While in the land of jerk, I’d say without a doubt one of the best meals I had was not a jerk chicken, but a similar, but even more savory and spicy, Jamaican Devil’s chicken from a roadside restaurant, Murphy’s West End.
When you read skincare formula directions, they all say, “apply after thoroughly cleansing the face,” and I’m left to figure out what order my serums, oils, creams and moisturizers go in. Don’t worry, I did the leg work for you. Check out what serums, oils and concentrates to apply to age like Benji Button!
