So let’s talk skincare. Do you like products made or sourced from mineral-rich mud? I do! When it comes to deep-cleansing the pores and getting rid of toxins, mud masks or cleansers take the centerstage for me. I had the opportunity to try couple of products from Pixi, the Glow Mud Cleanser and Glow Mud Mask, scroll further for the scoop!
Made with 5% glycolic acid and aloe vera, Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser ($18, 135ml/ 4/57 fl oz) is one of the gentlest exfoliant I have tried. There is no grit to it yet it has the ability to remove dead skin cells. The scent reminds me of sandalwood, it’s not overwhelming but needs to be mentioned if you are sensitive to scents and whatnot. I like how my skin feels post-washing, taut and radiant.

With aloe vera, ginseng and mineral-rich mud, Pixi Glow Mud Mask ($22, 30ml/ 1.01 fl oz) sounds like the perfect recipe to combat dull, congested and fatigued skin. 15 minutes facial = 15 minutes of uninterrupted bliss, like literally. If you know me, I do find time for little things like these so yeah, it’s safe to say that I do facial masking at least three times a week. This particular mask feels very refreshing on my face. It dries quite hard just like any mud mask but it’s not irritating to the skin, at least based from my experience.
