Red in the face? Use Pixi Redness Reducing Primer

    - Advertisement -

    Pixi Redness Reducing Primer is a great face primer that is slightly green tinted and therefore neutralizes red areas of the face. Available for purchase at!

    I have taken before and after pictures with it today and thought to show you now :)


    Difference huh? Look at the close wings!

    My problem area is around the nose where I am both generally red-flamed but also have visible blood vessels. And it's mostly because of the redness that I put on make-up with base make-up that I want to feel nice, even when I could actually be without make-up. My little pimples and the like do not bother me much at all.

    But with this primer, it is only to apply on desired areas (or all over the face) and then you can go completely unmade.

    It is also good even if you are going to put on make-up with opaque make-up, because then you do not need as much foundation and concealer over which is both economical and gives a more natural and sustainable result!


    What is Pixi Redness Reducing Primer?
    A face primer that does not provide coverage, but evens out the skin tone only with the help of green pigments. Green neutralizes red and reduces redness of the skin. Also makes the remaining base makeup last longer.

    Contains, among other things, vitamin E, sunflower oil, aloe vera and safflower oil which together soothe, nourish and moisturize the skin.

    The primer received a 5 out of 5 rating by Daisy Beauty January / February 2015.

    How to use the primer?
    Can be used in different ways, with or without covering makeup over, on only parts of the face or in the whole. Lubricate with clean fingers and massage it into the skin.

    Can you use the primer for preventive purposes if you e.g. easy to blush?
    Yes! Unlike a green concealer (which looks green if it ends up on a skin that is not red), this is more mildly pigmented and will not give the skin a green tone even where it is not red.

    Which is better, Pixi Redness Reducing Primer or Zuii Organic Color Corrective Base Mint?
    I have already had this question a few times and therefore thought to address it now :) Both of these green face primers work in the same way, you can read my post about Zuii's primer in this post.

    The biggest difference is that Zuii's primer is a little more effective, which is good if you e.g. have red blemishes and things that require a little extra to be neutralized. Pixis is therefore better if you e.g. wants to be unmade up too, because you can take quite a lot of it without the skin tone getting cold, which it can be if you take a lot of Zuii. You can use Zuii even if you want to be unmade, but then you have to be more frugal, so I recommend it most for you who have a lot of red and who usually put on make-up with opaque make-up as well.

    It works well under all the foundations I have tested, but I experience that the Pixi H2O Skintint does not go into the skin as well if you have this primer underneath. The result is great, but the Skintinten must be massaged in much more carefully, so it can be good to know if you are considering buying both of them at the same time.


    I let the pictures speak for themselves, the result is natural at the same time as it is effective!

    Two thumbs up :)

    1. I have a little thought and it would be great if you answered :)
      Can you use it on quite oily / oily skin? I have pimples and would like to avoid getting more pimples. Literally afraid to use oily products on the face here ..: S

      By the way, Thank you, thank you and thank you for a great blog !! <3

      • Yes absolutely!! I myself have super oily skin, so I know immediately if a product works or not with just oily skin. There is a difference between oil and oil in products, fine light natural oils go quickly into the skin and only do good. It is heavier oils that do not go in properly that do not work for us. So you do not have to worry about it with this primer and you do not have to exclude oil completely from your daily routine - it's just a matter of not using the wrong oils :)
