The Matte Lipsticks which I still enjoy to bits and the Concealers and Correctors which are essential for any makeup artists kit. LA Girl…

I bought my first bottle of Solal C-Serum almost 2 years ago. I was suffering with really dry, dehydrated skin and one of the ladies in Dischem recommended it. Since the price was within the range I wanted to spend on a serum, I decided to try it out. I used a pea sized amount of the Solal C-Serum over my entire face nightly, waited for it to sink in, then applied my moisturiser. It helped my skin from feeling tight and flaking when I wore foundation. After months of use, I purchased my second bottle. Not long after that, I broke…
