I have a confession to make.  I am a “Beauty Junkie” who is willing to buy any and every product imaginable in search of THE best beauty products that money can buy.  That makes me the ultimate guinea pig and a dream customer for the beauty industry.  I am in constant pursuit of those miracle products; if they exist, trust I will find them!  No need for you to spend unnecessarily on products that won’t get the job done if I am already doing it.
