Wish Formula C450 Bubble Peeling Pad #Review #WishFormula

I am all about exfoliation. Good or bad, I love how soft and bright my skin is afterwards. The problem is I tend to focus more on my face than my body. So when Wish Formula sent me a Bubble Peeling Pad for the body along with some Snail Masks to try out, I almost dropped the box as I ran upstairs to the bathroom to try it out.

August Jini Beauty Box Unboxing & Review #jinibeautybox

Jini Beauty is a bi-monthly subscription service that offers Korean beauty products - not just a "one and done" type of subscription box, but an offering of four different boxes for different skin types every other month to ensure you're receiving products that designed to work with your skin.

There have been some recent changes to Jini Beauty, so here's some up-to-date information about Jini Beauty:
When signing up for a Jini Beauty subscription you'll be able to choose between Dry/Mature, Normal/Combination, Oily/Acne, and Sensitive/Troubled skin types. Don't worry if you're unsure what type fits your skin best, because they're easy to understand descriptions by each skin type. You can also change your skin type at any time, if you think another box would fit your skin better later on.

Each box contains 6-8 full size products and/or deluxe samples, 2 sheet masks, and complimentary sample packets.
Pricing starts at $44.95 bi-monthly (coming out to less than $22.50 a month), $129.95 for 3 boxes (6 months) prepaid, or $249.95 for 6 boxes (12 months) prepaid. Shipping is free within the US, and $8 to Canada. Jini Beauty is working on expanding shipping to other countries as well, so keep an eye out!

All subscribers receiving the September/October box will be entered into a big giveaway, so make sure to follow @jinibeautybox on Instagram for upcoming details.

"You Are Loved" Giveaway

Today is National Suicide Prevention Day. Not exactly a celebratory day, but one that I connect with on a very personal level.
Today, I want to cheer up someone's day. I want to give someone a day to pamper themselves, and make them feel good.
