Homemade Lime and cucumber astringent and bleach

"Forget costly cosmetics. Ignore tall claims from cosmetic manufacturers. Overlook brand names, advertising gimmicks, model lure...atleast temporarily. This will cost you a penny or two compared to the hundreds of dollars to buy store bought stuff! What's more - This isn't just for women. Go ahead men, give this a try! Enjoy!"

  1. I love this stuff, my face looks so much better since I began using this, thank you so much for posting it! The only thing I did was omit the water, and I store it in the refrigerator.

Worked part time as a Telemarketer in Oman in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. <br /> <br />2. Worked as a Certified Professional Tarotist (Tarot Card Reader) and done accurate predicitions for many people from different parts of the world, most memorable of which is the reading I did for my college Law lecturer and it came true. <br /> <br />3. Written nearly 1000 poems several of which have been published in leading newspapers, ezines and magazines both in Oman and India. <br /> <br />4.
