Gemini, this month your business success will depend upon great partnerships and in the area of romance, a joint effort will lead to happiness and fulfillment. In other words, for the generally communicative Gemini, this is the month for double efforts.

The rich cream encourages cell turnover, lightens dark spots over time, and increases the skin’s hydration level so it’s as soft as a baby’s tush.
