Gena Feet To Go – The Perfect Pedicure Kit

I'll start by saying that I wanted to write this post earlier but everything I've been doing today is in slow-motion as I'm having the worst case of sore muscles after working out – eva! I've mentioned that I've started going to the gym and now my entire body aches, especially my legs. I can barely walk but I do agree that sore muscles are a happy type of pain .I planned on doing the entire pedicure thing for this post but I feel so sore that I cannot even bend down. Not going to let that stop me – I've prepared a review of a fabulous pedicure kit that has transformed my feet – and we're in the midst of winter. Gena Feet To Go isn't something I've heard before but I must say that this rather unknown brand has transformed my tootsies to the point when I'm looking forward to do pedicures and to take care of them. I don't know about you but I'm not the biggest fan of feet – they're down there and they're obviously necessary as evolution has kept a pair on us all but they're far from glamorous.Then I got this kit – sure, tiny footsies on the plastic bag are a cute touch. As childish as it is, that's the main reason why I was interested to look at the products inside the bag. You get 5 x 59ml bottles of different products + a foot file (shaped as a tiny foot! aww…). I have three favorites from this kit which I'll purchase full size when I go through these travel size bottles. By the way, these tiny bottles are very handy and heavenly for travel. 

Zapoceti cu tako sto cu reci da sam namjeravala objaviti ovaj post ranije no sve sto danas radim je kao na usporenom snimku posto imam najgoru upalu misica – ikada! Spomenula sam vam kako sam pocela ici u teretanu i vjezbati a sada me cijelo tijelo boli, sa posebnim naglaskom na upalu misica nogu. Hodanje je prilicno zahtjevno i sigurna sam da izgledam komicno ali tek sada razumijem sta je znacilo kada bi mi drugi govorili da se raduju bolu od upale misica nakon treninga. Za ovaj post sam namjeravala da prezentujem cjelokupno pedikir iskustvo ali savijanje i pomjeranje na odredjeni nacin je previse bolno tako da cu ovaj put preskociti prezentaciju ali nastavljamo sa postom. Danasnja tema je set proizvoda za pedikir koji mi je bukvalno transformisao stopala – imajte na umu da smo u sred zime (period kada je brijanje naporno a kamoli pedikir). Gena Feet To Go set mi nije poznat od ranije ali priznajem da je ovaj relativno underground brend odusevio jer mi stopala nikada ljepse nisu izgledala te se sada cak radujem koristenju ovih proizvoda na njima. Ne znam za vas ali ja nisam posebno veliki fan stopala – iz ociglednih razloga ih je evolucija zadrzala na nama ali su daleko od necega glamuroznog. Potom je ovaj mali putni set ipak uveliko promijenio moje misljenje. Koliko god djetinjasto bilo, priznati cu vam da su mala stopalca na plasticnom neseseru glavni razlog zbog kojeg sam pozeljela istraziti unutrasnjost i proizvode. Unutar nesesera dobijete 5 bocica od po 59ml i radi se o pet razlicitih proizvoda + turpija (u obliku malog stopala! aww…). Iz ovog seta su se izdvojila tri favorita koja cu kupiti u full size velikim pakovanjima nakon sto potrosim putna. Usput receno, mini pakovanja uistinu jesu zgodna za putovanja tako da ce i bocice ostati kod mene za narednu priliku.


My favorite product from the kit is the Gena Pedi Care Sloughing Lotion (with Peppermint Oil). Now, it works in a disgusting but very effective way so do feel warned. You can use it on your feet, elbows, knees or hands – it's universally acceptable to be used on rough skin areas. Then you massage it in (and you do need a tiny blob). It requires a minute or two of massaging until the skin fully absorbs it/it dries off and then rough skin sloughs off along with the lotion as you keep on massaging it. Gross, I know but extremely effective! You don't need to wait for results as you get them before your own eyes – that's what sets this lotion apart from any other rough skin treatments. I have used it on my feet and elbows and it works wonders. My warmest recommendation for this fella. My second favorite is the Gena Pedi Soft Foot & Leg Lotion (with Fruit Extracts) because it has such an ideal consistency that doesn't bother me and feels suiting for skin of the foot to be applied on. No greasy feeling, no residue, no sticky aftermath – it sinks in perfectly and makes feet incredibly smooth! It doesn't have a specific scent to it but I don't care as we're approaching my third favorite. Gena Pedi Septic Foot Spray (with Eucalyptus & Tea Tree Oil) is probably the only spray I feel comfortable spritzing on my feet. It's geared to preventing odor and bacteria and it also cools down hot, tired feet. It has a ‘antibacterial’ type of smell but when applied after the foot & leg lotion – footsies smell ah-mazing! And feel amazing as they're the softest they've ever been.

