Duckish DIY Pedicure Kit -Review

bestdayblogger blog header



I kindly received DIY Pedicure Kit from for review purposes and I’m thrilled to tell you all about the company and the beautiful natural products that are offered. If you love natural products you will love this Canadian Brand. I’m so excited about this amazing opportunity because I love sharing products that I love and that I feel really passionate about. I love products like the ones offered at  because they made in Canada, are natural and have no chemicals. They are so good for the body, skin and ultimately help with relaxation and stress relief. 

2About Duckish Company

Welcome to Duckish Natural Skin Care, where you can get handmade, truly natural skin care products! Our range of bath and body products, including body butter, bath salts, lip balm, lotion sticks and diaper rash sticks, are all natural and made with organic ingredients whenever possible.

Duckish is owned and operated by Carolyn Crewe and Josh Beitel, partners in life and in business. Their goal is to help you avoid weird stuff in your skin care products. While Duckish officially opened for business in October 2015, the story began two years earlier, when Carolyn’s sister had a baby.

As a first-time aunt, Carolyn started looking a little closer at commonly used baby products. Upon seeing the questionable ingredients in most diaper rash creams, she decided to make something better, something with natural ingredients that was both effective and affordable. After a ton of ingredient and safety research, and an equal amount of experimentation, theDuckish Diaper Rash Stick was born. Picture the thick, white diaper rash cream you know, but get rid of the nasty ingredients and put it in a neat little mess-free application stick. Generous (and trusting!) friends tried it out on their babies and were more than pleased with the results. –DUCKISH 


The lovely DIY Pedicure Kit Offers beautiful Bath Salts which help detoxify, rejuvenate and soften hard-working feet. I love using the bath salts because my feet and skin feel so relaxed, hydrated and soothed. I also love the scent! Fresh and citrusy! Really beautiful bath salts and the citrus really helps wake up the senses.

What better way to put the day to bed than with a soak in your bathtub with our delicious-smelling citrus bath salts. Let this combination of Dead Sea salt, Himalayan pink salt and Epsom salts help you detox the pants off that long day and provide your skin with intense hydration. And if that’s not enough, sweet almond oil, organic coconut oil and our unique blend of essential oils moisturize skin and create a citrus smell that will delight. Each pouch of bath salts is about 4″(w) x 6″(h) and contains 115 grams. And with no synthetic dyes, fragrances, or preservatives, you get all of the bath-time fun, with no funny business. -DUCKISH 

IngredientsDead Sea Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, Epsom Salt, Sea Salt, Baking Soda, Sweet Almond Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil



 The Lava-rock pumice stone is amazing. It removes dead skin cells and smoothes rough patches. I love the stone and highly recommend this if you have dry and rough heels. This will definitely work on getting your feet looking smooth and soft. Your feet will look and feel great too!



Tea Tree Body butter

In this DIY Pedicure Kit I also received an amazing body butter. I decided to choose tea tree scented body butter because I  wanted this cream specifically for my feet.  I would not recommend this scent for the rest of the body because it has a natural strong tea tree scent. The scent doesn’t linger for very long though. The body butter really softens my feet and hydrates the rough patches. Also tea tree has very good natural anti-fungal properties which is great for the feet.

The seasons are conspiring against your skin once again! Our healing tea tree body butter kicks dry, itchy skin to the curb without synthetic fragrances, dyes, or preservatives. Dry, cracked feet and heels? No problem! Use it on them too! Made with decadent, natural ingredients like organic shea butter, organic olive oil, and organic coconut oil, our body butters make your skin feel silky soft and smell amazing.


IngredientsOrganic Shea Butter, Grapeseed Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Cornstarch, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Leaf Extract




If you like lavender you will really love this! I adore the lotion stick. I’ve been using this lotion stick everyday. Not only do I use this for my feet but on every dry patch on my body. It is really  soothing and melts on the skin nicely. The essential oils are released with the warmth of the body. This formula really helps me relax and sleep so nicely because of the lavender. I highly recommend this!

Lotion? In a stick? Is this real life? Yes, yes it is! Duckish lotion sticks make moisturizing easier than ever. Just twist the stick up, apply soothing lavender lotion to whatever part of the body needs a little loving, and you’re done. Your lotion-free hands will thank you. What’s more, both the 0.35oz mini stick and the 2.65oz full size are perfect for travel! Pop them in your purse, backpack or carry-on, or just slip a mini stick right in your pocket. -DUCKISH

IngredientsGrapeseed Oil, Beeswax, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Leaf Extract


My overall thoughts about this kit is that it’s amazing! I love everything in this kit and the results of each product. Each product in this kit works really well with each other. The soaking of the sea salts with the citrus really softens the skin and the lava rock helps take off dead skin. Following that the tea tree body butter really softens and soothes the feet and at the same time protects the feet from fungus. The lotion stick really soothes and and the lavender in the formula really helps relax and take away stress.  If you know someone who is on their feet all day and has pain this kit will help them a lot. I highly recommend this as a gift.


Thank you so much to Duckish for the amazing products. I’m truly grateful that I’ve tried them out and I’m so happy I did because now I can add another wonderful natural Canadian Company to my favourites list! Thank you so much!

Nature’s Pure Bliss – REVIEW

This is in collaboration with the amazing Canadian Beauty Bloggers.

About Nature’s Pure Bliss Skin & Hair Care Indulgence

“Pure & Natural Handmade with Love”

Nature’s Pure Bliss

I kindly received a beautiful exfoliating bar and a luxurious body moisturizer and I’m very excited to share my experience with you. I adore both products and I highly recommend them. They are made in Canada and are handmade with love. The products are all natural and have beautiful ingredients that are great for the skin.

 CAFFEINATOR (Peppermint, grapefruit and Lime)

A beautiful handcrafted cold processed method is used to create all “Nature’s Pure Bliss” Artisan Exfoliating Soaps. The Soaps are all moisturizing and natural. They are vegan, palm-oil free and scented with essential oils. The Blend is 100% Coconut Oil infused with Coconut Milk, shredded Loofah, Volcanic Rock (fine) and Essential Oil blends.  The Caffeinator which I kindly received to review, has Fair Trade Coffee, Dead sea Mineral, Fair Trade Coffee Grounds, Mentha arvensis leaf (peppermint) oil, Citrus paradise (grapefruit) peel oil, Citrus Latifolia Tanaka (lime) oil.

I’ve never used an exfoliating bar before and I have to say that if you want to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin off your body this will definitely do the trick. It smells amazing and it really got rid of all the dead skin on my body. It is a fantastic exfoliating soap. My body has never felt so soft before. You don’t need to press hard when using this bar because of the shredded loofah and coffee grounds. You just need to glide it gently on the skin with water and it will take off all dead skin. If feels really good to use the Caffeinator Exfoliating Soap.


TIPS: Do not use on face. Do not let soap bar sit in water after using it. Use a holder that lets the water drain off. This way the soap doesn’t melt.

My entire bathroom smells so good because of the beautiful oils that are in the soaps. The soaps are cut in slabs and they look good enough to eat! I really love using these bars. The scent is so relaxing and my skin is left soft and silky. No residue, no itchiness no dryness! I use my loofa and the soap lathers up so nicely.
