Product Review – Colorescience Crystalescience Lip Serum

I think the last time I bought a tube of lipstick was in high school. With my thin lips, lipsticks have just never looked right. That’s why I’m a big fan of gloss. The sheer color and shine usually makes my lips appear fuller, and definitely more kissable. One of ...

Product Review – Alba Organics Sea Moss Moisturizer SPF 15

Product Review – Olive Shower Gel by The Body Shop

The Body Shop’s Olive Shower Gel is made with olive oil from Italy.  Can I get some hot, crusty Italian bread with that please? It has wonderful lather and just the right amount of scent.  I am one of the few people in this world who doesn’t like those uber-scented ...
