Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser Review

Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser Review
Pixi says their Rose Cream Cleanser is a "Nourishing cream cleanser with mineral rich mud cleanses skin as it helps strengthen & soften skin." This cleanser contains 135ml (4.5 oz) and sells for $18USD/£18GBP/$32AUD. Pixi products are cruelty free, and most, including the Rose Cream Cleanser are vegan friendly. This product was made in the USA.

Rose Cream Cleanser has beautiful (and functional!) packaging. This cleanser comes in a carnation pink squeeze tube with a spring green flip top cap. This pastel color combo gives off a really appealing vintage vibe! Product information and a full ingredient list are printed on the tube in reflective rose gold lettering. My only complaint is that this product's packaging doesn't seem to be recyclable.

I love creamy clay cleansers, so I expected to love Pixi's Rose Cream Cleanser - and I do! This is a soft, airy, almost moussey beige cream that spreads beautifully. I use Rose Cream Cleanser as a morning and second cleanse (it's useless for makeup removal, as clay cleansers tend to be) by massaging it on to dry skin and wiping it away with a warm wet washcloth, followed by a quick splash for good measure. This cleanser doesn't foam or lather, though it does emulsify a touch when it comes in contact with water. Pixi's Rose Cream Cleanser is quite calming and softening, it's rare to find a cleanser that leaves my skin feeling as balanced as this one does.

Pixi's Rose Cream Cleanser has a base of aloe juice, safflower oil, glycerin, and water, thickened up with three types of clarifying clay. Moisturizing avocado oil, squalane, and hyaluronic acid make appearances midway in the formulation. Multiple rose and rose adjacent extracts are strewn throughout the ingredient list. A handful of ingredients that I find (personally) undesirable - lemon, clove, and eucalyptus oils to specify - are included, but right at the very end of the ingredient list. Though artificial fragrance hasn't been added, this cleanser has a light, nuanced scent - it's a botanical rose fragrance with a mild earthy element.

Though my review so far has been glowing, I do have one issue to note. My very first tube of Rose Cream Cleanser, which I purchased when the product was brand new nearly two years ago, had a bit of a contamination issue. I noticed one day, about four to six weeks after opening my tube, that there was a suspicious dark chunk in the dollop I squeezed out. Squeezing out more product, and eventually cutting the tube open, revealed several large chunks of greenish black mold. I contacted Pixi's customer service in regards to the issue, and they apologized and replaced my tube - the interaction was quick and courteous. I believe this to be an isolated incident - I haven't seen anyone else mention a mold issue with this or any other Pixi skincare product.

Pixi's Rose Cream Cleanser is an all around lovely product - one of my favorite from the Skin Treats range. If you enjoy creamy clay cleansers like I do, this is definitely one to try! I've really missed this cleanser since finishing it earlier in the month, and I do hope to repurchase it in the near-ish future.
