Sneaker Sunday time!
We all love our sneakers, they are totally awesome but feet need pampering so this week Valerie and I are going to show you some options on how to give those feet what they really deserve!
To two reviews today.
Firstly the best $18 I spent the month we moved here:
At home foot spa from Kmart. Firstly I couldn’t believe that it was actually $18… So freaking cheap, I haven’t seen them in stores for less that $40!
Basically you pour water into it and turn it on. It massages, whirls heats the water. Awesome in theory but in this case you get what you pay for…
This is where the problems start… it only does 1 out of those 3 things: Massage
It doesn’t heat the water and it doesn’t whirl/bubble. I probably just got a faulty one but the train fare back to a Kmart is around $20 so it seems silly to spend that money when I would get $18 back!
But you know what? Even after all of that this was completely worth the money because after a long day of walking I pop the kettle on, fill the tub up and massage my feet to my heart’s content!
I read a great a magazine, put on some music and chill out.
By the time the water cools I am relaxed and feeling like a big pool of jelly. Having this feeling at home is something that I just love.
Verdict: If I hadn’t got a faulty model I might love it more. I’m not unhappy with the features I have but I am annoyed that the others didn’t work. I can’t vouch for the quality of any other models so I’m giving it a 3/10. If I was going to buy again I would spend the extra money and get a really good one from Priceline or something ^_^
Now once you’re finished your foot spa you, what better way to top it off than a delicious foot/leg treatment??
I tried out the “Tired Leg Gel” from Montagne Jennesse! I absolutely adore their face masks so I thought this would be a nice way to relax.
The smell was *very* cherry (which I’m personally not a fan of) and it has an insane cooling sensation when you rub it in. This sensation might be really overpowering for some of you, I found it to be a bit unpleasant because it’s the dead of winter here so I was freezing XD
In the Summer though I can see how this would be really lovely after a hot day.
I found it to be quite sticky even after rubbing in for a long time. It would go really well with an extended leg rub from your significant other! XD
Verdict- Very nice feeling, very relaxing but better for Summer but not Winter!
So neither product I used today was completely successful but the most important thing to take out of this is that you should take time to try things like this and pamper yourself and your feet a bit! They spend all week carrying you around so the least you can do is give them half an hour of loving!
