Ice Cream Sandwich

Bonjour mes amies!

I’m sorry for not posting in quite some time; it has simply been a very busy summer ever since finals ended. I do however have numerous product reviews that I’m looking forward to sharing with you for the rest of the summer, so without further ado, let’s get started!

I'm very excited about this post, because this is one of my all time favorite accessories! About a year ago, one of my aunt's went on a weekend trip with her girlfriends to a spa that specialized in "chocolate pedicures". They used cocoa products in the bath salts and lotions, and all the ladies were served chocolate sundaes while they had their pedicures. One of the products they sold there was something called an Ice Cream Sandwich foot pumice, and it is truly a treat!

There are two sides to the circular pumice; a pink and a white side. The pink side is the coarse side that is meant to rid your pieds of any rough spots and dry skin. Flip it over to the white side afterwards to use the finely grained, smooth texture to soften the skin. This is by far the best foot pumice ever! In my opinion, it works better than the "cheese grater" types, the wooden handle types with the black sandpaper looking material on one side, and regular foot pumices that are available. More than once during a pedicure have I been asked if I had just had a pedicure, because my feet were so soft because the Ice Cream Sandwich.

At $8 a pop it's not a bad buy at all, and it lasts for months! I would however recommend that you be very careful to dry it out well after showers. Leaving it in a wet and humid environment can cause it to eventually create some mold inside the porous side of the sandwich, but that advice goes for any other shower accessories (such as exfoliating body gloves).

Me! Bath is the company that makes this excellent product, and they feature very creative "treat inspired" products, such as Ice Cream bath balls, which I have yet to try, but would be willing to do to my love for the Ice Cream Sandwich. Here are just a few pictures from their website of their products...they look good enough to eat don't they?!

And for those of you who are concerned about animal testing (as you all know I am), Me! Bath does not test on animals! :)
