A First Look Into Aqua Mineral’s Salt Room

Aqua Mineral has been one of my favorite skincare brands since I started using their products two years ago, and I’ve been using them ever since. They have brought to the Philippines an extensive range of cosmetic and skincare products, as well as men’s care sets, and even anti-aging products that are beyond incredible.
