Diva-DebbiDivaDebbi, our newest Fashion Flash blogger, shares her favorite cleanser from Hada Labo. Debbi says, “I received it in a Glam Media goodie bag. It was so luxe I assumed it would have a price tag to match. It turned out to be both a cheap and cheerful find.” And now, it’s one of her favorites of all time!
