Everything for me these days is about extreme efficiency, so the more I can do in the shortest amount of time is what reigns supreme. I like to give the impression, however, that I have put a decent amount of time into the way I look, dress, and smell, even though in reality I have none to spare. Luckily for me, I’ve brought four great products into the ring that have kept me smelling lovely the past few weeks with very little effort on my part. Enjoy my list, and I hope you find one that you love too!
Let’s start with the feet: I play tennis 1-2 times per week, and will be the first to tell you that my tennis shoes stink! If I’m really being honest about it, they could use some help so that anyone who is within a 10 foot radius of me taking them off doesn’t pass out. The ARM&HAMMER Shoe Refresher Spray ($5.99) gets rid of odor on contact and has sweat activated Fresh Guard Technology to continue to refresh shoes even after I’ve put my feet back into them. YAY!
These are definitely the prettiest insoles you will ever see! Every time you remove your shoes and look down at these fabulous Kickspos ($22/pair), they are sure to invoke a smile. I’ve had a few pairs of shoes that in the winter tend to slip off a bit, so the textured bottom of these tends to stays put without applying any sort of adhesive, and are also anti-microbial to cut down on that unwanted aroma I previously mentioned that tends to waft out of my shoes. Ew! Kickspos look beautiful, are super lightweight, and washable by hand too; what’s not to love? The print in the image above is “Take a Dip, ” but you can also select from ones with inspirational phrases, camo, floral, and animal prints.
type:A launched this past summer and is pretty much all I ever want from a deodorant. The sweat-activated formula is powered by 100% natural actives (no aluminum) along with safe synthetic ingredients and is certified as cruelty-free. Although it is in a tube, it has a satisfying “squeeze up” application to produce just the right amount of deodorant for the pits. The two new scents that I tried, The Achiever (wild mint, juniper, sea salt) and The Dreamer (white floral, ylang ylang, and jasmine), rethink what a natural deodorant should look like, smell like, and perform like. At $10 each (15% off your first purchase!), it is a premium, yet attainable product that you’ll enjoy applying, using, and going back to every day.
So now that you know that I need to treat my stinky feet on the regular to some scented goodness, I’d like to introduce you to Dial’s Complete 2-in-1 Beauty Bar lineup. My pits and my feet have been enjoying the benefits of a nice scrubbing to stay fresh and hydration-balanced, thanks to the 2 in 1 moisturizing & antibacterial properties of the bars. Currently available in the scents of Coconut Milk, Silk & Magnolia, and Manuka Honey (Mint & Shea coming soon!), the bars are only $2.99 for a 3-bar pack; what a steal!
