Pixi Peel & Polish Review:
After dipping my toe into the world of Pixi Beauty, starting with the cult favourite Pixi Glow Tonic, I became very much interested in trying out more of their products. And the next product that caught my eye was the Pixi Peel & Polish.
Pixi Peel & Polish is a resurfacing concentrate mask, which contains 6% lactic acid, papaya fruit extract and sugar cane extract. It also has tiny granules in it that can act as a gentle physical exfoliator. I’ve stopped using physical exfoliants for a long time, but I was very much interested to incorporate lactic acid into my skincare routine (I have tried glycolic and mandelic acid previously), and this product seems gentle and intriguing enough for me to not to give it a try.
So, do I end up loving this Pixi Peel & Polish, or otherwise? Lets find out.

3. Leave it on for about 2 – 5 minutes to let the enzymes activate.

Pixi Peel & Polish Review:
Pixi Peel & Polish comes in a large, slender pink tube with green twist-on cap. It also comes in a same colour-themed box with gold trimmings. Very chic looking, I must say (and my box-hoarding self is extremely pleased!).
The texture of this mask is peach in colour and has a light lotion consistency with fine granules in it, which can work as a mild physical exfoliator if you wish to do so. It smells somewhat like papaya, which I know a lot of people like it but I personally find it smells a bit plastic-y, if that makes any sense. I’m not crazy about the scent, but I don’t exactly mind it either.
I use this peel 2 – 3 times a week and usually in my night routine. I apply this on clean dry face for about 2 – 5 minutes, wet my fingers, gently massage the tiny granules around (without applying extra pressure) for 30 seconds and wash it off.
I would then follow up with Pixi Glow Tonic. My complexion immediately looks brighter and radiant, and my skin feels softer and smoother!
I absolutely love having this product in my routine. It is not exactly a necessity, but it is such a treat to have this in my routine. I see myself repurchasing this!
On the downside is that this product is a bit pricey. But then again, it comes in a large 80ml tube and when used 2 – 3 times a week, I imagine this could last for quite a while.
I have normal/dry skin and I find this works great with my skin type. I also feel like oily/acne-prone skin would enjoy and benefit from this product as well, but of course always approach with caution and patch test first. I probably would not advice this for sensitive skin.
