Guest Post - {Tried & True} ♥ Skin Republic Foot Rescue

Hi guys ! Hope you had a great week . It's finally FRIDAY ! HOORAY !

Today I have a guest post from a lovely fellow  South African & Bahrain  blogger (and all round super sweet lady ! ) Martie from Living Lightley . (If you are not following her already , I'll leave all her social media links at the end. :)


______________________

So a couple of weeks ago Lynette from Pink & Purple Dots asked me if I would be down for doing a Guest Blog Post for her, and of course I immediately said yes. 

I have been following her blog for quite a while now, and I am one of her biggest fans for sure. 

I was playing around with some ideas of doing some nail polish swatches for this post, but then I decided to go with something totally different and do a mini review on something for the Feet… (PLUS, let’s face it, I have not yet mastered the art of doing swatches and taking photos of my hands that looks kind of OK-ish… Any tips here ladies?) *giggles out loud*


I bought this Skin Republic Foot Rescue whilst I was in SA last year but for some or other reason I only decided to use it last week and oh boy did I enjoy this one! Now, I am no stranger to the Skin Republic sachets, as I have used some of their other products before, like the Foot Peel (which is also great by the way) and some of their face masks. I am such a sucker for a mask that I usually SKULK around the mask section in Clicks or Dis-Chem admiring all the weird and wonderful things that they can come up with. So needless to say when I saw this one for the tootsies, I instantly picked it up and put it in my basket. 

The Skin Republic Foot Rescue combines 18 plant extracts into a serum that coats the insides of the booties which you will find inside the packet. This includes Peppermint, Avocado and Tea Tree which helps to soothe irritated, scaly and flaking skin. The added Argon Oil, Collagen and Vitamin E helps to moisturise whilst Eucalyptus (which has a germicidal effect protecting against infection and provides relief from itching and athletes foot), Thyme and Mint helps to reduce redness and deodorize the feet. The conditioning foot mask definitely helps to heal cracked heels and softens corns and calluses to leave you with silky smooth steppers. The whole process is super easy, take out the booties, cut them where indicated, pop them on cleansed and dry feet, sit back and relax for 20 minutes. You will start to feel an intense tingling sensation, which I found lasted a good couple of hours after I took my booties off. This could also have been due to the fact that I can be over zealous and left mine on for longer than the given time frame of 20 minutes {I know, I know, but my feet where really tired and dry and I felt they deserved the longer soak}. After I finally took of the booties and massaged in the extra remaining serum, my feet felt super soft, refreshed and smelled deliciously of Peppermint. 

Top Tip:
 If you are not a fan of the tingling/burning sensation I would suggest not sitting in a room where there is a draft as this will intensify the effect. I made that mistake and the tingling quickly turned into a bit of a burning sensation (call me a masochist, but I kind of enjoyed it)
According to Skin Republic the skin has a 4 week regeneration period and they suggest that the treatment be used twice a week for the first month and then as required thereafter, which I feel is a bit overkill on the wallet. Maybe treat yourself to 1 or 2 of these in a month when you do not have the time or the energy to soak, scrub and file away at your weary feet.  

I am definitely picking up more of these plus some of the Foot Peels during our next trip to South Africa, seeing as we are heading into Summer here in Bahrain and I need to get my tootsies sandal ready.
The Skin Republic Foot Rescue is available form Clicks, Dis-Chem, Rubybox, Red Square and Edgars. I got mine from Edgars for R50,00 but they retail on Rubybox for R44,95

  6. Thanks for stopping by and reading ladies, I feel so overwhelmed with the amazing support from all of you for a newbie blogger. ♥♥♥

    Anonymous - I would say this is great if you have the money to spend on this treatment, but it only lasts a day or so like any other cream etc. Definitely look at my review on the Micro Pedi, this has definitely changed my Pedi game and makes it so much easier as I also hate putting in a lot of manual filing etc. Hope this helps xxx
