REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Get Summer Ready with Barielle Hand and Foot Care! - ENDS 5/27 (CLOSED)

Are your hands and feet Summer Ready?

Summer may not be officially here yet, but most states are experiencing some Summer type weather with temperatures in the 70's and 80's. Somehow, we seemed to go right from winter to summer in no time flat. And I don't know about you, but my hands and feet need a little pampering, especially after a long, dreary winter of hiding under gloves and boots!

Chipped, split and dull nails on dry hands, along with dry, cracked heels and feet are not summer pretty ladies, especially while wearing skin-baring fashions and strappy sandals where people will be noticing your hands and feet.  So when I was contacted to review some hand and foot products by a company called Barielle, I jumped at the chance to get my own hands and feet summer ready.

Introducing Barielle!
Barielle is a company globally regarded as a pioneer in nail, hand and foot care – once sold at only the most exclusive stores – and now available at Offering a range of high-performance skin, nail and foot care products at affordable prices, Barielle addresses the individual, real-life needs of nails, hands, and feet. And what’s even better, Barielle has stood apart as the absolute first to practice a progressive “three-free” philosophy: absolutely none of Barielle’s products contain formaldehyde, toluene, or dibutyl phthalate (DBP) -- chemicals suspected to be harmful and found in many beauty products. Instead Barielle uses safe, effective and natural alternatives, such as keratin, proteins, vitamins and oil and plant extracts.

I was sent for review the Barielle Nail Strengthener Cream ($10), which is their most popular, ground-breaking product for nail treatment. Since I work with my hands a lot, my nails are usually a mess. But the Barielle Nail Strengthener Cream really helped them look healthy. The Barielle Nail Strengthener Cream helps strengthen nails to resist splits, peels and breaks. It can used daily over nail polish or on bare nails to maintain healthy nails and you should see a noticeable improvement in 3-4 weeks.

I was also sent the Barielle Total Foot Care Cream ($12) which won an Allure Best of Beauty Award.  This luxurious conditioning cream helps eliminate calluses and cracks, but contains NO harsh peeling ingredients, acids, or camphor.  I love this cream.  It left my feet feeling soft and silky and definitely summer ready for those sandals.

I was also sent a "Shades by Barielle" Nail Polish ($8) to review. This salon-strength formula polish is completely free of the chemicals dibutyl phthalate, toluene and formaldehyde and it billed as being pregnancy safe. I personally like when nail polish has a high-shine gloss and drys fast and "Shades by Barielle" Nail Polish passed on both tests.
