    12. Tonymoly Foot Peeling Shoes removes dead skin cells from your feet over the course of a week. So gross to look at, but also really satisfying?!

    First, you put the sheets on your feet and wait until your skin absorbs the liquid (1 to 1.5 hours). Then take them off and wash your feet until the peeling liquid is fully rinsed away. Finally, in 4 to 6 days, the dead cells will naturally start peeling from your feet.

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical at first & so hesitant that it stayed in my cupboard for a couple of months before I tried it. It took about a week to actually start peeling but I found soaking them in epsom salt helped then putting lotion on them. Now my feet are now the smoothest than they ever been ever. I'm honestly going to order a bunch of these to stock up on." β€”ChristyK1

    Price: $6.50

    Price: $14.50

    15. SkinFood Rice Brightening Scrub Foam is rich in Odae rice water and vitamin E, which work as anti-inflammatories and acne-fighters. The foaming formula is great for gently removing dirt built-up throughout the day without removing all the moisture.

    Promising review: "I have very sensitive skin and have used other washes and exfoliators, this one does an awesome job plus is gentle on my skin. I love being able to feel the little exfoliating bits in the foam. I had been looking for something that wasn't harsh to my skin but still felt like it did a good job. My face didn't feel taught or squeaky clean, but it still felt nourished yet clean. Would totally recommend this product." β€”DaiSuki2u

    Price: $14

Highly recommend for anyone, especially anyone with acne-prone skin like myself." β€”Sara
