Spoiled Feet

I read in last month's Real Simple that Vaseline now has a product called "Foot Spa in a Jar". Not only am I (like Tina) a beauty product addict, but anything that caters to my feet is a must have. But I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I can't even find it online.

All I could find online was a recipe for a foot spa using Vaseline. I wonder if Real Simple misinterpreted this information. Here is the recipe...

Soothing Foot Exfoliator

Ingredients: * 2 tablespoons of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly * 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ginger shavings * 2 to 3 green tea/chamomile tea bags * 1 warm, dampened cloth * 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt * 1 vial of peppermint oil * metal bowl or basin (for foot soak)

Treatment: Mix entire sea salt packet, 1/2 vial of peppermint oil, 1/2 teaspoon of shaved ginger and Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in a tray provided. Drop tea bags and 1/2 vial of peppermint oil in basin of warm water. Allow tea to steep. Soak feet for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove feet, blot dry and apply exfoliating mixture. Lightly rub to remove dry skin and calluses. After 2 to 3 minutes, wipe excess off with a warm damp cloth. Pat dry. Discard leftover oil.

Ahhh sounds nice. I may have to try this out. Til then I am enjoying my new tube of Berts Bee's Coconut Foot Creme. Makes the feeties feel good and smell yummy.
