Luckily, I’m a pretty decent Bingo player and won a little product designed to help these aching feet of mine. Ok, I’ll back up and explain. A good friend of BD hosted a Bingo Birthday Brunch and the prizes were donated from her cousin – moonlighting as an Avon representative. So there we were. One game in and Bingo! I got to select my winnings from that great bag of Avon prizes. I was wearing my gold rhinestone-encrusted sandals that J & I both bought last summer (shout-out to Mandees in Brighton Beach). As much as I love, I could not ignore the patches of rough skin left by these sandals. So I had to put down the eyeshadow palettes and sparkly lip glosses (until a few rounds later) and opt for the tube of Foot Works: Therapeutic Cracked Heel Relief Cream.
I chose my winnings wisely. The cream worked like a charm. It made the bottoms of my feet smooth and tingly so you know it’s working. And the true test was it kept my heels soft even after the lotion dried. I was tempted to throw it in my purse and use it as a hand cream, though I did not, knowing the stares I would get from fellow subway passengers. (Editor’s tip: Works best in conjunction with a Ped Egg). So there you have it. Avon wins again. If only everywhere we go, our skills (and feet) could be rewarded with Avon.
