Skin care

I've used commercial face care products & still use a select few but I prefer face oils, especially in the colder months. The so-called anti-blemish products did nothing for my skin & often made my acne worse. Or gave me rashes. So face oils it is. This is my first haul video, so I'm a little nervous. Watch my mini haul here.

Have you tried any products from this company? If you did, what did you think? Or do you use face oils, in general? If so, which ones?

If you live in a colder climate, this DIY Hair & Body Butter can be a lifesaver. The cold, strong winds and/or constant hand washing can wreak havoc on our hair & skin. Try my recipe out. A little goes a long way. As always use what you have or can access. The measurements are approximate. Adjust the formula to your liking.

Check out the video here & please come back and share how your hair and/skin feels after a few weeks!
