  • YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush

    Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss & Blush

    March 15, 2017

    Clarins Hydra-Essentiel

    February 27, 2017

    My relationship with Clarins’ skincare has been a bit of an on-and-off affair these last few years as my skin proved too sensitive for a couple of their products/treatments. So I was trepidatious about trying the…
