I’m not normally one for switching up my skincare. I find what works for me and I stick to it. However, even though I’ve been doing the same thing my skin feels dry and itchy when it hasn’t in a long time.
I don’t think it’s a reaction – more like the products I’m using are no longer doing what they should be for my skin. I also suffer from rosacea which doesn’t help matters and means a lot of the time my skin is red and hot to the touch even though the rest of me is cold.
This is why I decided to give the Pixi Rose Collection a try. I’m hoping it might keep some of the redness at bay.
This is my face after I’ve had a shower and I’ve been using the three products in the Pixi Rose collection after every shower for the past couple of weeks to see if they make a difference.
Rose Cream Cleanser
This is the one item in the set that I’m not that keen on. As cleansers go, it’s really not one of the best that I’ve tried. It has an odd texture and it feels like I need to use a lot of product in order to cover my face completely.
The Rose Cream Cleanser is £18 for a 135 ml tube. I’ve also now found out it includes a product I’m allergic to which means it’s probably a good thing that it’s a product I won’t be re-purchasing.
I’m just going to admit it – I love this tonic. No, it’s not a miracle cure for my rosacea but it does make me feel better after I’ve used it. I’ve been applying this after I’ve cleansed and at that point, my skin feels super clean.
I’ve never used Glow Tonic so I don’t have anything to compare it to but this definitely does what it says on the bottle! It’s designed to minimise redness and calm skin which it really does.
A full size bottle of Rose Tonic (250ml) is £18 and definitely worth the money. I’ve been using the smaller size for a couple of weeks now and don’t feel like I’ve made much of a dent in the bottle so it may be a while before I need to buy a new one.
Rose Flash Balm
This is a 3-in-1 product which I will definitely be repurchasing. It can be used as a primer, moisturiser or mask. I’ve been using it after the rose Tonic but before my thicker moisturiser meaning, I don’t need to use as much of it to make my skin soft.
The Rose Flash Balm is £26 for a full size tube and although this seems like a lot, a little really does go a long way. It’s also described as a pick-me-up for fatigued skin which might be why I love it so much.
I haven’t worn make-up in a while but I’m intrigued to find out how this behaves as a primer under my favourite foundation.
Two out of three ain’t bad when it comes to skincare for me. I love the Rose Tonic and Flash Balm but the Cleanser just isn’t my cup of tea. This is why I bought the set of smaller bottles so I could find out which products would work for me.
If you have rosacea or redness then I would recommend the Rose Tonic as a starting point to try and calm your skin.
