Tuesday Reviews-day: Pixi H2O Skin Tint

Happy Tuesday, Leslie here!

Because I’ve been focusing so much of my time and energy into skincare (and it has really been paying off!) I have been looking for more sheer coverage foundations/bb creams/ tinted products. I don’t want to cover all this hard work and progress!

I decided to pick up the H2O SkinTint by Pixi, available at Target. Let’s see what I thought about it!


**A note about my skin: I have sensitive, oily-to-normal skin with concerns of visible pores and length of wear.

The Product:

Pixi H2O SkinTint, in the shade 02/Nude. $24 at Target. There are only three shades in the range, and this one is the middle one – and it is very yellow undertoned. It comes in a very convenient pump, so that’s always a plus!

The Claims:

Innovative complexion-enhancing gel tint for a smooth, fresh faced look all day. Cooling & refreshing formula gives a flawless finish to skin that feels much lighter & more breathe-able than a traditional foundation. Hydrating, long-lasting & water-resistant. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin. 

The Application:

This gel was very cool and refreshing going on! I loved the way it felt like it melted into my skin. I tried a couple different application methods, but it worked best applied with the fingers- which is not my favorite.

As you can see below, it provides very little coverage, but a little goes a long way!

The Wear:

This didn’t last me a normal work day (I typically leave my leave on for around 10 hours during the week.) I can’t really tell if it is water resistant like it claims. But I would give it a solid 5-6 hours before it started to fade or move around. It gave a matte finish, but definitely hydrated and formed into more of a dewy finish later on. I would say this is one of those ‘all-in-one’, skip your moisturizer dealios.

The Verdict:

This tinted gel was very cooling and refreshing going on. It evened out the areas of my face that needed a bit of tint- albeit too yellow. This product truly is a tinted moisturizer, and for someone who hoards skincare as much as I do, I kind of already have moisturizers I like to use. But if you are looking for a no nonsense, one step routine- maybe add a touch of concealer- then you would LOVE this! That with the cooling effect would make it a great product for after a little too much sun (which is probably in the months now leaving us)

Anyone with, I’d say, combination/oily to dry skin types that are looking for a light coverage option would get along with this! (if you can find a shade that matches you…)

TLDR: It’s aight.
