I've been purchasing a lot of stuff from The Body Shop recently, mainly because they almost always have some sort of special offer. I purchased a small 60ml bottle of this Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray in a 3 for 2 offer on travel size products in-store. It normally costs £3, while the larger 100ml bottle is typically £5.
The spray is designed to be a refreshing, cooling spray to revive hot, tired feet, as well as combating odour. It comes in a clear plastic spray bottle with the Body Shop logo and a picture of a foot. Inside the bottle, the liquid is an attractive aqua blue. It's easy to see how much you have left in the bottle, which is very convenient.
This Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray is made with Community Fair Trade peppermint oil bought from Norfolk Essential Oils, which is a family-run cooperative in the east of England. The Body Shop has a tradition of promoting Fair Trade and ethical initiatives and it's good to see that this is continuing even though they are now owned by L'Oreal.
The spray has a reasonably strong smell which is lovely. It is a sugary peppermint smell which is very pleasant and refreshing. An initial spray or two on the foot creates a nice cooling sensation and it seems to cool down the feet especially in hot weather. The light tingling, cooling sensation is really refreshing and you can spray it on your legs too, if you fancy it, though The Body Shop also produce a Cooling Leg Gel for this purpose (they've thought of everything!).
As well as helping to cool down the feet, it is also claimed that the spray helps to reduce foot odour. Unfortunately I do suffer from stinky feet from time to time, and I find that this spray, while it doesn't get rid of the problem completely, does help to mask it to a certain extent.
I think this spray is expensive for what it is, but since The Body Shop are always running special offers or discount promotions, there's no real need to buy it at the full price. The small bottle is handy to carry around in your bag, while the larger bottle is ideal for keeping at home, perhaps in the fridge (though I think my housemates would have a fit if I started spraying my feet in the kitchen!). Altogether, a lovely and effective product, particularly in the summer.
WHAT IS IT?
A peppermint spray that The Body Shop promise will help refresh and enliven hot tired feet.
A clear plastic bottle filled with blue green liquid. The aqua label gives you all the information you need about the foot spray and the spray nozzle is covered by a plastic push on lid.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
You just direct the spray at your feet or lower legs depending on where you are suffering from heat or tired feelings. The spray dries very quickly so you can use it anywhere without worrying about having to put your shoes back onto wet feet.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
I have used this foot spray for a long time on and off and it hasn't changed at all over the years. I used it most recently while I was pregnant because during my last trimester my feet became very hot and irritable. One or two sprays per foot made me feel much better and kept my feet and ankles cool.
The smell is very fresh and clean, it's quite a strong peppermint so if you don't like mint you probably won't want to use this foot spray and I would suggest a berry one that you can buy in Boots instead. The peppermint is so cool and cooling that I won't change to another one myself because even though my feet were starting to swell with the heat the spray cooled them so well that they shrank down again.
I am taking maternity leave currently but am a mobile beautician so spend a lot of time on my feet. I always carry a bottle of this around when I am working because its not messy to use so I can spray my feet in my car between appointments and it stops the burn of standing around in high heels for hours at a time.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Rummaging around The Body Shop the other week I was drawn to the large array of footcare products they had on offer and never trying anything from there for feet before, at a fiver I opted to grab a bottle of this as I am a Beauty Therapist by trade and like nice looking and nice feeling feet and occasionally I do pedicures for my friends and so on and thought this would be a nice product to add to my case.
The spray comes in a see through plastic recyclable bottle with a push button sprayer to the top of it (not aeresol) and on the front of it we are told what it is and who it is by and the size is stated which is 100ml and then on the back of the bottle there isn't all that much information given but contact details for The Body Shop are listed.
The Spray Itself:
Well to use this you simply spray it on to clean feet or at least not too grubby ones. The liquid in the bottle is a nice blue colour but once sprayed is clear like water on the skin. It has a lovely refreshing and reviving aroma of sweet peppermint to it which I really do like and it is a unisex fragrance.
I find a couple of squirts of this enough to dampen my feet and it dries in quickly. It instantly feels cooling and refreshing and that feeling I find lingers about for about 20 minutes. It does make my feet smell nice and clean and it is very deoderising keeping those nasty niffs at bay.
