I have a thing for roses. I can’t get enough of roses, I put rose jam on my toast, I put rose essence on my face, yada yada. When I saw Rose Caviar Essence I had to have it. I’ve become a Pixi Skintreats convert, so hopes were high for this… essence? Booster? Not totally sure how to define it. I mean, it says it’s an essence, but it’s much thicker, more like an aloe vera gel in terms of texture. Suspended in the gel is a bunch of little…cute… orange… blobs? These are plant oils, this is where the roses live.
It’s such a satisfying product to use, smushing those little beads of oils into your face. I use this after cleansing and toning, just like a traditional essence, and I find this melts into the skin very quickly. Pixi Rose Caviar Essence acts as an extra layer of hydration before I add my serum, helping said serum sink in smoothly. It’s very pleasant to use, I use a chickpea-sized blob that I massage into my face with upward strokes. The only downside to this is that it runs out quickly!
I was a little afraid that this would be super essential oil-y, and smell really strong, but it’s not like that at all. The smell is like a rose bush after the rain (I’m a poet!), clean and dewy and refreshing.
