Review: Patchology Poshpeel Pedi Cure Foot Mask

I often find that I will review products on my Instagram channel or I will review products here on my blog. For whatever reason, I seem to forget to review products on both platforms. I need to be better and I will try very hard because I know there is a handful few of my readers who don't have an Instagram account. Last week, I had the privilege of testing the PoshPeel Pedi Cure Exfoliating Foot Mask from Patchology that was sent complimentary for review purposes. thing you might now know about me is that I have quirky phobias! One of my biggest phobias is that I hate feet. Feet are nasty and disgusting and it takes a lot for me to review a product that has anything to do with feet. I went into testing out this product knowing, in the back of my head, that this was just another foot peeling masks that over promises but under delivers. In the end, I am still shocked as hell that I am posting a review about my experience and...wait for it....I am posting pictures of my feet! If you want to read more about my experience, just keep reading.

What is it?
This is an exfoliating treatment to dissolve dead skin, exfoliate rough patches and brighten feet. 

The Claim:
The PoshPeel Pedi Cure claims to polish to perfection with this treatment that gently exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It promised to leave your feet feeling smooth and radiant. 



Review: Swanicoco Fermentation Care Line, a complete review

It has taken what seems like forever but I have finally tested all the products in the Swanicoco Fermentation line. I am excited to share my thoughts on these products and how they worked on my skin type. On a side note, I do not feel I can write an honest and thorough review until I have tried a product for at least a few months, if not longer depending on the type of product. I just feel like I wouldn't be giving you, my readers a fair review if I only try a product a few times. I always want to remain completely genuine and because of that, my reviews may take longer to post then other bloggers. I would also like to mention that this line was so very graciously sent to me by Swanicoco.

Shop Review: Althea Korea

Since the departure of a very popular, online Korean beauty retailer, many people in the Asian Beauty Community have been exploring other options on where to purchase products. My goal for this post is to help people purchase Korean beauty products from relievable, and trustworthy sellers. Althea recently expanded their shipping service and is now offering free international shipping on all orders above $50.  When I was approached by Althea to help spread this exciting expansion, I was thrilled to not only discover that they offered free international shipping, they also guarantee their products authenticity plus a 30 day unconditional return policy. I was thrilled when Althea offered me free points to use toward a purchase to test out the shop. I couldn't order fast enough! Below is my review on my experience with Althea.


Review: Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask Pack

I do not often get excited over a sheet mask but after I tested the Swanicoco 2GF Bio Mix Mask, I knew I had to write a full review. Swanicoco has quickly become one of my favorite skin care brands because they make extremely effective and well formulated products that show visible results. This hydrogel sheet mask is no exception, hence the need for a full blog post review.

The brand began creating fermented soaps and has grown into a full range brand including both skin care and makeup. They believe in naturally derived ingredients, excluding chemically or artificially based ingredients.
