Review: Pixi Rose Flash Balm

I love roses. And I’m kind of obsessed with Pixi skincare – I feel like they were under the radar for a while, and now I covet basically everything they’re making. So when they launched rose skincare this fall, I had to try it out. I already reviewed the Caviar Essence, and now ...
