As soon as it gets a little bit warm outside I'm wearing sandals, and sandals only. Well, I guess that's a lie because I'm often barefoot so the truth is that my feet are always out and on display. I personally don't make it a habit of looking at the feet of other people so I assume they don't look at mine but I like to keep them as soft and as smooth as I possibly can for myself and the off chance that someone might take a peek. Rough feet aren't very nice. They feel gross and downright unpleasant so I like to use products that help me out because I really need it.
You might remember me talking about a brand called Kneipp in January. I posted a review sharing my thoughts on a couple of their Lavender products that help to calm and relax. Well, Kneipp makes a wide array of products. They have so many different products that can be used to help out with so many different problems. Today, however, I want to focus specifically on their foot care.
Like I said, my feet need help and last week I received the Calendula and Orange Mineral Foot Bath Salt and the Calendula and Orange Foot Repair Butter.
Kneipp's line of foot care products consists of foot creams and bath salts. The line was developed with podiatrists and is made with ingredients like calendula and marigold. They are scented with plant ingredients like citrus and ginger. The line is great for pampering your feet but it's also safe enough for diabetics, so it's good for any and all little tootsies.
The Calendula and Orange Mineral Foot Bath Salt smells so ridiculously strong. I don't really enjoy the scent but the actual salts make a really great foot soak. I like to do it before I shower so I can reap the benefits while still being able to wash off the smell. I use this in a weird way. I fill the sink with hot water, add the salts and then soak. The sink is the weird part. It makes my feet feel so much better! It makes them feel so much softer and then to shower and lock the new softness in with the foot butter (which I'm getting to next). This is the perfect pampering treat.
The Calendula and Orange Foot Repair Butter has a much more gentle scent. It's a bit medicinal smelling. It's not offensive at all and I actually like it. It has both citrus notes and notes of menthol. It reminds me a little of a citronella candle, but in a miss less in your face kind of way. That's probably a horrible description. It's something I've been using nightly. I slather it on, put on some socks, and call it a night. It has left my feet really soft. It is a rich, thick, protective cream that provides long-lasting hydration and softness. It's the perfect conditioner. The texture and formula are fantastic.
