Pixi Skintreats Review: Cleansing Cloths, Skindrink and Milky Serum, Oh My!

If you’ve been following Makeup Files for a while, you’ve heard of Pixi Beauty. I’ve reviewed their products extensively.

Where they were once almost exclusively a makeup brand, they recently opened up their catalog to skincare products. They call the line Pixi Skintreats. Now it’s time to have a closer look at three products from the line! After all, I’m your guinea pig.

Pixi Skintreats Review: Spring EssentialsThis spring, Pixi’s suggesting three Skintreats:

Can you guess which one will be my favorite? I’ll give you 10 imaginary Makeup Files Points if you guess correctly.

Moisturizing Cleansing Cloths

Pixi Skintreats Review: Moisturizing Cleansing ClothsI love cleansing cloths. Well, I used to, until I found the majesty of the washable, reusable kind. But still, I’ll always choose something like this over using a traditional face wash. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Pixi Skintreats Review: The WipesThe packaging is great. It features both a sticky peel and a plastic door. No dried out clothes here. There’s only a very slight clean scent. It’s not cloying or perfumey at all. Best of all, it wipes away makeup better than your average cleansing cloth. Still, I have used better.

For these reasons, I give it a…


You can pick this up at Target or the Pixi website for $10 for a pack of 40 wipes.

Pixi H2O Skindrink

Pixi Skintreats Review: H2O SkindrinkLook closely at that packaging. It says “Pure Hydration Gel.” That’s important.

Pixi Skintreats Review: H20 Skindrink PumpThis uses a classic pump.

Pixi Skintreats Review: H2O Skindrink GelHere’s my big complaint: The gel is so darn sticky. Of course it is. It’s a gel. What do you expect?

It even smells like a hair gel. It reminds me of the hair gels I used in the ’90s (and I looked horrible, by the way.)

I just don’t want my face to be sticky or smell like hair gel. For this reason, it’s really a failure for me, which is funny because so many people rave about this one. I’m not a fan at all.

I give the H2O Skindrink a…


You might still like it. A lot of people do. You can pick it up at Target or the Pixi website for $22.

Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum

Pixi Skintreats Review: Hydrating Milky SerumCan Pixi salvage my opinion of their Skintreats with the Hydrating Milky Serum? Why yes, they can.

Pixi Skintreats Review: Milky SerumThis stuff is lovely. It’s creamy, sinks into the skin well, and isn’t sticky at all. I also love the scent. It smells like subtle roses. Lovely.

The only downside is the packaging. It comes with an eyedropper. You’d think that’d be good, but it doesn’t do very well at sucking up the serum. It fills up the dropper only about a third of the way, which isn’t enough for your skin.

Other than that, I liked the Hydrating Milky Serum. That’s why I give it a…


You can pick this up at Target or the Pixi website for $24.

Did you guess that the cleansing cloths would get the highest grade, but that the milky serum would be my favorite if it weren’t for the packaging? If so, you get 10 imaginary points!
