Roses are red
Violets are blue
I’m so happy

IT ALL TAKES TIME
As I have mentioned before, there are no miracles – I am really sorry to be that blunt. Of course, lotions can improve the skin hydration and smoothness. But there is no way that some product for everyday use will burn excess fat or remove other imperfections completely just by itself. Just like no cosmetic will bring effects when applied on an unpurified skin.
