Beauty on a Serious Budget: SpaSensials Socks

This post is dedicated to my friend Erika, who was recently complaining that her formerly soft feet are no longer post-pregnancy.

I was sort of dubious that these socks were even a good idea when I first heard about them. Slipping my feet into ALREADY MOIST socks? That sounded utterly vile to me. On occasion, I’ll use some Aquaphor or a foot creme on my feet before slipping on cotton socks and pad around my apartment. But disposable moist socks… let’s just say my expectations were low.

Here are the details on the socks:
SpaSensials socks are made of a proprietary, stretchable nonwoven material infused with aloe, jojoba and vitamins A, B5 and E, and are clinically proven to soothe and deeply moisturize dry, cracked skin.

So. Since my pedi embargo is still in full effect, I have to manage my own feet that are used to biweekly sloughing/moisturization at a salon. I slipped on the SpaSensials socks post shower, after I’d pumiced my tootsies as much as I could without slipping and falling. Beauty can be perilous, right? Why is it so DIFFICULT to remain standing while scrubbing feet? Maybe I need one of those shower seats very popular with grannies the world over. Anyway. I dried off and put on the socks for about an hour. This is important. The box recommends you wear them at least 15 minutes, I’m gonna go ahead and say you’ll see absolute results if you wear them for at least an hour. I’m not sure 15 minutes is enough for anyone. I checked out the situation after 20 minutes and my feet were better textured, but not velvety. It’s the holiday season, I want velvety feet. An hour after removing and tossing the socks, I’m happy to report that my feet were indeed soft and smooth. The gauntlet has been thrown down, Niu Nails II. $11.99 for six pairs of socks. SpaSensials also makes gloves that do the same thing. Happy Thursday!
