Sometimes things happen in life and catch us off guard. Like being told you need surgery. No one expects that to happen (well, those who do are an entirely different subject).

I came home to a very nice surprise Monday afternoon! I received this fun silver package from Derma e. It’s nice that a company would take the time to say happy holidays. I’m looking forward to trying more of their products.
