I just finished these… Well, considering I had bronchitis the whole time I took them and didn’t notice much difference in my skin, I’d say “meh” about HUM Glow Sweet Glow. They were delicious though. Really yummy! And I’d like to think they did maybe a little something? Maybe slightly better skin??? *shrug* Would I […]
