today we're checking out Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm (press sample, kindly provided to me for review). it's a face cleanser that also removes makeup, including mascara!
Nourishing Cleansing Balm starts out as a solid, but starts melting as soon as it makes contact with your skin. once you've rubbed it around your fingers, it will completely turn into an oil. you simply rub it all over your face to remove dirt and makeup... for mascara, i leave it on for a little bit to let it break down then gently rub over it. you can use a towel to remove it, i prefer to use a facial towelette, though! a little bit goes a long way, so there is a learning curve on how much you will need. i'm not a huge fan of using cleansing oils, but this one works really well if that is your cleanser/makeup remover preference! it's a great choice for people with dry skin as it IS an oil (almond oil) and contains shea butter :) it does have an odd smell to me... kind of citrus... kind of something else. this is one you might one to sniff in store, i think you will be able to get a hint of the scent through the jar. i'm ULTRA weird about smells, though!
Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm retails for $20. you can find it and other Pixi products at Target stores, www.Target.com, and www.PixiBeauty.com!!
Happy Tuesday! Ria :)
