How many times have you strolled into the beauty section to 'just quickly pick up new soap or lotion', but instead waste an hour doing an in depth, side-by-side comparison of 10 'potential' winners. . . only to go home empty-handed from decision fatigue?

A few weeks ago I was fed up. With myself and this blog. Like, I serrrriously almost quit. It just wasn't what I wanted it to be. So I asked you for help. And boy did you deliver! I honestly thought maybe 2-3 people would respond. (my mom obviously being one of them) But! I received WAY more . . .
