I love the products I received from Soul Scents in California.
For this home pedicure session, It felt the most like being at a
spa having the full treatment.
For the self-indulging event, I
began with Soul Scents Dead Sea Bath Salts (or foot soak for
When I opened the bag to fill my tub, I noticed
a thin slip of paper nestled in with the sea salts. To my
surprise it was a quote (like in a fortune cookie) to help get
my mind in the right place for my evening of fun. What a great
"You are never asked to do more than you are able
without being given the strength and ability to do it."
I need that!! OK, now I’m even more excited about putting my
tootsies in the "soul enriching" soak. he warm foot soak was
very relaxing. After about 10-15 minutes, my feet felt so soft.
My rough, dry skin was down the drain.
This is a great bath soak
also. My sensitive skin did not react at all to the natural
ingredients: of Dead Sea salts and essential oils. The salts have
a very nice, clean scent as well.
Next, I tried the Soul Scents
Sugar Scrub ($36 for 17 oz. at
SoulScents.org). THIS IS THE BEST SCRUB EVER!! The sugar
is so much less irritating than typical salt and seed scrubs. It
doesn’t sting at all. I tried both the Brown Sugar and Citrus
This product also had the slip of paper (wax) with a
quote. In the tub of scrub, there was a seashell to stir the
product and use as a dipper - I love it! Too cute! Again, this
totally gave that extra touch so I felt I was having a spa
treatment - Mind, soul and body!!
Be sure to stir the scrub before using. It is extremely oily, but that
is part of what I really liked about it. It’s designed to be
used in the shower or bath and is gentle enough to use daily.
worked as an excellent exfoliate on my feet, but I loved it even
more when I used it in the shower. After washing with soap, I
applied it liberally in a circular motion all over my body. The
sweet smell and sugary/oily mixture was pure heaven.
exfoliating you can use the scrub to shave with. At first,
I did not believe the packaging instructions when they said,
"shave over the sugar scrub under arms, bikini, legs and face….
rinse and towel off completely (very important due to oils)."
The product states you will never need to apply shaving cream,
lotion or body spray after bathing again. And they are right!! The sugar and oils actually
protect your skin and razor and make for the cleanest, most
moisturizing shave I’ve experienced.
I still felt the
moisture and emollient-feel the next morning after showering the
previous night. Since there is no water or alcohol in the
product it actually extends the life of your razor. No issue
with my sensitive skin either. After showering, bathing or
“scrubbing” with the product, you have this thick layer of oil
all over your body. It seals in the moisture. Need I say
This is a must-try for feet exfoliation, and for everyday
bathing/showering as well. CAUTION: The directions emphasize
that due to the product’s oily nature, be sure to clean your
tub or shower so you avoid slipping. Be careful!
To end my fabulous foot frenzy of a night, I massaged the
Peppermint and Tea Tree Shea Butter Lotion on my renewed
feet. While the peppermint was soothing (it also helps stimulate
circulation) the antiseptic properties of tea tree oil help to
kill odor-causing bacteria (so that’s why the best foot care
products contain that essential oil).
