Happy Feet with Lush

26 Jul

I’m pretty rough on my feet.  I shove them in high heels every day and just tell them to deal with it.  You can imagine my delight when I came across this cute little set at Lush with products all geared toward my poor feetsies.

I decided to give them some pampering (before I shove them back into a stiletto).

1) Soak your feet with the Geo Phyzz Bath Bomb.

How to use:  Put feet into a large tub filled with water.  Drop bath bomb into the water, watch dissolve.

My thoughts:  As someone who does not like baths, it’s a given that I’m not a fan of bath bombs.  My biggest issue with the bath bomb is that it’s a one-time-use thing.  You toss it in the water, and watch your $5 dissolve (it’s mostly made of salt and baking soda).  I wish that Lush would’ve included something that wasn’t single use for the foot soak (maybe tablets?).  I broke mine into a few pieces so I’ll be able to use it 3-4 more times.  I find the effects on my skin minimal, but some of you may enjoy the “fizz” effect.  Glitter rating:  2 / 5

2) Scrub your feet with the Stepping Stone Foot Scrub.

How to use:  Cut off a piece (1-2 inches) and rub onto damp skin.

My thoughts:  It smells delish!  And, well… that’s about it.  This is very fragile and dissolves when wet.  Be sure to keep the part you aren’t using away from the water.  It dissolves almost immediately when it comes in contact to damp skin, so you don’t really get a chance to scrub.  Glitter rating: 1 / 5

3) Apply the Volcano Foot Mask.

How to use:  Just rub the clay mask all over the feet (even the bottoms) and let it set for about 10 minutes.  You can cover with plastic wrap if you still need to get up and walk around, or you can just use it as an excuse it sit on the couch (like me).  Then rinse off.

My thoughts:  It makes my feet feel so soft!  It feels cool when your first put it on, which is very relaxing.  The clay and enzymes help slough away dead skin.  The scent is very strong, but it only bothers me if I actually sniff the jar.  Glitter rating: 4.5 / 5

4) Apply the Fair Trade Foot Lotion.

How to use:  Massage all over feet.

My thoughts:  Very soothing and moisturizing, I love this stuff.  The arnica helps reduce swelling and almond and cocoa butter moisturize the skin.  And since I’m perpetually 13 years old I love that it’s pink.  Glitter rating: 5 / 5

The set also included knot-wrap with feet printed on it and an instruction manual on ways to use it.

Overall:  A very cute idea, I love that I was able to purchase all of the products in one instead of purchasing them separately.  The bath bomb and scrub are duds (although I know bath bomb lovers will disagree with me),  but the mask and lotion are very effective.  These are not full size products, but I will have enough Volcano Mask and Foot Lotion to use for a couple of months.

Overall Glitter rating:  3 / 5

The Lush Happy Feet set is $24.50.  You can purchase at any Lush store or here online. 

Do you guys ever pamper your feet?  What kind of products do you use?
