I have sensitive skin, so finding a product that won't make me break out is super important to me.

I love painting and making pottery, so anything that brings out my artistic side is a win in my book.

I can't get enough of this spray! I bought it this summer, and I'm already running low on it because it's my go-to for makeup or a quick refresher.
