CND | PRO SKINCARE for Hands & Feet: Review
CND is well known for its VINYLUX Long Wear Polish and SHELLAC Gel Polish and in hopes of providing a more comprehensive mani-pedi experience at your favorite salon, the brand has launched a full-fledged vegan skincare range for your hands and feet. Aptly named CND PRO SKINCARE, this seven-piece collection includes everything you need for the most pampered hands and feet. To read more about each product, click......
CND PRO SKINCARE | Exfoliating Scrub & Exfoliating Activator for Hands
CND PRO SKINCARE | Exfoliating Scrub & Exfoliating Activator for Hands
CND | PRO SKINCARE Exfoliating Scrub for Hands - Step 1 (286 g):
A part of a two-step treatment, the CND PRO SKINCARE Exfoliating Scrub for Hands is a nourishing hand scrub formulated with shea butter and avocado oil. Lightly scattered with what I assume are citric acid crystals for a light exfoliation, the scrub has a light and refreshing cucumber scent. The formulation has a thick and rich consistency but it's not as scrubby as I would have hoped. As the scrub is massaged onto the hands, the citric acid crystals start to dissolve slightly. At this point, the scrub should be followed up with the Exfoliating Activator for Hands (see below).

Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Glyceryl Behenate, Cocamide MEA, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Parfum (Fragrance), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, Beta-Glucan, Glycerin, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Aqua/Water/Eau, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Tris(Tetramethylhydroxypiperidinol) Citrate, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Green 6 (CI 61565), Yellow 11 (CI 47000).

CND | PRO SKINCARE Exfoliating Activator for Hands - Step 2 (300 ml):
Intended to be massaged on top of the Exfoliating Scrub for Hands, the CND PRO SKINCARE Exfoliating Activator is essentially a light lotion that will completely dissolves the scrubbing particles of the hand scrub. Formulated with aloe juice, the Exfoliation Activator also has a lovely cucumber scent. After sitting on the skin for about 5 minutes, the activator needs to be washed off to reveal super soft and supple hands. 

Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Urea, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Isotridecyl Isononanoate, Polysorbate 60, Propylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Panthenol, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, Beta-Glucan, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Ceteareth-20, Sclerotium Gum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Triethanolamine, Parfum (Fragrance), Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Tetrasodium EDTA, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol.
CND PRO SKINCARE | Exfoliating Scrub & Exfoliating Activator for Hands
CND PRO SKINCARE | Intensive Hydration Treatment, Mineral Bath & Exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub for Feet
CND | PRO SKINCARE Mineral Bath for Feet (511 g):
Packed with chunky sea salt and nourishing rice bran oil, this is an energizing foot soak designed to relieve sore and tired feet. Infused with a heavy dose of eucalyptus and tea tree oil that give the bath a strong but refreshing herbal scent, the PRO SKINCARE Mineral Bath for Feet is, in my opinion, the epitome of relaxation and pampering. A teaspoon or so is all you need per foot bath so a little goes a long, long way.

Ingredients: Maris Sal/Sea Salt/Sel Marin, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Laureth-4, Silica, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, Beta-Glucan, Glycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Cocoyl Sarcosine, Aqua/Water/Eau, Alcohol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Tris (Tetramethylhydroxypiperidinol) Citrate, Limonene, Green 6 (CI 61565), Yellow 11 (CI 47000).

CND | PRO SKINCARE Exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub for Feet (511 g):
Designed as a follow-up to the Mineral Bath for Feet, the CND PRO SKINCARE Exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub for Feet is formulated with Epsom salt, sea salt, and sunflower oil. With a light cucumber scent, the scrub settles quite a bit so it needs to be well-stirred before each use. Unlike the Exfoliating Scrub for Hands, the Exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub for Feet is packed to the brim with scrubby particles that will really give your skin a thorough polish. The formulation washes off very nicely, leaving behind a lightly nourishing but non-greasy residue.

Ingredients: Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Silica, Parfum (Fragrance), Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, Beta-Glucan, Maris Sal/Sea Salt/Sel Marin, Glycerin, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Aqua/Water/Eau, Alcohol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Tris(Tetramethylhydroxypiperidinol) Citrate, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Green 6 (CI 61565), Yellow 11 (CI 47000).

CND | PRO SKINCARE Intensive Hydration Treatment for Feet (443 ml):
A nourishing cream for the feet, the CND PRO SKINCARE Intensive Hydration Treatment is made with shea butter, avocado oil, and aloe juice. The formulation has a thick and rich consistency but it blends easily onto the skin, providing instant nourishment without feeling greasy or heavy. Again, the product has a super calming cucumber scent, which really elevates the entire spa experience.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau, Cetearyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Myristate, Lactic Acid, Urea, Cetyl Ricinoleate, Polysorbate 60, Sodium Hydroxide, Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Propylene Glycol, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, Beta-Glucan, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Panthenol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Allantoin, Glycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Parfum (Fragrance), Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Methyl 2-Octynoate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

Formulated with lots of humectants (ex. urea, alpha-glucan oligosaccharide, beta-glucan), the Callus Smoother has a viscous gel consistency.

So if you are more of a DIY, stay-at-home self-pampering kind of person like me, you can also pick up a few of these items for use at home!

Availability:
The CND PRO SKINCARE range is available as a salon service nationwide. Visit the salon locator on CND.com. For salons and professionals, visit the distributor locator on CND.com
