Jojoba oil is another essential that seems to be closing in at a close second. From reading the Magic Of Aloe review, it seems as though quite a few of you use it to remove makeup at night.
I’ve been reading up and really trying to educate myself on the different properties. From Bergamont to Vetivert-there’s a whole holistic world out there!
Before I forget! Here’s the ingredients (you have until Friday if you want to do it with us) to add to your grocery store list!
