At BeautyBets.com, we believe that reviews should be candid, news should be fresh, and blogs should be written with honesty and wit. The only thing we dig more than pretty packaging and products that actually deliver is sharing them with our readers. When we’re not blogging, you’ll find us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram or “working” at some undisclosed spa. To contact Beauty Bets, click here.
