Pixi Correction Concentrate
Advantages: Actually works and makes the eye area brighter
Disadvantages: Might not work for everyone - Small pot easy to loose
Trying to convert my products over to cruelty & paraben free, I found myself looking on the PIXI website. It was here I was delighted to find that they show the product ingredients and it was a cruelty free brand. It was from here I got a good overview of what products I wanted to try out, so then I went over to Boots (so I could get my points)
This is priced at £12 on Boots, and I feel this is extreamly reasonable considering how good the product is and the fact that it's actually from a branded line. You get 3g of the product in a pot, now at time of ordering I never knew what to expect about the size, however when I opened it I was shocked at how small the pot was. It's that small I do think (and often have) lost this.
*** What is it though ? ***
Ok so this is described as a correction concentrate. Highly pigmented, this correction concealer instantly erases darkness, softens and blurs lines. Skin immediately looks fresh, rested, bright and youthful. This ultimate 'good night's sleep in a jar' camouflage cream is correction perfection in a pot. Rose Hip Extract has great cell regenerating and skin elasticity boosting properties. Vitamin A provides an anti-aging effect
Vitamin C brightens and revitalisesVitamin E nourishes and protects.
*** Does it work ? ***
When I tried this for the first time I loved it, and still do now. It's quite rare I use a product that often that I finish it, and when I do I normally try something different. This though I think is fab, a little goes a long way. I personally use it with a brush which I bought at the same time ' Samantha Chapman - Real Techniques foundation brush ' it's too small to use for foundation but I've found a better use for this which is for applying this product under the eyes and around the nose, as the point makes it really easy for an accurate application.
The product goes on a peach color and you really notice a difference straight away. I currently use this under foundation, on a day with-out wearing foundation, and even the morning after I've applied a little face tanner. Basically the point I'm getting across is that I find it blends that well it doesnt matter what you use with it. It tends to last as well, I haven't noticed it running or smudging, and it does the job brilliantly for a great price.
*** Would I reccomend ? ***
I would deffinitely reccomend this product, I will be re-purchasing and currently it's lasting me a good amount of time. I would maybe advise though if you are prone to wearing a lot of fake tan, or go away quite often and your skin tone changes, it might not be the best option. As stated I manage to make it work for me, however if your using a very dark shade of tan, then it may be more difficult to work with.
Summary: Overall a fantastic product that isn't raved or known about well enough
