I don’t have the entire line from Sens8ate Skincare, but I own their Glow Face Serum; I use it at night before going to sleep, then remove it in the morning. It works great for my dark spots. Highly recommend this product. I’m definitely getting the whole line for optimal results.
I was on the ARRAN website the other day looking into their gift sets; the Body care gifts are beautiful. Valentine’s day is close; I’m getting my sister something from their Calm collection with Lavender and Chamomile; my sister loves these scents. I’m sure she will treasure my gift. Thank you for the article; I love your blog.
I have been drinking sparkling water for quite some time. I’ve never heard of Jamu Wild Water before. I appreciate that it contains plant fiber and good bacteria, which will boost our health and the body’s immune system. I hope they have good taste. I’m certainly ordering them; I will leave an update on these drinks soon. Have a great day.
I ordered the Rosemary Big Cup bra at Anita & Rosa Faia store. It is so comfortable, romantic, and beautiful. I highly recommend their plus size bras, they fit flawlessly, and the cup size is perfect. Everything is covered in front and on the sides and looks sexy on me.
I was suffering from an itchy, dry scalp my entire life. I’ve tried many treatments, but nothing seemed to work. I came across your post and saw the Scalp Cleanser from FFØR Haircare. I will give it a try and see how it goes. I love that it is vegan with natural ingredients in it.
I wanted to have laser hair removal treatments for quite a while, but I didn’t have time to plan it. Recently I’ve been thinking of purchasing a laser hair removal at-home kit, but there are numerous options to choose from; I was getting confused and couldn’t pick one. Thank you for mentioning the Lyma Laser Kit. I will look for reviews on this device and try it out as soon as possible.
The Perfect Pores serum is effective. I adore this product so much. My skin has benefited from it a lot. This serum keeps my pores clean, making them look smaller. Because of my sensitive skin, I was concerned that it might dry out my face, but this serum is extremely hydrating. I highly recommend it.
Olverum Firming Body Moisturiser is excellent. Every night after my shower, I moisturize with it; it has made my skin so smooth and has an incredible scent. I strongly advise this cream to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
