Pixi Rose Oil Blend for Oily Skin?
I hear how amazing skin oils are ALL THE TIME, but my skin is usually not on board with this well-meaning advice. Supposedly, keeping your skin stripped of oils not only causes dehydration, but also signals your body to produce MORE oil, which leads to even oilier skin – and more acne. I have tried many different skin oils, but only a few seem to work with my skin type. I think the type of oil is very important – some oils feel heavy and make my skin feel greasy. But others feel nourishing and light.
Pixi Beauty Rose Oil Blend falls into the “oils I actually love” category. The oil is a blend of sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed, and rose geranium. Even though I am usually scared to put my oil on my already oily face, I gave this one a try. Why did I bother? The VERY FIRST My Beauty Bunny review that I ever wrote (April 13, 2009!) was about a rose hip seed oil blend from Mountain Rose Herbs. I remember loving rose hip seed oil – even seven years ago, before I had tried and tested a million and one different skincare products. I had oily skin and acne then too, but I remember feeling that it really helped to heal my skin. So I decided to give Pixi a shot!
Surprisingly, I loved it! I put a few drops on my fingertips, and rubbed it onto my skin. It spread easily and absorbed quickly – without leaving a greasy feel. Right after applying – AND the morning after, I noticed it made my skin feel soft, while calming the angry breakouts. My skin tone looked more even – it seemed to calm the inflammation. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and while I can’t say my acne is gone (it’s hormonal – and I may have to take medication to get it to chill), my skin looks much calmer, my breakouts are healing faster (which is huge!), and my skin looks less dehydrated (fewer lines – especially around the eyes). Plus it smells amazing and the packaging is to die for. I’m sold.
I’ve also read reviews from people with dry skin who love the oil (which is kind of a no-brainer really). I think the impressive part is that this girl with OILY skin loves it so much! It’s $24 and you can find it at PixiBeauty.com or Target stores. No matter what skin type you have, this could make a huge difference in givng you that glow.
