New Releases || May Favourites

I receive a lot exciting new release products each month, some which I just don't get the chance to share with you guys, as I have so many other posts that I already have planned!

Brand Focus || Vagheggi

It's time for another Brand Focus! In the spotlight today is Vagheggi Phytocosmetics. Vagheggi is an Italy skincare brand that uses completely natural cosmetics and phytocosmetics.

There is a thorough and meticulous selection process, with each ingredient and element chosen with a specific product or need in mind. In other words, a choice of qualitative excellence that refuses standardisation.
