About the producer
Oriflame was established in 1967 by two brothers in Sweden who wanted to sell natural cosmetics that have not been tested on animals. You cannot find these beauty products in shops or pharmacies; they are sold to you directly by a Consultant from whom you can also get a direct advice. They distribute catalogues or hold Beauty Demonstrations during which you can touch, smell and try their products before ordering them. Even though the first Consultants started distributing Oriflame products in the UK three years after the company was established, they don't seem to be very popular here which in my opinion is a shame as there are quite a few Oriflame cosmetics definitely worth trying.
Our feet and toes are apparently the most neglected parts of our body. We often forget that they provide the foundation on which we stand and keep us mobile yet no one wants calluses or fungal infections. I personally have problems with painful cracked heels and dry, rough feet therefore I keep on searching for good foot care products.
The producer claims that this cream will ease discomfort and relieve hard skin and calluses. According to Oriflame, Foot Salvation will soften and smooth your feet; their appearance is meant to improve within two weeks. As for me, it sounded tempting so I decided to give it a go.
The appearance, texture and scent
Oriflame Foot Salvation is supplied in a thick, shiny silver 50ml tub with a lid conveniently placed at the bottom. It is clearly labeled at the front with a list of ingredients at the back. The design is fairly plain yet modern though I must say that I believe you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and I'm more interested in the content.
This foot cream is simply white. I don't really like runny foot creams as I always think they won't moisturise my feet sufficiently (I'm probably wrong though) so I was glad to discover that its texture is fairly thick. I really don't need much cream each time I apply so this little 50ml tub was sitting on my bathroom shelf for a relatively long period of time.
The scent is unsurprisingly minty which I'm not a fan of. Yet this one was fairly pleasant and mild so I could put up with it. I was also under the impression that it disappears quite quickly (or maybe I just got used to it).
I apply it only once a day, in the evening. Before I go to bed, I spread the cream on my feet and I quickly put socks on in hope for smooth, soft feet in the morning. This cream lived up to my hopes: with each day of usage, I could see a continuous improvement in the appearance of my feet. They definitely were becoming softer and smoother; the cream also dealt with my cracked heels. There is nothing more I could be asking for and I'm really pleased with this cream.
This cream contains salicylic acid, shea butter and peppermint essential oil which according to the producer are the ingredients which help to soften and smooth the skin. As I've mentioned, they definitely work. Full list of ingredients can be found at the back of the cream.
Foot Salvation needs to be used within twelve months of opening. It was not tested on animals and the container is fully recyclable.
Price and availability
As I've mentioned above, you can order Oriflame products from their consultants. If you don't know any, you can easily find one through their website (or perhaps become one yourself and earn a bit of cash). They are also available on Ebay but the company disapproves of this method of selling as it's against their values.
One tub of cream costs £6.45 but I found it on offer and saved £2. In my opinion, it represents good value for money.
Thank you for reading my review.
