Did you know it’s really hard to do a foot selfie? Anyway, if I need to admit one thing to you guy is that…my feet aren’t the nicest smelling things in the world and they get sweaty easily when I wear flats. When I was in China I had a pedicure + exfoliation done to my feet and let’s just say that years of skin build up was shredded off in a mere matter of ten minutes and alerted me that I really need to start looking after them. I recently been trying Gena Perfect Pedicure Feet-to-Go from Trade Secrets and I think my feet may have hope!
The Gena Perfect Pedicure Feet-to-Go kit includes 6 mini to items to complete your at home manicure:
- Pedi Septic- a foot spray that contains Eucalyptus and Tea Tree Oil to prevent bacteria that causes odor, and Menthol to cool and refresh.
- Pedi Soak- a liquid foot soak that contains Tea Tree Oil to cleanse and soften dry skin
- Pedi Soft- a conditioning lotion enriched with natural Fruit Extracts to hydrate feet and legs
- Pedi Care- a sloughing lotion that exfoliates and sloughs off dead skin; contains Peppermint Oil
- Pedi Ice- a massage gel that contains Menthol and Eucalyptus to cool and refresh skin
- Pedi Sander File- a file to gently remove hard, callused skin
There are 6 steps to treating your feet:
1. Spray the feet with the Pedi Septic.– It has a Tea Tree Oil scent and when I sprayed it, it definitely neutralized the sourness of my feet (sorry, TMI?) This guy is coming in my purse because July is only going to get hotter, and when I take off my shoes in my cubicle at work…PHEW
2. Mix 14mL of Pedi Soak into a warm water bath for the feet and soak for 5-10 minutes.- The fragrance is a general soapy smell and the presence of Sodium Laureth Sulfate made the bath foamy. There is also Tea Tree Oil in the ingredients but I didn’t detect any smell.
3. Use the sloughing lotion to either remove cuticles (by adding lotion to each toe,) or remove dry skin. To remove dry skin, massage a small amount with firm strokes until the dry skin is rolled off. After sloughing, rinse off in the foot bath. – I spent a while on this step, but at last, I didn’t notice bits of dead skin rubbing off. I was expecting it to be like those peel exfoliators for the face where grey bits appear when you start to exfoliate the face, but this didn’t happen. Nevertheless, it did made my feet feel smooth, but I would have been entertained to see the dead skin cells being rid away.
4. Use the Pedi Sander to gently file and soften calluses on the heel and ball of the foot. Use the fin side of the file to refine the dry skin. – The file was a bit too gentle. I need something more abrasive for my feet, because the heel has many hard layers that needs some extra strength (sadly.)
5. Use Pedi Soft and start applying from the knee down to the foot. – I’m not too fond of the smell for this one, but my feet was starting to feel like marshmallows after this so I approve.
6. Before polishing nails (I skipped this step,) apply 7g of Pedi Ice to legs and feet and massage it lightly into the skin. – This was the cherry on top! I love the scent of Eucalpytus and Menthol blended together and it had a tingly feeling. I’m a fan of tingly, minty lip glosses so it’s a no brainer that the Pedi Ice deserve some love too.
Overall, outside pedicures are still more intense with more noticeable results, but nonetheless the Gena Perfect Pedicure Feet-To-Go left my feet uber soft, and as I was typing, I had been rubbing my feet together so they can feel each other’s softness. My favourite of the bunch was the Pedi Septic spray and the Pedi Ice gel rub, as they both added an extra level of comfort that pedicurists don’t have (or so far I haven’t experienced people spraying my feet with Tea Tree Oil spray.) I’m hoping I can do this every 1-2 weeks to maintain fresh feet and I will be spraying them every morning! You can grab the Gena Perfect Pedicure Feet-To-Go from Trade Secrets for $34.95 CAD.
