Lily Organics – a tried and true green product review


I recently received two free products from Lily Organics Skin Care: Seven Facial Rejuvenating Oils Treatment and Rejuvenating Enzyme Mask, for the purposes of this review. After two weeks of steady use, here’s the scoop:

Now the problem – my big brother Jack – who, motivated by a particularly chilly New England night, got all cozy in my new bed (see picture below).
