What we say:
Delicately perfumed with a clean, fresh fragrance this product is definitely a treat for your feet. It comes in a fuss-free 100ml tub that’s easy to open. The balm has a creamy texture, lighter than most mainstream body butters, making it easy to apply. Simply slather it on your feet before you head to bed, slip on some socks (to help the product penetrate better) and wake up to baby soft feet. The effects are long lasting too, once a week is enough if you have normal skin. With Johannesburg’s dry winter wreaking havoc on my skin I used it twice a week with excellent results. It even helped soften callouses and the harder skin on my heels. Although a little does go a long way with this product I would prefer if it came in a slightly bigger tub – especially for women who suffer with dry heels.

It had to be design for me to receive this heel balm as a product to review, as I have been struggling with hard/tough skin around my heal area and on the cushions of my feet. I always try and keep my expectation of a specific product at a realistic level as too many manufacturers claim their products to be the next best thing, at the expense of consumer disappointment. I like the packaging, which gives it quite a feminine feel and it is a convenient size. If used sparingly and only where required, the pot should last you at most two months, which spells great value for money. The balm has a light blue colour with a subtle and clean fragrance, which doesn’t leave an oily residue on your feet. When you touch the balm the oily ingredients are visually recognizable but I have to admit that the moisturising properties live up to their name, as once it is applied the oil almost disappears immediately. Last but not least, after three nights of use, the hard, rough skin around the soles of my feet was almost as soft as the skin on other unaffected parts of my feet. This is a big bonus to me, as many other brand I have used showed no visible results after one month of use. I do however need to mention that I’m sure the cotton socks play a major part in the efficacy of the product as they seal in the moisture properly. A definite next time buy on my cosmetics list and the remainder of my trial product is a great way to ensure that my feet will be sandal and flip flop ready for summer…

First off, the smell is absolutely divine! I literally could not stop smelling the cream! The product itself is very smooth and soft, and rubs on easily. After I put the blue cream on my feet, I put my socks on so that it could be absorbed intensely! My cracked heels and dry feet will be defeated! The packaging is nice & attractive and opens very easily, great size for your handbag, but I keep it on my nightstand. When I used it for the first time after a nice warm bath, it made my feet feel clean, soothed and relaxed, and made me want to climb into bed straight away! My feet felt amazing the next morning so I put the cream on again and everyone asked at my work, who smells so nice?! Me, my feet of course! So, whether you are young or old this product will work for you as a foot moisturizer or if your are wanting to treat your cracked heels, it’s a definite must have! I’ll have to put it on my shopping list for next month, as it will only last until then for me. Oh so heavenly is the right way to describe it!
