Some of my favs are featured here!
Need a splash of refreshing rose before the guests arrive? The Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner from Thayers is the best when you need a little rejuvenation! Just apply a bit to a cotton swab and apply anywhere on your body for a fresh and fabulous feeling! (Might be good to keep a stash in your guest bathroom, to re-apply throughout the night!)
