K-Beauty Review: TONYMOLY Changing U Magic Foot

*spoiler alert - there are photos of feet in this post*



I might have a problem.

Really.

You see, the last time I ordered on Hollar.com - I dumped a TON of K-beauty sheet masks into my basket and then just....bought 'em. Mostly with the intent of doing reviews on all of them, but also because (like most beauty bloggers right now) I'm kind of obsessed with sheet masks.

So when I happened upon a peeling mask for...feet...yeah, feet, I thought to myself that 1) This is totally blog-worthy and 2) I've never done something like this before. And it's the middle of winter - the air is unbearably cold and dry. My feet are also, often, unbearably cold and dry. So what better time to test out a peeling foot mask?



This set from TONYMOLY only cost about $6 and I looked at some other reviews online before giving this a go and it seemed to have good results for a lot of people. Still....I've always been kind of wary of any product that advertises its purpose as "peeling" your skin. Sounds wrong, but apparently it's painless.

Let's do this.



First impression: Heh, these are kind of cute. They're just these little plastic slip-on socks that have the liquid on the inside. None of it was leaking was out and the "application" process was incredibly smooth. They even come with these cute, little TONYMOLY stickers to keep the sock secured around your ankle.

Just in case, I totally kept my feet propped up on a towel while vegging on the couch.

How did it feel? Ugh, kind of gross and cold and squishy. Not gonna lie. It was a little weird, but I got used to it quickly and then it was just a matter of sitting around for 1.5 hours while the stuff worked its magic.

What did I do for that 1.5 hour block?



I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Again.  (Rey, you're such a badass!~)



Okay....getting bored. Are we done yet? I was honestly not looking forward to getting up and padding into the bathroom while wearing these. I mean, have you ever walked around in wet sandals or flip-flops and just had your feet slide all over inside of them? Makes for a really unsmooth glide....



And they're off! I'm free! So after rinsing the liquid off and drying my feet, I did notice immediately that they were a lot smoother and softer feeling. The package directions indicated that it would likely take up to 4-6 days for peeling to start, so I will update again in a few days with any progress.






Five days later and I finally see some peeling on the bottom of my feet. It doesn't hurt to rub it off or pull off the larger flakes and the skin underneath is incredibly soft and smooth. Will stay vigilant for more developments!



Alright - almost two weeks later and the aftermath of my foot peel experience is this: my feet don't feel that much softer or smoother, but I don't have the scaly calluses that I did before. It's still dry and cold outside, I still wear shoes all day that irritate my feet...so I wasn't expecting a miracle. I was pleasantly surprised though at how effective the peeling was!

Would I do another one? Maybe. But I might try it again in the summer and see what kind of effect it has then. What do you think? Would you like to see another review of a foot peeling product?

  1. I love these kind of reviews so you have gotten yourself a new reader over here :D
    I haven't tried that one yet, I'm a little scared about the pieces falling off the feets, haha!

    1. Luckily, the skin doesn't really fall off so much as loosen up and you can peel it off yourself. And the peeling was very minimal compared to other reviews I've seen, so your feet aren't super dry or scaly, I think it would be minimal for you too! :)

Black-Owned Gothic and Punk Fashion Brands to Support Today

On June 1st, calls for a boycott against Dolls Kill went out after the owner of the company allegedly posted in support of the police after the murder of George Floyd. It isn't the first time they've been accused of racism, so folks have put together a list of alternative brands to support. I would much rather give my business to Black-owned fashion brands and those that are anti-racist. If you are of the same mind as I am, here are a few brands worth supporting:


Punk Clothing/Alternative
Sinister Sisters
Sinister Sisters only have three items on their Etsy shop right now and none of those sexy crop t-shirts would look out of place at a death metal gig. Make sure to stop back in regularly to check for new items, I know that I definitely will be!
Nasty Gem
Independently owned, every item in this shop is hand-made, processed, packaged and shipped by the owner. Spiky bags and collars, deadly earrings, and chunky steel accessories are the mainstay motifs of Nasty Gem, but you can fin…

The Indecisive Nature of Libra

Libra is said to be diplomatic, harmonious, and a lover of all things beautiful. They value intelligence, high art, and often have refined taste. Curiously, they are the only sign represented by an inanimate object (the scales) and they function best at moments of stable equilibrium or balance.

That's what all these teen magazine astrology sections would have you believe, anyways, and there's probably some truth to it. I'm a Libra after all and while I can't mould myself to 100% of these so-called Libra traits...some of it is pretty spot on.

I try to see all perspectives and analyze or present them fairly. I am the least confrontational person you will ever meet. I have a particular aesthetic I am rather fond of and enjoy surrounding myself with the quirky things I personally find pleasing and yeah, maybe I spend just a little too much on Korean skincare products. 

Here's the thing about air signs though - we're flighty. And we're insanely indecisive.

Welcome to The Mystifying World of Modern Dating

Truth be told, I have no idea why I did this
To set the scene: I had recently gotten out of my last long-term relationship and was finally moving out to start my life anew on my own terms. My ex and I were on (mostly) good terms, still operating as friends and giving each other life advice (and maybe a little dating advice) so it felt like a good time to test out the dating app scene. He'd been perusing the waters of Bumble and Tinder, but I wanted to see for myself just how strange and difficult this land of online dating really was.

The Experiment:

The first dating app I installed was Hinge - their slogan is literally that they are designed to be deleted, they promise lasting results that fast. Within two hours of creating my profile and answering three conversation-hook questions, three different guys and one girl were trying to match with me.

1. Let's call this guy City Pages - since he's a freelance writer for this local publication. We spent a day or two chitchattin…
