Do the TONYMOLY Foot Peeling Shoes really work?

By Kimberly

Do the TONYMOLY Foot Peeling Shoes really work? If you dislike seeing feet, exit out of my TONYMOLY Foot Peeling Shoes review immediately. There are other articles on this site you will enjoy more than this one. I’ve also reviewed the Patchology PoshPeel Pedi Cure Intensive Foot Peel Treatment and the Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel. While both of those worked nicely, they are not super affordable. That limits how often I can use them. This comprehensive review has plenty of feet pictures to back up my findings. The bottom of my feet can get rough. I dislike when my heels crack, because I typically like my feet. Whenever I stop using Egyptian Magic for an extended period, they will crack. Since I wanted my feet to peel as much as possible, I gave them a one-month break from Egyptian Magic.

Are Expensive Sheet Masks Really Worth It : Review on When to Splurge and When to Save

Are expensive sheet masks really worth it? How do we know when to splurge and when to save? When it comes to sheet masks, you will not usually notice any long-term benefits from a single application. I’m not referring to the people who can afford to purchase them all the time. This is for those like me who see expensive ones as a luxury that we rarely or never splurge on. I get that the ingredients in the expensive masks typically cost more, so the brands have to charge more to make a profit. Is the benefit from a single expensive mask worth the opportunity cost of investing those beauty dollars elsewhere? Serums can produce long-term effects, so I would typically recommend investing in them and sticking to cheaper masks (unless you can comfortably afford both). Though I only purchase expensive sheet masks when I can get a deal, I wonder if I should stop. In this sheet mask review, I want to go over some of the things I noticed.

Do You Need a Color Switch or Will a Dupe Work as a Dry Brush Cleaner? My Test and Review of Four, including a DIY Dollar Tree Project

By Kimberly

If you are trying to decide whether you want to invest in a dry brush cleaner, Color Switch, or purchase a hair donut instead, I am here to help. Whether your brush collection is small or you have some brushes you love that you use for multiple colors, a dry brush cleaner can help. It is mostly commonly called a color switch, because the most popular one from Sephora and Vera Mona includes that in the title. Just like some will ask for a Kleenex when they want a tissue, some will ask for a color switch when they want a dry brush cleaner. They are also really helpful for people who swatch products using brushes. Let me know below if you want my reasoning for why brush swatching is usually wasteful and unnecessary. A color switch removes powder products from your brushes without any liquid. Yes, you can use a dry brush cleaner on cream products, but it will not remove as much product and will have you washing your dry brush cleaner more often.

Why Do Foaming Body Washes Always Feel So Luxurious?

I live a constant battle between pampering myself and finding the best deal. Finding a balance between the two is my number one goal as a consumer. When I find cheap items that work as well or better than high-end items, I feel a sense of accomplishment. Spending more than necessary is pointless, but I also don’t like to settle. If the cheaper item is not as good as the high-priced item, I will continue to buy the high-priced item when I am in the mood to splurge. How many times have you purchased something expensive only to get disappointed with its performance? On the contrary, how many times have you grabbed something cheaper than what you usually buy only to discover you barely notice a difference between it and your beloved, expensive product? Price is not always king when it comes to getting the best deal. It is the number one reason I never stop experimenting with new products, even when I find something I love. There are so many products that are wonderful in every price range. Duds also exist in every price range, and dollar store items have disappointed me.

Is the $25 Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel Really Worth Purchasing?

YSL BabyDoll Mascara is the Challenge Winner!

Thanks so much to everyone who voted in the Mascara challenge.  I had a lot of fun with this challenge and reading everyone’s reasoning on why I should try which mascara. For people who picked more than 1 mascara, I only counted the first one they mentioned that I had not yet tried. I’ve tallied the votes here and BeautyTalk. The results are YSL Babydoll won with 12 votes followed by Blinc with 8 votes. The other votes came in the following order: Josie Maran got 5, Urban Decay Perversion got 5, Butterfly got 3, Marc Jacobs got 3, Tarte got 3, Estee Lauder got 2, Clinique High Impact got 2, Buxom got 2, Hourglass got 2, Sephora got 1, Hypnose Drama got 1 (already used but kept the vote that was never changed), and Bare Minerals got 1.

A lovely reader gave me an idea to host an impromptu drawing. For the drawing, I assigned a number to the 12 ladies who picked YSL in the order they responded. It seems like a good idea to send my second sample to a home that knows and loves the product.  I also assigned Gwenhwyfar a number, because I put her down for Marc Jacobs for mentioning she loved it. However, I realized she did write YSL first. As I specifically tried to only give the first item mentioned to everyone, it would not have been fair to leave her out. By my caluclations (and remember I only counted you for YSL if it was the first mascara you wrote that I have not yet tried meaning you will not see your name on the list if you mentioned another mascara first).
