November 2018 Product Empties

Hi Everyone! Here are last month’s product empties: Amika Nourishing Mask – I got this on Amazon, so this is the old packaging. The new one looks pretty much the same (design-wise), but the font is a bit bigger. This mask made my hair smooth and shiny. Repurchase? Maybe. I did really enjoy it, but […]

I […]
