- Good for seriously dry skin
- Smells delicious
- Returns feet (and elbows) to their natural softness
Watch out, this can be very, very greasy and it takes time to absorb.
This foot cream isn’t for everyone – mainly because it’s more like an ointment than a cream. If that makes you think of a greasy, slow-absorbing product, you’re spot on the money. But, it works like a charm to rejuvenate super dry feet that aren’t overly cracked or callused.
And, this smells incredible. After a few nights of using it, you may just find yourself addicted or that it’s difficult to fall asleep without this soothing smell. We do suggest applying it before bed – and only if you’re prepared to sacrifice your sheets or sleep with socks on. If you can’t do that, we suggest you look for a product that absorbs into the skin faster.
But, we do love the price and the paraben-free status of this product; you shouldn’t worry about it absorbing into your skin – however slowly, it does so eventually. Plus, you should expect super soft feet after just a few nights using this cream.
Key ingredients: You’ll get a lot of good stuff in here. That includes rosemary, and peppermint extracts along with coconut oil, lanolin, and vegetable glycerin.
Animal-friendly: This is a grey area, we’re sorry to say. While Burt’s Bees has always been against animal testing, they’ve recently opened to the Chinese market – which demands animal testing. The manufacturers believe they’ve managed to avoid the pre-market testing, China requires post-market testing which means they have or will test Burt’s Bees products on animals to stay in the mainland China market. Yikes!
Fragrance: It smells like a combination of mint, rosemary, and coconut – and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised as to how those fragrances work together.
Application: We’re not going to beat around the bush on this one; you need to apply this cream before bed – and only when you’re willing to stain your sheets or put on socks as soon as you’ve massaged it in; it is rather on the greasy side and doesn’t absorb quickly.
Package size: Comes in a 4.34-ounce tube. Amazon also has a 3-pack if you always need to have some on hand.
Cost: A single tube is very reasonably priced at around $9. That’s a little more than $2 per ounce, which, in this category, is a good deal.
Bottom line: We’ll be honest about it not being the right texture for everyone; it’s not. But if a little greasiness isn’t going to stand between you and baby soft feet, the price is right and you should definitely give it a try.
