There’s really nothing like a good pedicure. Whether you have your feet squeezed in heels for hours every day, work a physically demanding job, or just chase the kids around from morning to night—the regular hustle and bustle of life can really mess up your feet.
But let’s be real: we can’t always find the time or even money to treat ourselves to the high-quality self care we truly deserve. So what’s the solution? Do it yourself, of course! Here are 4 products under $40 that’ll give you a spa-quality pedicure from home.
True Glow by Conair Thermal Paraffin Bath, $39
Dipping any part of your body in hot wax sounds like a big fat no-no, but it’s actually the spa’s secret weapon to smooth, moisturized feet.
Of course, it’s not just some random thing done out of spontaneity! It has a name— a paraffin bath. It’s called this because you guessed it, it’s a bath made up of melted paraffin wax instead of bubbles and water.
This True Glow Thermal Paraffin Spa by Conair is the closest you’ll get to achieving spa-like results from the comfort of your home.
All you have to do is melt the wax, dip your feet in, take them out, and once the wax on your fully coated feet is cooled and solidified—peel it off to reveal some of the smoothest feet you ever did touch and feel!
Triple O Essential Mani Pedi Nudes Set, $22
A good nail polish is expensive, so building up a nice collection of everyday, high-quality lacquers for your at-home pedi can be a bit problematic in itself.
But no worries!
Triple O Polish has you covered with a collection of diverse, inexpensive, and high-quality shade options. Their Essential Nudes Set in particular is a must-have self-care staple!
Characterized by four different, melanin-friendly tones: Fon, a nice milk chocolate; Oranyan, a traditional beige; Bla, an ode to butterscotch; and Benin, a warm-toned nude. The coats are thick, fast-drying, and each bottle will give you 3-5 chip-free pedicures.
Lush Pink Peppermint Foot Cream, $30
Foot cream is undoubtedly one of the most underutilized beauty products because feet are incredibly easy to neglect if you’re used to someone else taking care of them for you.
However, crusty, dusty heels and toes aren’t ever a good look! So thankfully the good folks over at Lush are saving the day with their super soothing Pink Peppermint Foot Cream.
Blended with refreshing, cooling ingredients like peppermint and spearmint essential oils, this cream is a godsend for those of you struggling with dry, cracked, and irritated feet. All you have to do is apply right after you wash and dry your feet, and you’re good to go!
L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream, $30
Every good pedi-care set needs a high-end foot cream that solves your biggest issues by not just relieving them on the surface, but getting down to the root of the issue. This is why L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Foot Cream is your feet’s deeply nourishing best friend!
Formulated with shea butter (rich in omega 3 and 6), arnica extract which is known for its soothing properties, and relaxing lavender essential oils, this concentrated balm helps heal and repair dry or damaged skin more and more with each use.
