I really love this month from Yogi Surprise ~ their Jewelry box was horrible this month, but the lifestyle box is fantastic! Love the Cuccio Try Me kit with the balancing oil, Palo Santo Mist Spray is really nice and light, FACIAL SHEET MASK (hahah, I have so many of them, but I still get excited when I get a new one in my boxes) and The Cleansing Power of Parsley surface cleanser ~ can’t wait to try it.
