Skyn Iceland Cool Therapy Face Mask

Friday, January 5th, 2007

As I mentioned before, ever since The Beauty Bug got back from Iceland, she’s had a soft spot for all things Icelandic. The trip was magical, and therefore all things relating to the country are as well. So, it only makes sense that the Beauty Bug has high hopes for the skin care line, Skyn [...]

Friday, January 5th, 2007

Looking at the year ahead, the trends emerging seem to be those of metallics and golds. Metallics can be what you make of them – they can be sheer, yet brightening and eye catching at the same time – or they can make you look daring and forward if you choose to use a lot. [...]

With the New Year comes lots of new products to be used and reviewed and The Beauty Bug doesn’t want to waste any time at all. This year, among many other things, The Beauty Bug resolves to not fall asleep early without night cream on this year! Now, on to the review…. Feeling a little [...]
