The Secret to Soft Summer Feet

I hate shoes.

There, I said it.

To all you strappy sandal gals and stiletto doo-dad fans, I just don't get the shoe obsession. Sure, there are some cute pairs out there, but really, what's better than the comfort of simply going barefoot?

Nothing. Right now, while you're reading this, stretch out and wiggle your toes. Aaaaah.

I work at a dental office and the first thing I do when the last patient leaves is kick off my heels. Of course, there is a downside to all this gallivanting around with naked feet.

You know, apart from the occasional stray piece of used dental floss that makes its way between your bare toes.

KIDDING! We're a sparkly clean pediatric dental office. Really.

Nothing like a little black carpet to make pasty legs seem even whiter.
Look away, everyone, before you're blinded! 

And, please, do ignore all those bits and specks you see all over the carpet. I really was kidding about the dental floss. I promise.

Galavanting around barefoot can leave your feet looking and feeling slightly short of polished.

When Dove sent me their new VisibleCare Body Wash, I hoped it would live up to all the promising things I'd heard.

Looks like any other body wash, right?

But, it's different.

You saw the yucky feet photos above. I was thrilled to see this!

I faithfully used the Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash daily, focusing especially on my feet. I even left it on extra long - applying the body wash to my feet first, then taking care of everything else like conditioning my hair and shaving my legs. I like to think that this gave Dove extra time to work its magic.

Creamery. Ooooh.

TMI?

Alternate photo caption: My brother would never have loaned me his expensive Canon DSLR lens if he'd known I was going to bring it in the shower! He doesn't read my blog though.

Really, how do you review a body wash and not take a photo in the shower? You have to show that you actually did try the product, don't cha' think? At least the drain isn't full of hair.

After a week of using the Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash, my feet did seem to be more smooth. I have been using it as my go-to body wash for almost a month now and LOVE it. Even my heels have softened up.

Here I am at a wedding we attended recently. Do my feet look so silky and pretty? I suppose it's hard to tell from a photo, plus I'd been romping around in the dirt all day. Fancy wedding sandals be darned!

Although I'm not quite ready to stop harassing my husband for foot rubs, (sorry, Sexy Nerd) I do think Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash is a worthy addition to my daily beauty routine. Really, why wouldn't I use it? I'm going to use body wash every day anyway, so I might as well use one that leaves me visibly softer from neck to toe. Plus, it comes in a huge bottle with enough body wash to last you forever so you really get your money's worth. I'll definitely be buying it again in the future!

You didn't really think I would end this post without some mention of the price, did you? I love a deal!
