Since I travel a fair amount for work and occasionally that travel is international, I have had to put together a makeup travel kit that includes multi-purpose items.

Skincare Saturday – @yeouth Retinol 2.5% Serum

I was recently asked by someone if I had ever tried a Retinol. At that time I hadn’t, but only just a few days later, I was sent an amazing box of skincare goodies from @yeouthskincare and included inside was exactly that – their Retinol 2.5% Serum with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera ($19.95 for 1 ounce at @yeouthskincare – http://bit.ly/2JpJvKm).

Thursday Thoughts – @radsoap Bar Soap Club Subscription Box

Alex has also used it several times, but has had no issues with a drying … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts – @radsoap Bar Soap Club Subscription Box
