I did It

I said I wouldn’t do it, but I did. I said I’d use my brain and take things slowly. “You’ve got the rest of your life.” I said. “No need to hurry. Slow and steady. Easy does it.” Yep.

Progress Report

He definitely did not support my hopes of…

Help for wrinkles

Update: See comment after this one. I have found what I feel is a better, less expensive product than this one. This product has helped the appearance of my face, but the one in the comment below is half the price and works better!     This product has really worked for me. I have used it daily for about 6 weeks and I can tell a difference in the…
