I couldn't have received these products at a better time. With the extremely cold weather and the flu making its rounds at my home, it's left my skin dry, flakey and tight. My usual skin savers weren't doing the trick and my face was starting to look a bit dull. Read more

Here are some pictures from the evening. Enjoy!Â Read more

I was impressed with the sleek packaging and high performance formulas. I decided to give the VS Soft Focus Liquid Foundation SPF 20 ($16 for .8oz at Victoria’s Secret) a try.Â Read more
