Highlights from Our 2015 Beauty Bash

Posted on Mar. 27, 2015

Posted on Mar. 16, 2015

Lots of products are marketed to do amazing things, and here's one that actually delivers. Mederma isn't new or sexy (it's meant to heal scars), however it is pretty powerful. The other day we had a run-in with our curling iron that left us with a small burn on our forearm.
