A little Southern Hospitality for your feet! | Mint Julep Sweet Tea Foot Soak, Sunday's Best Foot Creme, Honey Lemon Cuticle Salve, & Magnolia Foaming Sugar Scrub
"Feet sweatin’ like a prostitute in church?" When a company's marketing for foot powder is this cheeky, you know I'm in! I saw Southern Hospitality's pretty products on Instagram and I'd already found numerous products of intrigue on their site when I received an email from them asking if I'd be interested in sampling a few items. I was thrilled! After falling in love with everything I received and then buying MOAR, I'm excited to share these goodies with y'all!
Southern Hospitality was created by a southern podiatrist named Dr. Quinton Yeldell and his business savvy belle Krystel Ford. Together they created a charming line of natural preventative care products made in small batches using the highest quality ingredients from their Brooklyn, NY-based hub. Their products are foot-focused but are appropriate for use over the entire body.
Mint Julep Sweet Tea Foot Soak, $5.00 USD, combines peppermint oil and lavender topped off with spearmint. It really awakens your feet and leaves them feeling calm, cool, and collected long after you're done soaking. I purchased 4 more Sweet Tea Foot Soaks in a variety of scents (there are 12 in all) that very night! They are THAT good. I now really look forward to soaking my feet because it's extremely relaxing after a long day at work.
Sunday's Best Foot Creme, $8.00 USD for 2 oz, is a miracle worker. I have sweaty feet. Let's just put it out there. I never - EVER - put lotion on my feet because it never absorbs and just feels...wrong. I was dubious about slathering on a foot creme but this stuff is FANTASTICO. It's very thick, but once you begin to massage it into the skin, it absorbs quickly. I like to top mine off with a pair of cotton socks before bed and wake up to ultra soft, completely non-sweaty feet. I immediately started using this as a hand creme because I loved everything about it, and it soaks right into my hands as well. The Foot Creme can be used anywhere on the body and comes in 8 scents and 3 sizes. I love Sunday's Best. It smells so crisp and clean, like fresh laundry hot out of the dryer. It's huff-worthy.
Honey Lemon Cuticle Salve, $6.00 USD for .25 oz, comes in a sweet little slide-top tin that beckons to be put in your purse. It smells like you're having lemonade and sugar cookies in heaven. If you have cuticles, you should pick up a tin. ESPECIALLY if you love to change out your nail polish often. This cuticle salve hydrates my acetone-stressed cuticles like a champ and leaves them looking mint!
Magnolia Foaming Sugar Scrub, $7.00 USD for 2 oz, works double duty as a cleanser and an exfoliant, leaving your feet feeling soft and clean and ready for your prettiest pair of summer sandals. It comes in 8 scents and 2 sizes (2 oz and 12 oz). Magnolia smells fresh and floral with a touch of sweetness, much like a magnolia bloom.
sohofeet.com and ordered 4 different Sweet Tea Foot Soaks, 3 Sunday's Best Foot Cremes, and the Sunday's Best Foot Powder. If you'll notice, one of the soaks (Coconut!) is missing from the photo above because I used it the same day I received my order! It was awesome; it smelled just like fresh coconuts and left my feet singing Bob Marley songs. I bought the Foot Cremes to give as gifts because I loved mine so much.
I plan to keep soaking, exfoliating, moisturizing, and powdering with these incredibly amazing products throughout the year. The quality of the products, tremendous customer service, and the overall value of everything I've tried has been top notch and I highly recommend Southern Hospitality products. So much so, that I plan to give them out throughout the year as gifts!
Do I have any suggestions for the fine folks at Southern Hospitality?
1. PLEASE MAKE CANDLES!! Every scent is just gorgeous and if you guys started making candles, I would be your BFF. I mean, wouldn't a candle go nicely with the whole "sit back, relax, and soak your tired feet" vibe? I certainly think so! ;)
2. I wish you guys shipped internationally! I have many wonderful readers from around the globe who I just know would love your products as much as I do!
If you're in the continental US, or have a friend here who can order for you and then ship it over, you can peruse all of their offerings at sohofeet.com! If not, look for one of my favorite Southern Hospitality products in an international giveaway coming soon! ☺
