Lush Mask of Magnaminty Review

Let me add this to the list of things I absolutely love! Before I begin, I’m just going to say that you should get the Mask of Magnaminty immediately. There is a reason that it has 4.6/5 stars and over 700 reviews.

Monday Mornings

Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask Review

You know how some people say that Asians have the best skin? Well I must not be one of those Asians. Being totally honest here, I’ve struggled with acne since the fifth grade. And it wasn’t the “oh no, I woke up with a pimple” type of acne; it was the “my face looks like…
