The maximum strength formula contains 10% Benzoyl peroxide which kills bacteria and clears out your pores, leaving you with fresher, clearer skin.
Keep Your Press On Nails On With This Nail Glue

Just one coat will keep your nails on for weeks on end, no matter how rough you are.

You’re Never Going To Want To Take These Claw Clips Off
Ever since claw clips came back into style, I have sworn off ponytails. Claw clips are much cuter and easier on days that you don’t feel like doing your hair. As someone with pretty long, thick hair, I was a bit worried about these not being able to hold my hair up. However, I wear them now pretty much daily, and they do an incredible job of keeping my hair out of my face. They cuteness of them is just an added bonus.
