What’s your favorite This Way product?
Definitely the sunscreens. I remember using my best-friend's one on a trip to Mexico, I arrived there with lots of breakouts due ton my hormonal acne. After a few days and I think because of the Zinc that’s in it it was all gone. Also I love the tan that it gives, and I do feel protected.
