Personal Care Spotlight: FaceTory is Glowing Pink!


BREA, Calif., Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FaceTory, the subscription service that delivers curated boxes filled with Korean sheet masks straight to the subscriber's doorstep, has officially announced the launch of their #BCA box. This limited-edition box, available only for the month of October, was curated by a team of sheet mask junkies at a FaceTory who believe that every woman, no matter her battle, has every right to feel beautiful in her own skin. These sheet masks ranging in different steps, functions, scents, and even shades of pink can be the perfect way to prep your skin for the day ahead or wind down after a long night.  FaceTory wanted to not only raise awareness about Breast Cancer, but also help raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  We will be making a donation of 3% of all our subscription proceeds from both subscription plans to the BCRF.  FaceTory would love your support in launching this new box and taking a part in helping to raise awareness for breast cancer.

Curation Process:

Every month, subscribers will receive a variety of unique masks ranging in purpose and functionality. These sheet masks are included based on a curation process by a team of fun and knowledgeable sheet mask junkies sampling and testing out the products themselves. From news to tips and how-to videos, FaceTory informs their subscribers about their products in a fun and engaging way while still allowing the personality of the company to shine through. This allows consumers to discover the hard-to-find, new, and trending sheet mask brands in the comfort of their own homes. Every month we scour the Korean sheet mask market for fun and popular masks that have little to no exposure in the western market. We then personally try out each sheet mask and narrow down the selection before packing these hidden gems into our boxes.

Box options:

SEVEN LUX - A premium plan includes more diverse selections such as hydrogels and multi-step masks with higher quality ingredients. This box has 7 carefully curated sheet masks with a price of $15.95/month.

FOUR-ever FRESH - A great entry level plan for Kbeauties who are newly discovering sheet masks. This plan includes more fabric type masks such as cotton & cellulose with the most essential functions and features.  These 4 carefully curated sheet masks are only $5.95/month.

Skin Care Spotlight: Peach & Lily Launches Skincare Brand



First Product--A Sheet Mask Collection--Bows Nationwide

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Korean beauty destination, Peach & Lily, launches its own skincare brand—Peach & Lily—with a collection of three "must have" sheet masks. Founder, Alicia Yoon launched online retail site Peachandlily.com in 2012 to bring premium Korean beauty products to U.S. consumers. Alicia has also been tapped to curate special Korean beauty collections for many U.S. retailers, including Macy's, Sephora, QVC, Anthropologie, and Target.

The Peach & Lily Sheet Mask Collection includes three targeted masks that address top skin concerns as voiced by Yoon's customers. "We listen very closely to what our customers want and are very engaged with their needs. The launch of our own Peach & Lily brand sheet masks is in response to our skin-savvy customers' wish list – gentle, yet potent formulations, packed with super skin friendly ingredients designed to deliver glowing results.  These are the ultimate dream sheet masks and we can't wait to share them," said Yoon.


The Peach & Lily Sheet Masks are created with a silky cellulose material derived from cottonseed fibers so they are comfortable, breathable, lightweight and thin.  The material provides each mask with a high absorption level so it can hold and deliver active ingredients effectively. The masks are formulated without many of the irritating ingredients typically found in beauty products, such as synthetic fragrances and dye, alcohol, parabens, sulfates. The masks are sold individually for $6 or as a set of 3 for $15.

Peach & Lily's inaugural product introduction bows this week at 50 Macy's stores nationwide and on Macys.com, as well as on Peachandlily.com. Yoon and Macy's first partnered last year to open Peach & Lily shop-in-shops at 2 Macy's locations, one in Flushing, New York and one in Arcadia, CA .

"We are pleased to announce that Macy's will carry the Sheet Mask Collection from Peach & Lily at 50 locations as well as macys.com," said Richard Zappala, Omni Buyer, Impulse Skincare for Macy's. "These masks will be a great addition to our assortment while bringing our customers the best in Korean skincare innovation."

Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) is known as a natural food. In Korea, KRG's health and medicinal value is widely accepted and is literally sold in almost every pharmacy, grocery and department store. My 75 year old grandmother, who is always being mistake for a much younger age has consumed Red Ginseng practically her whole life and says, Korean Red Ginseng is the reason for her optimal health. She has always encouraged everyone in my family to also take advantage of its many health benefits. After witnessing the postitive suport that Korean Red Ginseng was able to provide my father, a type 2 diabetic, I too became a true believer.

Authentic, six year grown Red Ginseng is strictly controlled and closely monitored by the Korean government to protect the integrity of their KRG as there are many imitaions. I had to travel to Korea, where I was fortunate enough to secure the highest grade of 6 year KRG from a reputable and reliable supplier.

Packaging Spotlight: Panjaban Curry Sauces



Designed by
Niki Merriman



Panjaban is a family run business which started in 2010 specialising in Punjabi home cooking. Their philosophy is simple; No compromises on authenticity. These principals are the heart of this company and they wanted a brand image to set them apart from their competitors. Currently ‘home Indian’ cooking products are dated in terms of design. With Panjaban, I wanted to create a strong image of heritage along with a very modern twist.

Inspiration came from traditional Indian Henna patterns, along with using colors taken from the aromatic ingredients used to make this delicious sauce. The full package was designed from the logo, brand image, packaging, advertising posters, stationary and website
