I’ve always had a lot of love for Pixi products, but never fell in love with one as quickly as I did with this one.
You probably already saw me declare my love for Pixi Glowtion Day Dew* on my Instagram. The minute I put this stuff on my face, I fell in love. One of my favorite skincare/makeup products is MAC’s Strobe Cream- not only does it leave my skin glowing, it actually has pretty good ingredients and works great as a moisturizer. Glowtion Day Dew is a very similar product.
“Advanced illuminating skin-perfector nourishes & soothes while giving a boost to dull skin. Featherlight and hydrating, this moisturizer imparts a natural-looking radiance to skintone, making it look healthier & more even. Lavender oil calms, kaolin purifies, and mica brightens.”
What I like:
– first thing that I have to mention is the packaging. I love that it comes in a tube and the fact that it has a pump is a bonus. You know that I’m not too big on jar packaging when it comes to skincare- active ingredients don’t stay stable when you constantly open and close the jar and expose the product to the environment and air- this is why the fact that this comes in a tube is a HUGE plus for me.
-non-irritating and soothing
-it adds a nice glow without looking greasy and it makes your skin look gorgeous and healthy
-it blurs small skin imperfections, which makes it work great as a primer
-smoothes the skin and looks beautiful under foundation
What I don’t like:
-I wouldn’t use this under foundation when in direct sunlight- unless you don’t mind looking a little sparkly.
It’s been a while since I’ve tried a skincare/priming product and fell in love with it as quickly as I did with the Glowtion Day Dew. I love that it feels so comfortable on my skin, love how glowing and healthy it looks every time I use it. I’m not sure yet if I love it just as much as my beloved Strobe Cream, but it’s definitely a keeper and I’ve been using it everyday for the past week- even when not wearing makeup.
Have you tried any Skintreats from Pixi? If so, which is your favorite?

It looks gorgeous in your swatch! I haven’t tried anything from Pixi yet! This looks like it would be perfect for summer.

I love Pixi, so many of their products are part of my daily routine.
AlinaFebruary 6, 2016 at 11:10 am
I’ve had the strobe cream in the past and I think this option looks a little bit more natural, so I am loving the glow it gives off. I like the fact that it’s hydrating too always a plus for me :) x

This actually has a bit more shimmer than Strobe Cream, when in direct sunlight.
BeautylyminFebruary 6, 2016 at 11:13 am
I love the look & sound of this and have it on my “to buy” list – just need to use some moisturisers up first! xx
Paula @ thirteenthoughts.comFebruary 14, 2016 at 12:24 pm
It’s amazing, love how moisturizing it feels, too.
Jennifer AshleyFebruary 6, 2016 at 1:21 pm
This looks like a lovely product! I’ve seen Pixi sold in Target, do you know if they are sold in store anywhere else?
Paula @ thirteenthoughts.comFebruary 14, 2016 at 12:25 pm
Only online. They’re sold exclusively at Target.
JodieFebruary 6, 2016 at 1:27 pm
This really does sound lovely, although having oily skin I’m always hesitant of anything dewy as I never want to be mistaken for being excessively oily when I’m not. I’ve never tried Pixi either but it is a brand I’m seeing far more frequently! x

This works great under a mattifying foundation. It’s hydrating but doesn’t feel greasy at all.
Fabulous and BeautyFebruary 6, 2016 at 2:18 pm
So I have been seeing the new Pixi skincare products everywhere n didn’t know which one to try first. Now I know ?. This sounds great.
Thanks for sharing,

This does sound really gorgeous, although as I have oily skin I’d be a little bit nervous about trying it! It’s lovely to hear that it blurs imperfections as well :)

It’s hydrating, but doesn’t feel greasy at all. My skin is naturally oily too, and i love this!

I haven’t tried anything from pixi actually but this sounds really good. I think I’d love this in the winter time when my skin is extra dull, and I love that it blurs imperfections.
Paula @ thirteenthoughts.comFebruary 14, 2016 at 12:36 pm
It’s really cold here in the US right now and this works so well with my skin, brings instant relief to any dryness.
YizedFebruary 6, 2016 at 8:26 pm
I’ve been looking for the perfect product to give my skin that awesome dewy look, and this seems to fit the bill! Thanks for the great review!
Paula @ thirteenthoughts.comFebruary 14, 2016 at 12:41 pm
I’m sure you’d love this!

Thank you Linda!

This looks absolutely lovely, I have been meaning to try Mac Strobe cream but haven’t got a chance to get my hands on it. And now I’m intrigued by this one too.
Can you like do a comparison swatch of this and the mac strobe cream I would love to see that.

Paula @ thirteenthoughts.comFebruary 14, 2016 at 12:46 pm
This one has a bit more glittery look when hit by direct sunlight. I’m working on a post on some of my favorite glow-giving products I’ll make sure to add comparison swatches of those two!
Kiss & Make-upFebruary 7, 2016 at 8:46 am
I tried the MAC Strobe Cream and that one made me TOO glowy, so I don’t know, if the Pixie Glowtion Day Dew is similar to that one it may not be for me.
Paula @ thirteenthoughts.comFebruary 14, 2016 at 12:46 pm
Did you try mixing the Strobe Cream with a regular moisturizer? it worked for me ; )
KellyFebruary 7, 2016 at 8:48 am
This looks so pretty, lately I’ve really been into that glowy dewy look. I need to give this and the contour powder a try. My local Target never have all their Pixi products in stock though.

Paula @ thirteenthoughts.comFebruary 14, 2016 at 12:47 pm
Same here! My local Target also seems to always be out of stock from all of their most popular products.
Danielle BeautyblogFebruary 7, 2016 at 9:27 am
This sounds lovely! I usually go for more mattifying products but this seems like it would be great for a dewy glow!

Oh my gosh I love Pixi products – so hard to find them here, I have to resort to my mom coming to visit me every so often or bribing friends to bring me some…
