“ Brand: The Body Shop / Spray / Type: Foot Spray „
I often wear leather shoes to work and I have to say that leather shoes tend to be smelly after prolong wearing. To solve this problem, I have purchased this Lemongrass Deodorising Foot Spray from the Body Shop.
The foot spray comes in a simple spray bottle containing 100ml. It comes with a lime colour label which I like. The colour is fresh and is consistent with the smell of the product! The design is also very simple which is in line with the Body Shop Brand Image.
The product is basically a simple spray to be used on your feet. According to the product label, you spritz the spray on your feet when they're feeling less than fresh and the naturally deodorising lemongrass oil in the product will do its job.
The smell of the product is very good and very fresh. It is a bit sweet and lemony giving it a very fresh scent to smell at. The light yellow colour is also good and fresh to look at!
I like to apply this spary in the morning before going out. It does smell good and refreshing and make me awake in the morning!
Coming to the most important part, can it reduce the not-so-nice smell in your shoes after a day of wearing? The answer is yes. It does HELP to reduce the not-so-nice smell in your shoes and your feet but do not expect that it will go away totally. It just help to reduce.
Overall I would say that it's a good product to use and it is a product that I will keep on repurchasing.
I received The Body Shop's Lemongrass Deodorising Foot Spray as part of a goodie bag put together by my sister for my 30th birthday. My first thought was 'cheeky cow' but I must admit that when I wear pumps or trainers without socks, the shoes - and in turn my feet - STINK!
With the hot weather we have been having this week, my feet are all hot and bothered, and the little ballet pumps I have been wearing for work are taking the brunt of it. I remembered the Foot Spray that I had relegated to the back of the bathroom cabinet and thought I would give it a whirl.
The bottle is quite small, at about 5 or 6 inches, with a pale yellow liquid inside. The foot spray is dispensed via an easy pump action nozzle.
There is an instant cooling sensation when it is sprayed onto the feet, which is very welcome at the moment due to the intense heat we are having, and it dries within around 10 seconds but still leaves your feet feeling cool for a few minutes afterwards.
I find the smell of the spray a little off putting, because I think it smells like a lemon kitchen cleaner, but it isn't worse than cheesy feet!
I can't tell you the price of the spray because as I said, I didn't buy it for myself. It isn't something I would buy for myself, because the cooling effect isn't very long lasting and I would rather just wash my stinking trotters instead of masking the pong in future.
Edited to add....
Ingredients are..... Alchol Denat., Aqua, Propylene Glycol, Citral, Panthenol, Parfum, Limonene, Geraniol, Cymbopogon schoenanthus, Linalool, Tocopherol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Citronellol, Hydroxycitronellal, Eugenol, Denatonium Benzoate, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Farnesol, Isoeugenol, Benzyl Alchol, Coumarin, CI 19140.........phew, suppose the good thing is that The Body Shop don't test their products on animals.
Although I think I look after myself pretty well I must admit that I do neglect my feet. I also have a confession to make to all Dooyooers - my feet smell!
Don't get me wrong, I take care washing & drying them but then just cover them up with socks, uggs, slippers or clogs.
It may be my age (the time of life when temperatures rise & Fall with no warning) or it may be genetic or lack of airing but I definitely keep them covered in case I upset anyone!
I've tried some good products over the years including lotions & powders & have been pleased with many but disappointed with some. The one I've been using for a few months now is the Bodyshop Lemon Grass Deodorising Spray which I'm well pleased with.
It cost around £4 & even after using it at least once a day I still have plenty left in the spray bottle.
It's really easy to use because you just use where needed & one spray will cover one foot (tho' I must point out I'm only a size 4) so it's very economical to use compared to some similar products.
The smell is predominantly one of lemongrass, but, although citrusy it's not overwhelmingly strong - just very fresh. It seems to work instantly by cooling down the feet & freshening them either directly on the feet or through tights/ socks etc.
I've also sprayed some in my clogs & boots which works at keeping odours away. Although I don't really get puffy or swollen feet I've noticed that, after a hard day's shopping, that one spray on each foot seems to make them feel less tired.
On the bottle it states that the product is suitable for all skin types - I obviously not use it if I had an cuts on my feet or cracked heels due to the citrus - ouch!
It states that 'lemongrass oil refreshes naturally & adds extra zing to fancy footwork' - well, I'm not sure about this statement - anyone want to dance with me?
I like the fact it's not greasy or oily as I hate sliding around in my socks, it's easy to use & very economical in the long run.
- good for smelly feet.
- good for tired feet.
- non-oily/ greasy.
- easy to use & no waste.
- pleasant, not overpowering smell.
- worth a try I'd say?
i like to look after my feet and put on some lotion at bed time and put my nice fluffy socks on. However first thing at morning I spray some foot spray often into my shoes if it's trainers and spray some spray onto my feet as well, as I like my feet to be nice and fresh.
You find with most of the Body Shop things, they are quite expensive, and this is. The last time I bought this, which was 4 months ago it cost £4 for a 100ml bottle. Doesn't sound a lot, but since this is a pump action spray, then you find it lasts longer than a standard aerosol.
I spray this twice on my feet and I would say that a bottle lasts approx 2 months if i'm using it every other day, which isn't too bad.
The bottle was kind of plain looking, but you find this with the Body Shop things. It is just a plastic bottle with a spray which has a little plastic lid over it. The label wraps all the way around the bottle and is very minimal, which adds to the appeal of the Body Shop.
Now to the important part - the smell. This smells quite citrussy and very fresh. It seems to have a kind of gritty scent behind it, but it is mostly fresh, airy lemon scent. When you spray this onto your feet it refreshes even with 2 squirts and I found at night after taking my socks off there was still a hint of the smell.
There are certainly cheaper foot sprays out there, but if you want a bit "luxury" then I would say this is a great product.
