Au Revoir, Wrinkles and Dry Skin!

A little over a year ago, I discovered a cool-Parisian-girl beauty secret.  I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical about the best-selling French supplement, Biocyte Hyaluronic Forté,  but Dara at Ayla Beauty assured me that it made a big difference for her personally; she didn’t need a heavy-duty moisturizer anymore.  (Plus, I know she is super-smart and […]
