      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A budget foot cream that not only works, but smells good and lasts a long time!

      I have been using Avon Footworks Deep Moisturising Cream for about a year now and I can't rate it highly enough. It currently sells at between £1.75 and £4 for 75ml depending on whether it is on offer or not. Even at £4 I think this cream is worth it, but I do tend to wait until there is an offer on and just stock up then.

      The packaging is nice and simple as shown in the picture and the lid is a screw top, so no chance of the cream squirting out all over your cupboards/drawers.

      The cream itself is quite heavily scented with a minty/spicy smell. I can't quite pinpoint what it is, but it isn't offensive. It's white and kind of shiny and quite thick. When applied to your feet it takes quite a long time to sink in, but I usually use this just before bed and pop on some cotton socks (also available from AVON) to keep the cream in contact with my skin. When I remove the socks in the morning my feet were lovely and soft and stayed that way all day......so it must work!

      It takes quite a lot for me to like a footcream, as I have tried several of the big brands and not been impressed, by the product or price. My feet are generally quite rough as I do a lot of walking, so it is nice to find a product that can counteract that. I find this product goes a long way as I only need to use it a couple of nights a week, and not every night like some others. So I reckon a 75ml tube lasts me a month if not longer.

      All in all a fab product at a great price!

      Good product for the price but don't expect miracles!

      I have horrible feet. Full stop. So when I got my Avon catalogue through and there was an offer on foot products I decided to dive right in and see what I could do!

      I bought this product on offer at £2.25 for a 75ml tube. I think thats a fairly reasonable price to try something once!

      The packaging is basic with a screw top and you simply squeeze the product out as you would toothpaste! The only problem with it being a screw top rather than a flip top is that when you come to screw the lid back on again after use you need to make sure you wipe your hands otherwise it is slightly more tricky due to the extra lubrication!

      The product itself; a thicker than average cream that doesn't start to "run" when you squeeze it out. A lovely peppermint smell. Easy to apply and I find it soothes tired feet as well as moisturises. Rubs in fairly well, but as I tend to find with most foot creams, it does tend to not completely soak in.

      Application is recommended before you go to bed - so I would suggest you wear bedsocks otherwise you will end up with cream all over your sheets!

      Overall I find this a pleasant smelling cream which refreshes your feet after use, whether it is deeply penetrating moisturiser - well possibly if you have taken good care of your feet previously. If you have abused them with small shoes, cheap shoes and high heels - I'd say you need to use this product after using a pumice stone or the like!

      Disadvantages

      Worth buying if on special offer.

      I was going through of phase of trying anything and everything to get the perfect feet. It was at the beginning of the summer and I spent a wide variety of money on trying to get decent feet. I found a few good products, but mostly they cost more money. My Mum, knowing the latest phase I was going through, bought this for me to give a go when it was on special offer, buy one get one free.

      The cream comes in an almost medicated, very non exciting packaging. It looks like somethign the doctor would prescribe. It is a screw top tube, that can stand up on its top. It is easy to squeeze the cream out, but not so easy once you get to the end of the tube to get the remnants out.

      The cream has a very mild smell, again almost medical. A few squeezes was enough to cover both my feet. I would rub it almost all in and then put some cotton pedicure socks on which open the pores and encourage moisture to be retained.

      The next day I had pleasing results, my feet were very moisturised. I am not sure if this result could be replicated by normal moisturising cream, Ill have to try both and compare. The bonus was the price, at buy one get one free it was a bargain. Worth buying if on offer.

        A Wicked Foot Cream That Will Make Your Feet Proper Soft

        I do quite a lot of walking and this leaves the skin on my feet a bit hard sometimes so I use this deep moisturising cream from Avons Foot Works collection every few nights before I go to bed and then put a pair of cotton socks over it to keep the cream in contact with my skin.

        It has got a proper nice smell that is mildly spicy and a bit like the mixed peel my mum puts into her fruit cake. It's lovely and the smell lasts for a bit longer than foot creams that just have a plain cream smell.

