I ordered this when it was on offer a few months ago in the AVON catalogue, when it arrived I did the usual flip open the lid, quick sniff and through it in my drawer :) Then after a long weekend away, doing ALOT of walking I need to soften my feet, a sudden brainwave occured that I had some so I rumaged around in my jungle of cosmetics and found my foot cream.
I sat down and squirted this watery cream onto my feet. It took a while to rub it all into my skin, most of which ended up on the cushion my foot was resting on.....so now my cushion smells lovely and fruity - one of the only things I like about this lotion. My feet really didnt feel soft and I honestly dont know where this whole "ice" thing came from, I was expecting it to be nice and cool.
I was going to buy the whole set of items (purely and simply because I love fruity scents, especially cherry!) and am quite glad that I didn't. The set included foot spray and exfoliator - whether my feet would of been alot softer if I had used all three I really don't know.
A while ago now I ordered a few foot works products from my Avon brochure as I was rather excited about the new cherry ice variety that had been advertised as of late. I seen this moisturising lotion advertised as being on sale for around £1.50 so I decided to order it and give it a go. The product is normally around £3.50 to buy.
The cream comes in a 75ml white tube which has a clear plastic screw lid which can be very difficult to screw back on when you have cream on your hands. The front of the bottle has a picture of a foot and some red cherries on and it looks rather attractive although it probably would stand out to me on a shelf in a shop.
The cream inside is baby pink and as soon as you unscrew the lid the sweet smell of cherries hits you, unlike the cooling foot spray this scent is fruity and dominant. The cream itself is of medium consistency and can be applied easily to the feet with no mess or leaks. I use moisturising sock when I apply this cream as I think it gives it the full benefits and they can also be purchased from Avon for about £2.50.
This cream really does work as it leaves my feet really silky soft with an added subtle cherry scent which is lovely. I would definitely recommend this cream, it smoothes and conditions the feet and leaves them smelling yummy.
I've been meaning to review this item for a couple of weeks now, but as I found this product just 'passable' it does rather de-motivates me when coming to review it. So here it goes...
Some reviews back I reviewed a couple of Avon Foot Works products at the time I purchased the Cherry Ice Cooling foot spray, the exfoliater (which I reviewed both) and the cherry ice foot moisturising lotion.
Avon Foot Works Cherry Ice Moisturising Lotion:
'This non-greasy cream provides 24 hour moisture for your feet, leaving skin feeling velvety soft' (so they say)
As I do like to look after my feet when I was browsing the Avon catalogue I came across the Cherry Ice Foot Works set, when reading what they did (should do anyway!) I had an impulse buy and purchased all three items for £1.80 each. Which at the time I thought this was really good value, until I tried them that is.
It is recommended that you first use the matching exfoilater and once feet are dry to apply the moisturising lotion. On first impressions I found the lotion to be of a runny consistency, this didn't bother me to much you just have to be careful when squeezing the tube to get the lotion out.
The smell from the lotion hits you straight away with a fresh rich cherry aroma which I really liked as I love fruity scents. But when it came to rubbing the lotion into my foot I didn't use too much lotion and I was rubbing for ages as it took awhile to absorb and even then after much rubbing it still left a greasy feeling to the bottom of my feet.
So I sat with no socks or slippers on for awhile in hoping that the lotion would finally absorb which it did after a couple of hours waiting! Good job I had no plans for the day, as if I were to be heading out having to put socks and shoes on would make it feel like I still had wet feet.
When the lotion had been on for a few hours my feet felt normal, no velvety soft feeling which it claimed I would. I would have been better off just using my body lotion/butter which gives me a better out come.
How to use:
Gently massage into clean dry feet until fully absorbed. (Will be rubbing for a while be warned)
Price and Availability:
As this is an Avon product it can only be purchased from an Avon representative or from the Avon website. However if you do order from their website delivery costs apply, starting from £3.50 as price is based on your location.
