If, as I did, you mourned the loss of Pixi Beauty when Target left Canada last year, happy news: Pixi will officially be back in January 2017, at Shoppers Drug Mart. *jumpy claps*
In fact, Shoppers will carry 80 skus from the brand. Yes, that means Skin Treats, which includes cult-favourite Glow Tonic (from $20 CAD) as well as a gentle Glow Mud Cleanser ($24 CAD), H20 Skindrink ($30 CAD), Glowtion Day Dew ($30 CAD), Beauty Sleep Cream ($34 CAD), Hydrating Milky Mist ($20 CAD) and Rose Oil Blend ($34 CAD).
As well, in January Pixi is launching a gentle Peel & Polish exfoliant with lactic acid, and a Vitamin Wakeup Mist of orange blossom water with citrus extracts, lavender and arginine.
New makeup includes Pixi Book of Beauty Contour Creator ($34 CAD) and nine pretty Mattelustre Lipsticks ($16 CAD each).
Oh happy day, right?? Now I can use my last tube of Pixi H20 Skintint ($34 CAD), and my last Pixi Natural Brow Duo pencil and sheer gel in soft black ($22 CAD and perfect for anyone like me who needs a cool dark brunette shade).
My Pixi Lip Blush pH-sensitive lip colour can go back into my purse, along with one or both of my Pixi Sheer Cheek Gels ($24 CAD each). And I can get into my last bottle of Pixi Glow Tonic, the 5% glycolic-acid toner that took me several Stateside Target visits to acquire (curse that damn empty-shelves "policy").
That Pixi is going in to Shoppers Drug Mart is excellent news – it should make the line more accessible than it was via Target Canada's distribution, right? And it's going into all Shoppers locations, apparently, and should become available on beautyboutique.ca. #flymoneyfly
By the way, if you're looking for ways to speed up your beauty routine without sacrificing results, Pixi's founder Petra Strand has some excellent tips here.
How well do you know Pixi? Did you get to know it via cross-border trips to Target USA? Or pick anything up when Target was in Canada? Or are you a Pixi newbie awaiting its Shoppers Drug Mart arrival so you can try something?