        It's a dead thick cream that doesn't absorb into the skin on my feet that well but I reckon that's good and that's why I put the socks on after. It's thick and creamy and I love rubbing it in because straight away my skin starts feeling softer.

        When I get up in the morning my feet feel proper soft and the feeling lasts for about 3 days and when they start feeling hard again I just put some more on to get the softness back. Even though it's thick it's not a dead greasy cream and is more creamy and soft than anything.

        The skin on my feet is in better condition than it has ever been since I started using this and I don't even mind paying the full price of £3.50 because it's such a brill cream and does the job proper well. Soemtimes it's on special offer but not very often but I'll still carry on buying it even if they put the price up because it's the best food moisturising cream I've used.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A very good value, efficient foot cream...

          Any regular readers of my reviews will be aware by now that I work as an Avon Representative when my health issues allow. Because I am a Rep, it means that I have regular access to many different Avon products and of course many of those brilliant promotions and great deals that can regularly be found across the pages of the latest Avon brochure!

          There are several brands within Avon that I use regularly, some are of course better than others but one brand that I had never before tried was the 'Avon Foot works' range of toiletries.

          I have tried a few items from this range recently, and one such product is the 'Deep Moisturising Cream'. I was inclined to try this product out, after I had read a few reviews on Dooyoo, which seemed to favour the cream quite highly.


          ** ABOUT FOOTWORKS PRODUCTS **

          The Foot works brand has been around in Avon brochures for years - as long as I can remember actually. As the years have gone on, the branding seems to have improved, and has been given a much 'sharper' looking image over the past year or two.

          Also, the range of products has improved in terms of the products available to buy within the range. What was once a half-a-page worth of catalogue options is now generously displayed over a double- paged spread.

          The range itself covers everything from those little silicone 'pads' that can be inserted into your high heels to protect your feet on a night out after too much dancing, to moisture creams and sprays, solutions and lotions.

          The range is very affordable too, much more so than I remember it being before. With many of the items falling under the £5 mark, it means that one can treat oneself on a regular basis. The addition of regular offers on individual items within the range, and on the range itself means that we can pick and choose several items for a very affordable sum. An example of one such offer is when a recent brochure offered every item in the Foot works range at half price, meaning that we as the consumer could take this opportunity to create a bit of a 'stock pile' of items from the range.


          ** THE PACKAGING **

          All of the products in the range have the same colours on their packaging. These are basically a sort of navy blue 'band' across the top and front of the product, which is displayed on a white background. Under the blue band there is a sort of pink stripe and each product has a little image of a pink foot, which is displayed in a little pink circle. The name of the product can be seen quite clearly on the front of each product.

          All in all I think the packaging is quite 'crisp' and is rather classy looking. The little tube of deep moisturising cream is 75 ml in size.

          There are a few instructions on the reverse of the tube which advise me how to best use the cream, i.e. after bath, shower or foot soak. There is also a little statement which says "Go Deep for soft, moisturised feet." Reading this statement confirmed to me what I thought the cream was all about really --- A good, deep moisturising lotion for my tired feet!


          ** FIRST IMPRESSIONS **

          Upon removing the screw-top lid, I wasn't at all surprised to see that the cream is a crisp white colour, which I feel is in keeping with the product's image. I am quite happy to use a white-coloured cream, as I feel it causes a bit less mess at times, and I personally am a bit of a messy devil!

          Before using the cream on my feet, I wanted to know what to expect, hence why I had taken off the lid and had a good whiff of the cream. I did find that the cream was quite heavily scented, even though the fragrance wasn't particularly unpleasant.

          Squeezing a little of the cream out for inspection, I could see that it looked to be quite shiny and fairly thick, but not overly so. The texture is nowhere near as thick as a body butter or similar product, but neither is it so thin that it is running about all over your hand when you have squeezed a little from the tube.


          ** APPLICATION **

          The first couple of times I tried this product, I would apply it to my feet after I got out of a warm bath. I felt this would be best, given the instructions on the back of the tube. I found that because my feet were warm and the skin was quite soft because of the bathwater, that it made the whole experience a little more enjoyable.

