Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream Review – on mature skin

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I was not paid to write it. Please read disclaimer. The pixi skintreats Rose Ceramide Cream is the one I almost missed. And yes, “The one I almost missed” is a long standing skincare term, same as “The one that got away.” Only less life-changing, less heartbreaking and, usually, less romantic.

Do you really need a moisturizer? The difference between dry and dehydrated skin

I admit, the question above is not one to be easily answered. So if you came here after a quick google search hoping for either a yes or a no, you will leave disappointed.

Can you tell I have little kids and a teacher as mom?     Seriously though, there are many reasons why this…
