MOTHER'S DAY GIFT IDEA: GIFT HER A ROSY COMPLEXION WITH PIXI BEAUTY ROSE-INFUSED SKINTREATS!



Hi there, my darlings! Mother's Day is right around the corner and I, for one, especially miss the mothership this year, having spent all of 2017 with her. While I'm too far away to treat her as she deserves, saving all my efforts for the net time I'm in the same city as her, you may be looking for the perfect gift for your own mom. If you're thinking traditional roses, I have a better idea! Grandmothers and mothers in India have been reiterating the benefits of natural beauty for years and we, being the younger, rebellious generation, never paid heed. So, it's particularly humbling and ironic when our favorite beauty brands come up with fabulous products infused with those same ingredients that our mothers vouched for so many years ago! Here's to the wisdom of mothers everywhere! Let's show ours a little bit of appreciation by treating her to a rosier, glowing complexion with Pixi Beauty's Rose-infused Skintreats line!


My mom and I are huge fans of wipes, never failing to have a stash of them in our purses. Now, admittedly, my love of wipes passed to her but I know she would love these delicately scented Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloths ($10.00 USD). Beautifully scented and oh-so-soft, they gently but thoroughly remove any traces of makeup, dirt or pollution from your skin, while still keeping your skin hydrated. No irritation whatsoever!




The Rose Cream Cleanser ($18.00 USD) is a gentle, mineral packed mud cleanser with Aloe Vera and Chamomile, especially effective if you are prone to dry skin or sensitive skin. My oily skin doesn't do well with cream cleansers but if your skin needs a gentler touch after a particularly brutal winter, this cleanser is totally for you! Special mention to the earthier floral notes which may be more pleasing to you if you aren't a fan of straight-up florals.




Now, if you have been following me for a while, you know just how much I love Pixi's Glow Tonic. In fact, it was the first product that made me fall in love with the brand! Its newly launched sister, the Rose Tonic ($29.00 USD for 250 mL) is just as fabulous and formulated to be a soothing toner for redness of the skin, while still keeping skin well-hydrated. Wonderful after a facial or a particularly astringent at-home mask or even if you have been treating breakouts, like I often am, and your skin is annoyed with you!

One of my favorite products of the Rose-infused line has to the Rose Caviar Essence ($24.00 USD). Meant to hydrate while feeling all but weightless, the gel-like formula absorbs quickly and easily into the skin. My skin always feels so soft and pampered, with none of the heaviness or stickiness of many a serum that steers me away! If you have oily skin or get overheated quickly like I do, this one was made for you!




Now, for the moisturizers. There are three pictured below which I would classify as moisturizers but each are as different as they can be.

First, the Rose Oil Blend ($is a mixed oil made from the extracts of sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed, and rose geranium. Intense and rich, I believe this would be particularly beneficial for very dry skin. I tend to steer clear of face oils, since my skin breaks out at the mere mention of it, but if you love florals and need the extra hydration, go on and reach for this!




Next, the Rose Ceramide Cream and the Rose Flash Balm ($24.00 USD) are the two moisturizers in the collection. They are quite different from each other and I personally have a definite preference for the 3-in-1 oil-free Balm, which is absorbs quicker without even the need to massage it in, feels lighter on the skin and just feels better for my oily/combination/acne-prone skin. It is meant to be a primer but honestly, I often use just this as both a moisturizer and to prep my skin before makeup before going out.

The Rose Ceramide Cream ($24.00 USD) is the more traditional moisturizer, feeling richer and thicker to the touch. Packed with both rose oil, anti-oxidants and ceramides, this is the perfect cream to reach for before bed. Smooth a little on after removing your makeup and cleansing and just let it hydrate your skin while you sleep!




Last but not the least, the two mists in the collection! I an a huge fan of Pixi's mists and I swear they saved me during my stay in India. The Makeup Fixing Mist ($15.00) is lightweight but powerful--my makeup didn't budge during some of my forays into the scorching summer nights of Calcutta but it didn't feel in the least uncomfortable! Huge win!

The Rose Glow Mist ($15.00 USD) gives you that dewy, subtle glow of naturally healthy skin. With rose, avocado and argan oil, your skin will stay hydrated and fresh without feeling sticky. Stick this one in the fridge before applying when summer comes around--you can thank me later!




Confused as to what to buy for mom? Pixi has a beautifully curated set, with all their favorites from the collection, inside a pretty but limited-edition travel bag. Snatch up the Ultra-Luxe Rose-infused Skintreats Set ($96.00 USD) as the perfect Mother's Day for mom!
