Just in case you’re new to the brand, Manuka Doctor is the skincare company that combines both manuka honey and bee venom into their skincare products and it’s making them more and more popular in the process. It’s no secret that I’m having quite the love affair with Manuka Doctor products at the moment to the point where I’ve just bought another four new products to test out and review.

    Magnesium For Skin – Why It’s So Beneficial

    Increasing your intake of magnesium for skin health purposes (and of course body health purposes too) can be a lot more beneficial than you probably realise.

By cheap price, I’m talking less than the average Amazon cheapy serum but what enticed me even more was the fact that it was…
