Your biggest beauty concern: Breakouts, they are my one true nemesis in life.

Skin Care line, TwinLuxe, wants to change the way men shave, cleanse [...]
Short, stumpy and sparse are the first words that come to mind when I think about my lashes. Sadly, I’m not being over dramatic. One morning as I was coating my lashes in mascara (trying to get all the fullness I can get) I decided it was time to try a lash enhancement treatment. With [...]

There is no doubt that nowadays we are much more aware of what we put in and on the outside of our bodies, especially when it comes to skincare during pregnancy. I, myself have never had a little one growing inside of me, but with the recent news that my sister-in-law was pregnant, I wanted [...]
