But the effervescent vibe and radiant glow about the owner of the loveforskincare website is actually… 45 this year. With kids! While you may expect Leanne’s constant travelling, motherhood, and creatively putting together gorgeous flatlays for her amazing Instagram page to take a toll on the skin – it hasn’t. And it’s probably because she’s got all the best beauty buys (that go beyond her “love for skin care”), beauty tips, and a positive attitude to keep her forever flawless.