          In saying that, I have used it several times without washing my feet first, or following a bath or shower and have found that the results are pretty much the same, so I personally think that it comes down to personal choice.

          The first thing that I noticed was how SOFT it made my skin feel. I did think that this feeling was evident pretty much as soon as I started applying the cream. Not only that, but I found that the cream was very easy to apply due to it being absorbed well - there was no greasy feeling to my skin at all, and I did think that it was being absorbed quite quickly in comparison to other foot creams I have used recently.

          The smell of the cream is the next thing that struck me. Whilst the scent is really quite strong, I didn't find that it was over-bearing or too much, unlike other foot creams which are so heavily scented with peppermint or something similar that you are literally inhaling menthol whilst you apply the cream... Useful perhaps if you have a cold or a blocked up nose, but not my preference if I'm being honest!

          The Avon cream instead has a much more subtle scent to it. Yes, the scent is definitely peppermint or menthol- based I would say, but it is not so heavily scented that one's eyes are streaming as we massage our feet. The scent on the whole is really quite pleasant, and I think it reminds me a little of chewing gum or something.

          When rubbing the cream in, I tend to start on the top of my foot first - the area near my toes - and rub in small circular motions to apply the cream thoroughly. I then tend to rub the cream down towards my toes and along each toe.

          Finally, I concentrate on the sole of my foot and my heel. These areas are the driest of my whole foot - although I have to confess and say they are in no way cracked, nor do I have a lot of hard skin.

          These areas get tired out quite easily due to shoes and sandals rubbing against them, and although I could never be described as the biggest walker in the world, I do find that rubbing a little of the cream into the soles of my feet brings me a little relief. It is soothing, and when something is soothing I find that it is also relaxing - another plus point for me, then!


          ** MY OPINION **

          Once I have finished applying the cream I do find that the skin on my foot is deliciously soft. The top of my foot is MUCH softer than I remember it being after using my most recent foot cream (from Boots) and actually I think my feet just look a bit better after using this. They have a bit more 'colour' to them or something... perhaps they just appreciate a bit of attention!?

          I do also find that my heels and soles are softer and look better too. For all my heels weren't cracked before I started out using this cream, I do feel from my personal experience that if this was a problem that you suffered from, this would moisturise the area sufficiently and would help to remedy the problem.

          In terms of my feet, my heels are much softer than they were before and look better too! I would recommend the cream quite highly for this reason, and I for one am quite converted - I am now on my second tube of this stuff!

          I do feel that the claims made by Avon about this product are quite justified and it is one product that I will definitely be recommending to my customers - especially when it is on special offer! I can only award the cream top marks as I am thoroughly satisfied with the product.

          One thing that I would mention though, is that once you have used the cream there is a little sort of 'residue' that remains on your skin for a while. I have found that said residue will actually leave a sort of 'chalky' looking mark on your carpets or sofa or whatever if you are not careful!

          This problem was discovered rather unfortunately by my other half. He got up one morning to see several white 'powdery' looking footprints all over our lounge carpet (which is a very dark colour). Needless to say I have now been forced into wearing little slipper sock things once I have finished applying the cream to my feet. Ooopsie! :-o


          ** WHERE TO BUY **

          You can order the cream from your local Avon representative, and the normal price is £3.50 which in itself is I think, reasonable value, considering my most recent alternative foot cream cost around the same price from Boots.

          Please bear in mind what I said at the start of this review about the Foot works range having regular offers though... It may well be the case that you manage to order this cream for a cheaper price!

          If you do not have an Avon representative, you can order the foot cream online at www.avonshop.co.uk, where it is currently on offer at £1.75.

            worth a try if you find this on offer

            I think this cream normally sells for around £3.50 but I was lucky enough to find a brand new, unopened & still sealed 75ml tube in one of our local charity shops for just 99p.

            My feet tend to be the only part of me which I really neglect as I normally just wash & dry them well & throw on a pair of cotton socks or mules & forget about them. Lately though I must admit I've been taking a bit more care of them partly due to the hot weather & partly due to illness.

