mood: loving skincare xo HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! xo Here is an update to my Valentine's Day post, because I have now been using a few of these best selling Amazon beauty products for many months.

Currently I'm using my own concoction of: retinol (just during winter to tackle age spots and for exfoliation), peptides, hyaluronic acid or vitamin C or squalane oil.
