At-Home Spa Day Most Wanted

Sometimes a girl just needs an at-home spa day for a little pampering with all of your favourite new bath, body and beauty products, candles and a glass of wine. Here are a few products to add to your supple for the perfect spa day at home:

Live Clean Dead Sea Salts – Soothe tired muscles on your at-home spa day with a long bath with these Live Clean Dead Sea Salts. They have Epsom salts, green tea extracts, aloe vera, Eucalyptus essential oils and Ginger. All of this combines for soothed muscles. The scent is strong, but really relaxing at the same time. It’s perfect for helping you forget that busy week.

Avon Foot Works Clay Mask – A spa day wouldn’t be complete without a little foot pampering. Short of having someone to give you a pedicure in your living room, this foot clay mask is the best thing to do. I’ve tried lots of clay masks for my face, but never for my feet. The feeling is pretty similar. Be sure that you are sitting somewhere good, because you won’t be able to walk around. You will need to clean your feet off wherever you are. The lavender smell is nice and relaxing while you wait. I didn’t expect much in the way of results, but my feet were very soft after just 10 minutes or so with this on.

Arbonne Tahitian Coconut Lip Therapy Set – You don’t usually get to pamper your lips, but it feels so good when you do. The Lip Smoother is a coconut exfoliator that will help clean up all of that dead skin from winter. The Lip Salve is an oil based balm that softens and moisturizes. It’s a nice treat for your lips to feel soften and fresh.

Claus Porto Soap Gift Box – This is the MOST beautiful soap that I’ve ever owned. The white box with the art deco logo is the first signal that you are in for a treat. No matter how many times I opened it to see the three soaps inside, I was never not in awe. The packaging for each of these German soaps is a work of art in itself. Almost too beautiful to use. When you have had your time with the box, be ready for a nice treat with this soft smelling soap in the tub. Spoil yourself, or someone that you love a lot, with these soaps for every occasion.

Skyn Iceland All Eyes On You Treatments – Skyn Iceland has some of my favourite eye products. They always make them nice and cooling and soothing so that my eyes feel relaxed. This set includes an Icelandic Relief Eye Pen, Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels and Glacial Cleansing Cloths. This means you can pamper yourself with the gels now and have the cloths and pen for your regular everyday use.

Look Beauty Feet Treat Foot Mask

I have never had a pedicure. I know it’s shocking! I just can’t imagine someone touching and inspecting my feet for that long. That is how I ended up with these Look beauty Feet Treat Pedi Foot Masks. It’s my own version of pampering my feet without going to the spa, because hey, my feet want some love too!

I first tried the Exfoliating Foot Mask. Despite what it says right on the front of the box, this foot mask takes longer than 30 minutes, so be ready with some time to sit and relax. This foot mask promises to help remove callouses from your feet.

I open the masks carefully, and it’s a good thing. The solution in these funny little plastic booties is a bit runny. It also smells a bit like rubbing alcohol. You might have to struggle a bit to get your feet comfortably in the boots, but once they are in, they aren’t going anywhere. I wish the solution wasn’t runny, because they I could have put my feet up. Instead I sat for an hour with my feet in these funny plastic socks filled with cold water.

When I took them off I had to rinse off my feet and then go on my way. My feet felt pretty smooth from being in the water for so long, but otherwise they felt normal.

My boyfriend was jealous of all of the pampering my feet were getting, so he opted to help out my testing by trying the Intensive Moisturizing Foot Mask. This one does take 30 minutes! These booties are filled with a thick moisturizer. I was worried that the plastic boots wouldn’t fit him, but they did. They were a bit tight on his toes, but they fit. We sat together with our funny boots on and waited. When he took his boots off, he was amazed. He works construction on his feet all day. All he could say was, wow. He said his feet had never ever been so soft. His treatment was over, but mine was just beginning.

The next morning my feet felt really tight. There was this weird sensation in the soles of my feet that was hard to describe. This soreness lasted for a few days and nothing would help it. Then about four days later, just as the package said, the bottom of my feet started peeling. Boy, oh boy, did they ever starting peeling. The entire soles of my feet were peeling off in big chunks and small flakes. Honestly, it was gross. For a few days I really did want anyone to see my feet. But after it was all done, the results were amazing. My feet felt like they had a whole new, soft skin. That’s probably because they did have a new skin.

While I might not want to do the exfoliating treatment often, they are great when your feet need serious help. I’m definitely considering stocking up!
