Oh So Heavenly Hand Serum

I am not a fan of hand cream, in fact I sort of despise it. Usually when I apply it I immediately want to wash my hands. I just cannot stand the icky sticky feeling. And then in came the Oh So Heavenly Moroccan Argan Oil Nourishing Hand Serum (gosh what a mouthful!). I love… Continue reading Oh So Heavenly Hand Serum
