• Pixi Rose Caviar Essence and Flash Balm – Skin Saviours?

    On my recent trip to London I ventured in to the Pixi shop near Carnaby street and was recommended these two rose products. The Rose Caviar Essence and the Rose Flash Balm.

    Pixi as a brand has impressed me as far as skincare, everything I have tried, the glow tonic (just a small sample) and the Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse, definitely peaked my interest in the brand.

    I was after a new moisturiser anyway so I wanted to get some recommendations and was shown by the assistant to the new Rose Caviar Essence, the flash balm and the overnight cream.

    I tried the essence on the back of my hand and I noticed how soft it was and still was for hours after. I was offered the flash balm and overnight cream in a little trial pot which was really very good.

    After I had used the flash balm for 5 days and finishing the pot I had a £5 voucher and a % code of for my birthday for ASOS so ordered the full size as I really enjoyed it.

    So what are they?

    Rose Caviar Essence

    rose 2

    This website claims

    “Encapsulated flower oils suspended in this weightless serum-essence melt onto the skin delivering fresh botanicals to hydrate and restore skin’s brightness for optimum radiance”

    It is a water like gel that has a lovely light rose scent and you need a small amount for the whole face.

    I apply it after my holy grail duo, NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum and the Multi Molecular Hyaluronic Complex and it makes my skin feel so soft and supple.

    I only use this in the morning but it would also be really nice at night time.

    Rose Flash Balm

    rose 3

    I have realised that flash balms are the best thing for my skin. I have tried a few and they just work for me.

    On the website it claims

    “This radiance-boosting balm is the ultimate pick-me-up for tired, lackluster skin helping with signs of fatigue in a flash .This 3-in-1,oil-free, quick absorbing formula instantly moisturizes and brightens and is great as a revitalizing mask as well as a primer to prep skin for perfect makeup application”

    This has a thick consistency, almost tacky, and a lovely rose scent, if you’re sensitive to strong floral scents you may not like this.

    I use this after the Rose Caviar Essence and prior to putting on makeup.

    This makes a great base for makeup, like all the flash balms I have used before, but I have found that this particular one really helps my skin feel good with makeup on too.

    I am really chuffed with this product and can see this being my go to for moisturiser and primer.

    I also used it slightly thicker as an overnight mask and my skin felt wonderful the next day.

    These products for me are completely underrated! I haven’t heard anyone talk about these and at a good price tag (£26 each) I think they are actually really purse friendly based on how much you need to use.

    The verdict

    rose 4

    In summary, I am really happy with the two products. I think they are great for the money and perfect for someone like me who has normal to dry skin.

    Having tried these products now I would like to try more, I am really desperate to get the overnight cream next. I enjoyed my sample and I can’t wait to delve more in to the brand. Maybe even some of the beauty products next (I do have their concealer which I am trialing so will feedback soon!)

    Have you tried anything from Pixi? Have you go any recommendations of products that I should try?
