Today, we'll start at the bottom and work our way up!

Clarisonic Pedi Foot Transformation System - $230, clarisonic.ca; Back again with their amazing sonic technology, Clarisonic now has their Pedi Foot Transformation System that helps to transform rough, dry feet and toes into perfectly summer-ready condition. The kit includes the Clarisonic Pedi Device, Smoothing Disc, Wet/Dry Buffing Brush Head and three foot care products - Pedi-Buff, Pedi-Boost and Pedi-Balm

  • For daily use, use the Wet/Dry Buffing Brush head with Pedi-Buff (a physical exfoliator) to cleanse, exfoliate and buff dry and/or damaged feet. Finish with the non-slip Pedi-Balm (no more slipping and sliding around the bathroom floor!) to further hydrate and protect.
  • Twice a week, use the Smoothing Disc on dry feet before the Pedi-Buff & Wet/Dry Buffing Brush. At this point, you can further treat with the Pedi-Boost, which contains liquid exfoliants such as lactic & glycolic, bringing your level of foot care even beyond what physical exfoliants can offer. This will leave your feet feeling rejuvenated and renewed.

Tria Laser Precision - $345, triabeauty.ca; This is an amazing little wand that helps to banish unwanted hair from those curvy, sensitive areas with ease in the comfort of your own home! It was designed for those areas that are smaller and harder to target (read: bikini, underarms, upper lip & chin), leaving your skin silky and soft, and free from ingrown hairs, razor bumps and redness. It is important to note that the Tria Laser Precision features the same Canada Medical Device Licence diode laser technology offered in dermatologists offices, but with the comfort and convenience at home. How it works is a term called selective photothermolysis (sounds long, but once you read what it does, it makes sense :) Beams of laser energy are absorbed by the dark hair within the hair follicle and this is created into heat. The heat then disables the hair follicle and this prevents it from growing new hair. This is why it is important to have just freshly shaved the area, and to have not waxed - the hair has to be there to follow the trail down to the follicle! For optimal results, use every two weeks for approximately 3 months. Now, as with anything, there are some skin tones that it will work better one, as some hair that it is most effective to treat.

Kiss LED Gel Lamp - $34.99 and Kiss Everlasting Gel Polish - $11.99 each, Wal-Mart; Super high-gloss shine that is chip-resistant for up to 2 weeks! I absolutely love gel polishes for my nails, as they are weak and brittle, and regular polish usually chips in about 5 minutes. This system from Kiss is incredibly easy to use, and so cost-effective it makes me giddy! As someone who frequents the nail salons more often that I care to admit, my husband tells me an at-home option is pretty much necessary...le sigh. But in three easy steps, you can have nails in summer ready colours with literally no drying time, no dents or scratches. Once they are cured from the lamp, you are done! So I'm happy with that :)

  • Kiss Pro LED Gel Lamp cures your nail colour quickly and evenly. Your manicure is easily timed with the 30 second/60 timer built-in timer that turns off automatically
  • Kiss Everlasting Gel Polish comes in 15 individual colours including neutral, brights, shimmer and classic french manicure options. Top Coat and Base Coat are also needed, as well as the Prep & Cleanse.
  • Great option obviously for fingernails, but also fantastic for a super long-wearing pedicure as well!

Garnier Ombrelle Ultra-Light Advanced Weightless Body Lotion SPF 50+ - starting at $19.99, most major drugstores; Finally a sunblock that not only protects for up to 80 minutes in water, but has the most light-weight silky feel, it's almost as if you're not wearing any sunblock at all! Not sticky or greasy and no white film - which is challenging for such a high level of UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection. Also available, Weightless Face Lotion in SPF 30 & 60 with the same lightweight feel, makes it great for day to day, under makeup and also for oily/combo skin.

 

Such amazing products out for the summer to get our bodies ready to go and keep them looking their best!
