Guest Post: Refresh Skin Therapy

Refresh Skin Therapy is a new item available online at and the founder, Joanna Shu, emailed us to see if she can write a guest post for her product. We said OK and below is what she has to say. We just copied and pasted her email.


My name is Joanna Shu, and I’m the founder of Refresh Skin Therapy, a natural skincare line with a focus on peels. The big news is that now our best-selling product is available on Fruit Acid 15% Gel Peel!

I started this line for skin health to address my own acne rosacea (including scars from continual breakouts) as well as my own skin allergies to almost everything in conventional skincare products. To give you a small glimpse of the severity of my allergies, I have been allergic to: fragrance, artificial colors, the sun, saltwater, even my own tears! So what I’m saying is, I’m really fun at parties (not). 

Desperate to get my Rosacea under control, I went to a spa for a (very expensive) peel treatment, and the results were incredible. The redness and acne breakouts on my cheeks cleared almost immediately. But unfortunately the price was also incredible: peels can run anywhere from $70-$150 per application, with a recommended series of 6-8 treatments.

My wallet, my work, and my family’s busy schedule made that an impossibility. My goal then became to make peels accessible to everyone, since peels are a highly effective treatment for many skin issues, such as acne, fine lines, scars, and blotchiness. With a Refresh peel you can get spa results, but at home, on your own time, and for a fraction of the cost. 

Creating the [re]fresh line became my personal quest: to find products that really work for even the most sensitive skin types without compromising our values. I worked with some of the best labs in the country, testing countless formulations until we came up with “this is the one!” for ever single product.

Not only do our products deliver beautiful skin, they are also vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and made in the USA. I hope you love our products as much as we do.

So please check us out on Costco!

Best Wishes,

Joanna Shu
