Small Batch Beauty Brands You Need to Try
Everywhere we look, small batch beauty brands are taking the manufacturing process into their own hands to ensure the products are fresh, natural and beautiful. These products are not only good for you and the environment, but their packaging is to die for. Here are our favorites.
