#MULTIMISTING WITH PIXI BY PETRA


As the weather gets warmer, I'm starting to prepare for those hot summer days and nights. One of the things I love to use are facial mists. There's something so refreshing about spraying a cool mist on your face during a warm day, or to freshen up after a long day of work and activity. I'm officially all set for when the weather gets warmer with the complete mist line from Pixi By Petra. I tested out all four, which includes the Vitamin Wakeup Mist, Glow Mist, Makeup Fixing Mist, and Hydrating Milky Mist. Retailing at $20.00 CAD each, you get 2.70 fl.oz of product in each bottle.

The Vitamin Wakeup Mist is a toner mist that you can use at the beginning of your skincare routine to strengthen and tone the skin. Orange blossom blended with citrus fruit extracts gives an awakened and revitalized effect to the complexion. I personally liked the wakening feeling the orange extract gave to my face, and found it most efficient to use in the morning.

The Glow Mist is a mist for an all over glow. It's enriched with 13 different natural oils, and can be used in the day or night for a natural glow. It can also be used to set makeup. I found that this mist left my skin with a dewy glow, and because of the oils in the mist, it also hydrated my face. This mist does require you to shake it up to mix the ingredients before you spray it.


The Makeup Fixing Mist's main function is to set your makeup for longer lasting makeup. It contains rose water and green tea extracts to protect and balance the skin, and while it claims to prolong makeup and keep it from slipping or settling in fine lines and pores, I can't say I got enough use out of it to give my full opinion. I only got one spray out of it before the pump broke, and while I can transfer it to another spray bottle, I was really looking forward to using the spray bottle it came in. While this is a packaging error, it does definitely suck knowing that they can break easily. 

The Hydrating Milky Mist is a deeply hydrating mist that provides a layer of skin soothers. This makes it the ultimate remedy for dry skin, or skin that just needs another layer of moisture. It contains my favourite ingredient for skincare, hyaluronic acid, which adds plumpness and hydration to the skin. You can use it in the morning or night, as a toner before skincare, or as a general daily refresher. This is definitely my favourite mist out of the four, and I have noticed myself reaching for it daily.


Now overall, do I think everyone needs all four of these mists? Definitely not, but I do think they are great mists for any skin type. If you're looking for a makeup setter, the Makeup Fixing Mist or the Glow Mist is your best bet. If you're looking for a daily toner, I would go with the Vitamin Wakeup Mist, and if you're in the market for a little more moisture, the Hydrating Milky Mist would be a good choice.

You can find Pixi By Petra at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada, or shop from the UK site for international shipping.