This is a nice handy size to take out in a bag with you as it isn't a huge product and a couple of sprays is all that is needed to revive tired, hot feet albeit a temporary feeling.
I like the fact its an instant reviver I do feel my feet are smoother and smell nice when its used and all in all I quite like this in warmer weather though I'm not really sure its worth a fiver a bottle to be honest so I'm not sure I will purchase it again to be honest but this small bottle will last me ages anyway!

This spray costs £5 per 100ml bottle and it's available to buy instore or online via The Body Shop's website.
The spray come presented in a spray bottle with a pump. You simply press down on the pump to deliver the spray.
The spray smells very minty and refreshing. I love minty aromas and this is a real minty aroma. I use this after shopping or when I get back from work, whenever my feet are aching really. You can spray this onto your feet at anytime. The spray instantly refreshes my feet, leaving them feeling energised and tingly. The spray also helps to deodorise your feet, so that they smell much cleaner and fresher. The scent lingers on your feet for a couple of hours and you can even spray the spray directly into your trainers to combat even more odour. You only need one or two sprays each time that you use this as it is quite concentrated.
I would recommend this spray. You can even keep it in the fridge for extra refreshment. It lasts ages too so I don't mind paying the £5 full price for it.
The spray does cool down your feet and it's great used directly after a soaking in the foot spa!
=== The product ===
This is a peppermint foot spray from The Body Shop. The Body Shop prides themselves on not testing their cosmetics or products on animals and this is the main reason that I am prepared to spend a little more money and buy some of their products throughout the year.
=== The packaging ===
This comes in a plastic bottle with a press down pump dispenser. The bottle has a label showing all the usual information that you would expect to find.
=== Where to buy ===
This can be purchased from The Body Shop stores, the Body Shop website or from a Body Shop At Home party host. As with many websites delivery charges may apply if ordering online for home delivery. The cost of this is currently £5.00 but like most Body Shop products this frequently goes on special offer.
=== Overall opinion ===
We got married these year and received lots of wonderful, thoughtful presents from our family and friends. One such gift was a hamper of Body Shop products for both of us and we set about taking some of these with us on honeymoon as this was the purpose some of them were really designed for. This cooling foot spray was thoughtfully chosen to keep us feeling refreshed and relaxed on our honeymoon. A foot spray is not something that I would actively think of purchasing when shopping but I generally like the idea of them just not the price.
This is a 100ml bottle of liquid so was quite convenient for paying as the liquid restrictions were 100ml meaning I could take this on the plane to keep myself refreshed while travelling to and from our honeymoon destination. I also used this several times while on holiday by putting it in a beach bag and taking it out for the day with us.
Initially I was a little worried about this colouring my feet blue but this sprays on clear and gets to work quite fast. The spray is refreshing and cooling the instant that is it sprayed and a delightful peppermint smell accompanies the spray. The peppermint is like a sweet kind of peppermint rather than a strong minty toothpaste kind of scent and this lingers in the air for a few minutes before being absorbed by my feet and then being only noticeable by actively being near my feet.
I find that the cooling sensation of this spray works instantly and my feet begin to feel wonderfully refreshed. On the days when we were on the beach and it was incredibly hot and there were hills and mountains waiting to be explored I found this to be a god send. I was able to spray my feet, slip my flip flops back on and start walking again with some of the aching eased for a little while.
My feet felt quite nice after using this, a little softer and smoother, which is always a bonus of this type of product. Minimal effort is required, just spray, air for a few seconds and then be on your way again, a real bonus when strapped for time!
I have found that the cooling refreshed sensation lasts for around 25-35 minutes at a time but this is fairly good compared to some cheaper foot sprays that I have received as gifts in the past. When standing on my feet at work all day this spray has been something of a god send and while I have to reapply a few times during the afternoon it stops some of that burning sensation and leaves me feeling refreshed and relaxed for the short walk home at night.
The Body Shop is a high street brand offering various bath, body and make up products. They are keen to use Fair Trade ingredients where possible.
