Inside this terrific set you’ll find 3 Burt’s Bees products and an Ecotools foot brush and pumice. It’s exactly what you need. Your feet will love this Peppermint Foot Lotion that is is made with peppermint, menthol, vegetable based glycerin and coconut oil to help soften calluses and revive and rejuvenate dry feet. The Ecotools foot brush is a cruelty free double sided tool with a pumice on one side and the brush on the other.

My favorite of the sets I have is the Endless Shine Trio. I love the 3 Lip Shines that come in this set. They are just the right size, just the right cool colors and just the right texture. While they are a tad sticky upon application, once they are on you won’t notice anything but great color and moisture for your lips.

Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is.

I’m showing my age but when I received Worry Free Pedi to test out, I couldn’t help but think of Speedy Alka Seltzer. Once I used them the feeling returned. Just like Alka Seltzer this product relieves problems and just like Alka Seltzer they do plop and fizz.

When I go to the nail salon I always bring my own polish and now when I go I’ll be bringing Worry Free Pedi when I’m due for a pedicure. While you can use this at home I think the best use is when you are going to a public place for your day of beauty. From the Asian nail salons to the most expensive spas you will be saving yourself some worry taking these along.

This took a minute to use so it didn’t add any time or bother to my last pedicure. You open one tablet and plop it in the soapy water being filled in the tub. As it dissolves you can see it bubbling (fizzing) away. You’ve just taken all the steps you need to reduce any contamination and make sure that no bacteria or fungus can get to you. It cleans the water making it sanitary. You’ll feel better about your pedicure.

There are 8 tablets in the package so for $9.99 you have 8 pedicures taken care of in a sanitized method.

Any pedicure I’ve gotten the bowls have been cleaned thoroughly by the nail tech but that doesn’t mean the bacteria and fungus is completely gone. When the water jets begin that’s when there’s potential for prior contamination to make its way into the bowl. As your technician is filling the bowl just drop one of these tablets in before the jets get turned on. After 60 seconds stick your feet in and you are set to go.

As someone who has gotten toe nail fungus in the past, not only am I protecting myself but I’m also not adding any contaminates for the next user. Even if there aren’t water jets, these can still be used for protection.  —  Marcia
