Holiday time … again! This week I am going to show you as many of the amazing holiday releases as I can, and nothing excites me more than a colourful box of goodies from one of my all-time favourite brands, Benefit Cosmetics.

Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they?
