Yuni ~ Muscle Recovery Gel {review}

Hi Loves! Last summer I was contacted by Yuni Beauty asking if I would like to try one of their new products.  Of course, I did, received one product and also purchased another to try the line.  Fast forward to this spring and they emailed asking if I’d like to be a brand ambassador with them.  Since I liked the products that I tried, I jumped at the opportunity.

They sent me a box of goodies and I was immediately drawn to this product.  Today I’m starting my first of several Yuni posts with one of my instant favorites.  Before I tell you about the product – here’s a little background on Yuni .

My thoughts-

I’ve been using this off and on for a few weeks and a couple weeks ago I got a flare up of Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot.  In a nutshell if you haven’t heard, its similar to a heel spur, except a tendon (plantar fascia) stretches across the bottom of your foot from heel to toes gets inflamed.  Mornings are especially rough as I can’t put any weight on my heel.  As the morning goes on and I walk around more the tendon loosens up and its not as painful.  Towards the evening it starts to get sore again.  There really isn’t any treatment other than supportive shoes, ice, massage and rest.  I’ve been using this on my foot especially after a shower and the skin is softer.  (Confession – I haven’t given up on my steps goal for May either!)

The biggest appeal of this product is the roller ball  on the top.  It really lets me get into various pressure points on my foot and when the skin is already soft, it really sinks in and warms the tendon and helps relax it.

BOTTOM LINE – LOVE.  Hands down, I am recommending this to any one with tight and sore muscles.  I’m not kidding, in fact if  we’re friends and I see you randomly, I’ll bring it so you can see it, smell it, and even try it if you’d like.  I’ll be buying more of this when I run out because I’m seriously loving it.  Click the link above to visit the site, or visit yuni beauty on your own and check out the other products they have.
