The Body Shop Soothing Peppermint Foot Care

Some time ago I was sent a few products from The Body Shop’s Peppermint foot range to try out.  As Mr Fluff will attest, my feet are always killing me and any sort of foot pampering is downright blissful in my book. I was sent samples of the Cooling Foot Lotion and Foot Spray, along with the Reviving Leg Gel. The rest of the range sounded so divine that I purchased the Reviving Foot Soak and  Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub, so that I could try out all the products together. 

The pale pink foot scrub crystals contain natural effervescent salts

After my friends’ wedding last week my feet had spent longer than usual in higher than usual heels, so it seemed the ideal time to put these products through their paces. I spritzed my tired, aching soles with the foot spray before soaking, scrubbing and lotioning them to foot heaven, finishing by working the leg gel from my ankles to my knees. 

Smoothing pumice foot scrub

The entire ritual was soothing and relaxing and I particularly enjoyed the fresh, sweet tingliness of the peppermint oil -- sourced from the English countryside through the The Body Shop’s fair trade programme, Community Trade. The products also contain natural nourishers like sesame oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil and Community Trade cocoa butter. 

The soak and scrub felt especially pampering -– the peppermint scent is fab and afterwards my feet felt thoroughly cleansed, revived and exfoliated. The spray and gel soothed my feet and both felt intensely cooling and refreshing.

Because I already had the lotion, I gave the Intensive Foot Rescue Cream a miss this time. But this moisturising treatment sounds like just the ticket for my poor old dry soles and heels, and can be used overnight. Along with organically-grown Brazilian soya oil, cocoa butter from Ghana and beeswax from Zambia – all from the Community Trade programme - this product also contains grape acids for additional skin smoothing benefits. It’s definitely one I’ll be picking up in the future.  

I LOVE this range and the products left my feet feeling relaxed, revitalised, softer, smoother and altogether in a far, far happier place.

I am a long time fan of The Body Shop and have always loved the Peppermint foot range. I also use the Lemongrass foot range too.

@Sarah, @Rachelle, it was a real treat using the products and if pushed, I think I'd pick the scrub as my absolute fave.

@Helen99 Lemongrass, you say?! Why that also sounds divine, must investigate!

Awww, in a weird way this reminds me of my grandmother! She used to have a bottle of the foot cooling spray and I used to love to use it as a child on my 'tired' feet!

I actually have a small bottle of the cream lotion and it's great, I used it a few weeks ago when I was feeling warm and it does work

I haven't thought about using peppermint to take care of my foot. I'm happy you gave that idea. These products can help maintain the health of my feet.
