That’s merely the tip of the favorite points iceberg y’all. Go to New Orleans.  Now. You’ll most certainly uncover me and Captain Thoughtful there.

I’m a fan of points that multi-task, notably with magnificence merchandise.  If one factor solely does one issue, then I assume it’s lazy and lacks ambition. (I’m having a look at you perfume)

So, as soon as I acquired SkinFare Verdant Therapy Coconut Oil Stick, I gave it a hearty handshake of approval and supplied it a job as my full time must-have magnificence product. And it took the job y’all. It took the job.

I reap the benefits of it….

  • On my lips as a lip balm
  • On my stress elements as aroma treatment

Moreover, it’s $10. And it does all this stuff, for $10. And it’s pure, which is important to me on account of I contemplate in the event you use pure merchandise chipmunks and bluebirds and little one rainbows uncover glad properties. (Not a most popular notion, I’ll admit, nonetheless I really feel it’s catching on)

I’m not getting paid for this, I an identical to it. And it’s essential to favor it too, on account of little one rainbows need properties y’all.
