Herbivore Botanicals Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion Review!

My favorite new skincare find

I’ve officially found my favorite chemical exfoliant! Meet Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion from Herbivore Botanicals. This exfoliates with natural fruit acids to smooth out texture and unclog pores without drying out your skin. It has a watery, serum-like texture and dropper applicator.

I use about three drops per night and apply all over my face and neck. Prism sinks in pretty quickly and then I apply a basic moisturizer, like Clinique Moisture Surge, on top. I want something that will seal in moisture without interrupting the exfoliation process.

It’s been almost two months since I started using Prism and I’m about 1/3 done with the bottle. I usually don’t go through products this quickly, so I’m happy I’ve been so consistent with this part of my routine!

As far as results, I definitely think Prism has improved the texture and clarity of my skin. It’s softer, smoother, and my pores are less clogged. I’ve also noticed less redness in my cheeks in the morning, which is a huge win for me. I deal with a lot of flakiness around my nose and this gets rid of the dead skin cells in that area too.

I’m so happy to have discovered this thanks to Birchbox! It’s definitely on my “to repurchase” list!

Soft Touch Foot Peel Mask Review

The most effective mask ever

I am honestly blown away by this Foot Peel Mask* from Soft Touch. It peeled the dead skin from my feet extremely well, so I wanted to share the process.

This pack comes with two masks, so Reed and I were able to use them together. I think it’s really reasonably priced at $15.95, especially considering how well it works!

First, you cut the top off two plastic, foot-shaped bags, slip your (clean) feet in, and use the tape to secure the opening. They’re nicely filled with the peeling gel, so this helps secure them. You have to wear the mask for 60 minutes, so the tape is definitely convenient for moving around (although I wouldn’t suggest walking a bunch while you wear these).

Our feet felt chilly and wet at first. Reed experienced some warming after about ten minutes. It was mild and not irritation, such as itching or burning. I experienced the warming sensation about 40 minutes in. It didn’t hurt at all.

After an hour, we washed our feet and then the waiting began. The directions say it takes about a week to start peeling and can last for two weeks. Mine started in four days! I guess there was a lot of skin that needed to be shed – haha. Reed’s started the next day. This is the best and most satisfying part!

I want to note that you are not supposed to peel or rip the skin from your feet. It will loosen and fall off naturally. However, I’m a picking kind of person (and also, the idea of dead skin falling off all over the house freaked me out). I’m not recommending that you peel your skin, but I could tell mine was ready as large curls of skin around the edges of my feet were already appearing.

The amount of skin that came off for the first three days was actually amazing. I’ve been scrubbed at a hammam in Marrakech and still have never seen that much dead skin come off of my body. This may be graphic, but there was about a palmful of dead skin flakes/peels every day. They looked like when you peel sunburn, but a bit thicker. It was really interesting that not only the entire bottom of my feet and heels peeled, but also in between my toes and the top of my foot.

I’m so impressed with this mask! It was kindly gifted by the brand, but I will definitely be purchasing more for later in the summer! The first one came at the perfect time so my feet feel perfectly smooth for my Florida trip!

Have you ever tried a foot mask? How about any other fun or interesting masks?
