Facebook Flash Sale on Thursday, April 28 at 7pmFacebook Flash Sale April 28th

Mark your calendars for the next Flash Sale on Thursday, April 28 @ 7pm.

Just in time to recoup from the end of Tax season, pick Mom up something nice for Mother’s Day and to celebrate my Shoopy. He was born April 11, 1928.

I decided we would have 28 items on the 28th in his memory.

How this works: I will post a picture and description on our Facebook page every few minutes and the first person to say IT’S MINE! wins the item.

All items must be paid for and picked up by Friday, May 6th. If the first person doesn’t pick up their item by Friday then the next person wins the item.

Pumpkin Peel Off Mask is a rich source of antioxidants and enzymes that act like Alpha-Hydroxy Acids.pumpkin

  • Pumpkin also contains more than 100 beneficial nutrients, which may be used to help reverse the signs of aging.
  • Alpha-Hydroxy Acids have been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal.

Whitening Peel Off Mask is intended for all colors and contains no hydroquinone, which is known to have irritant effects.

  • The anti-oxidant activity neutralizes free radicals and slows skin ageing.
  • The mask inhibits melanin formation, preventing the skin from turning dark in the sunlight.

Tigerlily Summer feet foot peel is an amazing, simple way to remove all the dead skin and calluses from your feet. Did you know you have more dead skin cells on your feet than anywhere else on your body? Simply put on the booties and relax for one hour. After one hour, remove the plastic booties and wash feet with soap and water. The dead skin cells will begin to peel about 3-7 days after initial application. You will be amazed at the results and your feet will be perfect for summer (sandal season) or anytime!

Don’t have time to do this treatment at home? Through the month of April, you can add it to any Facial for just the cost of the Peel – $25 (normally a $35 add on).

*Just as a side note, the peeling process on your feet could take up to 14 days. Do not remove skin forcibly! The peeling will begin around day 3 and could last up to 7 days. So please plan accordingly.

There are 2 reasons why Yoga Sandals® are fabulous!

The first being they are perfect sandals to wear for pedicures. You toes are separated so you just put these on right before the polish and you can walk out the door right away. No more messed up polish, smudges or waiting around for them to dry! The 2nd reason is they are good for your feet!

Why wear Yoga Sandals®

The Original Yoga SandalsA young foot is agile and toes are evenly spread. As we grow, years of cramming feet in to unsuitable, narrow shoes begins to take its toll. Feet lose their young, agile shape and flexibility and when we walk the bones of our feet jam together. As a result, our natural balance and body alignment is lost. Without mobility in the bones of our feet several foot disorders such as Osteo-Arthritis, hammer toes, bunions and poor circulation can occur.

Yoga Sandals® work to alleviate these potential problems by spreading the toes and retraining the feet. As the foot bones regain mobility, balance and body alignment are restored and over all wellness is increased.

Expert opinion and customer testimonials show that Yoga Sandals® help offer the following benefits:

  • Increase foot strength
  • Relieve stress within the foot
  • Align toes
  • Correct postural alignment
  • Stretch leg muscles
  • Stretch Achilles tendon
  • Help Improve circulation
  • Improve and strengthen arches of the feet
  • Help alleviate hammertoe, bunions, plantar fasciitis and joint pain
  • Improve flexibility of the foot

I am on my 2nd pair! The first pair I had for about 8-10 years I think. I somehow lost them in the move so had to buy another pair.

PS- Once you have your feet all nice and pretty, give Jaidra a call and get a little henna work done to show off those feet!
