Lifecell Launch at the London Hotel

Lifecell's new line

I had a blast at the launch of amazing skincare line, Lifecell’s launch of their new retail collection. This event was held at the luxurious Vivienne Westwood penthouse suite of the super swanky London Hotel. First of all, I LOVE Lifecell’s products, especially the All-in-one anti-aging cooling under eye treatment. Even this insomniac blogger swears by it.

Bad Vida! I will say that I really enjoyed the Bai drinks especially the Bolivian black cherry flavor and the […]
