Big news! PIXI by Petra Glow Tonic is now available for the first time in the U.S. and I couldn’t be more excited. This alcohol-free toner has had a worldwide cult-following for years and after using it for two weeks I can easily see why. My skin looks brighter and tighter…I’m officially hooked!
At the PIXI by Petra Fall 2015 launch I had the pleasure of chatting with the brand’s founder, Petra Strand, when we both needed to give our feet a 5 minute break from the too high heels we were wearing. Strand, a makeup artist with over 20 years of experience, launched PIXI by Petra to give women pure, skin-loving products that help them achieve a naturally radiant “just had a good night’s sleep” finish. The brand’s flagship boutique is in London, and Petra herself is a busy, working, mother of four so she knows how important it is to use products that really deliver on their promises and can be applied quickly and easily.
With PIXI by Petra now available in Target stores and on Target.com, it’s easily accessible to those of us in the US. Here, just some of what you can expect from this brand:
Glow Tonic ($15) — the toner with a cult-following — will give you a more radiant, even-toned complexion. It’s gentle enough for all skin types, alcohol-free and formulated with 5% glycolic acid, aloe vera, ginseng and botanical extracts.
Glow Mist ($15) contains 13 natural oils, propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts to soothe, moisturize and add radiance to your complexion. Spritz it on before applying makeup to hydrate, protect and nourish, after applying makeup to help set makeup and add a dewy finish or use it anytime throughout the day to refresh your look.
Cat Eye Ink ($14) has a foolproof, slanted felt tip applicator that makes it so easy to perfect the feline eye look. You’ll love the highly pigmented, water-resistant, long-wear formula that stays put all day long without smudging, smearing or fading.
Colour Correcting Powder Foundation ($20) is a versatile skincare/makeup hybrid foundation that helps hide imperfections. The light, hydrating formula is rich in vitamins, peptides, aloe vera, super fruits and more. To apply, use a fluffy brush and choose to wear alone for lighter coverage or layer it over your tinted moisturizer or foundation. You can also use a sponge to apply it under the eyes and in other areas you desire more coverage.
