THYMES Essentials Review and Giveaway!

I was very excited to open my mail the other day. I had just received a much needed and anticipated foot soak and foot cream by Thymes Essentials. I knew I would love this product as soon as I opened the envelope-not the actual product, but the envelope it was sent in. I was welcomed with the most wonderful scent ever! I actually did not use it right away. I wanted to wait until my feet were at their worst. I waited until I ran 6 miles in the cold pouring rain. 2 miles of this was running hard sprints up and down a steep hill. My feet were in need of some major care. I waited until the kids were in bed and I was ready to get started. I just put some of the foot powder in a tub of hot water and plunged my feet right in. This stuff is the best! I mean, it smells great, but I really felt it did something for my tired and achy feet!
This foot soak relieves stiffness, relieves minor aches and swelling with magnesium sulfate, while vegetable protein extract refreshes and deodorizes weary feet. It also softens rough dry skin.
This product did all of that and then some. After I soaked my feet for about 15 minutes I used the AHA Foot Cream. It’s nice and thick. I slathered it on and put on thick socks afterwards—my feet really need some work!
AHA Foot Cream- gently exfoliates with Thymes Essentials’ proprietary alpha hydroxyl acid fruit complex, while shea butter and sunflower oil moisturize, and tea tree oil and vegetable protein extract refresh and deodorize tired feet. It’s gentle and non-greasy absorption makes it convenient for everyday use.

About Thymes~As it has been since our beginning, we strive to create products that stand apart in their uncompromising quality and attention to detail. From the way they make your skin feel, to how they restore and brighten your outlook, to the way they look on your counter or dressing table. Our goal is to create collections that are as unique and complex as you are. With expressive, evocative scents that convey style, atmosphere, personality, feeling…with beautifully designed packaging. And safe, beneficial products you can truly feel good about using and giving. And because we know that one scent doesn’t fit all, we offer an eclectic gallery of collections for bath, body and home…each with its own distinctive aesthetic in fragrance, formula, attitude and look. Celebrating your individuality and helping you find rituals that leave you refreshed and renewed.
Over 200 hours of scientific and technical expertise goes into the development of each product. We use essential oils and natural, botanical ingredients whenever possible. Our products are meticulously tested for safety and effectiveness, by us and on us. But, never ever on animals
We would never put forth a product that we wouldn’t recommend to a friend, give to our sister or use ourselves. In every way, our products are our promise to you. A promise to always deliver the highest quality experience. To help you express your creativity and personality with fragrance. And to give you more ways to make the small details in life more fulfilling, rewarding and pleasurable.
This is just what I need. I am hard on my feet, as I teach group exercise for a living and run quite a few miles every week. Both of these products will get my feet looking and feeling normal again. I highly recommend this product and can’t wait to shop around to find more things I would love to try.
One lucky person will win the foot soak and the foot cream. Just in time to get those wintry feet in shape for spring time sandals!
