07 Aug GIVEAWAY, Swatches: How To Get Rid Of Dry, Rough, Calloused Feet: The Best Foot Care Products: Bliss, LUSH, Elemis, Ahava, L’Occitane
These long summer days have had us enjoying sandals, digging our toes in the sand and walking all over the place. So, it’s no surprise that our feet might be feeling a bit sore and rough. Calloused heels and dry, cracked feet might be having us wish for the fall season, so we can hide our tootsies in some boots.
7 Expert Tips To Get Rid Of Dry Calluses On Your Feet. Read all about it —> HERE!
Never fear! BeautyStat has wrangled up some of the best foot care treatments for your feet! From soothing foot soaks to therapeutic foot therapy socks, your feet will be feeling soft, smooth and looking their absolute best — don’t stash those summer flip-flops away just yet! Read on!
Limited Edition LUSH Happy Feet (online exclusive; $24.95) — Four of LUSH’s best-selling (in travel-friendly sizes) products are conveniently nestled away in this reusable, caricature feet people emblazoned knot-wrap. It includes the Geo Phyzz Bath Bomb to soak tired feet with calming and uplifting cypress, pine and sea salt.
Once feet are clean, slap on the Volcano Foot Mask with kaolin, fresh papaya and lemon juices — as well as tomato, potato and anti-fungal essential oils — to get rid of odor-causing bacteria. Once I put it on, my feet felt immediately cooled (which lasted throughout the night, even when I washed it off) and soothed. I also wrapped my feet with saran wrap to preserve the foot mask’s wetness.
Once the foot mask has been on for 10-minutes, wash it all away with the Stepping Stone Foot Scrub — a natural pumice stone (shaped like a foot) with lime and lemon oils to deodorizes feet, lycopodium powder to absorb odors and jojoba oil and cocoa butter to moisturize.
Seal in all that treatment with the Fair Trade Foot Lotion. It has the mintiest smell and the most appealing pink cream color. Fair Trade cocoa butter comprises this lotion, along with spearmint and peppermint; arnica and marigold herbs help to relieve any aches and pains from long days of walking/running.
Ahava Dermud Intense Foot Cream ($26.50) — This rich, intensive foot cream repairs and hydrates cracked, rough soles and skin. It also contains the brand’s exclusive Osmoter™ ingredient — a perfectly balanced concentrate of dead sea minerals that effectively replenishes, rehydrates and recharges skin.
It is meant for the most sensitive skin with aloe vera, shea butter, vitamin E, provitamin B5 and jojoba oils locking in moisture for all-day comfort. It’s a thick cream that leaves a nice emollient layer on the skin. I love slathering on a heavier foot cream at night — followed by socks — to ensure softened feet in the morning. Paraben-free and allergy-tested, I can smell the shea butter initially with other natural oils.
Bliss Softening Socks ($52.00) — Forget about your usual, thick, fluffy spa socks you usually use after you apply foot cream! These Softening Socks hydrate hardened heels with a self-activating gel lining. The gel lining is infused with olive oil, grapeseed oil and vitamin E. It says to apply to clean, dry feet for 20-minutes twice a week. Once you take them off, your feet will feel more moisturized without having any greasy residue.
When I put them on I walked around for a bit — it felt like my feet were wearing a wet suit. It felt really refreshing — it’s just too cool not to use! You can use them about 50 times, and if you have to wash them, do so delicately with soap and water; let them dry for a day or two and add talc powder inside the gel lining!
June Jacobs Spa Collection Peppermint Moisturizing Foot Mist ($40.00) — If you’re not a fan of heavy foot creams, then this foot mist is for you! Paraben- and preservative-free, this invigorating foot mist is formulated with nourishing peach and apricot oils, including squalene, vitamin E and natural antiseptic peppermint extract. Feet are instantly cooled to soothe tired, overworked feet.
The mist is more oil-based and is meant to be used at night with socks. It smells exactly like Peppermint Tic-Tacs! The scent lingered around my feet (and throughout the rooms) even when I had my socks on! I personally loved the smell! If your feet aren’t in need of too much intensive care, then this mist is perfect for a quick dose of light hydration.
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream ($33.50) — Rich in conditioning shea butter and jojoba oil, this intensely moisturizing foot cream sinks right into skin. It smooths and hydrates rough and dry areas, leaving a aromatic scent of patchouli, eucalyptus and lemon oils to comfort your feet.
98% of users said their skin felt noticeably softer and more moisturized after use! The foot cream smelled heavenly, and I was impressed at how quickly it absorbed into my skin for being such an intensive foot cream. The scent, by the way, is AMAZING! They should make more body lotions smell like this!
H20+ Softening Mint Foot Rub ($15.00) — Boy, were my feet aching one night after running three miles (more like power-walking). So, I was excited to put this foot rub to the test, which promises to cool, relieve tension and smooth away dry skin.
As soon as I started rubbing it into my skin, I instantly felt a cooling sensation from the menthol and the hydrating (and lovely scent) of the marine blend: wakame, sea lettuce and sea fennel. It also contains balm mint extract with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to naturally soothe the skin. Soon my feet weren’t achy and felt completely revitalized! I absolutely LOVED this one!
L’Occtaine Almond Foot Care ($16.00) — The almond milk in this velvety foot cream instantly smooths rough feet. The lightly scented cream includes nourishing shea butter to repair damaged skin, plus refreshing and purifying mint essential oil for an instantly pleasant sensation. The best thing about this foot cream is its powdery finish! Once you rub into your feet, there is no greasy residue!
Feel free to apply socks right after, but there really is no need to — the almond foot cream even says you can put on your sandals right after application. For that reason alone, I would use this in the morning so my feet are moisturized and pampered from morning until night.
