On one hand, you have some who will blame communication woes or technical glitches on Mercury’s retrograde. On the opposite end, you’ll have those who roll their eyes at the mere thought of planets influencing, say, a computer meltdown.Read More›
Using our Exfoliant is like spending a perfect day at the beach – there’s salt, there’s “sand” (in the form of ground oats and ground almonds), and at the end of the whole experience, you emerge with glowing skin.
