My Holy Grail Face Products, Part 1: Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate
What’s Up with my Skin???
I thought it was about time to write a series of blog posts about my everyday foundation routine. I am going to begin with reviews on each of my holy grail face products and then I will do a mini tutorial on how I use the products. I’ve been doing this specific routine now for a couple of months and I really love how my skin looks with it. I usually do not like heavy or full coverage foundations or the cakey look you can sometimes get from using them or using too much. On the other hand I prefer a more natural look. I guess you might call it a no-makeup makeup look.
I would say my skin is normal to combination skin with my T-zone being the oiliest. Also, I have extremely sensitive skin on my face and have to be careful about the products I use on my face to cleanse it, moisturizer it, and create a base for the rest of my makeup. I have had allergic reactions to many products and so I try to be ingredient conscious when choosing which products to use. The allergic reactions that I tend to have are increased acne and rashes. My preference is towards ingredients and products that are more natural. The products also need to come from a cruelty free brand and it’s a plus if they are vegan. I need to avoid gluten and dairy as I have allergic reactions to both of these. Some other ingredients I avoid in my skincare and makeup products are mineral oils, parabans, and phthalates.
My Holy Grail Face Products: Dark Circle Corrector
Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach
I first purchased Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach about 6 months ago. To be honest I hadn’t heard much about it, but I love the other products by Pixi by Petra that I have tried so I thought I would give it a try. This correction concealer is highly pigmented and has a thick consistency. It comes in a small glass jar with 0.10 oz of product. It is a light peach color, which is perfect for color correcting dark circles. This correction concealer instantly erases darkness and softens and blurs lines. You can find this on the Pixi by Petra website and at Target for $12.
In my opinion, Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach is a great product. It does exactly what it claims to do. I love the consistency of it. It’s not too think and not too thin. Out of the color correcting concealers I have used to cover my dark circles, this is my favorite product. You only have to use a very small amount to get the results you want from this product. It blends in so easily and it lasts all day. The shade Brightening Peach is the perfect color for fair to medium skin tones. Pixi by Petra offers one more shade of this product and it is Awakening Apricot. I feel like that color would work well for medium to darker skin tones. I definitely recommend the Correction Concentrate to cover dark under eye circles.
Another positive about this product is that I bought it about 6 months ago and have used it anywhere from 3-7 days a week during the whole 6 months. I am finally starting to see a little bit of the bottom of the jar. This dark circle corrector lasts a long time. It is well worth the $12 and I plan on repurchasing this product once I finally run out of it. I am very glad that I gave the Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach a chance because it has become of my holy grail face products.
