My Shelfie by Jo Gay
As a beauty online magazine it's only natural that we would be obsessed and passionate about makeup, hair care, body care and skincare. After spending a lot of time trying out various beauty products and treatments as well as poking around other people's makeup bags and quizzing them about their skincare regimes and favourite beauty products we decided that it was time we put the spotlight on ourselves and show you the sort of products we use. Welcome to My Shelfie where once a week each member of brownbeauty will show you all the gems on their bathroom shelf. First up for the Shelfie interrogation is Jo Gay. This is my every day skincare selection. My masks are on a different shelf and my makeup and perfumes are somewhere else.
