It’s almost embarrassing to say, but I have an aversion to mint to the point where I still use bubble gum toothpaste! That said, when wearing heels is part of your day-to-day life and summer is fast approaching, it’s definitely time to crank up the heat on your foot-care. Mint seems to be especially effective for foot creams (maybe because of the potent smell!?). I’ve tested out a few and one that seems to work well is Peppermint Foot Therapy The line is dedicated solely to feet products, so I figure they must mean business! (More after the jump!)
I tried their Exfoliating Foot Scrub and the Massaging Foot Butter (all their products come in uber-girly pink packaging), and loved the sandy texture (similar to St. Ives Apricot Scrub, for those who have tried that) and the smell was actually fairly mild and didn’t seep into my fingertips. The Foot Butter also contains Shea Butter which I’ve been obsessed with ever since first trying L’Occitane’s signature hand cream.
The one downside is that the creams are somewhat oily, so you have to rinse your feet once you’ve applied the product.
There’s also a men’s line — I would suggest the Foot Deodorant stick if the man in your life isn’t as into his beauty regimen as you are – easy and effective!
Note that like all good things pink, a percentage of proceeds from the woman’s line are donated to the HBC Think Pink Program.
