Do What Comes Naturally
As Jen mentioned the other day, women tend to subject their feet to more than their fair share of torture. Perhaps no one is more guilty of doing so than yours truly–now that summer is here, I realize I should probably start taking better care of my tattered tootsies! That’s why I picked up this tube of cruelty-free peppermint foot scrub during a recent trip to the drugstore. If anyone’s feet needed to be exfoliated, mine certainly did–let me tell you, they’re anything but photogenic!
The online product description is short, sweet and self-explanatory: this good-for-you organic scrub helps dry, rough feet shed that unwanted layer of flaky or scaly skin–using only natural pumice and walnut shells as exfoliating agents. In addition to buffing and polishing, sunflower oil (an excellent source of therapeutic vitamins A and E) also helps minimize further agony by moisturizing those poor, over-worked soles.
More good news about Kiss My Face: not only is the line cruelty-free, almost everything is also vegan (a few products list honey and/or beeswax among the ingredients; they’re listed in the FAQs). Hooray for humane, eco-friendly beauty!
Are my feet ready for their close-up now? To be perfectly honest, I have only used the scrub once, thus far (on Saturday, to be exact), yet I can already see–and feel–an improvement in the overall texture and appearance. I’ll be sure to keep you posted after subsequent use; I might even feel brave enough to share a pic!
