This week the Lipstick League wants to know: What's your current favourite nighttime moisturizer?
Now that Pixi is back in Canada, I've been getting to know the Skintreats range (which sadly does not include the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse because it's not yet available here). I'm generally not a fan of silicone-heavy K-beauty (or K-beauty-inspired) sleeping masks, but Pixi Skintreats Beauty Sleep Cream ($34 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart and $24 USD at target.com) is making me happy right now.
That's probably because Pixi's Beauty Sleep Cream isn't a sleep mask à la K-beauty. It's really a nicely textured, low-fragrance night cream formulated with glycerin, shea butter and mango butter, among other things (see complete ingredient list at the end of this post). The mornings after I use it, my skin looks even and comfortably hydrated without having felt like it was smothered in silicone.