You can also pick up Avon products from eBay as if it's only the one item you want you may get it cheaper from eBay.
The normal price of this moisturising lotion is £4.50 however is on offer most of the time. Right now it's on offer for any two foot works products for £4.00. When I purchased mine they had it on another special offer of only £1.80 each which I think is more justifiable than £4.50!
The packaging is very simple and with like most Avon products in different languages on the tube. It looks just like the photo above. One thing I found out is on the tube it states this product was made in Poland, just like the other Foot Works Products I tested and I always thought that Avon products were made in England.
Warning on the packaging states 'Keep out of reach of children and avoid contact with eyes'
Overall the only thing I liked about this lotion was the lovely rich fruity smell of cherries, but other than that it's a very poor moisturiser not effective at all; which I would not be recommending to anyone. The price when not on offer I think is very expensive for a product that gives you very poor results.
I will not be purchasing this again, nor do I think I will purchase from Avon ever again as the products are either rubbish or irritate my skin.
One star out of five from me
Thanks for reading :o)

I like to use Foot Cream quite often. Since my feet are in trainers most of the time I feel that they don't have the best chance to breath, so I like a slick of Cream to freshen them up and to have them in thin cotton Socks to let the Cream hopefully soak in.
This is part of the Avon Foot Works range and the newest scent. I would probably say it is my favourite one, but the Green Tea one is nice as well.
This comes in a 75ml tube and the right price of this is £4.50. I really don't think it is worth all that, but I got it for £1.80, which is a price offer that i've seen it on often.
The tube is easy to squeeze. It stands on it's end and the lid is easy to twist off. The colouring on here is white with a little picture of a Cherry on the front. All looks ok but not really too expensive looking.
This is not too thick a cream, but a little covers a large enough area. This feels slightly greasy but not too much. It rubs in easy enough and although my feet seem that bit greasy when I pop them into the Avon Socks they aren't dripping with Cream or that. The Cream seems to sink in quick enough which is ideal.
This has a light Cherry scent to it. It isn't too strong, but there is a nice hint of a scent which you can smell ever so slightly later on after using this as well.
This seems to Moisturise my Feet well enough, and with continued use it seems to work away at my dry skin on my feet and make them feel that bit softer and nicer.
Any regular readers of my reviews will be aware by now that I work part time as an Avon representative when my health restraints allow. This means that I have access to all of the great offers
that are available in the Avon brochures.
In order to get my feet prepared for summer, I have been trying to take care of them a little better than I normally would. This has meant that I have been busy with filing my nails, applying polish, and of course applying foot cream to 'soften' problem areas. When I say problem areas, I am referring to my heel mainly as it is slightly rough when compared to the rest of my foot. I would point out though - in case it is of relevance to fellow consumers when considering buying a foot care product like the one I am reviewing here - that my heels are not sore or cracked, nor do they have hard skin on them or anything.
When I noticed recently that my current foot cream product was almost finished, I promptly ordered a replacement product from my Avon brochure, selecting the Cherry Ice moisturising lotion from the Avon 'Footworks' range of pedicure accessories and treatments. I have tried and tested several items from the Avon Footworks range in the past and am usually impressed with the quality of the products.
When the tube of lotion arrived from Avon, I was impressed with the packaging as it appeared to be quite a girly product. The tube of cream looks exactly like in the picture on top of the Dooyoo page, and I think the tube looks summery and bright. The tube stands on its lid, which is made of durable plastic and I didn't find that I had any problems with opening or closing the tube.
When it came to using the cream itself, I was suitably impressed with this too. I tend to have a bath at night time most nights, and I like to apply the foot cream afterwards. I found that the Avon cherry foot cream was a sort of off-white colour, and it had quite a good consistency to it - I didn't feel that the cream was running about all over the place once I squeezed it from the tube, and neither did it feel like a putty or lard-like substance in my hand!
