Lets Talk About Feet!


God, I hate feet. I hate my feet especially; they're a weird shape, far too wide, and practically every single pair of footwear I've ever worn (including flip flops) rub me, causing blisters and cuts. Summer means I have to take some extra care with my feet, and they're usually not too much of a pretty sight after being stuck in tights and thick socks all winter. I've got a few products that have helped get them in tip-top condition and sandal ready.

Pulp Friction by Soap & Glory is one of my favourite scrubs; it's quite gentle, and foams up nicely meaning it gives a really good clean too, but it does the job well of clearing away any flakey, dry areas. It has a really lovely fruity, fresh scent too, which is lovely on the warmer days. I make sure I moisturize my feet well too, and like to smother them in The Body Shop Shea Butter once every week or so, pop them in some socks and leave it all to sink in overnight. I get dry skin really easily on my feet, so this is really important to me, as well as using a foot file regularly to get rid of the most I can.

Another thing from feet are just fantastic at are overheating, and I get heatrash really easily during summer, so I need to be able to cool them down on warmer days. I have a little spray from Avon, the Foot Works Sugar and Lime Mojito Refreshing Spray which feels so cooling and lovely, and has a gorgeous fresh scent too so makes your tootsies smell gorgeous! I also sometimes carry around Lush' Silky Underwear if I know I'll be having a long day with lots of walking, which is like a cuter alternative to talcum powder - it soaks up any perspiration and has a lovely scent, with cocoa butter in too so helps to add a bit of moisture too.

I know they're not the nicest of subjects, but we all have them and especially for myself, looking after my feet is really important in summer. Do you have any foot-friendly products you swear by?

  2. I just got a very relaxing pedicure done yesterday and after so so long it felt great! Feet are all over the place in summer have to keep them looking good! So hard!

  4. I despise feet too - mine are so awkwardly shaped and just horrible to look at! I recently discovered the Volcano foot mask by Lush and I have to say it's pretty wonderful, my feet are so soft and I don't feel scared to have them on show!x

    Shea body butter smells amazing :)
    It's weird but i don't like to see feets which has too short nails. It makes the feet more wide. I think that's the biggest mistakes about pedicure.

  8. I've been eyeing up the Soap & Glory scrub so I'm happy to hear it works well for you! On a related note, have you tried the Soap & Glory Heel Genius foot lotion? That's my go-to product for feet, it's super moisturizing, slightly exfoliating, and I love the scent - which just sounds weird when talking about foot cream...!

    It sounds like we have the same foot woes! Mine are so wide and end up stretching every lovely pair of shoes I buy, ballet pumps are pretty much a no-go unless I want to look like I have spade feet :( I've found the best thing for feet is hand cream, oddly enough. They just have so much moisturising power in them! x

  10. I can wear ballet pumps, but I end up walking on the actual material of the shoe 'cause they're so wide, so they don't last too long!


    Thanks for the tip, I'll have to try out hand cream!

  16. I wish I could get a pedicure done, I think I wouldn't be able to relax properly having someone's hands all over my horrible feet! I think I'll try to employ my boyfriend haha

  18. The peppermint pumice foot scrub by TBS is just perfect it's so hard to find a foot scrub thats super…scrubby but that ones brilliant leaves your feet feeling extra soft. I have the S&G Pulp friction too, I use it on my body too though so easy to use in the shower :) x
