Foot-Care Focus

Foot Care

I’ve noticed recently that I’ve gathered a fair collection of foot-care products and that I’d never reviewed any of them. That together with a focus on my feet recently – I’ve hurt my heel on one foot and my big toe on the other – mean that I’ve been thinking about feet alot more than I usually do. so I’ve now tried out all the products and here’s what I thought:

CCS Heel Balm 75ml

This product claims to be really intensive and to mend cracked heels. It’s very rich and definitely mostiurises but the effect appears to be temporary and despite regular use I didn’t see a significant improvement in dry skin. I didn’t have any cracks but I’m not convinced that this would be the one I’d choose if I did. It costs £7.49 here.

Soap and Glory Heel Genius 125ml

This was given to me as a little extra in a giveaway prize that I won a few months back. It’s a lovely rich foot cream although again I find the effect temporary rather than long-lasting. What I do have a bit of an issue with and it’s  not  just with this brand but it’s that someone appears to have decreed that foot products should be minty and this does put me off a bit. Otherwise it’s lovely so if you’d like to try this out then you can buy it here for £5.50.

Superdrug Intensive Foot Cream 100ml

This one contains aloe vera to sooth and vitamin B5, renowned for its conditioning properties. I liked the rich conditioning feel of this one but guess what it still has a touch of that minty smell. Can someone please point me in the direction of foot-care without mint? This option will cost you just £2.32 while it’s on offer!

Superdrug Exfoliating Foot Scrub 100ml

This scrub contains gentle exfoliants, jojoba seed oil and aloe vera to smooth and soften rough and dry skin. The exfoliants are very gentle and smoothed the skin rather than removing any hard skin. I found it soothing and comforting and didn’t really notice the smell too much so perhaps I’ll give this one the thumbs up!

Superdrug Comfort Insoles

Oh dear, I’m afraid this story does not have a happy ending! I was so glad to receive these and with all my foot problems I was looking forward to some extra comfort. I read the instructions carefully. I tried to follow them exactly. The first sentence told me not to cut the insoles to small. Obvious I thought, of course I won’t do that. The second sentence said follow the guidelines. This seemed easy the insoles were marked out with men’s and women’s sizes and so I cut the insole to my size and – it was too small! I should have followed the first sentence and not the second! So I didn’t get any comfort at all and had to throw them in the bin! Not too much money wasted though as you can buy them for £1.32 at the moment here.

I guess then that I’m still looking for some hard-working, comforting, non-minty products. Any suggestions folks?

  1. Sorry to hear about your insole mishap – this also happened to my hubby with the same pair of insoles I bought him for his new work shoes. Very annoying 😦
    Unfortunately I have no suggestions of my own to offer… I really need to invest in more foot products as at present I’m literally using a whatever is closest to hand! Amazingly though I’ve managed to dodge any hard skin issues. The exfoliating foot scrub sounds something I’d love… might pop into Superdrug this weekend to treat my feet! Great post, hopefully we’ll have better luck next time with the insoles 🙂
