I've heard ladies complain about the forever Claire Skin care products not working for them. Well, I nearly became one until I tweaked how I use it and since then, it's been a jolly good ride. I started using the Forever Claire products in July 2013 or so. What I've been doing is to using a cleanser first before applying any of the products. Well, I discovered the reason why the product didn't seem to be working well on its own.
When using the cleanser, I'll dab a bit of cotton in it to clean my face. Apparently, it wasn't the cleanser that was doing the work, it was the cotton.

This time, regardless of the short length, I'm surely going for nothing below 12 weeks. The ultimate stretching is 16 weeks so 12 weeks is a good starting point. There are some who advised starting off gradually with 8 weeks but that's what set me back. You get comfortable with the 8 weeks and moving beyond that it's a challenge. Therefore, 1…

Au Naturale Moisture Replenishing Shampoo
All the 3 products had a very creamy semi-light consistency which was perfect and the smell omg! the shampoo, it really smells good, so good i was even reluctant to wash it out...its probably the best smelling product in the trio i got.

Well i wanted t…