I originally discovered The Body Shop's Lemongrass Deodorising Foot Spray a good few years ago, as a change from the Peppermint one I first used. I used it after the gym to cool down my feet, then I stopped using it when I fell off the exercise wagon other than when I go away as it has remained a holiday beauty bag staple for as long as I can remember. However, I revisited it regularly in desperation during my early summer pregnancy when I was permanantly boiling hot, as I needed something to freshen my feet up and help to cool me down, as well as soothing them when they ached after I had been at work all day.
It comes in a 100ml bottle which can be purchased from The Body Shop for £5, and it will last a very long time. I only buy it every few months, and that is with daily use as you literally give each foot on squirt.
The bottle is frosted transparent plastic with an atomiser spray top. It has a lime green label with dark forest green writing on it. It claims to provide instant relief for hot and tired feet. Unsurprising its smell is of lemons but not the bitter traditional lemon smell, it is sweeter. Personally I am not overly keen on the scent as I think lemons generally smell more refreshing than this product does, it smells a bit like musty lemons to me.
You spray it directly onto dry feet when they need instant relief. It is primarily a soothing, relieving product rather than a preventative one. You can use it before you put socks and shoes on if you suffer from smelly feet but I am not sure what difference it makes, if any as this is not something that I suffer from. I do use it before I go out for a walk on holiday though as it has deodorising properties and this is when feet are most likely to sweat.
It is especially good for when you come home from a day of shopping, for example, as slipping your shoes or boots off and giving feet a quick squirt is instantly soothing and reduces any puffiness or redness rapidly. You just squirt then keep feet off the floor until the spray dries, which is very quick. You also have to remember to let it dry before putting socks on or the socks just wipe the spray off as you pull them on.
I do not rate this product as highly as the peppermint version as it is just not as refreshing as the peppermint. I think it is a great product but the choice of scent is not the best....you don't feel as fresh as when you use the peppermint scented spray. That said, it is still a useful product to have and it is not particularly pricey so worth a try if you are on your feet a lot - I even used to use it in my breaks at work if I was particularly tired.
You would think that, having bought this product, I suffer from pongy feet, but actually I don't - no, honestly! What I do suffer from is hot feet, especially in the summer and I wanted something to use as a refresher to my long-suffering tootsies.
I had read an opinion about The Body Shop Lemongrass Deodorising Foot Spray and thought that it sounded just the job so, when I was next in town, I headed for our local branch of The Body Shop and sought out the said foot spray.
It is in a clear plastic bottle, which is about six inches tall with a spray head covered by a black cap. It contains 100ml of a lemon coloured liquid, which is watery in consistency.
The label on the front of the bottle is the usual no nonsense Body Shop label in bright green. This one has two foot prints, the name of the product in white lettering and the words 'All Skin Types' and 'Make cool tracks for fresh feet'.
The label on the reverse of the bottle tells us that 'Instant relief for tired feet is just a spray away' and that 'lemongrass oil refreshes naturally and adds extra zing to fancy footwork'.
It cost £3.50 per bottle and, since I had read such a good opinion about it, I decided to give it a go. Another factor in my choice is that The Body Shop does not test any of their products on animals. I accept that animal testing is necessary for the development of some medicines and medical procedures, but there is no reason to put animals through pain just for our vanity.
Right, I'll jump back off my soapbox and continue.
The instructions on the back of the bottle read 'spray throughout the day' and it also advises the use of the other products in the Lemongrass range, which are Foot Soak, Foot Polish and Foot Powder Lotion, but I'll probably just stick with the spray for my purposes.
I took off the black cap and sprayed the bottom of my feet. The container is just the right size to hold and spray, so someone obviously did his or her research there.
The first thing I noticed was the fragrance - it is lovely! Obviously it is the smell of lemongrass as you would expect, but it is light, refreshing and has a lovely citrus zing to it. Such a lot of foot products are fragranced with peppermint, which is a non-starter for me since I don't like either the taste or smell of peppermint very much at all.
One spray covered the sole of my foot easily and the sensation was a cool, refreshing yet soothing tingle. The liquid itself was the viscosity of perfume and was quick drying and non greasy, so I was very impressed! I hate greasy liquids or creams, as my skin tends to be greasy anyway without any outside help.
Although there was a tingling sensation as I sprayed, this was pleasant and not irritating or stinging at all.
The spray can be used as often as you like and can be sprayed though socks or tights and it still dries quickly.
The effect of the refreshing feeling lasts for a while, probably about an hour or so on my feet. I am on the go quite a lot during the day as we still live in our three storey house (which we are trying to sell!) so I am often running downstairs, so this is great for giving my feet a bit of a lift, especially when the weather is hot.
I also find that it helps with certain shoes and slippers. Have you ever noticed that some footwear, especially slippers, tend to retain the stale smell of feet? Well, this foot spray even helps with that too! I noticed that my new Christmas slippers were a bit whiffy, even though my feet don't smell particularly, but when I used my foot spray and put my slippers on immediately the fragrance worked on my slippers too! How's that for good value then? I have also sprayed it directly onto the inside of the slippers which works as well.
Talking of value, at £3.50 for 100ml, the foot spray is excellent value for money in my case as I use it when my feet feel particularly hot or tired. I can't say how long it would last if you were using it all day every day, but I think I would still consider it good value as it is such a good product.
Obviously the place to buy it is The Body Shop and there are branches in most towns these days, so that's not going to cause a problem. I did look on the website, but it wasn't listed there as one of their products, but that may be because the web site is US based and the product is possibly one made for the UK market.
Anyway I think that's about all there is to say apart from, if you're in Llandudno and you smell someone with citrus feet, it might just be me!
100mL / When you're in a rush this is the perfect solution for odour-free feet /
