Shakeology, 18 Shake, SlimQuick and numerous other brands represent one of the most sought-after diet supplement also known as a meal replacement. The title of this type of shakes denotes its intended use. However, why should anyone replace a meal? The answer lies in the necessity to reduce body mass by burning excessive fat. An MR shake does not act as a fat burner but a drink to cope with food cravings. Thus, users abandon a full meal for this rich-in-protein drink.
Despite the abundance of trademarks and options available in the market of sports and diet nutrition, it is not easy to find a merchandise to fit certain requirements.

Isn’t it fun to dress up and change your look now and then? Even if it’s not Halloween; even if you’re not attending a themed party; even if you’re not a model/actor anyway? We are lucky to be living in a time and a world where we are free to discover our selves and try different things without being judged…by most people…I mean, of course, not everyone will get you and let you be but they don’t really matter anyway, right? Point is changing our physical appearance, be it for fun or self-expression is easy as pie these days! Especially with the Internet, e-commerce, and better & faster shipping options. And what is an easier way to change an appearance than by changing your hair style, or perhaps, just wearing lace wigs!
I hope you’re following me on my social media & YouTube channel and you saw my posts/announcements aboutAlthea Korea‘s 2nd birthday celebration. It’s amazing how much Althea has grown in just two years, from being a seemingly simple Korean online shop, to having an informative blog, its own app/mobile shop, and a YouTube channel where we can watch Althea’s resident pixies, mermaids, and unicorns. Althea Korea has also expanded to the rest of Southeast Asia–Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand–and is now getting global by serving the USA, and who knows what’s next?
Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel is being raved everywhere, ever since. I’ve always been curious about the aloe vera plant and the skin care magic it possess but since I don’t have an actual plant, I decided to try the next best thing. I got my first tub of this product from my first-ever Althea Box; I thought, if I’m gonna explore the world of K-Beauty, I have to start with a basic-yet-cult-favorite skin care product which this is.
Aloe Vera is widely known as sunburn and wound remedy, as well as, some kind of a tonic that contributes to hair growth. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is believed to be a natural antioxidant and said to have anti-bacterial properties; hence, it is used as a skin treatment to a variety of skin conditions. The gel of the aloe vera leaves has high water content, and many claims that it is naturally soothing, moisturizing, and healing. And while there’s not enough scientific evidence of its benefits, it is still widely used in many countries. Some people claims that the real aloe vera gel (from the actual plant) is too irritating, personally, I can’t really tell; I guess it depends on one’s skin type, eh?
Prior to trying this out, I’ve used other aloe vera gel products before but they’re not good enough (too sticky) for me. When I got this, I was a bit skeptical but have high hopes nonetheless. I’m just glad it didn’t disappoint and while it didn’t wowed me at first, I liked that it’s really refreshing. Eventually, I treasured this product more than my other skin care products (full story later). Let’s talk about the basics first.
