The second ingredient on the list is glycerin, and my skin loves it, not to mention all the oils.
It has a
So today I want to show you my two newest loves, both were gifts from my friends which is very sweet of them. One was brought to me from Canada, and the other one from the USA.
I used this one mostly during the winter, as it is very nourishing and quite thick formula-wise (check out all the butters and oils in the ingredients list). I honestly think this is one of the
