“ Brand: Boots / Texture: Cream / Type: Moisturiser / Suitable for: Foot / What it does: Smoothes, Moisturizes / Product line: Boots Gorgeous „
Summer is coming (I hope) and during the hot months (or even weeks/days), I like to wear flip flops or open toed shoes such as wedges and other sandals. I personally don't think feet are very pretty in general, how-ever I do make the effort to keep my feet looking as nice as possible as there's nothing worse than seeing someone in sandals with really bad feet. (Not that I tend to look at feet a lot!). I normally look after my feet even during the winter months by applying products that help to smooth and soften hard skin on your feet.
~ THE PRODUCT ~
I was in my local Boots store when I happened to come across their foot care range so I thought I would take a look at it to see what products they had available. They had quite a large range of products, some by well-known brands such as Scholl. I browsed Boots own brand collection and a pot of something stood out. The product was called Deeply Intensive Moisturiser and it was especially for feet. The product claims to soften and smooth feet and to hydrate feet for 24hrs. The product was £4.99 for a 150ml pot so I thought I would give it a try. The moisturiser comes in a small glass pot which has a pink metallic looking lid. There is a label on the front of the product which tells you a little about the product itself. The lid simply unscrews to reveal the thick intensive moisturiser which smells lovely. I was actually surprised at how nice the moisturiser smelt. The smell reminds me of a slight vanilla smell. The moisturiser itself was white in colour and very glossy but it looked really smooth.
~ USING THE PRODUCT ~
It recommends using the product daily for a few weeks and then to use the product weekly as skin begins to get softer. I always use a Ped-Egg on my feet to help get rid of dry, hard skin. After showering or having a bath I apply the intensive moisturiser. I unscrewed the lid from the glass tub and scooped out a small amount using my fingers. I then started to rub this into my foot gently and ensuring I rubbed it into the whole of my foot. The cream was really smooth and felt gentle as I rubbed it on my feet. I only needed to use a small amount of cream as a little goes a long way. After applying the cream to both feet I then jumped into bed. I could smell the product and smelt really pleasant. Although the moisturiser is creamy and rich it didn't feel greasy when rubbing it onto my feet and after I had finished rubbing it in.
~ RESULTS ~
I woke up the following morning and had a look and quick feel of my feet so see how good a job the moisturiser had done. My feet definitely felt a lot softer than they were before and they also looked softer and a little brighter which must be from the moisturiser. I still had some slightly harder skin on the heels which would take a little longer to get rid of and to soften. I have continued to use the intensive moisturiser for 1 week and the results have been fantastic. My feet not only feel great but they look great too. The hard skin I had is now soft and my feet are smoother than they were before. As I have already seen an improvement, I have cut down on using the product and am now using it about 2-3 times a week just to ensure my feet stay smooth and soft. I have also since, purchased moisturising socks and these are great for putting on when going to bed as this really helps the moisturiser to soak into your feet.
~ OVERALL OPINION ~
Although this product is Boots own brand it really is a brilliant product and works really well. Not only does the product work well but it also smells really good which I find unusual for a foot cream. I have even recommended this product to my sister and she has since gone out and purchased it and also agrees that it's a fantastic product and she's noticed an improvement in the feel and look of her feet too. For £4.99 I don't think it's badly priced as other branded foot products are around the same price or only slightly cheaper. I will be buying this product again when I've run out and I highly recommend it to others to use. This gets 5 out of 5 stars!

My feet constantly get dry so I always look out for a good foot cream. I also like experimenting with cosmetics so recently I decided to buy Boots Gorgeous Feet Deeply Intensive Moisturiser.
It comes in a transparent, thick glass jar with a pink lid. You can easily see how much cream you have in the container and any information needed will be found on the pink sticker on the front. What really surprised me is that when you open the jar, there is not any protective aluminium foil on the top! I must admit it had one advantage to it, I could simply smell it in the shop.
I was used to most of my foot creams smelling of mint but this one is completely different. The scent is extremely sweet and quite intense, I think it smells of candies. I am not a great fan of this scent and I am quite glad it seems to disappear fairly quickly as I don't think I would be able to stand it in a longer run.
The cream itself has an extremely smooth and creamy texture - it is like light cream. It is very pleasant to apply but I cannot really comment on whether it gets absorbed by skin really quickly or not - I usually put socks on and go straight to bed after applying it. It does not seem to be overly sticky or heavy.
The producer says that this is 'deeply intensive moisturiser for soft, smooth, rich hydration that lasts 24 hrs''. I am not entirely sure whether the hydration lasts for 24 hours, but just after one use my feet became much softer and smoother. It definitely moisturises very well.
Overall, I was pleased with this cream and I think it is definitely value for money. One pot of 150 ml costs £4.99 and lasts for quite a long period of time. I believe you can also buy smaller pots but I have no idea how much they cost.
Thank you for reading my review.

