Although it seems like the warm weather is a distant memory now, it’s always nice to treat your feet to some TLC and I was recently sent some lovely foot care goodies from Scholl and from justmylook to kick start the summery feeling.
I actually frequently spend many evenings removing dead skin from Hubby’s feet for him manually with a nail file. I weirdly find it quite therapeutic but I hate the idea of anyone touching my feet which is why I’ve never had a professional pedicure.
Scholl have got a new Velvet Smooth Diamond Crystals Express Pedi which is so much easier than the cheap foot files. It’s pretty scary though and makes a huge roar. The Express Pedi rolls over your feet gently removing dead skin. It’s actually far better than I expected! Hubby’s feet have some rather dry areas and it worked wonders. If used daily it leaves his feet super smooth.
I teamed my home pedicure up with some pretty awesome Scholl Dry Skin Recovery Cream. One thing I have done is try different creams and lotions and potions. This one actually works instantly and as a fantastic recovery cream for really awful dry skin on your feet. My feet are not in a bad state but using the Express Pedi and the Recovery Cream combined has left my feet feeling young and bouncy again in just a few days of using them.
We were also sent some Shoe Spray and Gel Cushions. I used the Gel Cushions in my heels for the first time ever last night when I went out for a meal with my girl friends. I’ve always sort of laughed at this type of product in the shop, but these do actually make your high heels feel much comfier. These ones are reusable which is an added bonus of course. The shoe spray has been used to freshen up P1s school trainers and Hubby’s shoes. This will be used a lot I think in the summer as our feet sweat and smell more.
So it’s now time to brighten our feet, and hands, up a little ready for summer. When I think of summer I think colour. Bright and bold. OPI kindly sent me their Hawaii set of nail varnishes. Inside the set are four hilariously named colours; Suzi Shops & Island Hops (Light pink), That’s Hula-rious! (Mint green), Lost My Bikini in Molokini (Purple) and Aloha from OPI (coral). I really love OPI, it dries pretty quick and you only usually need one coat. My girls love to have their nails painted so having a quick dry varnish is really handy for wriggly children. With it now being the summer holidays I promised P1 she could have her hands and feet painted so that’s what we’ve done!
