Purple paradise: Pixi Beauty releases retinol collection

When it comes to drugstore skincare lines, Pixi Beauty is a good one to invest in.

The beauty brand, which hails from London, UK, has a whole arsenal of skincare and makeup items.  You may have heard of their Glow Tonic, but aside from their famous toner, they have so many great items, including cleansers, serums, moisturizers, you name it!

I’ve chatted about a few of their skincare lines, as well as various beauty products, and they recently just sent me their new retinol collection to try out.  I have been using retinol for years now, and although this is not medical-grade retinol, if you haven’t used retinol before or are scared to use it, then buying these drugstore versions are great stepping stones into trying it out.

Their Retinol & Jasmine collection is designed to renew and rejuvenate skin for a more refined complexion. The collection is comprised of six products, each one containing a small amount of retinol to help give you smooth and glowing skin.

Pixi Beauty Retinol & Jasmine collection

Start first with the Retinol Jasmine Cleanser, which helps to clean skin from dirt, makeup, and oil. It contains retinol (vitamin A) to smooth, as well as anti-inflammatory jasmine oil and ceramide to help lock in moisture. This cleanser glides on the skin and removes all impurities for smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin.

Next, go in with their Retinol Tonic (C$20), which features time-release retinol to rejuvenate skin for a beauty, natural-looking glow. It also has antioxidants and botanicals to replenish skin for a more radiant appearance.  This toner is also good for soothing sensitive skin.  The formula contains elderflower to soften and brighten, as well as chamomile to calm and minimize redness.

Next, to treat the skin, use one of their oils.  The Jasmine Oil Blend (C$34) is their daytime serum in this line, which obtains jasmine flower extract to rejuvenate and calm the skin, as well as evening primrose to help boost circulation.  It also has grape seed oil to nourish the skin.  This serum is designed to help skin recover from loss of moisture and dullness, it also helps with calming the skin from stress.

For the night time, use the Overnight Retinol Oil (C$34), which contains time-release retinol to smooth and refine skin while you sleep. It also has peptides to firm and revitalize the skin, as well as ceramide NP to lock in moisture. Over time, this serum will help restore skin plumpness and minimize fine lines and wrinkles.

To moisturize skin, the Retinol Jasmine Lotion is a lightweight moisturizer that works for both day and night and is designed to give you more youthful-looking skin. The moisturizer contains retinol to smooth skin, peptides to firm and revitalize, and jasmine oil to nourish and brighten the skin.

Finally, for the eyes, use the Retinol Eye Cream, which also contains time-release retinol to smooth and refine skin, caffeine to calm down any puffiness in the eye area, and peptides to firm the skin and minimize the look of fine lines.

I love the idea of this collection, but like I said in the beginning of this post, keep in mind that since this is a drugstore line, this doesn’t include the same amount of retinol that you would find in over-the-counter retinol products.

I would recommend these products for those in their 20s and then switch over to something a little more powerful as you get older.  This is also a great line to dip your toes into the retinol game.

Overall, I think this would be of value to pick up if you are looking for a skincare line that is designed to give you smooth and bright skin.
