Satin Feet Saturday

Wendy has her own Mary Kay lady. One she has never seen or even talked to. The best of all worlds, she places her order via the internet, pays with a credit card, and voila! A few days later her goods are dangling from the knob of the screened door in the carport. No personal interaction necessary.

I don't know about other people's experience, but the Mary Kay ladies I've come in contact with are kinda scary. Maybe it's just salespeople in general that make me feel oogie. They are always trying to sell something. Doh. And while I usually like perky people, Mary Kay ladies seem to have more of a disturbingly crazy perky air rather than a regular perky air.

(I suddenly wonder if any Mary Kay ladies read my blog. If so, no offense intended. We need people like you. I just prefer you at a distance. As I'm sure you would me.)

They sell a product called Satin Hands Pampering Set. We're all about the pampering, dontcha know. The stuff is great for hands, but it also is heavenly for feet.

It's a four product process. First a thick oily substance reminiscent of heavy pink vasoline is smeared on, followed by a scrubbing with thick gritty cream. Before rinsing, a cleansing gel is applied. After rinsing with warm water and drying with a fluffy soft towel, moisturizing cream from the fourth tube is massaged in.

This process leaves feet and hands as soft and smooth as a baby's bottom. I've never met a woman whose feet didn't deserve such pleasure.

Don't yours?

The neighbor next door that I've blogged about, who's just plain nuts, is a MaryKay lady! LOL

Satin Hands stuff is GOOD! We've used it on our hands, but never on our feet. Hmmm, think it's time to do that! Thanks for the idea !(and duh, why didn't we think of it sooner?!?!)

Well, there is that pink cadillac dangling at the end of the stick, so that may account for some of the perkiness. But I know what you mean: Avon, Mary Kay, Amway--kind of cult-like actually.

Why, yes, yes, they do.

I am addicted to Satin Hands! I, like you, fear Mary Kary ladies and I work with two of them. Yep, a small 7 person office and 2 of them are pod people.

I found my way here through Writing Womyn and have really enjoyed reading your entries! I just wanted to say you're brilliant for thinking of using Satin Hands on your feet; I'm trying that tonight. Oh, and Mary Kay ladies scare the bejeebers out of me, too.

Hi! Yep, I'll admit it! I'm one of those perky Mary Kay ladies you talk about. Even my hubby's favorite color is now pink! & yes, I love the Satin Hands & use it on my feet too! Love all the products, too! Have you tried the Micro-derm yet? Have Wendy's MK lady drop some off for you!

I can see from the outside looking in, we seem 'cult-like' (Smiles John!) but we love our products & our company! Pink Hugs to all! Cindy
