My Mom is all about buying skin care on Amazon these days. She bought a peel (behind my back without consulting me), she bought extractors (for my treatment room-very sweet of her), and I'm sure she bought a rash of things that I have forgotten at the moment. Mom is very generous and shared her … Continue reading Tony Moly Shiny Skin Soap Egg Pore
So I was browsing through the supply catalog at my job the other day in search of new fun things for the spa and I came across a cuticle stone. I was intrigued so when I saw a cuticle stone at my local HEB for $2.00 I thought, why not! So the idea behind the … Continue reading Cuticle Stone

While this product is absent of Vitamin C, it does contain one of my favorite ingredients: Sodium Hyaluronate.
