October 08, 2015 1 min read

Being the brunt of a joke never feels good. But when social media takes hold, and it feels like the joke is a constant, it can truly take its toll. For 20-year-old Ashley VanPevenage, this was most definitely the case. The student from Tacoma, Washington found herself the subject of hateful comments from the Internet after posting this photo: This girl's post became the subject of a hateful meme. The picture was then reposted by a Twitter user from Texas State University, discussing her own skincare issues. This girl's post became the subject of a hateful meme. But the photo only went viral from there, as people found it funny that someone could conceal their blemishes so well. It was retweeted almost 9,000 times on the account @SoDamnTrue. The meme continued to gain a following, and was soon being shared by thousands of accounts. This girl's post became the subject of a hateful meme. In response to the viral meme, and all the hateful comments that ensued, Ashley decided to post a video to her personal YouTube account, discussing her struggles with being the face of the meme. "I have never been one to be uncomfortable with going out in public and my natural hair until this picture was posted," she said. "I hope that everyone can gain something from this video. I hope that young girls that are dealing with acne or even adults dealing with acne will feel better and feel confident about their face and who they are." https://youtu.be/YqwYTYMtpTg What do you think of Ashley's response?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
