Hello, lovers! It is that time to talk products again. And today I am excited to bring to you a brand that I recently got acquainted with, Lotta Body! Most of you probably are familiar with Lotta Body. Some of you have no clue who they are. I myself didn’t even know they’ve been around for a long time and recently went through a rebranding process. Anyway, their new look is not what we’re here to talk about. Their products line is what I’m excited to go over with you today.
