Favorite Product #2

When I last told you about Burt, I said he was my NEW favorite product. Well, let me just say, that while Burt is new to the family here in the Stumbling household, he is not necessarily my absolute favorite. Afterall, a good mother loves all of her children the same, right?

I have many favorite products and I've decided to tell you about them one at a time as my flighty, little whims see fit. Today, I would like to recommend to you something that I don't know how I ever lived without. Or how my husband, sheets and socks ever lived without, for that matter.

We'll call this little cutie, "Helio". Heel of Approval: Cracked Heel Treatment is a gooey tub of pure footlovin' from the shelves of Bath & Body Works. Helio resides on my nightstand next to my Burt's Bees Lip Balm (for another time, dear) and my Puff's Plus w/ lotion (is there any other?) tissue box. Combine Helio with a cozy pair of fuzzy, cotton socks and you have the makings for a night of pure, sizzlin'...

okay, I wanted to say something really sensual here, but what can one say about scratchy, cracked and callous heels that are so gnarly that they literally make noise when putting socks on?

Share too much, did I? Umm, okay...sorry, 'bout that.

Anyhoo, hence the absence of nylon socks in my drawer or evenings of playing footsie with my husband. But when Helio and I get together for 3 or 4 nights in a row, all that changes. I can literally see a difference after the first night. It's not long before my heels - and the rest of my feet, for that matter - are back to their sandal-worthy selves.

Bath & Body Works, as always, is mighty proud of their products so Helio is a bit much (if you ask me and since you're reading this, you did) at $15.00 for 4 oz., but a little does go a long way. Only because of price, and not performance, do I give Helio 4 out of 5 Mommy Kisses!

I am going to get me some HELIO! I have the worst heels. Seriously. I LOVED reading your blog and all your inspiration. Thanks!

I was just talking last night about the need to pay more attention to our heels. Too many women in Arizona don't do it and in the land of the flip flop, well, it just ain't pretty!

I do the same thing at night, only with Aquafore. See? I knew we were soul sisters!

ROTFL! The description of your heels...*choking on tears*...I can totally relate! My mom told me to use Crisco. Rub it in, put on some super-sexy SOCKS and let it work its magic. Cheap and gives you fabulous results. Although, I do sometimes get the urge to bake cookies after I use it...
