Hey Squad, I got added to the Pixi Beauty PR list a while back, and I have been receiving new releases and best sellers from time to time. Hence, I have a handful of Pixi Beauty products in my skincare arsenal right now. Although people have been raving about Pixi Beauty for awhile, I never had anything from them prior. But it’s been a few months and It’s about time to get these reviews rolling in. I’ll share the other Pixi products that I’m using in an upcoming post, but today, let’s get into their vitamin c serum..
ABOUT THE PIXI BEAUTY VITAMIN C SERUM
This brightening, antioxidant serum provides a boost of immediate and long-term radiance. Vitamin C and ferulic acid are proven to reduce the effects of sun damage and free radicals, helping to improve skin tone and create a smoother complexion. Vitamin C brightens skin while ferulic acid provides an antioxidant boost and probiotics protect and balance.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PIXI BEAUTY VITAMIN C SERUM
It comes in a dropper bottle contains 30 ml and retails for 24 $ here. It is out of stock quite often, which already tells you it is one of the best sellers from the brand. About 3-4 drops is all you need for face and neck, so the 30 ml will last you several months, giving you a run for your money!
The serum is bright yellowy, with a watery consistency (in comparison to my Fourthray and Olehenriksen Serums) but it’s not oily. It has an obvious citrus scent.
Fairly straightforward, I´d say: You cleanse your skin, maybe add some essence or hyaluronic serum prior. The Pixi Beauty Vitamin C Serum layers on well.
While it is suitable both morning and night, I use this in the morning. It helped reduce my blemishes and even out my skin tone especiially in areas where I have hyper pigmentation. Although took about 3weeks to start seeing slight result compared to other Vitamin C Serums I have tried.
Consistency is key for maximum effect, so add it to your routine in a way that is safe and effective for you and also in tandem with the other products in your routine. I recommend using it in the morning to take advantage of its UV-protectant properties, while others find that it works best as a night serum. I personally like to keep Vitamin C in higher potency separate from my other actives like strong retinoids or acid exfoliants, just to be sure not to irritate my skin.
TIP FOR VITAMIN C SERUM
Store your vitamin C in a cool, dark place to decrease the rate at which your serum oxidizes. Once vitamin c serum oxidizes, it loses its effectiveness (and Vitamin C serums are pricey!). You’ll know when your serum has oxidized because it will turn from clear to yellow/orange or dark orange/brown.
