I have always suffered with hard skin on my feet and have used almost every cream on the market over the years from the very expensive to supermarket own makes. I bought this Vaseline Intensive Rescue hydrating foot cream from my local chemist and I paid £3.25. It comes in a 75ml tube which is blue and white and it has a blue flip top which it stand on so the cream is always at the squeezy end to make it easy to use. The cream itself is a creamy white colour and it is very thick and creamy and it has a sort of shine to it.
To use I will squeeze a small amount out onto the bottom of my foot and then use a circular motion to rub it all around my foot paying particular attention to my heels which is where I get the most hard skin. The cream really does go a long way and it absorb well into your feet and doesn't leave any greasy film or residue as some cheaper creams can. It feels very cooling and soothing and your feet feel very smooth and soft afterwards. I find I get the best results if I use it for a few days on the trot and the results seem to last longer. My hands always feel lovely and soft after using this cream as you are obviously rubbing it into your hands as you are rubbing it into your feet.
This is a lovely luxurious cream which really does nourish and soften your feet and is perfect for everyday use as it is not too expensive. As it is not particularly floral it would be suitable for both sexes and my husband has actually used this one and he likes it. You can tell that it is a good quality product and it is a pleasure to use and I do recommend it to others.
First thing you should know i have the dryest feet! I guess because i walk miles in flip flops and never wear socks. I used to spend a good half hour with a mock ped egg and creams etc to find within two days they were back where i started. So my search began for a cream after my aunty kindly told me she had used a really good cream but couldnt find it and didnt know the name.
Well i was in Poundland.. yes poundland and i spotted this vaseline tube which has the biggest big of writing spelling out 'foot' so upon closer inspection i see its intensive rescue hydrating foot rescue from our well known and trusted brand vaseline! So i thought given its vaseline and only a pound what can hurt. Now i know that would be my feet had i not tried this beauty!
In the same tube you would find a mini handcream. White tube flip top blue lid - average packaging.
So the tube advises it will soften and sooth within 5 days.....WRONG i felt and benefitted from much softer skin after 1 application. Trying my best here not to sound like something from a JML advert it really was great. My skin didnt catch on the bedclothes or feel sore at times in shoes. It isnt a cream you want to put on and then walk over your carpets i must admit but then again you wouldnt with any intensive moisturiser as clearly its going to be much greasier. It doesnt feel greasy to touch so much so i just rub the remainder onto my hands and they get the benefit too. I dont have to wash my hands after application so its not too greasy.
It states to be unfragranced and it is that just has the same sort of chemical cream smell like e45. I have searched through the boots website only to find the exact same cream but for hands( no feet one) at 3.77 so i imagine they would stock it in store. I will be giving the hand cream a go.
I would buy this even at full price but now i know what full price is i will be seeing if poundland still got it and stocking up! It has lasted me well and i really do apply generously!
The skin on my feet is as soft as a babies bum, but my partners feet, now that's a different matter, i think it's the high heels ( it's not the hard work!) that does it, or all that walking about town shopping! them ped-egg things look a bit rough so short of getting the black&decker sander out she needed another solution! joking aside dry cracked skin on your feet can be vary painful.
That's where i come into it, about once a week after a long soak in the bath (her not me) i tell her to sit down and put her feet up and i get the Vaseline intensive foot rescue out.............
A little 50ml white fat tube like a mini tooth past tube that stands on it's end so the contents is ready to squeeze out when you flip the blue lid open, the front has the Vaseline logo and tells you what's in the tub!
The back of the tub is full with blue writing on a white background that's so so small i am going to turn the lighting up and put my glasses on.......... No sorry i really can't read the writing, it's a bad print job so if you need to Know the ingredients you better take a magnifying glass with you!
The white cream has a thick consistency similar to an average hand cream, and has a light clean scent, I squeeze a small amount onto my finger and dab it on the bits that need help, usually the heal and the ball of the foot, then just massage the whole foot, It feels a little greasy at first but soon soaks in, you don't need to use much as it goes quite far.
Brownie points for me and soft feet for my partner! this cream really does soften the rough parts/hard skin on your feet, and makes the whole of your feet feel fresh and cool, It was a little more greasy then i expected but if your skin is dry and cracking i think it's the oils in this product you need to get your feet soft again, i can feel her feet are a lot softer now and she says her feet feel a lot better and less painful when walking.
You also have to consider that a regular foot massage with any cream will help to soften hard skin, but i think this product helped a lot more then your average moisturiser.
You can buy Vaseline hydrating foot cream from Boots, Savers and some supermarkets for about £3.00, a bit pricey but worth it as it does work well, unfortunately my revitalising foot massage is not available in high street shops!
