Last product in my pixi vitamin review line: the pixi vitamin C lotion. Is it worth your money? Let’s find out. Hi. I’m Doctor Anne. I’m a medical doctor with a passion for skincare that works.

If this is something you’re interested in Please subscribe and ring the notification bell. And today’s review is about the pixi Vitamin C lotion, or, as pixie says: a skin brightening moisture lotion. It is a very light cream, Does not feel like a gel, but like a lightweight cream – oops, and I spilled it! It has lovely sweet citrus scent like all the products of the line, leaves my skin very Hydrated and soft without any tackiness. It also does not leave a glow which is always appreciated on my more combination Oily skin. It’s a moisturizer, So you obviously apply it as last step in your skincare routine before your sunscreen. It could be probably used either day or night, for me It is more of a nighttime product, because it’s richer than what I like to wear in the summer in the daytime. And that is why I’ll probably save it for winter, because I usually use my vitamin C products in the morning to get the most out of the antioxidant effect, and while it doesn’t hurt to Have vitamin C in your routine at night, I think it just best suited for the morning. If you compare that one to the other products from the pixi vitamin C Line, There is not many surprises in terms of ingredients. It contains ascorbic acid as vitamin C pretty high up the ingredient list as well as Ferulic Acid and vitamin E, both Antioxidants of their own, to stabilize the vitamin C. There are citrus essential oils, There are fermented ingredients and some rice extract for brightening, there is Adenosine and Allantoin, two amino acids that supposedly help heal the skin and a few humectants, one of which is lactic acid, which I think works as humectant here because it Changes between working as a humectant and as an exfoliant depending on the pH. I used this one exclusively when I was traveling Sweden in a camper van just to help protect my face from being outside in the sun And in the wind all day, and it did a pretty good job. Did not break me out And even helped with keeping the hyperpigmentation that I get around here, Traces from reckless sunbathing in my youth that usually come up when the Sun is out, at bay. If I were to compare that one to the pixi Vitamin C Caviar Balm Which I have reviewed earlier on, they are not that different in ingredients. That one is said to be a leave on mask, This one is said to be moisturizer, but for me in terms of ingredients there is not much difference other than the combination of emollients and occlusives they use, so I think This one is better suited for normal to oily skin While the pixi vitamin C Caviar Balm is the one that I’d use if my skin was normal to dry. I really don’t think you need both in your routine. Another product that I’ve tried and that is similar in texture is from La Roche Posay Redermic C, which is a vitamin C product, but only contains 5% vitamin C. I have no clue how much vitamin C this one contains but I suppose it’s higher than 5%, because it’s at the front of the ingredients. Could be wrong, could be 5% anyway. But in general 5% is quite low to see an effect of vitamin C on your skin. The La Roche Posay one does not combine it with Ferulic Acid and Vitamin E, but with Madecosside, which comes from Centella Asiatica and supposedly Enhances the effect of vitamin C as well. Both are around the same price, but this one contains more product. So is it worth your money? Well, if you want a vitamin C rich moisturizer, I think yes, it is. For my combination Oily skin, it’s probably best used in the wintertime, normal skin will enjoy it even throughout the summer, and everyone That’s really dry and wants more nourishment I recommend give the pixi Vitamin C Caviar Balm a go and just apply that as your daytime moisturizer. I’m going to link two more videos on the screen that I think you might enjoy And I’m going to see you all very soon with another video. Bye!