*~*Cooling Foot Spray*~*
The Cooling Foot Spray from Body Shop is part of a range of foot products including gels and lotions. It contains Fair Trade peppermint oil from Norfolk
"A summer essential, this cooling spray refreshes hot, tired feet and combats odour".
This spray should refresh, scent and cool the foot area. It should be sprayed and then allowed to dry.
This foot spray is presented in a small, curvy plastic bottle which has a spray top for easy application. The bottle features an information label with a whole host of product information. The bottle can be recycled and once opened, has a shelf life of 36months.
A 100ml bottle of foot spray is available from www.bodyshop.co.uk or instore. It is priced at £5.00.
I received a bottle of this foot spray in a Body Shop hamper It isn't something I would have went out to buy myself as I find cooling products can often be a waste of money as water is ready chilled and free from the tap!
The bottle is a convenient size for popping into a hand bag for using when out and about. It is the perfect size to take out to the park or beach or if you are going out walking and fear your feet may become a bit uncomfortable. The liquid inside the bottle is tinted blue but sprays clear onto the feet. The spray is easy to use and one spray releases a sharp mist of scent which is sufficient to cover one foot.
*~*Relieving That Burn!*~*
I would say this spray is particularly handy for using during the Spring and Summer. I go out long walks and don't really pay much attention to my choice of footwear. My feet often get uncomfortable and I suffer from burning sensation on the balls of my feet which isn't exactly pleasant. This spray is effective at making my feet more comfortable and allow me to walk on for a bit longer.
Once sprayed onto my feet, the cooling sensation is instant and feels relaxed more than freezing cold. The liquid absorbs quickly into my feet and doesn't leave a sticky residue - only soft and smooth feeling feet. If I need to get on a walk more or do other things, I can quickly pop my socks or shoes back on and get going without my feet feeling slippy or damp.
The peppermint scent is very concentrated and is more of a sweet, candy mint scent than a toothpaste mint scent. I personally love the scent and it does actually linger on my feet for sometime. I don't suffer with really bad smelling feet but if its warm, they do get a bit stinky and the minty aroma overpowers this, leaving them smelling fresh and sweet.
I wouldn't say the effects of this spray last all that well. Whilst there is an instant cooling and my feet feel refreshed, after 30minutes or so, any discomfort becomes noticeable again so this is really disappointing and I feel there is more emphasis on creating a strong scent than a long lasting feeling.
Having tried a few products in the peppermint foot range, I would say I am less impressed with this one. It smells gorgeous but simply doesn't have long lasting effects. It is a nice spray to use in hot weather as it does give an instant boost but is redundant the rest of the year so one bottle lasts for ages! I would say a spritz of water would be just as effective but without the scent.
Thanks for reading x
I am a huge Body Shop fan and I love to try out as many of their products as I possibly can. One of the best things I have tried out recently has been their Peppermint Cooling Spray for feet. Oh my goodness, this is just gorgeous and so refreshing for hot tired and swollen feet.
I work in a customer services environment and I am standing on my feet for most of the day, with very little opportunity to sit down. Consequently, my poor old feet take the brunt of all that standing and by mid afternoon they are usually, hot and swollen and a little bit painful. I try to take my shoes off behind the desk and let my feet rest on the cold stone floor but if my manager is walking by I quickly have to put my shoes back on again and the relief is only very short lived.
However, I now use the Body Shop's fantastic Peppermint Cooling Spray which comes in a small 100ml pale blue bottle. It costs £3 which I personally do not think is too bad at all. besides, you only need a spray or two to each foot to obtain the desired effect. I gently shake the bottle and depress the nozzle and it delivers a lovely fine mist to my poor old feet.
The feeling is one of immediate relief. It smells of gorgeous peppermint and is really quite strong smell. It's a bit of an odd sensation, to be honest, it sort of starts off hot but then after a few seconds my feet start to feel a cooling sensation all over. I especially like the fact that I can use this spray on top of my tights and then just slip my shoes back on without my manager being any the wiser!
I pass it around to my girlfriends and now I have converted them all! It is refreshing and soothing and I love the fact that it is not messy and so quick and easy to use. I always carry a bottle in my handbag and take it to work every day. The bottle is so small I hardly notice it, to be honest. Also, although the bottle contains only 100ml, it really does last a long time as I tend not to have to use very much to get the desired effect.