            The packaging is as shown in the picture & it's a good size as not a lot of the product needs to be used per application. The top is a screw top which is easy enough to open & close which ensures the lotion stays fresh. It has a little seal which obviously needs to be removed the first time you use it so you know it's not been tampered with.

            The lotion itself is a fairly thick white creamy texture which absorbs well into the skin & doesn't need much rubbing in. The smell reminds me of dried mixed fruit - unlike any foot lotion I've smelt before - so can be used by men as well as women without giving that tell-tale sign of having applied the usual floral/ perfume fragrance.

            I noticed that having used it only a couple of times that the skin on my feet felt much softer, it worked well on my cracked heels & they did seem more refreshed although I don't think the deodorising properties are as strong as other foot lotions.

            I like the way it doesn't make the feet & toes feel too greasy & the way it absorbs into the skin so quickly.

            The lotion doesn't clog up the hole as some do & because the tube is made of a good quality yet flexible plastic it means that you can get to the very last bit in the tube.

            All the ingredients & directions for use are listed on the reverse of the tube although you may need a magnifying glass to read them as the print is so very small lol!

            summary
            ~
            - a simple yet fairly effective foot lotion - nothing exciting.
            - non-greasy & absorbs well.
            - smells nice & reasonably priced.
            - would use again but not sure if I'd pay the full price?

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I will be buying this again

              When my mom died last year she had a lot of toiletries in her cupboard and I ended up with most of them, as they were the same sort of things that I usually used.

              One item that I have recently started to use is Avon Footworks Moisture Cream. Being a diabetic I have to make sure that I take extra care of my feet as we can suffer from neuropathy, which is basically a loss of sensation in the feet. I regularly use cream on my feet to keep them soft and whilst I am applying the cream I can check for any problems.

              I have been using ordinary moisturising cream and even hand cream on occasions and have found both of these to be quite adequate for the job. When I finished my tube of moisturising cream a couple of weeks ago I went to the cupboard and noticed that I had the tube of Avon cream that mom had left.

              I decided to try the special foot cream assuming that it would be pretty much the same as any other moisturiser but I was wrong.

              The product

              As I said the one I have is called Avon Footworks Moisture Cream but, after looking at the Avon website at www.avonshop.co.uk , I notice that it is now called Avon Footworks Deep Moisturising Cream. It costs £3.50 for a tube containing 75ml of the cream, but there are often offers on Avon products so it is always worth stocking up on your favourites when the offers are on.

              The packaging

              There isn't much to say about this - it is a white tube with a blue screw cap. It just has the name of the product on the front and a sentence about the product on the back which is written in 6 different languages and is so small that I had to wear my glasses and use a magnifying glass to read it!

              What it does say though is that the cream contains cocoa butter to help soften any hard skin and peppermint oil for its refreshing properties. It also gives an element of deodorising protection.

              The cream

              The first thing that I noticed about the cream was the fragrance and it took me ages to think what it reminded me of! Then it came to me - it smelled just like the mixed spices that I put in the mincemeat that I make at Christmas. I have to say that I would prefer a more perfumed scent but having said that the smell doesn't linger so it doesn't really matter either way.

              The cream itself is much stiffer in texture than hand cream or moisturising cream and it is absorbed into my skin much faster because of this. I used to spend ages rubbing in moisturising cream but this one disappears into my skin really quickly with no trace of greasiness.

              I found that I didn't need to use very much of the cream to get the beneficial effects so the tube lasts a long time - another advantage especially in these cash strapped times!

              The effects

              I use this cream every night before I go to bed and occasionally in the morning as well and my feet feel soft, smooth and comfortable and, since I do a lot of walking, this is great. I don't suffer with much hard skin but I do have small cracks in the skin on my heels and I have noticed a marked improvement since using this cream. My heels are now quite smooth!

              I haven't noticed whether the deodorising effect makes any difference as, luckily, I don't suffer from smelly feet anyway so I can't comment on this particular property of the cream.

