“ Brand: Scholl / Type: Foot care / Dosage Form: Cream / Subtype: Treatment „
I have horrible feet. I get corns, blisters and disgusting dry skin especially on my heels. I have bought a few different products over the years to try and sort it out but no matter what I buy it always comes back even after I have sloughed away the dead skin.
Scholl is a brand that I rate quite highly as they are a specialist foot care company so I know when I buy something from them I am getting something that is going to be targeting my specific problem.
The intensive night treatment is a treatment cream that is especially designed to target dry skin on the feet overnight leaving them moisturised and in better condition.
The reason I bought this intensive night cream was because it came with socks and is the same concept as when you use gloves with a hand cream to allow the cream to penetrate the skin deeper. It was a while ago I bought the cream and it cost me in the region of £6.
The cream was quite thick and really greasy like an emollient and it spread on my feet easily and didn't just absorb but instead just sat on the top layer of my skin. The socks that came with the cream are designed to be worn overnight and really did help with the cream being absorbed and in the morning there was no cream left on my skin and had all been absorbed.
I only bought this the once as I wasn't all that impressed with it. Yes it did leave my feet feeling a lot softer and smoother but it didn't do much to actually get rid of the dry skin and after a few hours the skin was dry again. I have used much better foot cream than this one and I didn't think it was moisturising enough especially if like me you suffer from extremely dry skin.
The other thing that I didn't like was that the socks that came with the cream were too small and tight for me and I had to really stretch them to get them on my feet. Admittedly my feet are a size 10 I still think that they should have been designed to fit a wider range of feet sizes as they were actually uncomfortable to wear.
Personally I wouldn't bother with this cream and would just use some E45 instead with some clingfilm as it will do the same job and an emollient cream will probably actually do a better job of moisturising your feet.
Feet. The ugliest part of anyone's body in my opinion and especially mine feet! No matter what I do I always have dry heels on the bottom of my feet which I cannot get rid of using anything. Now in the Winter that's just fine as my Ugg boots hide them nicely but when its nice weather outside and I want to bare my tootsies in a pair of flip flops or gladiators serious things have to be done to get my feet looking good enough to go out in and even though every other product in the past hasn't worked I am still on the lookout for the perfect foot cream and that is why I picked up this "Scholl Intensive Night Treatment Cream" about 2 months ago when we had all that nice weather.
Price: Around £6 for 50ml bottle of cream - you are supposed to get socks in the pack but mine didn't! :[
Stockists: Scholl, Boots & Amazon
This cream is actually designed to be only used once a week but I suppose the worse your feet are the more you use it. Mine weren't to bad but I wanted quick results so I used this every night over about a week long period.
The cream comes in a small pump top bottle which is great because it means you only use as much as you need each time without any waste. Nothing spectacular about the bottle shape or design but it fits the purpose I suppose and is just normal. The cream itself is said to be dermatologically tested, enriched with vitamins and minerals which your skin needs in order to soften, the cream is said to work better when you wear socks over the top & it does work best when used overnight. So I took all those things into consideration when I was using this and I can now honestly say even with all those things...it still didn't work.
To use this cream you simply get a dollop on your hand and then rub into the hard parts of your foot in circular motions and then cover with bed socks or cotton socks while you sleep and let the cream do its job. The cream is quite thick which to be honest I expected from an "intensive" cream and it wont sink in right away but slowly overnight so you are supposed to have dead smooth feet by the morning. I however didn't really see any positive results at all.
Now I do go on about my feet but compared to how they could be I don't think they are in as bad condition as I make out it is just the very back cracked heel that annoys me and that was the part I wanted to get rid of the most. I used this for a week every night as I thought I would benefit from prolonged use but after doing so my feet honestly didn't look or feel any different. The tops of my feet felt smoother but the bottom was still dry and cracked so overall this was a fail for me. Maybe I do have really bad feet that cant be cured - or maybe I need something better than this! Due to my experience I don't recommend this as it didn't do squat for my feet and mine aren't even that bad! What as waste of time and money.
Don't bother with this one. Thanks For Reading.

I don't know when the heels of my feet started to become cracked and sore. It was like it occured over night because I know once upon a time I used to have fine skin on the heels of my feet. When I noticed (or my Mum kindly pointed out in her blunt manner) I was horrified. There is nothing worse than the summer coming up and your heels looking like a chunk of Wensleydale. I needed something to fix my feet and fast.
