"First Aid For Feet"

I love beach holidays for the usual reasons. Sun, sea, sand and relaxation. But I also love how my feet are after a week of walking through white sand. As sand is a natural exfoliator, it makes sense that my feet are almost brand new after my holiday. Soft and fresh, the sand does wonders. But as soon as I am back home, with my feet tormented with dirt, socks and hard floors it’s no wonder the rough and tough look creeps back in.
So in order to try and keep my baby soft feet for as long as possible I went on a mission to find a foot cream which actually lasted longer than 24 hours.

I had a good look though the shelves and decided on using the professional looking Scholl Deep Moisturising Cream. With the Scholl name being a well know foot care brand and its basic almost clinical looking tube, I thought this could be a winner.
Scholl say that this cream should make your feet feel 80% more hydrated immediately and leave my feel feeling soft, smooth and conditioned. This is exactly what I want. It also says to massage the cream into your feet 2-3 times a week. So not too much effort required.

The white cream itself is very thick, which is what I expected and it had a very faint smell of peppermint. The cream was very cooling on my feet and was definitely thick enough to leave my feet in a creamy coating. The slight peppermint smell was quite refreshing on my feet and if you do suffer from swollen feet or ankles, this would be great for you as it gives a little instant relief.

The cream was quite thick and did take a long time to sock in. This seems to be usual with foot creams but I still find it quite annoying. I prefer to put my cream on in the morning but because it takes so long to dry I have to put it on before bed, cover with some cotton socks and let it do its magic.

The outcome of using the cream was that my feet were definitely softer and smoother after using the cream. The instant fix did work to create smoother skin but because the cream takes ages to sink in the ‘instant’ effect will happen once dry. (So no walking or socks and shoes for at least 30 minutes) But the effects do only really last 24 hours. Even though the instructions are to use 2-3 times a week, if you really want super soft feet then you will have to use it every day. I don’t think it helps prevent hard or dry skin. It really is a quick fixer rather than a long term preventer.

I will keep this cream as an emergency fix, maybe after hiding my feet throughout winter and then a bit of sunshine pops out and my feet need to be quickly fixed. But as a day to day foot cream, it is a little bit to greasy and does not help prolong the soft skin; it just fixes it for a day or so.

Recommended for your feet first aid kit!

    With Scholl's name on it, I'd have expected it to have been better than that, hate the idea of putting greasy feet into socks or shoes, or into the bed at night come to that! R. xxx