Wonderful product and yet another Body Shop product I am thrilled with.

I hate to wear open toed shoes or sandals, and so over the summer and during hotter weather I do suffer the consequences with overheated feet. I was looking for something that would help freshen up my feet and came across this Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray. It is made by The Body Shop and is available exclusively from their high street stores, via home party sales orders, or online at www.thebodyshop.co.uk. It costs £5.00 and comes in a 100ml bottle.
Product description: "Cooling menthol and refreshing Community Trade peppermint oil instantly revives tired feet and gives lasting freshness. A summer essential.
+ Helps to combat odour"
I originally bought this at the beginning of summer so that I could use it through the warmer months and get the benefit from it. I have recently dug it out of my cupboard again and have been using it over the past few days in the lovely mini-heatwave we've been experiencing here in the South-West.
The foot spray comes in a clear plastic bottle with a cap lid and a pump spray to dispense the product. The spray is a lovely bright blue colour which shows through the bottle clearly and allows you to easily see how much you have left. The blue colour does not show up on my skin and it appears to dry colourless without marking or staining fabrics.
It is fairly easy to use this spray; just spritz it on to bare feet. The only difficulty I sometimes have is now that my bottle is nearing the end, I have to hold it at a particular angle to be able to spray the stuff out onto the feet, which usually involves me sitting on the floor and sticking my feet up in the air so I can keep the bottle upright to use the pump spray. I ususally give 2 sprays over the sole of my foot, and sometimes give an additional spray over the top of my foot as well. I only use this when I feel I actually need it, so it hasn't been used every day, but even so it has lasted me well through the last few months and I have still got enough left in the bottle for another 6-8 weeks judging on my previous usage.
The Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray claims to offer 3 main benefits: cooling, refreshing, and combating odours. I will review these in reverse order to how they are listed here, as this goes in order of best effects to worst.
Firstly, combating odour. Hot feet means sweaty feet which means smelly feet. Pretty obvious, but this is something that I think everyone is keen to avoid or at least minimise. With my refusal to bare my feet even in scorching weather, I do end up with them sweating inside my shoes and at the end of the day there can be a definite whiff when I get home and take my shoes off. The Peppermint Cooling Spray has a lovely strong scent which really helps to cover up any foot odour. It smells strong and fresh like peppermint, but also has a sweet side to it as well which reminds me of syrup. This scent will last for a short while after application and does seem to reduce any bad smells.
Secondly, refreshing. The spray can feel a bit cold when first applied as the liquid is being sprayed directly onto warm skin. This does feel a bit funny at first but once you've got used to the feeling of the spray hitting your feet then this feels refreshing and provides a nice relief for hot feet, especially if I've been walking around a lot (which applies to me every day, I walk practically everywhere). Not quite as nice as giving my feet a nice soak in cool water, but great for a quick fix and I keep this in my shoes cupboard near the front door. This is particularly handy so that as soon as I've got home I can kick my shoes off and then spray this straight onto my feet before continuing on with other chores, as it usually takes up a few hours before I will settle down and have a relax in the evening before bedtime and I don't have time to sit and soak my feet as soon as I get home from work every day.
Thirdly, cooling. Now this was the worst part for me and my main problem is the after-effect that I have experienced when using the spray. Peppermint oil is a strong inrgedient, and even though I only use 2-3 sprays on each foot when I apply this spray it always makes my feet tingle. Sometimes the effect is minimal, but more often than not I will experience a very strong and uncomfortable feeling. Instead of having a cooling effect, it ends up so that my feet are tingling at first, then stinging, then burning. This does not occur straight away as the product is sprayed on, but will happen some short while afterwards and can then last anything up to 20 or 30 minutes before the feeling fully subsides. For this reason alone I would not purchase the spray again, although I am loathed to throw it away and just take my chances to see whether or not I will just get a tingle or a full on stinging result. When I do get the burning feeling it is always across the whole of the soles of my feet and can be quite intense. This is especially bad when I am still being active as walking around with this discomfort can cause my muscles to feel tight.