              In conclusion

              I didn't expect this cream to be any different from any other moisturising cream; I though the 'special' foot cream idea was just a gimmick. I admit it - I was wrong. This cream is markedly better for my feet than ordinary moisturiser and I think I shall be treating myself to some more when this is finished.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                a great cream for preventing dry skin

                With our feet being the furthest thing from our heads it is all too often a forgotten about part of the body in our daily beauty routine which can quite often lead to us having dry skin areas on our feet or even worse the skin actually cracking.

                I tend to find the worst parts of my feet are the ball and heel as these become very dry from constantly being in contact with the floor when we walk.

                There are lots of foot creams on the market ranging from cheap to very expensive and i have tryed quite a few in my time including this one from the avon, my reason for choosing this was purely price it usually retails at around £3.50 for a 75ml tube of this cream but at the moment is on a mix and match deal of any 4 items for £4.99 and you know by now i cant resist a bargain.

                This foot cream comes in a squeezy tub that stands up on its lid so is always easy enough to get out of the tub despite it being a realy thick consistency.

                It has a very greasy feel to the cream and does leave a greasy film on the surface of your skin But this is what is needed to get the results of beautiful soft skin. It is by no means a miracle cure, your skin does not look dry any more after you apply the cream but you do need to apply it daily other wise the skin drys out again, i have been using this for a week now and it has worked brilliantly, i have found the best time to apply it is of an evening before going to bed to give it all night to soak in.

                There is a nice smell to the cream but nothing too over powering and a tube lasts a few weeks so is good value for money.

                If you want nice soft feet at a reasonable price then i would recomend this cream to anyone.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A good product which is often on offer!

                Why do I do this every year, will I ever learn! About this time of year when we get our first days of sunshine out come my flip flops. On slipping them on my feet I look down and realise that leaving my feet unattended in fluffy socks and trainers and boots all winter and spring does not make for pretty feet.

                So every year I have to spend far too long attending to my feet to make them suitable for the eyes of the poor public.

                As a person who works full time, has children, goes to the gym etc etc I am always on my feet and I find that over the colder months they become ever so dry and I get a small amount of hard skin on my heels.

                Flicking through a recent Avon book I came across this product. The product retails at £3.50 but checking their website it is currently on offer and only £1.75.

                Avon claim that it penetrates deep into the skin and helps to moisturise from the inside out.

                The product itself comes in a 75ml tube. It is white tube with blue and pink detail and comes with a clear screw cap. To use the cream you simply squeeze some of the cream into your hand and rub onto the areas required. The tube states to place on areas of dry skin on your feet and legs but I have been using the cream all over my feet.

                The cream itself is very thick and feels quite greasy but I found that it soon soaks into the skin with only a small amount of rubbing. It has a very slight medicated smell to it which I can sometimes smell on my hands so I find I have to wash my hands after using the cream.

                I have been using the cream daily now for just over a week. I use it in the morning after my shower and also before I go to bed. My feet already look much better and I no longer have dry skin.

                I think the key with this product as with many is continous use so I am trying to use this cream daily so I don't find myself in the same position in a few months time.

                This cream works and is a good price so I would definately recommend this to others.

                  excellent product, makes feet smooth and soft, great value for money

                  This product comes in a 75ml tube. It usually costs £3.75, but as it is part of a range of products in the Avon range called FOOT WORKS, it is often on special offer. The tube is white with the distictive logo of Foot Works which has a blue background, on the front. The instructions are on the back of the product. They are short and to the point. Basically you rub it into the soles of your feet after a bath or shower. It is very easy to use. There is a slight but pleasant fragrance. The product itself is white in colour. It rubs very easily into the feet and instantly makes them feel soft and cared for. You can see a change in the condition of your feet with only one or two applications. Use regularly for best results, although it doesn't matter if you miss a few applications, but in my opinion you won't want to. I think it is extremely well priced and excellent value for money and a product I would recommend.

                  A wonderful foot cream which won't break the bank.

