Getting old – what a concept right? We finally get to the point in our lives where we are ready to really put ourselves out there and things start going South – literally! I recently noticed that my neck skin has been hanging slightly looser than usual, so I wanted to find a mineral-based beauty product that could give my skin a lift!

I will admit it: I am bad at drinking enough water each day.
