Anyone who reads my reviews regularly will know that I have what I politely call “problem feet” – in other words, they stink, especially in the hot weather. I don’t have to stand up at work, in fact most of the day I am on my bottom but in the hot weather my feet really do suffer. They swell up, they smell and they feel really sore, hot an uncomfortable and by the end of the day all I want to do is stand in a bucket of ice water. I have found a good solution though in Boots as I now use their Reviving Foot Spray. This costs me only £3.49 for a 150ml little plastic spray container and I take my bottle with me to work and use it several times over the day. It doesn’t work miracles and my feet still stick and swell up but this definitely helps to make me feel just that little bit more comfortable in hot weather when I am wearing tight shoes.
I like to store mine in the fridge as I personally find that this works better the colder it is. It contains cypress and witch hazel and it is medicated and deodorizes the feet. The effects don’t last all day, however, and I personally use mine several times a day but to be honest, the best part of this product is the feeling of coolness that you get immediately after spaying it onto your feet. It is lovely.

It is only available from Boots and a bottle lasts for ages even if you use it several times a day, as I do It is reviving and so gorgeously refreshing and if you have problem feet like I do then I definitely recommend that you give this a try.
Boots Reviving Foot Spray
Description: Brand: Boots / Type: Foot Deodoriser / Spray
A 150ml foot spray currently costs £2.99 from Boots stores. It comes in a clear plastic pump action spray with a mint green label. The label has the Boots logo on the front and a picture of a mint leaf.
This spray is antiseptic and medicated and contains mint, witch hazel & cypress. It is designed not only to deodorise but also to cool hot and aching feet.
To use, all you have to do is to hold the pump spray 6 inches from your feet and then spray.
Boots tell us that this product is flammable so be very careful not to use it near fire or flame.
I don't get smelly feet but I do find that they get very hot, tired and sore, especially in hot weather, or when I have been walking a lot. This product gives a lovely cooling effect which happens immediately after applying. It cools feet down and has a slight tingle which is really refreshing and reviving.
The product has a lovely fresh scent, which is quite subtle and not overpowering or sickly. One bottle lasts for ages because you only need a couple of sprays each time.
There is something deliciously indulgent feeling about being able to refresh hot and tired feet so quickly. I like to keep a bottle of this in the car so that as soon as I get in, I can use it and feel the effects. It genuinely makes a difference and the cooling effect is fantastic.
If you walk a lot, or just have smelly or aching feet then I really recommend that you give this product a try. I have previously used gels which are a bit fussy as they need to be rubbed in. Because all you need to do is spray this product on, it is much more convenient and easy to use. It offers immediate relief and decent value for money, especially as it lasts for ages.
5 stars from me - and I would give it more if Dooyoo would allow it!
There never seem to be enough hours in the day do there? I'm the sort of person who like to take good care of myself but sadly my feet are neglected & I tend to just forget about them.
I wear clogs or boots all year round & it isn't until I'm in the bath that I realise I should take better care of these essential parts of my anatomy.
They look OK but my feet are always hot & I know this isn't good because you can become prone not only to Athlete's Foot & other fungal infections, but also smelly feet.
Yes, I have to admit that once my clogs/ boots are removed my feet do smell cheesy (sorry if you are eating while reading this) so over the years I've tried all sorts of different foot deodorants & this Boots one is my favourite.
After carefully washing & drying my feet & toes I have a few squirts of this foot spray & it not only feels & smells good but also does what it says on the bottle.
The pull off lid needs to be replaced firmly otherwise it could leak/ spill but otherwise I've nothing negative to say about it.
The smell is lovely as it contains mint, witchhazel & cypress & it smells a little medicated but isn't overpowering - just fresh.
It seems to cool the feet straightaway without any dryness & I would say this is a great product to use all year round, to take on holiday or after exercise.
The bottle I have is 150ml & cost around £2.90 from Boots but it's quite often on offer.
The spray action is good so you can use a little at a time & it's a good size for a gym bag or similar.
After using the spray (which dries in a minute or so) my feet feel refreshed, calm, ultra-clean & deodorised (to the relief of friends & family!)
I would avoid using it on cracked or broken skin - I accidentally sprayed some on a cracked heel & it really stung.
- does what it says - deodorises & freshens feet.
- good price as it lasts ages.
- easy to use.
- non-greasy & dries quickly.
- pleasant smell.
- recommended for those with smelly feet like mine!
