Hi my Lovelies,
I am back with the sequel to my Soap and Glory brand post. If you remember, I posted a review on the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub here and it appeared a lot of you really liked Soap and Glory so here is my take on the Soap and Glory Heel Genius Foot Cream which I also received as a birthday gift from a dear friend. I am going to be honest, I have never really been a foot cream girl at all. The only time I remember using a foot cream would probably be when I get a pedicure. Outside of that, I just use my normal body cream or moisturiser for my feet and that's it.
It has the characteristic Soap and Glory pink packaging and I am really pleased it came in a tube because I would have been put off if it were a tub. No to Tubs except Body Shop Body Butters which won't be the same if they came in a tube. Anyway, it's a neat packaging and I like it; not much to say there.
Appearance and Formula
I was quite surprised to see that it was a light blue colour; I am not sure why I was surprised but I guess it's because that's a really different colour for a cream. I quickly checked the ingredients list to find out what the culprit for the colour was and it was none other than Menthol which also explains why it had a somewhat "cooling" feeling when used. Other ingredients include extracts of Grape, Orange, Lemon and Sugar cane as well as Allantoin, Macadamia Seed Oil, Sugar Maple and a variety of others I can't be bothered with typing out.
How I use it/Results
It's really straightforward as expected from a foot cream. I apply a pea size amount directly on each clean foot and massage it in. It's a little thick so you need to smooth and massage it in well. I slip on some cotton stockings as instructed on the tube and I am off to bed. I wake up to a well moisturised feet although there is a high chance I may get the same results with any other body cream/moisturiser. I guess the Menthol really helps in making your feet feel "refreshed" which I think is a nice touch. I can't fault it.
I have not really been using this every night because I am not yet used to it and I usually forget when I am tired. When I do remember, I am always pleased with the results in the morning because my feet feels really soft, look refreshed and ready for the day. Is it a necessity? For me, I would say it's not but if you have a foot fetish, yes, this is the product for you. I hope you have enjoyed this and see you in my next post...x
