Pixi Vitamin C Carviar Balm Review

Pixi Skintreats Vitamin C Caviar Balm is another product in Pixi Beauty's Vitamin C range, which is the last step of the range. It's said to be a leave-on mask instead of a moisturiser which makes it confusing how to use it properly. Below is a breakdown on this product and what you should know about it.


What is Pixi Vitamin C Caviar Balm?

According to Pixi, it's a leave-on mask that helps to achieve deep hydration and brightening. So in other words, this is moisturiser. I can't figure out why Pixi chose to name it a mask, even though a leave-on mask, it functions the same as the moisturiser.

How To Use This Caviar Balm?

It could be used daily or as often needed.
After cleansing your face and prepping it with toner and serum take a penny size of balm.
Massage Pixi's Vitamin C Balm on your face and allow the encapsulated vitamins inside to melt into the skin. Wait for the balm to be fully absorbed before moving on to sunscreen.


My Thoughts on Pixi's Vitamin C Caviar Balm

Honestly, not my first pick for the last step of my skincare routine but I prefer this Caviar Balm better than it's Vitamin lotion. This caviar balm is thick like a balm but less oily which contains capsulated vitamins which will then melt and absorb during application.


Ingredients
As the others in this range, Pixi's Vitamin C Caviar Balm uses Ascorbic Acid as it's main choice of Vitamin C and also includes Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid which makes this product stable. Besides containing quite a number of emollients it also has quite a number of essential oils too.


Packaging
Love that it comes in a small plastic tube. Its spout is also small that makes it easy to control the amount of product we want. Besides, we don't need much for each use.


Texture
It thick like caviar probably. I never tried caviar before so I can't say. LOL... But since it's called caviar by Pixi I assume it should probably have a similar texture. It's very thick and creamy and it absorbs well into the skin too better than their lotion. What different is that it contains capsulated vitamins which then melts once applied into the skin.


Scent-Wise
You can expect it has a very strong fragrance with the number of essential oils included. It has a very calming scent of oranges.


Reaction
I didn't experience any bad reactions nor did I see any improvements with this too.



Overall Thoughts On Pixi's Caviar Balm

Honestly, I don't have much to say on this. I did enjoy using it since I managed to finish almost the whole tub but I don't see much difference using it either.


My Rate

Rate: 3/5

Repurchase: Probably no