Overall, The Body Shop Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray is refreshing and works to combat odours, but I have found it unpleasant to use on many occasions because of the strong stinging / burning sensation I often experience and this makes me unable to give it a good recommendation.
The Body Shop are against animal testing - please keep your beauty cruelty free!
This spray costs £5 for 100ml, and I believe it is good value. You can also get 10% with a Love Your Body card which you can get online or in store. The spray lasts well; I have had mine for a few months and only about a third has gone. You only need a few sprays on your legs and feet to get the effect.
I bought the spray to help cool my feet and legs down, and I have found it really nice to use. When your feet are hot in the summer for example or after a long day at work I spray a few sprays and they instantly feel cooler. It also smells really nice, with a minty fragrance and is very refreshing. The scent is also quite energising and I really like using the spray for this effect. It is great to use also on your legs after a long day at work for the effect; I also find it makes me feel more relaxed.
To use the spray, you just remove the cap and spray. The bottle is nice as it is see-through so you can see how much you have left. The spray also contains community fair trade peppermint oil, so is quite natural.
I will definitely be buying another when mine runs out!
I work in retail and spend all day standing up on the shop floor. The first thing I do when I get home is spray my hot, tired feet with this great product from the Body Shop! It instantly makes your feet feel cool, refreshed and relaxed...ready for whatever I have in store for them that evening!
I first discovered the Peppermint Cooling Spray when I was shopping with my mum in our local shopping centre. I never really venture into The Body Shop as it wasn't with all the other shops and was out of the way but my mum needed to buy some make up. As I was looking around I come across the cooling spray and thought it was handy for any time my feet got a little hot. I bought the small 100ml bottle for around £3 which I thought was a little expensive as I was unsure whether it did its job or not.
I started to use the spray first thing in the morning to before a hard day standing on my feet for most of the time. I recommend that you use only one to two squirts on each foot because if you use more I found that it can be that cooling it can numb your feet which wasn't what I wanted first thing in the morning. As the bottle is only small I found it handy to carry around in my bag incase I was in need of it during the day, which for me I found that I didn't really need it.
The push down spray bottle has a light blue liquid in which makes the product look refreshing. This is an ideal way to show that the product is going to do exactly what you think it should do and catches the eyes of customers. The bottle is quick and easy to use as all that needs to be done is pushed down. Which is so much easier than using any creams and there is less mess. Please note that the dispenser is facing your foot and not you as it may hurt if you get it near your eyes.
For me I found the cooling peppermint spray to do exactly what it is set out do to. The smell of the peppermint is strong and refreshing exactly what you need to keep your feet cool and fresh. It is easy to use and there is no mess you need to clean up afterwards which is great for if you are in a rush. I have also found that if you use it once or twice a day it can last for a few months which makes the £3 go a long way. As it is a small round bottle it is easy to fit in your bag with your other belongings meaning it can be taken anywhere with you for the times you are in need of some freshness.
For me there aren't really any disadvantages. Maybe be if that you use more then two squirts on one foot it can become that cooling it numbs your feet. The Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray can also be expensive for some people but it definitely does the job it is meant to. The directions of how to use the product aren't very clear on the label it just says keep away from the eyes, which you surely would be doing as it is for your feet.
I believe this to be the perfect spray for keeping your feet cool and fresh for a small amount of money. The product is an all round breath of fresh air
This review is for one of my favourite Bodyshop products the product is Peppermint cooling foot spray.
----WHAT IT DOES----
This product will cool and sooth hot, tired aching feet.
The spray come in a 100ml size bottle which is just the right size to pop in a handbag, the bottle is transparent making it easy to see how much is left, the cap is black and is easy to remove but not so loose that it would come off in your bag.
-----HOW TO USE-----
The spray should be used on your feet and ankle for instant cooling soothing effect, the pump action bottle delivers just the right amount of spray at one time, simply spray lightly over feet and ankles to feel the cooling effect.
The best thing about this spray is that it can also be used through your tights or thin socks so ideal for use in the office without having to go and take off your tights.
I have tried the spray over thin socks and can confirm that it is just as effective and does not stain clothing.
