One of my favorite things to do in NYC is to spa with my girlfriends.

Just in time for the cool weather when we all start to cram our feet into stuffy boots and shoes, comes Verikira Naturals Fresh Feet Foot Creme ($26). It’s a lot greasier than L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream ($25), which I’ve previously used and it’s blended with essential oils of Patchouli, Tea Tree, Thyme, Basil, … Continue reading Verikira Naturals Fresh Feet Foot Creme
