Review: Hask Dry Shampoo

Hello, hello. I'm back with another review! I normally don't like to publish the same type of post twice in a row, but since I was away in Tahoe last week (catch up on my shenanigans on Instagram), my posting schedule did not go as planned. C'est la vie... Anyhow, if you recall, I previously …

Review: Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer
