Fresh And Feminine Beauty Products For Summer

Fresh And Feminine Beauty Products For Summer-GUESS 1981-TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream-C.O. Bigelow Deluxe Cleanser

Beauty Brite Disclosure

A great perfume, cleanser or face cream is the perfect little luxury that women can treat themselves to as the warmer weather takes over this summer. With all the responsibilities we take on, a little bit of pampering is a great way to take a time out and do a small thing just for us.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

You will usually find me in my typical “uniform” around the house of a ponytail, yoga pants, and a cotton t-shirt. There are meals to cook, jobs to work, rooms to clean, and a never ending pile of laundry to do.
