The Body Shop-Peppermint Foot Scrub




Feet, yes I said it that forbidden word on all blogs and Youtube channels across the country. But yes we all have them, and sadly foot care couldn't be anything other than one big fat chore. However that being said I'd prefer too get my scrub on and have healthy feet. 

Without sounding like a 'cheesy' foot advert, did you know that the average human walks 5210 steps per day? That’s crazy, if there’s any part of your body that deserves a little TLC it’s definitely your tootsies. Now, I’m no foot obsessive and quite frankly foot care bores me to tears but I do take care of them all year round (not just when summer approaches) as it’s something that is generally quite important to me. Sandals + dry, cracked heels well let’s just say it won’t be trending anytime soon! 

I’ve tried my fair share of foot scrubs but for some reason I always return to this one by The Body Shop. Many foot scrubs I have tried are not abrasive, now when you have a body scrub that’s perfectly understandable but for a foot scrub I want something super abrasive and rough in texture. This peppermint foot scrub is super abrasive (this wins the right to use the word pumice in it's name) refreshing and cooling on your feet. It’s not bitty (not like the ones that end up down the drain) this clings to your feet. You can use this in the shower too, I find with some foot scrubs they leave residue behind, which is a no go when your in the shower but this one leaves no oily residue behind on your feet.

This really is the most effective foot scrub Ive used, when I use this I notice a huge difference. This manages to leave my feet feeling moisturised and super soft. Sandals at the ready now I’m just waiting on the sunshine…

What are your favourite foot scrubs? Why is everyone so afraid of feet, granted there not the sexiest thing in the world but we all have them I’d prefer to look after them….

*If you saw my Animal testing post you may have noticed I mentioned the Body Shop test on animals, this is incorrect however The Body Shop are owned by L'oreal a company that do test on animals. So in theory by buying Body shop products you're supporting a company that do animal test, but the product itself isn't tested on animals. It's a tough one!*

Looks good, I don't actually do a lot of feet/foot(?)care, but really should start doing it!

I don't understand foot phobia. I mean I don't spend all day browsing google for pictures of yellowed toenails, but the average person's foot is just... a foot. Uh, anyway, I've been using this rough sponge scrubber thing on my feet lately and that seems to be doing a good job. I also use an AHA cream on my feet occasionally and that seems to help keep them soft.

Thanks for comment Tanya, I agree it really is plus I think sometimes it's difficult to find products that actually work! I have tried the lotion in the range if it smells anything like this I bet it's good though I love peppermint smell :) x
