Soap & Glory Heel Genius
Advantages: Works well, looks great, fantastic results
I love soap and glory, and I love my feet! When I get out the shower I always apply some body butter, specially during the winter months, and put some on my feet too which usually does the trick. Over the festive season I've been over worked with long shifts at work leaving me with sweaty, tired and sore feet at the end of each day and after a week or so it became evident that I really needed to directly start looking after my feet. I've never tried any creams, lotions or potions specifically for feet so my first foot cream was being judged by my first experience as I didn't have anything to compare it to! I'd heard great things about Soap & Glory's Heel Genius and as a massive Soap and Glory fan I hunted for it and purchased it from my local Boots.
It's quite pricey for a 125ml tube, I find that soap and glory products are quite expensive and I tend to make one off purchases with their products and try not to use them all the time, just to treat myself!
"Better than a pedicure? It renovates rough feet in a single overnight session, doubles as a foot cream, and will give even the roughest of cuticles a run for its money. Featuring allantoin, glycerin, macadamia oil, menthol, bilberry, orange and lemon fruit acid smoothers."
The packaging is very classic of Soap and Glory with the hot pink bottle, bold attractive writing and hygienic mess free flip cap. One of the things I love about soap and glory is that their packaging is extremely attractive and looks fantastic with my other products, making me want to buy more to add to my hot pink collection!
The product itself is quite a weird greeny/blue colour but really fits in with the soothing idea of the product. The consistency is not to thin or thick it's just right for absorbency, and can be squeezed out of the bottle quite easily. Only a small amount was used and it covered my entire foot with a little left so I could treat my hands too! I applied the product to both feet and put on some cotton socks before bed.
In the morning my feet felt glorious! They were lovely and soft and definitely felt rejuvenated after all those long shifts of standing and walking around. I was worried about the colour of the product would dye my socks but it absorbed so well into my skin that there was no residue on my socks whatsoever. However some of the product didn't absorb properly (between my toes and around my ankles) which was uncomfortable the next day when my feet started to sweat during work, although it kept them smelling nice :)
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with sore and dry feet, it's a lovely treat that does what it says on the tin. Although I think what would put a lot of people off is the price, £5.50 is quite expensive for a 125ml bottle of foot cream and there are other brands available for a fraction of this price.
