This travel sized gadget is completely made out of silicone. After putting it to the test, I found it was gentle, yet effective and good news – it's available on QVC this Friday, but you can enter now to win one before it launches. Here's the scoop.
Bar Method just celebrated their 16 year anniversary, but I've only been taking class (religiously) for two of them.