                  I have a stack of Avon products to review and have decided to start with this one as it's probably one of the very few bargains in the ever pricier Avon book.

                  This Deep Moisturising Cream is part of Avon's Foot Works range, a selection of products designed to keep your feet looking and feeling good. In the book Avon claims that this product will "help prevent the build up of rough, hard skin", years spent in sandals while living in hot climes has taken it's toll on the condition of my feet and now I've been back in the UK for a few years I've found the skin particularly on my heels and soles is cracked and very rough. I've tried lots of products from Scholl to a ridiculously priced heel cream bought in Selfridges, these products may or may not have worked but to be honest I found them all to be so overpriced that I ended up giving up as soon as the first tube or pot was finished.

                  At £3.50 for a 75ml tube this is certainly more in tune with my purse strings and my sister, who is also my Avon lady, told me that a lot of her older customers buy this and she's heard nothing but good about the product.

                  The cream is very thick and greasy feeling but slathers on well, it takes quite a lot of rubbing in but then the skin on your feet is not terribly absorbent and at least it gave my arms some exercise. I found a lot of the cream just 'sat' on my skin and refused to rub in so I popped a pair of cotton socks on and say watching the tele until it dried a bit better. I didn't like the feel of it making between my toes so slippery when I walked so I'd recommend putting your foot cream on immediately before getting into bed, which is what I do now and I don't have to worry about walking around.

                  I wouldn't say there was a noticeable difference in the condition of the skin on my feet immediately. Personally they felt very moisturised and the cracked had lessened very slightly, but I still wouldn't feel comfortable wearing strappy shoes or anything that exposed my heels. However, within four weeks the improvement was astounding. My skin had lost its roughness, was considerably softer and more moisturised plus the cracks in my heels had almost completely disappeared. I am diabetic and have to visit the chiropodist once every few weeks, I went late last week for my regular appointment and even the doctor commented on how much healthier my feet appeared and indeed felt to his professional touch. He honestly could not believe it when I told him it was all thanks to an Avon product as he said a lot of his colleagues dismiss the Foot Works range as gimmicky.

                  I still use it nightly in conjunction with other Avon products and now will use no other foot cream, some people might look down on such a cheap product but for £3.50 and a cheap pair of socks I now have better cared for feet than I had when I was younger. There's no messing around either as you simply rub the cream in and that's it, unlike a cream I used recently which came with an instruction leaflet 2000 words long and needed applying in cycles! Life's too short for that so for me it's the Deep Moisturing Cream from Avon every time.

                    This lotion is great.

                    My feet have always been one of my problems areas. They have always been rough and very dry, especially my heels. I have to keep them well moisturized or they will crack and peel, which is not only painful, but annoying.
                    Using Avon's Deep Moisturizing cream has helped me a lot. By using it daily, my feet are kept soft and supple and do not crack or hurt. I find that if I miss a day I can really tell.
                    The lotion is thick and goes on very easily. It is absorbed into my feet very fast and makes my feet feel wonderful. And it has a pleasant smell as well, which makes it that much better.
                    The tube costs me around $3, and I consider it to be a great buy. It has made my feet feel and look like a million bucks and for that I would not trade it for anything.

                    Disadvantages

                    this softens and fragrances

                    There is a few different Foot Creams to choose from in the Avon Foot Works range, but I find this one works the best.

                    The Deep Moisture Cream usually costs £3.50 for a 75ml tube. This may sound expensive, but just wait until the product is on special offer. In the current Avon book this is part of a Buy one get one free campaign.

                    The tube is just a standard tube. It is a white squeezy tube with a blue band near the top with Foot Works on it. It has a kind of see through plastic white lid. Can't really explain more about it, as it's just average.

                    The cream is quite thick and white. It's easy to rub in and a little goes a long way. After using this I use the Avon moisturising socks, as your feet can be a bit greasy afterwards and the first time I used this I put fluffy socks on and the fluff stuck to the cream on my feet!

                    I tend to use this once a week, as I use another lighter cream on my feet on other days. I find this works good if you have rough skin on your feet and after using it a few times it makes the roughness less noticable.

