EauMG’s December 2017 Empties

December 2017 empties

It was the holidays so I tried so hard to not buy stuff for myself despite everyone tempting me with sales. I did buy Marc Jacobs Lip Gloss in Call Me.

Palmer’s Skin Therapy Cocoa Face Oil Review

Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil

After reading some positive reviews online, I purchased Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil for the face. Palmer’s is one of those budget brands that helped to keep my skin looking good when I was broke.

This Skin Therapy oil is a newer edition to the line. It’s a mix of oils and retinol… Continue reading | 9 Comments
