Happy New Year! So start off I just want to apologise for the lack of posts lately. The combination of lots of work and travelling home to the land of no internet for Christmas and New Year’s didn’t leave me much time or opportunity to blog. But now I’m back home in Cork and back to normal, so I can get back to regular blogging. Let me know if there’s any post in particular you’d like to see such as reviews or makeup looks.
Now that I have the explanation of my absence out of the way, let’s get onto my first review and post of the year, from a brilliant Irish company. Pixy is a great company, from Cork, that create beautiful and natural body and skincare products. I have raved about them before when I took a look at their bath bombs but this time it’s a skincare product which I was sent for review.
The Rose Cleansing Mud comes in a little tin and is made up of some beautiful natural products. It contains two clays from Morocco including Red Clay, a great natural exfoliant, especially good for oily skin and Rhassoul Clay, clay that contains loads of nutrients and helps to remove all the bad stuff out of your skin. And exfoliate does it! Basically what you do is take a teaspoon amount of the clay, mix with water to make a paste and massage it onto your face. Then simply rinse. But once you rinse you will definitely notice the difference to your skin. I found this removed all my dead skin, leaving it lovely and smooth and left just a lovely glow or radiance to the skin. I really noticed the difference to my skin after using it.
Now, onto the only bad part of this product. The smell. The Rose Cleansing Mud contains Witch Hazel, Kelp, Buttermilk and Vanilla that all help in detoxifying the skin. It also contains rose petals and rose water to leave a subtle hint of rose. However I dislike the smell of both Witch Hazel and rose water. Pixy believe in all natural products, so understandably didn’t want to add any artificial fragrances, which is great for your skin. Now as always with all scents, this is just a personal preference, you might love the smell of it.
So while I don’t like the scent of the product, I’m not going to stop using it, because I think is an amazing product that could do wonders for your skin. The natural glow it seems to leave on my skin is enough of an excuse to keep using it for sure. Rose Cleansing Mud is €9.50 and can be found in selected chemists nationwide or on Pixy’s website here.
So that’s it for my very first post of the year. Have you tried Pixy yet??
Bye for now,
