[ Review ] Body Shop Feet Range

SamHodgett_Beauty_Body_Shop_Feet_1.jpg

I bought the entire body shop feet range that is available in HK awhile back and been meaning to do a review on it, so today I’m finally sitting down to give you my thoughts on the products.
I don’t usually buy body shop products, except for their foot spray which I have been using diligently for years now. One reason for not visiting their store that often, is because of their sales people. Once you buy one product, they want you to buy the whole store. Though, I have never seen their sales people as aggressive as in HK. So a few months back, I went to their store and of course they were trying so hard for me to buy other products that I’ve decided to just get all their foot care items and stock up the foot spray so that I won’t have to go to their store for a good 6 months at least.

There are 4 items in their range, a foot scrub, lotion, spray and pumice. I don’t usually take good care of my feet, so it was finally a treat for them.  Enjoy!

The scrub has a strong peppermint smell, which is quite pleasant and a rather strange texture. It’s almost gel-like and once you work it in, you can feel the small granules. The scrub separates easily and washes away very quick under water. While it does leave your skin smooth, it just doesn’t do enough.

The scrub comes in a jar, which is a no go for sanitary reasons and also, if you use it in the shower, you end up getting a lot of water mixed into the jar if you aren’t careful.
 

Is it worth it?
If you have pretty decent feet that doesn’t have much hard skin on the bottom, you’ll probably like this. Though, as an avid wearer of heels, my feet’s  surface is pretty rough to say the least and this just didn’t cut it for me. There are much better scrubs out there that can do a better job for only a slight difference in price.

I must be honest, I don’t use this that often. I tend to use my regular body lotion for my feet as well and find it a bit excessive to use this separately. But, when I do feel like my feet are extra tired (and I remember) I’ll use this moisturiser along with the foot spray and my feet feel very cooled and relaxed. The best use for this though, would be on my calves, the cooling effect is much more impactful in that area. 

It comes in a jar, like the foot scrub, which again is a con in my book. The smell is quite intense but will disappear in a few minutes. Every time I open this jar, I immediately think of Wrigley’s chewing gum stick in Doublemint flavour. The cream is thick and slightly pink in colour, so you do have to work it in quite a bit and wait for a few minutes until it is fully absorbed. It does leave your skin moisturised and soft, like a regular body butter or decent thick formulated body lotion. The only additional benefit would be that it does cool down the feet after a few minutes, which is a nice touch after a long day. 

 

Is it worth it?
I guess because I've had it for a few months now and I'm not even close to finishing it, it's worth it for the price. It's a decent, not great, foot cream and that's really all there is to it. I'm on the fence about repurchasing this item if I were to use it up.

Peppermint Cooling and Reviving Foot Spray

 

Price :: US$ 7 (Discounted Price) // GBP 6.50 // HK$ 139

Size :: 100 ml

Claims :: Revive and refresh tired and achy feet

 

I can’t even remember when I first started using this product, it must have been at least 6 or 7 years ago. As someone that walks quite a bit at a fast pace, my feet get tired very easily and this spray just instantly relaxes them. The smell, just like the scrub is very intense but will fade in a minute.

I personally like to use this daily right before I go to bed. It has become a real habit that even my boyfriend now does and we feel weird going to bed without it. 

 

Is it worth it?
If you’re looking for something to cool your feet if you’re on the go, after the gym or right before bed, I’d definitely suggest you to try this. It’s one of my staple body care item that I just need to have next to my bedside table and in my gym bag. One bottle lasts me a bit more than a month with daily use for my boyfriend and I, so it’s not that pricey.

No More Rough Stuff Pumice


Price :: US$ n/a // GBP 4 // HK$ 39

Claims :: Use on your elbows, knees and feet for skin that's smooth to the touch.

Ingredients :: 100% Polyurethane

The pumice is very light weight and not as grainy as I’d like it to be so it doesn’t remove much rough skin underneath my feet. This is pretty gentle so it would work better for places like elbows and knees if you have rough skin there.

 

Is it worth it?
Out of all the products, this is the one that I dislike the most. It really doesn’t do much at all and you can definitely get better ones at your drugstore for a cheaper price.
