Pixi Glow Mist Review

 Pixi calls their classic Glow Mist an "All-over face mist for a glowing, luminous & smooth complexion. Enriched with 21 natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts. Before makeup: hydrates, protects & nourishes. After makeup: sets, adds a dewy finish and protects. Anytime: refreshes makeup, hydrates and adds glow. Paraben free. Not tested on animals." This multi-use facial mist contains 80ml (2.7 fl oz) and retails for $29.95AUD ($15USD). Glow Mist is made in Korea.

Pixi's Glow Mist comes in a cylindrical clear bottle topped with a chunky spring green spritzer. I've heard that Pixi's spray bottles can be sloppy but mine produces a fine and even mist - maybe I just got a good one. I love the convenient size of Glow Mist's bottle - it fits nicely into my little backpack for on the go misting. If I had to choose anything to complain about when it comes to packaging, it'd be the labeling. While Pixi included plenty of product information on Glow Mist's bottle, the golden lettering can be a bit difficult to read against the yellow color of the mist. Otherwise, I'm quite pleased by this product's packaging - which, by the way, is recyclable. 

Originally I had my heart set on picking up Pixi's Vitamin Wakeup Mist, but Caroline Hiron's recent Pixi overview video completely sold me on Glow Mist and I picked it up at David Jones as soon as I could. Two months later, this dual phase facial mist is a staple in both my skincare and makeup routines! Pixi's Glow Mist slots into the "essence/toner" phase of my skincare routine - I spritz it on and pat it in before serums and moisturizers for a little boost of hydration. As much as I like Glow Mist as a skincare product, I prefer it as a setting spray. This oil infused face mist helps meld makeup together and practically erases the appearance of powder on the skin - however I don't think it does anything to improve wear time. Despite it's oil content, Glow Mist is non greasy and quick to sink in, leaving my skin soft and hydrated, with a noticeable luminosity. 
What makes Pixi's Glow Mist such a great hybrid skincare/makeup product is it's rich ingredient list! This facial has a base of water, aloe, olive and argan oils. Nourishing propolis and niacinamide appear high up on the ingredient list, along with hyaluronic acid. A beautiful blend of plant oils, including rosehip, avocado, macadamia, and jojoba oils help seal those beneficial ingredients in while increasing Glow Mist's moisturizing properties. A second blend of essential oils including thyme, clove, tea tree, lavender, and citrus oils make up the remainder of the ingredient list. I'm not typically a proponent of essential oils in skincare, but considering they're in pretty minute concentrations, I'm not too fussed. Glow Mist is fragrance and alcohol free (a rarity among setting sprays/facial mists), and has a lightly herbaceous, barely noticeable scent. 

I love Pixi's Glow Mist! While it feels like a stretch to call it an essential, I do think this multi-use facial mist can fill a lot of roles - hydration booster, setting spray, mid-day pick me. I'm a little more than half way through my bottle, and I definitely want to repurchase it in the future, but first I want to try the rest of Pixi's growing range of mists. If you want a do-it-all facial spray, Glow Mist is a great, reasonably priced pick!
