As a busy mom with a tween and a toddler at home, it's difficult for me to take time for myself. Especially when it comes to taking care of my skin. There just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done. Daily chores, playtime with the Attic Baby, eBay, blogging, school drop-off and pick-up....these all take up most of my time. It's difficult to find time to brush my teeth or shower on any given day, so pampering is usually a special occasion.
If given the opportunity to pamper myself, I definitely enjoy it. Especially if it's something to pamper my tootsies. I have ten years of "teacher feet." And they aren't pretty right now; winter dry skin has taken its toll. Going out to get a pedicure just doesn't fit into my schedule (or my budget).
Enter Perfectly Posh!
Perfectly Posh is a relatively new company (launched in 2011) with a "passion for pure and pampering products." These are paraben and parafin-free, soy-free, SLS-free spa grade products. They use essential oil and fine pthalate-free fragrances and natural ingredients. And they are made here in the USA.
The company sent me some great products from their Play Footsie line for this mama's tired and dry tootsies. (You may remember that I injured my foot a few months ago so this came at a great time!)
I started off with a soak with these. The Fabulous Fizzies contain canola oil for moisture and a pop of peppermint and thyme to soothe and relax tired feet. These are wonderful! I felt so relaxed that I could have nodded off while soaking. The peppermint and thyme scent is like your own little spa aromatherapy. (I love the smell of peppermint!)
Next, I used the Rubby Scrubby exfoliator. It doesn't feel grainy like other scrubs I've used. It feels smooth with a mild shea butter soap. Since my feet were incredibly dry (I haven't been able to do lots of scrubbing on my feet because of my injury), this helped get a lot of the dead skin off after my soak. It was a little hard to rub on my foot because I still have pain and soreness from my torn ligament. So I used my fingers to rub it on. Again, the smell of peppermint and thyme was wonderful!
Last, I used the Soothing Stick. It is a smooth moisturizer preserved with vitamin E containing shea butter, bees wax, sunflower, and corn starch. It didn't feel greasy but light and smelled just as yummy as the others. It was the whipped cream to this dessert of foot pampering!
|Now these are some happy mama feet! (though I didn't have time for polish)|
The company also sent me some products from their Lipshot and Oh, Peaches! lines to help with my dry lips. I am an open-mouth breather when I sleep. So often times my lips get incredibly dry from catching flies all night long.
The Oh, Peaches! sugar lip scrub has all natural cane sugar and butters that help slough off dry skin. I rubbed it into my lips and after a few minutes, some of the dry skin came right off and left a smooth texture behind. It smells and tastes like peaches.
After exfoliating, I felt like I needed some extra moisture, so I added the Lipshot balm. It contains shea butter and almond oil. It left my lips feeling soft with a light texture. I have used this right after I wake up in the morning; it gives a nice moisturized shine to my pucker with a sweet peachy scent.
I enjoyed taking some time out for me and my dry skin. I'm definitely going to take the time to pamper myself more often! I think next time I'll recruit my hubby for a massage after my pedi.
