Want to know what’s in Marta’s shower? So many products I love these days, so little time to blog, lol. But here is a sneak peak to my shower and to some of my favorite face cleansers these days. As you can tell it’s very challenging for me to take a shower lately, because I have so many decision to make as soon as I wake up.
