T3 Hand Held Shower Filter: What the Water Gave Me

With beauty, it’s important to go back to the basics. For a minute, forget the powerful cleanser, the exfoliant, and the sweet-smelling shampoo. The fundamental in question here is water. It can be hard or soft, but if you’re lucky, it’s right in the middle. I live in an area with super hard water, so … Continue reading T3 Hand Held Shower Filter: What the Water Gave Me

Kneipp Zen with 10 Bath Collection

They’re an affordable brand (though a bit pricier State-Side than overseas), that makes a ton of products including natural herbal bath salts, essential oil … Continue reading Kneipp Zen with 10 Bath Collection