A shopaholic's lifesaver
Today I will review the "Goregous Feet deeply intensive moisturizer" by Boots.
I bought this goodie last summer when I was in London! I was on a trip of four days absolute power shopping with a friend, so you can guess what our feet felt like after the second day! They were burning and hurting so bad that on the third day we already had trouble walking although we still had a day left over! So what to do? We went to the huge Boots at Picadilly Circus and checked their shelf with footcare. Luckily, they were well stocked - I guess we weren't the first ones to come looking for something to revive their aching feet!
I ended up buying the "Reviving Foot Spray" by Boots' own brand and the "Deeply intensive moisturizer" out of Boots' own Gorgeous Feet line.
The moisture cream comes in a jar the size of a very big facial cream jar. It's almost 5cm high and measures about 6cm in diameter.
The jar itself is clear so you can see the white cream inside. A pink sticker label goes around the jar. It shows a high-heeled shoe and the "Gorgeous Feet" name is written in fancy script. The label claims the Cream will provide you soft, smooth and rich hydration that lasts. The manufacturer's address is given as well.
You can peel the label off at one side so it will fold open without being torn off completely. There you get much more information on the product - how to use, how it will work and what the ingredients are!
How to use and how it'll help
You're supposed to start using it daily first, rubbing it on your feet until no spot feels dry anymore. Then you can gradually reduce it to using it once a week!
The cream is supposed to pamper hard-working feet and give them a lasting transformation! After use, you skin should feel super-soft and moisturized for 24 hours!
It defenitely provides moisture! When we went back to our hotel room in the evening, I was eager to try the cream out. I was very much hoping for something that would make them hurt less because I was at a point where every step I took made me clench my fists because my feet felt like they were burning up!
So after a refreshing shower, I sat down on the bed and opened the jar. I immediately noticed the wonderful scent! The smell biscuits and finally, but there is something fruity to it as well! It's very hard to describe - i've never smelt anything like it. It's very sweet, but in a subtle way.
The cream is easy to spread and rub into your feet as it is thick, but not too gooey. My feet instantly felt better! I was able to relax and the pain really became less prominent.
What I wasn't too happy with was how long it took the cream to be asborbed. I reckon it's a common problem with foot creams - they always leave your feet feeling a bit weird. The cream was not too quickly absorbed and my feet welt a bit weird afterwards.
Altogether, I am still very satisfied with how the cream worked. My feet hurts less and weren't dry anymore. They really looked a lot better.
The next day I bought another of these creams to take home with me and whenever my feet hurt or feel dry, I slap it on! :)
I had no allergic reactions or any other problems of that nature. If you have allergies, please check the ingredients before buying!

The cream is £4.99 for 150ml.
My cream is a small one of 50ml, I believe it was about £2.00 or 2.50. There was also an offer if I remember it correctly. On the Boots website there is an offer where you get your second Boots footcare product half price if you buy two.
I would defenitely recommend this to anyone who is going on a trip where you have to walk a lot. Give you feet and treat - they deserve it for carrying you around all the time! ;)
Searching the shelves in Boots for a cream to moisturise my feet and, in particular, my heels I came across the Boots Gorgeous Feet Deeply Intensive Moisturiser. It comes in a glass jar in 2 sizes, 150ml for £4.99 and 50ml for £1.99 and looks pretty with a pink lid and pink label. There is a picture of a sandal on the label indicating that once this cream is used your feet will be beautiful enough to bare to the world! I, therefore, had great expectations of this foot cream and couldn't wait to try it when I got home.
The label is one of those where you peel back the top layer to reveal the directions and ingredients. The instructions suggest using the cream every day to start with until the skin has softened and then once a week or as required.
The perfume of this cream is gorgeous. I can't identify a particular scent, perhaps a hint of coconut, but overall it is divine and makes my feet smell lovely - always a good thing!
The cream itself is rich and quite thick and a smallish blob can be spread over the whole foot, rubbing it well into the soles and around the toe nails and balls of the feet where skin can become quite dry. It feels luxurious and for a short time my skin feels very soft after using it.
I am a bit disappointed in this product though as although it smells gorgeous and makes my skin really soft for a while, my skin doesn't stay moisturised for the 24 hours that it boasts on the jar and I haven't found any long term improvement in the skin of my feet which still feels and looks dry after the cream has worn off.
A luxurious cream with a lovely smell, making feet feel pampered although it hasn't had a long term effect on my dry skin. Sorry Boots, only 3 stars for this one.
I have quite dry skin on my feet and last summer I got really fed up of wearing flip flops and having my feet on show all the time while I had some really dry skin and hard feet in places.
So after a recommendation I tried this deeply intensive moisturiser from Boots' Gorgeous Feet range. I thought it was pretty expensive at around £5 for the big pot but after someone else saying it was good I decided to give it a try anyway.
The best thing about this is the smell - it has a strong sweet smell that really reminds me of cream soda and every time I open it I have to take a big sniff first. It smells so much of cream soda that I find it quite hard not to lick some out of the pot and I can't help but fancy a glass of cream soda after I've used it!
The moisturiser won't work wonders after just one application but after only a few days of using it I can feel my feet starting to feel softer and smoother. This is the sort of cream that you have to continue using in order for your feet to stay feeling soft. It doesn't need to be used every single day but a couple of times a week or every day for a couple of weeks before a holiday will do the job. It works even better if you file your feet beforehand - I use a ped egg on my feet to get rid of the dry skin and then put this moisturizer on afterwards and the two used together works wonders on my feet after only one application.
Although this is a little expensive, I think it's worth it as it does what it's meant to do and makes your feet feel soft and smooth - plus the smell is just delicious!
