AVON FOOTWORKS TRIPLE DUTY CREAM
I did promise you all, there will be lots of Footworks reviews to come. And here is the third; about a cream from the range that is called Triple Duty Cream.
Footworks is a range I really love so I thought I would share my secrets about how I get my feet to stay so beautifully soft and smooth all the time. They even smell nice - and it's all thanks to Footworks.
This cream is marked in the brochure as normally £3.75. There is 75ml in the tube. This means the normal price per 100ml is £5. At the moment Avon has a deal on which is '2 for £4'. This means you could save up to £6 of the normal prices, so if you are thinking of getting this then now is the time to do so.
WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO DO?
Avon claims in the brochure that this cream:
"Conditions extra dry feet with intensive moisturisation"
DOES IT LIVE UP TO ITS CLAIMS?
Yes, it does. It works really well to get rid of dry skin and makes my feet feel so much softer. The cream comes out as quite a thick, white substance which you are supposed to rub into your feet. This one is absorbed quite quickly and gets to work right away.
I personally use this cream by squirting some into my sock and then putting my foot in. Some people might think this sounds horrible, some might think it sounds nice. I think it does feel quite nice as you feel the cream on your foot. Make sure you wear quite thick socks though as when I've worn thin socks to do this in the past the cream has seeped out and made a bit of a mess. The time I do this is right before bed so that the next morning when I take my socks off my feet feel incredibly smooth and soft.
For all the reasons in this review I really would recommend the Triply Duty Cream for your feet. If you have dry feet then this really will help you get them back to feeling soft and smooth once again.
I would only recommend using this on your feet as it isn't a body lotion or face cream (eek!) and might be harsh to skin anywhere else on your body.
The smell is quite a fresh, light fragrance that isn't too strong and I quite like it. There isn't an immediate flavour to it that you can pick out; it just smells like cream really, if you get what I mean.
You only need to use this about three times a week to keep your feet feeling gorgeous so I definitely recommend it and the tube lasts a really long time.
It's a great cream at a great price and it works really well.
I tend to wear Trainers most of the time. Yes I can wear shoes to work, but Trainers and nice cosy socks especially at this time of year is a far better idea. As for that reason I tend to use Foot Cream most nights, as I feel being stuck in Trainers all day doesn't give my feet that great chance to get fresh.
This is on offer in the new Avon book priced at a bargain 99p. I think it is normally £3.50, but every other book there is an offer on. The tube is 75ml.
This is sold in Avon and is part of the Footworks brand, which has a few different products in it, but as the name suggests it is all Foot related Cream.
The tube is a simple white squeezy tube. It stands on its lid which is a screw lid and easy enough to get off. The only colouring on this is a band of blue with the Foot Works in white against it, and a splash of pink for some reason.
Again as the name suggests this attends to 3 areas in the 1 tube. It works as a moisturiser, Helps control odour, and noirushes your nails as well. I had never thought about my toe nails and even now I don't tend to rub this cream right into them.
The Cream is quite thick, but it rubs in easily enough. A little goes quite a long way and it seems to absorb quickly enough. The smell of this is a creamy Minty scent. Not unlike a watered down toothpaste smell, but nicer than what i'm trying to describe!
So does this work? I guess so. It's no wonder product, but as I said it's more about moisturising my feet and giving them a break from my Trainers. The skin on my feet seems soft enough after this, my feet aren't that smelly to begin with so i'm unsure if this tackles smells that good, and since I hadn't paid attention to my nails then I again don't know if they are any prettier looking but they just look the same.
Worth a go and especially at the current price as it is a good Foot product.
Of late my feet have not been in the best of condition. Overall I have hard skin particularly on my heels, ball of my feet and dry flaky bits of skin on top of layers of tough old skin on the edges of my toes. Having a few warmer days of late though I've wanted to wear sandals and wear toe polish and stuff and generally have pretty feet and not have to hide my feet away in trainers and the likes! I was ashamed though!
My feet though have paid the price I feel because of my recent obsession with the gym. Bunged into trainers and socks for a good 3 hours pumpiling treadmills and doing dance means that they're cooped up and working hard and on reflection I haven't repaid them for all the hard work they do for me which is why when I saw this product priced at £1.85 (on offer) in the Avon catalogue I bought it for my feet along with a couple of other treats!
75ml plastic white tube with a screw on/off lid to the bottom of it concealing a small hole. On the front of it I'm told it is Avon 'Footworks' Triple Duty Cream (and told that in French too) and the size is stated (as I've listed already). On the back I'm told a bit bout the product 'Moisturises, nourish the nail, controls odour' and directions for use are given 'Apply to clean, dry feet and toenails' and then I'm told that in a variety of different languages, ingredients are listed, the recycle symbol is displayed and finally contact details for Avon are given. In it's appearance this is a very functional looking tube rather than cosmetic and suitable for men and women alike to use.
White in colour and in consistency it's a soft but rather thin cream though don't get me wrong it isn't so thin it drips anywhere or anything like that. It has a gentle but clean smelling aroma of mentholy mint that isn't too overpowering and all you do really is as directed, apply some to clean dry feet.
I find with this that as soon as you touch your feet with it and give it a gentle rub it just sinks into the feet in seconds without going cloggy or crumbly. It does give you a moment to spread it a little but this is just so quick absorbing and leaves no greasy residue behind at all. It's really simple to use and feet feel lightly re-hydrated and fresh after using it and as for keeping odour at bay.......I agree to that....it does! I use this before going to the gym and have found my feet to generally be a little sweeter smelling afterwards!
Easy to use and it does feel nice on the feet in a none greasy, fresh way however for me I have found this to be good when on the feet but even by using it daily I haven't found any long term effects at all. As I say when on the feet it makes then feel soft enough, smooth and fresh but sadly it's so mild and gentle that hard skin is still there just as bad as before I started to use it though I do think that my flaky skin is a bit better.
Nice for short term effects and if you want to keep your feet fresher for longer but not if you think this is going to sort out heavily distressed tootsies and lumps of meat!
Only available from Avon priced at £3.75 a tube unless it's on offer and more often than not it it (my tube cost me £1.85 when I invested into it!).
