ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I am really fuzzy when it comes to moisturizers, so the elf Pure Skin Moisturizer didn’t have it easy convincing me.

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   The Skintegra Melt Milk Cleanser might be called milk, but certainly doesn’t look like one in the bottle. I mean, look at that, what is your first though?

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I know they have been around for a while not, but before testing the Florasis Floral Care Hydrating Dual Lip Oil, I had never used one of the tinted versions that I think became popular five years ago. There isn’t a particular reason for that, I just had so many colored lip products I needed to use some up before I…
