A Bionic Pedicure Process with Barielle

by Bionic Beauty on 04.Aug.2009 · 4 comments

Even though I use my PedEgg at least twice a month, I still end up needing some extra scrubbing and foot care during my at-home pedicures. For my last few pedi’s, I’ve been testing out a few lovely Barielle products.

Here’s my current at-home pedicure process…

After using my PedEgg, I trim my toe nails straight across and file any jagged edges. Then I grab the Barielle 60 Second Mani-Pedi. 60 Second is a salt scrub in an oil based. It’s scented with bright citrus. I recommend sitting over your kitchen sink or on the floor in your bathtub during this portion. Scoop out a dollop of 60 Second and take your time scrubbing down your feet, ankles, heels, and nail cuticles. While you’re at it, go ahead and do your hands too! And I found this scrub works great on dry knees or elbows too.

Rinse well. There will still be an amount of oil left on your hands and feet but it sinks in quickly. Be VERY careful walking though. The oil combined with smooth feet can cause you to slip!

Now go grab some cotton or bamboo socks that you’ll use later. I love this next step- squeeze out a dime sized amount of Barielle’s Intensive Foot Cream with Deep Sea Mud. Apply to one foot by massaging thoroughly into your skin. Cover with a sock. And repeat on your other foot and hands.

Leave the socks on overnight or as long as possible. When my knees and elbows get extra dry, I even use the Intensive Foot Cream on them with perfect results!

Overall, I love these two products. They are affordable for the small amount you use, so they’ll last a good long time and they actually DO what they promise and do it well.

Sounds devine! I have found that having a pool has been doing wonders to the bottom of my feet. They seldom get rough now, which I love, and since I am unemployed this summer pedis are out of the question for me!

I love the 60 Second Mani-Pedi, I use it weekly.
I have not tried the Intensive Foot Cream with Deep Sea Mud yet!

Hi Jami,

I have the yes to carrots product that is similar to the 60 second mani-pedi.

I love it, but the ingredients look so simple when you look inside.
So i wanted to know since you are the queen of oils (esp. jojoba!),
do you think this is something that can be whipped up in the kitchen?

Hey Sherry, I definitely think you could make this homemade!
Personally, and off the top of my head, here’s what I would do…

2 tbsp Sea Salt or the Raw Sugar (the bigger grainy variety)
2 tbsp Jojoba oil
A few drops of Tea Tree Oil (for the anti-fungal properties it has)
A few drops of peppermint oil (to help tired tootsies)
Mix it all together and scrub away. :)

I’d also only mix enough for 1 or 2 scrubs at a time. For a detox foot scrub you could swap in Epsom Salts for the salt/sugar. Epsom salts are great for drawing out toxins. They also work great in the bathtub for a full body soak!
