Pixi Hydrating Milky Peel review

Pixi Skintreats Hydrating Milky Peel is an addition in Pixi's Hydrating Milky range. It's not supposed to be used everyday since exfoliating products could cause the skin barrier to thin but . Pixi describes it as a gentle exfoliation cream so it probably doesn't have a high dosage of exfoliating agent. However, this is only my opinion not a fact. Keep on reading to know the deets of this peel as I'll breakdown the ingredients used in this peel.

What is Pixi Hydrating Milky Peel?

According to Pixi Beauty it's a gentle micro-peeling milk peel which moisturises the skin and gently exfoliates at the same time. It's similar to most of the peels that Pixi offers, just this is another flavour.

How To Use Pixi Milky Peel

First is by applying a thin layer to clean skin (make sure to avoid eye area). Let it dry on the skin for two to three minutes then gently massage the peeling cream into the skin and then rinse it off with water.

My Thoughts on This Peel

I always love Pixi's peels, it feels satisfying after every usage. I can't remember the last time I tried peels from a different brand.

Swipe left for more pictures:

This peel contains almost similar ingredients as their Hydrating Milky Cleanser but this exfoliating cream contains natural BHA. Apart from that it also contains other skin loving ingredients that's great for the skin. It does have fragrance and a few comedogenic ingredients but it's still free from parabens.

Similar to Pixi's other types of peels, this milky peel is packed inside its signature plastic tube with a clean colour of white and gree. Honestly, Pixi products are just so instagramable. I haven't had any issues with spills but sometimes I tend to missplace the cap since its quite small.

It's a very light cream, almost like gel which feels rough as you can feel those micro particles within a pinch of the product. It feels good upon application but leaving it dry on the skin does feel so satisfying. Pixi Beauty advises to put a thin layer but it'll be hard to rub it in. So when rubbed on the face it feels kinda dry but you'll see the particles changing into a kinda white clay. Once the face is rinsed and dry, the skin feels amazing.

Pixi products usually have a strong scent since they normally use fragrance, but it doesn't bother me much. 

I've only used this a couple of times but each time I use it really does give a satisfying feel to the skin. It's like it deep cleansed the skin. I didn't encounter and irritations or bad reaction while and after using this peel.

Overall Thoughts
I feel like this exfoliating cream is really suitable for those who have high sensitivy with exfoliating products. Among the products exfoliating products I've tried this seems to be the most gentle but I do somehow question the effectiveness of it. I can't really say much on this but I just love using this, it's pleasing to use during and after.

My Rate
Rate: 4/5
Repurchase: Yes! But let me try finish this off first.
