Christmas Beauty Science

Submitted by Beauty Brains Blog
We all have our favorite memories of the season – Christmas trees, stockings stuffed with gifts, the beauty of a new fallen snow.

Submitted by Beauty Brains Blog
NCFiction needs to know…I have dry curly hair, and the Hydrate line helps make it soft! At 8.5 oz for almost $30 Pureology conditioner is NOT cheap! I’m used to getting conditioner that has three times that for $6! (Aussie Moist.) But my hair was still feeling dry so I am [...]

The Buzz on Burt’s

Submitted by Beauty Brains Blog

Are My Pores
