Avon Footworks Heel Softening Cream
Advantages: Softens and revitalises dry feet
Disadvantages: Slightly expensive when not on offer
Footworks is the name given to the range of foot care products offered by direct sell company Avon.
Avon is of course well known in the United Kingdom and the company has been popular for many years. Older readers will no doubt recall the 1960's advertising campaign which involved the ringing doorbell and the cheery 'Avon Calling' sales rep.
Presented in a white screw topped tube decorated with images of feet, this product contains 75ml of cream specifically to be used for caring for your feet. It is designed to relieve extremely dry, cracked skin on the feet. Avon advises that this cream will provide 24-hour moisturisation and it will help to heal and guard against skin infection in tender, cracked skin.
The cream should be massaged into the skin on your feet, paying particular attention to heels where skin can dry and crack very easily. The cream is thick in texture and it absorbs into your skin quickly and well. The cream has a pleasant scent; I find it sort of soap-like and fresh. It is a scent that could be appreciated by both men and women, as it definitely not a pronounced female fragrance. The cream not only softens skin but makes it feel refreshed and supple.
I do find that this cream softens my dry, hard skin extremely effectively and although I wouldn't say that the effects last for 24 hours as claimed by Avon, it certainly does last an acceptable length of time.
**Availability and Price**
Avon goods can be ordered through their brochures from an Avon representative or by ordering directly online. The advantage of ordering from a rep is that your goods are paid for on receipt and that there are no delivery fees to pay.
If ordering on line, there is a delivery charge to pay, currently £3.50 for standard delivery. A bonus in the form of a cash back discount on your purchase price is worth considering. Many of the UK based cash back sites offer an advantageous amount of cash back, for example Topcashback are currently paying a whopping 10% on all purchases.
Avon are very good about refunding your money if you are dissatisfied with your purchase.
Foot Works Heel Softening Cream is usually sold for around £3.50. At the point of writing this review (August 2012) Avon have reduced this foot cream to £2.50 and also have a special offer running whereby you can receive a free pair of Flip Flops when you buy any 2 Footworks products from a selection of the range. This cream is part of the special offer.
**My Thoughts and Conclusion**
This is very good product, it does exactly what I expect of it. I have to say that I tend to stock up on Avon's Heel Softening Cream when I see a special deal in the brochure and usually have a couple of tubes in reserve.
Both my partner and I use this cream and we find it to be a very soothing cream for tired feet. I appreciate this is not the prime use of the product, but in my experience it really does revitalise your feet. I do use other products on my dry heels, such as body butters, body lotions and so on and whilst they help with dry skin, this cream is the best in my opinion.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this heel softening cream to others and am awarding it a 5* rating.
Thank you for reading
