After trying to solve my problems alone with many different products, and also after visiting a dermatologist I have decided that it’s time to take the bit between my teeth.

Welcome to another blog (a chemist’s view)

Being a woman is a beautiful thing. Well, fine, if you are in the middle of your PMS at the moment, and if you struggle with hormones that make you over-sensitive and moody in that case (like myself) then you might not realize it, but it is actually quite awesome thing.
