Oral-B Toothbrush review

By Quo Vadis September 16, 2020

By Sebastian Casado, Copy Editor Dental hygiene is something that I take extremely seriously, and I’m sure everyone can agree with me. Having the perfect toothbrush is a significant part of keeping your teeth clean, and there is no better toothbrush than the Oral-B Pro 1000. In the beginning, I was never a fan of electric toothbrushes. I was under the impression that I didn’t need it. I could manage with a regular toothbrush.  However, I went...

Nair Face Cream Removes Hair Quickly and Without Causing Pain

By Luke Lombardi May 6, 2020

Madison Bara One aspect of being a woman that I hate is having to shave. Women need to shave their armpits, legs and any other unusual body parts that have hair because it is what society deems as beautiful or acceptable for women.