Omiljeni proizvod iz ovog seta je Gena Pedi Care losion za uklanjanje zadebljale koze (sa uljem paprene metvice). Upozoriti cu vas da radi na prilicno bljakast nacin ali je izuzetno efektan. Mozete ga koristiti na svim dijelovima tijela gdje je koza zadebljana (stopala, laktovi, koljena, ruke itd.). Umasirate jako malu kolicinu losiona npr.u pete i masirate barem minutu-dvije dok se losion osusi/upije u kozu. Potom se stvaraju male kuglice losiona koje sa sobom odnose zadebljalu kozu kako nastavljate sa masiranjem. Znam da je prilicno bljak sto uopste pisem o ovome ali toliko mi je dobre rezultate ovaj losion pruzio da to nisam mogla zadrzati za sebe. Ono po cemu se losion razlikuje od ostalih proizvoda za ovu svrhu jeste sto daje trenutne rezultate – stopala i laktovi na kojim sam ga koristila nikada nisu bili meksi, gladji i ljepsi. Najiskrenije preporuke idu upravo za njega. Moj drugi favorit je Gena Pedi Soft losion za stopala i noge (sa vocnim ekstraktima) jer je idealne konzistencije koja mi ne smeta i bas kao da je radjena specificno za kozu stopala. Nema masnog osjecaja, bilo kakvih tragova, ljepljivosti – savrseno se upija i cini stopala nevjerovatno mekanim! Nije odredjenog mirisa sto mi ne smeta jer dolazimo do mog treceg favorita. Gena Pedi Septic sprej za stopala (sa eukaliptusom i uljem cajevca) je vjerovatno jedini sprej koji mi nije neprijatno koristiti na stopalima. Konkretno je namijenjen uklanjanju neprijatnih mirisa i bakterija ali takodjer hladi umorna, zagrijana stopala. Posjeduje blago ‘antibakterijski’ tip mirisa ali kada ga nanesem nakon losiona za stopala i noge – miris koji kreiraju je identican onom iz profesionalnih salona, kakvi su i rezultati! 


These three have become my essentials when feet are in question and I don't intend on changing them as I think they'll be perfect for summer sandal season. What's also perfect especially for summer is the Gena Pedi Ice Deep Cooling Gel (with Eucalyptus & Menthol). This icy blue gel is actually rather mild and is ideal for people who don't prefer heavy, thick creams on their feet. The cooling sensation, however, isn't as powerful as I hoped for. It's just a light and refreshing foot gel but nothing revolutionary. Then we have the Gena Pedi Soak Foot Bath (with Tea Tree Oil) which really comes handy after more than 12 working hours spent on my feet. I just add a few blobs into my foot soaking ‘bowl’ I use and it foams up nicely, smells relaxing and makes feet unbelievably soft. It actually is a perfect prep before using a foot file. I do love this foot bath buy I alternate it with bath salts. And that;s why I say that I have three favorites – the sloughing lotion, foot & leg lotion and the foot spray. They're kinda revolutionary and hard to replace while the cooling gel and foot bath (despite being lovely) aren't irreplaceable. The Gena foot file is actually effective but I prefer my good, old pumice stone – some habits die hard. And now, if you'll excuse me, I'll attempt painting my nails with one of the most gorgeous nail polishes around – the magical China Glaze Ruby Pumps (pictured below).


Ova tri proizvoda su postala nezamjenljiva za mene kada je u pitanju njega stopala i ne namjeravam da ih mijenjam posto mislim da ce mi biti od neprocjenjive vrijednosti cim stigne sezona otvorene obuce. Ono sto je narocito namijenjeno i zgodno za koristenjem tokom ljeta je Gena Pedi Ice doboko hladeci gel (sa eukaliptusom i mentolom). Gel hladno plave boje je ustvari prilicno blag i idealan za osobe koje ne vole koristiti teske kreme i mazalice na svojim stopalima. Ipak, nije dovoljno hladeceg efekta koliko bih ja zeljela. Jednostavno je lagan i osvjezavajuci gel no nista revolucionarno. Potom imamo Gena Pedi Soak kupku za stopala (sa uljem cajevca) koja je stvarno raj nakon vise od 12 radnih sati provedenih na nogama. Samo dodam par kapi gelaste kupke u jednu ‘posudu’ ili kako se kod nas kaze skaf u kojem inace odrzavam sesije opustanja umornih stopala. Kupka lijepo pjeni, mirise opustajuce i lijepo omeksa kozu. Takodjer stopala bas lijepo pripremi za daljnji tretman. Nekada koristim nju a nekada mirisljave soli. Upravo zato sam vam napisala da imam tri favorita (losion za uklanjanje zadebljale koze, losion za noge i stopala i sprej za stopala). Oni su mi bas nezamjenljivi i donekle revolucionarni jer mi nista prije njih nije dalo ovako dobre rezultate. Mislim da bih mogla pronaci zamjenu za hladeci gel i kupku dok je i turpija za stopala jako dobra ali preferiram ‘starinski’ kamen za pete. Ovaj set za pedikir mozete kupiti kod Lilocosmetics Kakanj (za citateljice iz BiH) po cijeni od 22,75KM. Ovisno o tome koliko ste spremne investirati u ovakvo nesto ce ovisiti i to da li vam se ovaj set isplati kupiti. Ako vas konkretno zanima jedan proizvod, ohrabrujem vas da kontaktirate navedenu Facebook stranicu i u poruci posaljete upit za cijenu. A sada oprostite mi, idem pokusati nalakirati nokte sa China Glaze Ruby Slippers lakom za nokte (fotka ispod) – pravi je ljepotan!
