The Oil Cleansing Method: How To Get Truly Clean Skin

Hi there, my Lovelies!

Have you ever thought that getting truly clean, clear, glowing skin is something only other people get to experience? With all of the ads in beauty magazines and even here on the internet, having great skin seems like a myth.

Open Letter to the Cosmetics Industry: Go Natural!

Dear Big Beauty,

I can remember the day I purchased my very first makeup products.  I went to my local drugstore and purchased a Covergirl blush, foundation, and pressed powder, Maybelline Mascara, and L’Oreal Lipstick.  I was so excited to put them on.  I felt so pretty and glamorous.  I also remember the day I broke up with these brands and a few others.
