Avon Planet Spa Moisturising Socks
Advantages: My feet feel soft in the morning, cheap.
Disadvantages: Need to be washed after every single use, isn't one size fits all.
Avon's Planet Spa moisturising socks are meant to give you super soft feet when used with a deep moisturising cream. I purchased a pair of these socks from the Avon a couple of years ago and with them I received their Planet Spa's foot and elbow cream for free, as it was in a promotion. I don't think Avon sell these moisturising socks anymore, or even the foot & elbow cream, as I can't find it on the Avon shop online, I am not sure about them being in the brochure or not. They are however still available to buy from Amazon and eBay, which is why I am writing this review. They are priced at around £3 for one pair.
I was very keen to try these out and it was my sister that recommended I buy them and try them, as I am always on my feet at work and every time I get in from a long shift one of the first things I do is moisturise my sore feet!
You are meant to apply a deep moisturising cream on your feet then apply these socks and leave them. When I usually apply moisturiser I usually massage it into my feet until it has completely rubbed in and almost absorbed into the skin, giving myself a mini foot massage! However if you intend to apply moisturising socks after then you don't necessarily need to rub the moisturiser in completely, and can even apply more than you usually do. I like to apply these socks just before I go to bed, then I wear them all night and when I take them off in the morning, the cream has all absorbed and my feel feel very soft, much softer than they would be if I had just quickly applied the moisturiser and not worn the socks.
I cannot do this everyday though as I only have one pair of moisturising socks and they need washing after every use. If you wanted these to wear every night then I would recommend that you buy a few pairs.
Of course it is not the socks that make my feet feel so soft, but the actual cream I use. However this is not a review on the foot & elbow cream. I did use the cream I got with the socks but after it ran out I started to use my normal moisturiser and I got the same effect when I woke up in the morning, if not better. I like to use fruity smelling moisturisers and that from Planet Spa was not, it didn't leave my feet smelling nice like my Body Shop butters do. So by using these socks your feet can still smell of the moisturiser you use the next day too. Whereas if you applied it without putting the socks on after, the lovely smell of your moisturiser would usually be gone by the morning.
I am not sure what size these socks are, but they were one size fits all when I bought them. I am a size 5 and they fit perfectly on my feet. I think if you have bigger feet than a size 5 though then they could be too small, as they aren't very stretchy. I have seen other moisturising socks around though and not just these by Avon, so if you are interested then just shop around and I am sure there will be alternatives somewhere.
Summary: Leave my feet feeling super soft after wearing them overnight.
