Here’s something you don’t see every day, an up close shot of this very peculiar foot balm. Took me long enough to get a decent picture that shows you how funny the actual product is. As you can tell it’s a yellow tinted balm containing small -what I first expected to be- granules. It’s the shea butter in the mix that turns into a more grainy texture, once you touch it it’ll vanish again.
I’ve been using this foot balm for months now, stacked away nicely at home. Since it’s not a face product and I only bring it out when my feet need it, I almost forgot to write about it. Does it help when I mention that this product is completely organic and it smells great due to the peppermint & rosemary in it? Olive, avocado and carrot oil to nourish the skin, calendula and pumpkin seed to kickstart the regenerating process. Completely packed with all the right things to revive those worn out feet.
You get a spatula with it but I just used my fingers most of the time. Warm it up between the hands and vigorously rub it into the skin on your feet. You’ll find that the balm has turned into an oil, so don’t fear those grains you first might see, and just work it all in. Put on some socks and see what happens overnight. Depending on how severe you neglected your feet, it’ll take a few days or just one usage to fix it. I quite enjoy this as I also feel a slight tingle while using the product. A tingle is nice on hot/tired feet, not so much on the face.
Since this is such a light texture and you might fear that it’s not enough, it really is but some people like the idea of heavy creams more, you can always top this off with some regular vaseline or other cream that’s not enough on it’s own. Experiment a little and make sure you get your feet in mint condition again before spring arrives.
