Review Pixi Vitamin C Juice Cleanser Malaysia


Pixi Beauty is definitely one of the brands that I personally love and trust. I have used quite a number of their skincare range and I have never been disappointed. My last range from Pixi Beauty was PIXI GLOW TONIC COLLECTIONI have had the Pixi Vitamin-C Juice Cleanser for a while now but I still feel weird with this cleanser because it's not your typical kind of cleanser where you'll have to wash it off. Yes exactly, it's a leave-on cleanser which makes it a bit weird for me and I'm still trying to understand it up until now. Lol... Keep on reading to know my thoughts on it.



What Is Pixi Vitamin C Juice Cleanser 

Pixi describes it as a gentle leave-on cleanser that brightens the skin while improving the overall tone and appearance of the skin complexion.

My Thoughts On Pixi Vitamin C Juice Cleanser

As I mentioned above, I have had this for a while now but I'm only writing this on my blog now since I've reviewed this before a couple of times on social media. So my review below is based on my usage before as the product now may not be suitable to be reviewed as Vitamin C is a sensitive product. If you are unfamiliar with Vitamin C in skin care, read: Vitamin C in Skin Care, What You Need to Know


Ingredients

Ascorbic Acid is its main type of Vitamin C for this cleanser, which shows that it is potent but I'm unsure on how much is the percentage. What's great about it is that its already mixed with Ferulic Acid and Vitamin E which makes this product more stable and at the same time double the antioxidant ammunition towards free radicals.


Besides that, this cleanser also contains Bifida Ferment Lysate a type of probiotic ingredient derived from a specific type of yeast, Orange Peel Oil that is antimicrobial and also Lactic Acid that help treats hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other factors that contribute to a dull and uneven complexion. It also contains Willow) Bark Extract as a soothing agent for the skin.


Packaging
I have always loved Pixi's packaging, it's simple and neat and the green colour will always be its signature symbol for all its products. Only what worries me is that it comes in a clear bottle which usually Vitamin C is sensitive off. But I'm sure the brand knows best as Pixi has a very good reputation in their products. Probably the mixture of Ascorbic Acid is already stable hence there is no need for a dark packaging. Anyhow, I love that it comes in a pump upwards like this one, it makes it much easier to pump out the product with just one hand, and of course, you'll have to be using cotton pads to do so.


Texture
It's very watery and refreshing and it's soapy too. Not that soapy but you could see a bit of bubble during application.


Scent-Wise
The scent is refreshing and it's not that strong too.


Reaction
I really don't feel any tingling sting during application which should be normal with Vitamin C infused products. Other than that I don't happen to see other reactions with it except that it feels pretty good after usage.


Overall Thoughts
Honestly, this product is still weird for me and its a struggle to finish it up. It's not that I don't like it, it's just that I don't find much use for it as I prefer to cleanse my face with normal cleansers rather than a leave-on cleanser. It confuses me with toner but at least I'm using this with a cotton pad, so the difference is there. I usually wear a toner by dapping it in with my palms.
I do find this cleanser useful on days I feel like I need an extra scrub on the face especially when I wear makeup. Even before I use this cleanser, I'll still wash my face with a proper cleanser and have it cleaned.

Even though this isn't preferred by me, this should be a good option for those who love replacing toners with cleansers as this would surely remove dirt and impurities away.
Overall, I'm pretty sure I can still use this as it's colour is still the same as before and the ingredients inside are pretty stable too. However, I kinda feel that the percentage of Vitamin C in this cleanser isn't that much, to begin with.


Till then peeps!
