• 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.

    rose 1

    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?

      I haven’t tried them however I have the double cleanse and the Glow tonic and they are awesome. I feel like this brand is really efficient and those two products sound fantastic. Too bad I don’t live in the UK anymore as I would live to visit their shop!

      The power of flowers in skincare is amazing. I use rose based products every day and my skin has never been better!

      Love the sound of the rose flash balm! I’m useless with skincare though and have only recently got myself into a skincare routine, will definitely be checking out some pixi products!

      Oh I haven’t heard of this brand before but I love the packaging and the products sound amazing! The flash balm definitely sounds like something I would use.

      I have not tried these before, but I would like to give them a go. I love the pretty pinky packaging too x

    6. February 5, 2018 / 10:55 am

      I have so many products and I am trying to use things up before I buy more but I have medium to dry skin so I’ll definitely need to check these out x

      I love Pixi products but I haven’t tried this one before. My skin is pretty dry atm with the weather being so cold and the heating on lots so this would be perfect for me x

      Rose caviar essence, I’ve never heard of something that sounds so posh for a shower in my life, but boy does it sound amazing. So tempted to buy myself it.

      I haven’t tried this brand but I really like the sound of Rose Caviar Essence to use before applying make up.

      I really like the sound of the rose flash balm as given how it sits well for your make up and makes your skin feel good is a win for me.

      I’ve heard of the Glow Tonic but these are new to me. I particularly fancy trying the flash balm. M&S stock Pixi now so I’ll have a look next time I’m there.

      I haven’t heard of this brand before but I like the sound of the flash balm. I love the packaging style!

      I keep hearing so many good things about the Rose Caviar Essence. I’m allergic to a lot of Pixi products so fingers crossed that this one isn’t an issue because I’d love to try it

    14. February 7, 2018 / 9:39 am

      I love Pixi products, and these two are most definitely on my wishlist! They sound fab 😀

      The rose scent you mentioned just turn me on. I think they will be nice for my face since I have a bit of dry skin. Too bad it’s only avail in the UK.
