Sooth tired and under nourished feet with Repêchage’s Sea Spa Foot Cream.

Made with seaweed, shea butter, rosemary, spearmint, and peppermint extracts the Sea Spa Foot Cream will not only have your feet feeling smooth but smelling so fresh that you will feel on vacation!

When you come home after a long day at work, running around with the kids, or dancing the night away apply cream evenly over your entire foot and lower ankle area until fully absorbed (for extra absorbency put on socks to keep the moisturizer locked in).

  •  Your feet will instantly begin to feel the benefits of Repêchage’s enriched formula as the calming smells play with your senses and the vitamins sooth your aching muscles. After a weeks worth of applications I could actually see the difference in my skin, my feet looked much more radiant and the dry skin began to feel softer. Definitely worth the wait!

Ingredients (benefits) in the foot cream include:

  • Tea Tree Oil – known to be used as an antiseptic tea tree oil has been shown to contain anti-microbial activity protecting against bacteria.
  • Horse Chestnut – a source of Vitamin K improves circulation.
  • Rosemary Oil – Revives skin and has been used for its natural anti-microbial properties.

Hand Cream Moisturizing Celebrities

13 Jul

Hand and Nail Therapy

  Wonder how Hollywood celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Sarah Jessica Parker keep their hands and nails perfectly nourished?

Mystery solved: Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand and Nail Therapy cream.


Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand and Nail Therapy cream was discovered during the seventies after horse owners realized the ingredients that they were applying to their horses hoofs were also making their own hands become softer. Quick and sometimes unbelievable results were seen with vital nutrients which protect and nourish skin and nails found in the hand cream.

For those of you that think that this might just be another beauty myth let me assure you it is not! I have test a lot of hand creams and never been this satisfied so quickly:

After having tested the Hand and Nail Therapy I could see the difference in my skin after just two weeks, my hands were much less dry and my nails looked healthier. This is one hand cream I will continue to purchase!

  • My skin went from extremely dry and hard to soft and nourished.
  • Almost immediately my nails began feeling stronger, the cream over time protects them against everyday damage.
  • The texture is non-greasy meaning once you have applied the cream to your hands you do not have to worry about touching your iPhone, laptops, etc and leaving fingerprints!
  • There is not a strong fragrance from Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand cream which personally I love as there is nothing worse for me than having my hands smell too strong, especially with an infant who loves sucking on my fingers!
  • The 6oz bottle, available online for $3.49, is a fantastic size for both keeping at home, in the car, or in your handbag and will keep your hands moisturized for months.

A cream that works… that celebrity beauties love… and that we can afford! Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand and Nail Therapy
