Pixi By Petra - Hydrating Milky Peel

There are so many new releases from Pixi Beauty right now that I just love that there is no much to try, get to know and wait with excitement as to what could possibly come next.  If you have never come across Pixi Beauty before, then the term 'Glow Tonic' should hopefully mean something to you.  For me, Glow Tonic was my introduction to the brand some years ago now and it is still something I have on my bedside table.  

The latest launch I have been loving is the Hydrating Milky Peel (£24) and it is something I was introduced to in the Carnaby Street store when I went in to repurchase a few products as a gift for a friend.
Pixi By Petra - Hydrating Milky Peel
I love my lazy skincare, there are some days when I don't want to be spending half an hour to an hour taking the day off my face using numerous products and I always look to a group of products within my stash that helps me to complete the task in minimal time, whilst still being effective. The Hydrating Milky Peel is described as being a gentle micro-peeling cream which is so gentle, you can use it daily if you wish too.  Its job is to clear away dead skin cells for delicate brightening of the skin.

Coming from Pixi, there is always going to be a whole host of incredible ingredients used to make the product and within the Milky Peel it you will find it is enriched with calming and hydrating coconut which sit alongside some skin-balancing probiotics and natural humectant, cellulose which gently exfoliates the skin, without stripping it, to lift away dead and dry skin cells, as well as dirt, impurities and toxins and it, does all of this without aggravating the skin.  There is also the inclusion of arginine which helps to increase collagen and elastin production for firmer, plumper skin but it also acts as an antioxidant to the skin too.

Packaged inside a squeezy tube, you need just a thin layer adding to cleansed skin whilst avoiding the eye area. The instructions state that you should gently massage and rinse away after 3 minutes. So for me, this is where the lazy but effective skincare aspect comes into play because 3 minutes really isn't going to delay you or stop you from getting on with your day. I always add mine before getting into the shower and I rinse it off there using a cloth that has been under warm running water.  I really like the texture of this Peel, if you have used the Peel and Polish, then it is similar to that, but without the fruity scent, this one instead has a slight Coconut scent, which I absolutely love.

The end result using this Milky Peel is for me, quite something.  I have mentioned quite regularly that I have combination skin which leans to the oily side but in doing so, I have dry patches of skin on the cheeks and often between my brows, so those are the areas I tend to pay the most attention too when it comes to exfoliating.  I always opt to use something that is non-abrasive unless I feel the need to add more pressure and this Peel does everything I really need it too.  I love that it can be used daily, though I tend to use it just a few times a week for the time being.    I find the Milky Peel to be instantly cooling on my skin and it definitely hydrates and works incredibly well on those dry patches of skin without exacerbating the problem.

The Pixi Hydrating Milky Collection contains no less than 8 products which includes a Cleanser, Tonic, Makeup Remover, Lotion, Serum, Mist and of course this Peel. For me, this is definitely a line of products I want to explore fully and I have my eye on both the Cleanser and the Serum right now.

Are you a fan of Pixi by Petra Beauty and do you have a favourite product?

  6. I've not tried the milky collection yet because I've been enjoying my rose products so much! There's been so many new releases recently that it's hard to keep up.

  7. Totally sold this to me! One for my "I don't need anything new, but I wantttt it" list xx

  8. So is this more of a gommage peel instead of a physical or chemical peel?
