TIA’M Sebum Drying Black Bubble Pack Review

The TIA’M Sebum Drying Black Bubble Pack is a wash-off clay mask. I am a huge fan of clay masks because I naturally have large pores and visible blackheads.

2017 Favourites: Skincare

As a teenager, I primarily used a makeup remover from Clinique’s Take the Day Off line and a moisturizer…… Continue reading 2017 Favourites: Skincare
