I’m excited to share today’s post which has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone, just like always. And really, CB + this advertiser are awesome, just wait and see with this easy at home pedicure: #RespectUrFeet #CollectiveBias
Confession: my biggest complaint about pregnancy recently is my feet (that are always desperately in need of a foot massage/pedicure). Pregnancy is beautiful, wonderful, and rewarding, but carrying around these extra thirty pounds on my size 6.5 feet gets a bit exhausting. Add to that dryness that comes with winter and you have a recipe for very sad soles (at least I’m not also adding to that my dancer’s or climber’s feet of years/months passed because my goodness, I picked activities that do a number on one’s feet).
I never understood paying for a pedicure until I finally did it. It was then that I realized you do not pay for someone to put nail polish on your toes. You hand over your hard earned cash for the massaging, moisturizing, and smoothing they do beforehand..and let me tell you, my feet have been needing all three. Luckily I have a husband who loves me enough to take care of the first one, and I discovered the new Amopé products to handle the last two. So as fun as it is to sit in that massage chair, I’ve found a much cheaper option 😉
^The new Amopé Pedi Perfect takes off dead skin (think all the rough, dry, callouses around your heels) really well and the foot cream is the best foot lotion I’ve ever tried (and yes, I’ve tried quite a few). What I’m wondering is where was this when I spent 20 hours a week dancing in heels and another couple stuffed into tiny climbing shoes?
^while I’m pretty excited to use these in the summer when my feet are out in the open more often (or, you know, next week in California ;)), it’s in the winter when they really start to dry out and need a bit more TLC
^I was surprised at the difference the moisturizer made – I’ve been moisturizing regularly and I’m sure it was the combination of the pedicure gadget + cream, but this lotion made the rougher skin on my feet much softer than my favorite body lotions
