin really quickly and makes a world of a difference on how the products I layer over the top perform. I no longer have any rough or flakey areas on my skin, and it feels incredible to put on makeup without worrying if it’s going to cling onto any dry patches. 

Overnight masks are my thing! I can’t be bothered anymore to do the whole 20min mask and then having to struggle rinsing it off my face, so overnight masks are the way forward for me. This Nourishing Sleep Mask isn’t my favourite find. Well, I’ve only used it a couple of times, but so far I can’t tell a difference from when I use this mask, or just a regular night cream. So yeah, I’ll probably use this up and purchase the Origins one again. However, the day and night cream I got are both wonderful products. I picked up the H20 Skindrink day cream, which is a gel texture moisturiser. It feels really cooling on the skin when you apply it and is the perfect product for summer as it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. I’d say even people with oily or combination skin would get on well with this. And lastly, for night cream I bought the Beauty Sleep Cream. All the products smell amazing, but this cream especially. Every morning when I wake up my skin feels super soft and happy! I know it sounds quite ‘yeah, whatever’, but it really does! I guess because it’s been a while since my skin felt this way, I can really tell the difference.

Pixi products are also quite affordable. They’re all around the £18-£28 mark, which isn’t a lot for good quality skincare. I’m dying to try their new Sun Mist, I think it’ll be so useful to take away on holidays. But yeaaaah, this was my Pixi haul and my updated skincare routine. Let me know if there are any other products I should try from them or any other brand :)

Lots of love, SFS.


  1. Love the sound of the whole range. I’ve only tried the Glow Tonic which I like. The overnight mask sounds right up my street!

    1. I have to say that after giving the mask a go a few more times, it's actually really good. My initially thoughts on it were wrong :)

      Thanks for stopping by! Have a good day x

  2. I think Pixi skincare is so underrated and not hyped nearly enough! I absolutely love the glow tonic, the overnight glow serum and the hydrating milky mist! They make such great and affordable products. XO

    1. Omg, right?! Everything I try from Pixi is amazing! Deserves way more hype!

      Thanks for reading x
