Avon Footworks Deep Moisturising Cream
Advantages: Makes feet softer & Easy to use.
Disadvantages: Results aren't as good / fast as I would have liked.
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 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.
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.
