Not a G&T… try a Skin&T!

I’m sure you will have all heard of the brand Pixi Beauty before? If not where have you been!

I was SUPER excited when a package from Pixi arrived for me last Saturday, I couldn’t wait to see what was inside!

It was a package of their full range of Skin Toners, they have always had the famous “Glow Tonic” but they have recently added to the family and now have “Retinol Tonic” and “Rose Tonic” too! They are all packed with skin essentials but for slightly different purposes.

I thought I would break down what the differences are with each of them and the key ingredients:

Glow Tonic:

Retails at £10 for 100ml

  • Helps to tone and tighten skin
  • Contains 5% Glycolic acid which is a gentle exfoliator
  • Contains Aloe Vera
  • Alcohol free
  • Leaves you with smooth, bright skin

Retinol Tonic:

Retails at £10 for 100ml

  • Youth preserving Retinol Tonic which helps to rejuvenate skin
  • Helps to bring out a youthful glow
  • Soothes sensitive skin, so although it’s retinol it isn’t a no go for sensitive skin
  • Packed with antioxidants
  • Includes Jasmin flower which makes it smell gorgeous

Rose Tonic:

Retails at £10 for 100ml

  • Extremely soothing, calms skin and reduces redness
  • Has various nutrients to balance your skins pH
  • Rehydrates and refreshes skin
  • Gently removes impurities leaving a beautiful complexion

I can not wait to try all three of the tones and get my skin looking perfect! I’m just figuring out which one to go for first! Help needed?!

Have you tried any of the Pixi Toners?

What was your favourite?

Blush, Bronze, Blush 🖌

Happy “hump” day all!

This week I received a lovely gift from Phase Zero.

They have recently launched two brand new editions to their brand, bronzer and blusher. There are quiet a few different shades to chose from which cater to all skin tones.

These are the two blushers and bronzer I was very kindly gifted:

As you can see they are contained in a matte black rectangular compact, they also have a mirror inside so perfect for using on the go.

I thought it would be good to also show you them individually so you can see the shades I picked.

The Blushers:

Cotton Candy – £7.50

It is a very soft pink shade and perfect for light skin tones or a natural makeup look.

Heart Throb – £7.50

https://www.lovemebeauty.com/productpreview/product/LMB-PZ-BLUSHERS

It is quiet a vibrant pink, you definitely wouldn’t need to apply a lot! I’d say this is the one for medium/ darker skin tones or someone who likes a vibrant glam look.

The Bronzer:

Hidden Agenda – £7.50

https://www.lovemebeauty.com/productpreview;jsessionid=806C9A96BA4E6A30942669957E97D59C.jvm1/product/LMB-PZ-BRONZER

It’s definitely more of a cool toned bronzer. Perfect for also using as a contour shade. I feel it would definitely be better for light / medium tones.

I can definitely say the formula of all three products is spot on, it blends seamlessly and doesn’t go patchy throughout the day. It also has a beautiful coconut / tropical scent which isn’t over powering so if your someone who doesn’t really enjoy scented products this shouldn’t effect you.

I am hoping that more shades will soon arrive in the bronzer as I do need a slightly darker shade for when I have a tan 🙂

*Hint Hint Phase Zero*

Also Phase Zero have given me a discount code to share with you all, if you use “KIRSTYB05” at check out you will get £5 off your order!

Will you be picking any of these beauty’s up?

The Sweet Smell Of Christmas 🎄

I don’t know about you but one of my favourite things about Autumn is that’s when all the new beauty Christmas collections are revealed.

I mean it’s still 11 weeks until Christmas but it’s never to early to start getting excited is it?

Saying that these minis from Too Faced are the first thing I have picked up from any of the holiday collections, I just couldn’t resist!

These four stunning minis are all scented and smell like some of my Christmas favourites. They are all the famous melted matte formula which I personally love, it dries down totally matte but it is very comfortable and not drying at all.

I thought I would show you the shade on the applicators as it can be deceiving in the tubes. Also the shade names are all listed below too.

From left to right: Hot Buttered Rum, Sugar Cookie, Pumpkin Spice, Cinnamon Bear.

I think my favourite shade has to be Sugar Cookie, it’s a beautiful pinkish Nude which is one of my favourite shades in any lipsticks.

There are definitely a few other items from the Too Faced Christmas collection I want to pick up such as the Gingerbread Spice eyeshadow palette, that has some gorgeous warm tones and shimmers perfect for this time of year!

Will you be picking up any of the Too Faced Christmas collection?
