Have You Met Your Foot's New Best Friend?

The-Footmate

The-FootMate-Rejuvenating-Gel

There are a few things that you are unable to do to yourself. Did you know this? Tickle yourself is one and I’m convinced that a massage is the other. While I can live without being able to do the first on, the second, not so much. If I had a million dollars, the first thing I would do is hire a personal chef with orders to keep Maine lobster in the frig at all times (de-shelled and ready to eat) and the second would be to have a masseuse on call. I read somewhere during the Velvet Rope Tour that Janet Jackson hired her body piercer to come on tour with her. I swear!

Anyway, I came across FOOTMATE at the Indie Beauty Expo recently and wow, it looked like the Mercedes version (they call it the ‘Ferrari of Foot Care,’ and I swear I came up with Mercedes before I even read that on their website!) of the one I’d used, and loved, a few years ago.

And opening the box and looking at the massager/cleaner/exfoliator, I do believe it looks like a manta ray. (I didn’t see that on their site!).

The scrubbers are soft but strong bristles in the middle and studier ones on the sides and the base is a  mildew-resistant rubber that has suction cups on the underside so it suctions to the bottom of your tub for easy scrubbing while you shower. And did I mention how great the scrubber feels on the feet?

Just add a little liquid soap to the bristles and start scrubbing. Your feet will thank you.

Choose from 3 different colors on their site and each order comes with their 7.5oz Rejuvenating Gel, Retrieval Rope and instruction sheet. Blue $39.95 and White or White/Blue is $49.95 @ footmate.com.

The Answer to Removing That Gel Manicure

Nailmates-main
The main reason I tend to stay away from the gel manicure is the removal process. Yes the pluses to these manicures are many: shiny nails, durability, longevity, but oy, the removal. No bueno. And heck, now that I think about it, glitter nail polish is also quite a process to remove as well. 

And I was hoping for someone to come along and create an easier way to remove polishes such as these, like just a straight up super remover that can handle the task but I guess we’re not there yet. So in the meantime, I’m settling for these NAILMATES.

Smells of Spring

Sweet-Smells-O-Spring

1. MATRIX Biolage Polishing Hair Scrub ($23/7.6oz @ jcpenney.com) – this pre-shampoo sugar scrub was made to clean the scalp and hair and I’m a fan of these pre-products lately. This one smells like fresh cut lemons.

2. WEN 'Spring Honey Lilac' eau de parfum ($109/3.4oz @ chazdean.com) – I think I may have found my springtime scent! Living in California, I don’t come across lilacs at all so it’s nice to be able to smell them again on the regular with this frag.

3. METHOD Foaming Body Wash in Ruby Orange ($4.74/18oz @ walgreens.com and target.com) – no waiting for lather with this one! Just a few pumps of this in the wash cloth and you’re ready to go. And the scent is really nice and uplifting.

4. REVIVAL Coffee + Rose Hip Natural Body Scrub ($21.95/8oz @ revivalbodycare.com) – if you need your coffee to wake you up in the morning, you may want to check this one out because coffee is the main ingredient. Also inside this Vegan scrub is coconut oil, brown sugar, virgin olive oil, sea salt, and rose hip oil. That’s it! #supportindies
