You should know that I hate my feet. There isn't anything wrong with them in particular. I just hate all feet! I hate looking at them, putting cream on them, ugghhhh! The thought of going for a pedicure or someone touching my feet totally freaks me out. So, a shoe, even is its a flip flop (of course I hate flip flops and sandals... ewww) that can exfoliate and soften my feet just by wearing the shoe?! Hooray!
So, I decided to visit the website. The name was memorable, even though I didn't write it down that day. "Flip Flop Spa" how decadent! I visited the website several times over about 4 weeks. The flip flops were a little expensive... if they were junk. If they work, its pretty reasonable. For around $60, you can have the deluxe type starter kit. For about $30 you can have a more basic kit. You can also purchase individual pieces to customize your experience.
I decided to try to save some money and pick and choose the most important pieces. It was a little difficult. The item descriptions were lacking, well, descriptions. The website was forcing me to depend on purchading the expensive kit in order to get eveything I needed, because there was no description of what I needed. Confused? Me too. So, here's the thing, I ordered everything in the deluxe kit separately, and it was cheaper than buying them together... a lot cheaper! Of course I was missing the carrying case (which you cannot buy separately, so I cannot include a price for that in my total), so technically they could say that case is worth $5 or $100-- see you really are saving if your buy the kit! wink wink.
Despite the flaws in pricing, website design, and item descriptions, I really really wanted to try this product, so I spent the money!!! (BTW I did email the company with all the complaints listed above. It seems to be a small start up company that maybe is unaware of these complaints. I have yet to hear back from them.)
My products arrived today. I was a little surprised when the FedEx truck pulled up, since I recieved no product shipment email. But they arrived safe and sound and packaged well. Here is everything straight out of the box:
Everything was in a very cute burlap case. The flip flops looked well made. The color was silver leopard and it was very sparkly! I do love sparkle! I didn't like the heel on the bottom of the flip flop, but since I haven't walked around in them yet, I'll not judge just yet. But aren't flip flops flat?
Here is the top:
And everything else:
Not sure if you can tell by the picture, I ordered an extra set of pads that I didn't need. Due to poor descriptions on the website, I didn't know the base pair came with a set of pads.
I intend to try out these flip flops over the next month. I'll review everything again then. But so far, everything looks VERY well made. If I saw this set in the store and was able to touch it, and try everything on, I would purchase it. The only flaw I see so far is the website.
But stay tuned because these feet...
... could use some work! Oh ewwwww did I just post a picture of my foot???!!!! I might have nightmares about this!