When we go on holiday we seem to spend an awful lot of time walking about. Whether it is abroad, or in the UK, my feet still can get a bit hot, tired and generally rather icky! In fact my feet tend to get worse in this country because I am usually wearing trainers ~ when in sunnier climes my feet have more chance to breathe in sandals or mules. I always take a foot spray with me in my handbag and have a quick squirt when the moment arises! I have tried various sprays ~ the Avon Footworks Revitalizing Spray, the Body Shop Peppermint Foot Spray and, most recently, the Boots Reviving Foot Spray. The latter is my favourite at the moment, and it is this spray that will be in my handbag ready for our trip to Whitby in September (we do LOADS of walking and we are sharing a cottage with another couple ~ we need to make sure our feet are sociable!) ~~~HOW MUCH & WHERE FROM? The Boots Foot spray costs £2.90 for a 150ml bottle. This compares well to the Avon Spray, which costs more and has less in (£3.50 for only 100ml) and also to the Bodyshop one that also costs £3.50 for 100ml. You can either buy it from Boots stores or by visiting their website at www.wellbeing.com (although there is a postage charge from there). Currently it is available as part of the 3 for two offer ~ I took advantage of this and also got some Boots Softening Foot Lotion (Alun is having a bit of trouble with dry skin on his feet at the moment) and some Luxury Invigorating Foot Scrub (the lift isn't working at the moment and my feet need a bit of extra TLC right now!). ~~~HOW TO USE & WHAT IT CONTAINS. The spray is really easy to apply ~ you just take off the lid, hold it a short distance away (I generally go for about 10-15cm) from your feet and spray evenly in a sweeping motion all over. I would recommend that you keep your feet off the floor for a short while until they dry ~ this only takes a minute and makes sure you don't get fluffy feet (this ha
ppens when you walk on carpets with wet feet ~ believe me?I've tried!). I would advise you to spray the soles of your feet first then move onto the toes, etc, because then you will be able to put your feet down on the floor quicker when they dry. It contains mint, witch hazel and cypress and is medicated, so it also has a deodorizing effect on the feet. I also sometimes spray it directly into my shoes to freshen them up ~ it is cheaper than the Scholl deodorizing spray and is less powdery too! I also like the fact that the bottle is a pump action one and not an aerosol. ~~~WHAT I THOUGHT. ***Good Things*** The spray is quick, convenient and effective. It is nicely scented ~ the dominant smell is the mint, but it isn?t overpowering and smells like it is going to refresh and cool even before you use it! It isn't greasy and dries pretty quickly ~ once you realize that the texture is liquid and not gel like! The container is light and fits easily into a day bag ~ I wouldn't say a small handbag would be suitable, it is more the size to go in a beach bag, or the size of bag a woman generally has to carry when going out for the day (a slightly larger size to accommodate toilet paper, plasters and other "day out" essentials). It certainly works and I find that is has a good cooling effect on my tired tootsies and feet. It does make them smell more pleasant too ~ which is a VERY good thing! I have had my spray since last August, so it has lasted a fortnight in Spain, a week in Whitby and numerous trips to beer festivals around the country. I still have about a third of the bottle left (the bottle is opaque, so you can see EXACTLY) how much remains) and I did find out that Alun has been using it too, so I would say it is a long lasting product and good value for money. Coverage is good and, if you use the even spraying motion I mentioned earlier, it doesn?t take much of the spray to cover both feet.
The aroma is lovely (in my opinion) and the spray has a calming effect that relaxes and makes your feet feel really good. When you first apply there is a nice fresh tingly sensation that also makes your feet feel happy! ***Bad Things*** It isn't all plain sailing because there are a couple of niggles I have about the container. The lid comes off quite easily and, before I realized this, I did have a few occasions when the container leaked in my bag. There wasn't much spillage, but it did happen. I now keep my bottle in a little plastic bag inside to stop this happening again. The astringency of the spray does mean that it stings a bit if you put in on broken skin, but this is only a mild irritation and doesn't seem to do any harm. There is also a slightly medicated scent that could put some people off. It isn?t too strong, but it is something you need to be aware of. I actually like the smell, but some people have said they aren?t too keen on the combination of the mint and the deodorizing ingredients. Although very effective I do find that the effects aren't quite as long lasting as I would like. It is necessary to reapply quite frequently ~ the cooling effect is lovely though, so this isn't too much of a hardship. ~~~WOULD I RECOMMEND IT? I am certainly impressed with the spray. The ease of use, good value for money, deodorizing effect and fresh minty/herbal scent make it a product I would recommend. It left my feet feeling refreshed, smelling nice and cooled down after a lot of walking and time standing on my feet. I would say it is suitable for most people and most skin types, but I would always check first that you aren't allergic to any of the ingredients (or do a patch test) before using it. As far as I can tell, it does exactly what it is supposed to do and smells lovely to boot! So...recommended? Definitely!
