    Ever since Durban has been experiencing cold weathers I have been opting for more moisturizing products. I usually buy all my body products from the drugstore. They are affordable and definitely get the job done. I purchased the Nivea Cocoa Butter body cream a while back and forgot to use it.

    Eden perfumes review

    So I have been a fan of various fragrances but they are quite pricey for those luxurious scents. However, there are numerous companies that make these same scents at affordable prices.  Eden Perfumes makes highly quality generic perfumes at affordable prices. Their perfumes are matched to the originals by expert perfumers in Grasse, France and are not affiliated to the original names and brands. Customers can use their perfume list as a reference to original names when purchasing.  I decided to purchase a fresh scent from Eden Perfumes that was inspired by the famous DKNY be delicious. I don’t have a specific scent that I am attracted to because sometimes…

I purchased the ordinary caffeine solution a while back and haven’t used it religiously until now.  It’s been a month that I have used this product twice a day without fail and decided that I can finally formulate my opinion. I seemed skeptical to try this product for over a month because in the past eye products haven’t really worked for my undereye circles. I think no product will truly help with that but it’s worth a try.  This product contains EGCG and…
