What’s your weekend shoe situation? Try style with Sanuk!

I’m wondering if you are like me and have those days where you need to do a lot of running or even some lounging but may have to go outside.  What kind of shoe do you wear on THOSE types of days? Do you suck it up and drag out your boots or running shoes and socks?  Do you say screw it and throw your foot into a flat even though you’re in your yoga pants?

Footlogix- foot deodorant spray review

I try to take care of my feet….especially in the summer time when they are ‘exposed’ and in public more often.  When I say taking care of, I’m mainly referring to aesthetics however, I do tend to visit the podiatrist (that reminds me, I’ve got to schedule an appointment!)  One thing I am very ‘aware’ of  is foot odor and sweating.  I’m a huge fan of cooling sprays, gels, and foot powders.

I was sent Footlogix deodorant spray for review. 

footlogix

The package says this:

This spray-on formula by Footlogix is specially designed to kill bacteria that causes foot odor. Containing tea tree oil and menthol, this product refreshes and neutralizes foot odors and leaves your skin feeling cool and fresh.

Sounds good right?

Directions:  Spray on all sides of washed, dry feet from about 4”-6” away. Air dry for 30 seconds.

I’ll be honest with you, I am not a fan of this product.  Does that mean you should not give it a try? Absolutely not! In my case, I have found that foot powders and gel based lotions work ‘best’ for me.  The product has a very strong smell...and while it’s not a terrible smell, I find it is a ‘consuming’ smell that will wrap its arms around you and hang on tight for awhile-especially if you are in a small space (don’t make the mistake of spraying it on your feet in your office with the door closed).   30 seconds for drying isn’t a terribly long time but if you are multi-tasking in the morning before work like me, I’m not sure where I could fit this into my routine-maybe during my 2 minute coffee gulp?  Maybe I should overhaul my foot care routine to try to fit this product into my rotation but for now, I’m going to stick to my foot powder that I’ve been using. For now, this product is with my husband-and I’ve had to say the same thing to him “It’s not spray and go, you have to wait 30 seconds.”

What’s up with your feet? Have any foot care tips/tricks you want to share?  Let me know!

*Thank you to NailPolish Canada for sending me this product for review*

Sweet escape with SITAMAA Day Spa! (An Aveda Caribbean Therapy giveaway!)

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’ll be the first to say it.

Spring is upon us…..and among the official pack-the-winter-clothes-bring-out-the-summer-clothes is a long list of beauty related items  There’s the teeth whitening, the hair lightening & brightening, the bronzing, and the facials.  So it’s not a surprise that my feet get pushed to the bottom of this list (gasp).  I mean, they’re at the bottom of my body right? Who’s going to notice the rough heels, and jagged  nails?  And why oh why do all spring/summer shoes have to be cute, strappy sandals?

Upon my new found love for peep toe, slingback heels,  I thought I would be a bit more pro-active.  I recently had a Caribbean Therapy pedicure at SITAMAA Day Spa and my feet have been singing my praises ever since!  I don’t have to remind you of my love for SITAMAA though do I? You’ve read my blog post about it, correct?

(you’ll feel like you are in the picture above)

This pedicure isn’t just your standard soak, file, lotion-oh no no.  This pedicure is 1 hour and 15 minutes!  What happens during that time, you ask?  Well, the treatment is performed using all the Caribbean therapy products from the soak, exfoliation, masque and massage cream!  I even got to go home with an Aveda Caribbean therapy exfoliator and a Bath bar! YES please!
