“ Brand: Avon / Type: Foot Spray „
I ordered this in the latest Avon brochure on a 3 for £5 offer. I walk a lot and I also run which leaves my feet sometimes feeling a bit sore and throbbing. I have bought a lot of Footworks products in the last few brochures this was one I hadn't tried.
The spray comes in a white bottle with a green label. The bottle contains 100ml of spray. It is described as a cooling spray on the bottle.
The spray contains green and mint which deodorise cool and refresh the feet.
To use the spread it is recommended you spray about 15cm away from the foot you can also apply this to your lower legs. Then you need to allow it to dry.
The spray dispenses evenly. I couldn't smell hardly any mint in this. In fact it smelt solely of tea tree to me. Not that it is unpleasant as I like the smell of tea tree.
The first time I used this was two weeks ago after a trip to Drayton Manor and Thomas Land. We walked around from 9.30am until 6pm it was a very hot day and my feet were sore, burning and hot from all the walking and queuing. I popped this in my bag as I knew my feet would ache at the end of the day. When I got back to the car I spritzed this on my feet and the relief was instant, it didn't take away the ache but it certainly helped to relieve it. The cooling effect was also really refreshing on my feet.
Another thing I like about this spray is that is has deodorising properties, I have a lot of Converse shoes and I wear them most days I am fortunate I can wear what I like to work. The downside is with 3/4 jeans and dresses I don t like wearing socks. This means my feet stink and it's not very pleasant I have noticed this makes a big difference to how my feet smell, they certainly aren't as unplesant anymore! I have also noticed a quick spritz in my shoes make them smell fresher.
I would recommend this spray it is great for people on their feet all day.
5 out of 5
During the recent heat wave I suffered terribly with hot and swollen feet, which would pulsate and cause me considerable discomfort. Whilst the problem was easier to manage at home due to it being much cooler, I struggled whilst in work due to the lack of air conditioning in addition to the fact that I'm on my feet for a good part of the working day. I regularly use foot cooling sprays for such occasions and whilst I generally tend to use one belonging to Boots, I decided to order one from the Avon Foot Works range, as I liked the inclusion of green tea and mint.
We are provided with 100 ml of spray, which is contained within a sturdy plastic bottle with a pump action dispenser. The appearance of the packaging is extremely pleasing to the eyes due to its combination of calming greens together with bare foot prints. In addition to cooling and refreshing tired and aching feet, the product claims to be deodorising due to its mint content.
The pump is easy to operate and I hold the bottle approximately 15 cm from my foot with the fine mist spray being sufficient to cover both the underside and top side with two presses. The liquid offers the most wonderful cooling sensation especially on a hot summer's day and I am instantly able to obtain relief for my poor aching feet. The liquid dries within a few seconds, so there's no waiting around before I am able to slip my feet back into my shoes.
The scent is initially quite subtle, but the aroma of green tea is immediately evident although I cannot admit to being able to recognise the mint. I found that when walking around, the mint aroma became evident albeit very delicate with the most prominent aroma being the green tea, which lingers for a couple of hours following application. I found the scent extremely favourable, as it reminded me of a quality green tea eau de toilette. Whilst I would like to be able to confirm whether the claimed deodorising effects are true, unfortunately, I am unable to do so, as thankfully I do not suffer with pongy feet.
There were many occasions during the hot weather that I used the spray on my legs and underneath my top, as I loved the instant cooling effect and I cannot speak of suffering any dryness or irritation to my skin whilst using. In fact, I found the surface of my skin was considerably smooth directly following application. The spray can also be used to freshen shoes and whilst I tried this on one occasion, I found that it took a little while to dry.
There is a fairly lengthy list of ingredients displayed on the reverse of the bottle; one of which is glycerine, so the spray clearly offers some hydration. I would also advise that the spray contains alcohol, so for obvious reasons it should not be used on broken skin. I regularly used the cooling spray during the hot weather as it was a real life saver for me with it assisting to take away some of the inflammation in my feet due to its wonderful cooling effects. Despite me using a fair amount, there is still a lot remaining in my bottle and if the Bank Holiday weather forecast is correct, I will be reaching for it again.
I can highly recommend Avon Foot Works Green Tea and Mint Cooling Spray, which normally retails at £4.50 for a 100 ml bottle. However, at the time of writing, you can purchase three products from the Senses and Foot Works range for just £5 with the offer being available online and from your local representative.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
