Pixi Dream-y Mist

I love a good facial mist and I really love a good pillow spray, so when Pixi released a product that combines the two, I was always going to buy it. Pixi Dream-y Mist is designed to gently hydrate and seal in your night routine, while getting you in the mood to snooze. The light lavender and chamomile scent means it can also be used as a pillow or room spray. Perfect.

The multi-purpose mist contains plenty of oils and extracts that are both beneficial to the skin and have aromatherapeutic properties.
The mist contains Jasmine, Lavender, Chamomile, Roman Chamomile, Rosa Centifolia, Korean Dandelion and Evening Primrose extract along with Bitter Orange and Geranium oils, that combine to soothe the senses and help you relax.
Dream-y feels light and fresh on the skin, with no oiliness, despite the various oils in the formula.
Humectant Panthenol and Sodium Hyaluronate help the skin retain moisture and antioxidant Vitamin C and Vitamin E are also in the mix.

Multifunctional uses aside, the addition of Melatonin is what really drew me to this product. I know that Melatonin is a hormone we naturally produce in our brains to regulate our sleep cycles and that there is a synthetic version that many people take by mouth to help with jetlag and sleeping problems. But I'd never actually heard of it as a topical ingredient until now. It turns out that it may just be the next big thing in skincare, with brands adding it to products based on findings that when applied topically, it stimulates the skin's natural antioxidant enzymes, defending against free radicals from UV and pollution.
In terms of whether applying Melatonin to the skin has any effect on feeling sleepy, there seem to have been a few studies with varying results so there's not really any conclusive evidence to say that it has any effect. I still think it's a nice touch though to be honest.

I'd describe the scent of Pixi Dream-y Mist as that sort of typical sleep spray smell, but it's not massively strong or overwhelming. The scent doesn't seem to linger on my face or my bedding for long, but it is proving to be a very pleasant little ritual immediately before gettingt tucked in. A liberal misting over my face after my regular skincare and a few sprays on my pillow and I'm ready for bed.
At the moment in the UK Pixi Dream-y Mist is exclusively available at Pixi and Cult Beauty