Off I tottered to Boots (with my feet firmly covered up) and looked through all their foot treatments. I came acrss the School Intensive Night Treatment cream in a little white box. It looked fairly posh sitting there on the shelf and had a little label in front of it telling me it was on offer from its usual price of £5.99 to £3.50. So I picked it up and paid, hoping that it would do something for my ruined feet.
After soaking my feet in a nice hot bath, I got out and sat in front of the TV to apply it. In the box is the cream itself (50ml) which as with all Scholl products is dermotologically tested and is in a plain pump bottle with the label on the front and a pair of white socks which are reusable and one size (4-8).
To use this cream, you have to massage it in the affected area. You then pop the socks on to lock in the moisture of the cream and wear them overnight. I hate wearing socks in bed but I really needed to use this cream if I had any hope of making my feet look and feel any better. I was going to attempt doing it in the day but I am always on my feet doing something and I thought this may affect the results.
The cream comes out of the pump bottle very easily and is nice and thick. It isn't greasy and is very smooth. There are no exfoaliating bits in the cream. It is unscented.
I used this cream every night for 2 weeks and the results were unbelievable. The cracks in my heels started to disappear and they started to feel smoother and look more cared for. I can honestly say a 2 months later (and the occassional use in between), the heels of my feet look lovely and actually resemble feet and not a piece of cheese! No longer dry, cracked or having a share of hard skin, I have worn flip flops all summer and been proud of my feet.
Good product from Scholl which earns 5 stars!
If you have read my other reviews, you will know about my problem with dry hands. Well, I had the same problem with dry feet too. When I lie on a woollen bed with no socks on, I can feel my skin catching on to the sheets. It was not right at all. I heard about scholl myself, and no, it wasn't mum who recommended it this time! Scholl night cream is supposed to help with the treatment of dry feet and mostly cracked heals. It becomes irritating because the dry skin can become painful over time especially after bathing. It becomes embarrassing and the only good that comes from it is being able to walk across roasting hot sand bare footed! Then again, you can just use sandals. But y'know some folk.
School treats dry feet but dry feet can be caused by many different factors. It can be caused by dehydration and different soap products used on the feet. But, it can also be linked to skin diseases so don't jump to conclusions and if it's becoming a big problem, consult your GP.
The night cream is supposed to be placed on over night so it can dehydrate the dry skin and restore it to it's natural self. T comes in a 50ml tub in a cardboard box, I bought this online from a health site, but I have seen them before in places such as boots. I bought mine for £6 but you may find it cheaper in big supermarkets.
It comes with socks which are 50% nylon and 50% polyester. I found them a bit big for me but they didn't exactly fall off. I didn't like the texture of this cream as I found it so be very greasy. However, the socks really were a great help and you don't have to sit around and wait for it to dry because you can just stick the socks on and wait for it to do it's "magic". I applied a lot of the cream on and rubbed it in for a while to allow my skin to make the most of it. I placed it around the heals and also underneath the toes as I always walk on my tip-toes so the skin there isn't the best.
When I woke up in the morning, most of the cream had been absorbed, apart from a little bit that still remained inside the socks., I felt the socks absorbed a lot of it, ruining the logic of them. I didn't notice any changes in my feet, but I gave it a week to try and see if it would help. At one point I had to use a pair of my won socks as they were starting to get a bit smelly and they needed a good wash!
I noticed my feet were a little bit better. But I expected better results for the money I paid. I now use an alternative brand to this and I wouldn't consider using this again.
When I decided to inflict my cracked heels on society again this summer, I thought I should get them looking a bit more presentable first. Having used Scholl products before, mainly products for blisters etc, then I thought I'd give their Intense Night Treatment Cream for feet a try.
I bought this product from my local Boots store and paid around £3.20 for a pack, which I thought was good as I'm sure it's normally more expensive, around £5 per item. I thought this would be a nice intense treatment for my feet, and I imagined that treating them at night would be more beneficial as it's at that time where you're feet are most rested and able to recover. This product is also dermatologically tested which means it should give any rashy side effects.
Included with the pump action bottle of cream itself is a pair of thin socks - the socks are made of a polyestser and nylon mix and they feel very soft and thin. The aim of the socks is to go onto your feet once you have applied the cream to them. The cream is very rich and thick, and is dispensed out of the top of the pump. It rubbed into my feet nice and easily, and felt very cooling (that might just be my cold house though!) It didn't smell of anything at all, which was fine by me as it didn't smell chemically which I wouldn't have liked.
