Pampering and Rejuvinating at Home with Indeed Labs Hydraluron, Exfoliator, and Nanoblur

Sponsored I'm not the kind of person who treats herself to a day at the spa. I think I've probably only had about 2 facials in my entire life. (OK maybe I need to work on having OTHER people in my life that treat me to a day at the spa ;P). Anyways, I guess you could say I'm a bit of a DIYer when it comes to pampering treatments. I enjoy relaxing in the comfort of my own home, with my extensive skin care routines, and a nice facial mask. It just isn't practical for me to arrange childcare and travel to treat my skin right, when I

Soap Stories is a Canadian brand with manufacturing locations and stores in both Canada and abroad. They offer handmade soaps, body care products, and gift sets.

Even my husband is in love with the Lemongrass soap. The only thing is with their large, rectangular shape they are difficult suckers to keep a hold of when wet and slippery! The Natural

VICHY Purete Thermale Cleansers

Find Your Perfect Cleanser with Vichy Pureté Thermale