                    So, what about the smell? This smells a bit minty. If it was more minth, I think it would be a bit sicky, so it's just right. A good product that does what it say - moisturises and lightly scents

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A highly recommended everyday foot cream.

                      One of the more popular Avon Footworks products that I sell to my customers is the Deep Moisturising Cream. It comes in a white 75ml tube with white and has blue writing on the front. It has a white crew cap on the bottom which is easy to use and the cream is easily dispensed because the cap is located at the bottom of the squeezy tube.

                      This cream works best if you use it once or twice a day and you should notice a different in even the roughest skin after just a week of continued use. This product does what it claims to do and moisturises deep into even very dry skin. It will leave your feet feeling soft and smooth in no time at all. A 75ml tube usually lasts me for two months using it twice a week and is priced at £3.50. The Footworks range is frequently on special offer though so you will rarely need to pay full price for this product. In brochure 14 you can purchase this for £1.75 which I feel is exceptional value for money.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        A moisturising foot cream from Avon.

                        Last summer I managed to burn the soles of my feet horrifically due to falling asleep while sunbathing. The rest of my body was protected by a big umbrella but due to shuffling around in my sleep my feet were left exposed. Ever since then the skin on my feet and especially my heels has remained horribly hard and almost impossible to moisturise effectively. Avon recently had a buy 1 get 1 free offer on their Footworks Deep Moisturising Cream so I decided to give it a go.

                        The Brand

                        Most of you will have heard of Avon but for those of you that haven't it was set up back in 1886 when an American businessman decided to sell perfumes door to door. The company then grew and the Avon name was coined in 1939 before it arrived over in the UK in 1959.

                        Sadly Avon isn't available to buy in shops which they argue keeps their prices lower. Instead you can order it through their catalogue which is hand delivered to the majority of areas in the UK or alternatively off their online shopping site www.avonshop.co.uk.

                        The Product

                        The cream comes in a simple yet effective white plastic tube with a blue circular screw on lid which also enables you to stand the tube upright on any flat surface. The lid isn't the most practical as once you've applied the cream your hands will invariably be a little greasy which makes it difficult to screw the lid on again. Apart from that the packaging is very effective and serves its purpose well.

                        The cream itself is white is colour and thicker than your average moisturising cream. It squeezes out of the tube quite easily but then retains its shape on my hand rather than spreading out like a normal moisturiser. It's similar to toothpaste in colour and consistency. There's a very faint smell to the product, it reminds me of numerous other foot creams that I've used and has that slightly perfumed yet slight hospital smell about it. It's not an unpleasant smell but it's so weak you can barely smell it I find.

                        The cream is extremely easy to apply; I simply dispense a little into the palm of my hand and then rub it into my feet. I need about two to three pea sized amounts of cream to sufficiently cover each foot. It rubs in remarkably easy and soaks in within about a minute - I find the best thing to do is to apply it and then after about a minute put some soaks on to allow it to continue doing its job.

                        The cream is advertised as "penetrating deep into the layers of skin, this helps moisturise from the inside out." I'm not sure how accurate this is but it certainly does seem to moisturise. I used this continuously for a fortnight and found it did make quite a difference on my feet overall but it didn't overly affect the hard skin on my heels. What I found worked best was using this cream at night before bed and then using an exfoliater or a pumice stone the next morning to remove the softened skin.

                        My Opinion

                        The Footworks Deep Moisturising Cream is priced at £3.50 for 75ml, although they currently have a buy 1 get 1 free offer on it again. I find if I use this cream on a nightly basis a tube lasts me just under two months which isn't bad, especially if you're getting two tubes for £3.50.

                        It's not a quick fix solution like some creams out there and it won't give you beautiful feet in a matter of days. It is a product that you do have to persevere with and one that you have to continue using to keep your feet in a good condition.

                        I'll be investing in this cream again if it's ever on offer in the future although once I get my feet into a suitable condition I think I'll probably try to use just a normal moisturiser and hope for the best!

                        Thanks for reading.
