First let me reassure you - there will be no photos of my feet in this blog post. Nobody needs to see that.
Right. Now we've got that cleared up, let's get on with it, shall we?
Obviously I blog about beauty products because I love them and have a healthy (or unhealthy!) interest in trying as many as I can in the eternal quest to look and feel as goddess-like as possible. However, there are certain products I tend to get into a rut with, and foot cream is one of them. For as long as I can remember I have used the Body Shop's Peppermint Foot Cream. Now don't get me wrong, that is a great product, and the main reason I have got into a rut with it is because it does such a good job. But every so often you wind up in a new town, out of foot cream and unsure of the whereabouts of the nearest Body Shop, and rather than go out hunting for it, you decide to see what's available at Boots.
That's how I found Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream, and I think it's even better than my trusty old Body Shop product.
Foot cream is one of those things that I often can't be bothered with, but I really notice the difference in my skin between when I use it and when I don't. When I bought this, I hadn't used any for a while, and suffice it to say my feet were decidedly ungoddess-like.
The consistency of this product is more like a gel than a traditional cream. This makes it slightly less pleasant to apply, in my opinion, as it's quite thick and sticky, but once it's sunk in it has a pretty much instant softening effect. One application transformed my feet from scaly dragon claws to beautifully soft, which really impressed me.
If you're not crazy about the smell of coconut then this might not be for you. It's pretty strongly scented and it lingers all day. I love it, so this isn't an issue for me, but if you're thinking "ugh!" it's also available in peppermint.
There isn't much more to say about this, just to re-emphasise that it does what it says on the tin and then some!
Have you tried this? What's your favourite foot cream?
