I received this Burt's Bees peppermint foot lotion as part of a set I was given for Christmas. I was excited to try the products as they are known for their good quality and natural ingredients. I was particularly excited about this peppermint foot cream because I particularly love peppermint foot products because they soothe my often tired feet.
The design is the tube is consistent with the items on offer from this range. It comes in a flexible plastic tub which is coloured yellow and white. It has a screw top lid and branding on both sides of the tube. This design makes it easy to use and it stands out amongst other beauty products as yellow tends to be an unusual colour, particularly for a peppermint scented product.
The cream has a lovely thick consistency which is exactly what I liked in a foot cream. It has a very strong punchy mint smell to it which is very pleasant and refreshing. The cream has a lovely rich creamy feel to it which is lovely when applied to tough, tired skin. The peppermint makes your skin slightly tingle which is a nice sensation on tired feet and it leaves them smelling very fresh too.
I find that this cream helps to relieve the feeling of tiredness and aching when used on my feet. I am a busy student who has several jobs where I do an awful lot of standing and moving around so for me this is an absolute blessing. My feel are also left feeling soft and supple and it hydrates the often dry skin I get on the heel of my foot.
The only real catch with this product is that it is by no means a cheap cream. In fact, it retails at around £12.00 for a 100ml tube which is definitely a high price to pay. I'm glad to have tried it and have really enjoyed using the product. That said I'm not sure I can justify the high price given that I am a poor student. I think if I was to treat myself this would be the product I would choose, but for now that is but a distant dream.
In the summer my feet get hot after a long day at work and I use Burt's Bees peppermint foot lotion to help relieve them. You can pick up a 100ml tube of the lotion for around £11.99 in most major department stores and also on Amazon and in Boots.
The lotion comes in a white plastic tube that is decorated with flowers and leaves. It has a screw top plastic lid that is easy to use and does not clogg. The tube dispenses the product well and can be stood on its lid. As will all Burt's Bees products the ingredients are not tested on animals and they do not use and parabens, sulphates, phthlates or petrochemicals. The ingredients of the peppermint foot lotion are:
aqua (water, eau), helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, glycerin, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, cera alba (beeswax, cire d'abeille), mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, stearic acid, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) bark extract, sodium bicarbonate, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, carum petroselinum (parsley) leaf oil, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (sweet orange) peel wax, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, tocopherol, parfum (fragrance), sucrose stearate, glucose, xanthan gum, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil (huile de colza), sodium borate, sodium chloride, glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase, limonene
The product is very thick in consistency, not as I thought a lotion would be, these tend to be thinner in consistency in my experience. The lotion is easily absorbed into my feet and after a few moments you get a tingly feeling all over the foot which is very refreshing, cooling and soothing on my tired feet. The smell of peppermint is very strong and tends to linger for quite sometime. I find that the lotion is also very good at softening your skin and I sometimes put on an bit extra, put a pair of socks on and leave for a while, which helps to make my feet even softer, the fact that the lotion contains beewax helps to soften any hard skin you may have on your heels as well.
The lotion contains white hazel and tea tree along with parsley and sodium bicarbonate that is supposed to prevent and help with foot odour, though I cannot comment on how effective this is as in summer I tend to wear sandals and do not suffer with smelly feet.
Overall I would recommend this product to others, it helps relieve achy and tired feet, whilst having the added benefit of moisturizing them, it is well priced and smells great, plus the product does not contain any nasty chemicals.
Before I embarked on my long haul flight to Australia last year,I treated myself to a range of products that I thought would make the travelling more comfortable. When buying I had to keep in mind the size and weight of any purchases as I was limited for space. Like many people I suffer from swollen feet and ankles when I travel by plane ,despite doing lots of foot and leg exercises! Whilst looking for products in my local Boots I came across a foot lotion made by Burt's bees that promised of offer relief from the problem.
Burt's Bees foot lotion comes in a travel convenient 100 ml screw top tube. This is the maximum size you are allowed to take on a plane in your hand luggage. The tube is predominantly yellow and is decorated with peppermint leaves and flowers. It is made using 100 % natural ingredients and is not tested on animals. The lotion contains a range of ingredients including sunflower, wheat germ and coconut oil;all ingredients that are well known moisturisers. Witch hazel ,tea tree oil, Parsley and Rosemary to help prevent foot odour.Tea tree is a mild antiseptic so will help prevent fungal infections such as athletes foot. The lotion also contains peppermint oil and menthol,both of these will help to invigorate tired feet and relieve aching muscles. Peppermint oil can also be used as a mosquito repellent! Peppermint oil can aslo help to reduce headaches and as this lotion smells strongly of peppermint there may be other benefits apart from those felt on my feet! Finally the lotion contains Bees wax to help seal in the benefits .
The cream is quite think and not what I would describe as a lotion at all. It has a strong minty smell that I really love. You really only need a little of the cream as it is quite greasy and takes a while to massage into your feet. I used this several times during my flight and found it really helped to keep my feet feeling fresh and also reduced the problem I have with swelling. After a few minutes I found my feet started to tingle slightly; a sensation I liked! I hasten to add I was sitting by the window next to my children so no other passenger was harmed as I bared my feet!
I continued to use the lotion during my trip and found that not only did it relive tired and aching feet,but it also made my feet feel and look soft. I suffer from dry cracked skin on my heels especially when I wear sandals during the summer months. Although the lotion didn't entirely cure the problem,it certainly improved things!
Burt's Bees is a top end brand and this is not a cheap lotion! I paid £11.99 for my 100ml tube and although that's more than I would normally pay;I think it is worth it!
