Burt's Bees Foot Lotion Peppermint
Advantages: Cooling and refreshing
Disadvantages: None in my opinion
In the summer my feet get hot after a long day at work and I use Burt's Bees peppermint foot lotion to help relieve them. You can pick up a 100ml tube of the lotion for around £11.99 in most major department stores and also on Amazon and in Boots.
The lotion comes in a white plastic tube that is decorated with flowers and leaves. It has a screw top plastic lid that is easy to use and does not clogg. The tube dispenses the product well and can be stood on its lid. As will all Burt's Bees products the ingredients are not tested on animals and they do not use and parabens, sulphates, phthlates or petrochemicals. The ingredients of the peppermint foot lotion are:
aqua (water, eau), helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, glycerin, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, cera alba (beeswax, cire d'abeille), mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, stearic acid, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) bark extract, sodium bicarbonate, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, carum petroselinum (parsley) leaf oil, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (sweet orange) peel wax, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, tocopherol, parfum (fragrance), sucrose stearate, glucose, xanthan gum, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil (huile de colza), sodium borate, sodium chloride, glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase, limonene
The product is very thick in consistency, not as I thought a lotion would be, these tend to be thinner in consistency in my experience. The lotion is easily absorbed into my feet and after a few moments you get a tingly feeling all over the foot which is very refreshing, cooling and soothing on my tired feet. The smell of peppermint is very strong and tends to linger for quite sometime. I find that the lotion is also very good at softening your skin and I sometimes put on an bit extra, put a pair of socks on and leave for a while, which helps to make my feet even softer, the fact that the lotion contains beewax helps to soften any hard skin you may have on your heels as well.
The lotion contains white hazel and tea tree along with parsley and sodium bicarbonate that is supposed to prevent and help with foot odour, though I cannot comment on how effective this is as in summer I tend to wear sandals and do not suffer with smelly feet.
Overall I would recommend this product to others, it helps relieve achy and tired feet, whilst having the added benefit of moisturizing them, it is well priced and smells great, plus the product does not contain any nasty chemicals.
Summary: Effective foot treatment
