Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum

the weather here today has been bizarre... perfect sunny morning, then switching between sun, clouds, and intense thunderstorms this afternoon! i'm really hoping the weather gets over itself and settles down for my lesson tomorrow. i'm also hoping to be able to ride outside... it's so much better than the indoor :D

continuing on with our Pixi funsies, today we are checking out their Hydrating Milky Serum which retails for $24. i just got sent this as a press sample... but i actually had already bought it months ago and am almost done with that initial bottle so i have really tested this baby out!


 


Hydrating Milky Serum is designed to really infuse your skin with moisture and keep it looking and feeling its absolute best. the Rosehip Oil and Vitamin C help your skin look plump and radiant. i know i'm always looking for the next great thing to make my skin look even better! it claims to give a burst of hydration without a heavy feel... but i do think it feels heavier than cream or gel serums do.

this serum is well named as it absolutely looks a lot like milk... not whole milk, though... more like skim :D  as you see in the photo, it comes with a dropper... but i read a lot of reviews saying that it was really hard to get the serum in and out of the dropper. as it is more thick than a regular liquid, i can easily see that happening. to avoid this issue altogether, i simply don't use the drop per at all and tap a little out into my hands... problem solved!

you can absolutely use this serum morning and night, but i found it to peel when applying makeup over it... making a real mess of your look! i use this product only at night :) i use some pretty intense skincare, but for most people, you would use this product after cleansing and toning, and before your moisturizer. i use it nightly after cleansing and toning, but before my retinoid gel (i use the highest strength available, so the extra boost really helps my skin!). finally, i use a traditional night cream. if you have ultra oily skin, you may only need this at night time... but i find it works best for me in conjunction with a moisturizer. 

Hydrating Milky Serum retails for $24. you can find it and other Pixi products at Target stores, www.Target.com, and www.PixiBeauty.com!! 

Happy Monday! hope your week is wonderful! Ria :)
