Pixi Hydrotint Duo with SPF 20

Pixi Beauty @ Makeup Savvy
This is a multi-tasking wonder that I really had never heard of until it landed on my doormat courtesy of my boyfriend - again! It must be my lucky week.

I already own afew pieces by Pixi which I really like but this is totally different from anything I have tried. This is a sunscreen, day cream, tinted moisturizer, lip and cheek tint. Sounds like a perfect summer must-have!

The Hydrotint Duo is available at Pixi @ Asos for £25.50...however if you need the darkest shade No.5 then there are afew websites that you can purchase it for £4.99!


The Hydrotint is available in 5 shades - the shade above is No.3 Revitalize which I would say is a little dark for my own skintone however with a fake tan in summer this would probably be my ideal shade. As you can see the tube has two parts to it. The main part being the tinted moisturizer and the lid being the dome shaped lip/cheek tint.

The tinted moisturizer did look very yellow based in the tube but once rubbed into the skin it really did even out my skintone and alot of the redness. The tint is also oil-free which is great for summer and is also water resistant. So it should basically last all day.


The lip & cheek tint is a domed cream tint that applies quite evenly but does need a certain amount of blending with the fingertips for it too look natural. However I can't explain how much I love this as a lip tint. It gives a lovely even colour and the pigment really picks the lips up making them look healthy and fuller.

Here are the available shades -

No. 1 Renew*- Suitable for ivory/pale skin .Yellow base to neutralize redness.
Lip & Cheek tint in Sheer Red Flush.

No. 2 Refresh - Suitable for a medium to cream skintones with a peachy undertone to add warmth.
Lip & Cheek tint in Sheer Bitten Wine.

No.3 Revitalize* - Suitable for a medium warm skin tone. Yellow based to neutralize sallowness. Lip & Cheek tint in Sheer Rosy-Nude.

No.4 Revive - Suitable for a warm skin tone.Peachy based to add warmth.
Lip & Cheek tint in Natural Rose.

No.5 Rejuvenate - Suitable for tanned skin, with a peachy brown base to perk up tanned skin.
Lip & Cheek tint in Natural Brick.

*Personally shades 1 & 3 look the best for paler skin tones with redness.



Overall this is a really nice product (with lovely packaging) to have and I know I will really get some use out of it in summer. I love that it is SPF 20 and oil-free making it perfect for my fair oily/combination skin.

This product could literally be used with mascara and concealer for a really quick face - I think this is definitely going to be part of my lazy Sunday routine.

I have been meaning to buy Pixi's other similar product, Illuminating Tint and Conceal, for a while now. The tube looks the same as yours, but instead of the liptint it's got concealer in the domed lid...

... and now you made me want this one too ;)