After I used the Intensive Night Cream, underneath the socks, I went to bed. The next day my feet felt gorgeous, they were wonderfully soft and smooth, and the dry skin on my heels was hardly noticable. The improvement in the condition of my feet was massive and I was very pleased with the results. I finally had very moisturised and soft feet that felt nourished and healthy.
The socks can be washed in the washing machine (or handwashed if you prefer) and reused again for each application, but to be honest I haven't needed to use this product for a good month as my feet were in such good condition after using the treatment only once. Highly recommended!
Summer time is flip-flop time for me and also the time to give my feet an extra special treatment. Suffering from blisters and sore spots is already enough but my feet also look horrible after the long winter with heavy trainers and thick socks. The skin on my heels looks very cracked and is plain unattractive. My flatmate recommended Scholls Intensive Night Treatment, a nourishing cream that is applied over night and is supposed to give you smooth skin after only a few nights of usage.
For around 4 pounds I bought the small pack which contains 50ml of nourishing lotion and a pair of one size socks (size 4 to 8) which are washable. The lotion feels like usual body lotion and has a pleasant fragrance. The socks fit well and are supposedly designed to aid the absorption of the lotion.
----- Did it work? -----
It took a few nights of using the cream to feel a real long lasting differences. However right after the first night the skin on my feet started to feel softer; visible results took around 5 nights.
My skin certainly looks a lot smoother and more pampered than before, a lovely feeling when you can wear flip-flops without being embarrassed about the look of your feet.
The lotion did not cause any allergic reactions and I did not experience any other side effects or skin irritations.
----- Would I buy it again? -----
Although I really liked the Scholl Intensive Night Treatment cream I will not buy it again. I compared the results I got when using the rather pricey original with normal body butter and could not really see or feel a difference. My recommendation is to buy a cheap body butter at Boots or any other cosmetic shop, apply it to your feet every night and wear an old pair of socks to protect you bed linen; I got exactly the same results - lovely soft feet with smooth skin.
There is nothing wrong with the Scholl product, it is just a bit too expensive for me when you can get the same results using your usual body lotion.
Therefore I can only give it 07 out of 10 possible points.
Thank you very much for reading and rating my review.
My feet have aways had really hard skin and I suffer from cracked heels so as summer was approaching I decided to try and get my feet into a beter condition. I've used Scholl products before so though I would try this one. I bought it from Boots and it was on offer at £3.30. I think it usually costs £4-5.
The cream is to be used overnight and the pack comes complete with a pair of socks to be worn once the cream has been applied. The packaging is plain and simple, very clean looking and the cream comes in a white bottle with a pump top lid.
The cream has been dermatologically tested and it has a nourishing hydro-lipid complex to help moisturise.
The socks are washable ( at 40), breathable and re-useable. They are made from 50% polyester and 50% nylon and come in a standard size 4-8.
The idea is to apply the cream to the feet and massage it in. Then wear the socks overnight. The conditioning treatment will seal in moisture on your feet and restore softness. The socks are designed to increase the intensity of the cream.
The cream is nice and thick, it is easy to apply and doesn't leave behind any greasy residue. It doesn't really have a fragrance, just a faint smell of freshness.
After using the scholl cream I found my feet to be incredibly smooth and soft. I have used this every night before going to bed and my heels have also improved slightly ( bearing in mind that this cream is just to nourish and rehydrate this is pretty good!). My feet don't have any hard skin on them anymore and they are no longer dry, instead I am now proud to show them off!
I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from dry and cracked skin on their feet, or even just someone who likes to be pampered.
I get a lot of hard dry skin on my feet so I was looking for something heavier then a normal foot cream. I came across Scholl's Intensive Night Treatment.
It's in a white plastic container and to get the product out there is a pump nozzle. I find the nozzle fairly tough to press down but it does ensure that I don't end up with too much of the moisturiser making it more economical.
The moisturiser is thick, white and does not have a strong smell to it.
It is recommended that you apply, by massaging into the feet in small circular movements, on a night time, cover with socks and leave on over night, which is what I do. But for a quick fix you can use it for one hour. It is fairly greasy so I would personally would not use it during the day, but that is not what it was designed for anyway, unless using it for a quick fix.
The Night treatment is enriched with vitamins and hydro-lipids to nourish and moisturise your feet.
You can purchase this product from various stores on line. I got mine from Amazon and included the socks for £5.99. It contained 50ml of the actual Intensive treatment. This lasts for quite a while as its recommended to be used just once a week.
It has made a difference, my feet are much smoother. I also found it worked really well on my hands too as an over night treatment too (I put gloves on over the top).
