I wear this sunscreen everyday. It works on a bare face or over any makeup that I might be wearing. Sunscreen is really the most important beauty product ever. Trust me.
If Tehya or I wear any makeup, it's this. We have been using it since we were really little and we will continue to use it forever, it's our little makeup secret. Well, I guess it's not so secret anymore...
I am obsessed with my bangs, they're my life force. I use a blowdryer every morning and I definitely wouldn't forget to bring one to a desert island. This cute one folds up so it can travel easily with you!
These are just the best things I own. They're in my purse, in my backpack, in Tehya's car, all over our house. My friends steal them from me, I order them in bulk. For oily skin, they're amazing. Enough said.
