Dr. Althea Skin Balancing UV Essence Review | Acne Prone Skin

Glow Recipe | Watermelon Glow Ultra Fine Mist | Is it worth it?

I am still utterly obsessed with watermelon and of course when Glow Recipe launched the 'fog mist' it was a must-try on my list. I have been using this since October and while the weather was still a touch warm this was my summer staple and winter saviour.
