I am not overly familiar with Elle Macpherson or her products if I'm totally honest with you. I know she's a model with her range of things on sale as so many 'celebs' do now but thats all really. I often see her products in Boots and have recoiled at the prices and this product costing almost £10.00 seemed steep to me. However my feet were looking grotty at the time and I was out specifically looking for something to soften and smooth my dried out webbed feet! So with my free points I had accumulated at Boots I took the plunge thinking a whole pedicure in a pot was a great idea and deffo up a lazy girls street like me!
The pot comes in a turquoise box with a photograph of a half naked Elle of the front and I'm told of course that it is Elle Macpherson 'The Body' Pedicure In A Jar 'An exhilarating yet soothing cream to give neglected feet a real treat.... socks enclosed for a longer pamper!, and the size is stated which is 175ml. On the back of the box other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, directions for use are given, ingredients are stated as are the contact details for the manufacturer. Inside the box you get a clear plastic tub with a brown and turquoise plastic lid that twists on and off again there is Elle's photograph on there and we are told what it is once again. On the base of the pot, again your told what it is and how to use it and to use it up within 24 months of opening it and again contact details for the manufacturer are given. Inside a clear plastic packet you get a plain pair of cotton white good quality 'one size fits all) socks. Nice packaging and of course it's all informative as it needs to be.
A Bit About The Product:
Elle Macpherson Pedicure In A Jar is an exhilarating yet smoothing cream to give neglected feet a real treat. This treatment balm for feet contains tingly menthol, gentle honey and vitamin E. Use as a quick "pick me up" or in conjunction with socks to help combat dryness and leave feet softer and smoother
This is a pure white gloopy looking mixture and appears rather wet but does have some body to it but it isn't a stiff cream. You simply massage this into feet and then you can pop the socks on for say an overnight moisturising treat for really dried out feet or simply apply a blob to your feet and continue on with your day.
Applying this couldn't be simpler. It feels like silk when rubbing it in with a little grease to it to aid the application and then it dries leaving a slight moisturising feeling on the feet but not one bit greasy. To me it has a sort of lemon-balm and menthol smell to it, totally unisex in fragrance and it's a very fresh and clean smell and that smells stays on the feet for hours too along with the gentle moisturising effect it gives!
My feet feel instantly moisturised, clean and supple after using this liquid silk like product. I use it when I feel the need and it moisturises my skin beautifully and softens my cuticles making them easier to trim/remove from my toenails. Once a week when my feet really were cracked and dried up I used this with the socks and overnight most of my dry skin had vanished into thin air.
Just because this is a celebrity sort of endorsed product don't be fooled. It's a high price because its fabulous and works, not because of who is behind it and I'd recommend this to anyone with dry feet, tired and aching feet, people who want there feet to smell fresh or you simply want something to make your nails look shiny and healthy. It really is a superb product this one and very much worth it's £9.95 price tag because not only does it work superbly but it lasts ages as well cos you don't need much per application! Excellent stuff and I won't hesitate in repurchasing this in the future as its simply an amazing treatment!
I have only seen this available in Boots or on sale online (Google if interested!).
