Every woman loves a good mani-pedi but lets be honest, when we head to the salon we don’t really pay attention to the skincare products the nail technicians put on our hands and feet. When we go for a facial we’re all about making sure the spa uses the best of the best skincare products so why shouldn’t it be the same for your hands and feet? OPI’s new professional spa line, OPI ProSpa focuses on hands and feet and is all about adding a little more luxury to the full mani-pedi experience. Because, if you’re paying special attention to your nails, you’ve got to show love to the body parts surrounding them!
World-renowned dermatologist Dr. Zena Gabriel partnered with the brand in the creation of the line, which borrows elements from facial care products. The skin on hands and feet takes a beating, and these extremities can show age and dryness, just like facial skin. Ingredients like Cupuaçu Butter and White Tea Extract help to moisturize and replenish skin while pampering clients to the max. The hands and feet are known to be two areas of the body prone to showing ageing and this new range will go a long way to helping prevent signs of premature ageing in the hands and feet.
The OPI ProSpa range offers 14 professional product for spa use but some of them also overlap for at-home use as well. The products in the range include OPI ProSpa Exfoliating Cuticle Cream, Protective Hand Serum, Micro-Exfoliating Hand Polish, Soothing Soak, Moisture Whip Massage Cream, Moisture Bonding Ceramide Spray, Nail & Cuticle Oil, and Intensive Callus Smoothing Balm.
I got the chance to try out the Protective Hand, Nail, & Cuticle Cream – a handbag-sized retail product from the range. This beautifully light cream is incredibly hydrating and gives you that spa feeling at home every time you apply it. With ultra-nourishing cupuacu and white tea, this 3-in-1 hand cream not only moisturises your skin along but also does wonders for your nails and cuticles. The cream is quick absorbing and doesn’t leave a residue on the skin and smells beautifully fresh and calming. I’m a huge fan of this fantastic hand cream and have started using it every evening before bed to give my hands a little TLC after a long hard day.
While I only got the opportunity to try out one product from the range, it’s easy to see that this new product line-up from OPI is indeed a real winner and I can’t wait to try out a manicure using the full range!
