The Bee's Knees... or Feet?

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.

Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream - Swatched

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?

  1. Omg i go this a good 3 years ago i think and loved it! I done a lot of walking back then and it changed my feet for the better. Totally forgot about this little wonder, defo repurchasing this


    1. You wouldn't think we would get so excited over a foot cream, would you?! But it really is that good! x

  2. I'm one of those people who can't stand dry feet so I use a cream on them every single day. Sometime I just use my hand cream and one that is great for both, hands and feet is the one by Palmer. But I will check your recommendation :) x

  4. My mother has this and loves it! She made me use it just the other night and I was in love! I've never really used foot cream before, but I really liked this stuff. Great post!

  5. This sounds so nice! I personally love the scent of coconut :D . I actually never felt the need to use a foot cream (is that strange? thankfully my feet are pretty much always baby soft lol!) but this winter my skin turned into a dry mess and I grabbed the first foot cream I could find at a drugstore and the difference is so big that now I can't imagine to go without a foot cream ;) I think I'll give this one a go as soon as I run out of the one I have now ;) Great review!

  6. Ive tried their hand salve and found it very greasy and the scent is very strong but might give this foot cream a go as Im suffering a serious case of winter feet which are nowhere near ready to be revealed to the world! x

  7. This honestly sounds amazing! I absolutely love coconut scented products and I should sort my scaly dragon claws out for Summer, haha :) I'll be checking this out!

  11. Great post! I don't actually have a foot cream even though I know I should. I just put lotion on my feet and covered it with socks before I go to bed! <3

  15. I'm intrigued! Foot creams are generally something I'm too lazy to bother with as well (I just use body butter) but would be so helpful. I'm not sure how I feel about the gel consistency, I kind of think it sounds fresh but, as you mentioned, quite sticky. Great to hear it worked so well and thank you for reviewing this, I'll have to have a look at it in the store. :)

  16. I've never tried anything from Burt's Bees before, but this sounds really lovely! x


  17. I've never tried this, but I'm on the hunt for a good foot cream. Until now, I've been slathering my feet in coconut oil at night, which works very well.