-----MY IMPRESSIONS OF THE SPRAY-----
I really like this spray it really does work on hot tired feet just a couple of sprays and the soothing pale blue spray cools your feet right down.
The peppermint smell is lovely it is not too overpowering and leaves your feet smelling fresh.
There is no sticky residue left after spraying and the liquid is absorbed into the skin quickly, the effects however last for ages after applying.
I usually carry this around during the summer months as I find if my feet are cool and comfy then the rest of me is too, I can't stand having uncomfortable feet and this is a lifesaver on shopping trips.
I often pop a bottle of this in the fridge when at home and the senation of the already very effective cooling spray when it has been chilled before use is just heavenly.
The footspray is available from the Bodyshop priced at £5.00 for 100ml, on the face of it a little pricier than some but worth it as a little goes a long way and it is the most effective footspray that I have used.
----TO SUM UP-----
A perfect little bottle of cooling peppermint that is very effective at cooling and soothing hot, tired feet and keeping odors at bay.
5 Stars for this product.
I first tried this product when I was about 15. 7 years on and I'm still a faithful buyer of this product! Sizes and prices have changed a bit over the years, I believe the larger bottle, 100ml, now costs around a fiver. I still think it's well worth every penny.
Here's what you can expect: a fantastic, refreshing, minty smell in a spritz bottle that, once applied, cools down your feet with a sort of cold tingly sensation. And you really don't need to overdo it, a couple of sprays will be more than enough. I then recommend putting your feet up and relaxing!
You should find that if used sparingly like this the bottle will last you for months! You can even use it through socks/tights, and it'll still work. Fantastic!
I believe it does say so on the bottle, but make sure you spray from a distance to get maximum coverage of your skin from one spray. Another good reason not to spray it too much: the smell can become very overpowering!
I've always loved body shop products and have never really been disappointed by anything I purchase from there. This product is no exception and may even be one of my favourites!
It comes in a 100ml bottle. As it's quite small, its easy to carry around in your handbag however, it still lasts a long time. I normally have to buy a new bottle every few months and I use it frequently. The main reason why is lasts so long is you don't need to many sprays per use. The smell is quite strong though not overwhelming as well as being long lasting plus the spray normally covers most of your foot in one go.
It feels amazing each time I use it and it still surprises me how it can feel so relaxing. After a long walk, using this is usually the first thing I do. It not only gets rid of foot odour but it also makes your feet feel tingly (in a nice way). It cools your feet instantly and takes seconds to evaporate as long as you don't use to much.
As its body shop you are promised that the product isn't tested on animals but along with this promise comes the high price. Its around £3 which may seem like quite a lot. When I first saw it I certainly thought this too until I used it and ever since seems quite cheap to me. However, there are much cheaper options out there so this is still a turn off for most.
Would I recommend it? Yes. Definitely. This has to be one of my favourite body shop products so would encourage other body shop lovers to try this one out. Treat yourself :)
If you spend your days standing on your feet then this is the product for you. Anyone who has used another peppermint body product will know that the peppermint's properties have a very pleasant cooling effect, which is just want you want on your feet after a hard day at work! I would consider myself to be familiar with many of the Body Shops foot care products and I have found the cooling spray to be a very handy and effective method of dealing with hot and sore feet, as well as unpleasant foot and shoe odours.
Although the Body Shops products are popular and well known for their good quality and essentially natural ingredients as most excellent products do, they often seem to come with a high price tag. Often this acts as a slight deterrent, especially when it is an essential every day item. However the cooling foot spray's retail price is a low three pounds for a 60ml bottle or five pounds for 100mls, which is very good value for this product. Like many of foot or hand care range, this product is often part of a three for two or a discount offer, making it an even better buy!
The cooling foot spray comes in a handy little bottle, the perfect size to slip into your handbag making it ideal to use whilst at work for some foot refreshment; after a long walk or a few trips up and down the stairs this product makes all the difference! One bonus I have found is that as a spray, this product dries much quicker than a foot moisturising or cream would do, making it easy to use on the go. In my opinion this cooling foot spray is well worth a try if you are simply looking for a cooler for your feet.
