Denise Calhoun, Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant Review {Plus a Giveaway!}

Recently, I was given the opportunity to sample some products from Mary Kay.

Mary Kay is a company which needs no introduction. The company was founded by Mary Kay Ash in 1963, and since then has become a beauty powerhouse for all things skin care and color cosmetics-related! Just about every woman has tried or at least heard of Mary Kay products.

I knew it was meant to be when Denise Calhoun, Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant offered to let me review one of the products she sells. I was pregnant when she contacted me and desperately in need of pampering. I think she picked the best product possible for my ever-so-tired feet.

The item Denise sent to me is one of Mary Kay's newest products, the Limited Edition Mary Kay® Mint Blossom Pedicure Set. And since this set retails for just $24, it makes for a really great and affordable gift for anyone who likes to be pampered!

Here is the stock photo of my pedicure set. As you can see in the photo, the set includes the following:
  • 10 Mint Blossom™ Foot Fizzies
  • One 3 oz. Mint Blossom™ Icy Foot Gel
  • One Pumice Stone (in the cutest little foot shape!)
  • One Emery Board
  • One Coordinating Bag (making it perfect for gift-giving!)
  • When I got my pedicure set I was so excited to try it out. The only bummer was knowing that I couldn't reach my feet to use it! You see, I was waiting to finally pamper myself once I had my baby. But after a few days went by, I couldn't wait any longer! After going a full nine days past my due date, I knew it was time to call in the hubs.

    Luckily, I am married to one of the greatest guys in the world. He loves me enough to scrub and rub my swollen feet. :) And he even did so for an entire half hour! To get started, I grabbed the closest thing I could find to soak my feet. Yep, what you see below is my daughter's toy bassinet. We just won't tell her! I can always bleach it later. ha ha
    I wanted to take a picture of the Mint Blossom™ foot fizzies in action, and I was actually totally surprised when it instantly fizzed! It was like a little science experiment! The directions say to "Drop 2-3 Foot Fizzies into water for a burst of fizz. Soak feet 15 minutes for softer soles. Pat feet dry." I actually only used the one fizzy, and found it to suffice. It gave off the most pleasant aroma! The fizzies made the water smell amazing. I could smell a sweet, lemony fragrance, and hours later the scent remained on my skin.
    Next, my husband took the cute little foot-shaped pumice stone to my callouses. He rubbed them until my feet felt baby soft smooth. The pumice stone didn't hurt my skin, but was just the right amount of roughness to smooth off my feet.
    Finally, my husband rubbed the Mint Blossom™ Icy Foot Gel on my feet. It left them feeling cool and refreshed. This is just what I needed after 41+ weeks of pregnancy bliss. All in all, I fully recommend this pedicure set to my readers, as I completely loved it.
