“ Brand: Boots / Type: Foot Care / Suitable for: Foot / What it does: Soothes, „
I bought this when I was pregnant as I was suffering with tired aching feet. I picked it up in Boots where it cost £3.29 for 150ml bottle. Even though my daughter was born 10 weeks ago I still like to soak my feet at least once a week as I find it is relaxing and it helps me to unwind.
Boots foot bath contains mint, witch hazel and calendula.
Calendula is used to heal wounds and soothe skin it is also an antiseptic.
Witch hazel is an anti-inflamatory and is used to reduce swelling.
Mint is a natural anti-septic.
I use this foot bath in a small bowl, which I fill with warm water. I then add about half a cap full of the foot bath and swirl it around. It does make a few bubbles in the water. When you pour the foot soak into the water you get a really nice minty smell with a hint of menthol.
You then soak your feet for about 15 minutes before drying them thoroughly.
Whilst using this my feet instantly feet soothed, I could feel the mint making my toes tingle. The smell rises as well so as your sat there soaking your feet it also clears your head.
After using this my hot and tired feet felt cool and soothed. Boots also make a cream and a scrub to compliment this product. I have only tried the cream which works really well with this soak.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes to treat their feet after a long day. It reduces puffiness and swelling and makes your whole body relax. A bottle would last a long time too if you were to use this 2-3 times a week, I bought mine 4 months ago and it is still 3/4 full.
The one thing I badly neglect is my feet. Sometimes though I get an attack of the guilt's and that's when I splash out on products to try and pamper my poor old feet to an inch of their lives with and one day a couple of weeks ago I stumbled over this product (pardon the pun lol) and decided to give it a try!
150ml see-through plastic bottle with a screw on/off white cap/lid to the top of it. Around the middle of it, it has a mint green coloured label and on the front of that in white and navy blue writing I'm told it is Boots Soothing Foot Bath 'With mint, witch hazel and calendula' and there is a small picture of a leaf on there. Other information to the sides of the bottle includes being told a bit about the product, directions for use are given, size is stated (as I've listed already), ingredients are listed and contact details for boots are given. It's a simple looking, functional product that is informative enough and easy to open etc.
A Bit About The Product According To The The Information Given On The Bottle:
A soothing, medicated and antiseptic foot bath to cleanse and soften hot, tired feet.
Contains natural herbal extracts.
Suitable for all skin types.
Directions For Use:
Add 3 capfuls to a bowl of warm water and stir gently. Bathe feet for about 10 minutes. Dry feet thoroughly, particularly between the toes.
Me Using It:
Well all I do to use this of course if follow the instructions given to me on the bottle.
I tip in about 3 capfuls of the green, translucent gel like runnyish liquid into a bowl of water, swish it about a bit and then soak me feet!
The smell of this is really pleasant, fresh and clean. It has a smell of leaves to me and a slight hint of minty freshness to it. Whatever that fragrance is though it is suitable for anyone to use and the smell does linger on your feet a while after soaking them in it making them feel fresher for longer!
It makes the water feel soft and gentle and none greasy but that's it really. I did expect a slight tingle or something but all I got was a feeling of gentle moisturisation and a few bubbles that vanished rather quickly although it was entirely pleasant to use of course.
When done you get rid of the water and dab feet dry and that's it...job done of course!
This leaves feet feeling a little revitalised, soft and rather comfortable. Although I had a popped blister of my feet this didn't agigtate that open wound at all and as it contains witch hazel so I knew that it was gently cleansing that out for me! All round this is simply a nice relaxing foot soak to use and more than anything my feet really do feel clean and slightly softer after using it and for a bout £2.99 in Boots per bottle I think it is a nice little product and a little of it goes a very long way so it does work out economical too!
