Nothing to Disclose. I first heard about Kristen Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint from a coworker, and I was immediately intrigued.

Love Beauty & Planet Creamy Body Scrub Review

Disclosure: PR Sample, see bottom. I don’t blog about bath and body products much, but the truth is, I’m a junkie, and I’m particularly obsessed with scent! I’m picky about scent, too.