The cream felt very pleasant as I applied it to my hot, tired feet and I felt that it was absorbed into my skin with ease. I didn't feel I had to rub my feet for ages to get the cream absorbed into my skin, which is always a huge bonus in my book! The scent of the cream was very pleasant, although to be honest I thought the fragrance was more a general 'fruity' scent rather than something that is completely like a cherry fragrance. That said, I wasn't at all disappointed as I felt the scent of the foot cream was very pleasant, whilst not being at all over-bearing or 'too much'.
A short time after I had applied the cream, I felt that the skin on my feet was softened and moisturised as I would expect. I didn't feel that there was a huge amount of greasy residue that had been left on my feet, which is a significant problem I have had with alternative foot creams I have used in the past.
The Cherry Ice foot lotion is marketed by Avon as providing 24 hour moisture to your feet and this is a statement that I would agree with to a point. I'm not sure about a 24 hour period, but I do feel that if I have applied the Cherry lotion to my feet at night time then my feet do still feel softened and moisturised the following morning.
I tend to use the Avon cherry foot lotion every second night and I have found that there has been an improvement to the skin on my heels. To be fair though, I have only recently started to get into the habit of applying my foot cream again (in preparation for summer as I said earlier) and so really I feel that any lotion or cream that I applied to my feet at this point in time would make a marked improvement to the way they were.
In summary, I think that the Cherry foot lotion from Avon is a nice product to use, it feels nice on my skin and I will probably buy it again, but only if it is on offer. I couldn't say that it's the best product I have ever used on my feet, but its certainly not the worst either!
The Cherry Ice is a new fragrance that has been added to the Avon Footworks range, and they have a few co-ordinating products to match this foot lotion such as a spray and a foot scrub.
I paid £2.50 for the 75ml tube of foot cream in a recent Avon brochure. The normal price is £4.50, so I would suggest looking out for offers which are fairly frequent in the Avon Footworks range.
You can order the product online from www.avonshop.co.uk, or you can buy it directly from your local Avon representative.
I bought this a few weeks ago from the Avon brochure. It is still available and althought it usually retails at £3.50 it can usually be found on some sort of offer (at the moment I think it is selling for £1.50).
It is part of a range of footcare which includes cherry ice cooling spray and also a foot scrub. I had the whole range of the last edition (vanilla brown sugar) so this time I just opted for the cream as I found this was what I used the most.
The picture dooyoo have put above is just right, the cream comes in a tube with the lid down, making it easy to squeeze out the last bits. There is a screw cap which is easy to get off meaning there will never be any mess left on the shelf. The hole to squeeze the product out of is just the right size - you never get too much or not enough and you have quite a bit of control over what you end up with.
Squirting the cream out I noticed it was a cream in colour and smelt of cherries, the smell was not overbearing but infact a rather pleasent one. Im not a big fan of cherries but I liked this smell. The consistency of the cream was quite thick.
Rubbing in the cream, it was easy to rub in and disappeared quite quickly. In the past I have bought foot creams where I'm stuck with sticky feet for ages but this is not the case with this foot cream and instead it is gone within seconds meaning I can get on with whatever I was doing.
It feels nice and smooth and cool on my feet which is lovely after a hard day and my feel as though they have been pampered. Immediately afterwards the skin on my feet feels soft and more supple getting rid of a lot of the hard skin. This smoothness lasts around 12 hours when I have found you will need to reapply.
I originally bought this cream in order to get my feet ready for summer. However, I have not used the cream as religiously as intended (probably only once a week!) so my feet are not in the condition I wanted them to be in. To begin with I did use the cream properly and my feet were noticably smoother and softer and a lot of the dry skin had gone so I know this product does work - you just need to have more willpower than me and not be lazy!
I would recommend this cream, it is good value for money (when on offer) and does the job its supposed to. Whats more, if you dont get on with the product you can always send it back to avon up to 90 days after purchase - you have nothing to lose!
