Indeed Laboratories is a skincare brand I have heard about but never tried until recently.

Beauty Products Worth The Hype

I will be honest and admit my makeup collection is too big for what I need so I don't hit pan on products quickly. There are some I do it pan on over and over because I just can't stop using them.

It isn't often I change up my hair care routine as my hair is so hard to deal with and most products don't work on it. When I heard about the Ogario Styling Mist I was intrigued as it claims to add volume, improve strength and shine. It contains lemon zest and oats too but does it actually work?
