Unfortunately I suffer with sweaty feet and I am always on the look out for any products to help with this issue. I picked up a bottle of this up in Lush for around £5. According to Lush this is a deodorising powder that absorbs sweat or moisture and zaps away the microbes that cause smells with antibacterial essential oils. Tea tree oil forms a dream team with T for Toes’ bicarbonate and kaolin absorbent powder base: it’s a powerful antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic essential oil.
I tend to sprinkle this in my shoes before wearing and sprinkle on my feet as and when required to freshen them up. It is a very light powder, like talc. It has fresh, zesty smell which is refreshing and uplifting.
The product is very good at freshening up shoes which are smelling worse for wear! I feel this is a nice, natural alternative to using aerosol based foot products; which are full of chemicals and usually smell terrible, requiring lots of ventilation. The bottle is 60g in weight and can drop easily and discreetly in your bag, with no one knowing what you are carrying.
The only thing to be weary of is where you apply the powder. If used over dark carpet, you are likely to make a mess. It is a good idea to this in the bathroom of over a towel to make sure you don't make a mess of the floor!
Ive had this for a good 6 months and have only used half of the bottle, so a lot definitely goes a long way. the use by date is generally a couple of years too.
I bought this last summer as I was on the lookout for a decent foot product.
I think this product costs in the region of £6, which is about average for a Lush product.
The powder resembles ordinary talcum powder. It has the same consistency but I think this one looks more like flour. It smells nice. I would describe the scent of the powder as fresh and invigorating. It contains natural extracts of Tea Tree Oil and Peppermint. The Tea Tree Oil acts as an antibacterial agent whilst the Peppermint works on foot odour, leaving your feet smelling minty fresh.
The powder is easy to use. You can use it in two ways. The first way is to sprinkle it directly onto the feet. Simply shake the tub and the powder comes out. It's quite fun to use but it can be a little messy so make sure that you shake it over a towel or something. The powder leaves my feet (and toes) feeling fresh and energised, plus they smell a lot better too! The effect is long lasting and overall my feet just feel great.
The second way to use it is to shake it directly into your footwear. I shake mine into my Uggs, my trainers and my work shoes. This leaves your shoes smelling great and the powder stays inside the shoes all day. In fact I can still smell it in my shoes a week later! Plus the tub is easy to carry around with you.
Great foot powder from Lush.
I love Lush products and over the years have been working my way through the collection. I love treating my feet on a frequent basis and I bought this as I had previously read great reviews on this. It comes in a black container which contains 100g of powder and costs £6.45.
Lush claim that this product will help prevent smelly feet because the absorbent powders will kill off the microbes that breed in the moisture on your feet with anti-fungal and antibacterial essential oils.
The ingredients are listed online as;
Kaolin, Sodium Bicarbonate, Powdered Horsetail Herb (Equisetum arvense), Powdered Walnut Leaf (Juglans regia), Powdered Broom Tops (Cytisus scoparius), Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Citral, Geraniol, Citronellol, Limonene, Linalool, Perfume.
This product is simple to use, you can sprinkle it onto your toes before putting your socks and shoes on. Or as I prefer to do you can sprinkle some of the powder directly into your shoes.
I was initially sceptical about this product as I am not normally a fan of talc type products, however I noticed a difference in my feet almost immediately. The powder has a lovely tea tree and mint fragrance. If you use it directly in your shoes it makes them smell really fresh, I highly recommend this for trainers. If you use it directly on the feet it helps remove excess moisture as well as kill bacteria on your feet, so if like myself you occasionally suffer athletes foot it can help to clear this up.
My only tip for using this would be to do so over the bath or over a towel to avoid getting white powder all over the floor! I would recommend this to anyone who has scary and smelly feet! it is simple to use, it lasts for months and is completely natural.
The quality of the *product* is great. It stops my feet sweating and getting stinky. The quality of the packaging is terrible. Putting this on your feet means you will get powder on the floor, on your trousers (so put this on before you put anything else on), white fingers, so run some water over your hands before touching anything soft as it will leave a white mark. I'm only using this as a substitute for deo in my pits, as Mitchum irritates them now and I need to use this up. It does work, but again little puffs of powder fall everywhere. Ladies, if you run out of deo, you can use this on your pits, but put your bra on first!! Men, you just clamp your arms to your sides! I'm not going to buy tis product again unless they change the packaging, or I learn how to stop makig such a mess with it.
