Pixi, Glow Mud Cleanser: REVIEW

The brand:

Widely available, always been cruelty free, you know em!

The product:

Clay based cleanser. They say; ‘active yet gentle cleanser with 5% glycolic acid’. Active and gentle, which is true: but quite contradicting terms don’t you think?

Who can use it:

All skins, unless you’re very sensitive to glycolic acid.

Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?:

Fully CF, PETA approved. And vegan.

Ingredients:

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Diatomaceous Earth, Glycerin, Glycolic Acid, Sodium Glycolate, Lauroamphocarboxyglycinate and Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Squalane, Anthemis Nobilis Flower (Chamomile) Extract, Saponaria Officinalis Leaf/Root Extract, Hexylene Glycol (and) Fructose (and) Glucose (and) Sucrose (and) Urea (and) Dextrin (and) Alanine (and) Glutamic Acid (and) Aspartic Acid (and) Hexyl Nicotinate, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Corylus Avellana (Hazelnut) Seed Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance, Chlorphenesin, Guar Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citric Acid

Not in the ingredients:

mineral oil, SLS, beeswax

Problematic ingredients?:

Glycolic if you’re very sensitive, and essential oil based fragrance. Fine for most though.

Packaging:

Easy tube. No leaks.

How to use:

This is not a makeup remover. Either second cleanse or morning cleanse. This is one of the only cleansers I would use in a morning shower. It’s ideal for perking your skin up a bit. But otherwise I would massage into skin, brush my teeth, and then remove with a flannel. Do not get this near your eyes.

How much:

£18 for 135ml

The Good:

Face feels cleansed and not stripped at all. Glycolic is enough to make face a bit more glowy without beign too strong. No foam whatsoever which I love. They are right in saying it’s active but gentle.

The Bad:

Nothing, it’s a great cleanser. Just don’t get it in your eyes.

Recommend?:

Yes.

Avaliable:

everywhere now! Cult Beauty, M&S, Boots, Look Fantastic
