Thesis Beauty is an indie line of natural skincare and body products based in Massachusetts. They sent this rose lover three products to try:
Body Scrub in Rose Vanilla Sorbet
This is a salt scrub in a thick oil and butter base. It claims to be so moisturizing that most people don’t need to follow-up with creams/oils.

That is not the case at all with Colleen Rothschild products. Yes, they have… Continue reading
Sasē Skincare by Fiafini is a line that focuses on “half the steps, twice the results” with multi-purpose skincare products. Overall, the line is highly simplified and currently contains 2 products that are supposed to the job of 7 products.
