Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Jelly Review

Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron Moisture Jelly. This Moisture Jelly comes in a pump type dispenser and the company tell you to use a pea sized amount, the pump dispenses the perfect amount of clear jelly, almost no perfume so nothing to make your eyes water, I was surprised by this moisturiser at first as it's a new one for me to use a Jelly and not a cream, it sinks almost straight in and really does provide a lovely base for make up. I think I may be convinced now having used it w… Read more

OK, now I have your attention with the title of this post, I need to start by saying I don't have any miraculous remedies in this blog, I just wanted to talk about the things we see as the years cheating us.
