PIXI GLOW TONIC

IN A NUTSHELL

This aptly named, award-winning toner brightens, tightens and - you guessed it – leaves skin all aglow. Suitable for all skin types, those with larger pores will see the best results, since the solution gently exfoliates and clarifies.
Shop Glow Tonic

WHAT MAKES IT
Free of oil and alcohol, Pixi Glow Tonic contains glycolic acid, which helps in the removal of dead skin cells, as well as aloe vera to soothe.

THE TIP
To apply, soak cotton pads in the solution and gently swipe across the face. Glycolic acid can make skin more susceptible to sun damage, so be sure to follow with an SPF if using in the daytime.

“Glow Tonic preps the skin beautifully, it hydrates, soothes, giving your skin that famous Pixi glow, as well as improving the texture of your skin. It is gentle enough to use daily as an exfoliating toner that ensures that the rest of your skin care steps perform better and your base looks flawless.”

Petra Strand, Pixi founder

Shop Active Botanical Serum

WHAT MAKES IT
A powerful blend of over 22 nutrient-rich botanicals and essential oils, strategically formulated to restore skin's balance, texture and natural radiance.

THE TIP

“Delivering the most optimal ratios of 60+ of the most skin-beautifying nutrients, Active Botanical Serum transforms even the most sensitive complexions into balanced, radiant and healthy skin."

April Gargiulo, Vintner’s Daughter founder

LAURA MERCIER LOOSE SETTNG POWDER

IN A NUTSHELL

The easiest route to a flawless face, Laura Mercier’s lightweight powder provides a touch of sheer coverage and locks down makeup for all-day wear.  The smooth formation absorbs oil to reduce shine without settling into pores and fine lines.
Shop Loose Setting Powder

WHAT MAKES IT:

THE TIP:
Apply after foundation and concealer but before powder-based makeup for a perfectly set, long-lasting base. Can also be worn alone to add a natural tint to naked skin.

SKIN LAUNDRY SLEEPCYCLE PILLOWCASE

IN A NUTSHELL

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news: your pillowcase is a reproductive playground for bacteria. Fear not though, Skin Laundry’s ingenious Sleep Pillow keeps the bad stuff at bay night after night - promoting clearer skin and a noticeable decrease in breakouts.

LIXIRSKIN VITAMIN C PASTE

IN A NUTSHELL

An innovative, five-15 minute daily mask that helps tackle free radicals, boost collagen, support elastin and regulate melanin for a vibrant, smoothed, even-toned complexion. What’s more, this multi-tasker also provides a level of natural sunscreen protection.
Shop Vitamin C Paste

WHAT MAKES IT:
Vitamin C has multiple benefits for the skin, including evening out irregular pigmentation and boosting collagen production. Most effective in acid form, LIXIRSKIN have combined the molecule with L Ascorbic Acid 10% and create a safe, rinse-off formula.

THE TIP
Massage onto the face with damp fingers, leave on for up to five minutes and then rise off. For less hurried days, you can leave on for up to 15 minutes.

FRANCES PRESCOTT TRI-BALM

IN A NUTSHELL

A powerful multi-tasker, Tri-Balm cleanses, exfoliates and moisturises in one. Expertly blended into a spill-proof, fuss-free formula, this beeswax and oil-based balm effortlessly melts away impurities. It may be the new kid on the skincare block, but it’s hands-down the fastest way to simplify your daily routine. Also makes a mighty fine travel companion.
Shop Tri-Balm

WHAT MAKES IT
Enriched with starflower, oats and beeswax to fight impurities, this substantial, long-lasting balm stick is also packed with exfoliating pumpkin enzymes and ultra-moisturising hyaluronic acid which renew and re-plump.

THE TIP
Apply to face and neck morning and night, gently massaging using upward circular movements. Tri-Balm emulsifies with water, but we like to remove with a muslin cloth for a clean-feeling finish.

"We created our gorgeous Tri-Balm to offer a three-in-one skincare essential that offers convenience and luxury in one step, without compromising on great results."

Whatever your skin type, when it comes to reducing badly-timed breakouts, there really is nothing like it.

ESCENTRIC MOLECULES MOLECULE 01

IN A NUTSHELL

Molecule 01 is made from just one aroma-molecule, the Iso E Super – and it has an incredible effect when worn on the skin. This bestselling perfume has a subtle, velvety-woody note which vanishes and resurfaces throughout the day, creating a deep sense of enticing allure without seeming overt or obvious. There really is nothing quite like it.
Shop Molecule 01

WHAT MAKES IT
Escentric fragrances are created in pairs: first is the Molecule Fragrance, containing nothing but one exceptional aroma-molecule; and second is the Escentric Fragrance, which contains an overdose of the same molecule, underscored by a blend of other perfume notes.

THE TIP
Created to blend with your natural pheromones, this is more of an effect than a scent. Experiment with how many spritzes work for you. .
