Pixi Botanical Collagen Collection

I’m familiar with Pixi skincare and reach for so many of their skin treats most days during my morning and evening skincare routines. I’ve recently been testing out their Botanical Collagen Collection and thought I’d let you know my thoughts.

Pixi was created over 20 years ago in their first flagship store in Soho, London. They now have a worldwide cult following and are hailed for their skin-friendly products.

As always, Pixi are cruelty free and always filled with skin-loving ingredients.

The Botanical Collagen Eye Serum I’ve been using in the evening before bed and also wearing underneath makeup during the day. I actually felt that it worked well as a primer for the under eyes. It’s lightweight and isn’t silicone feeling, the way some eye serums can feel.

The packaging is interesting because the applicator is clear and almost looks like it can be used to encourage the product into the skin. It also works to dot the serum evenly around the eyes, without dispensing too much product. 

There are some hard working ingredients in there, to brighten and hydrate the under eyes. Hyaluronic acid hydrates but also firms, Adenosine soothes and Acacia Collagen works to rejuvenate. 

Once a week I’ll incorporate a face mask into my routine, dependent on my skin needs. If it’s near my time of the month I reach for something anti-inflammatory because that’s when I tend to get hormonal breakouts. Generally, I’ll reach for a hydrating mask. 

The Volume Sheet Masks contain Botancial Collagen to boost elasticity, Hyaluronic acid and Peptides to firm the skin. These are pleasant, not irritating and leave my skin visibly smoother. My skin is visibly radiant after use, I’ll definitely be purchasing these to ensure they’re always on standby. 

When I first picked up the Botanical Collagen Lipgloss I was expecting a tinted gloss, so I was pleasantly surprised when it was actually a clear gloss. The texture is more like a lip balm, more thick and silky instead of sticky like a standard gloss. My lips feel plump and have a fuller look when I’ve applied this. It’s not uncomfortable to wear at all.

This also contains Peptides and Acacia Collagen, but also Vitamin E to nourish the lips. 

I was interested to see how the Botanical Collagen Tonic compared to the iconic Glow Tonic. I’m a big fan of the Glow Tonic and have used it daily for many years, my skin really is visibly different in terms of texture if I miss using it for a day or so. 

I used the Botanical Collagen Tonic morning and evening on a cotton pad, noticing my skin was noticeably brighter after around a week of continued use. During the winter months my skin looks lack-lustre and in need of a boost. The scent is subtle and not overly fragrant, perhaps the coconut water is what I can smell.  

I enjoy this toner particularly in the morning and it made a nice change to the Glow Tonic. My skin definitely feels hydrated after use and more radiant. I’d definitely repurchase this if I wanted to change up my routine a little. As I’m now into my 30s, I want to imbed collagen wherever I can. 

Do you recommend trying anything else from the Botanical Collagen range?
