Another month, more Empties.
In August, I actually expected to empty a lot of skincare but it looks like I have a few more weeks left in many of my bottles. My prediction is that in September I’m going to run out of most of my skincare.
It’s September. My summer no-buy is over. But, I have to confess that I did slip up in August. Hey, I’m human. I bought a
Now that I’m using AHAs during my night time routine, I’m crazy about daily SPF. This isn’t really new for me. I’ve been crazy about SPF for 15 years.
