My hands are doing this fascinating thing where they trade off resembling lizard skin and crepe paper.

In Part 1, I lamented the loss of my very favorite (so far) BB cream by Tarte. Well, wonders never cease! I was checking out the updates to Tarte’s vegan collection last week and it’s on there now.
