Spring 2016’s bare shoe trends, such as popular gladiator sandals, slides and mules, mean that feet that have been hidden away all winter – pounded by pumps and squashed into heavy boots – are suddenly on display. So this spring, in addition to a professional pedicure, you will need to get your tootsies in shape!
One of the fastest ways that I have found to get sandal-ready quickly is with new First Botany Cosmeceuticals Tea Tree Oil Foot Scrub. This is an all-natural scrub that blends the healing properties of Tea Tree Oil with the natural exfoliating effects of Dead Sea and Epsom Salts. The combination helps maintain healthy, smooth, beautiful feet – perfectly ready for those new Christian Louboutins!
Although there are many scrubs on the market that I really like, as well other exfoliating methods from traditional loofahs to special tools like Exfolimate, First Botany’s scrub contains one ingredient essential for feet — Tea Tree Oil.
Tea Tree Oil actually has a long history of use in Australia, where Aborigines have been using it medicinally for thousands of years. And, in 1770, when Captain James Cook of the British Royal Navy landed near what is now Sydney, the local inhabitants shared with him the healing powers of these trees, including anti-viral and anti-fungal benefits. Within the cosmetics industry, the rest is history!
The scrub also contains a variety of oils to nourish healthy new skin and provide a fresh, clean fragrance. Other oils include soothing Vitamin E, Jojoba, and Chamomile, as well as fragrant Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Spearmint and Peppermint.
The scrub is easy to use. A little goes a long way to smoothing off dead skin and even some callouses. Feet look great and are softer, smoother, and sandal-ready.
SAFETY NOTE: I use this in the bath only, as it contains a variety of oils, and can make the shower very, very slippery. Also, if you use it on the bottoms of feet, be extremely careful getting in and out of the tub. The same oils that are so beneficial for moisturizing the skin also make feet so smooth and slick, you are apt to slip. Drying off on the bath mat and putting on socks will keep in both heat and moisture (increasing the moisturizing and soothing properties of the scrub). More importantly, it will keep you safe. And, don’t forget to clean the tub for the safety of the next person.
The list price for First Botany Cosmeceuticals Tea Tree Foot Scrub is $35.00, but with Amazon Prime, it is available for only $14.50. This is a bargain compared to many, comparable products such as Ole Henriksen Rub N’ Buff Salt Scrub ($38), Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea ($52), or Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish ($60).
And, First Botany Cosmeceuticals is so sure that you will love this scrub, they offer a 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. If this Tea Tree Oil Scrub does not provide your skin with a more glowing and radiant appearance upon the very first use, or if you are not completely satisfied with the product, they will refund your entire purchase.
