Moisturizer Monday – @pixibeauty pHenomenal Gel

In my most recent, as generous as ever, PR package from @pixibeauty, I received, among other things, their pHenomenal Gel ($24 for 1.7 ounces on their website). And, since the weather is finally on the verge of getting warmer here in Minnesota, I normally switch to more gel-based moisturizers anyway because my skin gets more oily, so I was looking forward to testing it out as soon as I laid my eyes on it!

What it claims:

🔘 Soothing gel helps to balance and stabilize skin pH

🔘 Use a coin size amount daily after cleansing and toning or as needed

My experience:

👍🏻 I didn’t read the instructions initially and used more than a coin size (which is fairly vague, so let’s assume they meant a quarter). That was far too much, so a little really does go a long way.

👍🏻👎🏻 Although it’s a little on the pricey side, since it doesn’t require much to get the job done, I would say it’s a fair deal.

👍🏻 It is super hydrating and the hydrated feeling I experience in the morning lasts all day long – which is not something I can say for all moisturizers I’ve used in the past.

👍🏻 I have used this on its own and mixed in with an oil to use as an overnight moisturizer. It takes the hydration level to another level and is now my go-to.

My verdict?

I may have found my new favorite summertime moisturizer! It’s lightweight, but super hydrating – exactly what I need under my full face of makeup as the temperatures rise. If you have a similar skin type as mine (oily/combination), I highly recommend you try this out!

What is your go-to warm weather moisturizer?
