My Favorite Pixi Beauty Skincare and Makeup Items #PixiPretties #PixiSkinTreats Plus Giveaway


Hey guys, we're less than a month from the 7th Blogoversary of Polarbelle.  In the time that I've been visiting with you online, I've found so many good brands to bring to you and Pixi Beauty is one of those.  Today we'll be talking about my favorite skincare and makeup items from Pixi.  I'm going to let the video do the talking and at the end is a Pixi Beauty giveaway.  The giveaway ends on 10-1 at 11:59 pm.

The Pixi Beauty Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Collaboration Review #PixiPretties


Many, many squeals of excitement erupted from me when I received my Pixi Pretties package with four collaborations that Pixi Beauty created with beauty influencers.  It was a huge box the size of a suitcase.


The box is so big, there was nowhere in my home with adequate lighting to take pictures.  The Pixi Pretties collaboration contains four unique sets of creations which are found when I open the delicious box.


Each collab will be featured either here on my blog, on my youtube channel, or both.

It's Judy Time created full eye and lip kits.


Aspyn Ovard worked with Petra, Pixi Beauty brand creator and owner, to formulate three glow-y cheek powders and a kit containing a lower lash mascara and brow gel.


Maryam Maquillage, one of the nicest youtubers on the planet, created 2 face palettes and a superb double ended brush to go with them.


And now we come to collaborator, blogger and youtube beauty guru Caroline Hirons.  With Pixi Beauty, Caroline created the genius Double Cleanse, (3.36 oz, $24).

If you watch or read her channel, you'll recognize that Caroline is nothing short of brilliant.  She's intelligent and knowledgeable and a true treasure trove of information about everything beauty.  She has completely earned her unofficial title of skincare guru.  Ms. Hirons has long been an advocate of double cleansing and it's just appropriate that the Double Cleanse is her Pixi baby.

What is double cleansing?  It's the idea which comes to us initially from K skincare practices of cleansing by removing makeup and daily grime first with an oil or balm.  After the oil or balm is rinsed off,  a nourishing moisturizing cream is used to remove the balm remnants and any leftover  oiliness or film and complete the cleansing of the skin.  You face will never be cleaner than with a double cleansing system.

Can you just use the oil to take off your makeup?  Sure, but if you've done that, you'll recognize the need to cleanse the balm remnants from the face and the cleansing cream does just that.  Afterward, your skin feels nourished rather than stripped and is completely clear of all makeup.  You'll see that the brilliance of the packaging makes this really easy to do, with the cleansing balm on one side and the cleansing cream on the other.  Plus, there is an inner lid to keep everything nice, pretty and seperate.

For me, this is the perfect product delivery.  I've only double cleansed about 1/3rd of the time prior to receiving this package.  It was one more step and one more product that I had to get out so I often would hurry through my cleansing steps.  And leaving two different cleansers on the vanity to be able to double cleanse took up a lot of room.  This product makes my life easier, having both forms of cleansing available with the simple lifting of just one lid.

It's a big jar so it will last awhile.  It is bigger than the palm of my big ol' hand.

I'm thinking of getting a couple as back ups because I can't imaging what I'll do when it's gone.  I'm really hoping Pixi makes this a permanent item in their skincare products.  My favorites are pictured below, which I've talked about on youtube, Instagram and my snapchat quite a bit.

The Double Cleanse is full of anti-aging ingredients that I'm really excited about and no nasty parabens or fragrances.  Here are the ingredients in both sides of the Double Cleanse:

Solid Cleansing Oil INGREDIENTS: Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, PEG-8 Isostearate, Polyethylene, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylgylcerin, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil. Cleansing Cream INGREDIENTS: Water/Aqua/Eau, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Dipropylene Glycol, Sorbitan Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 80, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, PEG-100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-40 Stearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Arginine, Carbomer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbic Acid, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Maltodextrin, Butylene Glycol, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, sh-Decapeptide-7, sh-Octapeptide-4, sh-Oligopeptide-9. 2 x 50ml / 1.69 fl.oz

I'll say it again that I really hope this item becomes permanent.  Caroline Hirons is a skincare genius and I just love the ease of use of this double cleansing system.  I find it easy to keep each side seperate and my face has never been cleaner.  You can purchase Pixi Beauty items on their website or boutiques and also at Target.   Learn more about the brand by following their blog and across social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and youtube.

Now I'd like to ask if you Double Cleanse.  Which is your favorite item of the Pixi Pretties collaborations?
