Not too long ago I was lucky enough to receive a few samples from the American skin care company Rodan+Fields Dermatologists.
A rep, Melissa, had gotten in touch with me and had amazing things to say about their products. When asked for a review, of course I said yes!
To be honest, I’m usually pretty skeptical when someone spouts off so much awesomeness about a product. It’s wrong, but a dark part of me almost wishes the product were bad just to prove them wrong. Nothing is that great, right? [Keep Reading]
You’re feeling pretty good about yourself. You’ve been hitting the gym, you’re all toned up and you’re ready to bare your best in an itty bitty bikini.

My mama loves herself some good anti-aging products.
No really, the woman gets facials, non-surgical facelifts and will try just about any new age-defying cream she can get her hands on.
My mother always had great skin and often received compliments from others because of it. She never had acne or wrinkles, save for a few laugh lines, and her skin remained taut right up until her 50s. [Keep Reading]
